Vacation chartering trends for 2023

Published on December 5th, 2022

While not a fan of Dream Yacht Charter, which has been rebranded as Dream Yacht Worldwide, we were interested in their observations for 2023:

Due to demand and industry research pointing to an increase in Marine tourism, Dream Yacht Worldwide will launch 150 new boats in the coming season of which 80% are catamarans. The company’s new catalogue of offerings will include Bali 4.4, Lagoon 51, and Excess 14 catamarans as well as the Bali Catsmart.

Anticipating an increased interest in onboard support, Dream Yacht Worldwide will continue to offer sea travelers the option of crew support including a variety of skipper and hostess offerings to support sailors and non-sailors of all skill levels.

Since 2018, the number of catamaran charters rented with skippers to assist with sailing has more than doubled (+133%) in select destinations like the Mediterranean.

During high season in the Mediterranean (June-September), more than one third of Dream Yacht Worldwide’s catamarans were rented with a skipper, which has been growing steadily over the past few years. In French Polynesia, 26% of year-round bookings were with a skipper in 2022; in the French Caribbean, 20% of bookings included a skipper option.
