In another thread not long ago IT and I both commented that the days of the mom and pop cruiser are numbered due to increasing bureaucracy and costs.

Here's another nail in the coffin

If you take pilotage fees and other charges into account, what's the total % increase?

Only for boats going South? What’s the reasoning for that? Is it because most boats are going North and they want to keep the flow going that way?

Kevin - are you referring only to that situation or in general across the globe?

Sorry , my bad, does this help

 

Suez Canal Fees

Suez Canal Transit and Pilotage Fees will be indicated by the Suez Canal officials who board the yacht on arrival and measure the yacht; varies from US$300-700. It is advisable to visit the Suez Canal Measurement office and check the calculation to ensure your agent is not over-charging. Once you are measured you go on record, so do not get measured again for subsequent transits.

The canal transit does require any security fee to be paid.

The fee is US$8.50 per ton.

The canal fee is a return fee, so as long as you return within 6 months your return transit is free. You still however have to pay agent fees on return.

Sample Agent fees for a transit from 2016 are as follows:

1.       Port Clearance – 20 US$.
2.       Insurance Certificate – 5 US$.
3.       Agency Fees – 50 US$.
4.       Canal Toll – can give advance estimation.
5.       Mooring fees at Suez Yacht Club:
-          Up to 10 m long – 16 US$ per day and include Water-Electric – Shower.
-          10-15 m long – 21 US$.
-          Over 15 m long – 30 US$.

All agents' and Suez Canal fees must be paid in US dollars, therefore some cash should be carried. It is advisable that, where possible, the services expected and the fees to be paid should be fully agreed beforehand.

Thanks. Interesting. So real increase might be closer to doubling (with canal toll unknown), rather than order of magnitude.

The fee per tonne is on their measurement of course.

We were very pleasant with the measurement guy and our Grainger 46 was recorded at 40 tonne.

My guess around 9500kg but what the heck.

However those that got grumpy were charged more or not measured at all and had to wait more days at the Suez end of the canal.

Still a bargain compared to going the other way.
