Our good friends at Boat International have provided a very detailed overview of the 25 best super yachts available to hire for this summer holidays – in the event that your own VIP Hospitality travel plans have been put on hold.
A well-known Monaco broker explained in a separate article one of the reasons that bookings have remained steady and in some cases even increased despite the coronavirus:
‘In more ‘normal’ times a yacht offers an easily controlled environment in terms of the comings and goings of guests and other personnel. The passerelle is effectively a drawbridge and nobody need step on board the yacht as deliveries are left on the quay and loaded by the permanent crew,’ the company explained in an email statement.
As those in the industry are only too happy to make clear, super yachts offer a level of control that is almost quarantine-like.
A SuperYachtsMonaco spokesman said, ‘It is not unknown for yachts to buy entire new sets of crockery to cater to specific religious groups, to implement temporary bans on alcohol on request, to adhere to strict diets and other very specific demands,’ the brokerage explained.
‘So, putting measures in place to reduce risk of virus transmission to guests and crew is a relatively straightforward exercise.’
For the right price of course!
