Sardinia Yachts is part of the ANA, Take Me ‘Round the World Trip Report.
If you’re looking to feel poor, go to Dubai. If you are ready to accept that you are not among the super rich, go to Porto Cervo. The nice thing about Porto Cervo is that everyone on holiday is friendly. My explanation for this is that no one has to be presumptuous because there is always someone there with a bigger yacht. Indeed, I was told that one of the biggest yachts in the world which can only dock in two locations was cruising the Sardinia waters when I was there.
While you can see the yachts docked next to each other on the marina, to appreciate their glamour, you have to see them on the water. To truly appreciate them, you have to be on board, something I could not manage to do.
I saw yachts with jet skis. I saw yachts with secondary boats that would serve just fine as my primary boat. I saw yachts with fun watersides. I also saw yachts with helicopters. Sometimes it was difficult to know if the boat was a private yacht or military vessel.
Curious, I asked what one of these mega yachts cost. I was told that they can go for $300,000,000 and, if you can afford that, be sure to save another $500,000 for fueling.
I don’t know how someone legally accumulates enough wealth to get a yacht, but I can assure you that blogging is not the way the way to do it (see “Click Here!” How Blogs Make $).
