One movie that probably doesn't get shown much on cruises or yachts is Titanic. However, going on a cruise or even chartering your own boat rarely ends in such a tragedy. Yacht chartering has become one of the most popular and safest vacation activities.
Once thought to be an activity reserved for the rich and famous, people of all social classes and income tax brackets are now renting sailboats and traveling to various coastal or island destinations. Dipping as low as $1,000/week, yacht charters have become a vacation activity that everyone can enjoy.
If you want to skipper a boat yourself, there are many options for that. If you want to have a skipper serve as a sort of chaperone for your voyage so you can just relax and enjoy the view, there are certainly options for that, too. There are also options for renting a crewed charter.
So whether you want to hire a Solent yacht charter and spend a week or more island hopping the historic Solent, or you just want to take a quick weekend trip, there are plenty of options awaiting you in the world of yachting.
