Greece Yacht Charter Holidays Selections
While yachting may be considered a high priced holiday style, it can also be quite budget friendly. Take for instance the traditional gulets. These types of boats are great if you aren’t keen on paying for that extra fuel expense as it is included up to 4 hours in the charter rates. While motor yachts and sailing yachts are generally chartered with what is called an APA (Advanced Provisions Allowance). This is the amount paid on top of the charter rate to cover additional expenses such as food, beverages, fuel and other extras.
