Blue Moon Yacht Charter Catamaran
This brand new, fully loaded 2018 Lagoon 52F is now available for charter in Phuket (launched in mid. December 2017). Price includes two crew (skipper and hostess) and excludes food and fuel. Be among the first to charter this incredible yacht! The Lagoon shipyard together with their yacht design partner VPLP who have used their experience of competitive sailing in developing a new style for a whole new generation of Lagoons, the Lagoon 52 is the first model introducing this new generation. With its diamond-shaped vertical bows, contemporary styled hulls and its levitated hardtop and with a taller rig moved aft the Lagoon 52 stands out from the crowd. But its originality goes a great deal further than just its “outer” appearance, or even its interior layout. The saloon encompasses the lounge and dining table to starboard, a large galley to port which leads to direct access to the cockpit, together with the chart table in the middle, facing out to sea. This Lagoon 52F in 2018 hull is in 5 cabin versions, including 4 queen cabins all with en-suite bathrooms and separate showers, and a bunk bed cabin with en-suite head. The cabins have incomparable natural lighting thanks to the fixed hull windows, together with excellent ventilation thanks to the deck hatches and portholes that open out to the hull-side or to the cockpit. The mast is located further to aft, which brings many advantages on a cruising catamaran: a large forward triangle allows a larger sails choice: a promise for great performance. The shorter boom makes the mainsail much easier to maneuver. The mainsail, which is relatively narrower and higher, benefits from better winds at the top, thus enhancing performance by re-centering the weight in this way, pitching is considerably reduced. The yacht is accessed via open aft transoms, facilitating boarding and disembarking. She has broad side decks, with recessed deck hatches. The cockpit is level with the saloon, and has an outdoor lounge and sun-lounging area to starboard. The fly bridge is reached either by a staircase leading from the cockpit, or by another leading from the deck on the starboard side. The steering station is positioned in the centre of the flybridge, giving the skipper perfect visibility. All ropes and controls are located on the flybridge, away from the living areas. A tilting steering wheel is also found which can be adjusted to three different positions, giving the skipper perfect visibility under sail or when maneuvering. SY Blue Moon has been successfully launched and start providing high quality level charter services to her customers.

Crew gratuity, although optional is customary at 15% - 20% of the charter rate for the Caribbean and 10% - 15% for the Mediterranean.
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.
