Consumers, especially retail consumers, prefer to visit charter destinations in large groups as it is cost-effective as compared to individual and couple chartering. Moreover, this trend is further being promoted by rising number of high net worth individuals, who prefer to charter large luxury yachts. Various yacht charter companies are expanding their fleet of large and medium yachts to cater to this growing demand. For instance, in 2011, Sunsail launched Sunsail 444, a four-cabin catamaran yacht that is spacious and is designed to provide greater privacy to charter customers.
