LUXURY CRUISE: yacht versus villa

The Cannes 2023 film festival drew to a close recently, having welcomed a galaxy of Hollywood stars to enjoy the glamorous event. And the sleek superyachts anchored off the coast of Cannes have become as much a part of the event as the stars themselves. From Rafael Nadal’s superyacht, the Beethoven, to the stunning decks of James Packer’s IJE, which hosted serial yacht fans Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire, the 76th annual film festival saw the rich and famous anchored off the Cote d’Azur in style.

But if you think sailing in a superyacht is only for the likes of Leo, think again.  Chartering yachts has long been associated with the rich and famous however, this dynamic is changing. As the cost of living increases, so does the price of an average holiday on land, for a week in the sun. 

Yes, a yacht can be cheaper than a luxury villa.

The sharing economy has seen a boom in the travel sector in recent years, with the advent of accommodation sites like Air BnB, and sailing has not been left out. 

Our friends at Borrow a Boat are leading the charge as a yacht and boat charter portal for boat owners, with around 45,000 boats in over 65 countries worldwide from Thailand to Croatia, Portsmouth to Scotland.

So why not push the boat out and book a once in a lifetime experience in a beautiful location, on a breath-taking boat for the same price as a luxury villa?

Greece- Sailing boat Oceanis 51.1 (2020) £3949 for 12 guests- £330 per person per week

A luxurious sailing boat situated in the serene landscape of Skiathos, Greece. Whether you are an experienced sailor looking to command this boat or you require your own captain, both are an option as you make lifelong memories on this incredible trip. 
For a villa fit for a large group of guests that is as deluxe as the options on Borrow A Boat, holiday goers will be spending significantly more. For example, Villa KK sleeps 10 and starts from £7200-£12000.
