As a senior charter manager and group director with Ocean Independence. Daphne D’Offay (far right) oversees the charter marketing operations for the company’s American-managed fleet. Due to the pandemic, D’Offay and her colleagues have seen a meteoric-like rise in inquiries for yacht charter for first-timers. Even we at MegayachtNews.com have seen a marked increase in interest, due to the pandemic and even the Below Deck series of articles we’ve published. She has keen insight into how first-time yacht-charter guests are discovering this extraordinary vacation option, and how yacht charter overall has skyrocketed in popularity over the past two years.

- what yacht charter is, and what makes it such an extraordinary vacation option
- which destinations are perfect for first-time yacht charter guests
