What are boarding and marina fees fund and how much is it?

15 March 2021

When organizing yacht travel, budget planning is always important. Some items of expenditure are difficult to predict, so they are placed in a separate group and combined under the name Boarding fees.

What is included in the boarding fees?

Food and drinks.

On the day of arrival, the crew, together with the captain, discusses the list of products, considering the wishes of the participants. All people are different, and we try to take into account all the specifics when drawing up the shopping list, so the cost of products can vary from 100 to 150 euros per person per week.

Mooring in marinas and yacht clubs. 

Based on many years of experience, we plan trips alternating between anchorage in marinas and wild anchorages in beautiful coves under the stars. The cost of marinas ranges from € 50 per yacht per night in the Canary Islands to € 600 per night in the high season in Ibiza. Dividing by the number of people in the crew and averaging we get the cost of parking in the Canary Islands - 30 € per person and 50€ in Ibiza and Formentera.


Depending on the presence of wind and the length of the route, the diesel consumption on the yacht can vary greatly. On average, 60 liters of fuel are consumed per week, which is about 120 €. Thus, the unit cost of fuel per person is 15 €.

Adding all the numbers, we get the average size of the ship's fund:

Canary Islands - 100-150 € per person per week

Ibiza and Formentera - 150-200 € per person per week
