Size DOES Matter

While there are certain situations where size doesn’t matter, picking the best charter yacht is not one of them.

If you or your guests have children, you’ll need to prepare them with more cabins or bunk beds. Keep in mind that some yachts have a maximum amount of guests, so keep that in mind when looking to charter a luxury yacht.

When planning a trip with a charter luxury yacht, you should take all measures to ensure that you are going in the right direction. When in doubt, you should phone an honest and helpful charter broker. Just as if you would need to call your real estate agent with any questions regarding your future home, you should do so with your charter broker. They are the absolute best people to advise you in the right direction. Your charter broker should be helpful, they should want to help you understand the various additional costs that coincide with renting your luxury charter yacht. They should respect your wishes on budget and be patient when looking for the charter yacht that fits your needs and wants.

Plan Accordingly

This means to plan locations so you don’t miss any action. You should have a specific location in mind but don’t be afraid to explore nearby areas and destinations. While it’s important to stick to your itinerary, planning accordingly can help organize your trip and avoid any inconveniences for the duration of the trip.

Check Amenities

Once you have the yacht size, a charter broker, and plan to how and where you want the yacht to travel to, you should take amenities into consideration. Do you have children coming abroad? If so, you might want to find a charter that is well equipped to handle young children. Do you have a guest or guests who are disabled? You will need to find a charter yacht where disabilities are accommodated into with elevators between decks and wide passageways for wheelchairs. What about the food? Food can very easily make or break an experience so make sure you take your time figuring out which chef bests matches your taste and your guest’s taste. Lastly, what activities will you offer for you and your guests?
