At any age, a yacht charter is a luxurious and unforgettable way to see the world. That is why so many of our yacht charter clients are extended families returning time and time again, ranging in age from toddlers to seniors.

From Baby Boomers to Generation Z, the youngest of whom are just 4 years old, every single age group can benefit as they enjoy the amazing scenery and destinations. We have even had babies in baskets, perhaps one of the easiest age groups to have on board. Here is a quick list of the generations by name:

  • Baby Boomers: born between 1944 and 1964, ages 55 to 75
  • Gen X: born between 1965 – 1979, ages 40 to 54 
  • Gen Y/Millennials: born between 1980 and 1994, ages 25 to 39
  • Gen Z: born between 1995 and 2015, ages 4 to 24 

There is no other type of luxury family vacation which affords the same wide range of experiences while keeping loved ones together. And as we’ll illustrate below, that is a really good thing. If you’ve been hesitant to book a yacht charter, these are some great reasons to go for it.

Swimming, snorkeling, fishing, sunbathing on the beach—there are so many things to do! Some boats offer scuba, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, rafting, water-skiing, stand-up paddle boarding, and even yoga! During the days, you and your family can take part in your favorite activity or learn about a new one, or you can read a book and nap. On shore there are quiet beaches, villages to explore, and a lot of local shopping. Adults in the family can enjoy some cocktails at one of the bars on shore. Your private yacht charter will show you vistas and unspoiled beaches that can’t be seen from the shore, along with many remote places that resort staff doesn’t even know about. There are plenty of fun activities to take part in and create lasting memories that you and your family will never forget.
