Yacht chartering is a big part of holidays in St Tropez. With so much choice, you must be wondering which stunning vessel to charter during your summer getaway to the French Riviera this year. Our team has therefore prepared a roundup of the top luxury yachts for charter in the South of France in summer 2015.
St Tropez is one of the most luxurious towns on the French Riviera and the visitors arriving there in summer expect nothing but the best. Top luxury villas, stunning charter yachts and gourmet restaurants have all become staples of summer vacations in St Tropez. To stand out this summer, you need a yacht that won’t just be beautiful, but rather a yacht that will turn heads, such as mega yacht Serene.
At 133.9 metres long, Serene is one of the largest charter yachts on the market. She has seven stunning decks, accommodating up to 24 guests across 12 cabins as well as a 52-man crew.
Launched in 2011 by Fincantieri she features state of the art technology and design and her interior matches her exterior for style and elegance. An Espen Oeino exterior design is complimented by a beautiful Reymond Langton interior.
Among her features are two helicopter landing platforms, storage for a large submarine and a vast internal sea-water swimming pool. She also comes with Jacuzzi facilities, a jet stream swimming pool on the sundeck, a submarine and a cinema as well as a large choice of tenders and toys.
The ethereal Nemo Room (an underwater viewing room) is yet another of Serene’s many fine assets which help to distinguish her from all other yachts and guarantee unforgettable yacht charter memories in St Tropez.
Moonlight II is certainly a smaller charter yacht, but in no way any less glamorous than Serene. She is one of the most technologically advanced yachts ever constructed and her steel hull and superstructure and her aluminum deckhouses feature the latest deigns in naval architecture.
Moonlight II has accommodation for up to 36 passengers and a total of 34 crew. The living rooms are superbly decorated and designed. The upper deck master suite, for example, is furnished with a superior California king-size bed, and a 180 degree panoramic window. Meanwhile, the master bathroom boasts a private double Jacuzzi and the VIP stateroom on the bridge deck includes a lounge room with a 42″ plasma TV. Moreover, Moonlight II has 10 guest staterooms on the main deck, with super king-size beds and WI-FI and multimedia facilities.
For indulgent holidays in the Mediterranean, there is no greater luxury than the lower deck of Moonlight II. A Jacuzzi room, a massage and relaxation room, a sauna and a cold plunge pool run by two expert beauty therapists are the ultimate ways to relax and unwind on holiday. On the same deck, you can find multi-gym facilities and a beauty salon.
From the lower deck, take the lift all the way up to the sun deck. Join the many sun loungers or Jacuzzis and soak in the Mediterranean sun with a glass of wine from one of the more than 500 bottles of vintage wine in Moonlight II’s private wine cellar. On the deck there is also room for a helipad and a large external dining area with enough room for all 36 guests at the same time.
This 85.3 metre superyacht is capable of travelling long distances and is nimble enough to also navigate intricate coastal routes. Charter this yacht from Amalfi Coast, enjoying marvellous islands of Sardinia and Corsica on the way, to the glamorous French Riviera and continue your holidays in a stunning villa with a seaside view in St Tropez for an ultimate holiday.
