The “terms” under which a yacht operates, and lays out what items are, or are not, included in the charter rate.

Western Mediterranean Terms ( WMT ) – often referred to as “MYBA terms” (Mediterranean Yacht Brokers Association). Under WMT ( OR MYBA) terms the charter fee includes charter of the yacht and equipment, crew wages and food, ship’s laundry, basic operating consumables, and insurance of the yacht for marine risk, third party claims, and the crew for employer’s liability insurance.
The charterer will be charged extra, and at cost to the yacht, for all other expenses. These expenses include food and all beverages for the charter guests, fuel for the yacht and auxiliary craft, dockage, VAT if applicable, taxes, harbor fees, communications, guest laundry and shore-side electricity and water.

Most Superyachts and larger luxury crewed charter yachts operate under MYBA terms at all times and in any region. Yachts of all sizes chartering outside of the Caribbean, especially in the Mediterranean, will usually operate on a MYBA terms basis.

Caribbean Terms Inclusive ( CTI ) – For yachts operating under CTI, sometimes referred to as SCT (Standard Caribbean Terms), the charter fee includes all items on the MYBA terms plus three meals per day and fuel for four hours’ cruising daily averaged over the charter. Some yachts operating under Caribbean Terms include all beverages except vintage wines and champagnes.

With the exception of most Superyachts and larger crewed charter yachts, most crewed charter yachts in the Caribbean operate under CTI.

Eastern Mediterranean Terms ( EMT ) – The charter fee includes charter of the yacht and equipment, crew wages and food, ship’s laundry, basic operating consumables, fuel for four hours’ cruising daily averaged over the charter, breakfast and lunch, and insurance of the yacht for marine risk, third party claims, and the crew for employer’s liability insurance.

The charterer will be charged extra, and at cost to the yacht, for all other expenses. These expenses include dinners if taken aboard and all beverages for the charter guests, fuel for the yacht and auxiliary craft, dockage, VAT if applicable, taxes, harbor fees, communications, guest laundry and shore-side electricity and water.

Greek Terms ( GT ) – The charter fee includes charter of the yacht and equipment, crew wages and food, ship’s laundry, basic operating consumables, water, harbor dues within Greek waters, and insurance of the yacht for marine risk, third party claims, and the crew for employer’s liability insurance. The charterer will be charged extra, and at cost to the yacht, for all other expenses. These expenses include food and all beverages for the charter guests, fuel for the yacht and auxiliary craft, dockage, VAT if applicable, taxes, communications, guest laundry and shore-side electricity.
You need no qualifications for a sailing holiday aboard a Skippered yacht rental, though even for an experienced sailor, a Skippered Yacht can be a relaxing and interesting way of exploring new cruising grounds. The skippers are more than happy to act as your personal guide, when afloat, and show you many secluded bays and anchorage’s often unknown to most tourists. He will listen to your wishes regarding where you want to visit, and do his best to accomodate these, subject to weather conditions. You will enjoy learning to sail the boat yourself, even if inexperienced, with the reassurance of a professional at hand.
For the Ladies! – we have a few lady skippers too, they are very popular, so book early.

Good reasons to book a charter with a Skipper are:

You don’t have the required skippers qualifications, you’re unsure of your sailing skills, or your handling of the particular boat you need to charter (the boat needs to be bigger than you are used to).
Your sailing skills are fine, but the rest of your sailing party are inexperienced so you cannot count on any help whatsoever.
You want to go sailing in a new area, and you would feel more comfortable taking your first charter there with a knowledgeable skipper, who, incidentally, would also act a tourist guide and an interpreter. This is particularly true in the Mediterranean & Adriatic where there are many historical or archeological sites to discover.
You came to the conclusion that, once you add all the extras for a nice resort, in a breathtaking location, and if you share the boat cost with 1 or 2 other couples, a skippered yacht charter is less expensive than a stay at a good resort, but much more fun.
