Temperatures in Monaco during September average 68 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Yes, this time of year is technically past the high season for a yacht charter itinerary along the Côte d’Azur, but it’s still great cruising weather for anyone who enjoys a comfortable breeze along with the sun’s rays. (Not to mention avoiding the prime-time tourists from Antibes to St. Tropez.)
The Monaco Yacht Show — where top yacht yards display their newest, biggest and most sophisticated builds — is scheduled for September 26-29. The timing is ideal for a charter before or after the show. Mediterranean waters are still warm enough for a quick dip, and low season has officially begun, knocking thousands or, in some cases, tens of thousands of dollars off charter yacht rates.
Of course, shopping for yachts is fun unto itself. But while the opportunity exists, why not also enjoy a relaxing reminder of what they’re built to do?
Making Her Charter Debut
New from Tankoa is the 236-foot Solo, which is scheduled to appear at the Monaco Yacht Show before heading to the Bahamas and Caribbean.
Yes, that is a spa tub, one of two in the guest areas aboard Solo, on the aft deck and abaft the sky lounge.
Other amenities include a helipad that converts to a dance floor, and a beach club with a glass-wall gymnasium and foldout terrace.
