Amidst the unpredictability of borders and travel restrictions in the coronavirus era, superyacht charters are offering Penalty-Free Cancellations to help guests plan their next luxury escape with confidence. The rise in these policies is one of the many ways in which the yachting industry is responding to the situation and offering new ways to accommodate charterers.
Since the coronavirus pandemic significantly altered the world we live in, superyacht charters have been seen as the safest and securest way to travel. The private nature of superyachts guarantees the highest levels of hygiene and cleanliness onboard, with a professional crew looking after an exclusive group of guests onboard. The creation of your own superyacht “bubble” provides the perfect platform for socially distanced getaways to the most exotic regions of the world.
The constant back and forth of both international and state borders may have caused some concern amongst charterers looking to book their next superyacht adventure. However, fears that outbreaks and lockdowns will affect the safety and finances of a superyacht charter have been allayed by the growing trend of Penalty-Free Cancellations introduced by yacht owners and charter agencies.
As a member of MYBA The Worldwide Yachting Association, Ocean Alliance operates on the highest ethical standards. The MYBA Charter Agreement has been amended to meet client needs and offers reassurance in the case that their luxury superyacht charter is affected by a travel ban or other coronavirus-related circumstance. Penalty-Free Cancellations instil confidence through greater flexibility when planning future superyacht charters. With all the security in place, you can start dreaming up your next luxury vacation on the water.

Private aviation to and from your superyacht is being used more commonly to enhance safety, while a number of stringent onboard measures give you peace of mind during the entirety of your charter.
