New to charter?

The Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA) is due at the time of the final charter payment. Under MYBA terms, this sum is usually equivalent to 30 per cent of the total charter fee, but may be up to 40 per cent in some cases.

Intended to cover the operating expenses of a charter as explained under Charter Terms, such as fuel, food, drinks, port fees and ad hoc incidentals, the APA will be given to the captain before the start of your charter. The Captain will ensure that the yacht is fully fuelled and provisioned when you step on board. While an up-to-date summary of accounts can be requested at any time during your charter, a full set of accounts will normally be submitted by your captain at the end of the cruise. If, during the charter, the expenditure exceeds the sum already paid, additional cash funds will be required at once.

All outstanding bills from the yacht charter should be settled in cash or by bank transfer before your final disembarkation. Of course, any remaining credit at the end of your charter will be reimbursed to you in full. On request, transfer arrangements to and from the yacht can be made by Burgess or by the yacht’s captain, payment for which will be deducted from your APA.

Isle of Skye Scotland

SCOTLAND AND HEBRIDES

Scotland’s west coast has as big a reputation for its wide variety of weather and strong tides as it does for its breath-taking beauty. with such stark contrasts in the weather and sailing conditions all part of the charm, it is easy to be put off..

But this stunning area of the UK offers some of the finest sailing in the world. Protected cruising grounds are set at the heart of some of the most spectacular scenery, and while careful planning is essential, help and advice is plentiful with numerous guides and suggested itineraries available for charters to make the most of your time there.

Tarbert Outer Hebrides Scotland

Islay and Gigha

Islay is a must-visit destination - if not for its beauty, then at least for the many fine whisky distilleries that have been producing scotch for hundreds of years. even though it is only 25 miles long, nine active distilleries are producing some of the finest single malts known to mankind..

There are plenty of opportunities to visit the distilleries (where you will receive a warm welcome) and a variety of tours are available. The main harbour is Port Ellen, which makes the perfect base to explore this famous island and there are several anchorages along Islay’s south coast.

Gigha is a tiny yet super-hospitable island of Gigha. This beautiful place is surrounded by turquoise seas and fringed with white sand beaches. Since 2002, it has been owned by the community, which explains the warm welcome. Gigha is only 7 miles long and a mile and a half wide, yet it boasts its very own Michelin recommended Boathouse Restauran t. There are great walks with stunning views and awesome sunsets, not to mention a challenging nine-hole course for the keen golfer. You will find the most popular anchorage in Ardminish Bay.

Cruising the inner hebrides, the inner hebrides offer stunning landscapes, lochs, beach anchorages, wildlife, walks, and mountain climbing. and then there’s world-beating food, especially the local seafood and fish, and, of course, fine whisky to enjoy after all that exercise..

The Scottish Hebrides were made for exploring by sailboat. Offering a rare chance to explore some of Britain’s most inaccessible wilderness alongside rugged mountains and glittering lochs, the magic of this area won’t be lost on you as you cruise through stunning gold-sand beaches, craggy inlets and picturesque seaside towns. Friendly locals will help to make it the trip of a lifetime.

There is much-undisturbed wildlife, set against an enticingly rugged and tranquil backdrop. While sailing here you may spot dolphins, seals, whales and basking sharks. Bird watchers will also delight in puffins, oystercatchers, fulmars and shags all native to this area. The Inner western coast offers fjord-like lochs to glide through. The Outer Hebrides is virtually untouched – even at the height of summer, the seas are still blissfully quiet.

The best time for sailing charters in Scotland

The best time for a sailing charter in Scotland is during the summer months of July and August when the weather will be at its warmest with temperatures up to 18oC. April and May have the lowest rainfall, while June, July and August can be unpredictable.

Superyacht Charter Mull

Take to the Skies

Join your superyacht at Oban, the gateway town of the Hebrides. Head northwest towards Mull to visit the 13th century castle and learn about its troubled past with a local historian. Go north through the stunning sound of Mull, keeping an eye out for dolphins, orca and seals. Disembark at Tobermory, home to the island’s only whisky distillery. Meet the head distiller for a private tour and tastings of this small yet powerful single malt. Take to the skies for para-jet flights in search of whales, orca and sea eagles.

Sacred Island

Head round the northern tip of Mull and towards tiny Staffa, an entirely volcanic Island uninhabited since the 17th century. Stop your motor or sailing boat and explore Fingals Cave, a sea cave formed completely in hexagonally jointed basalt. Take the walkway to explore it yourself, or meet the island’s only residents, puffins. Next, Iona, the centre of Gaelic monasticism for four centuries.

Corporate Sailing

I just wanted to write a quick note to formally thank Geronimo for our recent Executive Away Day.  All your staff were superb throughout our business agenda and sailing event.

No matter what I asked for, one of your team was always on hand to assist me instantly...and with no objections - quite a rarity!  The feedback from all has been tremendous.

On behalf of our Mentholatum Company thank you so much for the sail which proved a trully memorable occassion for all concerned, sailors and landlubbers alike.

The professionalisim and hospitality were second to none and epitomised your own friendly style.

Just a quick note to thank you so very much for arranging our catamaran in Marbella for our team build weekend.

I am sure you are aware that it is incredibly difficult trying to keep everyone happy, but everyone agreed what a fantastic time we had on the boat you provided.  Thank you so so much.

I find it hard to remember a day I have enjoyed more than the one you provided on Wednesday.  Everything about our sail with you was spot on and I want you to know how much we enjoyed it.

Just a short note to thank you and your team for such a quality service managing to provide 10 landlubbers with one of the most enjoyable and interesting days.

The memorys we share made on the day are priceless and your hospitality is second to none.

Just a short note to thank you for making our "Team Building Day" such a success. Feedback from Ted, Manus and Rob has been really good.  To Infinity was amazind and imressed us hugely.

Thanks for an amazing day everyone really enjoyed it.  Erika especially enjoyed being alowed to drive the boat. I thinks she has found a new hobby.  See you again soon.

I just wanted to thank you for the amazing day you orgnised for my guests and I, from the start at breakfast in Ardrossan to unintentionally racing the Arran ferry on the way home the whole day was amazing.

Friday at work din not seem to be the same, see you again soon.

I've used Geronimo Sailing for both corporate and also for family days out.  Craig is a fantastic host for both.  The boat (To Infinity), is more than comfortable no mater what the weather is like and we felt safe at all times.

On the corportae events, Craig has just the right mis of getting people involved against relaxing for the day.

Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) Ayrshire team had a team building day with Geronimo Sailing.

We had a fantastic sailing experience, the team building activities Craig provided throught the day really brought us together as a team but ultimayely made sufre we had a day to remember.

Scotland Yacht Charter

Scotland yacht charter is at present underrated. While quite popular for many yacht charterers, particularly the experienced sailor, yacht charters in this beautiful country are sure to increase steadily in the next few years. The simple reason for this is that a yacht charter is Scotland, is a breathtaking and exhilarating experience.

The dramatic scenery, gorgeous anchorages, islands with castles, lochs and Celtic Fairy tales will keep you intrigued through your yacht charter vacation. The mystical history of Scotland is just about as exciting as the sailing in Firth of Clyde.

In the Hebrides you will find towering Highland mountain scenes and pristine villages around protected harbors. The cruising in this area can be challenging due to large tides, currents and occasional Atlantic Ocean storms. It is, however, possible to find inside passages to most of the more interesting areas.

Oban offers a popular yacht charter base. From there you can easily reach the Isle of Skye, Mull, Eigg and Rhum. Scotch whiskey lovers will have heard these names before. There are numerous good anchorages, on most of the Islands, otherwise Portee is a great harbor on the Isle of Skye.

If you'd prefer safe and stress-free cruising, head toward The Clyde Estuary where you'll find picturesque ports and typical warm, west Coast hospitality. On your yacht charter, you'll encounter abundant wildlife on Scotland's West Coast. In the Kilbrannan Sound between Arran and Kintyre, you can often spot basking sharks. If you are fortunate, you'll also see whales, Porpoises and dolphins, not to mention the massive variety of seabirds. Ailsa Craig is home to the country's largest colony of gannet.

The Caledonian Canal cuts through the heart of Scotland via a chain of locks and is a great area to charter a power boat. These locks include the famous Lock Ness, and the fabled Nessie, and rugged scenery of old castles and sweeping mountains sprinkled with purple heather.

The selection of activities in Scotland is as extensive onshore as afloat aboard your charter boat. Towns brimming with boutiques and shopping, you will not find. Scotland's charm is in its picturesque rolling landscape and centuries of history. Take a scenic walk through the hills or enjoy a round of golf, in one of the many public village courses.

The main yacht charter season in Scotland runs from April to October, when the country is not frozen solid. The most settled weather is usually in May and June. The types of yacht charter available in Scotland include motor, sailing, bareboat charter, skippered, crewed yachts, catamaran, power boat, sailboat, and even the occasional luxury yacht charter.

A yacht charter in Scotland will be a rewarding experience. Trace your Ancestors back to their roots or enjoy the fascinating charm of a land that's seen so much.

Charters Scotland

The rugged beauty of Scotland is of World renown. A yacht charter in Scotland is one of the best ways of exploring the country. The West Coast is sparsely inhabited and many places are only accessible by sea. For this reason, a bareboat yacht charter is an increasingly popular way of visiting the area. The scenery is spectacular and the wildlife unusual and diverse. There are lots of harbours and anchorages. We would challenge anyone who charters Scotland not to be impressed.

Charter West Scotland

One of the great things about Scottish charters is the unrivalled opportunity for peace and solitude. As anyone who has experienced the delights of a Yacht charter West Coast Scotland will testify, there are none of the crowds that are the norm in other popular areas of yacht charter UK. A cruise with Scottish Yacht Charter allows you the freedom to enjoy deserted anchorages should you wish to. The numerous islands to be found in this area mean that there is usually somewhere offering shelter whatever the direction of the wind. However one of the great things about Scottish charters is that, if you wish, there are plenty of charming coastal towns and villages offering opportunities for reprovisioning, visiting local attractions or just a welcoming pub.

Bavaria Yacht Charter

We are ideally placed to offer the perfect location for your yacht charter west coast. Our small fleet of yachts is perfect for Scottish charters, being relatively new and fully equipped. Colour plotters, electric anchor windlasses and single line reefing will all enhance the experience of your Scottish Yacht Charter. As anyone familiar with this area will testify, the diesel heating found on all our boats can be very useful on occasions. For your visit ashore, our yachts are equipped with inflatable tenders and outboard motors at no extra charge. All of these features will help to make your sailing charter Scotland a memorable one.

A widely held misconception is that it always rains in Scotland. Aficionados of cruising the West Coast of Scotland will testify to the long periods of settled weather it is often possible to encounter. Of all the yacht charter UK areas Scottish charters are the ones blessed with the longest daylight hours. In midsummer a lucky sailor who charters Scotland will find that even at midnight it is often not entirely dark. Certainly the weather will usually allow barefoot yacht charters, if that is your fancy. As a result of the effects of the Gulf Stream, temperatures are a good deal higher than is generally appreciated.

Bareboat Charter Scotland

One of the considerations when selecting Scottish charters is the ease of access to our home ports. Craobh Haven and Largs marinas are easily accessible by road, train or even air. Our summer base at Craobh Haven is about 2 hours drive from Glasgow or Edinburgh and is approximately 20 miles from Oban, which is the nearest rail link. Largs Marina, our winter base is about 20 miles from Glasgow which in addition to road and rail links has its own airport.

Anyone who is a client of ours and who charters Scotland regularly will appreciate the ease of access our sites offer for your sailing charter Scotland.

Luxury £288m superyacht belonging Shahid Khan docks in Scotland

  • The vessel, Kismet, requires staff of up to 40 to cater for dozen guests on board
  • Megayacht is also available for charter, with prices starting at £2.4m per week 

It would not look out of place at the billionaires’ playgrounds of Monaco and Dubai .

So locals in the Scottish town of Troon were stunned to see the £288 million Kismet megayacht pull into harbour at the weekend.

The 400-foot charter yacht includes a helipad, a beauty salon, a spa, a sauna and a swimming pool, as well as indoor and outdoor cinemas, a dance floor and a gym.

It has accommodation for 12 guests across nine cabins, and is so large that it contains an elevator.

The luxurious interior styling is by British designer Reymond Langton Design.

Kismet arrived in Troon on Saturday on its maiden voyage after being constructed at German shipyard Lurssen.

Who is Shahid Khan? From washing dishes for 85p an hour to splashing out on a £140m superyacht... meet 'the Tache with the Cash' primed to take over ownership of £800m Wembley 

The vessel commands a staff of up to 40 workers, and belongs to Shahid Khan, the Pakistani-American billionaire businessman and owner of Premier League side Fulham.

Mr Khan is also principal owner of American football team Jacksonville Jaguars.

Kismet was spotted by keen kayaker Mark McInnes.

He said: ‘I’m from Troon, a short walk along the road to the beach to launch the kayaks.

‘Myself and my girlfriend Dawn decided to paddle out to the harbour on Saturday morning to get a closer look at the yacht.

‘Not every day these are in Troon and it was such a lovely sunny calm morning on the water.

‘It was amazing to see it up close, so new and clean. There was even a man abseiling off the side of it to clean the windows.

‘We would have loved to get an invite on board but that didn’t happen, so we will just have to imagine what it looks like inside.’

Passengers are able to arrive by helicopter and can enjoy a dancefloor, beauty salon, spa, elevator, underwater lights, beach club and gym.

The opulent yacht is also available for charter, with prices starting at £2.4 million per week, plus expenses.

Mr Khan is well known in celebrity circles and is understood to have entertained the likes of Beyonce and Jay-Z on his yachts in the past.

His rags to riches story has seen him go from earning just 85p an hour washing dishes to making a £900million bid for Wembley stadium in 2018.

The 73-year-old businessman, who moved to the US when he was 16 with just 500 US Dollars (£360) to his name, became owner of west London side Fulham in 2013.

The married father-of-two bought the club from Mohamed Al Fayed for a fee believed to be between £150m and £200m and at the time he said: 'Fulham is the perfect club at the perfect time for me.

'I want to be clear, I do not view myself so much as the owner of Fulham, but a custodian of the club on behalf of its fans.’

He was born in Lahore, Pakistan to his mother, Zakia, a maths professor, and father, Rafiq, who sold surveying equipment.

Encouraged by his father, who stood for humility and frugality, Khan from an early age developed a nous for business.

He is said to have charged his school friends to borrow his comic books as a youngster.
