One of the most common questions posed to charter brokers is, “What does, ‘plus all expenses’ mean? A very fair question. It is critical to understand the implications. In specific, since the cost to enjoy a Mediterranean yacht charter holiday, for example, is more than expected. For instance, based on prices posted on most charter brokers’ websites.
Superyachts are the large, ultra-luxurious vessels that we associate with cruising. Specifically, the Côte d’Azur in the South of France in Monte Carlo for Monaco Grand Prix yacht charters. These yachts set a rate for the rental of the yacht and the crew. In addition, they list the price as, “plus running expenses.” This means that the charterer pays a set price for the yacht. Additionally, the charterer is responsible to cover ALL costs associated with the operation of the yacht while the charterer and his/her guests are onboard.
“When and how do you pay for these expenses, especially since it is hard to itemize them prior to the conclusion of the trip?”
Before you book your yacht charter, ask your broker for a solid estimate of the running expenses that might be incurred. Your broker takes into account the food and beverage preferences you request, along with how much cruising you wish to do (which will determine the amount, and anticipated cost, of fuel needed), to create an estimate of your expenses.
As a general rule of thumb, the APA requested for sailing yachts is approx 20% of the yacht’s listed charter price. On the contrary, motoryacht average APA jumps to 30-40%.

As the global recession continues to spread, the mega yacht charter marketplace is looking for creative ways to entice luxury yacht charter customers.
Consider the offer by the owner of motoryacht 4H. Reserve this yacht for a one week or longer Mediterranean yacht charter holiday. Subsequently, the owner will throw in his private jet to transport you to and from your charter destination.
The Challenger 604 private jet can accommodate 8 to 10 passengers. Transportation is offered to and from any major European metropolis, directly to an airfield near the yacht.
Upon arrival, you and your travel companions will enjoy the comforts of motoryacht 4H, a brand new 38.5 meter San Lorenzo luxury yacht. She features “sea terraces” on both sides of the main salon. In addition, in the master cabin and gym, as well. Her 007-James Bond-like lifting gull-wing doors on the bridge deck make her a showstopper.
Motoryacht 4H is available for a Mediterranean yacht charter. Her weekly rate is €110,000, plus all running expenses (items such as food, fuel, dockage, and bar).

As they say, Good things come to those who wait.
In the case of #Benetti yacht #ULYSSES, a more timely saying is, “You snooze…you lose!”
To encourage some pre-season charters before the summer crowds arrive in the Mediterranean, 1-800 Yacht Charters has announced deep discounts in the weekly charter rate for Super yacht ULYSSES, now (April) through May, 2016 in Italy, #Monaco, and the South of France.
The charter rate has been slashed from €255,000 per week down to €200,000 per week – a savings of 22%.
The black hull and cool beige superstructure of 183 foot Benetti superyacht is striking. Her size imposes, but she is inviting in layout and amenities. Indeed, her exterior is modern and unique in design. Her Stefano Natucci interior is majestic. The yacht features classical decorations. For instance, marble artworks, chandeliers, and rare pictures. Her decor melds Renaissance and Baroque. It also features a few subtle touches of Gothic Art.
Entering the saloon, you can admire an antique grand piano hand-crafted by Steinway & Sons over 100 years ago. Don’t worry if no one in your charter party knows how to play – the piano has been fitted with a digital controller, allowing it to play Tchaikovsky, Chopin, or even a more contemporary tune.
A maximum 12 guests are accommodated in 6 staterooms. The Master Suite is situated on the main deck and features an office, hairdressing salon, and en suite bathroom with adjacent steam room. Completing the massive suite is a private observation lounge, looking forward. A VIP Stateroom is located on the upper deck to starboard (right), and offers a panoramic view of the sea. Four guest staterooms are located on the lower deck and feature two twin cabins and two double cabins.
Guests can dine at one of three dining tables, each accommodating up to 12 guests. #Formal meals can be served at the dining table in the main salon, while casual affairs can be plated on the covered aft deck, or al fresco on the sun deck.
A Special Events discount is also available for a Cannes Film Festival yacht charter and/or a #MonacoGrandPrix yacht charter. For special events, Ulysses’ discounted rate is €255,000 per week, reduced from the regular event rate of €280,000 per week.

Recently, we told our readers that Hollywood icon Steven Spielberg had put his spectacular Monaco yacht charter vessel up for sale. The Spielberg yacht SEVEN SEAS is scheduled to be replaced with an even larger vessel.
In a, “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” kind of way, we thought this would be fun. We want to look at an interesting tie-in between Spielberg and the James Bond movie franchise. Obviously Spielberg loves yachts. James Bond movies correlate to fast, luxurious yachts. In fact, there are several yachts named in honor of Bond films and currently available for private yacht charter – yachts like OCTOPUSSY and CASINO ROYALE.
So, back to the tie-in between Spielberg and Bond.
Did you know that Steven Spielberg Was Twice Rejected to Direct a James Bond Film??!!!
Yep, it’s true.
Spielberg makes no secret of his affinity for the Bond film franchise. He desires to, and is a top choice, to direct a Bond movie.
It turns out that he had two opportunities to pitch longtime Bond producer Albert R. Broccoli. On both occasions, Broccoli said NO.
According to Broccoli’s daughter, Barbara (who took over the production reigns after her father’s death), a young, relatively unknown Spielberg made his first directorial pitch to her father early in his career. Broccoli was impressed by the young director’s passion, but felt he lack the experience to helm a major title like Bond.
Barbara said her father told Spielberg, “Kid, ya gotta get some more films under your belt.”
After Spielberg released one of his best-reviewed films, ‘Schindler’s List,’ he sent a letter to Broccoli asking again if he could direct a Bond movie. Barbara says her father once again turned down Spielberg, this time saying, “Now I can’t afford you!”
It’s safe to say things turned out ok for Mr. Spielberg. He’s directed over a dozen blockbuster films, and when not in use by Academy Award-winning director and his family, his yacht SEVEN SEAS is available for hire in the Mediterranean at a price of $1.2 million per week…
