Dream Yacht Charter Takes the Top Spot as the World’s Largest Yacht Charter Operator

Published: Thursday, December 21, 2017

Dream Yacht Charter has grown to become the largest yacht charter company in the world, with a fleet of 987 boats across the most destinations with 47 bases.

The company started out with just six boats operating from the Seychelles seventeen years ago, and now thousands of customers are turning dreams into reality with all-inclusive sailing experiences or navigating new destinations while at the helm.

Dream Yacht Charter founder, Loic Bonnet, said: “This is such an achievement as we started out small with some pretty big ideas! We are expecting our growth to continue with additions to our fleet for next year.

“We’re proud to be known for our pioneering approach, opening up new cruising grounds, such as Cuba and New Caledonia, and making sailing accessible to non-sailors through new experiences, such as booking cabins on crewed charters.”

This year has been unprecedented for the yacht charter industry following the severity of the hurricane season in the Caribbean.

Loic added: “The reason we’ve been able to return quickly to the Caribbean is because of the size of our fleet and our worldwide network. It was great to see the first charters going out from the British Virgin Islands and St. Martin earlier last month.”
