Sailing Away on a Luxury Yacht

Apr 3, 2008
Most people fantasize about sailing on a luxury yacht, but most people don't quite have $10 million or so to make their fantasy a reality.

Luxury Yachts for Charter

The good news is you can rent a luxury boat or yacht for a few days or a week. Most charter companies provide a full crew, so that you can just relax and enjoy the high life. See how the other half lives on a luxury boat charter and enjoy exquisite surroundings. You'll have all of your meals prepared by a professional chef, and waiters will bring you drinks. The charter company crew members are on hand to provide instructions for water sports like deep sea fishing, scuba diving, or windsurfing.

You don't need to bring anything with you except your clothes. The boats come fully equipped with everything you'll need including dinnerware and linens. Depending on your choice of route and style, they can also provide scuba equipment, canoes, kayaks and fishing equipment. Before you sail you'll fill out paperwork detailing your requirements. On the food preference sheet you'll list your like and dislikes, and all your drink choices, including sodas, wine, beer and spirits. Then the crew will take care of you in ultimate style.

Plan an offshore party with up to 12 guests or a romantic getaway for two. It's a great idea for a family vacation. There are a wide variety of charter companies eager to rent out the most luxurious of boats. You can enjoy a few days cruising on a lake or river, or head out to explore the Seven Seas.

Owning a Luxury Boat

Sailing on a luxury boat is definitely an opulent experience, but if you want to truly consider yourself a potentate, you must own a yacht. Some yachts are so large and magnificent that they are like cruise liners. A high-end yacht can sell for sixty million dollars. Others are small two person yachts that are meant for sailing. Even the least expensive yachts sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars. It's important to know your budget before you set out to buy a yacht.

Yachts come in a wide range of types, sizes, and styles. Before you start pricing luxury boats, you need to know what you're looking for. If haven't ever been on a yacht before, try a crewed charter to get an idea what a treat you're in for. It can help give you some preferences and an idea what you're looking for.

Unless you are an experienced sailor, you will probably be looking for a motor yacht. They can run by propeller or jet engine. A small yacht can have a couple of small cabins and a galley. Not very luxurious is it? A true luxury yacht has several decks and includes many splendidly appointed cabins, an office, family rooms, a library and a theater. There's a formal dining room, bars, salons, and of course a state of the art galley. For entertainment you will have a swimming pool, several Jacuzzis, an arcade, a disco, smaller pleasure boats, and possibly even a helicopter landing pad.

Whether you decide to rent or own, sailing on a luxury boat is a pleasure that you will not soon forget. It is the ultimate vacation experience to visit exotic places in super extravagant style.
