Today, with the advent of satellite networks and ultra-modern electronics, being unavailable by phone or email is next to impossible. Now, charterers can enjoy all of the amenities and luxuries of a yachting getaway, yet easily remain in touch with work and family. In fact, many yachts have better communication and office facilities than most homes.
"We see many of our clients plan some time each day to keep in touch with their businesses," says international charter mavenJana Sheeder of SailAway. "Whether anchored off Capri during a Mediterranean yacht charter or cruising up the Amazon, satellite communication systems allow clients to pick up an onboard phone and contact their offices back home in seconds. Coupled with well-appointed ensuite stateroom office space, our clients may be on a luxury vacation, but their yacht is well-equipped for conducting business and long-distance communications."
Vessels such as luxury motor yachtsSYCARA V and MARY JEAN II feature dedicated offices located in the master stateroom, complete with printer, fax, Skype, and full computer connectivity. Other yachts tuck a small workspace desk into a corner of the main salon or skylounge. Either way, even though you’re hard at work, you still have a wonderful view.
Customers used to spotty cellphone coverage at home often marvel at the clear reception made possible on yachts by state-of-the-art GSM (Global System for Mobile communications) systems.GSM service allows you to make private calls without having to rely on a fixed phone in a public area of the yacht, and it also gives you access to your mobile phone address book.
