Sailing the world on your very own exquisite megayacht every single day of the year is a fantasy we all like to flirt with. Unfortunately, sometimes the landlocked world calls us away from the bright and breezy breath of the ocean, the scent of coconuts and rum, and the divine wonder of waking up to a blue sky and sea every single morning. Rather than leaving your mesmerizing megayacht to sit in the marina waiting for you there is another way. Turning your yacht into a luxury charter can be an amazing opportunity to turn your private pleasure playground into a capital investment. Beautiful boats like MY Starfire make highly sought after luxury yacht charters for those seeking to escape for a week or two or even a month and more into the salt water bliss of the blue horizon. If you have a gorgeous yacht, a well-tuned crew, and a wonderfully willing captain then reaping the benefits of owning a luxury charter yacht could be the answer you have been waiting for.
Unless you want to dedicate an extraordinary amount of time to putting your own yacht up for charter you are certainly best seeking a broker or agency to represent you in this niche and yet saturated market. A brilliant broker is worth their weight in gold, as they can be the difference between your boat gliding out into the water or it sitting tallying up mooring fees. Not only can a high class broker ensure that all the paperwork is in order, but they can also match your megayacht with those seeking a floating oasis to charter in the sun. Leaving your yacht in good hands brings with it a rosy flush of relief, knowing that you don’t have to lift a finger to know that your megayacht is showing someone somewhere the perfect pleasures of the luxury world.
Make a Visual Impact
Luxury charter guests are often seeking something that will perfect their world and this means making a visual statement with your megayacht. If it’s been a few years since your yacht has had a makeover now could be the perfect time. All megayachts’ have their own unique design style and this is what makes them truly special. Yet this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t consider sending out a personal interior designer to seek the softest linens, beautiful new drapes, a handspun silk rug or two, a few sculptures and art pieces, a small collection of antiques or new silverware for all those gourmet suppers. The beauty is always in the details and the more attention you pay to the final flourishes, the more your megayacht will be in high demand.
Add Toys and Tenders
The more amenities your luxury megayacht boasts the more in demand it will be. Luxury charter guests are seeking exceptional entertaining platforms that can easily encapsulate a romantic honeymoon escape, a family fun holiday, or even a sultry superyacht party space that takes spring break to a whole new level. You can appeal to many genres when you stock your megayacht with an array of entertainment, toys and tenders. Of course water toys are a must – guests will want to snorkel the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean, kayak the rugged gold coastline of Croatia, slide from the top deck into the sea after a few cold beers in Ibiza, and race Jet Skis in the outer islands of the beautiful Bahamas. Onboard you can plan for a sauna to be added, or invest in a new impressive sound system, an outdoor cinema, or even import a baby grand piano. The whole ethos is to turn your megayacht into an endless array of fun and to make the possibilities for enjoyment endless.
Pick the Perfect Staff
Finally make sure that when it comes to putting your megayacht out there to be a charter dream that you have the best crew you can find. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how beautiful your yacht is, how dreamy the destination, and how good the toys if you have a crew that doesn’t know how to cater for your needs. The crew you choose should be tight knit, they should work seamlessly as a unit, they should be well versed in being versatile to meet the demands of an array of clients, and they should be able to dedicate unrivalled attention to meet the whims and desires of all who step onboard. Remember the right captain and the right crew who know how to work in harmony together can truly make or break a luxury charter experience.
