Yes, many yacht management companies also have a department that can help with your new build project. For example: Fraser, Burgess, etc…They both have their pros and cons. For now, yachts running fully on electricity is almost impossible. You would need gigantic battery banks to sail a few days. Hydrogen is already better, but it is highly inflammable. And probably the biggest problem, almost all harbours don’t have a fuel station to fill up your yacht with hydrogen.From a safety perspective, the twin-engine helicopter is the best because when one engine fails there is still the other one. Single-engine helicopters are mostly chosen because they are quite simpler to operate.Some yachts have the possibility to refuel the helicopter onboard the yacht. But there are very strict requirements for carrying jet fuel onboard a yacht. This is because jet fuel is way more inflammable than normal diesel.A Captain realises the need for an agent when he/she has not appointed one. Imagine being in a foreign country you have never visited

before and dealing with foreign bureaucracy; it could be a nightmare. Therefore, a yacht always needs an agent to guarantee a safe and straightforward stay. In most cases nowadays it is required by law for commercial yachts and yachts of over 500 GRT to have a yacht agent.
I hope this answers your question!?
Hi YachtNerd. That is an interesting question. The most used contract worldwide for yacht charters is the Mediterranean Yacht Brokers

- in reply to: What is the name of the most used yacht charter contract?
Association (MYBA) Charter Agreement 2017 edition.My favourite toys onboard are the Jetsurfs and Efoils.Hi YachtNerd. APA means Advanced Provisional Allowance. The APA is typically 25-30% of the charter fee and is used for the charter guest expenses during their stay onboard. The funds are usually sent to the captain four weeks prior to the start of the charter.

- in reply to: Who knows why ships and yachts sometimes have a bulbous bow?
The bulbous bow is a standard feature on most round bilge yachts. It works as follows: The bow of a ship will cause a wave. Directly aft of the bow will be a wave peak, and some distance behind that, a wave trough. A bulb itself will cause the water to flow over it, and aft of it to form a wave trough. When the bulb is designed such that the wave trough aft of the bulb coincides with the bow’s wave peak, the two waves will cancel each other out.

In a model test, everything is scaled down to the model size, the length of the model, the beam, the draft, the weight, the speed, and even time is scaled.

- in reply to: What is almost impossible to scale with modeltesting?
However, one thing is not scaled, and that is the water the model is towed in. Because water stays water. It is not possible to scale water. If you want a 100% reliable model test the tank should be filled with pure alcohol. But that gives also some problems 🙂Hi YachtNerd. The Gross Tonnage (GT) is a measure for the total internal enclosed volume of a ship. It can be calculated by the following formula:
Here, V is the enclosed volume in cubic meters.
Do you also know how big her battery capacity (kW) is?
