Florida travel pros can now book luxurious international yacht and boat charters for their clients through Yachtico’s new portal within the Sabre online travel marketplace, the company announced recently from Boca Raton, Florida.
Representatives can select packages for their customers from among Yachtico’s 16,000 registered vessels. With recent maritime vacation industry trends showing that vacationers desire longer stays at sea than in the past, Yachtico offers weeklong packages.
“This will take boat charters to a different level, as agents who choose the Yachtico app can easily offer travelers a unique, on-the-water experience as an alternative to the on-land vacation,” Steffen Brunn, Yachtico’s founder and CEO, said.
Yachtico’s strongest advantage lies in its enormous inventory of pre-selected, professionally navigated yachts and boats. Vacation packages include options for hiring skippers and crews, and are available in a variety of price ranges to accommodate all budgets, enabling agents to craft the ideal vacation for each travel group on a year-round basis.
Outing prices start from $200 per person per week. Options range from $800 per week for a four-person canal boat or houseboat, and up to $65,000 a week for a fully crewed 87-foot motor yacht. Customers can search and explore boats and book online with no fees.
Founded in 2011, Yachtico recently relocated its global headquarters to Boca Raton, Florida, from Berlin, Germany in October with plans to create 50 new jobs within the next two years.
