Preferred Destination for Yacht Charterers

Recent studies showed that about 3 million yacht charterers and holiday makers took a total of 22 million trips to the Gulf. Together they snared about 163 million fish. The other reason why Gulf of Mexico superyacht vacation is preferred is because there are US Virgin Islands not very far away. These islands and small islets are the favourite breeding grounds for 75% of the migratory birds that cross this stunning charter region. The Gulf of Mexico also has a 42 km man made beach along the coast of Mississippi, welcoming both sailing yacht and motor yacht luxury charter guests.

$20 Billion Tourism Industry

The Gulf of Mexico garners more than $20 billion in tourism alone and one of the significant contributors are luxury superyachts. The flourishing tourism industry also created a large number of direct and indirect jobs thereby leading to contributing to the economy. The yacht charter holiday stakeholders are now concentrating on promoting eco travel in the region as constant civilisation has made the eco system very delicate and it is on the brink of extinction. In the luxury superyacht charter circles, efforts are made to undertake social responsibility and do as little damage to the environment as possible. These ecological efforts have led to the conservation of important sites such as beaches, jungles, national parks and islands near the Gulf of Mexico.
