The MYBA Charter Show in Genoa is the largest show specialising in luxury charter yachts in Europe. The Y.CO Charter team has spent the last few days there and here we report our choices for Best In Show:
1. Mogambo – 74m
This gets the Y.CO vote as the most exciting superyacht to enter the charter market this year. Her interior is beautiful, with a very cool, contemporary feel. Packed with all the usual toys and entertainments, she also has a wonderful spa and beach club – the perfect charter yacht for everyone.
from €550,000 per week for 12 guests
2. Darlings Danama – 60m
Luxury motor yacht Darlings Danama boasts the biggest beach club and swim platform we have ever seen. With a light, bright interior and state of the art gym she makes another great addition to the charter market.
from €345,000 per week for 12 guests
3. Polar Star – 63m
We had to include the lovely motor yacht Polar Star in the list for her outstanding chef, who turns out Michelin star standard cuisine like it’s going out of fashion.
from €395,000 per week for 12 guests
4. Raasta – 47m
The immaculately maintained Raasta stands out from the crowd for her stella crew. No one could fail to be impressed by the great food and slick service. Even the crew uniforms seem chicer than other yachts. Plus, we loved the DJ booth and huge speakers on the sundeck.
from €185,000 per week for 10/12 guests
5. Aurelia – 37m
Aurelia sees a very cool new addition to the charter yacht market. Inspired by her owner’s love of GT racing, every element of the yacht incorporates subtle nods to his passion. With zero speed stabilizers, a great crew and an amazing chef, this is a brilliant mid-sized charter option.
from €105,000 per week for 8 guests
6. Salu – 30m
Size isn’t everything – motor yacht Salu packs all the comforts of a large tri-deck yacht into a neat 30m package. We particularly like the master cabin on the main deck, her zero speed stabilizers and the fantastic shaded bridge deck – perfect for long, decadent lunches on the Riviera.
from €65,000 per week for 8 guests
7. Firecracker – 26m
We were blown away by the service onboard Firecracker. Without a doubt the slickest, most impressive operation we’ve seen on a yacht of this size and an excellent charter option for an entry level price.
from €43,000 per week for 8 guests
8. La Mirage – 52m
Any superyacht with 5 jetskis makes our list – this way no one gets left out of the fun. On top, La Mirage is a certified dive centre, so guests can qualify for PADI courses onboard. Perfect for sporty types.
from €217,000 per week for 12 guests
9. Kestrel – 32.4m
It’s rare to see 4 cabins on a 100ft yacht, so Kestrel makes our list for her clever interior (and exterior) design. The use of space is ingenious – guests will feel like they’re on a much larger yacht.
from €49,000 per week for 8 guests
Each of these luxury yachts is available to charter through Y.CO in the Mediterranean this summer. For more information on superyacht charter, contact our charter team.
