Superyachts with shallow drafts are growing in popularity as yacht owners and charterers seek to explore more remote destinations. Discover the benefits of superyachts with shallow drafts.
A shallow draft enables a yacht to berth in small harbours and marinas that often have shallow waters. Some of the most stunning destinations, as well as remote and isolated locations across the world, don’t have deep-water harbours. A superyacht with a shallow draft enables yacht owners and charterers to more easily access these destinations and explore remote beaches, hidden coves, and quaint seaside villages. Additionally, the shallower the yacht’s draft, the less opportunity there is for colliding with reefs, helping to protect earth’s precious marine life.
Many of the world’s most prestigious shipbuilders have built superyachts with shallow drafts, due to the increasing demand for yacht owners and charterers wishing to explore remote destinations far from the madding crowds.
