Why hire a yacht? Top reasons to choose a sailing vacation over a cruise ship holiday

What are those best elements of travel that a yacht charter vacation marries in one fantastic experience?

If you love freedom, privacy, a wide variety of choice and the feeling that goes with star treatment, then a yacht charter holiday is the perfect choice for you. A yacht charter vacation marries all the best elements of travel in one fantastic experience… and so it’s as if you’re living in a luxury villa, staying in five star hotel comfort, going on a cruise ship, and setting off to discover our spectacular world, all in one.

Here are just few main reasons why to charter a yacht anywhere in the world.



• Guests set the mood as well as the tempo of their voyage, with assistance from the captain;

• There are no strict schedules for the yacht’s itinerary, as you might expect on a cruise ship;

• Stay in the ports you love, and linger at island paradises as long as you wish;

• In smaller harbours and around islands, the view changes constantly;

• Every day brings a new scene when stepping out of your cabin for breakfast ;

• There’s no better way to impress your business partners or clients than by inviting them for a lunch on a yacht;



• Discover the most beautiful coastlines in the world

• Enjoy a private cove for swimming on remote islands & out-of-the-way gulfs

• Jump into sparkling turquoise waters from the yacht’s deck

• Visit national parks just a short distance from your floating villa


• Dedicated, professional crew;

• A captain, first mate, engineer, chef, stewardess, deckhand and housekeeper at your disposal;

• Read the yacht’s crew profile before making your choice to step aboard;

• Choose a service style to meet your needs;

• Discuss the week’s itinerary with the captain while relaxing aft deck with a coffee, served by your stewardess… then watch your kids learning how to water ski with a deckhand whose speciality is water sports;



• A retreat on the water, accenting peace and serenity;

• A celebratory charter with parties by night, and spa and masseuse rendezvous by day;

• Share your holiday venue with no one but the people you love



• The number of yachts worldwide is growing, and so is the supply of charter boats in different cruising grounds;

• Yachts come equipped with water toys, and often there’s Jacuzzi, a bar, your own “beach club”, a lounge zone for cocktail hours and a spot in the shade for snoozing after a nice swim;

• Extra comfort doesn’t always mean higher rates;

• Booking in advance may save you a minimum of 5% on the listed charter price;

• A hotel vacation for 12 guests is on par, in some cases, with chartering a yacht;

• All the daily life distractions are eliminated, making for true quality time together;

• It’s a perfect playground for all generations assuring fun for adults and kids alike;

• Enjoy seeing dolphins on the way, cruising under powerful sails, diving with sea turtles, countless banana and donut rides, and watching a movie together in a comfortable outdoor setting, under the stars;


• A professional master chef onboard cooks just for you… and serves all of your favourite dishes;
