cost of a week-long superyacht charter Capri

Capri, the rocky island off the coast of Italy, is a yachting hotspot with plenty of bijou beaches, quiet coves and sites of natural beauty to explore. In addition, the main town is awash with designer fashion emporiums and upscale restaurants where it’s not uncommon to spot celebrities. For charter guests seeking some light activity, the island is also a great place to hike in nature or take in ancient Roman villas and ruins.

The average weekly cost of a fully crewed charter is around $150,000 for a yacht up to 250 ft in length. But this is a base cost and does not include expenses such as docking fees (which can add up to several thousand dollars per night in popular destinations), insurance, customs and port charges and fuel for the yacht. Most superyacht charter Capri will itemize these costs in an Advance Provisioning Allowance, or APA, which is paid at the beginning of your charter and can vary from 30-50% of the yacht’s base charter rate.

Aside from the boat, the most significant cost factor is the number of crew members onboard. Smaller crews tend to charge less, but their service isn’t always as seamless. For example, if there are only two stews onboard, one will typically be on break and the other will have to do double duty – serving breakfast, cleaning cabins, etc. In general, the more crew members onboard, the better the service and overall experience of your charter will be.

In addition to the base cost of the yacht, you should also plan for food and beverages, crew gratuity and other incidentals. While gratuity is not required, 15-20% of the base charter rate is a good amount to budget for.

Another factor that impacts the cost of a superyacht is the destination and season. The Caribbean in winter and the Mediterranean during summer are peak charter periods with higher prices. During shoulder seasons or off-season, you can expect lower rates and fewer crowds on the water.

Discounts are commonplace in the charter a boat industry, especially if you’re willing to charter out of high season. You can also find deals at the last minute, or if there are other unchartered boats available that were previously booked by someone else who had to cancel their trip.

Lastly, you should consider the cost of any additional toys and amenities you want onboard. These can add a lot to the total cost, but can be worth the investment for many charterers. For example, a fully equipped yacht might have a 650 Rib Eye custom RIB tender for skiing and towing; two Seabob F5S, a Yamaha Cruiser jetski, an inflatable kayak, Island Hopper water trampoline; and a Segway and scooter for exploring on land.

The best way to ensure you get the perfect yacht for your vacation is to plan early and communicate clearly with Epic’s Charter Experts. Once you’ve selected a yacht, we can help you with all the details, from the initial inquiry to finalizing the charter contract and travel arrangements. We recommend planning six months to a year in advance, but if you are booking a popular destination during a busy period, like the Caribbean in winter or the Mediterranean during the summer, it’s best to book as far in advance as possible.
