Superyachts are known for their lavish style and innovative engineering, but not all luxury yachts are created equal. There’s a superyacht for every taste, from family-oriented to adventure crafts to yachts geared for entertaining guests. Each yacht in this selection of five luxury yachts for charter has a unique feature that makes it stand out from the crowd. Which will you charter in the Mediterranean yachting season?
5. M/Y BARENTS SEA – Unique Interior
The square-lined, contemporary interior of M/Y BARENTS SEA is what discerns this vessel from all others. Italian designed, the stylish decor merges innovative minimalism with futuristic styling to produce a space that is comfortable and sophisticated. From the illuminating glass taps in the staterooms to the square Jacuzzi on the sun deck, each feature of this spectacular yacht has been crafted with an acute attention to detail. The 41.56m vessel has an illuminated bar on the upper deck and up-to-date technology throughout. She sleeps 12 guests in six luxurious staterooms.
4. M/Y DEJA TOO – Convertible Dance Floor.
The luxurious 52m motor yacht DEJA TOO is one of the most unique yachts available for charter. Amels Yachts has designed a truly one-of-a-kind yacht with clean lines on the exterior and rich cream furnishings and a Versace dinner service inside. The superyacht can accommodate up to 12 guests and offers plenty of exterior space, including a vast upper deck with sun pads that can be partially shaded by an awning.
The deck not only offers al fresco dining with unbelievable views, but also a pool, a Jacuzzi, and a forward seating area, which can be converted to a dance floor when the sun goes down. A state-of-the-art surround sound system and drop-down cinema screens make it a party venue to remember.
3. M/Y OCTAVIA – Hydraulic Stern.
OCTAVIA was built by the English shipyard Sunseeker and demonstrates all the attention to detail and outstanding design for which the builder is famous. This beautiful superyacht has recently celebrated her tenth birthday and is in better shape than ever having undergone a thorough refit to offer a luxury experience like no other.
Blending sporty performance with timeless elegance, this vessel offers a unique cruising experience for up to eight guests. Her new generation engines have very low fuel consumption at a speed of 23 knots, while the beach hydraulic stern offers convenient access to the sea. OCTAVIA is ideally placed for an Italian yacht charter since she is based in Porto Cervo (with berth included) and can be moved across central and southern Italy in preparation for the next charter.
2. S/Y XARIFA – Burmese Teak Deck & Classic Styling.
This classic sailing yacht has a real one-of-a-kind beauty. The incomparable XARIFA was built in 1927, but the stunning 50m yacht is completely up-to-date since her refit in 2014 integrated teak decking from Burma, as well as new electronic and entertainment equipment. The three-masted schooner boasts a sail area of up to 1,386 square metres, with cream-coloured sails made by North Sails. She’s also equipped with a Lewmar hydraulic power system, making her the ultimate timeless sailing yacht with modern features. XARIFA is perfect for an elegant yacht charter in Italy or other sophisticated destinations in the Mediterranean where guests want to experience a taste of history whilst enjoying modern luxury facilities.

The 61m yacht DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER was built by internationally-renowned Italian shipbuilders Benetti, while her stunning interior was designed by Evan K Marshall.
