With a pleasantly warm climate and lack of summer crowds, October is a wise time to take to the Mediterranean Sea and experience a relaxed, luxury holiday in style. Aboard a luxury charter, an experienced crew will create an environment that combines relaxation, decadence and style. There is a unique sense of freedom in being able to float into different locations. You could visit historic sites or places of interest, do any kind of water activity imaginable, or simply set sail and relax on deck in the sunshine.
With both sunshine and warm sea, the Amalfi Coast is an ideal place to explore in October aboard a yacht. The steep, dramatic landscape along the Sorretine Peninsula in Southern Italy has been declared to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is no surprise when you see its stunning, natural beauty.
Talking of beauty, you could charter a sailing yacht, called “Far and Wide” with Silver Star Yachting. This incredible creation was built in Cape Town, and has been exquisitely crafted and constructed. With air conditioning and Wi-Fi, and water activity equipment (which includes water skis, wakeboards, a banana, a donut, two kayaks and two SUPs), this sailing yacht has everything to keep anyone entertained. This gorgeous sailing yacht sleeps up to 8 guests in 4 cabins. There is an owner studio, which leads to the master bedroom and a VIP double bedroom. There are also two twin guest rooms. The four-man crew have their own independent quarters, so privacy remains for you and your guests.
Alternatively, if you have a larger crew of guests, or wish to have even more space, you could charter “Zambezi.” This larger yacht can accommodate 10 guests overnight (8 adults and 2 children) and up to 20 cruising guests. This could be an ideal charter if you wish to entertain a larger guest list for a day, and then spend more time with an intimate guest list. There is a large, spacious deck area for sunbathing, as well as a shaded area too. The “Zambezi” is based on Ischia Island, a volcanic island in the Tyrrhenian Sea, near Naples.
Another place that enjoys 300 days of sunshine per year, and warm weather in October and November, is the French Riviera. With convenient flights to the international airport, Nice Cote d’Azur, which boasts two helipads, travelling to your charter yacht couldn’t be easier or quicker. Naturally, this helps enormously when you have guests who arrive or leave at different times.
Although October is a good time to avoid any crowds, the French Riviera is still a great place to have fun. A luxury yacht like “Fusion”, with a Jacuzzi on deck, five cabins (including 3 king size beds) and “toys for the boys” like a jetski and a superjet, as well as a swimming platform, would suit a sociable or energetic group of up to 12 guests. “Fusion” can also travel fast, which makes it a great choice for those who want to move from one place to another quickly. It’s also got a Zodiac, which makes it ideal for snorkeling expeditions.
For a smaller group, or a family, you could charter Meme, a 24m luxury yacht. With 4 cabins, 2 double and 2 twin, there is still plenty of space. It’s also well-equipped with kayaks and adult and children-sized wakeboards and water skis.
With exquisite craftsmanship and cutting edge design, as well as a Jacuzzi on deck, and wakeboards and waterskis, “High Energy” is a great charter yacht for a group of couples. Taking 8 guests in four cabins, this Sunseeker yacht has plenty of space and sumptuous accommodation. The full height windows and the drop down saloon balcony enable enjoyment to be taken from the panoramic views. The extremely experienced and attentive crew of four will ensure that you have every comfort.
Depending on your particular requirements, Silver Star Yachting can advise which luxury yacht charter would be best for you and your guests. You can trust in the provision of the highest level of quality in the crew, and the yachts too.
