The Captain: Xavier Triguier
Diplomas : BPPV - Captain 200 - STCW95

Impassioned by the sea and by travelling, Xavier worked as a sailing instructor in France and as a windsurfing instructor in Spain for 2 years.
Following that he worked as manager of a beach restaurant in the Dominican Republic for 4 years and as a sailing instructor in Brazil for 2 years. These additional experiences allowed him to learn other languages and cultures and gave him a strong knowledge of human relations which is very important for a good charter captain.
During these years, he sailed extensively, more than 10 000 miles (including 6 transatlantic crossings, one trans-Pacific, and sailing in English Channel and the Mediterranean Sea).
He worked in the past 10 years on captain on S/Y NAEJ 50’, on Barbuda Belle (L620) and on Vacoa (L620).
Xavier is a very reliable captain and attentive to every guest’s needs

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. Kindly contact us for a proposal that details the yacht’s final rate and availability.
