The opportunities for getting an incredible last minute deal on a luxury yacht charter this August or September have seldom been greater, and whilst this article deals primarily with two key European destinations, for those looking for a Caribbean charter this winter, we would be delighted to chat through opportunities in places like the Grenadines, St Lucia, Antigua, St Barths, the Virgin Islands, etc., all of which are home to fleets of some incredible charter yachts, many of whom are keen to offer some amazing discounts in an attempt to persuade the world that these iconic sailing grounds are safe and very much open for charter.
Whilst COVID travel restrictions are preventing many from taking their usual August summer holiday, two of Europe’s most popular yachting destinations are very much ‘open for business’.
The exciting and colourful ports of Dubrovnik, Split and Hvar and the beautiful, protected Kornati National Park are some of Croatia’s better known ports of call. But there are simply hundreds of beautiful, if lesser known, towns, villages, islands and anchorages which, because of the pandemic, are all quieter and more tranquil than they have been for a generation. And they are all waiting with open arms to welcome guests and share their wonderful hospitality.
It’s hard to remember a time when Greece wasn’t a top luxury yacht charter destination. From party islands like Mykonos to the beautiful, secluded beaches of the Ionian and Peleponnese, and the picturesque fishing villages of the Cyclades, the stunningly blue waters and striking coastlines of the Greek islands are one of the best backdrops for a luxury charter that one could ever dream of. And in August and September 2020 this wonderful setting will be quieter and less busy than it has been for years.
If ever there was a time to book a last minute luxury charter in either Croatia or Greece, NOW is that time.
