Make the Most Out of Your Luxury Yacht Charter28th February 2017
Whether it’s for a week or a weekend, chartering a luxury yacht with friends, family or colleagues is a truly unforgettable experience.
You will have a lot of choice when it comes to deciding exactly what to do and where to go on your excursion, so we’ve put together some tips on how to make the most out of your luxury yacht journey.
You might go into your trip with a firm idea of what and where you’d like to see; that’s good, but it also helps to be open to change. There are a number of circumstances which can influence what you can and cannot do while on the water, and this could lead to compromise.
Unpredictable weather is a common disruptor. You might be forced to abruptly scuttle your plans for a fun session of watersports if the winds become too fierce, for example. Being able to adapt to changing conditions can prevent your day from being bogged down in disappointment, and can also open you up to things you might not have tried otherwise.
Your yacht companions may also have their own wants and needs once you set sail. Listening to suggestions can make for a journey filled with variety; if your party catch wind of a nearby spot they’d like to explore, be open to the idea even if it means revising your itinerary.
Follow the rules
Yachts come with their own set of rules. Most of these are simply for your own safety while others are in place to help safeguard the condition of the boat itself. When you first step on board, your captain will deliver the safety briefing and give a run-down of the rules of the yacht.
Follow these rules to maximise your enjoyment of the trip without sacrificing the health, safety and mood of other passengers. You might wonder why the captain has asked you to deposit your shoes in a basket (to keep the decks clean and undamaged), but refusing to follow instructions like this will detract from the overall experience.
Listen to your crew; act responsibly and respectfully, and you’ll be well on your way to having a hassle-free yacht charter.
Take a relaxed approach
A luxury yacht charter is a chance to let your hair down in new and exciting surroundings, so don’t put all your energy into micro-managing everything. This tip goes for corporate affairs as well as family trips. Whether you’re hosting a client, holding a team-building exercise for employees or enjoying a few days with friends, take some time out to relax and soak up the luxury of your charter yacht and all it entails.
It’s easy to get caught up in details, and you might find yourself focusing more on planning than you do enjoying your freedom on the water. A degree of professionalism and preparation is necessary, of course, but the best results will come from an ability to
Employees don’t want to feel scrutinised during a break from work, for instance, while the presence of a crew during family trips means you can focus on spending quality time with those you love, without lifting a finger. Take advantage of this and you will gain maximum enjoyment from
your yacht charter.
Don’t do too much
Making the most out of a luxury yacht doesn’t always mean rushing from port to port, squeezing in as much as you possibly can. Sometimes it’s far better to spend more time doing less. Instead of frantically rushing about every day trying to cover as much ground as you can, consider doing something more local. A lazy journey down the Solent can be just as satisfying, if not more so, than a breathless sprint across the ocean, so don’t feel like you have to make your yacht charter an action-packed adventure just for the sake of it.
