But from experiencing many people who have chartered yachts with kids, this is almost never the case if properly planned.  In fact children normally love the experience of being on a yacht, respect the rules, and are so fascinated by the experience that they are much better behaved than they would be if cooped up in a hotel room! The boat choice is critical. We normally recommend catamarans, because they offer so much space, both inside and outside.
