9 Tips to Make the Most Out of Your Luxury Yacht Vacation




You’re headed off to sail the high seas on a luxury yacht. Whether you’re the proud owner of a stunning vessel or you’re chartering a yacht for the first time, you’re eager to make this vacation one to remember. You’ve already planned long days of swimming in the ocean until nightfall, staring at the stars. Your calendar is marked for that big surfing day.

What else can you do to upgrade your trip?

Bringing the right supplies on board guarantees you’ll have everything you need to enjoy yourself fully. Below are our top nine tips to make the most out of your luxury yacht vacation.

#1 Pop Champagne

What’s the best way to celebrate your seafaring adventure? Champagne, of course! Bring at least one bottle of your favorite bubbly—or consider buying a whole case. There’s nothing quite like waking up to the sunrise with a mimosa in hand.

Not a champagne drinker? As an alternative, buy a bottle (or two) of plastic-free Black Label whiskey and start your journey out on a sophisticated, sustainable foot.


#2 Bring CBD On-Board

You can only drink so much champagne before a hangover makes you seasick. Are you looking for other ways to relax and enjoy your time?

CBD can help to enhance the mood of your trip. It’s also known for its ability to:

  • Reduce nausea
  • Help you get a good night’s sleep
  • Increase immunity
  • Soothe sore muscles.

Overall, CBD can help with any little irritation that pops up during your trip. CBDfx is known for their gummies—a quick, tasty way to enjoy all of CBD’s benefits.

#3 Take Care of Your Skin

At sea, your skin is exposed to some harsh elements, from potentially damaging UV rays to wind and salt.

Take good care of your skin, so you look good for the gram (and in the future!):

  • Apply sunscreen to your face and body daily
  • Spritz your skin with a post-sun serum after a long day on the deck
  • Use nourishing moisturizers to keep skin hydrated.

Since you’re at sea, you don’t want to contribute to ocean pollution with artificial products. Luxury skincare can be green, too!


#4 Buy a New Swimsuit

Let’s be honest—you may want to post a couple of pictures to incite your followers’ FOMO.

Buy a swimsuit that makes you feel confident.

Hackwith Design is known for bespoke swimwear. It’s also made of sustainable materials. Invest in a new suit (or two!) that you can enjoy on your vacation and for years to come.


#5 Bring Nourishing Snacks

You may have a chef on board. However, you’re still likely to get hungry between meals. Make sure your fridge and pantry are fully stocked with anything you need to nurture yourself:

  • Fresh fruit
  • Protein bars
  • Nut butters
  • Bread or crackers.

#6 Snorkel

Swimming is fun, but snorkeling allows you to connect more deeply with the natural world just beneath the ocean surface. Buy a new set of snorkels for the whole family so that you can take a closer look at the coral reefs and coastlines you’ll encounter along the way.

#7 Catch Up on Cinema

After a full day of outdoor activities, you’ll need a way to stay entertained at night. Enjoy the projector or HDTV room by catching up on contemporary and classic films.

Subscribe to the Criterion Collection for a fully stocked library of the best in world cinema.


#8 Bring Games

Classic board games are another great way to keep the whole family entertained on long nights or stormy days.

Some of our favorites include:

  • Battleship
  • Scattergories
  • Settlers of Catan
  • Clue
  • Rummikub.

A deck of cards can come in handy, too.


#9 Resurrect Old Passions

Is there something you don’t have time for in your daily life? Whether it’s making pancakes for your kids, writing in your journal, or enjoying a soothing yoga practice, now is the time to reconnect with your long-lost hobby.

With plenty of space on board, it should be easy to find a private nook where you can make time for yourself. Just be sure to bring any supplies you need, since there’s no Amazon on board!

Savor Every Minute

Let’s be real—anything you do aboard your luxury yacht will be enjoyable. The only way you can go wrong is by giving into old habits and spending your days scrolling through your inbox and social media feeds.

Use your trip as an escape from your everyday routine. With these nine ideas, it should be easy to evade boredom and fully enjoy your vacation. Happy sailing!
