South East Asia is a melting pot of cultures, cuisines, architecture and landscapes, making it one of the most exciting and enchanting charter destinations in the world. Its warm waters are peppered with glorious islands, many of which are only accessible by yacht, offering a perfectly private retreat with endless possibilities for scuba diving and watersports.
There are two kinds of charter: official, which is regulated by MYBA (Motor Yacht Brokers Association), and unofficial. Whereas unofficial charter may include a negotiable price and seem more beneficial to the client, official charter has certain advantages that outweigh the possibility of getting a large discount. Firstly, it concerns prices: while you cannot really expect a huge bargain in official charter, you can also be sure that you are not getting ripped off since the price ranges are regulated strictly, to ensure you are paying a reasonable market price. Secondly, MYBA certified charter companies envisage all possible risks and stipulate clearly the processes of solving problems if they occur.
