What’s Not Included in the Charter Rate

While the charter rate for the Gulet Eleganza offers a comprehensive range of inclusions, there are certain additional expenses to factor into your budget:

  • Airport Transfers: Your arrival and departure from Croatia are not included in the charter rate. You’ll be responsible for arranging your own transportation between the airport and the embarkation/disembarkation point of the Gulet Eleganza. Gulet Broker can assist you with recommendations for reliable taxi services or private car transfers.
  • Gratuities for the Crew: While gratuities are not mandatory, showing appreciation for the exceptional service provided by the crew is a common courtesy. The customary gratuity amount typically ranges between 5-15% of the charter rate, depending on the level of service you received. Gulet Broker can offer further guidance on appropriate tipping etiquette.
  • Fuel for the Tender for Watersports: The tender onboard the Gulet Eleganza is a fantastic amenity for exploring hidden coves or indulging in water sports activities. However, the fuel consumption for the tender during these excursions is not included in the base charter rate. The crew will meticulously track tender fuel usage and present you with a final bill upon disembarkation.

Optional Extras

While not mandatory, these additional options can elevate your Gulet Eleganza experience to new heights:

  • Food Options: The Gulet Eleganza offers a variety of food options to cater to your preferences and dietary needs. Here’s a breakdown of the available choices:
    • Half Board (Breakfast & Lunch): This option provides you with a delicious and wholesome breakfast each morning, followed by a multi-course lunch prepared by the onboard chef. The cost of the half-board option is typically priced per person, per week (e.g., €450/person/week).
    • Full Board (All Meals): Opting for the full-board package ensures all your meals are taken care of throughout your voyage. This includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner, meticulously prepared by the chef based on your preferences. The cost of the full-board option is typically priced per person, per week (e.g., €650/person/week).
    • Extra Meals (Dinner): If you choose the half-board option but desire the convenience of onboard dinners for a few evenings, you can add additional dinners at an extra cost per person per meal (e.g., €50/person/meal with a maximum of 2 dinners added per week).
    • Children’s Discounts: The Gulet Eleganza caters to families with children. Children aged 0-2 years can cruise free of charge, while children aged 2-10 years typically receive a 50% discount on the food options mentioned above.
  • Drink Options: Quench your thirst and enjoy refreshing beverages throughout your voyage with a variety of drink options available:
    • Drinks from Yacht’s Bar: The Gulet Eleganza features a well-stocked bar offering a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Consuming drinks from the bar will be billed based on the yacht’s price list.
    • All-Inclusive Drinks Package: For a hassle-free approach to enjoying drinks throughout your charter, consider the all-inclusive drinks package. This package typically includes a selection of Croatian wines, beers, spirits, soft drinks, natural and mineral water, juices, coffee, and tea for a set price per person, per week (e.g., €260/person/week).
    • All-Inclusive Non-Alcoholic Drinks Package: For those who prefer to abstain from alcohol, a dedicated all-inclusive non-alcoholic drinks package is available. This package typically includes domestic non-alcoholic drinks, water, carbonated drinks, juices, and hot beverages for a set price per person, per week (e.g., €150/person/week).
    • Corkage Fee: If you prefer to bring your own selection of alcoholic beverages onboard, a corkage fee will apply. This fee typically covers the service and glassware provided for your drinks and is usually a one-time charge for the entire charter (e.g., €850).

Port Taxes Explained

During your Croatian yachting adventure, you’ll likely visit various ports and harbors. These port calls are not included in the base charter rate and incur additional fees:

  • Breakdown of Costs: Port fees typically encompass a combination of charges, including mooring fees, harbor taxes, and tourist taxes. The specific costs vary depending on the port you visit, the size of the Gulet Eleganza, and the duration of your stay.
  • Payment Methods: Port taxes are typically settled in cash directly with the harbor master upon arrival at each port. Gulet Broker can advise you on the estimated costs for various ports you plan to visit during your itinerary planning discussions.
  • Cost Variations Depending on Itinerary: The overall cost of port taxes throughout your charter will depend on the specific ports you include in your itinerary. Generally, larger and more popular ports tend to have higher associated fees compared to smaller or lesser-known harbors. Gulet Broker can assist you in crafting an itinerary that balances your desired destinations with cost considerations.
  • Gulet Mooring vs. Anchoring: Impact on Costs: While most nights are typically spent anchored in secluded coves for a peaceful and serene experience, occasionally mooring in ports may be necessary. Mooring fees are generally higher compared to anchoring costs. However, mooring in ports offers certain advantages, such as easier access to shore for excursions, provisioning opportunities, and potentially refilling water and fuel supplies. The captain will strategically decide between mooring and anchoring throughout your voyage, considering factors like weather conditions, itinerary plans, and your preferences.
  • Refueling and Replenishing Needs: When Gulet Needs to Enter Port: While fuel for standard cruising is included in the base charter rate, situations might necessitate entering a port to top up fuel supplies. Similarly, depending on your water consumption and the availability of freshwater sources along your route, the Gulet Eleganza might need to enter a port to replenish freshwater supplies. Any additional fuel or water costs incurred during your charter will be added to your final bill.

The Booking Process and Payment Options

Now that you possess a comprehensive understanding of the inclusions and exclusions within the Gulet Eleganza charter rate, let’s delve into the booking process and explore the available payment options.

This agreement outlines the terms and conditions of your charter, including details regarding inclusions, exclusions, cancellation policies, and payment schedules. It’s essential to meticulously review and sign this agreement before finalizing your booking.
  • Delivery/Redelivery Fees Explained: In some instances, your chosen cruise route might necessitate the Gulet Eleganza to reposition itself to your embarkation point or from your disembarkation point to its home port. These repositioning journeys are referred to as delivery and redelivery, respectively. If your chosen itinerary requires such repositioning, additional delivery/redelivery fees may apply. Gulet Broker will clearly outline these costs during the initial quotation process and ensure they are reflected in your final booking confirmation.
