The world is a much smaller place than it used to be. Fifty years ago it could take weeks and weeks to cross continents and oceans, but now it can be done in a matter of hours. For this reason, charter holidays have never been so varied. Traditionally, one took one’s charters in the Mediterranean during the summer and in the Caribbean during the winter. But now it is possible to charter a yacht within the Arctic Circle, among the Polynesian islands of the Pacific, or even deep into the Amazon rainforest.
Admittedly, charters in faraway places are by no means inexpensive, but for those in search of something a bit different it’s not impossible to charter a yacht in far-flung places. The world really is your oyster, and the only limiting factors are the size of your wallet and the scope of your imagination. If there is anywhere in the world you want to charter, within reason, then it is almost certainly possible.
With the Med and the Caribbean attracting increasing numbers of charter yachts, many people are now looking further afield for charters with a more adventurous aspect ‚ Northern Scandinavia, Australia and New Zealand, the South Pacific, Canada and Alaska, Central and South America, to name but a few. There has never been a better time to open your copy of ‚”1000 Places to Visit Before You Die”, choose a page at random, and organise a charter there (assuming, of course, that it’s not somewhere slap-bang in the middle of a continent).
