If you would like the holiday of a lifetime and you’re stuck for ideas, how about cruising tropical waters on a luxury yacht? While you might be thinking that is reserved for the rich and famous, there are yacht brokers where you can charter a luxury crewed yacht for an amazing holiday. Many luxury yacht owners make their boat work when not in use, handing the yacht to the management company who market the vessel and crew for recreation, therefore you can charter such a vessel, complete with a full crew.
