There are tons of ways to booze cruise, but common charter services often don’t take place aboard ultra-luxurious boats. We’re talking about yachts with more than two bathrooms, sleeping arrangements for 12 people, and jacuzzis on the upper deck. While most of us will never own one of these high-sea masterpieces, we can now rent them thanks to Boatbound. Like an Airbnb for boats, nautical vacationers can choose to rent these beauties—with a full captain and crew—for anywhere from four hours to multiple weeks, depending on when and where they want to sail. Because being on an ultra-luxe boat really means nothing without indulging in fancy drinks, we scoured Boatbound for the rentals with the coolest on-board bars. Browse the selection and dream about lounging on one of these beauties with an ice cold beverage in hand.
