News: On the Yacht Charter Vacation Horizon in 2021
We're savoring the prospects of what travel will hold for us in 2021! The airlines as well as charter yachts are now offering more flexible bookings. The owners of catamarans, motor yachts, and sailboats agree that if there is a government-issued travel ban, your vacation must be rebooked for a later date within a 12-month time period. You can visit New England on a yacht right now and there is a small number of destinations in the Caribbean that will allow tourists right now with pre-travel testing. Check this page regularly for new updates.
The demand for travel in 2021 is quickly filling the yacht's charter calendars. Our clients are quickly confirming their yacht trips in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean for next year. See all this month's newest yacht charter videos created from our personal media library of our visits aboard each yacht!

🧿 TV Binge-Worthy: Sail the Greek Islands with Peter Maneas as he takes his Superyacht Mia Zoi to 227 of Greece’s inhabited islands. Season one starts where we began 28 years ago in Athens visiting the Saronic & Ionian Islands.
We think it's really an encouraging time to plan yacht charter vacations despite those pesky travel worries. Our charter yacht crews report, "We are all healthy on this end and are confident the guests will arrive healthy as well. Regular food safety and other health protocols are in place."
Exceptional sanitary measures such as routine cleaning and proper disinfection practices including biological treatment/cleaning will be taken on board before each charter starts.
Precautions are also being taken on the ground, where staff at the airport terminals as well as all drivers offering ground transfers are adhering to sanitation recommendations in order to reduce risk.
Charter yachts are a portal to meaningful adventures for you and those you love. This private adventure protects you in a contained bubble of fun and resulting in beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.
