Surprisingly, this question often comes up when our clients return from a memorable luxury yacht charter vacation.
Charter clients seem mesmerized by The Superyacht Experience.™ We’re thrilled! : ) Indeed, it’s hard to imagine any other vacation on par with yachting. It’s an experience where the superyacht serves as a platform for an eco-friendly adventure. Most of all, it’s a chance to reconnect with family and friends, embrace diverse cultures, and rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit.
But is it a “bridge too far” to transition from luxury yacht charter guest to superyacht owner? Actually, it’s fairly common for charterers to become superyacht owners.
Some people purchase a specific automobile make and model after renting one for a long trip. They like how the car looks and handles. Of course, they celebrate how the vehicle whisked them to a new destination, in style and comfort.
Similarly, charterers become enthralled with the creature comforts of a yacht. Certainly, the idea of arriving in an exotic destination on a floating villa is pretty darn appealing.
From there, the intrigue and hunger continue to grow. After all, why limit your family’s enjoyment of cruising to just one or two weeks a year?
The yachting lifestyle is addicting!

Let’s take a look at three, popular superyacht charter vessels currently available for hire, and also available for purchase.
We never quite understood the meaning of Quantum of Solace as the title of the James Bond film. It doesn’t matter – naming superyachts in homage to Bond films is very popular. There are many James Bond boats as we like to call them. For instance, Octopussy, Skyfall, Casino Royale, and others.
There is even a superyacht named after the 2008 Bond film, Motoryacht QUANTUM OF SOLACE. The 72.6m superyacht was built in 2012 and refit in 2017. Here’s our description of the yacht on our charter website.
“Award-winning Proteksan Turquoise motor yacht QUANTUM OF SOLACE is noteworthy for a few reasons. Specifically, her spectacular lines and enormous volume. Charterers enjoy many entertainment and relaxation areas. For instance, her salons, bars, decks, and terraces. She is a Turkish build. The yacht features both interior and exterior design by H2 Yacht Design. QUANTUM OF SOLACE accommodates up to 12 guests in seven beautiful cabins.”
Her weekly charter rate is €560,000.
Her listed purchase price is $58,000,000.
Finally, a yacht with a name we can understand! Well…not really. We cheated and looked up the meaning. In numerology, the number 11 is considered a master number, and it signifies enlightenment. If you pair the number with itself, 11.11, it represents a message from the universe to become aware.
Cosmically, we’ve got a ways to go. However, even we’re aware that Benetti yacht 11.11 is stunning. Here’s a little history from our website on how this yacht came to be.
“Benetti yacht 11.11 is a winner from the 2016 World Superyacht Awards. She is only the second plumb-bowed boat built by the fabled Italian yard. This beautiful lady was originally commissioned to look like a Russian Czar’s palace. Her first owner walked away when the yacht was just 40% complete. A new owner stepped in to transform the yacht into an award-winning monochromatic masterpiece. What a fortunate owner! The current trend is to build yachts with hard, minimalistic edges. This yacht’s main living areas onboard yacht 11.11 offer suppleness and comfort.”
The weekly charter rate is €650,000.
The listed purchase price is €59,500,000.
Back in grade school, we were taught Pluto is the ninth planet in the solar system. Now, it’s referred to as a dwarf planet. It’s ok, Pluto – we‘ll still call you the ninth planet!
Avoiding the naming controversy is the 73.2-meter superyacht PLANET NINE. Forget outer space – there’s plenty to explore on earth. This yacht is built for ocean adventure. Our website notes describe this superyacht as a
“…Long-range high-quality luxury explorer yacht with serious go anywhere sea keeping characteristics, heavy build specification and suitable for sailing in ice conditions in accordance with its class notation. Dynamic positioning and suitability for global cruising. Commercially approved helideck suitable for an Augusta Grande dimensionally or larger helicopter in weight, up to 8 tons, with enclosed below-deck hangar.”
The weekly charter rate is €650,000.
The listed purchase price is €85,000,000.

Couples plan Caribbean yacht charter vacations together. Traveling with other couples often produces an all-too-common hurdle. Do we select a large, expensive yacht with equal cabins? Or do we choose a smaller, more affordable boat and draw straws to see which couple gets the cabin with two single beds?
Welcome motoryacht TOUCH. She has come to the rescue of couples everywhere by offering equal cabins and affordable rates.
The 120 foot motor yacht TOUCH offers accommodations for 4 couples in 4 equal staterooms – each featuring a king size bed and ensuite bathroom.
While similar-sized yachts are charging rates in excess of $75,000 plus expenses, per week, M/Y TOUCH has kept her prices reasonable – charging $65,000 per week, plus expenses, for 8 guests, during the 2012 Caribbean charter season.
Launched in 2004, the yacht underwent a $1.5 million refit in 2011. The yacht was painted top-to-bottom, the entertainment system was upgraded with new flat screen TV’s, audio speakers and components, and new fabrics and coverings on most of the yacht’s indoor and outdoor furniture.
Based in St Thomas, USVI, the yacht and her crew keep guests busy with an amazing assortment of watertoys. For instance, high-speed 29′ sportfish tender, sea kayaks, snorkel gear, and an assortment of towable toys. After a day of playing, a large ondeck Jacuzzi tub offers couples the chance to relax sore muscles and enjoy a cocktail under the stars.
In conclusion, filling this special niche for couples should keep motor yacht TOUCH busy for years to come…

Janet Winters is the author of The Barn Goddess Chronicles, a blog celebrating the equestrian lifestyle. Winters refers to the lifestyle as, “…a journey of adventure, discovery and community…We never know what any particular ride will be like.”
That spirit of adventure bonds the equestrian and yachting lifestyles together. Indeed, each time we “climb aboard” – whether it’s a steed or a luxury yacht – we have the chance to immerse ourselves in adventure. Moreover, it’s an opportunity to rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit.
It’s hard to imagine a luxury yacht charter destination that beckons to equestrian travelers more than the Mediterranean. The Eastern “Med” includes Greece and the Aegean Sea. The Western Med covers the French Riviera and Italy’s western coast, as well as the islands of Corsica and Sardinia. The scenery is breathtaking. In fact, everywhere you turn, you see hills and mountains that look down on uncrowded beaches and turquoise-green waters.
Remember the classic film, The Black Stallion? (Oh, who could forget!!??) The young, shipwrecked boy and his newfound equine friend are inseparable. It is a magnificent friendship. They spend much of the first part of the film exploring an uninhabited beach and frolicking in the sea.
Those mesmerizing scenes take place on the beautiful island of Sardinia.
Just look at the color of the water!!!!
GO, GO, GO – FEI MONACO
Are you familiar with the places to see and the things to do during a yacht charter in the Med? Please don’t worry if your answer is “no.” Our team will create a bespoke itinerary for you. It will be based on the activities you enjoy.
For example, we created a Equestrian-Friendly yacht charter itinerary that kicks off in Monaco at the annual FEI Monte Carlo, Port Hercules Standard Show (June 25-25).
The FEI show jumping arena is set up right in front of the marina! Your superyacht will serve as your floating hotel while you attend the event.
Try to envision the sequence of your day.
First, you wake up and enjoy an open-air breakfast, on deck. Everywhere you look you see beautiful yachts, docked side by side. Second, you take the short walk to the FEI arena for an exciting day of world-class show jumping. When you need a break, your crew is standing by – ready to serve you a freshly-prepared lunch. No one but you and your family and friends are onboard. Third, when the jumping is over for the day, you and your guests return to your luxury yacht. After all, it’s time for an impromptu and oh-so-casual cocktail hour!
Without a doubt, it’s hard to imagine a more convenient vacation arrangement for watching the FEI show… This is the Equestrian Lifestyle at its best…
Now, its time to explore Monaco and then set off for adventure. Let’s look at the rest of your 7-night itinerary:
Monaco is the second smallest state in Europe. The only city, Monte-Carlo, is synonymous with all things luxury – casinos, resorts, superyachts, exclusive parties, and exotic cars. You and your family and guests can enjoy activities such as:
-Helicopter rides over the city
-A test drive in a F1 race car
-Lunch at Le Vistamar, at Hotel Hermitage*
-Dancing the night away at the exclusive nightclub, Jimmy’z.
*Additionally, other beautiful lunch options include Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, Au Grand Inquisteur
Finally, the dining experience at 3-Michelin star restaurant, Louis XV is not to be missed. This fine establishment features the unique food interpretation of international renowned executive-chef Alain Ducasse.
Pampelonne Beach is the sandy locale that fuels St Tropez’s fame. Over 20,000 people a day visit this beach in the peak of the summer (July/August). Even so, you’ll never feel overwhelmed as your private superyacht is at anchor, just a few yards from the beach. You decide how much interaction, if any, you want with the local community and tourists. The top beach clubs/restaurants worthy of a visit are Nikki Beach, Bagatelle, Cap 21, Les Murenes, and Le Club 55.
Are you wondering, “What’s in store for day four?” Just what is on the horizon for the rest of the week?
Adventure awaits, and it all starts with a click of your computer mouse.
