How to Charter a Private Yacht

Are you ready for a vacation made up of your most fantastic dreams and fantasies? It can be as easy as starting a dialogue with a MarineMax charter agent. As the most exclusive and personalized travel experience you can envision, you'll make the memories of a lifetime for you, your family and your guests. 

Have a dream. Do you want to explore unspoiled islands virtually untouched by man? Enjoy a massage on board your floating resort in the Eastern or Western Mediterranean? Paddleboard in Antarctica? If you can conceive it, it can be done.

Contact a MarineMax Private Yacht Charter agent. Our vacation experts will guide you through the process so you can learn about the rare and delightful world of the yacht charter vacation. Your MarineMax agent will discover and recommend yachts to you that are best suited to your tastes and charter profile and recommend the very best yachts and crews for your consideration.

The steps to a vacation of a lifetime:

  • Select a season or time of year to schedule your charter
  • Work with your charter agent to identify various yachts in terms of accommodation plans, number of guests in the charter party, power or sail, yacht style,amenities, water toys, and of course, your charter destination
  • Discuss the various skills of the captains and crews best suited in terms of tending to your needs
  • Discuss the cruising itinerary with your charter representative and captain once you have selected your yacht
  • Correspond and communicate with the chef or cook as to your menu preferences, favorite wines, and other consumables
  • Book your charter! Standard terms of reserving the yacht can be discussed with your charter vacation specialist but routinely 50% of the charter hire is required to reserve the yacht
  • The balance of the charter hire is ordinarily due no later than two weeks prior to the start of the charter along with your APA (Advance Provisioning Allowance) which is an estimate of the consumables based on your menu, wines, liquors, fuel estimate based on your cruising itinerary, and other incidentals all of which can be delineated by your charter agent

In terms of pace, you can be as busy as you like cruising between ports or perhaps ask your captain to find you an anchorage that simply lets you watch the world go by as you relish in the delights of Mother Nature and a golden setting sun. Of course, a highlight of any yacht charter is the cuisine which is yours to plan with the chef to the “nth” degree or as many charter guests just tell the cook or chef, "surprise us!"

Turn your dreams into your most memorable vacation aboard a private yacht charter. It's as easy as imagining where you want to be and when. Your MarineMax yacht charter expert will take it from there.
