Your health and safety remains our key priority at YachtCharter.sg. We are monitoring the latest situation and will update you here. Additional precautions such as regular cleaning and disinfecting will be taken on all charter yachts.
Yacht charter is an exclusive and private event for small groups, hence risks can be well controlled if all individuals play their part in ensuring good hygiene. We seek the kind cooperation of all charter guests to keep the yachts and yourself free of virus. At this point, all yacht charters will continue on with the additional precautionary measures.
