Your Guide to Choosing the Best Yacht Rental
Who will you be entertaining? Make a list of the people that will be boating with you. First, and most importantly, you need a head count so you can make sure to choose a vessel that is the right size for you. Yachts can have passenger limits that range from 10 up to 400 people! This makes them perfect for friends and family outings or a professional corporate retreat or event.
Next, think about the general demographic of your guests – do you need a kid-friendly boat with fun toys and easy access to water? Do you need ample shade and air conditioning? Once you’ve decided on the number of guests and what’s crucial for them… you can move on to #2!
How long will you be chartering? Maybe you’re looking for a few hours of fun with friends and family. Or maybe it’s a weekend adventure or romantic overnight cruise. Be mindful of how long your yacht is available. Most yacht rentals are offered at half, full and overnight rates, however some boat owners or captains have limits to how long they are available to rent. An overnight rental can be great for small groups looking to experience a weekend on the water. A quick ½ day rental is perfect for a spontaneous group.
What kind of Yacht Vibes are you hoping to create? Just like yachters, yachts come in all shapes and sizes. Read all the details when looking for your next charter.
