Thermacell mosquito repellent lantern

It doesn’t matter where you sail your superyacht, if the temperature is warm and food and water are in plentiful supply, you are going to be susceptible to the irritations of insects. 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.

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.
