Or, venture across the pond for a dose of winter sun; the Caribbean is home to wonderous cruising grounds, whilst the Bahamas is renowned for pristine cays, and Asia Pacific for off-grid exploration.

Crewed motor yacht chartering combines the service of an elegant hotel with complete freedom to explore amazing destinations, privately. Crews on luxury yachts are highly trained and dedicated to one yacht. Not only do crew maintain the boat, sail, cook, clean and navigate - they are experts in the region, after all, it is their job and passion to ensure your onboard experience is as memorable as the scenery outside.

Charter Destinations

In virtually every major resort and vacation port in the world, there is the possibility of chartering a luxury motor yacht. The majority of them, however, tend to come in clusters because they offer the infrastructure, attractions and itineraries that work well for crewed charters. Some of the major destinations are listed below.



French Riviera Monaco Motor Yachts

The French Riviera attracts more luxury crewed motor yachts than anywhere else. A unique combination of dazzling destinations such as St Tropez, Cannes, Antibes and Monaco and pockets of paradise such as the National Parks.

Superyachts in particular, are at home here, but you can find all shapes and sizes of luxury yachts in the South of France; including Manustas, Wallys and Rivas. The blissful climate and glamorous ports of the French Riviera, however, are only a short distance from the serene Italian Riviera - the perfect reason to extend your weekly charter.

Caribbean & Bahamas

Bahamas Jungle and Beach

Longing for a dose of winter sun? During the winter months, many of the world's greatest charter yachts make their way to the Caribbean, cruising from one island oasis to another.

Locations such as the British Virgin IslandsGrenadines and the Leeward Islands' St Barths, Antigua, St Martin, Anguilla are all high on the agenda - and a crewed yacht can take you to several on a single charter vacation.

Alternatively, embark on a sun-drenched charter under the Bahamian sun; the perfect remedy to a winter's chill, leaving Nassau to explore the paradisical Exuma Park; an archipelago of secluded atolls that pepper a 760-mile stretch of water.

Tempted? Start planning ahead to your next tropical winter escape.
