SEATTLE -- Sending clients to Alaska early in the season can be
more lucrative for agents -- with American Safari Cruises, anyway.
With its Early Escape program, the upscale yacht company is
offering up to 20% commission on five early-season Alaska
departures of the 112-foot, 12-passenger yacht Safari Escape, which
joined the fleet in 2001.
On full-yacht charters, which cost from $56,563 to $70,243 to
rent, the gross commission to agents can be as much as $14,000 when
booked by Jan. 17.
The bonus commissions apply to the sailings scheduled May 9, 16,
23, 30 and June 6.
Staterooms include VCR/TVs and private bathrooms with showers.
The yacht has an on-deck hot tub, a salon with a large-screen TV, a
dining room and a complimentary bar.
The craft is equipped with four double sea kayaks, mountain
bikes, a motorized shore boat and exercise equipment.
The charters include fuel, port fees, food and beverages --
including alcohol. Individual cabins can be booked at 15%
commission, on costs ranging from $4,295 to $7,495.
Sailing between Juneau and Prince Rupert, the Safari Escape
stops at Tracy Arm, Petersburg, Yes Bay, Meyers Chuck, Misty Fjords
