Travel Lifestyle

Guest Post.

It is the beginning of summer, that time of the year when you go on a hard-earned two-week vacation. As usual, you are faced with the problem of deciding how to spend your vacation.

Do you visit one of those glamorous five-star hotels in Paris?  The ancient and adored Colosseum in Rome?  Or the famous Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany?

While we would agree that your options are quite fabulous and thrilling, we also think that you may be missing out on an adventure of a lifetime by failing to consider chartering a sailboat for your next holiday. Below we have highlighted a few reasons to convince you.

Reasons Why Chartering A Sailboat For Your Next Holiday Is A Fantastic Idea

1. Chartering A Boat Is Not As Expensive As You Think

Before embarking on a vacation, be it a visit to Dubai, Paris, or Croatia, you’ll usually want to consider the cost. How much would the visit cost you? If you decide to spend a few nights in the famous Burj Khalifa, will it affect you financially?

If yes, you would often strike such a vacation off your list. When it comes to chartering a boat, there is no need for such worries. You wouldn’t have to break the bank to enjoy such an adventure. And regardless of how affordable a trip on a sailboat is, your comfort and adventure are never compromised.

So, if you usually shy away from chartering a sailboat for your vacation because you feel you may cringe at the cost, quell such a mindset and reconsider your stance.

2. You Don’t Need A Boating License

You don’t need a boating license to enjoy your trip on a boat, as there would be a host of professionals on board with you to ensure that you reach your location safely. Even if you wish to rent one for a trip down the coast, you wouldn’t have to apply for a license, provided you aren’t the one steering the rudder. All you need to enjoy a boating trip are things like your camera, snacks, and drinks, etc.

3. You Get The Chance To Visit Lovely Cities

You shouldn’t imagine a boat trip as a one-stop flight where you don’t stop until you arrive at your final destination. A boat trip is usually exciting because you get to tour several beautiful cities around the coast.

So after experiencing the intense excitement on the water, you get to experience loads of excitement mixed with adventure on the land too. The excitement, once-in-a-lifetime experience, fun, and memorable moments never cease with such a trip, and that is why you need to consider it for your next holiday.

4. A Perfect Way To Have Fun

Imagine yourself with a bunch of friends or your loved ones, housed in a fascinating boast fitted with everything you need to have fun. Imagine the quietness, the subtle wind wafting through your ears, the picturesque skyline, and the sun rays bathing your skin.

Imagine the endless fun you could have with your friends and loved ones, away from the hustle and bustle of the land, and tell us if spending your next holiday on a sailboat isn’t a good idea after all.

5. It Helps Nurture The Body And Mind

Embarking on a sailboat trip is a perfect way to cool off and zone out.  In fact, it is one of the primary reasons why people buy sailboats. The soothing breeze, far stretched waterscape, sea life, and peacefulness is just what your body needs to ease off those accrued physical and emotional stress.

The effect of such a trip on your body and soul cannot be overemphasized. You get to see another side of the world up-close and experience nature like never before.

6.  You Don’t Need Yachting Experience

You don’t need to know how to steer a boat to enjoy a trip. Neither do you have to know how to read a compass or the dynamic weather. You wouldn’t even have to touch the rudder.

A professional skipper would be available to steer you safely to your destination. All you are required to do is relax, enjoy the tranquil sea breeze, take pictures, sip a glass of wine, and have fun! The skipper and other staff members are there to do that hard work.

7. You Get To Experience Nature Up-Close

One of the major reasons why individuals buy sailboats is to escape the hustle and bustle of the land and, of course, experience nature up-close.

If you are a naturalist or a nature enthusiast, then chartering a sailboat is a perfect way to have an up-close experience with nature. The coral reef buzzing with several fish species is often a sight to behold.

What about the magnificent waterfalls? The open-water? Or the ever-exuberant dolphins? These sea features won’t only get you excited. They’ll also make you look forward to another holiday on the water.

8. A Family That Sails Together Sticks Together

Going on a boat trip is a perfect way to bond with your family. There are distractions. It’s just you and your family on that nice sailboat playing games, doing little catching up, and making lasting memories.

If you love your family and want them to experience an adventure of a lifetime, then you’ll consider taking them on this trip. They’ll definitely love it!

9. The Adventure Never Ends

One of the reasons why people get excited at the thought of chartering a boat for a holiday trip is because of the thrilling never-ending adventure.

Wouldn’t you want to leverage the opportunity of visiting places with unique waterscapes? Or experience journeying through the bluish Caribbean waters while feeding your eyes with the glamorous views?

When it comes to a boat trip, the fun and excitement are endless. It doesn’t matter where your adventure compass directs you to; provided you are on the sea, you are guaranteed an experience of a lifetime. 

There are usually arrays of fascinating places to be explored. Lots of sightseeing to do and sun rays to soak up. And, of course, lots of delicacies to stimulate your taste buds.


Chartering a sailboat for your next holiday could be that once-in-a-lifetime experience you have always been dreaming of. So, while you are yet to decide where to spend your vacation, I hope you consider a sailing trip so you don’t pass up on the chance to make your vacation quite memorable.

  1. Yes everyone should do it! At lest once in their life, just to get it out of the system. Because we all have that dream, sailing into the sunset across a mirror like ocean. I did it once, with a bunch of friends, none of us overly experienced. A few hours later, a fair distance from the coast, we were hit by gale force winds, not to mention the waves towering over us. Well we survived, but that was the first and last sailing trip on the open waters. Since then I stuck to the sailing trips across the lake.

    1. Whoaaa..what an experience that must have been. Our entire life just flashes in front of us while experiencing such situations. Once even I had a similar experience in the Andamans. I’ll remember that one my entire life.
