The image of soaking up the sun with a good book in hand, and a cold drink in the other, on your own private yacht, is very appealing! Forking out vast sums of money to own your own boat may not be as attractive. Chartering just may be the perfect solution.
Here are a few reasons to start planning your charter trip now:
It’s about you. Your wish is your charter operator’s command. Think big, small, fast, luxurious, the list goes on. It’s all a possibility when you charter. All the details are taken care of by the crew and an itinerary is fixed to suit your needs. Do you see a theme here? It’s all specifically revolved around your plans. Basically, all you have to do is show up and sit back and relax. Once onboard the crew will take care of the rest. Bliss!
The world is your Oyster
Wherever you dream of going can become a reality. Pick a place, any place that you wish to explore. Decide when and where to go and the charter operator will devise an itinerary to best match your travel plans. Whether it is exploring a secluded, palm-lined, white sandy beach in the Bahamas or enjoying the sights and sounds of the Mediterranean: your wish will come true.
At the end of the day, it comes down to you. Visualise your trip; does it include sipping Mai-Tais on the deck while watching the sunset, feeling the warmth of the sun on your back while you lounge on a sun pad? Or rather, feeling the sea breeze gently blow past you while dining on deck? You get the idea. Charters allow you to make this happen, they are designed to suit your specific travel plans and needs.
Boats come in all different shapes and sizes, and price. It is possible to find what you’re looking for to suit your budget. Are you looking for an intimate weekend escapade or an adventure with a bunch of friends? Seek and you shall find your perfect yacht at the price that you want. N.B. Don’t want to burst your bubble but keep your expectations in line if you have a limited budget. The superyacht option with the jet-ski accessories may not happen.
Oh yes – ‘toys’ are also included onboard. Again, depending on what you have in mind, different yachts offer different activities. You’re probably bored of hearing this, but it all comes down to what you’re essentially looking for in your charter adventure. If it’s fun in the sun, then keep your eyes open for vessels that include, scuba equipment, snorkeling gear, kayaking gear, skiing props, windsurfing kit and even jet-skis. These are just a few options available and at your disposal.
In a nutshell, chartering allows you to expand your horizons and gives you the freedom to explore the world; wherever and whenever you like.
