When do you prefer your privacy, words first come to mind are luxury and comfort. Because you cannot enjoy comfort and luxury as you like when you share something with someone. This would be enjoyable but can be irritating sometimes. So, on a charter vacation, chartering a cabin would not be reasonable at all times.
Actually, privacy is in direct proportion to luxury. Even the rhyme between two words cannot be overlooked. A luxuriously furnished yacht cannot be chartered without a crew. But this is a plus for your vacation. You do not need to worry about anything. Captain, cook, sailor and hostess will take care of everything on board. However, you still can change everything up to your standards as this is your privacy. You can choose your itinerary, menus and personal care products. But never forget to listen to your captain about the sea especially in bad weather. For general condition of the yacht, he is the most experienced one.
Such luxurious yachts are more like floating houses. They can offer you anything that you can find in a house. Actually, you can find more. You do not want your route to come to an end.
Again for privacy, you do not need to worry about crew. Their cabins are totally separated from yours which means that you will not see them unless you want it so.
Special comfort and deluxe treatment just for you. Say hello to your new home.
LIFE ON BOARD

During your visits to these destinations, the last anchor of the day will be for an overnight stay. This could either be a bay or an harbour.
The motor engine is used frequently to stay ahead of the route, however from time to time, depending on the weather conditions, the crew will be more than happy to use sails aswel.
