Imagine white beaches in the shade of coconut palms, secluded coves or wild islands growing straight from crystal clear turquoise water.
Who among us has not dreamed of running away from the city bustle, for example, to the sea on a yacht, where everyday problems will not get you, and enjoy the cry of seagulls, the gentle whisper of waves overboard. After all, it’s not without reason that many business people prefer all kinds of recreation, from which they return completely different people - energetic and cheerful.

Well, if you are a Formula 1 Grand Prix fan or have seen the Cannes Film Festival only on TV, then you can easily admire both events traditionally held in Monaco and France in May, right from the ship.
Contrary to the myth that renting a yacht or a sailboat is an expensive pleasure, it is still affordable for those who can afford a tourist trip abroad.
The advantages of sea travel under its own roof are obvious: the living conditions on the yacht are in no way inferior to the hotel ones. And what about the opportunity to choose - to stay for a long time in a favorite place or, on the contrary, immediately move further, penetrating into inaccessible places for the overland tourist.

You can rent a boat with or without a skipper. Each option has its pros and cons. So, renting a yacht with a skipper, you can not worry about your sailing skills.

On small yachts, as a rule, catering lies on the tourists themselves (unless, of course, a cook is invited to the yacht). This is usually not a problem, since all yachts have kitchen equipment. Cooked breakfast and a light lunch (sandwiches, salads) - on the shoulder almost anyone. The main food - in the evening on the beach in the coastal restaurant. On board the mega luxury yachts there is always a chef.

The sailing range on such a yacht is limited only by your imagination. If you have enough time and fuel costs do not confuse you, then you can even round the world around!
