The Best Yachts are Always Booked First
As travel opens back up and more people take to the air and water. You might be thinking of waiting until Black Friday to book your yacht charter, but this will hinder your chances of getting the yacht you would like to purchase in the destination you would like to visit.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, yacht charters were re-scheduled, cancelled and transferred into credits. Due to this, the availability of boats for the end of the 2021 season and 2022 is lower than pre-pandemic levels.
Availability for the past two seasons has been limited as the industry catches up with re-scheduled charters and credit notes. This is still the case for the 2022 season.
So for those thinking of waiting until Black Friday to book your yacht charter, it’s highly likely that the boat you wish to charter will already be booked (especially for high season charters).
