Charter yachts are designed to give you maximum living space onboard which often doesn’t leave much space for personal luggage. Although there is a small amount of storage space in each cabin, you will have to share your personal space with some of the luggage or equipment you take with you.
Our top tip is to only take one soft bag per person (a duffel/hold-all is perfect) — hard suitcases are difficult to store and take up a lot of space. Just bring the essentials – if you can manage with just hand luggage, that will leave you with much more space onboard!
Most basic requirements (cooking equipment, first aid kit, bedding, safety equipment) are provided so you will only need clothes, toiletries and your camera if you’re bringing one.
