Whether you’re a charter broker or yacht crew, if you are planning the activities for a yacht charter, it is imperative to ensure that your guests will have a remarkable and eventful time on board. For most yachts, this requires an abundance of fun activities on the water for guests to choose from. After all, the extraordinary experiences enjoyed on a yacht charter create the most long-lasting memories of your yacht, often ensuring repeat customers.
During our recent visits to our Ocean Premium bases in the sunny Caribbean and on our shipyard tours this winter, our team has been taking the opportunity to pick the minds of many yacht brokers, captains, and crew. Our teams have been asking them to help us to create a list of the Best Toys For Charters.
There are an impressive variety of options available for yachts to choose from, but let’s take a look at some of the favorites of charter guests.
Exceptionally suited for creating a surge of feel-good endorphins, is the exhilarating e-foil. Engineered to give the sensation of flying quietly and weightlessly above the water, modern e-foils are quickly rising to prominence as one of the best yacht toys, not only for their innovation but also for the distinctive ‘natural high’ they produce.
The dialogue about e-foils is, quite frankly, a rewarding one, if only because it is a topic that incites animated conversations and an incredible amount of enthusiasm from those who have experienced flying on them.
The clearest indicator is a matter of understanding basic, human psychology and reading body language effectively. With the mere mention of the word e-foil, a huge, genuine smile crosses the faces of those we ask, their voices elevate to an excited pitch, and their eyes sparkle with an almost electric gaze.
The charter yacht guests we engage with on this topic are all the opinions that e-foils undoubtedly belong in the top tier of the Best Toys For Charter list.
The ultimate toy for a genuine charter experience is a SEABOB. In a few, short years, this powerful and innovative watercraft has become a staple for charter yachts. Reaching impressive speeds of up to 20 km per hour, this toy offers a calm, cruising ride or a thrilling one for up to three hours.
It is perfect while snorkeling, exploring narrow crevices, or speeding through open water alike. Powered by a quiet, electric motor, it is ideal for use in tranquil coves and bays, allowing for hours of exploration without disturbing the delicate marine life. By running on battery power instead of gas or oil, Seabobs has quickly risen to the top of the Best Toys for Charter list, because of their eco-friendly characteristics.
By easily adjusting the depth settings, even experienced divers can enjoy the underwater in a new way.
Why are yacht slides still such a hit for charters?
Well, simply put, they offer a dramatic flair, as well as a unique way for yacht owners to entertain their guests. With an array of options to choose from, these inflatable water toys can be tailored to fit any size or style of yacht. They provide hours of entertainment for both adults and children alike, making them a must-have for family and party charters. A thrilling ride down a deep slide, ending in an exhilarating plunge into the refreshing ocean, is an anticipated sensation.
When considering the addition of a slide to your yacht’s charter toys, keep in mind its size and storage. Renting slides has become a very convenient solution for many yachts that lack adequate, permanent storage space to accommodate them.
JUNGLE JOE AND AQUA PARKS
Inflatable yacht water toys continue a steady, upward growth in popularity for exciting, water-based activities. They offer a unique experience while at anchor. With our Jungle Joe and Aqua Parks, one can be assured that the charter will be filled with thrilling and entertaining water sports.
Jungle Joe is a ‘Beast’ on water and an absolute favorite among yacht guests of all ages. This towering, climbing pyramid will get that adrenaline going with its physical challenges. It consists of multi-level terraces that guests can jump, slide or climb from. These different terraces create multiple interior and exterior climbing routes, so several guests can be accommodated at the same time.
The Jungle Joe can easily stand on its own, or be added to other inflatable water toys to create a customizable aqua park, with as many inflatable structures as you can imagine.
Here are just a few of the many items that can be added to make your yacht’s aqua park stand out:
