What is a transit log?

When you look at booking a yacht, you will notice that each boat also has an obligatory transit log to pay. This is a fee that the charter company applies to the boat hire and as such is not under the control of The Yacht Break. The value depends on the size of the vessel, how many cabins and exactly what is included. It also differs between charter companies, so two comparable Lagoon 42s may have different transit log costs. Be rest assured that The Yacht Break only deals with charter companies that we are happy with. We want our customers to haev a good level of service right through their sailing holiday, from start to finish

Each yacht in The Yacht Break portfolio displays the cost of this transit log so you are aware of exactly what you are paying for. Once you have chosen your yacht or catamaran we will add the cost of the transit log on to your booking price. This will speed up the check-in process on departure day as payment has already been taken.

What is included in the Transit Log?

Exactly what is included in the transit log varies between charter agencies. However, it generally includes the following:

  • Documentation of the vessel’s permit/registration
  • Crew list (any changes during the sailing week will incur an additional cost)
  • Final cleaning
  • Diving inspection of the hull prior to check-out
  • Outboard motor
  • Bed linen
  • Towels (not all charter companies supply these)
  • Starter pack (sponge, washing up liquid, toilet roll, ashtray)
  • WiFi

The most important detail for you, the customer, in our experience is whether or not beach towels are included. Often you are arriving by air and in order to minimize the size of your suitcase it is useful to know. Feel free to enquire which towels are included when you submit your booking request.
