From the warm waters of Italy to the icy shores of Antarctica, yacht charter holidays are on the rise.
Luxury yacht holidays represent the best of the best when it comes to travel and one-of-a-kind vacations. Yacht charter holidays have been rising in popularity over the years as infrastructure has improved and yachts become more efficient, more accommodating and more accessible to a higher number of people around the world. Vacationing is undoubtedly being brought to the next level when it comes to luxury travel.
Freedom, Privacy, Personalisation
The beauty of a yacht charter holiday is freedom, privacy and the opportunity to completely tailor your break to your individual tastes. When it comes to luxury yacht holidays, there truly is something to cater to everyone. Whether you’re a small family with children looking to escape the day-to-day grind and spend authentic quality time away from the stresses of a busy professional life or if you’re a successful entrepreneur looking to unwind with friends in the coolest possible setting – yachts have it all.
The luxury yacht holiday ranges in budget depending on a variety of factors, namely the size and features of the yacht in question, the duration of the charter holiday and the destination.
The Mediterranean and the Caribbean are two of the most frequented luxury yacht charter destinations in the world, and it’s not hard to see why. First, you can spend all day enjoying the luxury amenities on board – from soaking in the hot tub on the upper deck to jumping on and off the jet skis and Seabobs in the crystal clear ocean. Then there’s the possibility of exploring the hidden coves and beaches that can only be reached by private boat. The great yacht infrastructure in both of these regions means that you never have to go without – or be at a loss for activities. In the Mediterranean summer, you can jump from Italian dining on the island of Capri to dancing the night away in Monaco in just a day or so depending on your itinerary.
Two yachts that are particularly well travelled in these popular yachting hotspots are the 38.7-metre sailing yacht Atalante, as well the 63-metre Benetti superyacht 11:11. Representing very different experiences between sail and motor, both yachts cruise the waters of the Med in the summer months before heading over to the Caribbean for the winter.
If hotspots aren’t your thing, there are plenty of luxury yacht charter holidays that cater to off-the-beaten-track exploration. Like the incredible 72.5-metre explorer yacht Cloudbreak which regularly brings guests to almost-unexplored waters, or the 56.4-metre Seanna, which cruises through the breathtaking waters of Tahiti, offering guests an exotic playground to jump right in.
No matter what you’re looking for out of your luxury yacht holidays, a charter holiday can deliver above and beyond your expectations in every way. Personal touches from the dedicated crew, jaw-dropping dining experiences while sitting under a crystal clear, star-studded sky, and free to fully enjoy your time with friends and family in absolute privacy.
