Choosing Your Charter Yacht
Knowledge is essential for choosing the right yacht, and our experienced charter brokers have an unrivalled knowledge of the entire fleet, from cabin configuration to crew personalities. Before you browse through the yacht selection for the best yacht for your charter party, have a look at the below guide, outlining different yacht categories and how they may complement your charter.
The megayachts adorning the Camper & Nicholsons fleet are the ultimate in size, facilities and luxury. These majestic motor yachts still manage to retain all the exclusivity, privacy and personal service of the ‘smaller’ superyacht. Whereas life on board a superyacht is akin to a five-star boutique-hotel style experience, staying aboard a megayacht is like residing in a world-class resort complete with all or any of the following: a nanny cabin, wine cellar, gymnasium, casino, heli-deck, swimming pool and health centre featuring a multi-gym, treatment rooms, sauna, steam room, plunge pool, Jacuzzi and beauty salon, and business centre.
With such volume and facilities at their disposal, along with maximum levels of security, the megayacht is primed for opulent parties, corporate events and charter holidays for large families.
50-60 metre motor yachts
The 50-metre+ superyachts in the Camper & Nicholsons fleet are the ultimate choice for partying, entertaining, or simply treating your family and friends to the very best that life can offer. The crème de la crème of superyachts, they promise an excess of luxury, comfort and style, yet thanks to their size and innovative designs, each has a unique character and identity. Welcoming between 10 and 12 guests – with crew numbers to match – these majestic vessels glide in luxurious seclusion from port to anchorage, indulging your every whim.
The most popular yacht for charter is a heavy displacement motor yacht that sits better at anchor and provides stability and comfort in rough conditions. Generally offering a cruising speed of between 10 and 14 knots, displacement yachts are not for those looking for a fast cruising experience, but for those looking for a relaxing pace.
35 – 50 metre motor yachts
The Camper & Nicholsons fleet of 35 – 50-metre motor yachts represent some of the very finest examples available for charter today. Fun and luxurious, they are the perfect platform to turn heads in harbour before taking to the waves in style. As with those in the 50-metre+ range, vast deck areas, Jacuzzis and gym and watersports equipment come as standard. Parties of up to 12 can step aboard taking advantage of every modern comfort, the latest entertainment and sports equipment and a unique level of service from up to 10 crew members.
Within this size range you will find sleek, high-performance modern yachts capable of speeds in excess of 20 knots, allowing you to cover a great deal of ground quickly. You will also find heavy displacement yachts, ideal for comfortable cruising so for those looking to cover distances on overnight passages while sleeping in comfort.
Under 35-metre motor yachts
Camper & Nicholsons offer a range of under 35-metre yachts that are equally inspiring, fast and classic. Ranging from super-sleek sports boats to graceful classics, they vary dramatically yet each offers every comfort and amenity for cruising in the 21st century. These motor yachts are ideal for family holidays and smaller, more intimate charter parties. Accommodating up to 12 guests and a professional crew, they offer wonderful luxury and service and can access many of the smaller, more remote anchorages.
40-metre+ sailing yachts
The larger sailing yachts in the Camper & Nicholsons fleet offer a compelling balance of grace and speed. Their size endows them with exceptional comfort, vast deck areas and the ability to house every possible luxury on board, while their high-tech modern equipment ensures a thrilling sailing performance under sail. Accommodating as many as 12 guests, with the highest levels of service from an equal number of crew, you can be assured of a stylish, fun and secure charter.
