Charter yachts often have better communication and work facilities than most homes and even a few businesses!

Either way, these desks are set up for full computer connectivity so you can bring your laptop aboard and have full access. In some cases, the yacht will have a dedicated computer available for the use of guests if you don't want to bring your laptop. The office area may also be equipped with a printer and fax but, if not, they will be certainly be available elsewhere on the yacht.

With wi-fi becoming common on most yachts, you aren't restricted to working just in the office area, and you'll have full computer and Internet access with your laptop from anywhere aboard: a sunpad on the upper deck, a comfortable chair in the salon, or even propped up in bed.

Cellphone coverage is usually good when you're in a harbor or close to shore, but the modern GSM (Global System for Mobile communications) systems on many yachts allow you to use your cellphone at all times.

This permits you to make private calls without having to rely on a fixed phone in a public area of the yacht, and it also gives you access to your mobile phone address book. Those receiving your calls will also be able to recognize the caller ID of your cell phone. In essence, you can send and receive cellphone calls as if you were on land.

For those who want to see their clients or employees as they talk to them by phone, voice-over-internet protocols such as Skype allow video conferencing and some yachts are specifically equipped with large screen monitors for video conferences and presentations.
