The Ideal Duration of a Yacht Charter
Chartering a yacht is a great experience for any length of time, but there is little argument that an extended stay is equated with a more diverse and full experience. In fact, most yachting professionals strongly recommend that your charter last at least one week. The top yachting destinations of the world are interesting places and having enough time is concern number one.
In order to ensure you can get the most out of your trip, you need to have ample time. Many of the best yacht charter destinations are not doable in just a few days. So, in order to ensure you are not disappointed and that you have time to hit all the must sees on your vacation, we recommended planning for a least seven full days. If that sounds too short, there are yacht charters available with extended stay options.
Extended Stay Options
Imagine waking up on a yacht, with your closest friends and family, for two weeks straight, or even a month. Sounds dreamy, right? An extended yacht charter is the ideal vacation for families taking advantage of summer vacation time, newlyweds celebrating their marriage and retirees who are jumping into the non-working world feet first.
So, how do you know if an extended stay option is right for you? We’ve outlined some questions to consider when determining the duration of your yacht vacation:
- What is the cost difference between a short excursion and a longer excursion? Using a little division you can determine the cost per day for both the shorter and longer trip. The numbers might surprise you and we’re sure they will help you make a decision about the ideal duration of your vacation. In many instances the longer trip yields a cheaper cost per day.

- What are the “must sees” on your trip? Surely there are places you want to see, dishes you want to try and activities you want to master while on your yacht vacation. Compile these wishes into a list and start some research. Determine how long each of these activities would take, considering travel time, activity time and recovery time. Evaluating your “must sees” can help determine the minimum amount of time you must budget for in order to see and experience everything on your list.
- Who is joining you on your charter? Now, this might seem like a weird question to ask, but when considering an extended yacht charter it is necessary for two reasons: (1) you want to make sure you can still enjoy the company of your guests on day 12 and beyond, and (2) on an extended yacht you will likely have time for guests to join in on the fun. A yacht can be a small place when someone is on your nerves, so it is important to think about how long you could peacefully enjoy the company of your travel partners. In addition, if not everyone is on board (pun fully intended) with your extended trip, consider having friends or family join you at different destinations.
