The Benefits of Chartering a Yacht

You have many options for your next holiday – thousands of package tours and resort hotels on a beautiful beach where you can get a great tan, dine with your family and friends, and maybe find a club to go to in the evening. So why charter a yacht?

We believe that chartering a beautiful yacht is the ultimate way to spend a holiday. Our clients tell us over and over again "This was the best vacation ever"!

A yacht charter holiday vacation gives you these benefits:

  • Stay in a different location each night without re-packing
  • Avoid the holiday crowds while going to the most desirable locations
  • Learn new skills that are valuable for a lifetime
  • Be as relaxed or active as you like with full use of any water toys at your disposal
  • Learn about the region from experts without taking tours

Being on a boat brings you much closer to your friends and family, because you have shared a magical experience enhanced by being free on the water together.

Many people worry that they’ll be too cramped on a boat, and that the close quarters will lead to problems. Having put literally thousands of happy clients on yacht charters, we simply have not seen this occur (unless the people really didn't belong together and knew it beforehand).

You spend so much time in the water, on the beach, or just enjoying the experience, that the closeness rarely seems to be a problem. If you feel cramped for any reason, just take a book to the bow deck and you’ll feel refreshed and invigorated. Or take a dinghy to shore and explore!

A vacation like no other

The combination of freedom and accomplishment that you get on a boat is a powerful, nearly addictive force. Which is why people who charter a boat once tend to do it time after time, and won’t settle for a hotel room when they can have the entire sea as their vacation home!

We get literally hundreds of glowing letters a year from clients - you can read may of them on our yacht charter testimonials page.
