Private yacht holidays are the new black for Australian family travel

October 17, 2018 Cruise No Comments Email Email

A G&T sipped at sunset as you gaze out over the ocean is truly a magical feeling.  With tourist destinations becoming more crowded, The Moorings is seeing families and younger customers gravitating towards yachting holidays.

Jamie Scott, Sales Manager for The Moorings said, “Our customers love to get away from it all. A Moorings yacht charter certainly offers this opportunity, whether they are a sailor or just want to relax and have a skipper look after them. We offer skippered sailing holidays with our most popular from Australia & New Zealand being in Tahiti and Croatia. We receive incredible feedback such as, ‘that is the best holiday I have ever had with my kids.”

The global yacht charter market is growing each year with the latest figures showing it’s expected to expand by over five percent this year. The yacht charter market is expanding on the back of rising disposable income of the population and growing inclination of young travellers toward sailing holidays. Overall European yachting holidays dominate the market. The figures in 2016 showed them to own 69.1 percent of the market yet the middle east is also a growing segment. The industry is estimated to be valued at around UD$15 billion by the end of 2027. (according to Future Market Insights).

Today, after 50 years at sea, The Moorings has established its reputation as the world’s premier yacht charter company with an award-winning charter fleet now including more than 400 yachts in 20+ destinations across the globe. Whether it’s a self-skippered monohull; a Sail catamaran with a skipper at the helm; a high-performance Power catamaran or a Crewed yacht with a captain and chef – the Moorings will make your time on the water truly unforgettable.

Some great discounts are currently on offer, and 2019 bookings are going fast, so start planning your yacht charter now!
