Yacht Charters Offer Uniquely Safe Travel

We all want to travel.  We all need to feel safe.  This coming winter may pose some obstacles. According to a recent McKinsey report on airplane travel, travelers encounter 700 touch points with commercial air travel compared to 30-40 touchpoints in private plane charters. Of course, not everyone can spring for “flying private tail”, so for most of our clients, we suggest that yacht charters are uniquely safe and recommend Park & Embark travel in the USA for this winter’s and next summer’s getaway.

Executive Pursuits: Beat the blizzards in Boston by riding a yacht in Bangkok

Just because the boating season ends in New England, doesn’t mean you have to wait until next spring for the joys of cruising.
I just returned from the” Land of Smiles” — Thailand — a bit jet-lagged, but fully immersed in its approachable culture.
I have now experienced the yachting scene out of Phuket on the Andaman Sea first-hand. It was a “work”-related junket that we call a “fam trip,” or “familiarization trip,” which segues into the end of the New England boating season and how to keep summer alive.
