Mediterranean Luxury Yachts for Charter >>

Please follow the links on the left to get specific information about particular yacht charter locations within the Mediterranean yachting area.

Mediterranean yacht charter holiday locations are unequaled in their natural beauty, cultural heritage, passion, glamour and style. There was a time when the Mediterranean was the centre of the known and civilized world and for private yacht charter vacations, to an extent, it still is. Today, the clear azure waters of the Mediterranean maintain a cachet of culture, history, sophistication, luxury yachts and stunning beauty, all with an endearing reputation of unrestrained energy.

Bodrum Castle TurkeyThe sunny Mediterranean is often conveniently split into two main areas - The Western Mediterranean and the Eastern Mediterranean.  Both parts culturally unique, yet both are lipped with stunning beaches, hidden coves, majestic ports and luxury yachts. Yachts of all sizes and shapes grace the Mediterranean, some are large motor yachts, some are sleek sailing yachts, some performance orientated and others of a more comfortable cruising style. This fabled luxury yacht charter area provides the untamed extravagance of the French Riviera, the gravity-defying architecture of the Italian coasts, the unaffected charms of Croatia, the fragrant orange groves of Spain, the exotic lure of Turkey and Greece, the birthplace of civilization.

The Mediterranean luxury yacht charter area takes in the Tyrrhenian, Ionian, Aegean and Adriatic seas. It includes the austere and striking islands of Sardinia, Corsica, the Balearics and Malta. Some of the most famous private yacht charter spots include Monaco, Nice, Cannes, St Tropez, Capri, Portofino, Amalfi, Positano, Porto Cervo, Palma de Mallorca, Valencia, Barcelona, Dalmatians, Corfu, Mykonos, Piraeus, Bodrum and Marmaris, to name a few. And some of the charter boat countries bordering the Mediterranean include France, Spain, Italy, Croatia, and Greece.

Motor Yacht in The MediterraneanPossibly the most sought after yacht charter vacation ground in the Mediterranean, the French Riviera, is the playground of the world's rich and famous and its the domain of magnificent superyachts and mega yachts. The luxury yacht charter Mecca of the Cote d'Azur runs from St Tropez, to the Italian border. It is composed of 100 miles of possibly the most extravagant and exclusive waterfront in the world including the famous ports of Monaco, Cap Dail, VilleFranche, Cap Ferrat, Nice, Antibes, Golfe Juan and Cannes. Along the French Riviera, Cote d'Azur there are over 30 harbors and more than 3000 restaurants to visit. One can not help but be impressed by the elegance and extravagance that comes with the French Mediterranean coastline, and the luxury super yachts that grace its waters.

The Italian coast, like the French coast, also attracts luxury yacht charters of the highest prestige. A short sail from the endearing chaos of Naples, Italy, can find you at the famously chic Isle of Capri, or the stunning Amalfi Coast. Italy's other yachting highlights include the islands of Ischia, Elba and Ponza, the quaint fishing village of Portofino, the buried city of Pompeii and the prestigious Costa Smeralda of Sardinia.

Mediterranean Sea, CroatiaThe Balearic Islands of Spain have recently become one of Europe's favorite private yacht charter playgrounds. The constant sunshine, clear blue waters and rugged landscape are steeped in an energetic culture comprised of both old and new. The history is prevalent in gothic castles, museums and ancient cobbled streets, whilst the famous Spanish nightlife, lives on in tapas bars, nightclubs and port side cafes. A sailing holiday in The Balearics will allow you to experience more than the average mainland holidaymaker could even imagine.

In Malta a private yacht charter holiday will take you through years of history, openly displayed as part of the charm, from the moment you arrive in Valetta Harbor. In Malta the past is mixed with the present in a passionate display of life and culture. Malta is more than just a historical gem though; it's also an outstanding sailing destination with warm sunshine and clear blue skies from April to October.

Dodecanese GreeceGreece, Turkey and Croatia are situated in the Eastern Mediterranean with centuries of history, culture and mythology. The Aegean and Mediterranean seas between Greece and Turkey were once touched by the Carians, Lycians, Greeks, Romans and Byzantines. The turquoise waters are scattered with sheltered bays with ancient ruins and archeological sites including Greek cities, sunken Roman harbors and Crusader castles. It's no surprise that Greece and Turkey are such a wealth of culture, history and intrigue. The natural beauty of these great sailing vacation areas is equally enchanting. Stunning aqua waters and faultless blue skies are synonymous with this sailing area. On your Greece yacht charter vacation you will be greeted with the warm, colorful vista of traditional waterfront villages, as you approach from the sparkling blue sea.

With typical Mediterranean charm, warm days and clear blue skies, Croatia is becoming an increasingly popular sailboat, flotilla and bareboat yacht charter holiday location. By-gone political problems have kept Croatia relatively untouched, as the rest of the Mediterranean has been overwhelmed by the tourist boom of recent decades. With the variety of over a thousand islands, calm winds and turquoise waters, the Dalmatian Islands will make an unforgettable bareboat yacht charter holiday as well as a luxury motor yacht one.

Dining in The Mediterranean Yachts Aft DeckThe Mediterranean is one of the largest yacht charter vacation grounds in the world and has an incredible choice of charter boats available. They include motor or sailing, bareboat charter or skippered, crewed yachts, catamaran, power boat, sailboat, luxury yachts and of course the ever increasing super yacht charter.

The Mediterranean yacht charter season generally runs from April to the end of October. During the height of the yacht charter season, in July and August, the climate is warm and sunny and the winds tend to be light. While this is the high season as far as yacht charter goes you can still easily avoid onshore tourists while afloat. Another good time to charter your yacht is generally on either of the shoulder seasons from April-May and September-October. These periods fall each side of the main summer season when the temperatures are still comfortable. September, for instance, is an underrated time of the year because the weather is usually good (if not too hot) but the sea is at its maximum temperature which is ideal for swimming. At this time there is greater choice of berths and anchorages for your boating vacation and the onshore tourists are not present in their largest numbers.

As a charter yacht broker, CharterWorld can book any yacht that is available in any yacht charter location.
