Why a yacht?
Imagine opening your eyes in morning, pouring yourself a coffee and stepping out onto deck of your yacht; sun rising and not a sound to be heard apart from occasional drift of waves and noise of wildlife. Yachting provides one of most tranquil vacations you can imagine. You don’t have loud neighbours and there is no danger of getting room next to toilets. Stock your yacht with enough provisions for week and you don’t need to see a single person for your entire vacation.
Even novices get a chance too; you can charter not only vessel but also crew or just captain to go with you. There’s no need to worry about invasion of privacy, as crewmembers are usually very experienced in knowing when to make themselves scarce or when you may need an explanation of some of surrounding beauty and sites.
Whatever you want to do on your vacation, however tranquil or busy you want to make it, yachting has answer. It’s a unique holiday at your pace. And one you’ll always remember.
