A Roundup of Our Top News From 2018

26th Dec 2018

Dream Yacht Charter has had an exciting year and we would like to share some of our highlights with you. Of course one of the most important things we have done is travel the world attending boat shows from Annapolis to Stockholm to listen to you our customers, discuss new destinations you would like to experience and the yachts you have always dreamed of sailing. This year you also suggested longer sailing opportunities which led to us to develop new exciting one-way charters for an exhilarating sail and a new way to own a boat, so we added the Fractional owner option so more of our clients can join the ranks of “boat owner”.

Our aim is to make vacationing on the water as exciting as possible for all of you. As we say goodbye to 2018 and welcome in 2019, sit back and relax and find out some of the best news we’ve shared across our website and social media in the last 12 months…

We want to bring the world to you with new destinations
2018 was the year that we opened more incredible destinations in Madagascar, Malta, Belize, St Lucia, Maldives, Exumas and Turkey, as well as opening new bases in some of your favorite locations: the Maldives and the Bahamas. We also relocated our base in the premier cruising ground, the BVIs, to Scrub Island to accommodate our growth and to provide our customers access to all the 5-star amenities this world-class resort and marina offers.

New Yachts for More Sailing Options
As the leading charter company in the world our goal is to provide you with the best yachts available for charter, that is why we work with the leading boat builders to constantly expand and upgrade our fleet. Globally in 2018 we added over 200 new boats, both monohulls and catamarans, to provide you with the best boat options  for cruising in our ever growing destination choices.

Your top travel destinations for 2019
Thanks to the hundreds of Facebook fans who took part in our poll and shared where they most wanted to head to next year. Here’s a reminder of the results…

Longer Sails with One Ways options
Many of our seasoned sailors wanted more open water sailing experiences so in 2018 we added the option for one way charters for select dates and destinations. Discover these discounted one way charter options on our Special Offers page here.

New ways to own a yacht
Owning a yacht can be a dream for many and our new Fractional Ownership can make it possible. In 2018 we launched the new program through Dream Yacht Sales which allows 4 joint owners 5 weeks of sailing time each on their yacht, or to experience other destinations on a similar yacht. This program also grants you a 5% annual return and hassle-free ownership. To learn more about Fractional Ownership visit here.
