Best sailing yachts available to charter in the Mediterranean
The summer charter season is officially here, so if you’re dreaming of the Med, make sure you book up one of these fabulous sailing yachts before it’s too late
There are many reasons why the Med is prime yacht charter territory. Packed with well-resourced marinas, chic resorts with a short hop between, no-end of hidden coves and bays and historic sites to visit, you could easily spend weeks here without travelling too far. And all while sailing beneath cloudless blue skies, with azure waters so clear you’ll want to drop anchor and just dive right in.
From the French Riviera to the tavernas of Spain and the pretty-as-a-postcard Italian villages, there’s a timeless glamour to the region that you’ll want to take your time to embrace, and few motor yachts can rival the vintage appeal of a sailing yacht.
On a Med sailing yacht charter you can putter along at your leisure and enjoy considerably lower fuel costs compared with a motor yacht.
You can also enjoy near silent cruising safe in the knowledge that your charter is having a lower environmental impact than your marina neighbours, poke your nose into shallow waters or feel the exhilaration of performance under sail.
And if you're worried that a sailing charter means scrimping on the level of luxury you're accustomed to with motor yachts, then don't be.
On this, the largest high-performance ketch in the world, you can be assured of a smooth sail thanks to her pedigree Dutch build, while the master suite on the bridge deck comes with a private terrace, elevator and his and her bathrooms. When it comes to down-time, retreat to the beach club with its sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi, or take in the sea view from the Jacuzzi on the flybridge. And don't worry, you'll stay fully refreshed throughout thanks to the three outdoor bars.
New to the charter market, ASAHI had major rig work done as part of her 2019/2020 refit and is presented in immaculate condition. ASAHI has generous accommodation for 12 across six cabins, including a full-beam L-shaped master suite and a further two VIPs. Out on deck there's a large cushioned lounge area aft with Jacuzzi, and ASAHI's toy box is filled with everything needed to make the most of the Med's near non-stop sun, including two Fliteboard Efoil Pros, two Seabob F5S, an RS Aero sailing dinghy, kitesurf equipment and inflatables.
As its name suggests, the unique contemporary interior of this sailing yacht has lots of cool rock n' roll touches. There's also a full-beam salon with a skylight creating even more of a sense of space, while outside the large decks provide lots of space for relaxing and socialising, including a fore deck lounge with a members' club feel. The perfect place for a chilled-out after party.
A true sailor's dream, it's rare to find this level of comfort on a yacht of this ability. There's a Scandinavian theme to the uncluttered interiors, while the vast cockpit is ideal for long, lazy lunches. SHAMANNA's long-standing crew are passionate and experienced and will help you make the most out of the collection of SUPs, kayaks, waterskis and wakeboards or take you out for a whizz on the powerful Williams Sportjet 460 tender.
Talk to your broker and make this the summer you take the Med at your own pace aboard a stylish sailing yacht.
