Global Yacht Industry Market to Reach $84.7 Billion by 2027

In 2019, the Yacht market was estimated at approximately USD 7.75 billion. Then, it was expected to grow at a rate of more than 5.2% over the forecast period 2020-2027. However, amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global Yacht market is estimated at USD 64.1 Billion in the year 2020 and is expected to reach a revised size of USD 84.7 Billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 4.1% over the period 2020-2027.

A yacht is a large boat, almost like a floating villa with either a motor or sails, i.e., a tensile structure. It is mainly used for recreation, racing or cruising for pleasure purposes. However, in recent years, due to an increase in quality of life, people are increasingly seeking vacation options that can give them ultimate comfort and luxury and an ambience that can make the vacation the most memorable activity of a lifetime.

Leisure activities have become very popular due to the rise in the per capita income of individuals, who are constantly exploring unique ways to spend quality time with their family and friends. Since people are earning more, they manage to spend more on leisure living standards. Therefore, travellers have a rising preference for luxury tourism, personalised service, and exclusive travel options. This growing inclination for luxury tourism is driving a large section of vacationists to the yacht market.
