The east and west Mediterranean, which encompass some of the world's most renowned sailing sites, provides a rich mix of culture, wonderful cuisine, and stunning beaches. The sun-drenched Mediterranean and its breathtaking environment are well-served by many big international airports, making it suitable for short getaways or longer journeys.
A yacht charter in the Mediterranean offers a mix of bustling ports and secluded anchorages, picturesque villages and towns, historical architecture alongside modern five-star resorts and protected national parks, from the glamour and luxury of the Cote d'Azur to the turquoise waters of the Balearics and the ancient wonders of the Greek islands.
The Mediterranean, probably the birthplace of superyachting, has something to offer everyone and comes with everything you’d expect. From the glitz and glamour of Cannes, the party that never stops in St Tropez, the luxury of Monaco to the relaxed atmosphere and ancient history of the Greek islands.
The Mediterranean has it all, Michelin stars, UNESCO world heritage cities like Dubrovnik and the Amalfi Coast, high art, fine wine and dining, ancient ruins and beautiful coastlines.
