Mediterranean Yacht Charter
Explore some the the world's most beautiful and vibrant charter destinations
The Mediterranean region is both the geographic and cultural thread that weaves together Southern Europe, Western Asia and Northern Africa. Arguably one of the most historically significant and richly diverse areas of the world, it’s also stunningly beautiful. And there’s no better way to experience all the sights than with a Mediterranean yacht charter.
Secluded beaches, ancient ruins, exquisite cuisine and even rowdy parties await you on a trip you’ll never forget. With a past reaching back thousands of years to the origin of the Mesopotamians and Phoenicians, the Mediterranean gives you a feeling of both timelessness and significance. Apart from the history and unique sights, the turquoise waters and white-sand beaches have an undeniable lure that will have you craving the sight and feel of them. Spend as much time as possible enjoying your time on a Mediterranean boat charter because you’ll never want to leave.
We at Worldwide Boat feature a large fleet of vessels, from super- and mega-yachts to classic sailing vessels, which you can book.

Top Destinations for Mediterranean Yacht Charters
With hundreds of miles of beautiful coastline to explore and a diverse range of cultures to experience, deciding where to go in the Mediterranean is no easy task. We can take you almost anywhere you want to roam, but we particularly recommend France, Italy and Spain in the Western Mediterranean:
- France – Glamorous and gorgeous, the French Riviera – or Cote d’Azur – has a reputation for attracting jetsetters, movie stars and British Royalty. Over 300 days of sunshine grace the lovely seaside cities of the French Riviera, such as Nice, Frejus and Monaco. The Cannes Film Festival draws cinema elite from around the world and St. Tropez is acclaimed for its clothing-optional beaches and annual superyacht regatta.
- Italy – The Italian Riviera is peppered with charming seaside towns and picturesque vistas. The Amalfi Coast is one of the most famous areas to visit, including the island of Capri. Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean and is home to both world-class beaches and ancient ruins of Greek temples and Norman castles. For oenophiles, it also produces some of the best wines in the world. Sardinia is another incredible island on the Italian Riviera that’s visited by yacht charters to the Mediterranean. It offers both pristine beaches and fascinating relics from the island’s ancient nuraghic culture.
- Spain – Spanish Mediterranean destinations give travelers a variety of experiences, from quiet corners of paradise to non-stop parties. Majorca, the largest of the Balearic Islands, is a fascinating contrast of environments: sheltered bays with bright-white beaches, wooded mountains and olive groves. Another island whose reputation may precede it is Ibiza. While famous for its crazy nightlife, it’s also home to four UNESCO World Heritage sites, including a Phoenician-Punic necropolis.
Why Charter a Yacht in the Mediterranean?
A Cradle of Civilization
The body of water the Romans called “mare nostrum” (or “our sea”) is full of historical landmarks important to all of modern Western civilization, from the basilicas of Italy to the earliest churches and monasteries of France and Spain. It’s an architectural goldmine and an inspiration to those who visit. You can take to the shores and wander ruins where some of the greatest philosophers and leaders of the ancient world roamed.
World-Celebrated Food and Wine
It’s no secret that most of the cities, towns and villages bordering the Mediterranean Sea are famous for their cuisines. The ideal climate has always made the region perfect for wine-making, and the history of this practice goes back thousands of years. Legendary wines such as the Sassicaia and Ornellaia from Italy, or Bordeaux from France, are a must-taste for grape lovers traveling in the Mediterranean.
You can have an amazing meal at a little restaurant in Italy or France, then have the next meal catered aboard your luxury Mediterranean yacht charter. Fresh caprese salad, sweet pastries, tasty croquettes – prepare to give your palate a culinary revolution on this trip.
Luxurious Beaches and Crystal Seas
Aside from all of the incredible art, food, and culture, there’s another reason to book a local luxury yacht charter: Mediterranean beaches! Besides travelers’ favorites in world-known places like Monaco, Cannes, Sardinia, Capri, Amalfi Coast, Ibiza, and Majorca, we know of a few. Whether you need a family-friendly spot or are craving crystal clear waters in a secluded cove, you need only to ask.
