$50,000, San Francisco
When you think of luxury yacht charters, what typically comes to mind is the quarter-million-dollar-a-week megayachts hosting the likes of Oprah, Angelina and other A-listers. Legions of crew, Cristal by the case and Beluga caviar by the gallon.
But there’s another side to crewed charters, less-flashy yachts that offer all the advantages of a private customised vacation and are perfect for getting away with your family or friends. We have come up with an eclectic collection of great yachts under $50,000 a week, from the Mediterranean to New England.
Before you whip out your AmEx Centurion card, keep in mind that’s plus-plus. The basic charter rate is plus fuel, plus food and beverages and plus a generous tip to the crew because they treated you like Oprah or Angelina. But those costs are controllable by how far and how fast you go, and whether you want lobster, gold-leaf sushi and Italian truffles at every meal. Like everything on a yacht charter, it’s your call.
New to Ocean Independence’s charter fleet 29.9 metre SunseekerEmrys offers value for money if you are looking to experience San Francisco and the surrounding area on a superyacht.

Another of Emrys' standout features is her top deck which has a retractable sun roof so guests can enjoy the space no matter the weather. With an experienced crew of four you can be assured you wont miss out on any of the luxuries associated with a luxury yacht charter .
