Yacht Rentals Terms


Based in Nice, the heart of Mediterranean yachting, "ServiceAzur" group of companies offers a premier selection of luxury boats for rent along the French Riviera. Specializing in bespoke yachting experiences, we provide everything from private vacation charters to custom itineraries in the French and Italian Rivieras. With a focus on boat rental and technical expertise, we ensure every sailing experience is seamless and superior, tailored to each client's individual preferences.


Effective planning is crucial for a refined maritime leisure experience. Key considerations include selecting the appropriate type of yacht, determining the number of guests, outlining a suitable itinerary, considering onboard amenities, and establishing a budget. Addressing these fundamental elements initially ensures a streamlined and coherent process in choosing and customizing your yacht charter.

Types of Yachts

Our fleet caters to diverse tastes and needs:

  • Luxury Motor Yachts: Known for speed, modern amenities, and comfortable interiors, including a two-tiered superstructure and open upper deck. Ideal for long trips, these yachts can reach speeds of up to 40 knots but have higher fuel consumption.
  • Sailing Yachts: Offering a romantic and eco-friendly experience, these yachts are propelled mainly by wind power, resulting in quieter journeys with a natural tilt deck and dependency on wind direction.
  • Motor-Sailing Yachts: Combining the benefits of motor and sailing yachts, these vessels offer natural propulsion and independence from weather conditions.
  • Mega-Yachts & Super-Yachts: The epitome of luxury, these yachts are equipped with amenities ranging from Jacuzzis to helipads.

Onboard Amenities

Luxury yachts are synonymous with a wide range of exclusive and high-end amenities, designed to transform every voyage into an experience of unparalleled comfort and recreation. These vessels typically feature advanced water sports equipment, such as jet skis and wakeboards, for those seeking adventure on the waves. For entertainment and connectivity, they are equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual systems and reliable satellite or cellular phone connections. The essence of luxury is further embodied in the lavish additions found onboard. These include fully-equipped fitness centers for health enthusiasts, serene massage rooms for relaxation, and well-stocked mini-bars in cabins for a touch of indulgence. The larger mega-yachts elevate this experience further, offering sophisticated onboard restaurants and casinos, turning the journey into a floating luxury resort with every possible amenity at your fingertips.

Booking Terms

Our yacht charter fee comprehensively covers the hire of the yacht, crew costs, and marine insurance, while food is not included. We adhere to the standard MYBA (Mediterranean Yacht Brokers Association) contract, which guarantees transparency and satisfaction for our clients.

  • Charter Fee Payment: 50% of the charter fee is due upon signing the MYBA Charter Agreement. The remaining 50% and the Advanced Provisioning Allowance (APA) are payable no later than one month before the charter begins.
  • APA (Advanced Provisioning Allowance): This is a deposit to cover additional costs not included in the charter fee, typically accounting for about 30% of the rental cost. It covers expenses such as fuel, food and beverages, harbor fees, communication costs, and any special equipment or services requested by the client.
  • Booking Less Than One Month in Advance: If the yacht is hired less than one month before the delivery date, 100% of the charter fee and the APA are due and payable upon signing the agreement.
  • Additional Costs: APA covers the actual fuel cost, including delivery and redelivery of the yacht, entertainment-related fuel use (e.g., for water skis, jet skis), food and beverages for passengers, harbor fees, communication costs onboard, and fees for any additional services or equipment requested.
