An Alternative Day Charter Yacht on the French Riviera

Many people associate the French Riviera with luxury motor yachts and super yachts, often forgetting that the West Mediterranean is home to some of the best sailing yachts and catamarans on the charter market. With the majority of monohulls and catamarans having a minimum charter duration of a week, what do you do if you are in town for a few days or only want a day charter?


At Boatbookings, we have developed great partnerships with a few suppliers to make day charters possible. Whether you want a luxury monohull from Antibes and Cannes, or a catamaran from Menton, it is now possible to experience the joy of a days sailing!

TATOUNE is one of our favourite options for a catamaran charter from Menton and Monaco. This luxurious Lagoon 400, skippered by the very experienced Wilfred, accommodates up to 8 guests. A typical day on TATOUNE would include a trip down the coast past the beautiful Villefranche to Cannes with a luxury pic-nic between the Iles des Lerins. A slow cruise back to Menton with regular swimming stops around St Jean Cap Ferrat will ensure a very memorable day out. If you think that you would like to book a weeks catamaran charter but have never done so before, this opportunity is priceless for giving you a feel for chartering.

MOJITO is a very good alternative for a luxury monohull charter. This crewed monohull does both day and weekly yacht charters, providing guests with great flexibility. She has a wonderful crew, who will do everything in their power to ensure a successful day at sea. There is nothing better than cruising slowly down the Riviera with stops at Esterel and Saint-Raphael.

At, we welcome everyone from sailing professionals to complete novices and will help you at every step of the way to make your dreams a reality. We have a team of highly skilled professionals who are extremely knowledgeable in their destinations and will be able to help you with any questions you may have.

Maintenance of your Luxury Super Yacht, Part II

November is a key month in the yachting calendar, as luxury charter yachts are taken out of the water for maintenance and refurbishment after their busy summer schedule in time for the Winter Caribbean season. We have already seen MI SUENO’s recent maintenance work at the ground breaking Rybovich centre and ECLIPSE has followed suit after her recent maintenance work at the Fincantieri shipyard. ECLIPSE, a 162.5m motor yacht is the world’s largest super yacht and took 70 workers and four weeks to complete at the Trieste San Marco shipyard.

Fincantieri are continuing with the construction of a second super yacht at its Muggiano facility, following the release of the 134m SERENE and the 140m VICTORY in 2011. Three concept projects are in the process of being released by Fincantieri, including the 88m VIRAGE88. the 145m FORTISSIMO which features a gas turbine by Ken Freivoch and the 142m ARMONIA, styled by Andrea Vallicelli.

O’MEGA is one of our favourite luxury crewed super yachts that is available for charter in the Mediterranean and is the ideal choice for exploring the natural beauty of the French and Italian Rivieras. She accommodates up to 30 guests in 15 cabins, allowing you to take all of your closest family and friends, as well as having great space to entertain them.
