Five luxury yachts available for charter this summer
Wave goodbye to dry land and sail away on a floating resort
Why book a holiday on land when you can sail the world’s seas on a yacht? Offering five-star accommodation and first-class entertainment options, the world’s best yachts really can be described as floating resorts.
The exclusivity and plush surroundings don’t come cheap though. However, the experience of boarding your own vessel will be worth every penny.
Here we pick out five beautiful yachts that are available for charter this summer from SuperYachtsMonaco.
Irisha: a Bond-esque cruiser for the Med
Built by Heesen and designed by British studio Harrison Eidsgaard, the 51m Irisha was inspired by a modern-day fighter jet aircraft. Inside she features a chic neutral colour palette paired with an ultra-contemporary interior design. A dramatic open staircase connects the upper and lower decks, while full-length glass doors flood the space with natural light. She combines the very latest technology with an impressive top speed of 25 knots, taking high-speed cruising to the next level. Made entirely from aluminium, she offers sumptuous staterooms, an open-air jacuzzi, a beach club wellness area, as well as her own cinema. Very Bond-esque.
