DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 9, 2023--

The “Yacht Charter Market Size, Market Share, Application Analysis, Regional Outlook, Growth Trends, Key Players, Competitive Strategies and Forecasts, 2022 To 2030” report has been added to’s offering.

The global Yacht charter market was valued at US$ 16.49 Bn in 2021 witnessing a steady growth in recent years. However, with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, almost all operations in the yacht charter market were halted due to severe lockdown restrictions and lack of tourism.

On account of the significant drop in 2020 and estimated quick recovery in 2021 and 2022, the global yacht charter market is expected to bounce back with a CAGR of 25.6% during the forecast period from 2022 to 2030.

Consistently growing number of high net worth individuals to drive the global yacht charter market

The market is highly driven by rising inclination towards luxury cruising worldwide. This further complemented by consistently increasing number of high-net-worth individuals globally. In 2020, the number of high-net-worth individuals worldwide increased by nearly 9%, according to 2020 World Health Report by Capgemini. This represents a promising user base for yacht charter companies. With increasing interest in luxury cruising along with consistently increasing number of high net worth, especially in Asia Pacific, the yacht charter market is set to register robust growth over the forecast period.


Motor yachts segment to lead the market throughout the forecast period

Motor yachts segment led the overall yacht charter market in 2020. The segment contributed to over 70% of the total market value generated worldwide. Despite the exotic experience offered by sailing yachts, motor yachts are typically more preferred over the counterparts. This is primarily due to higher speed, power, space and luxury offered by motor yachts as compared to sailing yachts. Motor yachts have larger space for entertainment, bigger cabins and usable deck space. In addition, they are easier to operate as compared to sailing boats. Thus, people with limited sailing experience prefer chartering motor yachts. Other features offered by motor yachts include sophisticated communication & navigation systems, electronic entertainment systems and amenities.


Europe dominates the market with more than 50% market share; Asia Pacific to emerge as the next promising market

Europe led the overall yacht charter market worldwide with market share, in terms of value, of over 50% in 2020. The European market is principally governed by Mediterranean countries including Greece, Croatia, Italy, Spain and France among others in the region. In addition, the U.K., Germany and some of the Nordic countries too form major markets for yacht chartering business.

The market growth in Europe is primarily supported by favorable climate and spectacular natural beauty. In addition, the region is home to the 2nd highest number of high net worth individuals worldwide. This has further ensured substantial demand for yacht charter services in the region.


Geographic expansion and service enhancement to remain the key strategies

The overall yacht charter market is quite consolidated in nature with major companies such as TUI Marine (including Sunsail, Le boat and Footloose), Dream Yacht Charter and Kiriacoulis among others holding the majority of market share. These companies primarily have their operations in Europe and North America having strong yacht charter sector. In case of Asia Pacific, the region is home to large number of regional yacht charter companies serving limited number of countries, making the market quite fragmented in the region. This is attributed to low popularity of yacht chartering in the current scenario.
