Making plans hasn’t been easy this year. Y.CO wants to change that. That’s why the company is offering their Clients the chance to secure peak dates for summer 2021 on some of the most sought-after charter yachts in the world by paying a reduced, refundable deposit.
Booking through Y.CO, clients can secure peak summer dates on the most popular charter yachts by paying a smaller deposit (25% rather than the standard 50%). This deposit is also entirely refundable should they wish to cancel for any reason before 1 March 2021. After this date, the charter is still protected by a MYBA (Mediterranean Yacht Brokers’ Association) Addendum, meaning that the client is still protected should they be forced to cancel or change the charter for reasons associated with Covid-19.
Y.CO is already seeing a lot of demand for yacht charter in 2021, with clients who had held off travel in 2020 now looking at their options for 2021. Through offering this flexible booking policy, the company hopes to allow their clients the freedom to make plans for 2021 and the security of securing the most sought-after dates and yachts, without having to worry about the changing world situation.
Charlie Birkett, Y.CO co-founder and CEO comments: “We are delighted to be able to offer both our charter clients and our yacht owners a more flexible approach to yacht charter in the present climate. As 2020 draws to a close, we are seeing a lot of pent up demand from people who held off booking travel this year and now want to work with us to plan something amazing to look forward to for next year. It’s clear that clients are viewing yachting as a much freer alternative to shore-based travel due to their natural isolation, and many clients are hoping to bring their families back together and spend time together in a safe environment. Through offering this flexible booking policy, we hope we will make it easier for both our clients and our charter yacht owners to plan ahead and make the most of next summer with better peace of mind.”
Some of the most well-known charter yachts in the world are offering the new, flexible terms. Among them is brand new Amels yacht GALENE, which was launched to great acclaim earlier this year, 56m Perini Navi sailing yacht PANTHALASSA, which offers a light-infused, modern interior by Foster and Partners, 60m SAMURAI, which offers an impressive water-level gym and huge fold down swim platform as part of her beach club offering, and 55m DRIFTWOOD, which, with a high-octane collection of toys and adventurous crew, is perfect for families looking to explore further off the beaten-path next year.
