DOUBLEYOU Yacht Charter Motor Boat
Formerly named CONTINENTAL DRIFTER II when owned by popular American music singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett, this 89'/27 m expedition yacht cruised around the SE Asian region for several years before being completely refitted. She was relaunched in March 2020, renamed DOUBLEYOU, and is now available for charter in SE Asia, cruising the beautiful region of the Philippines. The yacht was stripped completely and rebuilt from scratch. Starting from the strong and durable, all-fibreglass hull, a light interior with tasteful furnishings was created. This perfect family holiday yacht has a beach house atmosphere, complemented by striking art work. Besides her colourful history - cabins are named after long-term celebrity guests - DOUBLEYOU offers the perfect, stable platform for a comfortable family vacation. She is a super strong vessel with many amenities, including state-of-the-art dive gear (2020) and many water toys for everyone to enjoy. Expedition yacht DOUBLEYOU has a long range (4,300 nm); she is capable to cruise beautiful, unexplored regions in the Philippines for long periods without refueling. A professional photo shoot of the newly refitted DOUBLEYOU had been planned for April 2020 in the Philippines but alas! The photo/VDO shoot will be rescheduled as soon as travel and marine traffic is possible and in the meantime, enjoy the snapshots included here.

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.
