A home away from home
While on board a luxury yacht it is essential to remember that although the yacht is yours for the duration of the charter, it should be treated as though it were your home away home. Owners offer their luxury yachts for charter under the circumstances that they will be treated well. Keep in mind your behavior and your guests.
It is customary while on board a luxury yacht to abide by the “bare feet”rule. High heels can scratch and damage the teak decking whereas black soles can leave unsightly scuff marks. As a rule of thumb ensure to take appropriate deck shoes for walking around the deck or go bare foot, and if you wear outdoor shoes ashore, remember to remove them before stepping back onto the yacht.
Roaming on board
It is important to respect the privacy of the crew, although it is your charter the galley is considered a haven for the chef and the crew quarters are not to be entered without an invitation. When it come to the crew cabins, understand that this is their private space and avoid any intrusion.
Children are welcome aboard many yacht charters though it is important for guests to remain responsible for them. Some families bring along a nanny who can be accommodated on board though if not, crew members should not be expected to babysit.
On board most yachts, smoking is usually prohibited inside though some yachts may have deck spaces where smoking may be permitted. Smoking on board is entirely at the discretion of the yacht owner so should there be a smoker amongst your charter party, be sure to make this clear when making enquiries.
There is absolutely no tolerance for drug use on board a yacht charter. In the event that drugs are found on board, not only will they be confiscated but the yacht too is subject to confiscation while the Captain may lose his/her license. This also applied to weapons on board. If you break your half of the charter contract, be prepared to be abandoned mid-charter to make your own way.
Always remember that the charter crew are there to ensure your charter runs as smoothly as possible. They have a job to do, so sit back and enjoy being pampered.
