‘We’ll Sell Out’: After More Than a Year of Covid, Demand for Superyacht Charters Has Never Been Higher
The yacht charter market is much less confused than last year, but some of the most popular destinations are still muddied by Covid uncertainty. Many yachts that usually head across the Atlantic are staying in the US or Bahamas, unsure when France and Italy will open to charter vessels, or with another Covid wave, whether they’ll stay open.
The British Virgin Islands, which dropped its quarantine requirements on May 15, remains a popular year-round charter destination. “We’re expecting busy traffic the rest of this month and into June and July,” Raul Bermudez, vice president of MarineMax Vacations told Robb Report. “That will continue into September and through the rest of the winter. It should be a very busy year.”
