  • Sports cruisers: These are boats less than 18 meters in length. These models are suitable one to two persons for relatively short day cruising.

Demand Outlook

The global yacht charter market valued at ~USD 15 billion in 2020 and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5% from 2020 to 2027 due to growing preference among travelers for luxury marine tourism and personalized services. Europe is the largest regional market with more than 40% share and is expected to continue leading during the forecast period as countries, such as Greece, Croatia, and Turkey are among the most popular tourist destinations. 24-69 meter yacht segment has the highest market share owing to factors such as availability of variants, which also includes a vessel having wind sailing capabilities that help save fuel and ensure traveling in favorable wind direction. Moreover, its low maintenance cost, shallow draft for water anchorages capability, and lower moorage cost makes it the most preferred choice for customers.

Cost Drivers

The major cost components of yacht charter services include the cost of crew members, food and drinks costs, fuel costs, dockage, communication costs, etc. These components together accounted for more than 80% of the overall cost of service. Other cost drivers include VAT and insurance costs.


The global yacht charter industry has been severely hit by the rapid spread of the COVID-19 across key markets in Europe and the Americas. However, whilst inquiries for new charters and second-hand sales have significantly reduced and travel restrictions in several countries made yacht operation difficult, most large yachts remain fully crewed and operational and, where possible, yachts continue to prepare for the 2022 season.
