With land-based tourist destinations becoming more crowded, bareboat charter company The Moorings is witnessing more families and younger customers gravitating towards yachting holidays.
The global yacht charter market is growing each year with the latest figures showing it is expected to expand by over five per cent in 2019. The yacht charter market is expanding on the back of rising disposable income of Australia’s population and growing inclination of young travellers toward sailing holidays.
Overall, European yachting holidays dominate the market. The figures in 2016 showed it to consist 69.1% of the market, yet the middle east is also a growing segment. The industry is estimated to be valued at around US$15 billion by the end of 2027.
Today, after 50 years at sea, The Moorings has established its reputation as one of the world’s premier yacht charter companys with an award-winning charter fleet of more than 400 yachts in 20+ destinations across the globe. Whether it is a self-skippered monohull; a sailing catamaran with a skipper at the helm; or a crewed yacht with a captain and chef, The Moorings can make the time on the water easy and unforgettable.
2019 bookings are going fast, so start planning your yacht charter now.
