The Ultimate in Private Luxury
Ever wonder what it would be like to go on the ultimate luxurious vacation? Consider chartering a private yacht for a week and leave all your cares at the dock as you embark on an all-inclusive pampering journey with captain, private chef, gourmet food and water sports. With all your needs paid for in advance, including food, fuel, water and taxes you can just lie back and enjoy the 5 star hotel experience with the added bonus of different views and new ports to explore every day.
Chartering a private sail boat or motor yacht and sailing through the magnificent Caribbean or Mediterranean isn’t as out of reach as you may think. You don’t need to have your sailing license or any experience either. Even the most inexperienced cruiser can rent a yacht and enjoy a luxurious care free vacation experience. Few things are more luxurious than sailing on your own private boat, but with the availability of yacht charters becoming more and more within reach, you can cross off this item from your bucket list as well!
Private Yacht Charter vs. a Cruise Ship Vacation
Besides the obvious privacy and choice of ports, on a private yacht you will enjoy unsurpassed personalized experience. With a private crew complete with chef at your beck and call, say goodbye to timed departures and scheduled meals at group tables in the dining room. You can make your own schedule, personalize your menu and forget about the hustle and crowds of a mega ship. Explore uncharted territories unlike the commercialized ports the large cruise ships visit, and sail to exotic destinations where only private yachts may dock.
Choosing a destination
Private yacht charters are available worldwide but the most popular destinations are the Caribbean, Mediterranean and Greece. You may have a perfect route in mind or you might want to be spontaneous and choose an embarkation port and choose your stops along the way. The captain and crew of your ship will be able to recommend the best ports of call for your vacation based on your preferences. Do you want a private picturesque beach or are you heading on an all-out shopping spree. Maybe you want to plan a stop along the way where the best night life awaits or take a day exploring a particular island or culture. Once you decide on the general destination, you can either plan a route ahead of time or take it day by day. That is the beauty of chartering your own yacht and crew for your vacation.
