Yacht Charter destinations Mediterranean - Tops and Trends
The dream destination of most european charter sailors for their summer cruises is Greece - this is at least what slightly more than 30 percent of the charter tourists comment in a survey as their preferred destination. Some 25 percent prefer cruising in Croatia, for each 13 percent, Italy and Turkey are the favourites, followed by the Balearic Islands and France. Due to the accessibility of the areas, flights, price levels and the different number of charter fleets however, the real bookings do not always coincide with the desired regions: One third of bareboat charter sailors book their yacht for their summer cruise in Croatia, about 20 per cent in Greece, 15 percent in Italy. Slightly more than 10 percent opt for Turkey and Spain / Balearics.
Most charter yachts are based in Croatia: Here charter sailors have the choice between about 2800 sailing and motor yachts in the charter fleets. With about 1700 yachts Greece is second, followed by Italy with about 1400, Turkey with approximately 900, German Baltic Sea with about 800 and Spain with around 600 yachts: Here, most yachts are based in the Balearic Islands of Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza. More and more popular as well, but with smaller charter fleets: Malta, Montenegro and Slovenia.

More charter fleets in Malta
Malta with its three islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino and its impressing capital La Valletta attracts more sailors. There are several charter bases now, some new sailing yachts have arrived. Malta is perfect for charters of one week of relaxed sailing due to short distances - and good for sailing also in the European winter due to its mild climate.
Charter cruises from Corfu to Albania
A beautiful, yet little built-up coast, barely tourism, even less yacht tourism: Some charter providers in Corfu approve now of trips of their customers to the Southern coast of Albania, the Riviera of Albania. Upon entry, a local agent can help with the check-in procedure. Port of Entry - among others - is Sarande, a lively town on the Albanian South coast not far from Corfu. In addition to the modern marina Orikum further in the North, just some older ports wait for the sailors, but wonderful anchorages and lots of nature.
New charter bases in the Baltic States
Sailors can now easily explore the coasts of the Baltic States in their charter Holiday: Both in Estonia and Lithuania, charter bases now offer sailing yachts. The base in Estonia is directly in Tallinn - the Old City Marina is located near the old town, which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage. Several islands off the coast are worth as trip destinations - and together form a fairly protected sailing area. As a one-way base also Haapsalu is offered, a small town on the west coast. The infrastructure for charter trips is quite well developed in Estonia with numerous marinas. In Lithuania, the Castle Harbour is in Klaipeda is port of departure for the charter fleet - from here, charter crews can sail along the coast of the Baltic Sea and with the "Curonian Lagoon" and explore inshore waters.
Suggestion: Charters in Greece
For the new season, Greek charter bases try to offer even better service and equipment: They invest in new yachts and equipment upgrades, for example installing LED lighting strips in the cockpit, offering TV with a DVD about the sailing region and check-in information, an Ipad for the cruise or solar panels for better power supply. And the number of catamarans offered - with or without crew - is growing significantly. So yacht charters in Greece can really be recommended.
The use of the buoys in the Cabrera archipelago which is very popular among yacht charter Mallorcacrews has now to be paid for. Until the end of this summer season, overnight stays at the buoys in the national park south of Majorca was free of charter - sailors had only to apply for a permission before there cruise. However, the fees are relatively modest. Eventually yacht charter crews cruising in Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza, will find more space in the marinas in the future: To promote yacht charter tourism, the government plans to expand the yacht harbours of the Balearic Islands.
Just in time for long-distance travel in the winter season, more charter bases were opened in Australia, Cuba and Grenada. More offers for next summer:
