How to Find the Best Yacht Charter in Singapore: Our Top 5 Tips

If you’re planning a holiday onboard a luxury yacht in Singapore, you’ve come to the right place. In today’s blog post, we’re going to discuss what makes the perfect yacht charter in this part of the world. What do you need to do if you want to ensure your holiday at sea is a complete success?



If you are keen to ensure that your first yacht charter is not your last and that you remember it for all the right reasons, follow our top 5 tips when planning your sailing adventure:

  • Go Fully Crewed – Whether you are complete novices or consider yourselves to be accomplished sailors, we recommend choosing a fully crewed charter for your first yachting adventure in Singapore. When you charter a yacht, you are normally given the option of having it un-crewed, partially crewed or fully crewed. With a full complement of crew onboard, you and the other members of your party can focus on enjoying yourselves.


  • Duration Before Destination – There are so many places you can visit on a yacht charter in Singapore that it is difficult to know where to start when deciding on your destination and various stops along the way. To make things easier, we suggest settling on a duration before considering your destination. If, for example, you are only going to be at sea for a week, there will be no point considering destinations that take longer than 3 or 4 sailing days to reach from Singapore. On the other hand, if you have a few months to spare, the world is your oyster. Once you know how much time you have to play with, you’ll find the task of putting your itinerary together a lot simpler.


  • Consider Your Choice of Vessel Very Carefully – With so many beautiful destinations from which to choose and so many exciting activities that can be enjoyed when holidaying on a yacht in Singapore, it’s easy to forget just how important your choice of transportation is. This, however, is a mistake we urge you not to make. You will be spending the majority of your time aboard the yacht you charter, so it’s crucial to ensure that it’s perfect for your needs.


  • Plan Your Wardrobe – On most types of holidays, there’s no need to spend too much time thinking about the clothes you’re going to wear while away. In the unlikely event you find yourself lacking an essential garment, a trip to the local shops will normally solve your problem. On a yacht charter, however, you need to plan your wardrobe carefully to ensure that everything you need is in your suitcase. Don’t forget to include outfits for side trips you’re planning to take, as well as the obvious sailing gear and everyday wear.


  • Be Flexible – If you’re unable to charter the type of vessel you think you need or visit the destinations you’ve decided on, be prepared to listen to alternative suggestions. Reputable charter firms have a wealth of experience on which to draw.
