A private yacht charter is indeed the ultimate luxury, and can range from a sailing yacht charter, through to luxury motor yachts, super yachts and mega yachts. This is the stuff that dreams are made of.
A phrase comes to mind right now... i.e. the difference between the men and the boys is simply the price of their toys.
One of the most well established locations for yacht charters is the Mediterranean. In fact, the mega yacht industry here has made a dramatic come-back in recent history.
Imagine for a moment every conceivable luxury being attainable on board a boat, right down to gold taps, best marble and the most exquisite decor money can buy... this is the reality in the luxury yacht department.
I have always liked the quote by William Shedd: "A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for". Such a great piece of wisdom.
If you are reading these lines, then chances are you already one of the converted. You already know the joy of the wind in your hair, the salty smell of the sea, and the romance of being at one with nature on the open waves.
So what part of the world would you like to visit for your private yacht charter?
One of the deciding factors for your private yacht charter will be how many passengers you need to accommodate.
If it is a sailing honeymoon, then something smaller will probably fit the bill. Consider this option for a second honeymoon. What immediately comes to mind is that scene from "High Society" with Grace Kelly and Bing Crosby, honeymooning on the "True Love".
However, if you are a larger party or group of friends, you might like to hire a crew and chef, and be totally pampered.
Another extremely popular region for luxury yachts is, of course, the Caribbean. Within these waters, four of the most well-sailed set of islands are: the Bahamas, the Windward Islands, the Leeward Islands, and the British Virgin Islands.
If you plan to do some serious island hopping, these options above are a good place to start.
