The interior of the Thumper yacht exudes opulence and pleasure. Five generous cabins welcome you, rivaling the grandeur of palatial rooms. The interior and living spaces of Thumper have been entrusted to the talented designers at HPM, resulting in a beach house style that combines light wood and handcrafted elements to create a chic atmosphere.
The exterior of the yacht has received equal attention to detail as the interior, offering multiple retreats for hours of relaxation and enjoyment. From the sun deck with its Jacuzzi and sunbathing areas to the aft deck, where a large table sets the stage for gourmet or informal dining prepared by Chef Ryan Plester, the experiences aboard Thumper are as diverse as they are delightful. The water toys available onboard cater to your quest for adrenaline or discovery, and your dinghy can transport you to renowned destinations like St. Tropez, Cannes, or the hidden coves of the French Riviera.

What is the ''APA''?
Additional expenses are covered through the Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA). Typically, the APA amounts to 25% to 30% of the total charter fee, depending on factors such as your itinerary, food, beverages, and more. Throughout your charter, the captain will maintain precise records of the expenses incurred. At the conclusion of the charter, you will either receive a refund for any remaining funds or be asked to cover any additional costs that were accrued during the cruise.
Is VAT applicable to the charter fee?
For the Greece, the Value Added Tax (VAT) is typically set at 24%. However, a temporary reduction was put in place in June 2020, lowering the rate to 13% under the category of "services of transport of people and their luggage". This lower rate is applicable to all yachts over 24 meters in length that are exclusively cruising within Greek waters. As part of Greece's 2023 Budget, this reduced VAT rate has been extended until 30 June 2023. However, VAT rates can differ depending on the embarkation location and chosen itinerary. We are here to provide you with the most up-to-date information regarding the tax regulations in any country you intend to visit.
Is it necessary to tip the captain and crew, and if yes, what is the customary amount?
Tipping is entirely optional, and if you choose to tip the crew for their professionalism, helpfulness, graciousness, and more, it is customary to offer 5% to 15% of the total charter amount on the last day before disembarking from the boat. In the Mediterranean, we typically recommend 5% to 10%, while in the Caribbean, 10% to 15% is customary. If there are multiple crew members, it is best to give the tip to the captain, who will distribute it among the crew, ensuring harmony among the team.
What happens after I submit a booking?
You'll receive an automated email immediately after booking; within 24 hours, you should receive a second email that confirms the booking's details. This gives us time to arrange for the crew for your cruise. The second email will contain information about instructions, parking, the captain's contact number, and other vital details. Please be sure you read it carefully.
What are the payment terms for a weekly charter?
To secure your booking, a 50% deposit of the total charter fee is required upon signing the Charter Agreement. The remaining 50%, along with an Advance Provisioning Allowance, applicable taxes, delivery/redelivery fees, and any agreed additional charges, must be paid via bank transfer one month prior to the charter start date.
Is it possible for me to specify the food and wine to be served on the yacht?
before boarding the yacht, we kindly request that you fill out a detailed questionnaire outlining the preferences and specific needs of all individuals in your party. This includes dietary or medical requirements, any allergies, and any specific sporting or entertainment requests. This information will allow us and the yacht's crew to make every effort in ensuring that your charter is a delightful and personalized experience.
