4 Reasons To Rent A Yacht In San Diego

With its sprawling coastline and idyllic weather, San Diego offers a perfect backdrop for visitors and locals alike to enjoy the outdoors — both on the water and off. For ocean-lovers looking for a memorable way to celebrate a special occasion, liven up a corporate event, or simply enjoy the camaraderie of sailing with friends and family members, renting a yacht in San Diego provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity

 

With luxurious interiors, private decks, and top-notch amenities, yacht charters offer a blend of comfort and adventure that is hard to match. Here are 4 reasons to rent a yacht in San Diego.

1. Breathtaking Views of San Diego Bay

With its architectural mix of Victorian, Spanish Revival, and Modern styles, San Diego’s skyline is unique unto itself. Staying onshore offers the opportunity to visit historic buildings like the Santa Fe Depot, but it doesn’t allow for the panoramic views visible only by ocean. Renting a yacht in San Diego brings the disparate pieces of the city into one cogent whole, a landscape dominated by One America Plaza’s recognizable pyramid-shaped spire and the sail-like roof of the San Diego Convention Center.

 

Similarly, looking out towards the immense expanse of the Pacific Ocean can provide glimpses of naval ships, the Point Loma peninsula, and (if you’re lucky) a frolicking dolphin or two. As the largest United States naval base on the west coast, the massive Naval Base San Diego is a wonder to behold, particularly because of its state-of-the-art ships that dominate the surrounding waters.

2. Luxurious Onboard Amenities

All yachts come equipped with a certain level of luxury, which makes them an excellent choice for people interested in experiencing the water without getting (too) wet. For example, the Searay 520 is a beautifully designed yacht model that features a third-level sedan bridge with an optional Isinglass enclosure that keeps the elements at bay. With 3 bedrooms, 2 full-head compartments with showers, and a full kitchen, you and up to 12 guests can truly enjoy life on the water.

 

For an adventure with a little more speed, the Cantius 50 is a luxury yacht powered by twin Yanmar 6LY3-ETP diesel engines. Translation? This vessel can hit top speeds of around 30 knots, which makes it a great way to get around San Diego’s waters quickly. More speed doesn’t necessarily mean less luxury, though, since the Cantius 50 includes a state-of-the-art navigation system, a fully equipped galley, a comfortable upper salon, and 3 staterooms.

3. Playtime On The Water

Although yachts can be enjoyed purely for their role as a luxurious water transportation option, they also can play home base to a variety of watersports and activities. Lily pad rafts are large floating foam mats that can be used as relaxing flotation devices or for a variety of water games. This stable and buoyant platform is great for sunbathing and easy to set up, launch, and access via a yacht’s swim platform.

 

For passengers wanting a slightly more active experience, going kayaking and paddleboarding in the waters off San Diego is a highly popular pastime. Having a yacht to return to and launch from is a great way to avoid busy beaches and access spots hard to get to without a larger vessel.

4. Intimate Social Engagements

Chartering a luxury yacht in San Diego is a particularly savvy option for social events that require a little more privacy and class than the typical onshore experience could provide. From wedding parties to anniversaries, yacht rentals allow guests to mingle within a contained space, which can foster deeper conversations and unexpected introductions.

 

Whether you’re attending prom or a business meet-and-greet, yachts deliver on ambience. Few settings are more calming and inspiring than being on the ocean, a place to look out towards the horizon and remember just how big the world is. Creating a literal pocket of calm amidst a constantly shifting sea may just be one of the best ways to form meaningful memories that last a lifetime.
