Yachting Trips: Why They're Not Just for the Rich

When you picture a yachting trip, what do you picture?

If you're like many of us, you picture rich celebrities sipping champagne and luxurious 4-course meals. 

But, we've got some news for you- yachting trips aren't just for the rich and famous. In fact, yachting trips are really great for anyone who has a little pocket change and is looking to take a nice, relaxing vacation. 

So, why should you choose a yachting trip as your next adventure?

Check out this guide to learn why yachting trips are so great. 

1.  More Affordable Than You Think 

Ok, let's start by dispelling the myth that yachts are ultra-expensive and out of the average person's price range. 

The truth is, yachts come in a variety of styles and sizes, which means that you can easily find ones that are quite reasonably priced. 

Also, if you charter the yacht in the off-season, you can easily find discounted prices. Plus, yachting is becoming a more and more popular way to vacation or just to relax. 

This means that just like hotels and vacation homes, you can now do price comparisons for yachts online. 

When you add this in with all the other benefits that come with renting a yacht, you'll realize it's a great idea 

2. Can Be Rented for Short Periods of Time 

Want a taste of yacht life but don't have the time or money to spend on a big vacation?

No problem. Yachts can be rented for short periods of time. In fact, many people charter yachts for corporate events, birthday parties, and even wedding celebrations. 

So, if you want a taste of yacht life but aren't ready to make a big commitment, a day-long rental is the perfect solution.

Also, keep in mind that if you rent a yacht out for some type of big party (like a New Year's Eve party) that you'll be splitting the cost among other partygoers. When you take this into consideration, you can really see just how affordable a yacht can be. 

3. Freedom of Choice 

When you pay for a yacht rental, you're paying for freedom of choice. Freedom to choose your own activities, your own itinerary, your own destination, and your own meals. 

With a yacht, you're in control of when you depart as well as the duration of your voyage. You can rent your yacht for part of a day, the whole day, overnight, or even for a longer vacation. 

If you're someone who likes to have the freedom to do what you want on vacation without being restricted to a specific schedule, then yacht rental is for you.

4. Escape the Crowds

If you're vacationing in a place that attracts a lot of tourists, such as Sydney, Australia, then you know you're going to be facing some large crowds. 

And, while large crowds are a part of the deal if you're exploring major tourist attractions like the Sydney Opera House, you can escape them. 

One of the best ways to escape the crowds on a vacation is to charter a yacht. 

With a yacht charter, you get to enjoy the various beaches and coves in a private setting. Plus, it won't even be too difficult to get to these places. Yachts come with experienced crew members who know just where to take you to escape the crowds. 

5. Great Alternatives to Cruises 

Cruises can be great for many reasons. They offer tons of activities that the whole family can enjoy. 

However, there are some pretty convincing reasons to opt for a yacht over a cruise. 

For starters, yacht trips are much more personalized. Because there's a much smaller number of guests, yacht crews can easily tailor things to meet your specific needs and requests. 

For example, let's say someone in your group is gluten-free and another person is vegan. On a cruise, you'd pretty much be on your own when it comes to figuring out what you can and cannot eat. But on a yacht, the crew can tailor the menu to meet your specific diet. 

In addition to personalization, yachts are also great because they allow you to set the pace and dictate what you want to do. With cruises, you have no control over what islands you're stopping at and when you'll get there. But on a yacht, the sky (or should we say the sea) is the limit. 

6. A Chance to Connect 

When aboard a yacht, you'll realize that life moves a little slower than on land. 

This gives you a chance to enjoy nature as well as life's simple pleasures. And, most importantly, it gives you the opportunity to connect with those who are closest to you. 

When you're free from a digitally-reliant world and the distractions it brings, you'll find yourself enjoying and cherishing life a lot more. 

7. Stress-Free 

Did you know that 73 per cent of people feel anxious about the prospect of an upcoming vacation? 

Going on a vacation shouldn't make someone feel anxious or stressed out! And yet, with all the planning a vacation takes, it's no wonder it does. 

That's why booking a yacht for at least part of a vacation is a great idea. When you book a yacht, you don't have to worry about making dinner reservations, getting up early enough to avoid crowds, or planning out the day. 

All you have to worry about is waking up and relaxing.
