The Mediterranean is the place to be on your luxury charter yacht in Europe over the summer months. From May to September the super-rich flock to the fashionable ports which line the French & Italian Riviera’s for the unique decadence and beauty the industry and the location has to offer.
At Navis Yacht Charter, we understand the importance of choosing the right itinerary and destination on luxury yacht charters, so here’s our pick of the most fashionable ports for this summer’s cruising in the Western Mediterranean.
The principality of Monaco may be small, but the blend of exclusive urban luxury, spectacular surroundings and timeless elegance can be found nowhere else. As you cruise into Monaco’s glittering harbour; enriched by a wealth of arts, culture and world-renowned cuisine, you will feel a special energy in the air. The harbour acts as a natural focus, where magnificent superyachts gather in an absorbing display of opulence. During the day there is shopping at the pristine boutique stores, sleek restaurants forgourmet lunches and as the sun goes down, the energy intensifies as chic bars fill with the glamorous and elite. With no signs of slowing down, Monaco is still embracing its decadence and remains top of our list of Western Med destinations this summer.
Cannes, with stunning beaches, two yacht filled harbours and world class hotels and restaurants, has all the features that a glamorous seaside town should have. Here you will find some of the most impressive and lavish superyachts in the world. Cannes is relatively tranquil for most of the year and conveys the relaxed feel of a beach resort. With the Cannes Film Festival each May the restaurants, bars, hotels, beaches and promenades fill up with the rich and famous from the movie industry. Cannes provides the perfect baseto chartera yacht, in the heart of the action.
Portofino was once a small fishing village and has only one road in and out, which incidentally is usually closed, allowing the area to remain unspoiled. Arguably one of the prettiest harbours out there, Marina di Portofino is exclusive partly due to the price which reaches 2500€ per night in high season. It has only 14 berths maximizing the privacy and therefore the exclusivity of the marina. Being that the port is so tiny, the likelihood of securing a berth is minimal so in most cases, you will anchor off your charter yacht and go ashore in your yacht’s tender.
The village of Porto Cervo is made up of high-end boutiques and designer, exclusive nightspots including the nearby infamous Billionaire nightclub. The most popular and expensive luxury superyacht marina berths in the Western Mediterranean can be found here. The village was originally built in 1959 by Prince Karim Aga Khan who made it a private retreat for his wealthy friends and family. The world's largest superyachts are often seen cruising in the surrounding waters.
Saint Tropez in the South of France has long been associated with the rich and famous. This French Riviera town has held the heart of jet-setters, models and celebrities for over 60 years. Its quaint charm has been largely kept with its narrow streets and old stone buildings. The marina doesn't actually allow superyachts over 70 metres, instructing them to drop anchor out of port. With classy beach clubs, nightspots teaming with celebrities and the annual Voiles de St Tropez taking place throughout August and September it’s a port you must visit on any luxury yacht charters with Navis Yacht Charter this summer.
