Ocean Independence - The Ultimate Yachting Lifestyle
Going one step beyond charter to yacht purchase is the ultimate lifestyle choice, with ownership delivering the greatest of rewards and providing the freedom to create unique memories with loved ones. It can certainly be hard to decide which is the perfect yacht when viewing the variety on offer – for some choosing between motor or sail can be straightforward, for others it is a more difficult decision.
Synonymous with speed and power, motor yachts are frequently what first comes to mind for many when visualizing a superyacht. Sleek and stylish, without the restriction of sails and rigging, motor yachts often offer spacious living accommodation. Depending on the size, motor yachts also have the capacity to house a large range of extensive amenities such as beach clubs, gyms and elevators. A great option for welcoming friends and family on board, motor yachts offer roomy staterooms with flexible layouts plus a selection of deck areas. Due to their elevated level from the water, motor yachts often deliver a drier sailing experience, with a smoothness aided by stabilizers. Able to explore locations within a quicker time frame without reliance on wind, there is also the addition to store tenders and water toys. For unlimited world cruising, and those seeking adventure, motor yachts certainly fit the bill.
Liberating and invigorating, with the wind in your hair and salt spray on your face, the romance and exhilaration of sailing yachts is magical. Many sailing yachts today offer surprisingly expansive accommodation and open plan layouts plus the general lack of engine noise makes for the ultimate sense of peace and privacy. Reliance on wind power can sometimes bring logistical challenges, which is where advanced planning for all voyages is recommended. Sailing yachts generally offer good, if slightly more practical, amenities and water toys, whilst certainly featuring, tend to be less extensive than on a motor yacht due to storage limitations. Handling rigging and sails can be physically demanding and time consuming, so sailing yachts often require a more specialized crew. Many feature a shallow draft, allowing access into more remote bays for an enhanced up-close experience. One big draw of buying a sailing yacht is being part of the sailing “family” to experience regattas and other traditional yachting events.
Falling somewhere in between the motor sailer is the perfect combination for some – effectively 100% sailing and 100% motor yacht, able to perform to uncompromising standards for either purpose. Offering the sheer fun of sailing with the efficiency of motor propulsion plus often the bonus of roll reduction for a smoother ride, motor sailers are a highly attractive option for some. Enjoy the simplicity and silence of using sails with the peace of mind that essential mechanical assistance is always available if the wind is not in your favor. Many of these yachts also feature great outdoor space, large indoor areas and state-of-the-art amenities that could rival any motor yacht of a similar size.
