West Mediterranean

Say summer ports of call and everyone thinks of the sleepy fishing villages, sparkling sea, and heady dose of glitz that is the West Mediterranean. The West Mediterranean boasts two different faces; on one side you have the gorgeous glamor that is the French Riviera, the striking vision of Rome and Malta, and the limoncello-soaked lands of the Italian Riviera. On the other, you have the peaceful villages of Sicily and the Amalfi Coast. Without a doubt, for yacht charters chasing culture, heavenly food, and pristine photogenic sights – the West Mediterranean is your calling card.

Where In The World

Arguably one of the most important cradles of European art, history, and culture – the Western Mediterranean has some big players under its belt. Home to the iconic Colosseum of Rome, Valletta’s 15th-century skyline, and the winding canals of Venice, it is hard not to be utterly charmed by the cities of the West Mediterranean. The French and Italian Rivieras also fall under this category, perhaps two of the most beloved stretches of coastline for European yacht charters. Then we have the princely playground of Monaco, the sultry shores of Spain, and the breezy Balearics.

Favored Ports of Call

The French Riviera has long established itself as the go-to for yacht charters gliding around the well-heeled corners of the West Mediterranean. From soaking up the sun in St Tropez to rolling out the red carpet for the film festival in Cannes, hitting the dazzling sands of Nikki Beach in Monaco and strolling the Promenade des Anglais in Nice; this is the yacht charter spot to see and be seen.

Charter Highlights

Monaco’s luxury event calendar is a divine highlight for any yacht charter sailing the West Mediterranean and looking for a reason to don their finest diamonds and pearls. The Monaco Yacht Show is one of the most anticipated events of the year; perfect for networking, sailing, and sipping champagne. Speed lovers will also be delighted to witness the purring Monaco Grand Prix or those who prefer to mingle with celebs can head over to Cannes for the ritzy film fest.
