Frequently Asked Questions

Charter periods are always from Saturday afternoon until Saturday morning. However, you need to return the vessel on Friday in the afternoon.

More specifically, the boat should be back at the Porto Mirabello marina before Friday, 5 p.m. (5 o’clock in the afternoon).

Return the vessel but enjoy an overnight stay in the harbour

The overnight stay in Porto Mirabello is included and check-out is scheduled on Saturday at 9 a.m. (9 o’clock in the morning).

The boat is equipped with a dedicated skipper cabin, located in the bow of the vessel.

The skipper’s personal cabin is accessed from the outside and equipped with its own sanitary facilities.

When you decide to opt for the skippered yacht charter option, you will have to provide food for the skipper during the charter period.

Remark about the skipper

If you meet the requirements, you can also opt for the bareboat yacht charter option. In this case, you don’t pay for the added services of an experienced skipper on board during the charter period.

We politely ask you to take off your shoes before boarding the vessel.

This to keep the boat clean and to protect the materials such as the teak deck.

A parking spot near the boat is included in the charter price. Hence, you don’t need to worry about parking fines, theft, vandalism, etc.

Park the car, hop on the yacht and forget everything.
