16 Superyacht Charters for Summer Because You Deserve a Better Vacation in 2021
Jun. 14th, 2021
Skip the road trip. Avoid resorts. Summer 2021 is here and you deserve a better vacation this year. So, charter one of these 14 superyachts, all of which are either newly built or recently refit and ready to make your summer vacation unforgettable. The Mediterranean is often the de facto summer yacht charter area, but if you’re looking to explore other regions, talk to the yacht’s charter company—Burgess, Camper & Nicholsons, Fraser, Edmiston, Y.Co, SuperYachtsMonaco, and Northrop & Johnson are included on this list—to see where else the yacht is available to charter.
Of course, if you’re already a regular charter guest and ready to upgrade to owning your own yacht, might we suggest browsing the listings over at the JustLuxe YachtShowroom. But if you’re not quite ready for full ownership, charter is a great way to get your feet wet and the following charter yachts will help convince you that a yacht trip is the ultimate summer vacation.

The 263-foot motor yacht Excellence—delivered by German shipyard Abeking & Rasmussen in 2019 with an interior by Winch Design—is one of the most recognizable yachts built in recent years. Its acres worth of glass gives the interior an incredible visual connection to the surroundings, while the massive 2,115 gross tons of internal volume makes rooms for a truly awesome set of amenities. They include a three-deck-tall atrium, a tiered movie theater, a water-level beach club at the stern with a skylight that looks into the swimming pool above, an elevator, and an entire deck dedicated to the owner’s accommodations.

Built in 2021 by Italy’s Extra Yachts—a division of ISA Yachts that specializes in smaller crossover designs that maximize volume with broad superstructures—the 86-foot motor yacht Haze feels like a penthouse on the water.

The high-rising hull and stacked superstructure design of the 111-foot Mimi La Sardine is a distinctive design feature of yachts built by Italy’s Cantiere delle Marche, which delivered the yacht in 2019.

Designs from Italian shipyard Azimut are immediately recognizable for their sporty silhouettes. For the 72-foot Almost Done, which launched in 2020, Azimut utilized carbon-fiber construction to minimize structural materials and give it the largest interior volume for a yacht its length. The distinguishing feature of Almost Done is the large flybridge, which creates more deck space than most yachts this size and can be shaded or open with a retractable sunroof in the canopy.
From about $335,000 per week (through Y.Co)
Dutch shipyard Amels has built some of the most iconic yachts on the water. Built in 2020, Galene is the latest charter example from Amels’ highly successful 180-foot platform, which benefits from huge panels of windows across the interiors and expansive exterior deck spaces, especially on the sun deck, which runs the entire length of the superstructure. The interior has an open feel with a contemporary chic design that gives the impression of being at a beach resort on the sea.

Built in 2007 with a design inspired by J.P. Morgan’s yacht from the 1930s, the 296-foot Nero is a modern-day classic with an immediately recognizable design.

Rosetti Superyachts’ 125-foot yacht Emocean feels like a much larger yachts in term of both space and capabilities. Its 5,000-nautical-mile range is comparable with vessels twice its size, while its onboard amenities—such as a full-beam master suite, a nearly 3,800-square-foot deck, and a sky lounge with movie theater—rival those of yachts longer than 200 feet.
From about $253,000 per week (through Camper & Nicholsons)
