Endless Possibilities

Our portfolio of private yacht charters covers the full spectrum from sailing yachts to high performance motor yachts. Your Fraser charter broker will help you navigate the world of yacht charters available and will work with you to create a charter vacation that suits your exact taste and budget. The flexibility and privacy of a luxury yacht is the ultimate extravagance. Chartering allows you the indulgence of only unpacking your bags once yet visiting a different port of call every day.
 
 

How to Charter

The best way to charter a yacht is to work with a trusted broker like those at Fraser who will listen to your requirements and then find the perfect yacht in your dream destination and ensure that an incredible itinerary is created to provide you with the holiday of a lifetime. All you need to do is follow the simple steps below and we’ll take care of the rest:

  • Look at the destinations on this website and choose where you want to go
  • Look at the yachts on this website and choose which ones suit your taste and requirements
  • Think about how many people you will be and what you want to do
  • Contact one of our charter brokers and let them know your choices
  • Your broker will provide you with a selection of yachts meeting your requirements and guide you through the selection process
  • Decide on your final yacht, sign the MYBA Charter Agreement and finalise your booking
  • Relax while your broker liaise with the Captain to create the perfect itinerary for you
 
 

When should I book my charter?

We suggest that you book your charter at least six months in advance in order to be sure of getting your preferred yacht and dates. However, bear in mind that some of the most popular yachts can be fully booked up to a year in advance. It is also worth thinking about whether you are chartering around an event or not, as this can affect availability too.
 
 

What can we do ashore?

Whether you prefer diving colourful reefs or lounging on a white sand beach; dining on five-star cuisine or a beach BBQ; strolling between sophisticated shops or quaint fishing villages, we’ll arrange unique experiences for you.  There is also an endless array of special events to plan your holiday around when organising your private charter: Cannes Film Festival, Monaco Grand Prix, Cricket World Cup and the prestigious America’s Cup; the possibilities are endless and no request is unthinkable.
 
 

What can we do on board?

Relax and enjoy yourself while the crew tends to your every whim. All yachts offer a range of facilities such as toys for fun on and under the water, plenty of sun-bathing options or movies to watch and fine dining from your personal chef. Some yachts may also have spa facilities or a yoga instructor on board, and of course you can always go ashore just as you would on a normal holiday. Whatever you desire we’ll arrange a unique experience for you.
 
 

Which regions of the world can we explore?

From Antibes to Zanzibar and everywhere in between, our brokers travel extensively to seek out the most captivating and enchanting sailing destinations for your holiday. From charming New England to the exotic South Pacific, together, we’ll select your own stunning backdrop, whether it’s the spectacular Seychelles archipelago with romantic bays or the sophisticated and star-studded coastline of the Cote d’Azur. Our yachts are spread far and wide around the globe allowing you to explore a wide variety of cruising destinations.
 
 

How long is a charter?

A standard yacht charter is normally seven full days, so if you board at 3pm on a Saturday you can stay until 3pm the following Saturday. Charterers may choose to book the yacht for a longer or shorter period, although some yachts will not accept shorter bookings during the peak season. Day charters are also possible in certain locations, but your broker will be happy to advise as, of course, this can vary by yacht, region and season.
 
 

What role will the crew play?

The professional crew will offer you top-class personal service around the clock. They’re at your disposal and ready to serve from the moment you board. Your Captain will suggest an itinerary, but you’re not locked into any program. If you find the perfect spot, opt to linger longer! Your chef will provide a sample menu of the yacht’s cuisine and will be delighted to adjust their fare to your palate. The crew members will be experienced at entertaining yacht owners and guests, including celebrities and prominent statesmen. If desired, our charter brokers can include a non-disclosure clause in your charter contract.
 
 

Can we make phone calls and receive emails on board?

Don’t be worried about staying in touch with your business, family and friends. Many of the modern motor and sailing yachts for charter are equipped with the very latest state-of-the-art technology and communications equipment including cellular service, global satellite telecommunications and personal computers. Off course, if you want to completely switch off, that is possible too!
 
 

What is an APA?

Whilst the charter price includes the cost of chartering the yacht, the crew and the yacht’s insurance, other items such as fuel, dockage, food and beverages are paid separately by the charterer through the Advanced Provisioning Allowance (APA). This is normally estimated at an additional 20-30% of the charter rate. All expenses are accounted for by the Captain and if, at the end of the charter, there are any unused funds they will be returned to the charterer.
 
 

How much tax (VAT) will I pay?

Each country has its own tax policy and the rate can vary widely throughout the world. However our highly experienced charter brokers keep up to date with all the latest policies and will be able to advise you at the time of booking.
