10 incredible family charter yachts for Mediterranean holidays

June 15, 2017

Written by Rachael Steele

Initiates to the world of luxury charters would be forgiven for believing that superyachts cater exclusively to adults, what with the many classical interiors on offer and typical facilities such as spa rooms, wet bars and gyms, yet many motor yachts and even sailing yachts have updated their entertainment to follow modern trends and certification ensures that safety is standard in every design.

Whether you are searching for the latest water toys to impress your little ones, spacious outdoor areas for running around, or simply a superyacht that comes with games consoles to alleviate the boredom between destinations, here are 10 family friendly luxury yachts that guarantee ‘are we there yet?’ is a phrase you’ll only hear before your holiday begins.

1. Jo – Toys galore, plus a dance floor

Superyacht JO is ready to entertain in the Mediterranean with her great dance floor, a fantastic variety of water toys and a water slide.

Adults and children alike will never be at a loss for water toys to play with: M/Y JO is a Certified RYA Jetski Training Centre and the bosun and deckhands are qualified windsurf and kitesurf instructors, so you can afford that quiet moment sunbathing on the soft sands of Mykonos knowing that everyone is in safe hands.

After a day of action-packed activities, settle in with the games consoles and compete against each other for the highest party games score, or sit back in the spacious main salon and enjoy a night in together with the wide selection of family films.

“…the charter was a success. The crew was very friendly and professional and delighted to serve. Overall the boat was in a very good condition, the rooms downstairs were much bigger (I even slept once there to try myself), my room was also excellent, the chief cook was really excellent… In one word, it is a Benetti, luxury + service were very good. I would strongly recommend it everyone. Thanks for everything.”

Open yacht ANNABEL II is capable of a top speed of 20 knots, so your group spends less time travelling and more hours among the ruins, markets and coasts of your different destinations.

“We have just completed a three week cruise of the Croatian waters aboard Annabel II and are so completely delighted I am compelled to report back for other prospective travelers. We began our cruise in Tavit, Montenegro… stopping at islands along the Dalmatian Coast…

It helps that these cruising waters are simply outstanding in every way: beautiful bays, quaint and historical harbors, 78 degree water, great swimming, hiking, killer sunsets, stand up paddle boarding, interesting and historical villages.

The yacht was eminently satisfactory with jacuzzi, music system, TVs everywhere, a huge master stateroom etc., etc. Annabel II also possesses a tuned piano which did get used.

But the greatest delight was our crew consisting of Captain Andrew, Engineer Nathan, Stewardess Hayley and Chef Dee Dee…And dinners were just fabulous, each different with elaborate place settings and napkins folded using origami rules. Individual dietary needs were always respected, and the meals were healthy.”

- M/Y ANNABEL II, July 2016 in Croatia

With over 650+ movies to choose from and games as well, there is plenty to keep young minds busy while the adults socialise on the sundeck and unwind in the Jacuzzi with a drink from the bar.
