More people are spending millions for weeklong cruises on luxury superyachts

Stacy Fischer-Rosenthal and her 30-strong team have had a busy summer booking private yachts for bankers, CEOs and other high flyers now liberated from the shackles of COVID-19 and willing to pay millions of dollars for weeklong luxury cruises.

Bookings for superyachts through Fischer Travel Enterprises, where Fischer-Rosenthal is president, have spiked 20% this year from already high levels in 2021, a trend also seen by other companies chartering out luxury vessels that can come with all the frills from Michelin-starred cuisine to cinemas and submarines.

“Yacht charters are very popular because our clients want the privacy, security and flexibility that it gives them,” Fischer-Rosenthal said. Her company charges $150,000 just to join its members-only service, through which superyachts can be chartered anywhere around the world. “They want to have a luxurious experience.”
