Northern Europe Luxury Yacht Charter
Northern Europe is a surprisingly interesting charter destination for luxury yachts. During the high summer months The United Kingdom (England, Scotland and Wales), Scandinavia (Sweden, Norway & Finland) and the Baltic Seas, north of Germany, offer some exquisite and tranquil cruising grounds. Indeed during the summer the Baltic Scandinavia and Russia can receive around 20 hours of daylight to explore with. Not surprisingly perhaps, there has been an increasing demand by charterers, particularly larger superyacht charterers, to explore northern Europe on their yachting vacation.
Often overlooked, Northern Europe is the mighty land of majestic fjords, fairytale villages, and wonderful seascapes. Here is a place of history, eclectic culture and natural waterways.
When it comes to a yacht charter Scandinavia means mighty Norwegian fjords, un-crowded serenity and peaceful historic ports. Norway one of the hotspots for glaciers, which actually tumble down from the mountains to meet the sea. Finland’s famous energetic capital city Helsinki is also on the water and displays an artistically rich artistic cultural center. The magical cruising areas of Sweden reveal a tapestry of glistening lakes neat and vibrant cities, whilst Denmark’s Jutland peninsula is another magical location.
The United Kingdom is a famous and ancient yachting location. This is the place of sailing tradition with some of the world's most important and longest running regattas such as the Rolex Fastnet Race and the Round the Island races. The America’s Cup began here, but there are also new sailing races in and around the Solent, such as the J Class classic sailing events.
Scotland’s west coast embodies intrigue and mystic with mist-shrouded lochs as well as atmospheric port towns.
Germany & Russia
Germany and the Baltic Sea is where ancient seafarers plied their trade. This is contrasted with an area which now, in modern times, is the birth place of some of the world’s most important superyachts by shipyards like Lurssen, Abeking & Rasmussen and Blohm & Voss.
Russia has also seen some yacht charters over the last few years. St. Petersburg is the cultural capital of Russia and few cities showcase as many art galleries, concert halls, museums and theaters that can compare.
