Charter a Yacht for a One-Way Trip to Different Location

One of the most frequent questions yacht charter clients have is whether they can take a yacht for a one-way trip to a different location. The short answer is yes, but there are a few important points to keep in mind.

Generally speaking, luxury mega-yacht operators are very amenable to one way trips and will often offer a special price for a one-way charter between two bases that is comparable to the cost of a return. This is a great option for those looking to explore a specific region and not have to worry about re-chartering if they are unable to make it back on time.

The biggest drawback of a one-way trip is that you will likely have to disembark early at the end of your charter to allow the yacht to return to its home base on time. This isn’t the charter company trying to fleece you, but they need to ensure that the boat is available for the next group of holiday-makers. This can add a day or so to your charter and may mean that you have to visit some of the destinations on the return leg that you had planned for on the first leg.

You will also want to carefully plan your itinerary, allowing for enough time for the Captain and crew to prepare the yacht for you. This will include ensuring that you are provisioned with the food and drinks that you prefer to have, as well as making arrangements for any shore excursions or activities that you would like to undertake. It is also a good idea to consider how you will get to and from the marina where your charter yacht will be docked.
