This can be considered as the getaway of a lifetime.

These vessels come in different styles and sizes, but they're usually large to some degree. When sailing over the seas, a suitable and reliable one is needed. To see an actual mega yacht, the vessels are mostly found in the Caribbean and Mediterranean regions.

These places are the breeding ground for them and have become quite popular. This is in part due to the stress-free atmosphere found there. Some owners have their vessels docked and parked there all year round. When it's time for a vacation or holiday, they just come get their "moving" home and go.

Owners of these vessels usually originate from the United States and other European countries, such as England. When they set sail, they enjoy the freedom and tranquility that is given them.
