If chartering a superyacht in the Mediterranean, tip of 10% is acceptable.  This is advisory and not a must, as if the clients received top service, they can also increase the tip, while on the other side poor service can result in no tips at all, although this is frowned upon. In the Caribbean, in particular on vessels crewed or managed by US teams, the tip is usually set at 20% obligatory.

Are there any discounts available?
The discounts are readily available on most yachts and usually at all times. High season weeks on newest yachts will not be discounted in most cases however. The most popular yachts such as Sunreef 80 or new Azimut motor yachts will also in most cases only offer full rates.  However, by booking in advance, or by booking longer term and opting for best value yachts rather than best and newest yachts, you can get a reasonable and at times bigger discount.
