However, it’s important to understand the costs associated with a luxury yacht charter experience. In France, for example, a Value Added Tax (VAT) of 20% is added to the cost of the charter. This can significantly impact the overall cost of the experience, so it’s important to factor it into your budget.

Additionally, many charter agreements include an Advanced Provisioning Allowance (APA) which is a sum of money that is paid upfront to cover the cost of fuel, food, and other expenses during the charter. This allows for easy and hassle-free provisioning during the trip, ensuring that everything is taken care of and allowing guests to fully relax and enjoy the experience.

A luxury yacht charter experience can vary in cost depending on the type of yacht, the destination, and the length of the charter. Typically, luxury yacht charters start at around €15,000 per week for a small yacht and can go up to several hundred thousand euros per week for larger, more luxurious yachts. This cost usually includes the yacht, crew, and insurance, but not expenses such as fuel, food, and drinks.
