Additional Costs Seychelles
This is an estimation of how much you will be asked to chip in for the yachts kitty. Kitty is a shared cash-box from which all the running expenses are covered. All the money not used is split equally and returned to the crew at the end of the trip.
- Additional costs highly depend on the way you and your crew want to spend the trip. Thanks to our Selectan algorithm you will be on the boat with the most likeminded people.
- Marina fees and fuel costs depend on the wind and weather conditions. The more windy days we have, the less fuel we burn. Additionally the better the weather is, the less often we stay in the marinas and the more often we visit natural parks.
- You will share the groceries costs among the crew and eat breakfasts and lunches together. On average one can assume to eat 2-3 dinners in restaurants and 2-3 evenings for going out ( these are not included in the calculation below).
Additional costs cover:
- marina fees and diesel fuel for the yacht,
- national park entrance fees and water taxis,
- your part of the groceries shopping (food, soft drinks, alcohol, etc…).
~200 € pp/cruise
Additional costs estimation does not cover:
- meals in the restaurants,
- arrival to and from the marina.

WHEN TO PAY ADDITIONAL COSTS?
While chartering a yacht it is normal to put down a certain amount of money as a deposit for the yacht. The deposit covers any damage that is caused during the cruise and is a security for the chartering company. For each yacht in this cruise, every crew should put down 1500-3000 EUR of a deposit. Any damage, higher than the value of the deposit, is covered from the yacht`s insurance (reduced by the deposit value).
This is how it is normally done, but I thought it might be somewhat troublesome for you. So I came up with the Trustful Social Deposit…
The Trustful Social Deposit
- A small amount from your booking fee is taken for the Trustful Social Deposit.
- The same is done from everyone who joins any Naleia Yachting trip.
- The amount that builds up is used as a sort of insurance.
