What You Need to Know About Yacht Rentals

Aug 14, 2008
Why not surprise your family this season, and plan an exciting and relaxing vacation on the world's most luxurious sport fishing yacht club. In no time, you will be having the time of your life, and having ideas of the plans you would like to make for the next season.

Planning a vacation sailing on a yacht is a nice recreational pastime. However, most people are not ready to plunk down a lot of money to purchase or finance one, so they decide to rent one instead.

Even doing it this way, you will still be able to experience the water and the outdoors. Being on a yacht can be your home away from home during the time you're vacationing. There are some things that you need to know about yacht rentals before you shell out any money.

Make a final decision on your vacation destination. Check out different companies that specialize in yacht rentals. Not all of them service the same destinations. Also, check how far you are allowed to sail with the yacht. If you can't find a company that goes to your destination, have a "Plan B" for a second destination.

You will need to get all the information in regard to pricing, insurance and whatever else is needed to make sure this trip happens. Find out all of the fees that will be included. You will need to know about fuel costs, customs fees, taxes and other incidentals. You also need to find out how many staff will be accompanying you and your party.

Make sure you know how many people will be going on this trip with you in addition to the crew. If this is a special vacation, like a honeymoon or anniversary, you will be able to relax and receive special treatment. You can even suggest going to a private beach or take in a water sport or two.

If this is your preference, the yacht rental cost can go into the five figures up to $25,000 or more. It all depends on the boat size and other amenities. You can also choose to rent a smaller vessel for a lesser price between $5,000 - $10,000.

With this price, you can probably travel to some of the Caribbean islands or the Mediterranean. Nowadays more people are choosing yacht rentals as private charters. They prefer the intimacy and attention they get with their own crew.

If the above is not an option, attend some boat shows to check out other alternatives for yacht rentals. You may find owners of yachts that are looking to rent their vessel. Make sure that the price is something that you can manage comfortably.

Renting a yacht may be the way to go for people that don't have the means or are not looking for monthly payments at the moment. You don't have the burden to pay additional money for insurance or making sure that the vessel is docked properly at all times. Yacht rentals are a great way for a relaxing time without the hassle of shelling out money every month.
