Best Ways to Spend your Time on a Luxury Yacht Charter

There is no way more exclusive to see the world than on a luxury yacht charter. Imagine dining on the deck of your own private sailing yacht as the sun sets over the Isle of Capri. Picture yourself swimming in the Adriatic by your motor yacht before heading ashore to discover the medieval streets of Dubrovnik. Close your eyes and see yourself at the Monaco Grand Prix viewing the race from the deck of a super yacht moored beside the race circuit. If you’re looking for some inspiration, read our suggestions and be inspired.

1. Hire A Luxury Yacht For Top Events

Chartering a yacht for a world-class event is a superb opportunity to enjoy exceptional comfort on board and explore some of the most beautiful destinations in the world.

Step ashore for the Cannes Film Festival where the flashing paparazzi bulbs match the gleaming sheen of Champagne glasses at all the finest restaurants.  Enjoy four days of thrilling action at the Monaco F1 Grand Prix, with qualifying from the Thursday and race day on the Sunday, it is one of the most prestigious events on the global yacht charter calendar.

Corporate yacht charters for events such as Cannes Lions, MIPIM and MIPCOM are a great way to combine meeting spaces with entertainment; 212 Yachts can advise on catering, company branding or additional extras such as DJ’s for parties.

2.  Destination Hunting On Instagram

Instagram is a melting pot of luxury lifestyle and breathtaking photos of highly desirable luxury yacht charter destinations worldwide.  Simply search by hashtags such as #yachts, #superyachts, #yachting and #luxurytravel. Perusing these international profiles should whet your appetite for renting a yacht for your next luxurious vacation.

We particularly like these 10 yacht-related Instagram profiles:

3.  Delve Into Yachting Media & Publications

Many of the print publications for the yachting industry are aimed at yacht crews or packed with advertising not relevant to a charterer.

For a practical read on the best luxury yacht charter inspiration, we suggest Superyacht News. And we think the Monaco Yacht Show Summer Magazine is a perfect addition to a coffee table selection with easy readability and reviews of luxury exhibitors. Yacht Class is also worth mentioning. Their content is bilingual (English/French) and a good mixture of information about new builds, popular charter destinations and trends.


4. Get Insider Tips From Luxury Yacht Charter Blogs

Yachting blogs are an excellent way to find advice about the yacht charter process or search for specific information. For example, you may be looking for tips about booking crewed luxury yacht charters in the Mediterranean. Or what costs are additional for a sailing yacht charter in the Caribbean or what are the charter tax laws for Spain and Montenegro.

Feel free to browse our blog articles and if you can’t find the answer to your question, don’t hesitate to get in touch!   Some of our most practical blog articles include Cannes Film Festival Yacht Charters, Renting A Yacht For Monaco Grand PrixThe Benefits Of Using A Yacht Charter Broker and Yacht Charter Extra Costs.

5.  Discover Amazing Shore Excursions by Yacht

Renting a private yacht gives everyone on board a chance to discover untouched coastlines. Or explore historical cities, berth at exotic marinas and stay in different locations (every day if you wish!). Also there is enough time to relax, party, be active or try new cuisines.

Yacht charter planning involves an in-depth process of ensuring your experience is memorable from the moment you step on board.  We can find you the perfect sailing or motor yacht in key charter destinations including the Mediterranean, Caribbean as well as the South Pacific, South East Asia, Nordic countries and Antarctica.

We take care of all aspects of booking your yacht. Thus making sure your preferences are met whilst abiding by legal and maritime regulations. Therefore, your luxury yacht charter experience and feedback is vital to the success of our company!

For those times when you’re not at sea, we can suggest ideas for shore excursions. In the meantime, take a look at Google Arts & Culture (also available as apps on iPhone and Android). There are over 1,200 magnificent places of interest to satisfy keen cultural connoisseurs or those charter guests into casual jaunts ashore.

6.  Virtual Reality for Yachting

Virtual reality is a powerful storyteller. Both 360-degree and virtual reality videos can offer panoramic insights for life on board a yacht and immersive platforms for charter clients to experience a yacht charter destination before physically going there.

Check out Koncept VR for Condé Nast Traveler’s video of the stunning Cayman Islands. Or download Ascape on iTunes or Google Play where you can experience diving at the Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park off the west coast of Grenada. Also visit the South Pacific island of Samoa or wander ashore in Dubrovnik in Croatia.
