Eastern Mediterranean Yacht Charters

Greece, Turkey and Croatia are the major yachting destinations within the Eastern Mediterranean. These areas while being completely different and unique all offer a mix of history, culture, mythology, friendly locals and natural beauty. The Aegean and Mediterranean seas between Greece and Turkey provide turquoise waters which are scattered with sheltered bays with ancient ruins and archeological sites. View Eastern Mediterranean charter yachts here.

The natural beauty of these great sailing vacation areas is equally enchanting. Stunning aqua waters and faultless blue skies are synonymous with the Eastern Mediterranean. On your Croatia, Greece and Turkey yacht charter vacation you will be greeted with the warm, colorful vista of traditional waterfront villages, as you approach from the sparkling blue sea.



Starting from the North Western part of the Eastern Mediterranean, at Venice, and moving to the South Eastern parts we have:

The Adriatic Sea – Venice, Croatia, Montenegro

VENICE

Venice, situated at the top of the Adriatic and one of the most iconic cities of Italy, is a beautiful and famous city surrounded by water and an ideal place to start an Eastern Mediterranean mega yacht charter. There are good flights to Venice to meet your yacht and from there you can sail south along the Croatia coastline. A yacht vacation is a fantastic way to experience this classic Eastern Mediterranean city. Venice is one of the most romantic cities in the world, with its intricate web of canals, charming gondoliers, glorious renaissance architecture and narrow cobbled streets. On your charter boat, take a cruise down the Grand Canal.

CROATIA

Moving onto Croatia, over a thousand islands make up the Dalmatian Coast. With such variety, calm winds and turquoise waters, the Croatian coastline makes for an unforgettable bareboat yacht charter holiday. The sea here is remarkably clean and, unlike some parts of the Western Mediterranean, it is still alive with sea life and full of fish. The cities and villages are ancient and intriguing.

With so many stunning islands, bays and beaches, the Croatian Islands can virtually guarantee you, a little bit of privacy and some truly remarkable anchorages. Some of the main places to see in Croatia include areas include Pula, Opatija, Krk, Zadar, Split, Hvar, Dubrovnik, and then moving on to Montenegro, the famous port of Kotor provides some a rustic and rugged backdrop of mountains and sea.

GREECE

Moving further south we come into Greece, a famed yachting location and one of the most important parts of the Eastern Mediterranean. Corfu, in the Ionian Sea is the first place of interest as well as other known spots like Cephalonia, Paxos, Zakynthos. As a Greece yacht charter covers so much territory, you can have a more detailed look at the main areas to charter your yacht in Greece here. There are 4 main yachting areas: The Ionian Islands, The Aegean & Sporades, the Cyclades and last but not least the Dodecanese.

A Greece yacht charter holiday, around the various famous sunny Greek Islands in the Eastern Mediterranean provides so much variety. You have ancient history, humbling architecture and beautiful little waterfront villages tumbling down the island mountains. Greece visitors seem to want to revisit Greece year after year and there is no better way to see Greece than from a yacht. Everywhere you go there are ancient ruins and ancient history to soak up, as well as exquisite natural beauty. The stunning aqua or dark blue waters and the faultless blue skies are a perpetual draw card for sailing yacht charters vacations as well as luxury motor yachts.

MONTENEGRO

The strikingly beautiful country of Montenegro is also located in the Eastern Mediterranean on the coast of the Adriatic Sea, south of Croatia. Montenegro superyacht charter is often an important part of any East Med or Croatia yacht charter vacation. The Bay of Kotor is one of the key destinations in Montenegro, with plenty of other beautiful sites, bays and beaches to discover. This fascinating country boasts ancient history, interesting culture and traditions, lovely weather and spectacular natural beauty. 

TURKEY

Turkey is another important area well known for yacht charter vacations in the Eastern Mediterranean. Turkey has more coastline than any other Mediterranean country, Eastern or Western. There is an endless amount of pretty anchorages for your Turkey charter yacht to discover. Interestingly, the Turkish coastline tends to have a few more greenery and trees (pine) than the rest of the Mediterranean coastal areas. You will even see the odd waterfall.

Along the coasts of the Aegean and South Eastern Mediterranean, you will sail within turquoise waters and sheltered bays that were once touched by the Carians, Lycians, Greeks, Romans and Byzantines. You can also discover ancient ruins an archeological sites including Greek cities, sunken Roman harbors and crusader castles. It's no surprise that Turkey is such a wealth of culture, history and intrigue in a place that reflects a meeting point between Asia and Europe.

Being the most popular yacht charter destination in Europe, Mediterranean has a very large selection of luxury motor yachts, sailing yachts, catamarans, gulets and mega yachts for rent.
