Yachting vacations used to be sole preserve of rich or famous; price being unachievable for most people. Prices have now dropped considerably with introduction of chartering and many yacht owners now offer other potential seafarers opportunity to ‘rent’ their boat for their dream vacation.
Yachting means you aren’t confined to any one area, or even any one island; giving you opportunity to visit various beaches, coves and beautiful coastlines on your travels. Alternatively, you can remain on your boat and watch sun rises and sun set over clear horizon of sea. Whether you are looking for an action packed vacation in destinations of your dreams or a tranquil, even romantic getaway for you, your family and loved ones. The possibilities are endless.
Where you can go on your yachting vacation.
Whether you choose to go bareboat, take a captain, or even an entire crew there is bound to be a destination to suit you. Many destinations offer complete package for your vacation. Spend a couple of days in a secluded cove, exploring beaches and seeing beautiful plants and wildlife and then rest of your vacation in exotic harbour on next island. Everything is possible on a yachting vacation.
