Luxury Yacht Charters An Attractive Option Within Reach, Just
This Once




                                           Luxury yacht charters can provide you with an unforgettable
vacation or short break regardless of whether you are a boating novice or an experienced sea salt. It is a
great way to spoil your family, entertain your friends or reward your staff. The cost per person day can be
surprisingly modest. And arranging it all can be a large part of the fun.

Popular charter regions include the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and, in the southern hemisphere, the
largest charter fleet is available on the Australian coast at the boating paradise known as the Whitsunday
Islands. Chartering a yacht is not a difficult process; it as a lot easier than renting a house or apartment.
Most brokers and their fleet are viewable online.

A charter operator will be keen to form a view about the boating skill set of the charterer. Each operator
has their own system for this purpose. One approach is to schedule a get-to-know-your boat session once
the charterer has made a yacht selection. These sessions are time well spent as a safety measure in any
case. They also allow the skill level of the charterer to show through.

If charterer competency is not an issue, the operator may decide to supply the introductory information
remotely; online via the Web or by mailing it in hard copy DVD format. In addition to a comprehensive
description of the vessel and all its systems, the portfolio of information might also include suggested sailing
routes, safe anchorages, special points of interest, featured fishing spots and so on.

Charterers do not need any boating qualifications, apart from required licenses laid down by law. As might
be expected, if the charter operator has doubts about the skill of the charterer, a professional skipper may
be assigned to the vessel, at least for the first day or two.

To recap, luxury yacht charters can be highly customized according to your specific needs. There are
usually more boat configurations available than you poke a stick at so range of choice is rarely a problem.
So get out there and feel the breeze.
