With cruising becoming increasingly popular, the concept of exploring ‘unspoilt and hidden gems’ has changed. The ships that now resemble small skyscrapers, line the ports alongside half a dozen other similar sized ships, and passengers now find themselves disembarking alongside the population of a small town.
By chartering your own private yacht, you can return to the days where cruising was about discovering new destinations and getting away from it all. You get to create your own personal itinerary, as well as having the flexibility to amend the route if a specific place takes your fancy. If you happen to pass by an idyllic beach, a picturesque bay, or charming port, then ask the captain to drop the anchor. The captain and crew are there to ensure that you have the perfect charter experience.
There are an abundant of yachts that are available for charter, and as yacht brokers it is our job to find the one that meets your exact requirements. The newly launched Willow, a 42metre Benetti superyacht, is certain to be a popular choice, and is based in the Mediterranean this summer. With a range of 1,250nm, a cruising speed of 17 knots, and a top speed of 22 knots, she offers an opportunity to cover a wide cruising area for your charter.
