Luxury crewed yacht charter holidays and super yacht charters are indeed very expensive. As a result, many a yacht charter clients are keen to get the best price or indeed the largest boat for a set budget.
Waiting lastminute to ensure such a deal is therefore not only desired but a strategic plan. This may turn very complicated at times, even if a suitable mega yacht will be found at the very last moment, not least as the super yacht crew many not have sufficient time to prepare for all the requirements of a luxury yacht charter.
In case you are looking for a specific size of the boat (ie. 30m) that is also of specific make (ie. Wally) and where possible available on an exact or preferred route between Portofino and St Tropez, for a period of 2 or 3 weeks at the end of July and first couple of weeks of August, finding such a super yacht on a lastminute basis may be very difficult. We would probably suggest such specific requirements to be discussed at least 3 months and where possible 6 months before yacht charter embarkation. In case your requirements are less specific, and you can also settle for another 100′ yacht ie. Oyster or Southern Wind, with route not specified in advance but decided on a very lastminute, making the enquiry up to 1 month before yacht charter start could be a realistic enquiry.
Whatever your luxury crewed yacht charter plans, requirements or ideas are, do share them on time however. Even if you are keen lastminute yacht charter client, discussing options a couple of times before maybe giving you a good insight into what deals are available months before and if indeed some are of interest. It won’t cost enquiring and it could save a lot of money indeed.

Luxury Dining is a major part of any super yacht charter experience. While any super yacht will have a professional chef on board, sailing in a new destination would not be as great an experience without hopping from island to island, from anchorage to anchorage and sampling local food, served in privately owned and managed restaurants, most of which have their own moorings, gardens where home-made food is grown and fabulous dishes served only there and its most original form.
Held last weekend of May, this most prestigious F1 Grand Prix race attracts numerous super yachts to Monaco.
Fully booked as always, the event attracted the most distinguished persons in racing and F1 circuit every year.

The double win was not welcomed by all team members as there was a clearly visible discord amongst the Lewis Hamilton fans.
