Funny enough, yes, yacht charters typically cast a spell on guests. They choose yachting as their favorite vacation. In addition, they repeat the vacation often!
As far as spelling? There are many uncommon terms used in the yacht charter industry. For instance, purser, bosun, and lazarette. But why do I need to spell them?
Yacht charter guests do not need to spell boating terms. Have your charter broker and your attorney handle and explain any contractual details and paperwork. It is your job to simply enjoy your vacation.
We understand. Many yacht charter guests simply desire education (as do we). Besides, some charter clients end up as superyacht owners. Subsequently, The Superyacht Experience™ is important to them from all aspects, including spelling.
Some items are spelled uniquely in different languages. For instance, salon vs saloon. Does it matter when chartering a yacht? No, not at all. If you are on a yacht, and your crew mentions a term you haven’t heard, simply ask for an explanation.
There is an oft-used term in yachting that relates to criminal incarceration. Yikes. Most brokerages continue to use the term, as it is most recognized and used in the industry. That term is “al fresco.” In yacht charter, it refers to any outside space. For example, al fresco (or alfresco) dining commonly refers to outdoor dining.
The actual definition of al fresco in Italian means, “in prison.” Over the years, the term has gained popularity in use for outdoor yachting areas or activities, so it is not frowned upon in the superyacht industry. Alas, times change. In addition, the millennial generation and Urban Dictionary for the term, al fresco, now mean to go without undergarments or to “go commando.”
That is up to you. If spelling and terminology haunt you or give you pause, then maybe yes. If you simply want to enjoy The Superyacht Experience™ and the wonderful magical spell that yachting creates, then it doesn’t matter what things are called — or how they are spelled! As the saying goes, “just don’t call me late for dinner!”

While questions may remain as to whether or not airport scanners pose a health risk to travelers, there’s good news for airline passengers uncomfortable with screeners viewing their naked image.
New software for screening passengers at U.S. airports will do away with naked images, according to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
After hundreds of complaints from travelers, the TSA began testing software for uses a generic body outline and highlights the area where any anomaly is detected during a full body scan. Now, as you prepare to board your flight, your body image will not appear in this new scanning software.
“We often hear our clients express their concerns about the body scanning process,” says Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters. “While we appreciate the importance of airport security, we are hopeful the new software will effectively address the privacy issues of our luxury yacht charter customers.”
Made by L-3 Communications, scanners at the 40 domestic airports that currently use the equipment will be upgraded over the next several months, the TSA said.
“This software upgrade enables us to continue providing a high level of security through advanced imaging technology screening, while improving the passenger experience at checkpoints,” said TSA Administrator John Pistole.
The agency also plans to test similar software later this year for the 247 backscatter scanners that are in 38 airports and made by OSI Systems Inc’s Rapiscan Systems unit.
Later this year, the TSA will unveil a pilot program that will allow some frequent fliers at four hub U.S. airports to go through expedited screening.
Now if we can just get airline food and service to be half as good as the meals and crew service found onboard mega yacht charter vessels…
