Charter Guide

Yacht Etiquette

Your yacht and crew are delighted to welcome you onboard. They are responsible for your care and safety, as well as that of the superyacht you are chartering. As such, there are rules to ensure your charter runs both smoothly and safely. Shoes for ashore should not be worn onboard. Instinctively, you will kick them off and feel more relaxed barefoot or in soft deck shoes, but it also protects the decks, which are no simple thing to replace. If you usually travel with your pet, please ensure you have advised your charter broker so that they can find you a suitably pet-friendly yacht. Many owners do not permit pets onboard. Your superyacht is designed to be sleek and seaworthy, so they don’t always offer an abundance of storage space for large, hard cases. Where possible, pack in soft luggage bags or check in advance how many cases can be stowed. Many guests look forward to trying high speed watersports with personal watercraft (e.g. waverunners and jetskis) but in many areas this is only permitted if you have an appropriate license and meet with local operating regulations. We can advise you on the yachts that are registered training centres, or on where to obtain the correct license before your charter. For yachts that don’t have scuba diving facilities, it is usually possible to arrange onshore with a local company. While it’s tempting to pack in as many locations and activities as possible on your charter, to enjoy the yachting lifestyle and all your yacht has to offer, we suggest a maximum of 6 hours cruising per day.


Events Charter

We have yachts for every occasion: from intimate weddings to fun parties or important corporate events. Our professionalism, knowledge and experience in the world of event chartering are second to none. We operate event charters during the legendary Monaco F1 Grand Prix and Cannes Film Festival, MIPIM, MIDEM and MITV; as well as dozens of private client events throughout the year. Brief our expert event management team and we will arrange the perfect superyacht at the Monaco Grand Prix, with a berth in Port Hercules, in the middle of the action. You will have the perfect vantage point from your sun deck, where your guests will be served ice-cold champagne and endless canapés by expert crew, as they enjoy the incredible sights and sounds of being trackside. Our dedicated team will take care of every detail, from berth reservation to nightclub tickets, restaurant bookings and helicopters. Need hostesses, cocktail menus, or live master sushi chefs? Consider it done. With only a limited number of berths available in peak season, our contacts and local savvy are what ensures our guests are never left on the starting grid. Let us manage every detail of your critical meeting, party, poker night or inspirational product launch onboard a yacht that will really put your event on the map, in a location with front row seats at the world’s most exclusive events.
