High-Seas Luxury: Charter Yachts
From the Print Edition:
maduro issue, Winter 93/94
(continued from page 3)
When packing for a vacation in tropical climates, stuff your usual one-week bag, then toss out half of it. Unless you intend to be terribly formal, you will need little clothing. Softsided suitcases are preferred for stowage reasons. As big as a yacht may be, for large parties, stowage can be at a premium, particularly on sailboats.
You will need a large amount of traveler's checks, principally to cover the crew's tip. The tip is paid to the captain at the end of the voyage, and he distributes it. Since banking is difficult for a charter crew, cash or traveler's checks are a must. A Selection of Yacht Brokers
