marinas, restaurants and other attractions that each area offers to ensure a comprehensive
understanding prior to selecting your dream private yacht holiday.
2. Pick the Right Time of Year
Once your destination has been chosen, its now time to consider when you want to embark on your
getaway. Factors such as weather, certain amenities, etc. can significantly be dependent on the

are enjoyed best during the sizzling summer months. The smallest bit of research about your
destination and chosen season can go a long way when picking your dream private yacht holiday to

style. There are several key factors you must take into consideration to ensure the yacht you chose
meets your requirements. Yachts must be able to match your travel style while also accommodating
the number of guests that will be joining you. Ships can vary in amenities such as hot tubs, onboard
Wi-Fi, etc. Extras such as wakeboards, paddle boards and general water toys are available on many
yachts to offer a completely customizable experience. Choosing a yacht that matches your size and
