4: What is the APA?

An APA is also known as an Advance Provisioning Allowance, and this is generally 30% of the total charter fee — allocated to the yacht ahead of the charter for the purpose of provisioning the yacht with the exact items required for the preparation of your meals and snacks during your charter. Should the 30% APA exceed the amount required to provision the yacht prior to the charter, and procure any additional items during the course of the charter, the excess amount is always refunded to the charterer at the end of their charter. Of course, the opposite may also apply, where an additional amount of APA is requested so as to cover expenses.
