With the recent Netflix special “The Game Changers” coming out in 2019 and a slew of vegan food products hitting the mainstream market in the past decade, its no surprise that more charter yacht guests and private yacht owners are looking to lessen their meat intake.
Incidentally, the number of yacht crew who have “attempted” to turn vegan recently has also shown positive signs for the vegan movement. I say attempted” because we all know of that one crew member who swears to be vegan, but scoffs fried chicken and burgers when they are out on the weekend. Lol.
The wellness market is also booming right now with crew and guests asking for more gym facilities onboard their luxury vessels. Yoga pants have never been more ubiquitous (hands up if your interior wears these for yard periods!) and kombucha now has a dedicated fridge at most wholefoods across the States.
There’s no denying that the vegan trend is also here to stay. And why not?! Let’s be honest, there’s plenty of fantastic reasons to cut down, or out, of meat and dairy.
I’m not a nutritionist, nor an animal activist, so I’m not going to lecture anyone about their choices, but I’m pretty sure caring about your own body, and that of cute fluffy animals is paramount to life.
