So, you've won the lottery, you've bought your gigantic pristine sparkling white yacht (as all good jackpot winners should). Now what? Well, either you take some sailing lessons, or you hire yourself an experienced crew, and then you set sail for wherever the ocean takes you!
Of course as a newly-minted millionaire, you won't need to watch your budget - you'll be able to drop anchor in any coastal town in the world. So why not move up the ranks of the elite and set your sights on some of the globe's most sought-after and expensive docks? Because you know if it's pricy just to park your yacht, you can expect some serious extravagance and a holiday worth remembering the minute you set foot on dry land!
If you've got €889, you can sail into the dock of Yacht Haven Grande, located on the island of St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. That's in the Caribbean, in case you didn't know. It's also home to pristine beaches, scores of watersports, a cosmopolitan atmosphere and a thriving nightlife. Book your spot on this 32 square metre paradise today and get ready for an island holiday you'll never forget!
If someone says "luxury holiday" to you, Croatia may not be the first country that comes to mind - but that's only because you haven't experienced the sheer fabulousness of its seaside resorts, like Split. Pay the docking fee of €1,001 Euros per day and not only will you enjoy fun in the sun like never before, you'll also be able to enjoy the rich and varied culture of this 1700-year old city as well.
Of course Spain had to be on the list somewhere, particularly when docks such as the Marina Port Vell charge €1,084 a day for the pleasure of your company. We don't know about you, but we think that's pretty pricy - although they do have the largest aquarium in Europe to showcase in exchange, featuring 8,000 fish and 6 million litres of sea water. Forget the food, the bullfights, the architecture and the sun - it might be worth going just for that!
Want to splash out a bit more? Then make sure you've got your wallet ready, because you'll need it if you're looking to dock in Sardinia. This jewel of the Mediterranean boasts 2,000 km of coastline, part of which you'll see for yourself when you dock in Port Cervo for the princely sum of €2,574 a night. Expect top hotels, five-star beaches, non-stop excitement, and the exotic island holiday of your dreams!
Ready to set sail for the world's premier ports and docks? You'll need that lotto jackpot first - and your huge yacht too of course! Luckily both are within reach - just buy your lotto tickets online from GiantLottos.com in time for the weekend draws, and both your private yacht and your ultimate vacation could soon be yours to enjoy! Good luck!
