“We had a great time in Greece”

We had a great time in Greece, the first three days we had constant 20-25knots of wind, so we were able to do a lot of sailing. The boat was also in good condition and everything in working order…the boat did however look a bit older than a 2018 mode…

“The sailing was great. The Exuma Islands were amazing.”

“We tried to make the most of it, but it was far from ideal”

Hey Grigory, thanks for asking. The boat was not in good condition. For example, there were no mooring, deck or motoring lights, so we feared a boat would hit us while we slept, and were not complying with the law while sailing at night. The anchor w…

Types of motor yachts for charter

Types of motor yachts for charter

By construction, motor yachts are divided into two main types – flying and displacement. The first type is built for speed. Modern technologies allow making such flying boats not only light, but also strong.So motor yacht charter is gaining popularity among those who like speed and not concerned with fuel consumption. In order to keep flying yachts light, please, do not take large supplies of fuel on board, so for long journeys it is not really suitable. Sleek and swift, flying motor yacht is also not designed for sailing in rough conditions, so the route will depend much on weather conditions.


Displacement motor yacht charter is valuable among those, who love comfort, space, and security. These vessels have a high level of stability, allowing to make long and safe passages. Displacement boats are not designed for racing, so they are equipped with less powerful, but much more efficient engines. Another advantage of displacement yachts is free space, which makes it possible to take a large supply of fresh water, food, and various sports equipment. Chartering a motor yacht means modern home for a comfortable journey in almost any weather.


Motor yachts can be divided into cruising, fishing trawlers, houseboats, and power catamarans. Pleasure motor yachts and boats for rent are usually equipped with everything you need to relax, so they are perfect for corporate parties, romantic getaways, cruises to the scenic spots and excursions. The most popular models of motor yachts for rent: Donat, Bayliner, Chaparral, Four Winns, Larson.

Houseboat rentals is a good option for navigation on the rivers and internal channels. These motor boats give you a chance to live in different places, to see them from a different unusual perspective. Houseboat for rent may allocate up to 16 people - no wonder its name is “house on the water." This boat provides great opportunity to go on a trip with your family or a group of friends. Another advantage is that any houseboat is easy to manage. The most popular models of houseboats for rent are Thoroughbred, Stardust cruisers, Destination Yachts, Sumerset Houseboats. Main disadvantage of this "home" is relatively high price for charter.


Power catamarans for charter are highly recommended for fishing, picnic and outdoor activities with friends. The most common models of power catamarans for rent are Lagoon, Fountaine Pajot, Catana, Corsair Marine, CraigCatf.


Each type of motor yacht has its own characteristics and certain advantages and disadvantages. Before taking a motor yacht rental, it is very important to determine the format of your trip, decide what you expect from it.
