What is a tandem charter?

Usually a luxury charter yacht accommodates up to 10-12 guests in five or six comfortable and stylish staterooms. However, what to do if you travel in much larger groups with several generations, and want to sail all the way together with your friends and families? The answer is to charter several yachts that will cruise together in the beautiful surroundings of the destination you choose. The vessels you pick to charter anywhere in the world will anchor together and act as a unit.

Tandem charter is also a great option for corporate events.

It all depends on your taste and preferences whether you wish to charter two similar yachts or different ones to have direct access to diversity during yacht charter journey somewhere along the coastline of Croatia, azure waters of Sardinia or authentic Turkish coast. Some groups choose similar charter yachts for a tandem journey to have equal possibilities for accommodation and to enjoy the same layout style.

Yes, two yachts are much better than a single one! No doubt in that. If you travel with family and friends with, let’s say, four generations, it is possible to divide guests by interests and age. For example, during dining experience kids and adults can be split up. Grown-ups will have their dinner on board one yacht, while as children’s meals are taken care of by the crew at the nearby charter vessel. The same can go for fun activities. Those who prefer quiet time, enjoy relaxing atmosphere somewhere fore deck on chill-out pads under beautiful and tender sunlight, when others take advantage of the water toys carried by a yacht and enjoy water activities.

There won’t be any argument if one part of the group want to nip in some authentic seaside village and have some time out to discover local culture and shopping bliss, and second part of the charter guests decides to discover little nearby bays and fancies to walk some hiking trails in the woods. Then later on both yachts will pop over for lunch somewhere in the middle of the way.

Another example of tandem charter advantage is when adventurous guests want to sail to still-active volcanic island of Nea Kaméni (Santorini archipelago) while others prefer to cruise around beautiful Santorini and explore its black “sand” beaches. This is an obvious flexibility of a tandem charter. After any day program and activities, boats raft up at night in some cozy little bay.

Have a happy hour rendezvous, pre-approved onshore excursion or dining get-togethers aboard various yachts on selected days. Professional and quirky crew will prepare everything you desire for, just make sure to notify them about your preferences.

Tandem charter is something you choose when the entire group loves to travel together but doesn’t always share the same interests when it comes to leisure activities.

Popular options are to charter gulets or catamarans in tandem nautical bliss. Mega yachts is also a preferable variant. It all depends on budget of the group. However, whatever the financial potential is, it is more than possible to choose a beautiful yacht of your dreams. Contact us at info@contactyachts.com and we’ll make sure you have those options.
