Eco-Conscious Charters: Our 5 Top Tips For New Boat Charter Clients

More and more boat charter clients are prioritizing sustainability and reducing their environmental footprint. At Boatbookings, we value this shift and want to guide new clients toward a better, more responsible boat charter for their next vacation. 

We have put together our top 5 tips for new boat charter clients: 

1. Choose a Greener Boat 

Within the Boatbookings fleet, there is an extensive range of boats to choose from. Whether you opt for a crewed charter catamaran, motor yacht, or sailing yacht. Or, if you want to go it alone, we also have bareboat yachts for charter, both motor and sail. It is more important than ever to choose a greener yacht in today’s world, which is why we work hard to offer a broader fleet of greener boats, such as our selection of greener crewed catamarans

2. Select Better Preferences 

While yachts are well-stocked for your vacation, consider opting for things that reduce your impact. For example, you can request reef-safe sunscreen, refillable water bottles, and eco-friendly toiletries. Selecting preferences will also ensure the crew knows exactly what you require for your trip, making it an unforgettable experience. 

3. Pick A Quieter Destination 

There are so many places worldwide you can explore this summer by boat. Our Boatbookings team can help you plan your itinerary and choose the best places to visit. The Mediterranean is one of our favorite spots, from the French Riviera to Greece. Although some of these hotspots are at risk of over-tourism, selecting a quieter, more off-the-tourist track destination will help you get away from overcrowded destinations. We can also advise you on the local marine conservation initiatives in these areas to get involved in while you are there.

4. Offset Your Emissions 

Despite efforts to reduce environmental impacts, most yacht charters will still release carbon emissions. You can help counteract this by purchasing carbon offsets that invest in clean energy projects and other activities that remove greenhouse gasses from the atmosphere. Our carbon offset calculator can help you accurately assess the yacht’s footprint throughout your vacation. 

5. Respect Marine Life

A huge advantage to a boat charter is the opportunity to observe diverse marine species. However, it is vital to do so responsibly, avoid disturbing or feeding wildlife, and never remove anything from the ocean. 

Following these tips and using simple eco-conscious practices means you and future charter clients can experience the joy of a boat charter while minimizing the impact on our fragile ocean ecosystems. Contact one of the Boatbookings team to find out more about our greener crewed charter catamarans
