What Is Petty Cash?

Petty cash or a petty cash fund is a small amount of discretionary funds in the form of cash used to pay small expenses when writing a check would not make sense. For yachts, petty cash is usually used to cover gratuities, day work payments, crew meal reimbursements, short-distance travel costs, and other minor day-to-day expenses.

The Petty Cash Fund of a Yacht Explained

The amount of petty cash will vary by company, or in this case by vessel. It will depend on where you are traveling to and whether you employ day workers or delivery crew that need to be paid in cash upon completion of their work. Petty cash expenses can also go up if there is an extended trip or delivery planned due to increased boat fuel burn.

The amount of petty cash needed depends on the capacity and applicability of other forms of payment at trip stops and destinations. Still, cash payments are far more common and frequent on a yacht compared to a typical small business on land. The petty cash fund on a yacht varies based on the owner and captain, often ranging between $2,000 to $10,000+.
