This will make an enormous difference and allows you freedom and choice in some of the most spectacular locations.

On a crewed yacht charter tipping is customary and expected.
Your crew has worked long and hard to create your dream vacation, mostly with only couple of hours sleep.
If their service has been fantastic, a gratuity of 15 - 20% of the charter fee is very much appreciated.
If the crew has been exceptional and beyond, a higher discretionary figure may be warranted.
Hand a THANK YOU note to the captain and the tip is distributed equally among the crew.
