Despite the world’s economy being hit by the pandemic and the tourist industry suffering the worst losses in the wake of travel restrictions, some companies have come out winning. With the growing affinity for privacy, the wealthy choose private jets for travel and private yachts for leisure. For them, traveling in style and luxury has become synonymous with traveling in safety. Riding the wave of the swelling demand in the sector is Tommaso Chiabra’s Royal Yacht International. It has benefited immensely from the recent upswing in the market, having access to a vast inventory of over 1,400 charter yachts ranging in size from 70 to 500 feet long.
