May 11, 2018

Do you desire the finer things in life?

 
Whether you’ve recently won the lottery, inherited a fortune, or have just started feeling a hole burning in your pocket, there are endless ways to push the boat out on The Yacht Week. It doesn't get much more lavish than spending a week aboard a yacht, sailing on clear blue seas and island hopping like the rich and famous with your closest friends.
 

1. Sail on one of these

 

If you’re fortunate enough to have deep pockets then it goes without saying that you should book a completely outrageous premium plus yacht fit for royalty.

And we aren’t speaking in hyperbole when we say these yachts are the crème de la crème of the fleet. Here are a couple of examples for you to size up.

These bad boys vary in price depending on the dates and destination you choose.

2. Treat yourself to a Host for €650

 
A Host is the ultimate addition to take your week to the next level. The Yacht Week hosts are trained sea chefs who will treat you to splendiferous meals every day and keep your yacht pristine clean so you can sit back and relax for the week. You can add a Host through your booking profile.

On arrival, your host will venture out to stock all of the food shopping in line with their meal plan for the week (accompanied by a crew member).

Not only will your host make sure you're always well fed, serving up freshly prepared dishes morning, noon and night, they'll also go out of their way to ensure that you're having a fantastic time.

They know the islands like the back of their hands which means they're knowledgeable about local delicacies and which food markets to best source fresh produce from. They are also walking talking encyclopedias of restaurant recommendations, make use of their wisdom!

You can't put a price on this kind of culinary wizardry and best mate material.
 

3. Purchase a luxury food package for €990

 
For those moments when only a champagne breakfast will suffice, you've got to go lux.
The luxury package is designed with an effortless sailing holiday in mind. Food, drinks and all manner of other things you'd probably never think about needing are covered. You can add a luxury food package through your booking profile.

From bathroom essentials to portable cooler bags and Pringles. Think snacks galore. Once you've purchased your package, it will be delivered straight to your marina in time for your arrival, stocked with all the goods you could ever wish for and more. Sea for yourself.
 

4. Reserve your VIP tables

 
Imagine getting your own private table, where you are waited on hand and foot with your own personal bottles of top-of-the-line liquor and mixers. It may sound too good to be true but this service is offered at most of the fancy places we visit on The Yacht Week, for the likes of Fort George and Carpe Diem in Croatia & Nikki Beach in Greece. The right bottle service package can transform a fun evening out into a night you will never forget!

Book your venue tables in advance the week before your week. Your link will be sent via push notification in the Day 8 app when table bookings open. It's first come, first serve so you have to book fast!
 

5. Splurge on your swimwear

 

If you go on The Yacht Week and you don't post an Insta in your IT-swimsuit, did it really happen? Don't be stingy when it comes to this humble holiday essential honeys. A swimsuit or swim shorts may be small but they are also the backbone of your summer wardrobe. If you're going to lounge around on a yacht, lounge around in a Bond-worthy bikini. And thanks to online shopping and generous return policies, it's possible to indulge in luxury brands from afar too.

Here are a few of the hottest swimwear designers out there:
