While the current coronavirus travel restrictions may have us all anchored at home for the moment, there’s no reason we can’t remain optimistic for the months ahead and start envisioning what our summer 2020 yacht charter vacation plans could look like.
Although there is still some uncertainty surrounding the upcoming yachting season, one thing we know for sure is that it will be unlike any other. Where the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean were once the summer’s major drawcard, international travel restrictions could see US-based travelers exploring a little closer to home this year.
In light of this, New England’s luxury yacht charter business is well positioned to experience a potential boom in the coming months. There has already been a surge in the number of yachts announcing their intentions to call the region home for the season – and we currently have seven yachts available, ranging in size from 63’ up to 164’.
So, if you’re dreaming of setting sail on a luxury yacht charter this summer, 2020 could be a great year to rediscover the beauty of your own backyard and celebrate all the local yachting gems New England has to offer.
Enjoy the Ease of an Adventure at Home
It’s no secret that there are plenty of stunning yachting destinations this side of the Atlantic, but beautiful sights aside, there are also a number of other benefits to consider when planning your summer yacht charter vacation in the New England region.
Choosing to charter out of New England this summer will not only help to limit unnecessary travel by commercial airplane, but will also reduce your exposure to crowds and public spaces. As more private planes will likely be available for charter within the US, those with access to private aviation can enjoy the ease of landing at Quonset State Airport, located just 17 miles from the region’s main charter hub, Newport Marina. Those who live closer to the New York-to-Boston corridor can also safely drive directly to the marina without coming into contact with anyone outside of their immediate travel party.
Keeping your yacht charter plans within North America this summer will also grant you some added security and peace of mind. Should you need to cut your trip short due to unforeseen circumstances or health reasons, you will be much closer to the comforts of home and medical access.
A Safer Way to Travel
As social distancing measures are likely to remain in place for the foreseeable future, private yacht charters will certainly be one of the safest ways to travel during the months ahead.
All yachts are required to meet the highest standards of safety and hygiene, and all crew members are fully trained in professional cleaning and sanitization practices, so you can ensure the health of you and your loved ones is protected at all times during your charter.
With limited crew numbers and a spacious setting onboard, luxury yacht charters also allow you to easily maintain social distancing practices while on vacation. Yacht charters are exclusive by nature, which means you’ll have the freedom to travel to new destinations and embrace the experience without worrying about coming into contact with too many people along the way.
Out on the ocean, away from the bustle of onshore traffic and crowds, you and your travel companions can simply savour the serenity and safety of your very own floating 5-star resort.
