1. Decide on your guest list for the yacht charter in Dubai

 
Your guest list is one of the most important aspects when selecting a yacht for rent in Dubai. Who will come onboard? 
 
How many guests will you have: is it going to be an intimate cruise or a large event gathering? This will enable our executives to recommend you the most suitable yacht in terms of length.
 
Besides, it is important to know what your guests’ preferences are: are they more laid back and prefer sunbathing while having delicious cocktails or are they more active and would like to join the fitness room or are more into water sports?
 
After answering these questions, our Dubai yacht charter executives can point out which luxury yacht from our fleet would be the most appropriate for you and your guests so that everybody onboard has a marvelous time while cruising with us.
 

2. What is your budget?

 
Another important tip on how to select a yacht for rent in Dubai is to establish your budget.
 
Depending on the finances which are available for the yacht charter, our executives can give you an idea of the type of yachts which fit your budget and present you with the options available onboard.
 
There are certain things which are complimentary with our yacht charter in Dubai, such as fresh towels, water, and refreshments, however, there are others which will imply additional costs, depending on the type of event you wish to organize with us.
 

3. The style of the yacht for rent in Dubai

 
The style of the yacht for rent in Dubai very much depends on the type of event you wish to organize onboard.
 
For example, if you are going to have a family gathering where children will come as well, our representatives will present you with the yachts from our fleet which have the most safety features.
 
Or, for a party with numerous guests, we will advise you to choose a yacht with numerous onboard amenities, including a swimming pool, jacuzzi, and seating capabilities and which is spacious inside and, on the outside, as well.
 

4. Choose between a crewed yacht or a bareboat yacht

 
Even if this is specialized terminology in yacht chartering, you should know that you can choose between renting a crewed yacht, which implies having a captain and additional crew on the yacht, or a bareboat which means having the whole yacht for yourself.
 
The main differences between these two types of yachts are:
 
  •           having a crewed yacht will mean a safer trip, as the captain will handle all the aspects of manning the boat;
  •           the bareboat will offer the unique sensation of owning a vessel and the chance to impress your friends;
  •           it is recommended to rent a bareboat yacht only if you have previous experience in handling boats;
  •           renting a crewed yacht can have a significant impact on the final costs of your trip.
 
Our agents in Dubai can make the right recommendations as soon as you explain them your expectations from the yacht rental services you need.
 

 5. The type of yacht is very important

 
When deciding to rent a yacht in Dubai, please keep in mind that there are 4 main types of pleasure boats which can be used. These are:
 
  •           sailing yachts are small pleasure boats which cannot accommodate a large number of passengers, therefore it is suitable for small gatherings;
  •           catamarans are mid-size yachts with large decks and are perfect for family reunions or vacations;
  •           motor yachts which are speedboats equipped with the latest technology and amenities while being budget-friendly;
  •           mega yachts which are a great option for corporate parties thanks to the high-end luxury amenities.
  •           classic yachts are often the choice of our clients as they are equipped with everything one needs, no matter the purpose of the rental;
  •           gullet yachts which are the perfect combination between sail and engine pleasure vessels.

Renting a yacht in Dubai can be a great opportunity to relax and unwind with your loved ones, however, proper counseling is advised in order to ensure you have made the proper choice.
 

6. Choose a custom yacht for rent in Dubai


If it hard for you to decide on a specific yacht, you should definitely consider a custom yacht. What does that imply? Simply put, you will be able to decide what you want and do not want to have on the vessel you rent. There are several aspects you can consider, such as the number of crew members and whether additional personnel – chef, bartender, entertainer – is required. You will be able to do that once you decide if you want to rent the yacht for a special occasion or for a simple vacation. This is because the equipment and capacity of the yacht will definitely impact the type of yacht charter you need.

We can help you with customized yacht charter offers, which can include assistance in configuring the yacht as requested, a meeting in which you can see what we have available, organization of various parties and events and even contacting specialists in specific fields to comply with your requests.
 

Comfort – one of the most important tips on renting a yacht in Dubai


One of the greatest tips our yacht charter specialists in Dubai can give you is to consider your comfort and that of your guests. For this purpose, we can accommodate you with a superyacht which does not only have the necessary amenities for you to enjoy a vacation or a short trip but will spoil you and your guests in luxury, as superyachts are not only about size but also about luxury.
Comfort when renting a yacht also implies having children on board. Depending on their age, these might have special needs, this is why you should consider their comfort when renting a yacht in Dubai.

Another aspect you should consider, and which has to do with your comfort, is the facilities offered by the yacht for rent. The good news is that most of our yachts for rent in Dubai have many facilities on board, and among these, we can mention large and spacious rooms which can be used for conferences, large family events, such as weddings, sundecks, and even playgrounds or special amenities for water sports. Most of the superyachts and mega yachts for rent also have swimming pools.
 

Requirements when renting a yacht in Dubai


While comfort and having a good time should always be on your mind when considering renting a yacht in Dubai, there are also other mandatory aspects you should consider before embarking on a yachting adventure in Dubai. Among these, purchasing insurance is a must.

Another mandatory aspect to think of is to bring appropriate clothing with you. Often, people get so excited about going on the sea that they forget they need proper sun protection and clothing, so we would like to remind you about this important aspect.

If you are a foreign citizen coming for a vacation, make sure you carry your passport all the time.
