Motor Yacht Charters
Are you seeking a luxurious mega yacht charter, or a superyacht charter with silver service crew? In general, superyachts have a length overall from 100–200 feet. Mega yachts exceed 200 feet in length. Both usually accommodate up to 12 guests and represent the pinnacle of luxury yacht hire. Motor yacht charter is our industry term for yachts with a length overall between 65-100 feet. These yachts are great fun for speeding from port to port. With a shallower draft, they can access areas off-limits to larger yachts. The number of guests, desired location and budgetary considerations are all important factors in determining the ideal luxury yacht charter for you.
Sailing Yacht Charters
There are two types of sailing vacations; sailboat charter and catamaran charter. Sailing enthusiasts will tell you that nothing compares to a gorgeous day under sail. The ocean breeze caresses, the salt spray tingles your entire being. Sailing yachts will heel over in the wind, which adds speed and excitement. Catamarans have a very wide beam straddling two hulls. They are very popular for their expansive interiors and stability. Whether you prefer a sailboat or catamaran yacht charter, the experience is exhilarating and very romantic. Imagine gliding silently over the water, powered only by the wind. Your hull skimming the same currents as the intrepid mariners of bygone days. Sailing transports your soul.
Number of Guests, Number of Cabins
You will arrange your own group for your luxury boat hire. Accommodations are also an important consideration. Couples prefer a private stateroom, but kids enjoy bunking in Pullmans. Friends chartering together, on the other hand, usually prefer to have their own berth. Your Select Yachts charter broker carefully considers the yacht layout and cabin configuration before presenting a selection of available yachts.
