10 reasons why you should hire a yacht for your next holiday!

Dreaming of a holiday? Looking for something unique and not just a run of the mill accommodation stay? What about hiring a yacht? Picture this, floating around exclusive islands on an absolute oceanfront while getting waited on hand and foot. Does it get much better? Here are 10 reasons why you should hire a yacht for your next holiday if you’re not already convinced.

Ultimate privacy

Imagine staying somewhere new that ignites the senses with not a single person around except you, your guests, and the crew. Everything is private, from your tanning areas and swimming spots to your meals and entertainment. From the moment you step onboard, you escape the hustle and bustle, no unwanted visitors, distractions, or interruptions. Yacht staff are trained to work closely with their guests while maintaining uttermost privacy and giving them the space they need to enjoy themselves freely. Your attentive crew will fulfill your requests while onboard and ensure discretion at all times. Many charters offer flexible itineraries so you can recluse in secluded areas or head to more social locations.

Discover marine life

If you choose to go snorkeling on your trip, you have the opportunity to see an abundance of fish and colorful coral. If you’d rather stay on board, that doesn’t mean you have to miss out, turtles often make themselves known when the boat is anchored.


For a lot of people, when they think of a private yacht, they instantly think that it is a luxury solely for the rich, however, this isn’t the case. Most charter companies have an expansive variety of boats in their fleet allowing you to choose an option that suits your budget. Big yachts can take large groups and when you divide the cost between the number of people staying, it works out to be quite reasonable. Not having to factor in food, travel, and sightseeing costs can save you money. It’s the perfect excuse to get the family together and enjoy some quality time, why not do it in style?

Try something new

For most, experiencing new things sparks curiosity and broadens our horizons. Moments like these are memories that will be fondly reminisce upon for years to come. Watching the sunrise and set everyday on crystal clear waters is something special that you can get from everyday accommodation.

Explore multiple destinations

Going on a vacation that has days packed with adventure can be tiring and often by the time you get home, you feel like you need a holiday from your holiday. When hiring a yacht, you don’t have to worry about getting up super early or traveling all day in a car to get somewhere, you can relax from the minute you wake up. Breakfast is served to you without having to take a step. Kick back and relax while you sail to your next destination.

Highly safe

In the current climate, the idea of traveling to various destinations and being in close contact with others makes some apprehensive. Unlike a hotel or cruise ship, a yacht is solely rented out to you and no one else. You don’t have to worry about contracting germs from sick people nearby. All boats are thoroughly cleaned before you board and after so you can have peace of mind knowing you’re not putting your health at risk. Rigorous health measures are implemented to ensure everyone on board stays safe and well.

You set the pace

Strict time schedules do not apply when hiring a yacht. No rushing to get somewhere, you can just take the day as it comes. If you’d like to spend extra time snorkeling or floating around enjoying the sunshine on an inflatable, you are free to do so at your leisure. The relaxation you get when on a yacht is unmatched by other types of holidays.

You’ll never get bored

Whether you are looking for adventure or to relax, a yacht trip has it all. You can simply enjoy the serenity while getting wined and dined listening to your favorite tunes or there are unlimited sources of entertainment choices available if that is more to your liking. Most charter companies have an array of options, including jet ski hire, paddleboards, snorkeling, helicopter tours, and fishing. It’s a good idea to ask what activities are free of charge and which ones are extra to help you decide if you’d like to add any upgrades to your trip.

Get to know the area

Holidaying on a yacht enables you to explore locations you perhaps normally wouldn’t when traveling on land. Most charter companies’ staff are made up of locals. They are a wealth of knowledge and can provide you with information on the destinations as well as take you to spots that are ideal for photo opportunities. Why just settle for regular touristy trips, you can explore areas that are not only unique but beautiful too?

Everything is taken care of

You don’t have to worry about a thing when booking a yacht for your holiday. Everything is taken care of for you, food, drinks, entertainment, bedding, and recreational activities. All you do is have to let the charter crew know what you want to be included, pack, and arrive on the day.
