As restrictions lift in some of the world’s premier cruising destinations, it is now the perfect time to book your next superyacht adventure. While for many it has been a long wait to get back on the oceans and start exploring, it is understandable to have some anxieties about travel in the ever-changing environment of today. Here, we explain why superyacht charters are in fact the safest way to travel post-covid.

To begin with Health & Hygiene, and the very nature of these private luxury vessels ensures that the highest standards of cleanliness are upheld. Superyachts are controlled environments, and even in the absence of a global pandemic they operate in their own ‘bubble’, with strict limitations on numbers onboard. In destinations like Fiji, Tahiti and the Maldives, Owners and charter guests have already been able to safely fly in on a private jet to meet their superyacht and start cruising.

The professionally trained crew members who operate a superyacht guarantee that all guest areas are well-looked after and diligently cleaned. With your interactions coming only between your family and friends, as well as covid-safe and tested crew, any risks are well mitigated as you enjoy a secluded escape away from the crowds. In fact, superyacht charters have always offered socially distanced experiences, so you can relax and indulge stress-free with the knowledge that you are travelling in the safest manner.

When booking your next charter, you can also rest assured that you will be Financially Protected from any complications that cannot be controlled. Should your travel plans be disrupted by outside factors and events, your deposit will be protected, and you will have the opportunity to reschedule your charter to a later date.
