Dream Yacht Charter 2022: A record season!

Loïc Bonnet, manager with 22 years at the helm of the world's leading yacht charter company, has just released a flattering account for the past 12 months’ activity, showing a truly post-Covid year.

With an occupancy rate approaching 100% during the high season from mid-June through early September, DYC is confirming the positive trends seen in the pre-Covid period. Indeed, the season has now become longer, with bookings starting much earlier, from April-May, and ending with the arrival of winter. The best-selling destinations are Croatia, Greece and the Caribbean. The season was also a success for exotic destinations with a very good level of bookings, notably in Martinique, French Polynesia and the Seychelles. With 850 boats in 2021, the company will generate more revenue than they did with 1,050 in 2019. The arrival of new enthusiasts, attracted by the simplicity of skippered chartering and/or full crew with hostess, is a major factor. This type of cruising has increased by more than 20% in a year. To continue this dynamic, Dream Yacht Charter is commissioning, for the coming season, more than 150 new boats, of which nearly 80% are catamarans, particularly the Bali Catsmart, Bali 4.4, Lagoon 51 and Excess 14.

More than 160 boats will be sold by the Dream Yacht Group next year: 75% of these are catamarans from the Bali, Fountaine-Pajot and Lagoon brands. Deliveries are mainly scheduled for exotic destinations (Seychelles, Thailand, French Polynesia, etc.) and the United States, while a third are bound for the Mediterranean.
