Step 1

Pick your yacht. You can view the whole fleet here or you can use our Boat Search Engine to help find the perfect yacht for your group. If you need any assistance our reservations team will be happy to help you find something that fits your needs! 

Step 2

Check availability. Be sure that your selected yacht has open availability for your intended charter dates. Please keep in mind that our base closes at noon on Sundays and only charters that arrive late on Saturday will be started. Sunday sleepaboards are allowed which will give you a head start Monday morning! Learn more about sleepaboards here.

Step 3

Contact our reservations team to place a complimentary hold on your intended yacht and dates. This will allow you time to submit paperwork, sign contracts, pay deposits, and make travel arrangements.  They can be contacted at or +1 800 944 2962

Reservation Completed!

Congratulations! Your yacht is reserved. Continue down this list to learn what needs to be done before you arrive.

60 - 45 Days Before Your Charter

  • Log in to MyCYOA to complete various forms such as your Vessel Manifest and Provisioning Form
  • Buy a Cruising Guide and begin to plan your route
  • Final payment is due 45 days before your charter starts.
  • If desired, purchase trip cancellation insurance

30 Days Before Your Charter

  • Have a planning party with your crew to discuss meals, provisioning, and your itinerary.
  • Remind everyone in your party to pack light and pack soft-sided luggage only – like duffel bags—that can be easily stored on board.
  • Log in to MyCYOA to confirm you have submitted all required forms. This would be a great time to add SCUBA gear or water sports equipment to your charter!
