Sailing yachts for charter
While the majority of charters are booked on motor yachts, there are plenty of people who prefer the calm and tranquility of sail. Around 15 to 20 percent of the charter fleet is sail-powered, and these boats tend to appeal to people who prefer peace and quiet, or who are concerned about their carbon footprint, or who don’t want to pay large fuel bills, or who simply like the elegance and tradition of a sailing yacht.
Sailing yachts tend to differ from motor yachts in a few fundamental ways. The interior volume of a sailing yacht is generally less than the same-sized motor yacht, and there is usually less space for loafing around on deck. Sailboats tend to be more traditional, too, so Jacuzzis and on-board cinemas are a rarity. But the tranquility of cruising under sail can be the perfect way to get away and unwind.
