AI, and its potential impact, is a hot topic in almost every industry worldwide and the Superyacht industry is no exception. Whatever your opinion on the rising production of AI technology, there are some possible ways that the software could be of use to you as Yacht Crew. One example that yacht crew can utilise AI is via the creation of itineraries. We asked Open AI’s Chat GPT to create a Superyacht itinerary, here’s what the bot came up with…

What is Chat GPT?

Chat GPT is a powerful artificial intelligence bot developed in 2015 by the company ‘OpenAI’. It was released in November 2022 and has since taken the world by storm, with an equal amount of negative and positive feedback.

How does it work?

Chat GPT has been pre-trained using a vast amount of data, which allows the bot to interpret and understand human language as well as generating high-quality content. Because it has been trained to understand the structures and patterns of natural language, it can generate responses that sound like it has been written by a human.

The software does not have the ability to search the internet for information, it actually relies on the knowledge it acquired from training data to generate its responses.

Creating A Superyacht Itinerary Using Chat GPT

Using Chat GPT is fairly straight forward, simply type a question or ask the bot to write something for you. You can even ask it to write a CV for you. The software can also respond to answers it has previously given in the thread, so it works like a kind of conversation.

I wanted to see what it would come up with in terms of a Yachting itinerary so I entered this into the chat box: ‘Plan a Superyacht itinerary for me’

Here was the first response:

“Certainly! I can help you plan a superyacht itinerary. To create a personalized itinerary, I’ll need some information from you:

  1. Duration of the trip: How many days or weeks would you like the itinerary to cover?
  2. Starting location: Where would you like to embark on your superyacht journey?
  3. Destination preferences: Are there any specific regions or countries you would like to visit?
  4. Activities and interests: What are your preferred activities and interests while on board or on land? For example, water sports, snorkeling, cultural experiences, or nightlife.
  5. Special requests: Do you have any specific requests or preferences for your superyacht experience?

Once I have these details, I’ll be able to create a tailored itinerary for your dream superyacht trip”

Next I gave it further details by entering this: “The trip will be two weeks, beginning in St Tropez, continuing on to Italy and Croatia, ending back in the South of France. Guests would like to do some water sports, as well as visiting local eateries and bars.”

Here’s the full itinerary it came up with:

“Great! Here’s a suggested two-week superyacht itinerary based on your preferences:

Remember, this is just a suggested itinerary, and it can be customized according to your preferences and the weather conditions during your trip. Bon voyage!”


Whilst the software will require additional work, it provides a good start. Chat GPT failed to go into detail on specific locations or restaurants etc, but this could provide an outline of an itinerary for a trip.

Further, it is very important to keep in mind when using Chat GPT that the software sometimes gives answers that are not technically accurate. Chat GPT is based on data that is limited to 2021 only, so it cannot produce responses based on anything past that year. Essentially the data it has been trained on is out of date, so to gain the latest information, standard search engines still have the edge.

Always make sure to double-check the responses it gives you before using the text.

What did you think of this itinerary? We would love to hear from yacht crew!
