Many people have a rather distorted perception of what yachting is all about. They hear yachting and they only think of extremely rich people lounging in yacht clubs with little care for anything else. It could not further than the truth. It goes without saying that there is a category of people that probably match this description, but they are a very small minority. Yachting lifestyle has nothing to do with a superficial and arrogant way of living. There is much more substance to it.
You will love yachting if you love…
When you are aboard a yacht, you feel the power to go wherever you want. You are only dependent on weather and time when you are planning an itinerary. How long you will go, how many stops you will make, how long you will stay are all up to you. This flexibility offers a great sense of independence and self-reliance.
If you see life as an adventure, then you are a good match for yachting because extraordinary things happen when you are aboard a boat. Some are bad (unfavourable weather, mechanical problems, etc) but many more are so good! Unpredictability is part of the game and people who cherish adventure enjoy unforeseen circumstances.
When you are on a boat, you are so close to mother nature! You practically live on the water and you get to enjoy this proximity to the fullest. Swimming, snorkeling, diving or just scouring the beach for seashells or just taking in the glory of the landscapes around you is an experience that nature lovers live to the fullest.
If you believe that the journey is more valuable than the destination, then you are made for yachting. Discovering a new cove with turquoise waters where are by yourself or exploring the coast of an uninhabited island may make your day. Little or bigger joys that only yachting can offer.
Yachting is for everyone
Does your profile match this description? If yes, take action. You may sail on a yacht that costs millions but you can equally enjoy yachting on a charter boat for just a week. The essence of the lifestyle is the same while your idea of the perfect summer holidays will change forever!
