But why just let it be a dream?
It is definitely possible when you book through a yacht accommodation Singapore charter provider. Yachts are actually very easy to rent and can be a fantastic way to enjoy a weekend or add some adventure to your holiday vacation in Singapore. You can charter for a day or for an entire week and enjoy a long cruise. It is really all about what you want – as good yacht charter providers will strive to accommodate any individual’s needs.
About Yacht Accommodation
If you have never booked a charter yacht in Singapore (or anywhere before) there are a few things that you need to know. We have included all of the important details and facts so that you can make an informed decision when planning your Singapore yacht vacation.
Types of Yacht
There are mainly two types of yachts that customers can choose for yacht accommodation: sailing and motorised. Motorised yachts tend to be the favourite because they are like hotels that you drive on the water. With all of the accommodations and amenities you would expect in a high class hotel room, motor yachts are for vacationers who want to take it easy and enjoy a simple, relaxing time on the water. These yachts have beds and bathrooms on them so you can stay on the water for days at a time. More importantly, they are more reliable than sailing yachts as they are not affected by weather and can cruise more readily and faster to desired destinations.
Sail yachts, can also be extremely luxurious but they do come with certain quirks. For instance, when the wind is not cooperating, the sail style yacht may move unpredictably and be a challenge to control. Sudden changes in weather can dramatically impact your trip’s itinerary. Hence most cliental prefer the motor yacht to sail yacht. But sail yachts have their own advantages. They tend to be quieter during sail and can cruise for longer distance without stopover for fuel top up. Hence they are suitable for long voyage. Ultimately it is up to the client’s choice and preference.
Experience of Crew
In addition to the type of yacht you want to rent, you also want to think about the other important details of your trip. Charter yachts require that you have experienced crews accompany you to assist in driving the yacht and make sure that you and your guests are comfortable. The experience that you have on your trip can greatly be impacted by the quality of the crews. You want to make sure that you have the right qualified professionals accompanying you who understand Singapore’s marine regulations well and surrounding water conditions so that you can have a peace of mind throughout the vacation. You will also want someone who is friendly enough to point out the different destinations and views along the way so that you can have better understanding of the places of visits.
Food and Other Necessities
These also need to be taken into consideration and what you actually need to bring will vary depending on things like:
• The length of your trip
• Your personal preferences
• The number of people coming on your trip
• Your travel itinerary (where you plan to go)
• As well as the age and preference of your guests
A good yacht charter can stock your ship with everything that you need and will gladly accommodate special requests. If there are any special needs that have to be met, your charter should be able to take care of these for you so that you are fully satisfied.

Our Happy Customers
I celebrated my 30th Birthday through Singapore Yacht Charter and it was one of the best days I've had in Singapore. Sam was incredibly helpful and accommodating to all my requests on the lead up to the day of the trip and the staff on-board were fantastic and friendly. I can't recommend them highly enough
We engaged Singapore Yacht Charter for our documentary filming about Singapore Maritime coming on ChannelNewsAsia in 2018. We used the HomeAway boat as our crew boat to follow the presenter's yacht. I was very impressed with the captain's knowledge of the sea. He brought us to various points out in the sea where we can get good aerial shots of Singapore Skyline; The Craft was quick and comfortable too. Overall we had, a fulfilling day at work. Thank you, guys!
It was great, all my family enjoyed it. Nice crew, perfect weather, all good!
