Charter fee – it’s the cost for chartering the yacht. This cost depends on the size of the yacht, it’s age, and the duration of the charter and also the season.
In high season, charters are mostly weekly or more but, in our company, you can find daily, three days, 10 days charters depending on availability.

Fuel(diesel) – when you charter a yacht you will get it with a full fuel tank, so that means you will have to return it the same way, or to pay the price for the fuel that you spent.

Generally, the fuel cost is from 50-300€ depending on the route and the use of engine and double that if you’re on a catamaran (since they have two engines).
