Mediterranean Yacht Charters

The clear, azure waters of the Mediterranean are a luxury charter yacht paradise, bursting with culture, history, sophisticated ports and islands that still maintain a pristine wilderness. This perennially popular luxury yacht charter region incorporates the fashionable French Riviera, Corsica, the Balearic Islands of Spain, mystical Italian coastlines and the islands of Sardinia and Sicily, and in the East, the ancient and unspoilt cruising grounds of Croatia, and Turkey and Greece, considered the birthplace of civilization.

The Balearic Islands – Mallorca (or Majorca), Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera – are island paradises for sailors, superyachts and luxury yacht charters.

The Med, as it's known, is one of the largest yacht charter vacation grounds in the world and has an incredible choice of charter boats available, sailing yachts and motor yachts of all sizes and levels of luxury, sailing and power catamarans and the traditional gulets of the eastern Mediterranean cultures.

The Med yacht charter season generally runs from mid-May to mid-October. During the peak of the season, in July and August, when temperatures rise, tourists flock to the coastlines and islands of the Mediterranean. Fortunately, luxury charter guests are able to avoid much of the onshore tourist crowds on the sanctuary of their vessels.

Another good time to charter a luxury yacht is on either of the shoulder seasons in June and September. These periods fall each side of the main summer season when the temperatures are still inviting, there are fewer tourists and a greater choice of berths and anchorages.
