Before starting to work aboard luxury charter yachts and cook culinary masterpieces for guests from all parts of the world, Mehmet worked in Istanbul. There he was mastering kitchens in luxury restaurants and hotels, always improving and polishing his skills. In wintertime, Mehmet comes back to Istanbul to spend time with his wife and two kids. Chef Mehmet doesn’t only please the tastes of his guests with various dishes of Turkish and Ottoman cuisines, Italian, French, and Japanese, but also with his own recipes. He loves using inspiration and experimenting with ingredients, tastes, and decors of his dishes. Mehmet is also excellent in pastry making. These are his own secrets, but we’d love to know how he makes those brownies and meringues so light and sweet to a turn. When not working, Mehmet loves being with his family, spending time near the sea and swimming, travelling and vising historical places. It is Chef Mehmet’s third year aboard “Virtuoso” luxury yacht.

Inclusions and exclusion are not standardized across the different yachts, with each offering slightly different terms. Please contact us for a proposal that details the yacht’s availability and individual pricing based on the number of guests in your party, as well as the list of the inclusions and exclusions for that particular yacht.
This Yacht offers a “Plus Expenses” Rate:
Included are the Yacht and its onboard equipment as well as the Captain, Chef and Crew’s services.
Excluded are food and beverages, fuel for the yacht and its tender, any dockage, airport transfers costs, onshore excursions and tours, as well as any cruising permits, licenses and other charter related expenses. 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.
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.
