The Enchanting Mediterranean: From French Riviera, Italy & Spain to Croatia, Montenegro, Turkey & Greece
The Mediterranean attracts holidaymakers from across the world who choose a luxury yacht charter as the best way to travel along coastlines and visit distant islands as they sleep in comfort or dine on the first-class fare. The peak season begins in mid-late spring with the glitter and glamour of the Cannes Film Festival and continues with the Monaco Grand Prix; around these two events alone is a packed social calendar of music, galas and dinners that turn an interesting destination into an unforgettable experience.
Even without evenings of revelry, there is plenty to see and to do, from the galleries of Matisse and Picasso to ancient cathedrals and luscious beaches, hidden away from the crowds across the sea. Some luxury yachts also offer additional amenities, where you can celebrate a special occasion with friends and family then watch a film in the onboard cinema, rejuvenate in the spa or relax on your own private terrace overlooking Dubrovnik lit up at night.
Take a look at these 13 incredible superyachts that are available this spring and summer, all of which were either launched or refitted within the past two years. Ensure that your holiday time isn’t wasted on traffic, renting water toys or finding accommodation and restaurants at each destination and indulge in the complete luxury and opulence of a crewed superyacht charter.

Following her 2017 refit, she is as fresh and invigorating as the morning air and capable of a maximum speed of 23 knots for zipping from island to island.

The beautiful upper deck aft is prepared for your first alfresco meal of the year, offering a stunning setting to seat up to 10 guests.
