Is chartering a yacht expensive?


There are a number of factors that affect charter yacht pricing. However, on average, a week-long private yacht charter with skipper and 6-8 guests costs anywhere from $5,000 on luxurious sailing yachts and catamarans, and up to $150,000+ for superyachts.

When you look at the total cost of a private yacht charter, you will often find that it is significantly less expensive than a comparable land-based vacation. Compared to the cost of paying for a hotel plus traveling by car between destinations, it is actually very affordable. Plus you get to be on the water instead of in a rental car!
