What kind of yacht is best to choose
Choosing a yacht, you must take into account all the nuances. Most often people rent a boat, designed for 6 to 8 persons. Further, depending on the number of cabins, the cost will increase. Today, compact vessels are built that can accommodate 8 people: 6 in the cabin and 2 in the saloon. The captain’s cabin is easily transformed into a comfortable sleeping place. But in terms of comfort, for large companies, it is better to rent spacious yacht.
This option will reduce the number of disagreements on board. Do not forget that the cost of parking in the port will depend on the size of a yacht. For long trips or cruises, only 12 meters boats, with 3 cabins, are enough for 6 people and one captain. In terms of savings, large companies, it is more profitable to rent two yachts. The smaller the size, the less payment for the marina. This option is not suitable for everyone.
