Motor yachts far exceed sailing yachts on the charter market, and typically have more space for amenities such as Jacuzzis, swimming pools, toys and larger tenders. Layout varies, but in accordance with maritime law, most motor yachts will sleep a maximum of 12 guests. Larger yachts meeting the SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) requirements can accommodate more.
Sailing yachts feature many of the same modern and luxurious amenities as motor yachts, although will have less interior space compared to a motor yacht of the same size. However, gliding quietly through the ocean powered only by the force of the wind is an unparalleled experience, unique to sailing.
