European yacht charters (leaving aside the most popular Mediterranean counties) are growing in popularity for the more experienced charterer. Anyone on a yacht charter holiday in the British Isles or Europe will experience great cultural and scenic variety. There are yacht charter operators in England, Scotland, Ireland, Brittany, Holland, Sweden and Norway, to name a few. There are also yacht charter locations for every level of skill, experience and budget from the shallow east coast of England to the rugged highlands of Scotland and the soaring fjords of Norway. Scotland can sometimes be tranquil and sometimes rugged; Britain can be sometimes busy and sometimes deserted; Brittany can be sometimes sunny and sometimes rainy. No matter what you desire you will no-doubt encounter a concentration of history and culture. Europe is one of the world's seven continents. Europe stretches from the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, to the Ural and Caucasus Mountains in the east where is it 'divided' from Asia. Europe is bordered by the Arctic Ocean and other bodies of water to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the west, the Mediterranean Sea to the south, and the Caspian Sea, Black Sea and connected waterways to the southeast. ‘Europe’ therefore does include countries that borders with the Western Mediterranean Sea such as the popular yacht destinations of Spain, France and Italy, however these well developed yachting destinations found in Southern Europe are discussed in more detail under the Western Mediterranean yacht charter section. Northern Europe has all the main types of yacht charters available in the United Kingdom (England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales) Scandinavia (Denmark, Norway and Sweden) Germany and Russia, including motor, sailing, skippered, crewed yachts, catamaran, power boat, sailboat, luxury yachts and motor yachts. There are also more and more superyachts that visit the area, available for charter including explorer yachts or expedition yachts. Weather patterns make Northern Europe’s summer charter season shorter than that in the Mediterranean, which is why fewer luxury yachts tend to be permanently based in Northern European waters. Summer, from May to about September, is the main season and the best time to charter a yacht in Europe.
