To ensure you are presented with a good selection of the best superyachts available on the market this year, you shouldn’t hesitate too much. Charter boats are booking up early, and this trend has been going on for a few years now. Charterers are now thinking ahead, wanting to ensure that they will holiday aboard the best boat with the best crew and a fantastic range of amenities – just the way they have imagined it. The smart way to charter this year, is to get in early to ensure you don’t miss out on a great opportunity. Many superyachts are even offering Mediterranean ‘early bird’ specials if booked well in advance or offer off-season Caribbean and Bahamas getaways.

But don’t panic! Although there are boats that have only a limited availability left, there are still yachts with great options. The busiest weeks of the summer season in the Western Mediterranean are the last week of July and the first half of August were the availability might be limited; for the rest of the season, we still have some exciting offers for you to considers, including yachts that have been launched recently or are new to charter market.


The Western and the Eastern Mediterranean remain the top places to cruise however, the Caribbean is also a fabulous choice, especially for American clients wanting to stay close to home, with many yachts remaining in the area following the busy winter season.

Coming back to the most popular destinations, France and Italy are staying strong, with numerous chic harbours and beaches along the French Riviera, picturesque and lively towns along the Italian coast or the timeless allure of the nearby islands of Capri, Sardinia, Sicily or Corsica. There is no place like the Amalfi Coast and Naples to taste the Italian pizza or France to stroll along seaside promenades while popping into the most luxurious boutiques along the way.

If Paella and passionate Flamenco have been on your mind for a while, then we have some good news! More and more vessels are obtaining their licenses to charter in Spain and the Balearics resulting in a much better selection of yachts cruising this area as there were a few years back.

Croatia is still on the list of the most popular destinations, thanks to her amazing natural environment, pristine waters and hundreds of islands to explore, as well as the seemingly endless amount of UNESCO Heritage Sites to visit. Whether you like quiet bays or lively nightlife, you will find both.

The renowned Greek architecture, the islands, laid back lifestyle and hospitable locals, make Greece a lovely place to enjoy for a week or two; and while in the East Med, Turkey’s mesmerising coastlines will leave you breathless each time.

If you’ve seen it all and are yearning for something different, then South East Asia might be just the right destination for you. The selection of yachts is more limited, however, so do get in touch with us at your earliest to discuss your options. One thing is for sure, the Andaman Sea will leave you with a suitcase full of amazing adventure, incredible experiences and beautiful memories to last a lifetime.


Let’s not forget about the events! In addition to the annual Monaco Grand Prix and the Cannes Film Festival, 2017 will see the most exciting regatta of all times: the America’s Cup. To be held in Bermuda this year, you can either rent a villa or a luxury apartment to stay in close proximity to the races, but nothing will ever compare to renting your own yacht to view this thrilling battle of the best. Look through some of the America’s Cup charter yachts or contact us for a full list and gratuitous advice.
