One of the most visited and popular super yacht charter destination in the region is certainly Martha's Vineyard.  The Edgartown is a stylish port of call, perfect for super yachts of all types.  The summer attracts everyone who is someone in the USA as the town is the oldest and wealthiest place in the area.  The shopping is impressive in the well presented streets of Edgartown and a  number of festivals and local events with national importance is huge in the summer too.  The Chappaquiddick Point is the must visit stop for lunch or a swim while on the island.   As the largest island in the Southern part of New England, this is a location where one day may not be enough to sample all of what the most prosperous spot in this part of the US has to offer.

Apart from these two locations you are also invited to visit Katama Bay nearby, Nantucket, Cuttyhunk and Hyannis, all of which are exceptioanlly placed to offer you great seafood in local restaurants, lovely beaches and lots of sun hopefully.

And if you need more inspiration, you can rest assured that Newport's festival season lasts all year, their impressive mansions are always open for tours and nearby Forbes family islands can show you what you can do to be an island owner yourself.

Super Yacht Charter in Spain

Luxury crewed yacht charter in Spain can take many forms and in a number of culturaly, historically and industrially different locations.  The usual family holidays are most of the time concentrating on the Balearics and yacht charter cruises around island of MALLORCA and IBIZA.

Motor yacht charter clients or those who charter luxury sailing yachts for longer periods are likely to cross to Ibiza and spend at least one or two days around secluded islet of Formentera, a genuine peaceful paradise in the West Mediterranean.  Circumnavigation of both Ibiza and Formentera and return to Mallorca is a genuine Balearics luxury yacht cruise. For more adventurous yacht charter clients, will head eastwards from Palma and attempt to circumnavigate the island of Mallorca. If the length of the holiday permits historic port of Mahon and circumnavigation of Menorca could also be on the radar and is highly recommendable anyway.

Where do luxury crewed or super yacht charter clients go elsewhere in Spain?  Costa del Sol is very much built up concrete jungle which attracts old age pensioners throughout the year and the coastline is not as enchanting as the one in the Balearics.  For that reason, most yacht charters taking place in between Gibraltar and Malaga are weekend cruises on motor yachts.  Crossings to Morocco and its lively port of Tangier is one of the most do visits any luxury crewed yacht charter guest should consider when sailing in Costa del Sol. 
One last popular location is obviously Barcelona and a cruise towards the northern tips of Costa Blanca with a stopover in Valencia, in particular during one of the America Cup competitions.  Visiting San Feliu, Llafranc, Cadaques, L’Estartit, Palamas and Tossa anchorage sh ould be on the must visit list.
In terms of yachts based here, there is an increasing number of those with the Spanish charter licence in the last couple of years.  Whereas in the past one could only charter a 30 year of super yacht with questionable history and ancient refit, nowadays some spectacular charter yachts find their way into the Balearics.  This is in particular the case with luxury motor yachts or mega yachts above 100’ as up to around 2010, not a single 30m+ superyacht had a charter licence here.
