Our Service and Product

This is the Private Yachting Service – also referred to as "service". You can reserve the service through our Online Portal and pay online or by bank transfer. Our customers – also referred to as "Passengers" will be able to arrange the trip, vessel, duration, pick-up/drop-off times, departure/return location and calculate price using the Alargo website as an online intermediate agent.
