The latest trends in superyacht industry
There has recently been an enormous increase in the size and density of private yachts.
SAS Marine Services was founded on a desire to make the superyachts industry more accessible than ever, not just for those looking to buy or charter a luxury yacht. Making available the most recent yachts for sale in the world is therefore only one aspect of the work our forward-thinking team of experts specialises in.
Our brokerage team visits hundreds of yachts every year, maintaining regular contact with thousand yacht owners. This allows us to provide you with some of the latest trends in the boat brokerage industry.
All-inclusive yachts with fully-fledged crew are perfect for family trips, yet groups of couples are becoming an ever more popular choice, allowing customers to split the cost of larger, luxurious vessels.
The same principle can be applied to bareboat charters: here people are opting for floating palaces alike. There has been a shift from a focus on boat performance to greater considerations of size and comfort. Patrons are more willing to spend extra money and opt for a larger superyacht for a number of couples, strengthening this high-end market.
As technology advances and people accustom themselves to luxurious living, it was only a matter of time for the superyacht industry to catch up to their client’s desires.
Not only does one have to add autopilot, chart plotters and wind gadgets; technologies like Wi-Fi, cellular connection quotas and an array of videogame platforms is also becoming the norm.
This was accompanied by a growing customer preference for technology passenger yachts and a constant redefinition of the design and purpose of relatively traditional boats.
A common theme between both types is the increase in water toys like stand-up paddleboards and blow-up slides on motor yachts. Beach-inspired designs – complete with umbrella, lounge and bar – is also another novelty that’s on a steady rise.
Simple health cuisine
Multiple course meals with complex food are exquisite yet do not go down as well with some children. Accordingly, some charter guests prefer simpler food that is fancy enough for adults yet just right for the kids.
Fresh produce and dietary requirements such as gluten free menus are being increasingly asked for and hence catered for by most on-board chefs.
