Others, offer their vessels for luxury yacht charter around various destinations in the world. Two of the most important destinations from yacht rental point of view are the Mediterranean (mainly in the summer) and the Caribbean (during the Northern Hemisphere’s winter months). Other important luxury yacht charter destinations include the South Pacific, Asia, Northern Europe, with remote destinations such as Antarctica and Pacific North West being increasingly sought-after by adventure-seeking yacht charter clients.

Luxury yachts offer deluxe and luxurious accommodation in cabins, with en suite bathrooms, the finest in furnishing and linens, latest in technology, air-conditioning and various other comforts expected of these boats. There is usually one or more saloons available for entertainment, socialising and relaxation, as well as numerous dining options, including al fresco dining possibilities.
