The West Mediterranean remains by far the most popular destination in the world for summertime crewed yacht charters, and plenty of bookings take place in the Bahamas as well. For summer 2024, charter clients also have options in New England, Scotland, Norway and Croatia—including at least one yacht being offered for the first time.

Starting closest to home in New England, Fraser has welcomed the 164-foot Christensen Chasseur to the charter fleet. This is a 2016 build that most recently was refitted in 2022, and that accommodates 12 guests in six staterooms. The master spans the full beam on the main deck, and there’s a full-beam VIP stateroom belowdecks. A wheelchair-accessible elevator serves all the decks. New for guests to use this year is a 2024 Intrepid tender.

For charter guests who want to head farther afield, Edmiston says the 200-foot Feadship Samadhi is offering bookings in Scotland and Norway. Samadhi is a 2006 build that is in refit now, with work expected to be finished by July. The yacht will have a heated swimming pool on the main deck aft, a refitted sky lounge, and a new spa with a sauna, cold plunge, massage space and hair salon. Accommodations are for 12 guests in six staterooms.

Meanwhile, in the Eastern Mediterranean, Fraser says the 184-foot Baba’s—the largest Hargrave built to date—is accepting inquiries for charter bookings in Croatia (in addition to France and Italy in the West Mediterranean). Baba’s is a 2020 build that accommodates 12 guests in six staterooms. Four of the staterooms have king-size berths, and the VIP is located on the sky lounge deck. An elevator services all decks.

Croatia and Montenegro are also on the itinerary this summer for charters aboard the 180-foot Rossinavi Taleya, which has joined the Hill Robinson fleet. A 2008 build that most recently was refitted in 2023, Taleya accommodates 12 guests in six staterooms.

Greece will also be the place to book the Overmarine Mangusta 105 Wet Panther this summer. Fraser says the 2006 build accommodates as many as 10 guests in four staterooms. Cruising speed is 25 knots for zipping around the Greek Isles at a fast clip.

Also in Greece is the Riva 110 Dolcevita Don’t Worry, which is now part of the IYC fleet. This just-delivered yacht is brand-new for 2024, with accommodations for 10 guests in five staterooms.
