All About Chartering
All About Chartering
A luxury yacht charter holiday has something for everyone: the thrill of sail or the confidence of power, water-sports, divine food, sumptuous surroundings and first class service from a dedicated crew. Often assumed to be reserved for just the very rich and famous, there are boats of all types and sizes and at prices to suit most pockets.
All of the yachts recommended by Marlow Worldwide Yacht Charters are fully crewed. As a minimum on the smaller yachts there will be at least two highly qualified crew – a captain and cook/chef. You will not have to do any sail handling, but if you do want to get involved most captains are only too pleased to include you. Chartering a yacht for the delight of being out on the water. Your day might start off with an early morning swim. After breakfast, a gentle sail to a another peaceful anchorage to try out some water-sport toys such as paddle board or water skis, a stroll along a beach. Then lunch back on board, a snooze in the shade of the cockpit perhaps and another short sail to your overnight anchorage. Cocktails at sunset and dinner under the stars. If you have a more ambitious itinerary, then each stop could be a different island and sometimes a different country. Visit fashionable ports, quaint fishing villages with waterfront cafés, historic sites or deserted bays – the choice is yours.
Food aboard your charter yacht will be planned and cooked according to your choice. You will be amazed at the range and standard of cuisine even the smallest boat will offer and many of the motor yachts will have restaurant standard galleys with perhaps even a Michelin starred restaurant-trained Chef.
Most yachts are equipped to receive internet signals and there may be wifi throughout the boat – so, if it’s essential for you to stay in touch with family or businesses while away, you can. There are sophisticated sound and movie entertainment systems aboard all super-yachts with extensive movie and music choices available.
