Avoiding the APA is not possible as this is necessary for the crew to provision and fuel up the vessel ahead of your charter. Everything purchased through the APA is for your (guest) usage completely and the crew will keep a very organised APA report which will be presented to you at the end of the charter, where you will be able to see what was spent and how much leftover APA there is (if any). Any APA not spent will be refunded to you following the end of your charter. On the other hand, if your expenses exceed the APA amount paid, you will be expected to reimburse the yacht.
