Your luggage

Use soft-sided bags only; never hard-sided, square bags.
Luggage storage space on almost all boats is limited, and hard-sided bags can cause damage to teak decks and other wood trim. Soft duffels can be folded up and stowed after you’re unpacked. Soft bags with wheels are acceptable, but should be handled with care onboard to avoid damage to the yacht.
