Mediterranean Yacht Charter
A Mediterranean yacht charter transports you to a world of rugged landscapes, pristine beaches, cosmopolitan cities and quaint fishing villages. It’s a land as diverse as it is beautiful with its abundant sunshine and array of cultural sites. From Greek ruins and natural harbors to magnificent palaces and artifact-packed museums, the Mediterranean enjoys a well-established reputation as the center of the ancient world.
However, with chic beach clubs, designer boutiques and an enviable culinary scene, this corner of the globe is equally comfortable with modern life. Chamberlain Yachts provides you with a wide choice of charter yachts for all Mediterranean destinations. The Mediterranean yacht charter season runs from May until October with July and August as peak season. However, events such as the Cannes Film Festival and Monaco Yacht Show ensure that traditional shoulder season dates are also popular.
Whether you want to go island hopping in the Balearics, explore the nightlife of the French Riviera, or venture into the lush and mountainous interior of Corsica, Chamberlain Yachts provides yacht rental in the Mediterranean for all your holiday needs.
The French Riviera
The French Riviera is always in fashion and sophisticated celebrity hot spots like Saint-Tropez and Cap-Ferrat emphasize its timeless appeal. The Cote d’Azur officially launches the Mediterranean season with the Cannes Film Festival and Monaco Grand Prix, two glamorous events that are subject to international attention. World-class shopping and dining can be found along the coast in Monaco and beyond to even the smallest resort towns. Nice offers both substance and style with its atmospheric old town, cultural events and vibrant nightlife. When you tire of shopping and want to enjoy the jaw-dropping scenery, point your Mediterranean yacht charter in the direction of the medieval village of Eze, which is perched on a rocky peninsula; it’s an ideal place to drop anchor and swim in clear blue waters.
Italy offers all you could desire with its amazing archaeological sites, sun-soaked piazzas and internationally famous cuisine. Start at the UNESCO status Cinque Terre (‘Five Lands’), an incredible stretch of coast in northern Italy where craggy cliffs contain stacks of pastel-coloured houses and terraced vineyards. Sail down to the Amalfi coast and eat at waterfront restaurants that offer spectacular sunset views across the sea. The volcanic Aeolian Islands offer a unique experience as does the inviting Bay of Naples and the upscale island of Capri.
The Balearic Islands
No yacht charter in the Mediterranean would be complete without a trip to the Spanish Balearic Islands, a diverse archipelago. Mallorca is the biggest and suits all tastes with Palma’s historic town and a plush marina that is overlooked by a Gothic cathedral. The scenery along the mountainous north-western coast is rugged and blanketed with pine and olive trees. Ibiza is renowned for its super clubs and vibrant sunset bars but also has a secret quiet side of charming villages and Bohemian markets that celebrate art and traditions. The tiny island of Formentera makes a relaxing diversion and offers uncrowded Caribbean-style beaches.
Greece is an ideal Mediterranean yacht charter destination for island hopping. Its 14,000km coastline and 6,000 islands are an explorer’s dream. Surrounded by waters that blend from the deepest blue to completely clear, Greece’s golden sand beaches, ruins, white sugar cube buildings and tavernas leave an indelible impression.

Sample Seven Day Cruising Itinerary of The Balearics – Mallorca to Palma
A unique combination of jet-set glamour and gothic grandeur, exciting nightlife and quiet anchorages, these Spanish islands are sun-soaked and stunning. The medieval streets and cathedral of Palma mingle with chic shops, while Ibiza is all about nightlife and le club hot, but these islands also have prehistoric wall drawings and Bronze Age settlements. Away from the nightspots, you’ll find unhurried villages and a quiet lifestyle that is centuries old. Many of the best anchorages are in fjord-like calas-deep slashes into the islands framed by formidable cliffs that are often only accessible by water.
