The memories from a family yacht vacation last a lifetime. But how long does it take to get to our favorite cruising destinations?
Whether flying commercial or private, it can be tedius. It can be a long, sometimes grueling endeavor to get to the Caribbean, for instance, if you are going for Easter or Spring break.
Is there an alternative closer to home – a destination that offers warm waters, plenty of sunshine, and a chance to reconnect with family and friends, away from the crowded tourist traps? The answer is, “Yes” and it’s less than an hour away from mainland USA – it’s the Bahamas.
I saw an article last week about the top baby names for 2017. The story went on to speculate, “…if you’re searching for a baby name in 2017, you’ve got a big, exciting decision to make. Whether you’re after something that’s trendy or traditional, it can be challenging to wade through the thousands of possible names for your future baby.”
I thought to myself, “What about boat names?” Surely, the proud new owner of a private luxury yacht charter vessel must experience similar excitement in deciding what to name his or her new floating palace.
Lo and behold, the Boat Owners Association of the United States (BoatUS), recently released their annual list of the Top Five Boat Names for 2017 [they actually list the top ten, but who cares about any top list after the first few winners].
For certain, each name reveals a little bit about the personality of the yacht’s owner. So, from trendy to traditional, here is this year’s Top Five list of names:
Note – there are soooo many luxury yacht charter vessels with this name, we can barely keep them straight! Four of them are currently listed on our site, including the popular Greek yacht charter catamaran SERENITY, and we have NINE yachts with this name in our charter database!
Do you have a favorite boat name, perhaps for your own boat, or a luxury yacht charter vessel you saw at sea? Share that name with us, and if there’s a short story about the name, we would love to hear it! Email us your cute boat name at email@example.com!
