The Private Yacht Charters industry is the focus of the latest episode to air from “Informed”, an educational series hosted by Rob Lowe. 

The business of chartering a private yacht is no longer a luxury that is only for the wealthy. This industry has grown into one that gives customers the option to rent a yacht by the hour, the day, or the week. These options have allowed for the less wealthy to be able to take a vacation and rent a yacht without breaking the bank. Although the world of mega yachts is still left to the mega wealthy, yachts of much smaller sizes are easily attainable for those on a budget. Many companies, especially in the Caribbean and Southeast United States, have yachts that can be charted for less than a thousand dollars a week. This business also extends into a market where a yacht can be chartered for events such as weddings or social gatherings for evening or day time cruises. Many times these companies will also offer staff for the yachts such as captains and stewards to make the experience even more enjoyable.

This insightful piece is sure to entertain and educate audiences across the country. “Informed”, hosted by Rob Lowe, is distributed to Public Television PBS Member stations.
