Even as we all work to solve today’s personal and world challenges, the Spring season brings renewed warmth to our Northern latitudes and a view to bright ways ahead. Here in our homeport in New England, the recent uptick in yacht charters and yacht sales have provided flashes of light to brighten the summer. Alongside our regular repeat clients, we have welcomed many new clients, people who had previously never thought of chartering a yacht and have now experienced the holiday of a lifetime. Here are a few examples:
British Virgin Island borders are open after closing due to Covid-19. Inbound air services began on December 1, 2020. We monitor the BVI government Facebook page for the latest Covid information for travelers.
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.
