Ever wanted to spend your crypto earnings on something extravagant? How about a bitcoin yacht charter? Now you can, thanks to blockchain technologies. For the 2018 yacht charter season in Southern California, we have partnered with Bitpay to offer these payment options. While traditionally yacht charters have been paid for by wire transfer, blockchain technology is more secure and less intrusive.
We are excited to announce we will be accepting Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies for the 2018 yacht charter season! We can process payment for charters from $5,500 per day to $120,000 per week.
How yacht charters will work with Bitcoin and crypto currencies.
The day rate for the yacht charter will be paid upfront in the cryptocurrency equivalent based on the agreed contract of the charter. This will be executed through a Bitpay invoice for the price of the yacht charter. Due to the terms of the charter, controlled expenses such as gratuity, fuel and provisioning budgets may be estimated upon request. We will hold a security deposit on a major credit card for provisions. Please note we can pre-arrange a security deposit in cryptocurrencies with enough time to coordinate.
As we launch, we will accept the following cryptocurrencies:
Benefits of blockchain and bitcoin
Being a small business, we are happy to embrace forward-thinking technologies such as blockchain. We are proud to be the first yacht charter agency to offer Bitcoin yacht charter. The reduced merchant fees in processing credit cards with large transactions is a tremendous win – for not only our business, but also the clients. We are looking forward to the added security and rapid processing for the 2018 yacht rental season!

Where we will be accepting Bitcoin for yacht charters:
Marina Del Rey is Los Angeles’s main yacht rental marina, located adjacent to Venice Beach, Santa Monica and Silicon Beach. We offer charters to Malibu, Catalina Island and the Channel Islands. Although, we can make customized trips from this harbor all the way up to Alaska!
Newport Beach has always been a hot spot for yachting. Located just 28 miles from Avalon Harbor, Newport Beach is the perfect harbor to visit Catalina Island from.
See sites like the Coronado Bridge or just explore the massive San Diego Bay. San Diego is also the perfect place to embark on a weekly yacht charter.
Why we decided to accept bitcoin
Given the nature of the low volume high transactions that occur with yacht charters, the industry is susceptible to fraud.
After reading articles about people buying Ferraris, Condos and yachts with their bitcoin investments – we thought why the heck not? There is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to charter a yacht with crypto currency! You can rent a yacht in Marina Del Rey, rent a yacht in Newport or San Diego!
