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.

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???!

Luxury Yacht Charter: What Is The Milk Run?

Posted on

Q:  I’ve read a few yachting articles that referred to superyachts seeking new cruising grounds as an alternative to the traditional “Milk Run.”  What is a milk run in yachting?      Amy S.

A:  Thank you for your question, Amy. Let’s start with a quick peek at the definition of milk run in an online dictionary:

“Milk Run” – Noun…A routine, uneventful journey.

In the world of megayacht rental vacations, there are two primary offerings that account for the bulk of the charter business:  Caribbean yacht charter vacations in the winter and spring, and Mediterranean yacht charter vacations in the summer and early fall.

Charter clients are like most other travelers – they want to “get away,” but most prefer to get to their intended destination quickly. 
For North Americans, this means a short flight to the balmy Caribbean to sail, cruise, and visit islands like St. Thomas and St Barts.
The same holds true for Europeans, who can take drive or take a train to seaport destinations like St. Tropez, Positano, or Monaco.
Like any business, demand dictates the industry, and the owners of the megayachts instruct their crews to position in the Caribbean for winter/spring and then “cross the pond” to reposition in the south of France or Monaco for the summer season.
Thus, it is this routine, somewhat uneventful journey between the Caribbean and the Mediterranean that boaters refer to as the, “Milk Run.”
Side notes:  A handful of yacht owners have recently made efforts to entice potential customers to break away from the traditional cruising grounds, and consider yachting holidays in more exotic locales.  Some of the new up and coming destinations include:
Australia yacht charter
Middle East yacht charter
Antarctic yacht charter
Thailand yacht charter
