I just returned from Fort Lauderdale where they were getting ready to host the annual boat show there. Some of the yachts outside my hotel window were so incredible that I ended up Googling their names to find out who owned them and how much they cost to charter. They were way out of my league.
However, there are boats out there that aren’t out of my league, and one place to find them is Yachtico. Yachtico connects vacationers to the largest collection of professionally operated boat charters for week-long vacations. They boast 15,000 boats worldwide, offering vacationers affordable and luxury choices in every season. What’s great is that you can search and explore boats and book online with no fees.
Week-long itineraries/charters range from $800/week for a four-person canalboat/houseboat to $65,000/week for a crewed, 87-foot motor yacht. Yachtico’s inventory is aggregated from partners around the world and consists only of professionally operated boats, each with photos, real-time availability and full insurance coverage.
Here are a couple samples of what’s offered in their top 2015 fall/winter yachting destinations:
“The Turkish coast is a simple sailing area. Navigationally, there are no challenges for sailors. The waters are protected, the visibility is good and the distances between the bays are small. Inexperienced yacht charter crews will find this district no problem as it is easy to navigate and well protected.” Prices quoted were researched for November 19-26, 2015.
- $1,507.61 for a Bavaria 36 Cruiser for 7 days, sleeps 6

In the US Virgin Islands
“With secluded beaches, pristine colorful coral, lush forests and gorgeous islands to charter between, it is no wonder that the U.S. Virgin Islands is one of the most beloved destinations for Yachtico travelers. Experience the cool blue water and relaxation that only Yachtico can provide with these luxury deals.” Prices quoted were researched for trips December 3-10, 2015.
