You are planning a Monaco Grand Prix yacht charter on one of the largest yachts in the world. You speak English, but you’d like to be polite to the people of the area.
Here are some tips:

Basic phrases to know:
English = hello
French = bonjour
English = goodbye
French = au revoir
English = please
French = s’il vous plat
English = Thank you
French = merci
English = you are welcome
French = de rien
English = excuse me
French = pardon
English = good morning
French = bonjour
English = good night
French = bonne nuit
English = Do you speak…?
French = Parlez-vous…?
English = anglais
French = francais
English = How are you ?
French = Comment allez-vous?
English = yes

French = la carte postale
ANYTIME. We are at your service.

Whether you’re planning a Bahamas bareboat charter, or a Monaco Grand Prix
yacht charter on a fully-crewed superyacht, as an American traveling abroad,
you’ll need a US passport.
Once a tedious process, new efforts by the U.S. State Department have been implemented to improve customer service and create a more accessible approach to passports.
The State Department’s Bureau of Consular Affairs now has nearly 8,000 acceptance offices, and promises a 4 to 6-week turnaround on all passports. The passport fee for a first-time adult applicant is $135. For an extra fee, express service can bring the wait down to 2-3 weeks, perfect for planning a last minute island escape.
Additionally, the Bureau has created a, “Passport Saturdays” program, when parents can register children under 16 on a day that is not a workday, since both parents must be present.
The State Department’s passport website offers a wide range of resources – from country by country guides, warnings, regulations and background information, to passport forms that can be downloaded.
The Bureau has also introduced a Smartphone enrollment notification system created for travelers headed for hot spots or people caught in countries experiencing emergencies or natural disasters. The system can track those who are enrolled and try to reach them in countries undergoing a developing crisis.
Recently, the system proved useful for US citizens in Libya during the current political uprising. The Bureau created a system of tweets to feed trapped US citizens information about the best ways to flee the dangers, such as the schedules and locations of ferries to take them out of the country.
In another instance, the Bureau was able to locate an airplane run by a Canadian company to lift several citizens to safety. In those situations, costs go to the passengers assisted but never exceed the cost of what a full fare commercial ticket would be to manage the same action, no matter how few passengers are carried by that charter.
A 24-hour State Department number – answered by a human – is available for emergencies and questions: 202-647-1512. The State Department’s passport website is: http://travel.state.gov/passport/get/first/first_830.html
If you are planning a yachting vacation and are not a US citizen, contact the 1-800 Yacht Charters destination experts at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/ to determine any special entry Visa requirements. We’ll be happy to assist you.

The biggest race on the F1 circuit is just six weeks away, but there is still time to score a yacht and a berth in the heart of the action.
Rivaling the Super Bowl as a top-tier corporate hospitality venue, dockage at the Monaco Grand Prix is now at a premium, but there is still a great selection of Mediterranean yacht charter vessels available for this ultimate racing experience.
Baglietto yacht APACHE II holds a confirmed berth on the T-Jetty, with excellent views of the course and JumboTron giant video screen.
Sleek and sophisticated, 44 meter motor yacht APACHE II boasts a contemporary interior that comfortably accommodates up to 12 guests in five well-appointed cabins. Her roomy sun deck offers 360 degree panoramic views – and the best seat in the house. While at dockside, the crew is happy to welcome up to 40 guests onboard for formal dining, and up to 100 guests for cocktails. Race event rate: €155,000 for 6 days, including berth (fuel, food and drinks extra).
The spacious Proteksan Turquoise super yacht COSTA MAGNA is also available, with dockage on the prestigious Quai des Etats Unis. The 44.5 meter yacht can entertain up to 70 guests for race viewing and 130 guests for cocktail parties. Sleeping accommodations are available for 10 guests in five spacious cabins.
Motor yacht COSTA MAGNA is available for a minimum rental of five days at the rate of €13,700 per day, plus berth (fuel, food and drinks extra).
Taking place since 1929, the Monaco F1 GP is widely considered to be one of the most significant and famous automobile races in the world. The race is held on a narrow course laid out in the streets of Monaco, with several elevation changes, tight corners and a tunnel, making it one of the most challenging tracks on the Formula One circuit. Although average speeds are quite low, the city street circuit remains a dangerous place to race.

The brand new 2016 Sunseeker 155 model named motor yacht PRINCESS AVK has been launched and her experienced charter-friendly crew and owner are keen to secure a South of France yacht charter right out of the gate.
Having great success with the owner’s first charter yacht, the 40 meter Sunseeker yacht Princess K, the team at 1-800 Yacht Charters could barely contain their excitement, awaiting the launch of this newest “Princess.”
“Last summer, as the conclusion of a super-successful charter onboard Princess K, Captain Julian Sincock informed us that his boss was quietly building a brand new and larger Sunseeker, and was eager for us to promote her for charter upon her launch,” reports Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters. “We immediately spread the word to our preferred clients and set up an online brochure.”
This Sunseeker 155 is the largest model built to date by the British shipbuilder. “Mega yacht PRINCESS AVK is prepared to take her place next to her sister-ship, the Sunseeker yacht BLUSH as the two highest profile tri-deck charter yachts in the 45 to 50 meter size category,” says Sheeder. “Their contemporary styling is rivaled by no other builder, with the possible exception of the Dutch-built Heesen yachts.”
In the water for less than a month, the yacht has already secured bookings for 17-24 July (Cannes – Ibiza) and 01-21 August (Ibiza – Cannes). Yes, you read that correctly – she CAN legally go to Spain for Balearic islands yacht charter – the yacht is fully-licensed for Spanish waters – and will be one of the largest yachts legally available for charter in Spain this summer.
Captain Sincock, however, is itching to get started sooner, and the yacht and his team are ready and in position in the South of France to accept a Monaco Historic Grand Prix charter or a Cannes Film Festival charter in May.
At 47.24 meters (154 feet 11 inches), the yacht offers accommodations for 12 guests in 6 cabins including an ample full beam master, two VIP double staterooms and three additional cabins that easily convert from twins to doubles offering greater flexibility during charter. The master and VIP cabins boast floor to ceiling windows, giving a new meaning to a “room with a view.”
The unmatched connection with the sea is evident with balconies unfurling from either side of the main deck saloon, and French doors in the skylounge open onto a fold-down terrace. The result is a soothing beach house vibe, where the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces are beautifully blurred.
The yacht is the ideal platform for a corporate event – like hosting a film festival party or watching the race cars scream by during the Grand Prix. The main aft deck features a relaxed seating area with coffee tables – perfect for relaxing at cocktail hour. A glamorous bar and dining area are tucked under the radar arch of the open-air sun deck, and a spa tub is forward, allowing for unparalleled views while moored stern-to along the quay in Cannes or Monaco.
Come enjoy the superyacht experience on what Sheeder calls, “The hottest superyacht on the Med charter market this summer!”
Rates from €225,000 per week. For further information, contact the charter team at 1-800 Yacht Charters right away. HURRY! Her calendar will book up completely!

“Don’t leave home without them.” That was the warning that actor Karl Malden shared with TV viewers in the 70’s in a series of ads for traveler’s checks. At the time, these checks were the safest way to carry money while traveling.
“After last season, we noticed many retail outlets in Europe have ceased to accept traveler’s checks, ” states Jana Sheeder, President of SailAway Yacht Charters. “Travelers who have relied on these checks for years are finding themselves in a cash-flow limbo.”
For years, travelers turned to traveler’s checks as a way to carry something close to cash safely. For a small fee, companies such as American Express promised quick replacement if the checks were lost or stolen.
“The few places that still accept them are charging large commissions to change them. Compounding the problem are the exchange rates, often 10% less than the rate you can get through an ATM machine.”
Brian Kelly, an expert who blogs about awards points while traveling, concurs. In a related interview, Kelly said, “People should get a credit card that works for them. Many credit cards offer fraud protection, awards points and some even provide rental car insurance at no additional cost.”
• Check on the exchange rate fees. While many banks will not charge an ATM fee, there are sometimes large exchange rates for using an ATM overseas. For this reason, use the ATM as little as possible, and consider a prepaid travel card. (You can purchase prepaid travel cards through banks and credit card companies. They are safe and secure.) If you do use an ATM, use the one at the bank, rather than the independent ones on street corners.
• If you plan on leaving a gratuity for your luxury mega yacht charter crew, consider a bank wire transfer. Make arrangements with your charter broker to wire the tip to the captain at the conclusion of the charter. “Most crews are not in a position to accept credit or debit cards,” says Sheeder. “In today’s world, it doesn’t make sense to carry large sums of cash for the purpose of leaving a tip. Wire transfers are simple, fast and safe.“
