How much should I tip to the crew at the end of the charter?Category: Captain & Crew
Tipping the yacht crew after a successful charter is of course at your discretion but it is customary if you are satisfied with your charter experience. Your broker will be able to advise you about the established gratuity range and can even distribute the tip to the crew on your behalf if you prefer.
While it is at your discretion, it is customary to tip the Captain and crew at the conclusion of a charter for excellent care and service. As a guide, a gratuity of 7-10% of the base charter fee is considered fair, while exceptional service and attention to detail can warrant a tip of 15% or more, but always at your discretion.
When it comes to chartering a luxury yacht, your charter broker is your main point of contact throughout the experience.
