The ArT of ChArTer
The article “Unchartered Waters” [April] drew valid contrasts between the wild, pristine natural environment of Belize and a sophisticated, luxury superyacht experience, painting pictures of beauty from two different perspectives: nature’s artwork, and man’s.
The ability to enjoy them both, simultaneously, makes for a very special experience and, surely, reason enough to consider investing in a high-end charter vacation of this kind.
I think it’s also worth pointing out the symbiotic relationship between the environment and the charter yacht. One feeds the other. An idyllic environment gives the charter yacht a desirable playground. The charter yacht returns the favor by bringing revenue to the area and increasing awareness of its value as a tourist destination. The Belizean economy, dependent for so many years on a diminishing supply of Honduran mahogany, could surely use more of this.
Thank you for yet another well-written article in your magazine, of which I, for one, have become a recent fan.
