Motor vs Sailing Yacht - What’s Right For You?

yacht-charter-italy

If you’re chartering for the first time, it’s easy to be confused by the range of yachts you have to choose from, starting with the core question of ‘motor vs sailing yacht’.  Over the years, sailing yachts have grown to become larger and more luxurious, so it’s not a simple question of sport and romance vs space and luxury any more. However, some differences do remain, and whether your perfect charter yacht is a motor yacht or sailing yacht may depend largely on your personality and the purpose of the charter. 

A Simple Guide to Weekend Yacht Charter on the French Riviera

Enjoy a weekend yacht charter while renting a villa on the French Riviera

If merely gazing at the sparkling Mediterranean Sea from the terrace of your luxury villa rental on the French Riviera is not quite good enough, why not hire a weekend yacht charter and discover the true Côte d’Azur?

One of the first sights to greet you as you drive along the coastal road to your luxury property on the Côte d’Azur is the sheer number of superyachts anchored in the shallow waters offshore.

The French Riviera is one of the most sought-after destinations for luxury yacht charters, with many of the world’s largest superyachts being based in the Mediterranean over the summer months.

Clients come from all over the world to explore the wonderful bays and delightful ports dotted along the French Riviera on fully-crewed luxury yachts, stopping at glamourous destinations such as Saint Tropez, Cannes, Antibes and Monaco. Other popular destinations for those on luxury yacht charter departing from the South of France include Corsica, Sardinia and the Italian Riviera.

However, many of the luxury yachts are also available for shorter weekend charters for clients who are perhaps staying in luxury villa rentals on the French Riviera but who would like to discover the coast by boat.

Great guide to choose a sailing or motor yacht


yacht for sale Shenandoah of Sark FraserWhen deciding to buy a yacht, the first obvious question to consider is whether to buy a sailing yacht or motor yacht. 

As sailing superyachts have become larger and more luxurious in recent years, the choice between a motor yacht for sale or a sailing yacht for sale has become rather more difficult — in many cases simply a question of personal preference, rather than a significant difference in the onboard experience.
So if you’re in the market to buy a yacht and you find yourself attracted by elements of both sailing and motor yachts, here are some considerations that might split the difference, as well as two superb examples of sailing yachts and motor yachts for sale.

Explore the Norwegian Fjords by Yacht in 2017

Explore the Norwegian Fjords by Yacht in 2017

Norway Yacht Charter in 2017

In the summer of 2017, take your yacht charter on the route less travelled. Discover breathtaking landscapes under the midnight sun and explore the Norwegian Fjords.

In the ancient Fjordlands of Norway, snow-capped mountains rise 1,700m above deep Fjords of perfect blue, and killer whales breach and hunt in crystal clear waters. On a Norway yacht charter you can kayak down snow melt rivers that are edged by deep green forest; you can admire eagles as they soar above your yacht; and you can relax in stunning luxury spas with endless views of mountains and sea.

Action, Adventure and Nature Unite

Bask in the warm summer sunshine as you cycle through valleys of wildflowers, go summer skiing, or hiking on an ancient glacier. Snorkel Lake Lyngstoyl, where drowned farm buildings and roads are still visible in the clear waters; experience the epic scenery on the Flam railway; or take the brand new Loen skylift 1,000 metres above the Fjords.

Adventure sports lovers will be in their element on a yacht charter in the Norwegian Fjordlands, where white water rafting, canyoning, mountain-biking, rock climbing and bungee jumping are just a few of the adrenaline sports on offer. You can even tandem skydive from a helicopter, giving you some of the best views on earth at spectacular speed. Of course, if you would prefer to stay firmly inside the helicopter, there are plenty of helicopter tours that offer a birds-eye view of this staggering landscape of rugged peaks and gentle green valleys.

Cruising Through Paradise

When your adrenaline-inducing excursions are finished, you can return to your yacht to relax in ultimate comfort: take a dip in the Jacuzzi under the midnight sun, while cruising up a Fjord that was carved by vast rivers of ice 2.5 million years ago. From the water level, you’ll marvel at the waterfalls that cascade from the cliffs to shower your yacht in fine cool mist, and the abandoned farmhouses that still cling to steep hillsides – so steep that farmers used to tie their children to trees so they didn’t fall off. You’ll see seals lying about on the wooden piers of white-painted villages, and harbour porpoises swimming alongside your yacht. Keen fishermen will be in their element in the Norwegian Fjords, with world-class halibut and giant cod to be found along the Atlantic Road.

Bergen Norway

The Route Less-Travelled

The crowded anchorages of the Mediterranean feel very far away while on charter in the Norwegian Fjords. Nevertheless, cruising grounds do not only comprise rural, idyllic wilderness in Norway; this becomes apparent as you dock in Alesund - a picturesque island city that was re-built in Art Nouveau style after a town fire in 1904. Fine-dine at Restaurant Maki, one of Norway’s fines t seafood establishments. The Dark-Ages town of Bergen is also a great city stop on your Norway yacht charter, with its narrow medieval alleyways and bright-painted buildings that cluster around the port.

For all the modern art galleries and glamorous hotels that you’ll find in the Fjordlands, it’s still all too easy to imagine the days of the Vikings here, and to half-believe the ancient legends of trolls as you climb Troll Wall or stand on the very edge of Troll’s Tongue – a stunning ledge of rock with panoramic views. With a labyrinth of islands and Fjords to explore, the only way to do this natural wonderland justice is by luxury superyacht
