The E.U. legislator has recently increased the pressure on yacht owners to collect Value Added Tax (IVA, TVA, VAT, etc. ) on their charters at rates which vary between 5% and 20% of the Charter Fee. Under UE Law the VAT is payable by the Charterer.
There are still some exemptions and our charter specialists will be able to guide you.
Type of charter agreement
The most widely accepted Charter Agreement is the one published by the MYBA association, 2009 version. If you wish to read the terms of this agreement prior to booking a charter with us, please contact one of our charter specialist by clicking here.
The standard payment terms are:
- 50% of the charter fee at the signature of the charter agreement

In general, no option is accepted by yacht owners, but should you be interested in holding a yacht for a short period of time, please contact us for the terms.

Clause 16 of the MYBA charter agreement
The MYBA charter agreement (2009 version currently used) is the charter agreement which is the most used by the charter Industry. Click here to read an extract of the agreement which defines the insurance covered by the yacht owner.
