A message from our CEO, Adrian Walker:

We're in the travel space and as such we are very much affected by the global developments. Our top priority at Boataffair is to have everyone safe. We have team members, friends and partners across the globe - from Italy, Brazil, the US to Asia & many more. We talk everyday to each other, we over communicate on purpose to instill a sense of calm. We are here for each other. They're there for us.

Restrictions on travel

At the moment, most countries have imposed a travel ban, policies are changing fast and daily.

Please keep in mind that many airlines have reduced their services and routes that normally would take you to your dream destination may not be operating. Furthermore, in a myriad of countries service providers in the travel industry had to stop their services such as hotels, restaurants, bars or cafes.

If you consider travel, a yacht charter or a yacht vacation, please inform yourselves about the current cancellation policies. Get in touch with the Boataffair customer support team at
