Click and Go

As with just about ev­ery­thing else, the dig­i­tal revo­lu­tion is trans­form­ing the world of lux­ury hol­i­days. With the ad­vent of Uber for pri­vate jets and Airbnb for lux­ury vil­las, the most glam­orous boats, planes and ho­tel suites are just a click or two away.

Find your… YACHT

Own­ing a boat is a bit like hav­ing a child—ex­pen­sive and time-con­sum­ing but won­der­fully re­ward­ing once you get the hang of it. But un­like child-rear­ing, you can dip your toe in and out of the wa­ter­borne world with Get­my­boat, a new app for rent­ing yachts, sail­ing boats and even cata­ma­rans. Launched in 2014, the app now gath­ers to­gether 64,000 boats in 171 coun­tries, and you can pick be­tween month-long char­tered hol­i­days, week­end sail­ing, din­ner cruises or even just a day of whale watch­ing. As soon as you open the app, the GPS pin­points your location and which boats are on of­fer in the area, sug­gest­ing not only yachts but sta­tion­ary boats in which you can spend the night in­stead of a ho­tel. Oh, and if you have a cruiser of your own, you can pop it on the site when it’s not in use and earn money get­ting other pas­sen­gers to take it from one place to the next.
