The Top 15 Luxury Yachts for Charter
Any great seaside destination these days include amazing yachts floating at a safe distance from the coast. There is no other luxury in the world of travel that equals spending time on a private yacht alone with the person you love, or with family and friends. Surprisingly, the choice of yachts to charter is rather large, which makes it important to define your needs well before you choose the one that will be right for you. In this list, you will discover the top luxury yachts, for all occasions.
How to Find the Right Yacht
There is a wide variety of yachts available worldwide to cater to your specific needs, with sizes ranging from 30 m to over 100 m. Whether you prefer elegant sailing yachts, high-performance motor yachts, or yachts with spacious decks and plenty of water toys, yacht rental is the solution you will want to choose. All you have to do is take into account these criteria when you search for a motor or sailing yacht: length, number of guests, and prices. But in terms of luxury, if you decide to choose one of the 15 yachts below, we can confirm that you won’t be disappointed.
Mikhail S. Vorontsov
We thought we would start this article with a sail yacht. There is something about their elegance that seems to touch the heart of everyone that sees them passing by at sea. The Mikhail S. Vorontsov is 65 m long and was built in 2013. She can accommodate 12 guests in five staterooms, with a crew of 10. This yacht won the “Spirit of Tradition” Award at the World Superyacht event, in 2014. Its full beam master suite and two VIP cabins are what attract customers most when they are looking for a sailboat.
If you are looking to impress, choosing Geco as your luxury motor yacht rental will certainly do the trick. Built in 2020, she features a futuristic look, with fluid lines. At a length of 55 m, she fits in nicely anywhere she goes. You can bring along 11 people excluding you, and they can stay in one of the six staterooms available. To cater to them, the boat also carries 13 crew members. She is currently available to rent for a cruise in the Adriatic, the Middle East, or the Mediterranean Sea.
When Rosehearty has her sails open, she almost looks like a speedboat. Every inch of her 56m length looks slick, and her elegance is noticeable from far away. The yacht can accommodate 12 guests in seven staterooms with a crew of 11. Although it was built in 2006, it got a refit in 2020 and now looks as fresh as the day she first sailed. Her wide deck space includes a side swimming platform, which guests love.
If you are looking to bring many of your friends to make them feel as if they are on a cruise ship, renting the Legend motor yacht is the right choice. Completely refit in 2021 (built in 1974), the Legend looks like a miniature version of a cruise ship. It accommodates 22 guests in 11 staterooms, with a crew of 28. No one will ever get bored on board, thanks to a spa and all the great amenities a superyacht like her can offer. She is currently available to navigate Northern Europe.
Not everyone can afford to charter the Moonlight II, as its weekly rent hovers around one million euros. But there is a reason why she is part of the most popular motor yacht in the world of the rich and famous: she lacks nothing. Inside Moonlight II, you will find a cinema, a spa, and a gym as well as two Jacuzzis. She can accommodate 36 guests in 18 staterooms and a crew of 36. If you can afford this motor yacht, there is no reason why you should choose another.
Let’s go from gigantic to small (everything being relative, of course). This 45m motor yacht is still a rental favorite today, even though she turned 15, this year. However, she was refitted on her tenth birthday, in 2008. Its stunning interior features maple and sycamore joinery, as well as high-quality marble. This is the perfect boat for those who like to live in total luxury and travel in small numbers (12 guests, six staterooms, and nine crew members). Did we mention that its sky lounge can be turned into a dancefloor?
Carpe Diem V
Many sailors are romantic people. The sensation of the wind in their hair, while at sea, brings them a powerful sense of freedom. To spend a honeymoon on the Carpe Diem V would certainly be a dream come true for them. Although this sailboat can accommodate 12 guests in six staterooms (seven crew members), there is no reason why two people could not enjoy it by themselves. She also offers a variety of toys, such as canoes and inflatables to add to the enjoyment.
From afar, the Falco Moscata almost looks like a Navy ship. Its metallic slick hulk gets her noticed, anywhere she goes. At 50 m, she is easy to maneuver into any port. With a crew of 10, and accommodating only nine guests in five staterooms, it is easy to understand the level of luxury that you will get once on board this unique motor yacht. But most importantly, her low impact on the environment makes her a favorite of those who like to keep our environment in good health, which is most people these days.
This motor yacht is the oldest on this list (1943 and refitted in 2015), which means it has a unique and beautiful long story. Since it can carry up to 157 guests for cruising purposes (34 sleeping), it makes it a unique choice for throwing a party or celebrating an important business or personal event. Its crew of 38 handles any special requests they may be asked, in order to make sure that nothing is missing during guests’ stays on the Christina O.
The Solleone is the perfect sail yacht, if you are looking to spend time close to other guests, as it stands at only 35m long. She shows clean lines and has wide decks and metallic grey sails. Built in 2015, it is a critically acclaimed charter yacht, which means that you need to reserve soon if you want to grab a hold of her in the months to come. She accommodates nine people in her four staterooms, with a crew of six. She currently sails the Western Mediterranean Sea.
Let’s continue with another small sail yacht. At 33 m, she is simply stunning. This is a great choice for those who love to feel the sensation of speed at sea. Its interior is elegant and comfortable, perfect for a family get-together (eight guests, four staterooms, and four crew members). You can enjoy sunbathing in the middle of the sea, or try to catch a few fish while relaxing in a way that you never knew was even possible.
Royal Falcon One
In our list, we haven’t featured a catamaran motor yacht yet. This unique-looking vessel was designed by Studio F.A. Porsche and leaves everyone breathless at first sight. In other words, she was built to impress, and she does. Royal Falcon One has space for 10 guests (in five staterooms) and carries a crew of 10, which shows the level of service that you will receive once on board this unique yacht for charter.
Are you one of those people who doesn’t like to look similar to anyone else? If that represents your personality well, it is probable that you will choose the Samata, when you decide to rent a sailboat. This traditionally designed wooden yacht sports a unique look that catches the eye. However, it fits perfectly well in its environment, as this sailing yacht navigates the South Pacific Ocean. It accommodates 10 guests in five staterooms and 14 crews.
Its name says it all, right? This is the kind of motor yacht that young hipsters just love to rent for a holiday filled with fun. It has been called sexy, chic, and also rock’n’roll by those who had the privilege of getting on board. This tri-deck yacht caters to the needs of 10 guests, thanks to its five staterooms. There are also nine crew members on board to make sure that everyone stays safe while enjoying themselves fully.
Let’s finish this list with a bang (not that the previous yachts weren’t all exceptional). The Victorious was the winner of the Robb Report Best of the Best and International Yacht & Aviation Awards in 2022. That in itself says it all. Its 200 square meter beach club featuring a swimming pool is part of the reason why. It also contains a hammam, a gym, a beauty salon, and a massage room. In the evening, the 12 guests can gather in the wine and cigar clubroom, which includes a fireplace, to chat about the events of the day. (featuring six staterooms and a crew of 24)
