Engel & Völkers Yachting is observing an emerging trend for 2021: “Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we see future potential in the migration of new clients from other nautical business sectors to our private charter service. Many who previously spent their vacations on 5-star cruise ships are now considering charters as a much safer alternative in the future,” Anissa Mediouni reveals.
