Luxury yacht charters are the most personalized and private style of vacation on earth. Your experience begins several weeks before you actually step onboard, when your Regency Vacations broker helps you complete a customized preference sheet. You tell the yacht’s captain and crew what you want to enjoy—everything from your food and drink preferences to water sports fun and sleeping schedules—and the crew prepare the yacht, menus, and itinerary specifically for your arrival.
On the first day of your charter, your personal crew will welcome you aboard and make sure you feel at home. You receive a full tour of the mega yacht, including a review of safety systems and procedures. Then, the captain reviews the itinerary with your group. Each itinerary is a guideline that can be adjusted throughout your charter, depending on the experience you are enjoying. The chef, too, adapts his recipes throughout the charter as he becomes more familiar with your culinary preferences.
The mega yacht is entirely yours during a luxury yacht charter, so there is no need to accommodate anyone but your own group. If you decide that a quiet cove is worth exploring for two days instead of one, then you can stay longer than initially planned. If you’d asked for early breakfasts but decide you would rather enjoy snorkeling or swimming most mornings, then the chef will change the meal schedule. Water-sports toys are always at your disposal, as are onboard amenities including private gymnasiums and personal spas. Flexibility is one of the greatest luxuries of chartering a yacht.
Itineraries can be organized for all types of yacht charters. Families can focus on activities such as learning to sail or laughing along during “Pirate Night.” Honeymooners can enjoy romantic meals at every seating, with private shore tours in between. Special events like birthdays and anniversaries can be celebrated with decorations and onboard concerts. Corporate incentive and entertainment itineraries can include dockside parties for 100 or more guests.
The toughest decision when choosing a yacht charter is deciding which yacht is ideal for you. At Regency Vacations, we specialize in everything from classic sailing yachts to high-performance cruisers and luxury mega yachts. We discuss your idea of a perfect crewed yacht charter and then help you select the ideal yacht for your preferences, whether you want to charter in the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, New England, Central America, Alaska, the South Pacific, or beyond.
