How to Select a Luxury Yacht for Charter

Before you head over to yacht charter companies in Dubai to book a yacht for your next excursion, here are a few factors you should take into account before selecting a yacht:

Location

When booking a luxury yacht for your pleasure sojourn, you should have a specific location in mind, or ask your broker about potential destinations that you might enjoy. The type of yacht and the area where you are planning on chartering it, will depend on the time of year you are travelling in and the type of experience you are seeking.

Number of Guests

Just as the number of bedrooms is an important consideration when moving into a new house, the same is true of yachts. People travelling with children generally want more cabins, often furnished with bunk beds or twin beds.  On the other hand, if you are chartering a yacht with several couples, you should go for a larger yacht to allow for spacious accommodations so that nobody feels uncomfortable.

Cabin Configuration

Considering your layout needs is also vital when reviewing potential yachts for charter. If you are travelling with children, you would rest easy knowing that your children are close to you. In such a case, you should go for a yacht with smaller cabins next to your bedroom, preferably with an adjoining door. If you are sharing a yacht with other couples, then having some separation is necessary to allow for privacy. Cabin walls on yachts are not as soundproof as you would like, so be sure not to take up rooms with adjoining bulkheads.

Child Friendly

If you are travelling with children, be sure to book a yacht which is well equipped to accommodate young children, going so far as to remove any breakable objects from sight and installing safety rails near stairs. Tell your charter broker that you are looking for a “kid-friendly” yacht, and they will make sure that you are pleased with the choice.

Food

One of the major attractions of charter yachts is fine cuisine, so be sure to review the specialties and qualifications of the head chef on board the yacht you are considering, to ensure that their foods caters to your palette.

Exercise

If you are vowing to stick to your regular health regime while on board your yacht and burn off excess indulgences, look for a charter yacht incorporating dedicated exercise facilities, well-equipped to parallel shore-side gyms.

Water Sports

Dedicated scuba divers often look for yachts with a certified dive master aboard, in addition to a suit of equipment for diving. Visit www.rentayacht.ae to know about different charters.
