Mediterranean is the prime destination for super yacht charters and luxury crewed sailing holidays. South of France and St Tropez are the birth place of everything in relation to luxury crewed charter and super yacht hire as well as super yacht ownership.
West Med and South of France:
Since Bridget Bardot and the film crew landed on one of the beaches where Club 55 is based today, nothing was the same. Portofino in Tuscany, Costa Smeralda in Sardinia and Isola di Capri across the Amalfi coastline are the next best super yacht locations. Porto Vecchio in Corsica, Mallorca and Ibiza in the Balearics, Dubrovnik in Croatia, and increasingly Bodrum peninsula in Turkey and Tivat in Montenegro are the next ones on the list.
Greece is a super yacht charter destination in its own right, with probably the biggest number of super yachts being based across the Saronic Gulf and in the Ionian. There are dozens of perfect super yacht charter itineraries across the Mediterranean. End of July and first couple of weeks of August are the absolute best and most desired charter periods in this region. If you have not visited Port of Hvar in Croatia, Venice in Italy or Monaco during this period, you better make urgent plans to do so. Otherwise you will miss out on celebrity partying and will have to wait 12 months for your next opportunity.
Peak season – End of July and first three weeks of August
Best time to go – July and August, late June or early September for families

Ms Couradon chartered a 75' luxury sailing yacht in South of France. The boat was delivered to Nice for an easy embarkation close to the airport and without any extra fees. The charter went perfectly and the party found sailing to be a refreshing experience given the family owns a 60' motor yacht.
