GLAMOUR IN THE MED During the summer cruise the Mediterranean by luxury yacht and visit the No. 1 hotspots like Saint Tropez, Cannes and Monaco, all in the heart of the French Riviera. In Saint-Tropez you can explore the fashion scene and the renowned clubs like Cave du Roy or VIP Room. Then there’s the honeypot for the world’s movie stars, Cannes, a sybaritic heaven and mecca of sun worshippers for over 150 years; and further glamourized by the success of the film festival. When it comes to glitz and glamour, Monaco has it all from chic boutiques to the famous Casino. Monaco sits on a broad, steep peninsula that bulges into the Mediterranean and at its heart, Port Hercules sparkles with luxury yachts. Or you can cruise along to the quieter Italian Riviera, dotted with beautiful hillside villages just waiting to be explored. Portofino, one of the most photographed villages along the coast, with a decidedly romantic aura, has long been a popular destination for luxury yacht charters. It’s a postcard scene where time slows down as you stroll around the small harbour, the castle, Punta del Capo, the boutiques and then sip a coffee while people watching. Both regions offer the most sumptuous and freshly made cuisine, if you can bear to tear yourself away from your personal chef… Wherever you choose to go, the Mediterranean has a lot to offer, why wait to explore?

OFF THE BEATEN TRACK If you don’t want to follow the crowd a luxury yacht enables you the possibility of getting away from it all and cruising to lesser known destinations. Cruise to the Galapagos to discover some of the world’s rarest animals, head to New Zealand and marvel at the wonders of Mother Nature or explore the Antarctic if you truly want to go where few have been before.

Charterers may choose to book the yacht for a longer or shorter period, although some yachts will not accept shorter bookings during the peak season. what can we do on board? Relax and enjoy yourself while the crew tends to your every whim. All yachts offer a range of facilities such as toys for fun on and under the water, plenty of sunbathing options, games or movies and fine dining from your personal Chef.
