Travelling by a superyacht or a mega yacht is an experience like no other. The freedom and exclusivity are not to be compared with anything else, and with excellent crew and knowledgeable captains, you will be able to wake up to a new destination and amazing view each day, while being pampered and taken care of as a prince and princess. Dedicated chef, on some yachts also a personal trainer, a masseuse, and on request a nanny or concierge or now even a mentor or a cornerman, can be hired to ensure that every single moment of your vacation time is well-planned, perfectly executed and harmonised with your expectations.

ROCKET ONE, 120ft superyacht charters in both South of France as well as the Bahamas

Choosing a yacht
One of the most important choices to make, before going on a luxury yachting holiday, is to choose a suitable yacht. Many classics, older but refitted boats or in general any kind of superyacht, or especially a megayacht, are certainly great options. The superyacht charter market in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, in particular the Bahamas is saturated, so much so that one can have a good choice, especially if boats are booked 6 months in advance at least. However, to be in with the latest trends, designs, even feng-shui at times, choosing the latest models launched this or last year is the only choice for some. This blog therefore looks at superyachts or megayachts launched recently and available for private yacht charters during the summer season 2023 and the winter season 2023/24.

M/Y TOGETHER, San Lorenzo’s sublime superyacht to be based in Naples, Italy

New Yachts suitable for parties of 10 guests
First, most such yachts are for some specific reasons mostly available in the Bahamas. One of the rare megayachts, recently launched and available for charter is M/Y RISING DAWN. And while a number of other boats, such as the PROJECT X, the 88metre Golden Yacht with 28 crew on board (from 1,1 million US$’s/week) and 74.85metre long KENSHO, launched by Admiral – The Italian Sea Group, with 20 crew on board (from 850,000 Eur/week) are probably the biggest, they are typically seen as gigayachts reserved for only the richest amongst the UHNWI 1%. As a result they cannot feature in this blog but can get a deserved mention as probably the most luxurious NEW yachts on the charter market in 2023. Going back to RISING DAWN, she is usually available in the Bahamas and charters from 200,000 US$’s per week. Accommodating up to 12 guests in 6 cabins, she will also accept charters in the East Caribbean, including Virgin Islands on request. This Gulf Craft Majesty 140 has 4 double and 2 twin cabins and is ideal extended family gatherings, anniversaries, special occasions or 4 x couples getting together to share a megayacht charter experience.

Winner of several prestigious awards, Majesty 140 features fold down balcony, SkyLounge and 9 crew

M/Y PRINCESS MELDA, a custom built 137ft is next in line and she mostly cruises in Turkish Mediterranean Sea. On request available in Greece, this superyacht also features 6 cabins for 12 guests and charters from 110,000 Eur per week. She is not as exclusive as 60-metre megayacht COME TOGETHER, launched by Dutch shipyard Amels which charters from 450,000 US$’s per week (also available for sale from 69,5 million Euros), or even M/Y NORTHERN ESCAPE, the Benetti 40.8-metre megayacht with 8 crew and available from 215,000 Eur/week, yet is an impressive superyacht worth considering by anyone looking for good value new boat in East Mediterranean.

Plenty of watertoys are on board of PRINCESS MELDA, the 137-ft custom superyacht based in Turkiye

Similarly exclusive and as new as the Princess Melda is the sublime ROCKET ONE. Another NEW Majesty by GulfCraft shipyard, this 120ft superyacht charters from 175,000 US$’s per week and spends her summer in Monaco, while cruising South of France and others parts of the West Mediterranean with a plan to head to the Bahamas during the winter months. Featuring 4x Queen sized cabins and 2 twins, she also accommodates more than 10 guests comfortably, although twin cabins are ideal for singles or teenagers. Cruising at 12kn, she can also hit higher speeds of 20kn and therefore offer ideal itineraries between Portofino on Italian Riviera and St Tropez alongside Cote d’Provence, allowing full exploration of Cote d’Azur beach clubs during what will ideally be a 2 week exclusive superyacht rental amongst the most famous coast in the world. Both Princess Melda and Rocket One can be classed as mega yachts too as their volume, charter rates, features and crew fit into both high-end superyacht range and lower end megayacht range.

Genuine new superyachts
A number new superyachts will be cruising this year both the Mediterranean and the Caribbean as well. If not the best, one of the most exclusive of them all is certainly M/Y TOGETHER. Launched by San Lorenzo shipyard, this 117ft superyacht features 5 guest cabins, 3 of which are doubles and is run by a crew of 6. Chartering from 110,000 Eur/week she will be ideal for extensive cruising of Amalfi coast first and foremost. Islands such as Capri, Ischia and Procida will definitely be en route and one way cruises to Aeolian archipelago or Sicily will be considered most likely.

Italian shipyard SAN LORENZO manufactures extremely stylish, modern and exclusive superyachts

A number of other superyachts, yet to be launched this year, or cruising since last year, are placed nicely in this range too. Some of them are ROMEO FOXTROT, the 116ft Hargrave built in the USA and available in the Bahamas from 160,000 US$’s per week or 110ft FREEDOM, built by HORIZON shipyard and to be in charter out of Miami in Florida or Newport, Rhode Island. FREEDOM charges rom only 100,000 US$’s per week w hich makes her one of the best value new superyachts on the charter market today. This is clearly visible in direct comparison with ROMEO FOXTROT as they are of similar size, almost identical cruising speed and both accommodate 10 guests in 5 well designed staterooms. Add to this amazing array of water toys and fast, as well as very luxurious superyacht tender and FREEDOM suddenly turns into an absolute bargain when it comes to superyacht charter value.

M/Y FREEDOM – 110ft Horizon superyacht with her superyacht tender and numerous water toys.

When it comes to a superb value, or indeed a fantastic deal, OCEAN VIEW, yet another Gulf Craft Majesty model is certainly worth mentioning. Chartering from only 90,000 US$’s per week, she too cruises in the Bahamas during the winter months and in the West Mediterranean in the summer. At 104ft, with very modern and minimalist interior as well as absolute maximum daylight in the interior due to full length, floor to ceiling glass windows and light materials used, she is a top notch recommendation. For those keen on long-term yacht charters on board of a superyacht or extended sabbatical holidays with professional crew, she is one to consider.

Custom built 85ft superyacht SIMAY M charters from only 21,000 Eur/week in Turkiye, East Med

In terms of Transatlantic crossing, the range on most of these superyachts is sufficient to take them across comfortably. As a result, some will also consider a special Atlantic crossing deal in late October or early November, en route from East to West or in April and May en route West to East. Why wouldn’t you consider going across one year and achieving a big goal once in your lifetime ? MAREA LA NAUTICA, the 88ft Azimut launched in 2022 and chartering from 80,000 US$’s per week, or PEARL, the super-exclusive San Lorenzo’s 96ft-er, both cruising around the Bahamas and Exumas, are some of other new motor yachts accommodating 10 guests and that are launched in last 12 months. However, despite a number of other such yachts in many regions across all major sailing destinations, the lowest priced and in some way absolute best value is SIMAY M, custom built 85ft superyacht cruising in Turkiye which is available from only 21,000 Eur/week. Accommodating up to 10 guests and cruising at 10kn, she is lovely looking modern boat with great facilities, excellent crew and superb, probably best value amongst all superyachts launched in the last 12 months and chartering to general public.

OCEAN VIEW master suite – sublime minimalist interior with excellent daylight and panoramic views

Whatever your choice of a superyacht, megayacht, or even a gigayacht if desired and affordable, there are a few NEW such yachts launched in 2022 or 2023 and ready and available for private yacht charters. They are mostly based in the Caribbean during the winter months or in the Mediterranean, sometimes in the Indian Ocean or Australia and East Coast of USA during the summer months. You can rely on SuperSailYachts as your exclusive broker to source out the best and newest yachts, thus hopefully this blog will have given you ideas where to start your search.

NEW Sunreef catamarans, launched in the last 12 months and which charter in 2023!

When it comes to most popular charter yachts, luxury boats and superyachts, there is only one name at the moment. Sunreef Yachts. Fountain Pajot and Cata Lagoon as well as a few other niche brands do play a part in the market, yet on a superyacht level, other than a Lagoon 77, nothing much is of major interest. The 145ft Hemisphere remains the only megayacht amongst catamarans, yet she is the lone player as for now no other 100ft+ super cats are available for charters. And while recently announced Sunreef 100 Eco, a sustainable super cat with electric engines, composite-integrated solar cells and the best marine superstructure worldwide, is not yet launched, similarly exclusive, stylish and prestigious catamarans are already cruising within the hotspots of the most interesting sailing destinations.

RELENTLESS II 80 – The best even SUNREEF 80 super cat chartering in the Virgin Islands

Take for example RELENTLESS II 80, a sublime Sunreef 80 which is usually cruising the Virgin Islands. Permanently based in St Thomas, USVI’s and available from just above 90,000 US$’s per week on an all inclusive basis, this is the most desirable supersailyacht available for private charters at this moment in time. And while strict covid-19 rules apply to all guests, with vaccination being a must, the design of this boat simply leaves no room for exclusions. Professional masseuse takes care of the times when you need extra attention and when mental health may need a boost, chef pampers you and keep you perfectly fed, as one guest put it, and crews knowledge of the islands, their energy, kindness and knowledge are second to none. Where else can you get a perfect Michelin star lunch served on board to enjoy both the food and perfect view and just after you had a massage or before you head to the water to enjoy spectacular snorkelling experience? This can only be available on a supercat such as RELENTLESS II 80 and at a rate of 100,000 US$’s all inclusive for 8 guests it’s a steal. If you add an opportunity to fly with owners private jet, albeit at an extra cost and enjoy rain showers on deck, after an exhaustive exploration of islands while sailing, water skiing and swimming and than being pampered by what industry may call best crew in the superyacht industry and you will want to return very soon indeed.

OHANA’s dining on Flybridge – one of the most exclusive and newest Sunreef 80 sailing catamarans

Similarly exclusive are two other Sunreef 80’s. One is OHANA, the same type of a super cat sailing boat and the other is PRONTO, a 78ft power cat based on Paradise island within the Bahamas. The differences between OHANA and RELENTLESS II 80 are minimal, yet at the same time huge. Both are as exclusive as a Sunreef 80 sailing catamarans can get, with OHANA being based in the Virgin Islands, featuring a hot tub, 4x guest cabins, similar charter rates as RELENTLESS II 80 and much more. OHANA may even go a step further with 2x seabobs on board and scuba diving equipment for those keen on diving directly off the boat. With accommodation for 10 guests in 5 cabins, she can also be seen as better value.

As some superyacht charter parties may prefer to cruise at faster speeds and be pampered by an extra crew member, wouldn’t PRONTO be the way to go? With 2xV8 MAN 1200HP engines offering double the cruising speeds of sailing catamarans and carrying what can only be described as a proper superyacht chase boat, the 37ft Axopar Sun Top as well as a SeaDoo GTX Waverunner, the PRONTO takes exclusivity of super cat luxury to yet another level. What other boat will offer such a modern, prestigious, exclusive and spacious environment allowing you to explore the Bahamas and Exumas during your regular Thanksgiving sailing getaway or New Year yachting party ?

Mediterranean based super cats and Sunreef Yachts:
When it comes to the Mediterranean, sailing on Sunreef yachts gets even more interesting. The choice of Sunreef catamarans is greater; itineraries even more historic, exclusive and diverse. VIVA LA VIDA, a NEW Sunreef 80 based in Sardinia or the Balearic’s is the go to get super cat. Charter rates start from 70,000 Eur with local VAT adding a minimum of 20-24% with all expenses on top. Not very economical for sure, yet at this super cat level, nothing is out of ordinary and VIVA LA VIDA is not to be missed if you are keen to party in Ibiza or shop in Porto Cervo.

AGATA BLU – 75ft super cat launched in 2023 and available in East Mediterranean

In case you would need to accommodate 10 guests, I am sure we can arrange one of the other Sunreef 80’s launched in 2020 or 2021 and which have such a layout. There are at least two such catamarans around indeed. If you still prefer latest 2022-23 models, AGATA BLU in Greece is the way to go. Available from only 54,000 Eur (plus VAT and APA) she is a great value 75ft supercat. Her superyacht crew of 4 will usually take you on a one way cruise from Athens – Mykonos with optional stopover on Santorini for those fabulous sunsets and mesmerising views. STILL ALIVE, another Sunreef 70 (2022) model is even more flexible, as they will cruise both the Caribbean waters, usually between the Grenadines and St Barths, as well as the Mediterranean, most likely Italy or Sardinia and Corsica regions. Whichever Sunreef 70 super cat you choose; will ensure you get the best value, great service and top notch attention at all times. At least we would like to think so; wouldn’t you !?

Exclusive aft deck on board of YGO – The latest Sunreef 60 cruising the West Mediterranean

Luxury Sunreef Catamarans:
Not every yacht is a superyacht or a super cat. Alegria 67’s by Fountain Pajot, NEW Lagoon SIXTY 5’s and well maintained older Lagoon 620’s or Samana 59’s do offer more of a competition to Sunreef 60’s in this range however. YGO and YLIME are newest SUNREEF 60’s, both usually cruising the West Mediterranean and offering accommodation for up to 8 guests in 4 en suite cabins. Absolutely the most popular luxury sailing catamarans on the planet, these are great value de-luxe charter boats in everyone’s book. The looks, designs, colours and space on board of these exclusive multihulls are unbeatable. If you are keen to impress and be impressed at an affordable rate on a luxury yacht that may not be a superyacht, but is definitely a prestigious and luxury platform for your yachting experience, these are the boats to turn to. All-around sailing leisure yachts, with completely refreshed superstructure that offers recognisable high bulwarks and classy exterior lines, these charter yachts underscore the modern lifestyles on the water. Buyers of such new vessels can enjoy outstanding options when it comes to customisation, and in order to make their boat as unique as it gets. With 36m2 room, the spacious flybridge is the piece de resistance on these boats and when cruising, most clients will simply want to enjoy vistas provided from these elevated and unique platforms. Join them and charter one of the Sunreef 60’s in 2023 too !

Finally, the smallest amongst the exclusive Sunreef yachts line up are Sunreef 50 sailing catamarans. SWEET DREAMS and ZARA are the latest models, both cruising the Southern Adriatic shores, islands and coastlines. One way charters between Dubrovnik and Split will be the most interesting itineraries with islands such as Hvar, Korcula and Brac having the most interesting anchorages, peaceful bays and busy stopovers. Where else can you enjoy a luxury of a Sunreef styling, Dalmatian spirit and fine dining than on board of one of these de-luxe sailing catamarans ? If you are keen on a long-term charter and sabbatical sailing holiday, renting a Sunreef catamaran for 4-8 weeks before deciding to purchase one is the way to go for sure and both these lend themselves as perfect options to do so. We invite you to consider transatlantic crossings on one of the Sunreef yachts too, as in all sizes we can offer such experiences with start in the Canary islands, around the start of November each year, and arriving in St Lucia or Martinique 3-4 weeks later. The charter rates vary but in general start from around 60,000 Eur and can go as high as 125,000 Eur plus any VAT and APA per crossing.

NEW Sunreef 50 SWEET DREAMS chartering in the Croatian Adriatic

To charter any of the Sunreef catamarans, including super cats such as SUNREEF 80 or luxury boats such as Sunreef 60, you can always rely on who will also guide you in creating a unique sailing itinerary, bespoke alergie-free menu and with exclusive on shore excursion tips not available anywhere else. We can also arrange purchase of any new boats directly from the shipyard and this includes newest Sunreef 80 Eco, Sunreef Eco 100 and Sunreef 140 models, all of which can be customised and bought with a suitably negotiated discount.
