APA stands for Advance Provisioning Allowance. This helps you to budget for expenses you will incur during the course of your sailing holiday.
In general, we suggest allowing 20-25% APA on a standard yacht or catamaran charter. For Crewed Catamarans, the APA is usually 30% and it is handed over to the captain to manage at the start of the holiday.
If you use up your APA before the end of the sailing holiday, you will need to top it up.
