5 ways to charter luxury yachts responsibly

5 ways to charter luxury yachts responsibly

Be careful where you anchor

It’s important to be careful where you anchor your luxury charter yacht, because dropping anchor on coral reefs causes extensive damage. It could even land you with a heavy fine and the threat of a legal investigation: in 2013, the captain of superyacht White Cloud was ordered to pay a $30,000 fine.

You can usually anchor in sand or use buoyed anchoring areas where available, but the rules change from place to place. However, your superyacht captain is responsible for anchoring and should know where you can drop anchor and whether you need a permit to do so. Since it’s usually the captain who would be prosecuted for any anchoring misdemeanours, they have good reason to make sure your charter yacht complies with the rules.
