Is an exhilarating speed on the top of your check list when deciding on a luxury yacht for your next charter vacation? If so, you should consider these fast modern and sleek superyachts below. They are a list of the top ten fastest superyachts for charter. MISTRAL 55 comes in at number one on our list able to achieve an incredible speed on 55 knots. The MISTRAL 55 yacht is also the largest yacht on or top ten fastest charter yachts, as the rest of fastest in our list are smaller, more agile vessels under 30m.

Although the yachts below are indeed able attain these incredible speeds it is not likely that they regularly cruise at those speeds, choosing instead a more economical lower speed. Some of the yachts would burn in excess of 1000 litres per hour in fuel at their top speed which clearly is not sustainable!

The fastest charter yachts are not necessarily the fast yachts in the world, with that honour belonging to M/Y ‘The World is Not Enough’ which is heralded as the world's fastest super yacht with a high speed of around 65-70 knots. Measuring 44.21m (145' ) and built in 2004 by Millennium Superyachts, she was designed by Mulder Design and is brainchild of John Staluppi and John Rosatti.
