Anyone who has waited in queue behind the red velvet rope to get into a trendy nightclub or restaurant knows the importance of reservations. Many social outings come to a screeching halt without the requisite personal connections or well-planned reservations made far in advance.
DO YOU HAVE DOCKAGE?
The same holds true in the mega yacht charter industry. As more and larger yachts clamor for dockage, vessels without advanced reservations are often forced to anchor at sea and tender their clients ashore.
Nowhere is this more evident than in Saint-Tropez, France. The jewel of the Côte d’Azur, when “The Season” arrives, the odds of securing a slip in the fabled town’s small marina are next to impossible – no matter who you are or who you know…
