Our captains do far more than just move the yacht from point A to point B, they set the tone for your entire charter experience. Prior to your charter, the captain will create a sample itinerary for your yacht vacation and recommend alternative options. They have relationships with land-based contacts for special excursions and access to the best marinas and exotic spots. The most important job of a captain though is being responsible for the safety of everyone onboard including guests and crew.
One of the most exciting aspects of a yacht charter is the many water sports activities at your fingertips. The deck crew is responsible for your safety while you are having “fun in the sun.” They are also in charge of the maintenance and care of all tenders and toys, and the upkeep of the exterior of the yacht. Tenders, wave runners, wakeboards, paddle boards, kayaks, snorkeling gear, diving equipment, fishing rods, bicycles, and scooters, are just a few examples of the “toys” you may find on board a charter yacht.
Crews are crucial for running safe and successful yacht excursions. Our interior team handles everything from food and beverage service, laundry, room cleaning and turndowns, general interior maintenance, table décor, wine selection, and pampering. There may only be one person who handles all interior tasks. Regardless of the size, the interior staff is there to ensure you are carefree, able to relax, and want for nothing.
Prior to your yacht vacation, you will fill out a food and beverage preference sheet. Some people prefer to only list allergies and dislikes allowing the chef unrestricted culinary freedom. The chef will provision before you arrive and during the charter to ensure that the yacht is constantly stocked with the freshest and finest ingredients. Certain destinations might have limited provisioning and the chef will do what it takes to make your dining experience enjoyable. The crew will do everything possible to procure your preferences. If you have very specific and special requests let your captain and/or chef know in advance so that everyone can work together to make it happen for you.
