Yacht charters in the Mediterranean: sailing yachts, motor boats, catamarans and superyachts, either bareboat or skippered, or even with an entire crew at your disposal. The Mediterranean is a yachting paradise due to its sheer size and incredible length of coastlines in various countries, from Italy to Spain, from Greece to France. Then there are the peaceful, lesser-known coasts of Montenegro, Slovenia, or the enchanting landscape of Malta; and countless archipelagos plus thousands of islands to explore in the Aegean Sea off Greece and Turkey. The Mediterranean has been ploughed by seafarers for millennia, whether for trade or exploration. Today, it makes a fantastic place for a holiday on board a sailing yacht or motor boat, revelling in utter freedom as you cruise from an anchorage to a little harbour, stop off to visit quaint villages and then set off again, sails unfurled. Its tranquil waters make it suitable for sailing almost all year round, and the region is known for its warm hospitality, delicious national cuisines, art and history.

What kind of licence do I need to charter a boat in the Mediterranean?
To charter a boat or catamaran in the Mediterranean you’ll need a boating licence that’s valid internationally, or a specific licence from the skipper’s country of origin. Naturally, many nations border the Mediterranean sea: Spain, France, Italy, Croatia, Greece and Turkey are the main ones, and each country has its own rules and regulations, which may differ slightly.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out if your licence is valid, for which countries and which length of vessel. We can also give you comprehensive information about any additional documentation required to ensure that your holiday is stress-free and as perfect as you imagined it. Alternatively we can provide you with a sailing yacht, motor boat or catamaran complete with a professional skipper, so that you can savour your private vacation alone, with family or friends without having to worry about handling the vessel yourself.
