Yacht-based Adventures

Few modes of travel feel freer than sailing. Glide wherever the wind takes you, where the only sounds are waves on the hull and ice in your drink. At the end of the day, moor in sheltered coves unreachable by any other means, or pull up to a dock in the middle of party central. Self-contained and independent, a sailboat frees you from the worries of both transport and accommodation, so you can choose to stay and explore, or move on with the next tide.
