Why: Choose a Mediterranean Yacht Charter?

Mediterranean yacht charter vacations are always by far and away the most popular summer location. You can read hundreds of our client endorsements here . Think the French Riviera, Monaco, Italy, Croatia, Sardinia, Spain and Greece. This is where most of the large crewed superyachts are concentrated and this is where also where you will find a huge variety of interesting places and cultures to experience. The Mediterranean (or Med’ for short) has everything. The area covers a large diversity of countries, cultures landscapes and experiences. Yet, the fantastic thing is that they are relatively close together, so you can create convenient and action packed itineraries very easily. On top of this, the yachting infrastructure in Europe is second to none so there are dozens of beautiful marinas filled with beautiful private superyachts and mega yachts that can be chartered as well as all the shops, restaurants, bars and conveniences that you could need. Because of its popularity the Mediterranean has an incredible choice of charter boats available to rent, both motor (power) yachts and sailing yachts, including the ever more widespread large luxury private superyacht charters.

How Much Does it Cost To Charter a Yacht in The Mediterranean?

Mediterranean yacht charter prices vary according to the size, style and age of the yacht. Our luxury superyacht charter yachts rent from 30,000 Euro to over 1,000,000 per week, plus expenses, in the form of an advanced provisioning allowance (APA). Conversely, smaller 'all inclusive' type vacations cost between Euro 15,000 to 50,000 per week. Here is the full list of all the charter yachts and here are the current Mediterranean yachts with special discounted prices .

Timing & Weather: The Mediterranean Yachting Season

The Mediterranean yachting season generally runs from April to the end of October. During the height of the season, in July and August, the climate is warm and sunny and the winds tend to be light. While this is the high season for all tourism, you can still easily avoid onshore tourists while afloat. The weather can also be good during the shoulder seasons.

Tip: Shoulder Season Means Value & Choice

Another good time to charter your yacht is generally on either of the shoulder seasons from April-May and September-October. These periods fall each side of the main summer season when the temperatures are still comfortable. September, for instance, is an underrated time of the year because the weather is usually good (if not too hot) but the sea is at its maximum temperature which is ideal for swimming. At this time there is greater choice of berths and anchorages for your boating vacation and the onshore tourists are not present in their largest numbers.

Your Very Own Sailing Holiday Voyage of Discovery

Sailing over shimmering waters to destinations rich in history and natural beauty: what more could anyone want in a boating holiday? Famous sites from antiquity, white sand beaches painted on an azure ocean, quaint villages overflowing with cultural flavors, and culinary delights you will hunger for.

With its huge diversity of travel experiences, the Mediterranean has something to offer everyone who likes to go sailing. Italy, Greece and Croatia are the most popular cruising destinations, while there's much to enjoy about sailing in the Balearic Islands, Turkey and the South of France. All are covered in our comprehensive guide to Mediterranean yacht charters.

Taking the Work out of a Mediterranean Charter 

With all the great destinations on offer, choosing a charter boat in the Mediterranean can be complicated, even confusing. For smooth sailing, it is essential that you sail with an experienced and reputable boat operating company. During more than 20 years in the charter business, we have developed a network of only the best operators - people who we know can be relied on to take care of you, our client. We will match the right yacht from the best operator to your budget, comfort requirements and boat-handling experience.

Our team members have spent a lot of time sailing in the Mediterranean, checking out the boats on offer and the way they are managed. And of course that gives us first-hand experience of the destinations too, valuable knowldge that we want to share. 

In the Mediterranean, the suitably-able sailor finds bareboat sailing and boat handling quite straightforward. For extra leisure time, there's always the option of adding a skipper, who takes responsibility for the boat and getting you to where you want to go. 

Alternatively, charter fully-crewed, engaging a cook as well as skipper for the ulitimate in relaxation. Even experienced sailors often prefer to hire a crew, which we carefully select in consultation with our operators. Your hired crew not only take care of all the work, but are also willing local guides. They'll recommend the best places to see and best things to do en route, and get you up close to the culture and lifestyles in the places you will visit.

When enlisting our help to organise your charter in the Mediterranean -or anywhere else - you pay no more for our service.

The cost of a yacht charter in the Mediterranean with Northrop & Johnson starts at about $50,000 per week and will include the charter yacht and crew. You will then be charged for additional costs, including fuel, provisions, marina fees, and other expenses in your advanced provisioning allowance (APA). For larger and newer superyachts, you can pay up to $500,000 per week, not including the APA .

What is an Advance Provisioning Allowance, or APA?

The Advanced Provisioning Allowance acts as a bank account and is designed to cover expenses that cannot be fixed in advance, such as food and drink, fuel, and berthing fees. The APA is typically around 25 to 35%. of the yacht charter fee and is paid before the charter commences. The captain is responsible for logging all APA expenses, and you can view the expenses at any time during your boat charter. Any funds left in the APA at the end of your charter holiday are immediately refunded to you.

Where are the best airports to fly into to easily embark your charter yacht in the Mediterranean Sea?

Depending on your itinerary, these are some of the most accessible airports for easy arrival for your private yacht charter:

  • Nice Cote D’Azur Airport

What will the crew do for me on a Mediterranean superyacht charter?

Northrop & Johnson does not handle bareboat yacht charters. All our superyacht charters include a captain, or skipper, and a crew who will make your yacht charter vacation the best experience possible in the Mediterranean in the heart of Europe. A typical crew will include a captain, deck crew, interior crew, and a private chef. Additional crew may include a sommelier, personal fitness trainer, and beauty therapists. The exact roles of the crew will depend on the size and type of your vessel, but you can expect:

  • A captain who is responsible for navigating the yacht and ensuring that all safety regulations are followed
  • Deck crew who take care of the yacht’s exterior, including maintenance tasks such as cleaning, refueling the vessel, water sports activities, and more
  • Interior crew who provide five-star guest services such as serving meals, drinks, cleaning and maintaining the interior, including staterooms, laundry, and more
  • A chef who will prepare gourmet meals to your liking.

Ultimately, the crew will strive to make your experience enjoyable and stress-free by handling even the smallest details during your luxury yacht charter.

Can I decide which meals will be made onboard a yacht charter?

Yes, the menu is completely up to you. You and all guests will provide a preference sheet prior to embarking so the chef and interior crew can provision and have all of your favorites aboard the yacht.

“As a chef, I believe in using fresh, locally sourced ingredients to create unique and flavorful dishes that are tailored to my guests’ palate. I take pride in creating truly memorable dining experiences that are sure to please.” Chef onboard  a private yacht

We will handle everything from organizing the payments, the APA, and even the arrival and departure.

Do I sign a contract for a yacht charter in the Mediterranean?

When chartering a yacht in the Mediterranean, you will need to sign a charter agreement or contract. This contract will outline the terms and conditions of your yacht charter, including the duration of the trip and details of any additional services that you may require. The agreement will also stipulate how much you will be expected to pay in terms of the charter fee and may include other important information such as insurance policies, liability waivers, and maintenance requirements.

How can I pay for a yacht charter with N&J?

You will pay Northrop & Johnson directly for your yacht charter, including the APA.

lady m sailing yacht listed for auction

39m Fitzroy sailing yacht Lady M listed for auction with $5.5M minimum bid

The 38.9-metre Fitzroy sailing yacht Lady M is now available for bidding with G3 Auctions, an auction house based in Florida. A minimum bid of $5,500,000 has been set with a deadline for 24 August 2024.

Lady M 's last known owners were Scottish businessman Doug Barrowman and his wife Michelle Mone, a former Conservative peer at the House of Lords and the founder of lingerie company Ultimo.

The sailing yacht was delivered in 2006 to a design by the late Ed Dubois . Her original interiors were styled by British studio RWD , though H2 Yacht Design stepped in to redecorate during a major refit in 2022. Key numbers include a 8.3-metre beam, a volume of 170GT and a draft of four metres.

Accommodation is for a party of up to 10, comprising a king-sized owner's suite, a double cabin, a convertible twin with a Pullman berth and a twin cabin, also with a Pullman berth. There are further quarters for six crew. 

Leisure highlights include the upper saloon, which is filled with light through the wraparound windscreen and arranged with a bar and seating with a convertible table. Meanwhile, the lower saloon features twin sofa seating, a coffee table and a large television.

Stepping outdoors, the main cockpit is shaded by a Bimini and features two small tables that can be connected to form a larger dining area.

Another al fresco offering is the bow, scattered with beanbags and sheltered from the sun by a large awning. Deckchairs can also be laid out on the swim platform.

"Sellers engage my company because time is money. In a normal market, it can take years to sell a yacht, a jet, or a luxury home," G3 Auctions president Guy Masters told BOAT International . "This auction provides a level playing field where buyers submit bids based on what they think the yacht is worth."

G3 Auctions has valued Lady M at $11,2000,000. The yacht is lying in Montenegro, according to BOATPro 's fleet tracker.

The Ultimate Guide to Choosing Your Ideal Yacht Charter Service

A re you dreaming of gliding through the crystal-clear waters under the endless blue sky? Do you crave the freedom of charting your course across the open sea, with the only sound being the gentle slap of waves against your yacht's hull? If your soul yearns for the ultimate adventure on the waters, then a yacht charter service could be your beacon in the night.

It's not just the rich and famous who charter yachts anymore. The popularity of yacht rental Dubai has soared as more people seek to escape to the seas for a vacation that's a cut above the rest. But with the plethora of options available, choosing the right yacht charter service can seem as daunting as navigating the high seas in a storm. Fear not, as this ultimate guide will steer you towards selecting the yacht charter service that perfectly suits your needs and dreams.

Understanding Yacht Charter Services

Before you set sail, it's important to understand what yacht charter services are and the unique experiences they offer. A yacht charter is essentially renting a yacht for a period, along with its crew if you opt for a crewed charter, to explore your chosen waters.

From the Caribbean to the Mediterranean, and the Pacific to the Indian Ocean, yacht charters can take you virtually anywhere there's water. You can choose to relax and enjoy the pampering of a luxury yacht, or you might prefer the challenge of captaining your own course on a smaller, bareboat charter.

Types of Yacht Charters

Yacht charters come in various flavors, each tailored to different tastes and levels of experience.

Bareboat Charters

The purest form of sailing freedom, bareboat charters, are for seasoned sailors who want to be the masters of their destiny. You'll be responsible for the yacht's navigation, steering, and safety, and must possess sufficient experience and qualifications.

Crewed Charters

If you fancy a hands-free vacation where all you need to do is relax, eat, and explore, a crewed charter is for you. You can choose the level of service with a crewed charter, from a skippered yacht where the captain takes the helm, to a fully crewed luxury liner with chefs and waitstaff to cater to your every whim.

Luxury Charters

For the ultimate indulgence, luxury charters offer opulent accommodations, fine dining, and a service level that rivals the best hotels. These charters often include amenities like on-board spas, private beaches, and a fleet of water toys to play with. A dinner cruise Dubai offers an unforgettable evening of gourmet dining, unparalleled views of the illuminated skyline, and a unique perspective of the city's architectural marvels from the tranquil waters.

Factors to Consider When Booking

When you're ready to book a yacht charter, it's vital to consider the following factors to ensure you select the right service for your needs.

Your budget will largely dictate the type of yacht charter available to you. Remember to consider all costs, including the charter fee, fuel, mooring fees, food, and any extra activities or services you might want to include.

Destination

Where you want to sail is a significant decision. It could be a serene bay in the Mediterranean, a bustling port in the Caribbean, or a remote island in the South Pacific. Consider the season, too—some regions are best visited during specific months to enjoy the most favorable weather.

Yacht Size and Type

Consider the number of people in your party and the type of experience you're after. Do you want a sailing yacht or a powerboat? How many cabins will you need? A spacious catamaran might be perfect for larger groups, while a sleek monohull might be more fitting for a romantic escape.

Crew Expertise

The expertise and personality of the crew can make or break your charter experience. Research the charter company you're considering to ensure they employ skilled and congenial staff.

Top Destinations for Yacht Charters

The world is your oyster when it comes to yacht charters, and here are some of the top destinations that entice sea lovers from all corners of the globe.

The Exotic Whitsundays

The Whitsunday Islands in Australia offer a breathtaking array of coral reefs, white sandy beaches, and clear turquoise waters—paradise on Earth.

The Warm Caribbean Seas

The Caribbean has long been a favorite for yacht charters, with its myriad islands offering something for everyone, from the festive lifestyle of Saint Tropez to the tranquility of the British Virgin Islands.

The Rich Culture of the Mediterranean

Sailing the Mediterranean promises a blend of history, culture, and luxury. You can hop between the ancient ports of Greece, the chic French Riviera, and the rugged coastline of Croatia.

Preparing for Your Yacht Charter Adventure

With your yacht charter booked and your destination selected, the final step is preparation. Here are some tips to ensure you're ready for the adventure of a lifetime.

Plan Your Itinerary

While spontaneity has its charms, having a rough itinerary will optimize your time and ensure you don't miss out on any must-see spots or events in your chosen destination.

Pack Wisely

Space is precious on a yacht, so pack light, and pack right. Comfortable, practical clothing and footwear are a must, along with essentials like sunscreen, hats, and gear for water activities.

Know the Rules of the Sea

Familiarize yourself and your party with the sailing regulations of your destination. This will ensure a safe and legal voyage and help prevent any unexpected surprises.

By meticulously going through the selection process and diligently preparing for your voyage, you can turn your yacht charter into the adventure of a lifetime. Whether you're seeking the solitude of the open sea, the serenity of a remote island, or the sophistication of a coastal city, the right yacht charter is waiting to whisk you away to your watery dreams. Bon voyage!

Gary King Isn't Taking Accountability For His Actions (Is This The Reason Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 5 Hasn't Aired?)

Big brother 26: week 1 head of household (hoh) results (spoilers), pawn stars: austin lee 'chumlee' russell's legal issues explained.

Captain Glenn Shephard has been at the helm of Below Deck Sailing Yacht from the beginning, and his long-time Chief Stew Daisy Kelliher admitted he favors First Officer Gary King over her at the reunion. Gary and Daisy joined the Below Deck Sailing Yacht cast during season 2, and have an ongoing boatmance on the Parsifal III. Even though their relationship has been through its ups and downs on the show, they have proven to be great at their jobs.

The Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 4 reunion part 1 recently aired, with an unseen clip added on Peacock . According to the exclusive clip shared by US Weekly , the crew members from the Parsifal III had the opportunity to reveal their honest opinions about Captain Glenn.

When asked by host Andy Cohen if Captain Glenn favors the deck team, Daisy replied, “ I don’t think Glenn favors the deck team. I think honestly, it’s a natural thing in yachting. Glenn is more affiliated with the deck team. ”

Below Deck’s Daisy Says It’s “Okay” Glenn Doesn’t Understand Her Department

In the Below Deck franchise, it's common for the Captain to relate more to the deck team, especially since their jobs are similar. Because of this, Daisy stood by Captain Glenn's decision to favor the exterior crew over the interior crew. “ He understands it more. Honestly, I don’t think he understands my department and that’s okay. It happens across multiple industries ," she noted. Captain Glenn agreed with Daisy's statements after responding to Andy's question about if he knew what the stews do. “ I understand. I guarantee you Daisy has forgotten more about stewing than I will ever know. And I have a better idea of what Gary is up to. "

There is always a divide between the deck team and interior team on most seasons of Below Deck. Captain Sandy Yawn from Below Deck Mediterranean is often hard on the stews, but never criticizes the deck team. However, Captain Glenn doesn't have tendencies to micromanage his crew like Sandy does, and understands that all of his crew members have important jobs on the boat. Since Gary and Daisy have worked with him for three charter seasons now, he knows that their positions on the Parsifal III are valuable.

Now that Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 4 is coming to an end, the Parsifal III crew members were able to come together and discuss the season at the reunion. While the season involved a lot of drama and multiple love triangles, it still made for great television with its interesting charter guests and scenic destinations. If Gary, Daisy, and Captain Glenn decide to return for Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 5, Captain Glenn will be sure that he can count on them to do their jobs to the best of their ability.

How to Charter a Boat

If you want to sail off into the sunset, at least temporarily, you need to understand how to get aboard first.

This time of year, it’s an inevitable thought: Life would be that much better out on the water. Specifically, on a boat.

Even if you have neither a boat nor boating experience, it’s never been easier to make your nautical dreams come true — whether you want a day trip on your local lake or a fully staffed multiday voyage in a far-flung locale. Here are the initial questions that will help you plan an adventure on the water.

Whom are you traveling with?

Thinking about the size and dynamic of your group is an important first step, even if you are simply going on a day trip. Will children be on board? How old? What about elderly parents?

Dan Lockyer, the chief commercial officer of Dream Yacht Worldwide , strongly encourages travelers to determine group size — and, ideally, get people committed — before booking.

“The location that you want to go to, the time of year that you want to go, the type of boat that you want will entirely depend on the makeup of the group that you’re sailing with,” Mr. Lockyer said.

Do you want to captain, or do you want a captain?

Different charter companies specialize in certain locations, types of boats, itineraries and services. Some companies offer the opportunity for a “bareboat” charter, in which you rent the boat and take on the navigation and provisioning yourself, while others exclusively offer fully staffed options, including a captain and a cook.

If you want to captain the boat yourself, almost all outfits require some kind of proof of sailing or boating experience, often in line with local regulations.

Edward King, 45, an executive at a streaming company based in San Francisco, is experienced in sailing the city’s waterways. But on vacation, he said he would prefer to let a captain and crew take the lead.

Mr. King said he appreciates a captain who is familiar with both the local waters — “they’ll know how to avoid sailing into a certain sandbar,” he said, — as well as the local attractions.

In contrast, Matt Blake, 38, a software engineer based in Oakland, Calif., was eager to grow his sailing experience during a recent trip to La Paz, Mexico, with his fiancée. He hired a captain but made clear that the captain was there to help and teach.

Where do you want to go?

“Do you want something that’s more culturally oriented? Nature oriented? An adventure trip?” asked Mary Curry, the voyage product director of Adventure Life , which offers small group tours and private trips on land and on water around the world.

That answer can determine your destination. Popular cruising grounds include the Caribbean, Croatia, Alaska and French Polynesia, but the sky — or the sea — is really the limit. For help narrowing your focus, travel advisers often have relationships with charter companies or outfits around the world, and sailing publications offer recommendations.

Kyla Malkani, who has had experience with charters working as a destination wedding planner, recommends consulting the concierge of waterfront hotels, particularly for short-term or day rentals.

“A lot of times they will have either their own fleet or they will have some sort of connection at a dock,” said Ms. Malkani, 37, who is based in Washington, D.C., and is currently working as a content creator and freelance event planner.

What kind of boat?

Where you want to travel and for how long will likely determine the kinds of boats that are available to you. Crucial at this point, too, is an understanding of the boat’s layout and amenities.

“You definitely want to choose the right kind of boat,” said Ms. Malkani. “If you want more adventure, a sailboat is nice. If you’re looking for a luxury party environment, a yacht is best. And if you’re looking for something smooth, for older people or with kids, a catamaran is great.”

David Barclay is a luxury travel adviser who has also chartered boats for his own vacations.

“You want to match what the travelers want to what the boat offers,” he said.

Perhaps a group of friends might not mind a catamaran with functional but not luxurious marine bathrooms, but a multigenerational group might prefer more high-touch amenities.

When should I book?

Often, charter trips are once-in-a-lifetime experiences that require a great deal of advanced planning.

“You may have a specific place you want to go, or a specific time of year you want to travel,” said Mr. Barclay. “And some places just aren’t good at certain times of year.”

Naturally, you don’t want to be at sea in the Caribbean during hurricane season, or in the Mediterranean during winter storms. But you also might want to avoid peak cruising seasons, too.

The first three weeks of August are quite popular, said Mr. Lockyer. “If you have some flexibility and can travel in early July, you’ll get the same sort of great weather, a greater selection of boats and the anchorages won’t be as crowded.”

How much does it cost?

Charter costs are incredibly variable, dependent on all of the factors coming into play: your boat type and size, your destination, your group size, the amount of crew you’d like and the amenities on board. That said, costs could range anywhere from $2,000 for a day on a sailboat to hundreds of thousands of dollars for a multiday mega-yacht charter. Have a budget in mind when beginning your research process.

What if I didn’t plan far in advance?

While advanced planning is encouraged, and often necessary for bigger boat trips, it’s possible to book a boat last-minute.

Boatsetter , an Airbnb-like platform for boats, is a good resource for last-minute bookings, especially for day trips, and even has an Instant Book option for down-to-the-wire bookings.

“If it’s for a special event, or around major holidays, you may want to book a month or two in advance. But for general bookings, you can find options within a week or two,” said Kim Koditek, Boatsetter’s head of brand strategy and communications, of the company’s overnight offerings, which appear on their platform under the luxury yacht charters category .

Ms. Malkani has used Boatsetter for some of her charters, most of which have been booked with a specific goal in mind.

“I’m a sunset chaser,” she said. “My husband and I just really love being on the water, and we always try to squeeze in some sort of boat day activity when we’re traveling.”
