On the hunt for a fun activity for the whole family? Book a yacht charter through Yachtly and take the gang out to sea for the day. From a casual morning or afternoon out during the holidays to a special birthday celebration, leave it all to them. Here’s what to expect.
#1 Book online
On the Yachtly website, you can choose from over 20 yachts, compare prices, and get directly in touch with their owners for booking. Payment is accepted via credit card (SSL secured). Unlike most yacht rental websites, you won’t need to request a quotation before booking, making the process a lot faster and smoother. Yachtly has a back-end booking management system that allows yacht owners to manage their own incoming bookings.
Each yacht has a dedicated page where you can find out more about what the boat has to offer, from how many guests it can accommodate and the number of crew members on board to amenities such as water sports and kitchen equipment. You can also check out high-quality photos of interiors and exteriors to decide if the boat suits your needs.
What’s more, the website has a live chat where you can speak to customer service officers if you have any queries about bookings or additional services.
#2 Fun-filled boats
The yacht charter platform features boats for all kinds of experiences, whether it’s for an outdoor sporty day or a relaxing time on the water. All yachts have a handy ice box and fridge for you to chill your drinks while aboard; most also have a sound system – great to set the mood for a party!
From Insta-worthy floats and banana boats to stand-up paddle boards and kayaks, there’s plenty to keep everyone entertained; if you’re looking for something more fast-paced, you can even excite the kids by hiring a jet-ski ($180 per hour). If you prefer staying indoors, you can chill in your yacht’s air-conditioned saloon and even sing some karaoke. Sun lovers can pick a vessel with a large front deck for plenty of lounging and sunbathing.
#3 Sailing schedule
The standard itinerary for each yacht charter is four hours, including a cruise of approximately 30 minutes to Lazarus Island pier where you’ll dock with plenty of time to have fun with various activities. If you’re keen on more cruising, you can also add a short trip to the Marina Bay area.
#4 Yummy eats
Yachtly can arrange for delicious food from EZBBQ to be delivered directly to your boat before you arrive. There are various menus to choose from, including kid-friendly items such as chicken nuggets, sausages and chicken wings. Up to 30 people can be catered, and you’ll be glad to know that all barbecue equipment and (environmentally-friendly) cutlery are included. Refreshing cold drinks and ice are also part of the package.
Planning your little one’s birthday party or an anniversary on board? The company can recommend party vendors to help you decorate. Or, if you’re keen to handle preparations on your own, arrangements can be made for you to board your yacht early.
