OVER REEF Yacht Charter Motor Boat
Over Reef is a brand-new 54 ft power catamaran designed by the Italian architect Stefano Nolletti and delivered in 2019. The volume, comfort, large living spaces, headroom, one-level floor, and one of a kind fly-bridge make it without any doubt the most comfortable private charter for couples of families available in the Maldives. Over Reef offers modern solutions in terms of design, such as the electric sun-visor, a one-of-a-kind feature offering light and fresh breezy balcony to the bow cabins. Her wide beam offers large living spaces and makes Over Reef a very efficient and stable yacht. Over Reef accommodates up to 6 guests in 3 cabins. Master and VIP cabins are at the bow, and both have glass door to access the forward deck. Over Reef, without interior steps, in order to greatly enhance the living comfort as well as safety on board, is the ideal solution at sea for families and also for a more elderly guests. Over Reef is equipped with a large, comfortable, and fast motorized tender for excursions, islands visits, and fishing. Over Reef has been also designed for the most comfortable and private scuba diving in the archipelago with a large dedicated aft-deck. None of the other local boats can perform diving directly from the yacht as you can do from Over Reef.

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.
