					Sailing Vacation on a Yacht

An ocean cruise regardless of the destination is great for those that
want to relax and unwind. But if you don’t like mixing in with the crowd,
perhaps you should settle for something more private like a sailing yacht
vacation.

A sailing yacht vacation is ideal because you are able to personalize it.
You can choose to rent one on your own if you know how to sail but for
those who don’t know anything about sailing, you can get a package that
already has a skipper and even a cook for the entire trip.

The nice thing about having a crew on board is that they are familiar
with the territory so they can act as your tour guide, plan your
itinerary, and prepare your food. You should know that having some extra
hands on board will cost you extra but it is worth it.

Unlike riding in a big ship, you can charter the whole yacht so you are
the only passengers throughout the entire voyage. There are three types
to choose from namely the power yachts, the sailing yachts and the
multihull yachts.

You can charter a sailing vacation just about anywhere since there are a
lot of companies that offer their services. Most of these are available
in tropical destinations. You can try some at the British Virgin Islands,
in Florida, Caribbean Islands, the South Pacific, the Med and in Asia.

The two things that will dictate the price of a sailing vacation is the
size of boat you will be chartering and the season. If you decide to get
a boat that is good for 4 to 6 passengers and during the lean season, get
ready to pay $200 a day. During the peak season, this figure could
double.

Since you will be here for a few days, part of the package already
includes insurance deposit, gas, water, meals, outboard motor, inventory,
end cleaning, local taxes, ports, linen and towels. Drinks are not
included so you have to bring your own.

A sailing yacht vacation is great because it is more relaxed. You can
wake up at anytime and take a dip in the ocean before moving on to your
next destination. If you don’t feel like going anywhere, stay right where
you are.

But before you charter a yacht, do some research first about the
companies that offer this and don’t be afraid to ask questions. You will
surely find some through the web or in major sailing magazines. You can
also ask friends who have gone on sailing yacht vacations in the past to
find out if the service was excellent.

After getting the information you need, compare their prices and see what
is inclusive in the packages so you know which one is good value for your
money.
If you enjoyed your sailing yacht vacation, this won’t be your last as
there will surely be more in the future. You have to remember that before
air travel or cars were invented, this was the only means of traveling
and these days, more people are getting into it.

So what are you waiting for? Seize the opportunity to see the world by
sea because it is only a matter of time before you will able to find the
right sailing yacht vacation package that fits your budget
