|CHARTER YACHT ETIQUETTE|
|Your yacht and crew are delighted to welcome you onboard. They are responsible for your care and safety, as well as that of the superyacht you are chartering. As such, there are rules to ensure your charter runs both smoothly and safely.|
Shoes for ashore should not be worn onboard. Instinctively, you will kick them off and feel more relaxed barefoot or in soft deck shoes, but it also protects the decks, which are no simple thing to replace. If you usually travel with your pet, please ensure you have advised your charter broker so that they can find you a suitably pet-friendly yacht. Many owners do not permit pets onboard.
|Your superyacht is designed to be sleek and seaworthy, so they don’t always offer an abundance of storage space for large, hard cases. Where possible, pack in soft luggage bags or check in advance how many cases can be stowed.|
|Many guests look forward to trying high speed watersports with personal watercraft (e.g. waverunners and jetskis) but in many areas this is only permitted if you have an appropriate license and meet with local operating regulations. We can advise you on the yachts that are registered training centres, or on where to obtain the correct license before your charter. For yachts that don’t have scuba diving facilities, it is usually possible to arrange onshore with a local company.|
|While it’s tempting to pack in as many locations and activities as possible on your charter, to enjoy the yachting lifestyle and all your yacht has to offer, we suggest a maximum of 6 hours cruising per day.|
