The rise and fall of yacht-charter bookings are intrinsically tied to the rise and fall of the stock market. So, much to brokers', crews', and owners' relief, the last few months have been marked by an increasing interest once again in charter vacations.

In this, the latest Megayacht News Radio podcast, I speak with Missy Johnston, owner of Northrop & Johnston Worldwide Yacht Charters. She relates how she determines which yacht is right for each of her clients, what makes for a great charter crew, and what the future holds for both vacationers and the industry alike.
