Which Yacht Charter Is Right For Me?April 30, 2018 | Share This Post
Luxury yacht vacations come in all shapes and sizes. They can be customized to meet your vacation style and your budget. In fact, many yachters say that finalizing their vacation plans is an exciting and fun process. However, some can find the process overwhelming.
Since no two vacations are ever the same your options for building your vacation are endless. There are a lot of decisions to be made when booking your yacht vacation:
- Where do you want to go?
- What type of boat?
- What do you want to do?
- What is your budget?
- What do you want to eat?
- How long do you want to travel?
- What experiences do you want to have?
- What amenities are most important to you?
- Are you comfortable traveling internationally?
When determining which type of yacht charter is best for you we recommend you start by answering some of the questions above. It helps to picture yourself on your vacation… take note of what you’re doing and where you are. Is it tropical? Colorful? Are there a lot of people? Are you staying our late, or rising early?
One of the first obstacles is to choose your destination. There are hundreds of yacht charter destinations. Some of the most popular spots include The Bahamas, Greece, French Riviera, Croatia, Florida, California, and throughout New England.
There is a difference between motor yachts, mega yachts, sailing yachts and catamarans. If you know where you want to go it will likely make choosing the type of boat easier. Your destination and preferred activities will be similar and will make deciding if sailing or a power engine is most ideal.
We are believers that there is no bad time to be on a yacht. However, you want to avoid obvious pitfalls, like the Caribbean in the height of hurricane season, or northern American during the holidays. Yachting season in the Mediterranean starts in April and ends around September. The remaining months of the year are typically used for general maintenance and attending to crewing needs.
One of the first steps in your planning process needs to be determining a budget. Your broker will need this information to filter vacations in your price range. Luxury yacht vacations can cost as much or as little as you’d like, depending on the type of boat, length of travel and number of guests.
