Like packing a good marine-safe suncream or loading your Spotify with a great yachting playlist, finding an effective insect repellent is simply a necessary vacation preparation. Here’s our pick of the best to help you out…
Thermacell mosquito repellent lantern
Let’s be honest, bug sprays don’t always smell amazing and can be prone to leaving stains on your beautiful new beach cover-up. Thermacell’s mosquito repellent lamps use a chemical called Allethrin to reduce mosquito and sand fly populations by up to 99% and are flame-free - making them ideal for family friendly yachts. Each one covers an area of 15 square metres so place a few around your yacht to enjoy the top deck in peace.
