A luxury yacht charter is made special in many ways, from the finest bed linens to first-class service, none of which would be possible without a professionally trained onboard crew. Crew members are there to ensure each and every detail of your luxury yacht charter is a dream come true.
The charter crew are industry professionals who have been personally chosen by the owner of the yacht. When planning a yacht charter it is important to ensure the personalities of the crew suit the characters of your charter party as more often than not, it is the crew that makes the charter. A yacht broker can assist you when choosing a yacht with a crew who can accommodate your requirements. Each crew member works hard to ensure a guest’s expectations are not only met but surpassed and in turn, should be treated with the utmost respect.
The size of a yacht crew is very much dependent on the size of the yacht. Typically, for a mid-size yacht charter, guests can expect between 2 to 4 crew members, making for an impeccable level of one-to-one service.
"You will be impressed" explains Catherine Ambrogi, Head of Charter and Director, Yachting Partners International Limited, "as soon as you're on board you are considered the owner of the yacht by the crew. Whatever you want to do, wherever you want to go, it's your yacht. Whatever the size, or the price, or the value of the yacht, the crew will be there for you and your guests twenty-four hours a day, only for you."
It is important to consider the type of activities you would like to do during your charter. Food lovers may prefer an award-winning Chef whereas guests looking for ultimate relaxation may lean more towards a crew with an onboard masseuse. It is the job of your expert broker to ensure your yacht charter is equipped with a diverse crew who have a good reputation in order to suit your chosen charter experience.
