Superyacht: Yachting is the ultimate type of holiday

When it comes to luxury getaways, arranging a superyacht for your own private use is the absolute top experience.  5-star luxury hotels, private villas or 6-star cruises may have their own appeal, at times, yet nothing beats the freedom of having your own boat.

Only by chartering a superyacht can you enjoy total freedom of the oceans, fully tailor-made itineraries and staying in a new location every single morning or sleeping in another bay, anchorage or a town quay every night.

Imagine partying at a beach bar in Mykonos today and attending a wedding show in Santorini in the evening. This can only be possible if you have your own charter yacht ready to move when you are.  And not only that, but the menu on board will be created based on your preferences and local produce available. Where else can you walk to the local market of St Tropez or another Mediterranean location, all with your own private chef and pick and choose the freshest produce for the dinner you always wanted to share with your loved one?

The range of yachts available for charter across all major sailing destinations varies in many ways.  Any yacht you charter should, therefore, have facilities on board you require, regardless if this is only air condition in cabins or a helipad and a swimming pool on deck. Regardless of the facilities, the process of choosing a suitable mega yacht for your own private charter should be a pleasing experience.  An experience that is enjoyable, as you sail around your favourite islands, National Parks, bays, anchorages or beach clubs.

The cost of chartering a superyacht can be high, however, so getting good value for money, as well as a top of the range boat, can be a complex process.  Having a fully independent broker on your side will resolve most of the uncertainties.  Private owners and their stakeholders will always try and push a deal under huge pressure, making additional claims about the superiority of their yacht, whereas an independent broker will present at least another similar offer to choose from and without a major interest to promote one or the other boat.

Thus, regardless of whether you are looking to hire a private yacht for a family vacation, a Thanksgiving or New Year and Christmas holiday, ensuring you source out your boat through an independent source is very important. This is even more important if your reason for chartering a superyacht is a special occasion, such as a once in a lifetime holiday, a wedding or special birthday, as well as hospitality or corporate event during the Cannes Film Festival, MIPIM Property Show or Formula 1 Grand Prix Race.

If you have chartered before, the best way is to provide your specific requirements and desired budget, as that will enable your independent broker to provide a bespoke offer in a very short period of time, in most cases the deal being one you cannot refuse.  If you do not have much experience in chartering, providing a number of guidelines, such as where you would consider chartering, what type of yacht you would consider (sailing boat, catamaran, powerboat, de-luxe gullet or maybe even a giga yacht) could be a good start.  The broker’s advice can sway you in one or the other direction, as some boats may be more appropriate for charter in the desired location or there may be a better deal at the planned time of the year elsewhere.

Whatever your plans in terms of luxury holiday, do consider chartering a yacht next time, as nothing beats the freedom of roaming the oceans, remote islands, secluded anchorages and privacy of your own superyacht.
