SERENITY 86 Yacht Charter Motor Sailer
Serenity 86 is a sleek and modern motor sailer that was launched in 2007 and has been well maintained to remain in brand new condition. Her light colour wooden interior finish is supported by spa like white bathrooms to provide a very airy and soothing ambience. Glossy mahogany strips and shiny stainless steel framing are tastefully integrated on the white coloured exterior. One of the unique distinctions of this yachts is that the quality of sound insulation used together with the fact that the generators and ventilation systems have been position far away from the cabins means that almost no noise or vibration can be heard while the air-conditioning is running. With a very comfortable aft dining area, bimini covered forward deck and a flybridge that can easily sit eight guests, this vessel offers no less exterior space than one would find in motor yachts along the 30m range. The yacht is equipped with all the modern amenities and games as well as a generous range of water sports. Serenity 86 is also a great option for guests who like to open sails to enjoy quiet crossings and take in the views.

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.
