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:

Monaco’s official language is French, so a few basic French phrases will be most helpful.

The people of Monaco also speak English and Italian, but they also speak Monegasque and Occitan (the southern French dialect) within their areas, although they are becoming more rare as the population changes.

English = hello
French =  bonjour

English = goodbye

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 = oui 

English = no
French = non
English = passport
French =  le passeport

Thank You For Your Generosity

Posted on

Today, September 15, 2016 is National Thank You Day.  It strikes us that something so ubiquitous creates the perfect opportunity to reach out to you, our clients and friends, and express our appreciation.

 

Fountain pen with writing of words, Thank you

Your continued patronage and confidence in our services is deeply appreciated.

We remind ourselves everyday how blessed we are to Deliver the Superyacht Experience to you and your families.

Over the years, we have witnessed how you are driven by sustainability and the greater social good.  We’ve come to learn that your chartered yacht serves as a platform to an eco-friendly adventure – a chance to reconnect with your family and friends, embrace diverse cultures, and rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit.

Most importantly, we are humbled by your kindness.  You have fully embraced our mission to build our business for generosity.  As we have made donations to charities around the world in your name, we  never expected so many of you to further participate and add, and in many cases match, our donations with additional donations of your own…

WOW!!!

You are the backbone of the 1-800 Yacht Charter community. Your support helps us flourish, and in return, we have been able to touch the lives of so many people and animals in need –  from helping school children’s charities in remote villages, to installing buoys to protect coral reefs and marine life.
