7 Amazing Reasons to Take a Superyacht Vacation

Vacation like a celebrity (on a budget)

This is a sponsored post written by Julia Rosien on behalf of OceanScape Yachts.

If you thought escaping to a Caribbean resort was the only way to spoil yourself silly, you’ve never chartered a private yacht. Forget about what you know about cruising (and their one-perk wonders) and introduce yourself to a decadent (and surprisingly affordable) way to travel – a superyacht vacation.

OceanScape YachtsJoining a yacht destination club (with access to private yacht vacations) is more affordable than you might think and whole lot more luxurious than your average cruise. We sat down with Todd Beechey, from OceanScape Yachts and came away with 7 amazing reasons we want to sail away on our next girlfriend getaway.

Reason #7 ~ You’re the director

you choose what you want to doLive like a superstar, without the paparazzi. Snorkel tourist-free reefs, play on beaches where yours (and your and girlfriends) are the only footprints, saunter through Nantucket or shop your way along the Florida coast. On a superyacht vacation, you write your own storyline.

Reason #6 ~ Playful perks

Did you know that you can sail the high seas on your own superyacht for about the same price per person as renting a luxury villa with friends? Jet skis, a private chef, crew attending to your every need, deserted islands, a different beach every day – just a few of the perks that come with the price of admission. Pretty sweet, right?

Reason #5 ~ Private luxury

Being dropped off to lounge in the clear waters of a deserted island with not another soul in sight (apart from your crew delivering fresh drinks regularly). There’s no queue to get on or off the ship and if you’re late for departure, you won’t be left behind. On a superyacht, you do what you want on your schedule.

Reason #4 ~ Foodie nirvana

What’s more, you get to choose where you nosh on that decadence. Do you prefer dining privately on the aft-deck or on a deserted beach, toes dipping in the surf between courses?

Reason #3 ~ Discerning crew

Superyacht crews are made up of career professionals who’ve been trained to provide the highest standards of personalized service. Think five star hotel service tailored to your preferences, carried out by a relaxed, friendly group of people. So if you and your girlfriends indulge a little too much in those fancy umbrella drinks in the sun and embark the ship a little tipsy… you get the idea.

Number #2 ~ Picture perfect sunsets

Depending on where you’re vacationing, there’s nothing like watching the sun rise and set over the edge of the horizon from the deck of your own yacht. A cup of coffee (or a mimosa) in the morning and your favorite wine in the evening, you and your girlfriends lined up in lounge chairs. Can you think of a more perfect way to celebrate each day?

Number #1 ~ You’re worth it!

a girlfriends getaway ... so worth it!Most of us work ridiculously long hours and have a bad habit of blurring our professional and personal lives. It’s getting harder to disconnect from those who “need” us in our fast-paced world. But disconnecting on a vacation that satisfies your every whim recharges your batteries so you can get back out there and do it all over again when you return home. Doing it with your girlfriends? An added bonus!

If you prefer an upscale vacation but still have an eye on budget, a superyacht vacation may be a good fit for you. Hungry for more information about charting a private yacht for your next vacation?
