Why Choose Super Yacht Rental over a Luxury Villa?

This is a popular question asked by those with little super yacht charter experience, and a great starting point when considering super yacht rental. A villa offers a good luxury package, typically boasting well-equipped entertaining spaces, tasteful accommodation, tranquil leisure and work spaces, staff and proximity to an attractive holiday location. A great option for a luxury vacation.

But what about a super yacht charter? What can a super yacht offer that a super villa can’t?

Freedom. Escapism. Flexibility.

With super yacht rental, your imagination is your only limitation. There is no need to settle on one location to enjoy. Wake up somewhere new every morning, without even packing your suitcase.
