Yachtico, a Florida-based company, has launched within the Sabre travel marketplace, a move that allows travel agencies to book yacht and boat charters.
The Yachtico app, which is now available through the Sabre Red App Centre, allows travel agents to choose from an inventory of 16,000 professionally operated motorboats, sailboats and houseboats around the world.
Yachts and boats are the new accommodation set for novice and experienced boaters seeking exciting vacation experiences. Yachtico brings yacht vacations within reach to all travelers by making their boat and yacht inventory available through the Sabre travel marketplace for travel agents to take advantage of this popular and lucrative market segment.
“This will take boat charters to a different level, as agents who choose the Yachtico app can easily offer travelers a unique, on-the-water experience as an alternative to the on-land vacation,” said Steffen Brunn, founder and CEO of Yachtico.
Unlike peer-to-peer boating rentals that come with a long list of risks, Yachtico offers a worldwide breadth of pre-selected, professionally operated yachts in every continent and 16,000 boats to choose from with options of hiring skipper and crew to create the ideal vacation any time of year.
Rather than spend a day on a boat or spend on select boating activities, it has become more popular and affordable to spend an entire vacation at sea with a wide range of charter choices from Yachtico and its professional partners. Chartering a motor yacht, sail boat or houseboat has become a bonding and memorable experience for audiences who seek adventure and quality time with travel companions. Yachtico.com boat charters also appeal to vacationers in all price ranges with Saturday to Saturday options ranging from $800 /week for a 4-person canal boat/houseboat up to $65,000 /week for a crewed 87 foot motor yacht.
