A fascinating blend of technology and a desire to honor nature and its resources is turning the “typical” charter yacht excursion on its head in new and delightful ways.

Here are five of the biggest private yacht trends currently taking place around the globe:

  1. The eco-friendly yacht, inviting the outside in and bringing travelers closer to the elements.
  2. Open concept design, reflecting ample open-air space and the opportunity for stunning views at every angle.
  3. Smart yachts. Just as a home can be enhanced with smart control of temperature, security, WiFi, and other functionality, the same is happening in luxury yachts.
  4. Unique yacht trends, extravagant and larger-than-life. You won’t believe what you can find on board!
  5. Finally, there are the supersize yachts playing host to an extended group of family or friends.

The private yacht charter of your choice can be customized in so many ways. The examples below are only a sampling of what exists in today’s yacht charters. If you have questions about which amenities, features, and other bonuses are available on board the type of vessel you prefer, NJ Charters can provide answers.

Monhegan Island Harbor

There is an island off the coast of Maine where time appears to stand still. Small, shingled 19th-century homes dot the otherwise undisturbed landscape. Rocky shores, wildflowers, and the Atlantic delight the soul. Monhegan Island attracts those who view life with an artist’s eye, as it has for centuries. Edward Hopper, George Bellows, Rockwell Kent, and others stayed and painted here. You can read more about them in this article.

Visitors come to paint, seek out rare birds, eat fresh lobster, and hike through serene forests. Monhegan Island invites people of all ages to unplug and focus on the sunset instead of their cell phones. One particularly lovely way to pay a visit is via a private charter yacht.

Cruising on Board a Charter Yacht into Rovinj, Croatia

Rovinj Old Town, Croatia

Rovinj Old Town, Croatia

Cruise into Rovinj Harbor on your charter yacht and enjoy a traditional fishing village on the Istrian Peninsula in northern Croatia where a copper statue of their Patron Saint, St. Euphemia points out to sea when the weather is good for fishing, and into town when weather is poor, and no fisherman should leave the harbor.  All locals abide by what their good St. Euphemia tells them and only leave the harbor to fish when the statue, perched on the top of the bell tower of the Church of St. Euphemia on the highest point of land in town, points out to sea.  And it is wise, when on a charter yacht, to take heed of St. Euphemia’s message as well as St. Euphemia is the Patron Saint of Rovinj after she in her sarcophagus floated into the harbor sometime in 900 A.D., some say from a spectral ship.
