Continuing from last year, charterers are still keen to explore less obvious destinations, which falls in line with a rising interest in experiential travel. "We are getting more inquiries for out of the ordinary locations. Places like Iceland, Norway, Central America, Galapagos, and South Pacific," says Zamora.

"We are seeing an increasing number of requests for guests to charter in South East Asia, Alaska, the Galapagos and also Antarctica," adds Jason Whiting, charter broker at Fraser. "However, there is generally not enough vessels in these more remote regions to meet the demand although more owners are starting to cruise this way as they purchase more expedition style yachts and the infrastructure improves."
