  • Daily price 1.800 DKK excl. VAT per hour, minimum 6 hours, maximum 10 hours (including fuel)
  • Price, 24 hours: 29.500 DKK excl. VAT (excluding fuel). In addition a steward at 2.000 DKK per 24 hours. Steward may be omitted by agreement.

As a general rule, fuel costs of approximately DKK 1,500 excl. VAT per 24 hours should be calculated for electricity, heating, etc. and approximately DKK 100 for fuel per nautical mile the vessel has to sail at a cruise speed of approximately eight knots. A few other costs can be added, e.g. transport of the crew if 24 hours sailings are combined with daily cruises. The fuel prices will probably also vary. You are welcome to contact Torben Vang regarding a calculation of the correct fuel amount and other expenses.
