Our team endeavors to provide up to date and accurate information regarding each yacht in our listing, however some yachts reserve the right to make last minute changes to their availability and rates. With this in mind, please note that premium rates may be attached to certain destinations and dates, such as Christmas and New Years in the Caribbean or July and August in the Mediterranean. Kindly contact us for a proposal that details the yacht’s final rate and availability.
Close relationships are often developed between our guests and the crew. With some of the every-year-returning-guests we experience a friendship which reaches far outside the days of sailing. When choosing our crew we look for people with experience of life, a curiosity for other people's stories and an ability to listen. We find those characteristics important for being able to create interesting relationship between people.
Janne likes challenges, either it is in stormy weather or running comprehensive IT projects for the government. After thirty years of giving people the opportunity to be a part of his experiences from the sea he conveys a feeling of rough seamanship together with a warm welcoming. With Janne you never feel the atmosphere is uncomfortable or feel like a beginner a board, he explains it all to you patiently.
Kerstin´s mix of experiences has created a personality that sets an atmosphere a board built on our key phrase, customer care. She serves newly baked bread for breakfast and in the afternoon the yacht again has an aroma of a bakery. She anticipates the guests and their needs either it is a question of an extra quilt or a particular tea for breakfast. When Kerstin serves her three course meals with a smile on her face she personifies the expression "A Happy Ship".

Advanced Provisioning Allowance:
For "Plus Expenses" charters, yachts request an Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA), which is generally estimated at 20% - 25% of the base charter fee for sailing yachts (catamarans and monohulls) and at 30%-35% for motor yachts. The APA essentially creates a bank account for the Captain to purchase provisions, fuel, dockage, food, beverages, bar, and other consumables on the charterer's behalf. The Captain will keep all receipts and manage a running balance of the account, so that expenditures can be checked at any time. Any amount not used will be refunded at the end of the charter. If during the charter the costs have exceeded the collected APA, then additional funds will be required for the outstanding bills. All purchases are transparent and nothing is marked up. The APA is used purely for the charterer's provisions and charter-related expenses.
