Looking for a last minute European getaway before the kids head back to school? If you are, one of the most popular Mediterranean yacht charter vessels is offering a deep discount to woo your interest.
From August 15th, motor yacht CLOUD 9 is offering 14 days for the price of 12 – a savings of over €100,000. To further entice you, the yacht will waive all delivery fees for a cruise in Croatia and/or Greece.
Stylish and exceptionally comfortable with 5-star cuisine, CMN line 60 yacht CLOUD 9 boasts a huge Owner’s suite, a VIP stateroom with a balcony, as well as a gymnasium and plenty of watertoys.
Oh – we almost forgot, the yacht just installed a brand new waterslide!
Scottish-born Captain, Colin Boyle, has created a special, scenic sample itinerary for a charter commencing in Split and concluding 14 nights later in Zante! Take a look at the first three days of this Eastern Mediterranean adventure:
DAY 1 – SPLIT
Join CLOUD 9 in Split – a 20 minute drive from the international airport. Immediate departure for a nearby anchorage to swim and relax. Remain at anchor overnight.
DAY 2 – HVAR
Hvar – truly one of the highlights of Croatia. The city has an extraordinary history and a great social atmosphere. The tiny harbor fills quickly with anchored yachts and we must arrive at noon. We’ll dinghy our guests ashore where they will find vineyards, lavender fields, walks and clean beaches. For the evening, Hvar offers great cafes and restaurants – and the best in Croatian wine. The bars and cafes remain open late into the night.
DAY 3 – KORCULA
Depart Hvar for a passage to Korcula, the home of Marco Polo. Once at anchor, the protected bay is the perfect place for a day of watersports and swimming. After dinner, we’ll dinghy ashore to walk the ancient streets to window shop and listen to the street musicians.
DAY 4 – MLJET NATIONAL PARK
An early morning passage brings us to the Mljet National park, a peaceful, and beautiful anchorage. Here, we’ll find steep, rocky slopes covered with dense pine forests that hide a 12th century monastery built on a small island in the middle of a lake. That’s right, an island on an island! The lake is generally 4 degrees warmer than the sea, and a good place to swim. Hiking, guided tours and bike rentals are also available.
All that in the first 4 days – imagine what adventures might be in store for the next 10 days???!
