This is the most basic question every first time yacht charterer should ask him/herself. There are so many different types of yachts out there, and its important to know which kind of yacht best suits your needs. This guide will show you how to choose what kind of yacht to charter out to sea!
The first and most important question you should ask yourself is this: “What purpose are you renting this yacht for?” There are quite a few occasions for yacht rental: fun and parties, corporate events, sailing, fishing/diving, family time (just to name a few). Once you decide on the purpose of the yacht charter, you can decide on what kind of yacht to charter!
This would probably be the most common reason for people who rent a yacht. They want to have fun, they want to spend time with their friends and family, and they want to enjoy the beautiful scenery that the ocean has to offer. This category would definitely be suitable for the largest range of yachts, from single hulled, catamarans, and trimarans. The essentials that they will need are: space, cooking facilities, outdoor areas, comfort level, and bathrooms. These larger yachts will usually be very accommodating of children as well, though it is always important to check regarding the features of each specific yacht.
For the more adventurous group, speedboats are a great option for exploring and having fun. Though smaller and less comfortable than their larger counterparts, they do still generally have bathrooms and seats, and their small size and speed ensures a wild ride for everyone on board.
Fishing boats are usually fitted with a platform or a trough in their design, giving you space to cast out and reel in your fish. While usually not the most glamorous of boats, they can still be quite spacious and fun to enjoy in with the right crowd.
Corporate events tend to be include groups larger than average family get-together, so a larger vessel would be the safest option. A lot of space is important here (you don’t want to be crammed inside a stuffy room with your boss all night!), so are the kitchen or catering facilities, and this is to ensure that everyone gets fed right. Many yachts also have projectors, dance-floors, and karaoke system features installed, making it more convenient for presentations and embarrassing Monday morning stories.
