Private Charters

For the ultimate privacy and luxury, talk to our cruise team to get advice on the best small ships, catamarans and yachts that are available for private charter.

There is always something magical about setting sail on your own private charter. Arrange your own itinerary and spend your holiday at your pace, explore the coasts, islands and seas in your own schooner, luxury yacht or gulet and be prepared for a holiday of a lifetime.

Enjoy a wonderfully relaxing holiday in Turkey spending leisurely days exploring sheltered coves and chilling out on deck indulging in some delicious cuisine and fine wine, or take a voyage on board Ombre Blu, a Lagoon 500 Catamaran along the Amalfi coast partaking in more energetic activities such as water skiing or paddleboarding. We can help you curate your own sailing itinerary and you’ll have your own captain, crew and team of experts on board to ensure your every need is catered for.
