Summer Mediterranean Charters – The Season
Holiday makers charter yachts in the Mediterranean from April right through to the end of October and there is more info about this here. The high summer season is in July and August and this time is less likely to provide charter yacht discounts. Some of the best times to rent a yacht, and indeed to find a discounted yacht, is in the shoulder season of summer which, being June, September and even October. There is a greater choice of yacht berths in marinas and anchorages when chartering outside the July & August high summer season.

During the height of the Mediterranean yacht charter season, in July and August, the climate is warm and sunny and the winds tend to be light.
