As a child, Jean-Baptiste used to sail with his parents who owned a small sailing
yacht which introduce him to the world of yachting. He has just returned back from several
deliveries on a sailing yacht from France to Greece. Cheerful, smiling and always in
a good mood, he loves reading as well as traveling when he can. He has
always been keen to learn extra skills he comes across in order to cure his
curiosity and enrich himself, a Captain people can truly rely on. He used to be

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.
