Luxury Yacht Charter Monaco

Yacht Charter in Monaco

Monaco is frequently included in destination guides of the Cote d’Azur, but we believe this tiny principality on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea deserve a mention all of its own. For the world’s second smallest country – beaten only in the minute nation stakes by the Vatican City – has so much to offer those on luxury yacht charter including first rate marina facilities.

Monaco is also worth a visit for many more reasons in the luxury yacht charter world. It's facilities are second to none and the numerous events in the Principality are very appealing. The Monaco Grand Prix takes place annually towards the end of May, and is a very popular destination for those wanting to be seen on a yacht charter at this time of year. The port offers a great view of the race, while the yacht offers you a private and comfortable setting to sit back, enjoy a glass of champagne and some of the world's best drivers. 

Towards the end of the summer season, the Monaco Yacht Show takes place, with charter companies, yacht provisioning experts and yacht builders coming together to ensure that this is one of the yachting industry's most important events of the year. The Yacht Club de Monaco, which is located in Port Hercule, inaugurated its new clubhouse in June 2014 adding another dimension to the already world-renowned club.

In between May and September, there is always plenty of action to be had in Monaco. The Monte Carlo Casino is the perfect place to head for the evening for those who are interested in a game of cards. The fantastic facilities both in the club and around the city, where there are numerous michelin starred restaurants, such as the Hotel de Paris, ensure that a yacht charter of Monaco remains one of the most popular in the world.

The climate in Monaco is almost identical to the rest of the Cote d’Azur and lends itself to sailing.

In the low season, from May to June and then again from September to October, the weather is still wonderfully warm with daily temperatures frequently reaching the mid 20Cs.
