What is a yacht Charter?

Yacht Chartering is defined as the practice of renting a sailboat or motor yacht and traveling to various coastal destinations. Worth Avenue Yachts thinks of charter a little differently. To us Yacht Chartering is the epitome of a luxurious vacation. 

A Private Yacht Vacation is an ideal vacation for those who love being on the water in some of the world’s most beautiful locations, but don’t want to sacrifice five-star treatment. It is unlike any other vacation you may experience. From your itinerary to your gourmet meals created by highly skilled chefs, you have the opportunity to be as hands-on, or hands-off, as you would prefer. You are only limited by your imagination.

There’s always so much to see and do when exploring a new destination. A yacht charter offers the safety, security and all the amenities of a resort without the crowds or schedule.
