Regardless if you plan to cruise overnight, cruise to a far-off destination, or simply a long weekend exploring the islands, one of the Nomad Yachts series by Gulf Craft, one of the best luxury yacht builders worldwide, is surely one of the best options.
Going to some serious long-distance yachting is many people’s dream, but it is a big challenge to make a journey like this. It is highly important to be well prepared and really know your stuff. The following tips are designed to give you a good start.
CHOOSE THE RIGHT YACHT
Long distance yachting is far from taking short trips along the coast. You surely need a yacht that can handle rough water and that is comfortable enough to be your home for at least weeks or months, as well as having room to store your supplies. It is also important to keep in mind that the yacht needs to have a manageable size for your crew, but not too large to get into the ports you plan to visit. Other important features to prioritize include a sheltered watch keeping position, good engine room access and an autopilot you can rely on a time when conditions are good enough to allow you a break.
Fortunately, long range motor yachts under the Nomad Yachts brand have the ability to undertake long-range cruises while guests can enjoy travel with comfort and luxury.
It is quite impossible to list down all the things you might need, but you should start by thinking about repair kits (for both the yacht and people) and also make sure you have sufficient engineering and electrical spare parts. You will also need good tools for every eventuality as well as suitable containers to keep everything dry and in good condition. With all the equipment needed in a long distance yachting, it is important to have enough storage to store all these, and that is just of the many features what Nomad Yachts.
Most of the time, a long distance yacht trip takes you across different territorial waters. Therefore, you will need to plan ahead to work out where it is and it is not a good idea to go, and where you’ll need a visa. This is a good stage at which to think about your insurance policy and related documents too.
