Comfort and Convenience

Comfort and Convenience


Over the last few decades, yachts have been getting ever bigger and more comfortable. Purists may disagree – after all, most of the cruising pioneers decades ago made do with rather spartan vessels – but comfort is important:

The average age of cruisers keeps increasing: It is much more difficult today to take a few years out of a busy career than it used to be. Leaving jobs and family behind may simply not be feasible. Many have to wait till retirement until they can afford to go cruising.

  • With age we want more comfort; why make do with less than accustomed from home.
  • We also need more comfort – as stamina and strength decrease, injuries take much longer to heal and health issues become more frequent and severe.

A comfortable and convenient yacht takes the sting out of these facts and supports a cruising life for years longer than a more spartan would – or enables the cruising life in the first place: A partner who isn’t terribly keen on sailing will be much more inclined to come along and stay if the experience is pleasant and comfortable.
