What to Expect on a Luxury Yacht Charter Vacation

When packing for your trip, remember your yacht’s size. Depending on the size of the vessel, storage may be limited onboard. Most yachts provide the same amenities you would find in a luxury hotel. Fine toiletries, robes, and linens are usually included.


Due to the various climates, your cruising area will largely determine what type of clothing you may want to bring. For instance, cruising through New England, you may need a sweater or windbreaker as the evening can be crisp. If you’re traveling through the Caribbean, the temperature can be warm year-round, but ladies might especially appreciate a wrap or shawl as the evening breeze can be cool.

Regardless of your cruising area, however, resort casual is usually the comfortable attire, unless you have planned a formal evening with the crew or on-shore dining.

You will complete a preference sheet that will be shared with the crew on your luxury yacht charter. The crew can plan your itinerary to meet your wishes through the information you provide. You may have several water sports you’d like to try or sites you’d like to see, so please communicate that through the preference sheet. The more details you provide will help your crew create an unforgettable trip. Your crew will also have several ideas to offer to you and your guests.

Evenings are a fun time while on charter, too. Take some time to think about how you’d like to spend your nights! Would you like to explore the nightlife onshore? Maybe you and your guests want to host a party or disco—complete with lights? Quiet evenings are easily accommodated as well. Many charter yachts have a wide selection of games, electronics, and movies to entertain you.

These are just a few tips for your trip. Most of all, we want your luxury yacht charter vacation to exceed your expectations.
