Depending on your destination and dates, port charges and berthing will be more or less expensive. In high season, depending on the width of the boats, popular spots such as St Tropez, Monaco, Capri and Sardinia have expensive berthing rates. They can range from several hundred to several thousand dollars a night. During the International Film Festival, docking in Cannes will cost more than in winter.
In addition to being fun, renting a yacht is a unique way to create memories while spending time with friends and family. It represents 60-80% of the final price and refers to the cost of the yacht itself, its insurance, all its equipment and toys, the salary of the crew and the services for the entire duration of the charter. Renting a sailboat can cost 10% less than renting a motor yacht because the fuel consumption is lower. Renting a yacht that appears in a James Bond movie, such as the luxury yacht Regina, will not cost the same as a regular model.
Think of it as the same concept as renting a limousine to go to a concert, booking a private room at the most popular club in town, or renting a beachfront cabin for a week. On the other hand, in regions that offer a large fleet of crewed yacht charter such as the Mediterranean, luxury yacht charter costs are more attractive due to increased competition. The cost of the charter will also vary if you want to rent a crewed yacht or an unmanned boat. If you want to rent a larger yacht, such as a 100 foot yacht, then, for safety reasons, you should choose a crewed or skippered yacht.
An example of this yacht is the Tiger Lilly, a 50-foot motor yacht that you can rent from 4 to 8 hours. In addition, the cost of renting a yacht will depend on whether you rent a bareboat yacht or a crewed yacht. If you are planning to give a very special cruise gift to a larger group of people, say 10 to 15 years old, the best option is to rent a large yacht.
