This book offers an insight into the luxury yacht industry as a provider and facilitator of a luxury yacht experience. Linked to special interest tourism (SIT), luxury yachting is an exclusive area of tourism and practice which operates in a relatively small and niche environment.
Part I offers a range of academic contributions on luxury yachting from a tourism perspective. Part II provides an insight into the industry from the practitioner perspective. Part III stimulates discussions around yachting practices in different destinations.
With a truly global outlook, this contributed volume enhances our understanding of a lucrative area within tourism that has so far been under-researched and under-explored.
