Charter: In the Med

Mediterranean charters to keep an eye on for your next vacation.

Sailing yachts, catamarans and superyachts all set course for the Mediterranean to take advantage of the summer weather and proximity to a wide range of beautiful seaside cities. Whatever your Mediterranean charter desire, there is a yacht to meet your needs.

Here are five charters to keep in mind for your next Mediterranean adventure.

Consider The VIP:

The master stateroom aboard Inception is impressive, located aft on the bridge deck and opening to a hot tub. But the VIP forward on the main deck is also hard to beat, with pretty much the entire portside wall folding out into a private balcony.

MEDITERRANEAN DEBUT:

Built for an experienced yachtsman, Mondango 3 has been the talk of the South Pacific charter circuit since she launched from the Alloy shipyard in New Zealand in 2014. This summer will be her first Mediterranean charter season.

BIG YACHT, LITTLE YACHT:

My Seanna’s weekly charter rate includes the yacht’s 40-foot VanDutch tender. But the smaller yacht can also be chartered separately, complete with captain, stewardess and snacks prepared by the mothership’s chef.

NEW AND NOTEWORTHY:

LADY OF THE NIGHT:

Dama de Noche definitely has a come-hither name, and her interior is as seductive as they get. Oyster builds this model with large windows and high overheads, creating an open ambience.
