The pendulum, however, seems to be swinging as more clients express interest in luxury sailing charter holidays.
"I believe we are witnessing a shift in our sense of priorities when it comes to the world around us," says Jana Sheeder, President of SailAway, an international yacht rental agency. "The focus on sustainable lifestyles goes beyond how we live at home. Many travelers feel compelled to seek out an eco-friendly vacation, and sailboats are the perfect alternative to fossil-fuel powered motoryachts."
But what about luxury and comfort? For years, sailboats were considered small and cramped, with far fewer amenities than their power-driven counterparts. "That’s all in the past," says Sheeder. "Advances in technology have come a long way. Naval architects have found ways to add upscale amenities to sailboats without compromising the yacht’s performance capabilities."
Sail yacht KOKOMOis indicative of this direction. The 58 meter sailboat reflects new heights of excellence in terms of design, technology, engineering, performance, and quality.
1. Sailboats offer you the chance to experience and enjoy the journey as much as the destination.
2. Sailing yachts are more environmentally-responsible ("green") than motor yachts.
3. Sailboats offer greater fuel economy and less fuel consumption than motor yachts.
4. Sailboats can offer a more tranquil, relaxing experience than a cruise on a motor yacht.
