Top misconceptions about renting a yacht.
Dream Yacht Worldwide (DYW), one of the world’s leading ocean tourism companies, is making sailing and sea travel accessible to all around the globe. With personal sailing trips continuing to gain popularity in 2023, the company offers the most destinations and one of the largest and most diverse sailing, yacht, and boating fleets in the world – an opportunity for groups of family and friends to get out of a traditional house rental and out on the water.
Here are the top misconceptions or concerns DYW hears often when travelers consider booking sailing charters:
Myth: Sailing is difficult and for experienced sailors only.
This is a common misconception but is far from being accurate. If you can enter a boat, you can sail. Sea trips are for everyone, no experience is necessary when you book a skippered charter, which allows travelers to enjoy the quality time together and not have to worry about sailing skills.
Those traveling with experienced sailors can take advantage of Dream Yacht’s bareboat options.
Myth: Tight quarters.
Families are typically relieved to know that Dream Yacht Worldwide offers spacious catamarans that fit up to 12-14 people comfortably. Many catamarans have cabins that have their own private bathroom as well.
Myth: It is all about the sea.
The sea is the medium, you can actually visit many places and discover areas on land that you cannot access without travel by water. Chartering a boat is an excellent way to discover lesser known areas. Dream Yacht operates in 52 destinations worldwide, with a fleet of more than 900 monohulls and catamarans. There is something for every type of traveler in destinations across the globe.
Myth: Charter trips are boring.
Charter trips can be as exciting and as full of adventure as travelers prefers. It is a unique experience and it requires a certain adventurer mindset. There are many water sports and team-building activities that groups can participate in, plus plenty of opportunities to relax and unwind on board. It allows travelers to see the world from a different perspective.
