Lots of people book motorised luxury yachts for their honeymoon. But these diesel-powered monsters give off an annoying rattle when the engine is on – hardly the most romantic sound for an ocean-going honeymoon. What’s more, their flat bottoms make them clumsy and easily rocked by waves from side to side, which is not the most pleasant of sensations.

Instead, book yourself a berth on a real sailing yacht – one with billowing white sails and an ocean-going keel that cuts the waves like a knife through butter. No mechanical sounds, just the roar of the sea and spray to serenade you and your loved one.
