Wondering why you should charter with us? Read on to find out what makes 212 Yachts unique. 212 Yachts is a bespoke luxury yacht broker company operating global yacht charters from its prime location on the gorgeous French Riviera. But we are much more than that.

Small team of native English-speakers

small team

We are a small, dedicated team of English (and French!) speakers with backgrounds in customer service, management and, of course, yachting (with ex-crew members making up some of our team). As a select group, we have been able to build strong professional relationships with members of the yachting community. Including captains, boat owners and other yacht broker agencies. In fact, our commitment to honesty and integrity entails that we are always happy to recommend other companies to clients in cases where we are not best suited to help. We have a number of local partners and contacts offering similar services in yachting.

Worldwide luxury yachts

Our base in Cannes, France has allowed us to culminate detailed local knowledge of the French Riviera (Nice, Antibes, Monaco etc.) But our expertise is not limited to the South of France. 212 Yachts has a global reach, with exclusive access to the world’s largest yacht database. We are a luxury yacht broker on the French Riviera, but we facilitate charters all around the world. And on some of the world’s biggest yachts. We charter out tenders, RIBs and yachts of all shapes and sizes.

Events Expertise along the French Riviera 


Our prime port location in Cannes is ideal in the organisation of charters for events in the South of France. The French Riviera is host to a number of glamorous world-renowned events, including Cannes Film Festival, Monaco Grand Prix and MIPIM. We plan charters for these events every year and are on hand during the madness to assist in any and all issues.

Bespoke Concierge Service

We provide a personalised service tailored to your needs. Whether it be making restaurant reservations, booking limousines or planning itineraries. All this to ensure you get the most out of your yacht charter. On the boats managed by us as an agency, including the highly sought after VanDutch 40 and VanDutch 55, we personally provide complimentaries and towels to ensure our guests are comfortable and happy.

Yacht Brokers Contactable 7 days a week

7 days a week

Unlike our competitors, namely the larger yacht companies, our office is open 7 days a week. We are contactable by telephone or by email. You can also pop into our office if you find yourself in the French Riviera! Furthermore, we can accommodate short notice bookings. Say you decide, quite spontaneously, you would like to charter a yacht tomorrow. Here at 212 Yachts, someone will be in the office on hand and ready to assist.

For our boat owners, we provide a guardianage service – including maintenance and upkeep – as quality control for all our direct fleet, ensuring a seamless process for owners.

Rapid Response Time

Another benefit of remaining open all week is that we have an unrivalled customer response rate. At heart, we are a customer-focused company, with our main focus being to ensure all our clients get the best possible charter experience. It is undeniable that yacht charters aren’t always plain sailing. Unforeseen circumstances, such as poor weather conditions, can affect the success of the trip. Having a team that is able to respond quickly and efficiently and deal with any problems that may arise is vital.

Thousands of satisfied customers
