ANACORTES YACHT CHARTERS offers a unique opportunity. During the spring or fall seasons a select group of our yacht owners will allow you to charter between Anacortes and Desolation Sound, Port Hardy/Pt. McNeill as a One-Way charter. (For SE Alaska, special circumstances apply. Call for details). Become one of the lucky few to reserve a vessel for the trip of a lifetime. **Please keep in mind that most One-Way trips originate at our charter base in Anacortes, WA. unless advertised otherwise.
All One-Way charters within AYC's stated cruising grounds to the 51st parallel (Port Hardy/Port McNeill area) are based on current Seasonal Rates. Required Minimums:Vancouver, BC or Desolation Sound - 10 days; Port Hardy - 2 weeks; SE Alaska, if approved requires a miniumu of a 4-week booking.
Drop fees apply to all One Way charters to & from Vancouver/Desolation Sound and Port Hardy/Pt McNeill areas to cover additional 'turn' fees that will be incurred. (The fee for vessels to Desolation Sound up to 49' is $1000., and for 50' plus yachts is $1500. For Port Hardy, to 49' $1500., 50'+ is $2000.) An additional Insurance Refundable Damage Deposit applies to any charter that travels north of Port Hardy, and only with Insurance approval,
PLEASE NOTE: Special Cancellation terms apply to all One-Way charters. Due to scheduling, and the marketing of return trips, more stringent payment and cancellation terms must be applied: If booked 121+ days prior 50% is due at booking, and 30% of that is immediately non-refundable. At 120 days prior to the trip, the entire balance is due, and is immediately non-refundable. Also, if another client or the vessel owner and/or his guests have made travel arrangements or booked vacation dates for the return trip prior to 120 days, there will be no refund for any reason, as they have based their vacation plans on your charter commitment.
Policies can differ slightly by boat as per agreement with boat owner. Owners may from time to time offer special deals on a One-Way trip to match their vacation dates!
AYC will assess your Boating Background Resume, and make suggestions to help you prepare for a fantastic voyage! The yacht owner's insurance underwriter reserves the right to approve all resumes.
