Luxury Yacht Charter: What Is The Milk Run?

Posted on

Q:  I’ve read a few yachting articles that referred to superyachts seeking new cruising grounds as an alternative to the traditional “Milk Run.”  What is a milk run in yachting?      Amy S.

A:  Thank you for your question, Amy. Let’s start with a quick peek at the definition of milk run in an online dictionary.

 

“Milk Run” – Noun…A routine, uneventful journey.

In the world of megayacht rental vacations, there are two primary offerings that account for the bulk of the charter business:  Caribbean yacht charter vacations in the winter and spring, and Mediterranean yacht charter vacations in the summer and early fall.

The sky is blue with puffy clouds.  There is a white catamaran sailboat at anchor in the distance, just off center in the photograph.

WHAT DO CHARTER CLIENTS WANT?

Charter clients are like most other travelers – they want to “get away,” but most prefer to get to their intended destination quickly. 
For North Americans, this means a short flight to the balmy Caribbean to sail, cruise, and visit islands like St. Thomas and St Barts.
The same holds true for Europeans, who can take drive or take a train to seaport destinations like St. Tropez, Positano, or Monaco.

CROSS THE POND

Like any business, demand dictates the industry.  First, the owners of the megayachts instruct their crews to position in the Caribbean for winter/spring. Second, they “cross the pond.”   Third, they reposition in the south of France or Monaco for the summer season.
Thus, it is this routine, somewhat uneventful journey between the Caribbean and the Mediterranean that boaters refer to as the, “Milk Run.”

EXOTIC DESTINATIONS

Side notes:  A handful of yacht owners have recently made efforts to entice potential customers to break away from the traditional cruising grounds, and consider yachting holidays in more exotic locales.  Some of the new up and coming destinations include:
  • Australia yacht charter
  • Middle East yacht charter
  • Antarctic yacht charter
  • Thailand yacht charter

SURVEY REVEALS…

A recent survey confirms increasing popularity of Thailand. Respondents favor Thailand as an emerging destination for yachting vacations.

THAILAND AS YACHT CHARTER DESTINATION

The Tourism Authority of Thailand has announced a survey. This is by MasterCard Worldwide.  It names Thailand’s capital, Bangkok, as the third-most favorite global destination in 2012.

 

WHICH OTHER CITIES JOIN THE LIST?

According to the survey, Bangkok follows only London and Paris in the rankings and is expected to draw around 12.2 million visitors, who will spend about 19.2 million dollars this year.  Thailand was 4th in the rankings of tourist spending in 2011, with the record of 14.4 billion dollars, after first, the UK, second, the USA, and third, France.
