  1. Hi Daniella,

    Awesome post, I really enjoyed the reading!

    Amazing!! Great suggestions for an unforgettable vacation experience, these are luxurious yachts. With any of these yachts, one can easily sail through many islands.

    I have a big family and we plan to rent one of these yachts for holidays. So I do have a question if you don’t mind.

    Are children allowed on board those yachts? And which of these would be more appropriate?

    Thanks a lot for sharing such an excellent article!

    • Hi Lock,

      Children are welcome on yachts, but they need to be under the supervision of a parent or a nanny.  I would say a catamaran would be the most appropriate boat for kids as it is spacious. They are plenty of space for them to play around. 

      I hope it helped. Don’t hesitate to contact me with any question. I’ll be glad to assist!

      Thank you for the comment!

  2. Well, being from the UK – I have to admit that I’m leaning towards the Diana Yacht and what she has to offer!

    I kind of like the more reserved style of the interior – some of the other yachts looked a little too modern and ‘space age’ for my tastes. 

    With regards to the Diana Yacht, you mention that all the employees on board are indeed British – I’m taking it that the yacht itself was constructed in the UK?

    • Hi Chris,

      The Diana is a release of the Sunreef and I think the boat was built in Poland. Anyway, this cat has a nice story behind her:) 

      Thank you for the comment and wish you a nice day!

  3. I would love to charter with Graycious Sailing Yacht as I don’t want too many activities when I’m on vacation. I love solitude and always enjoy the sound of waves while sighting the beauty of the sea. 

    Besides, I am a safety conscious type and this Yacht is just 2016 built which means its structures and materials are still pretty strong that can guarantee the safety of my family when caught by big waves and storm at the middle of the sea.

    Thanks for sharing this and for disclosing the year built which is really important for the charterers to know.

    Have a great day!


    • Hi Julius,

      The Grycious is relatively new and strong, but don’t worry, getting caught in a storm,  never happen as the captain always check the weather before the yacht charter trip. At the slightest sign of bad weather, the trip will be canceled, and you’ll receive a refund.

      Thank you for the comment and wish you a lovely day!

  4. I have been planning for my best friend Bachelorette party. This send like a fun thing to do so we can all can spend some quality time that we haven’t really done together. Cartouche Catamaran and Double Down are so far my favorite. With all 8 of us ship shouldn’t be that bad. Thanks for the details.

    Happy Holidays

  5. Hey there, 

    I’ve really enjoyed reading this article as its fun and contains tonnes of valuable information. Well, I was born in the UK so I trusted Diana Yacht a lot than the others. I’ve traveled on it in 2014 and loved it as the cabin crew members are really welcoming and helpful. The hospitality you get to experience is just outta this world. The food was quite delicious as well. Really enjoyed it to bits and bobs. From my perspective, I tend to think that Diana Yacht is the best. 

    Thank you for taking your precious time in writing this post. Well done! 

    • Hi there,

      I am glad you found this article useful!
      It’s very nice of you to share your experience with everyone. 

      Thank you for the comment! Have a nice day!

  6. Thank you so much for showcasing these beauties. I plan to cruise in the Caribbean soon and now I am looking for chartering a comfortable boat. In fact, it’s my father that’s want to rent the boat. I am a bit too young for it:) 

    From your list, I must point out the Graycious Yacht. It stands out the most. The elegance, the design, the comfort – this toy has it all.

    I have bookmarked your website so I can show this article to my parents. 

    Thank you, Daniella.

    • Hi Strahinja,

      You are very welcome! The Graycious is very comfortable and luxurious, there is no doubt that you and your father will have a lot of fun on board this yacht.

      Thank you for passing by and wish you a great day!

  7. Thanks a lot for showing us these beautiful yachts. Caribbean is wonderful place and I would like to visit at least once.I want to make a surprise for my wife’s birthday, so I think renting a yacht could be a great gift:) My choice would be Diamond Girl yacht as it looks very powerful. I’ll check this further. My wife is allergic to some foods, it would be useful to know if it’s possible to choose the meals?

    • Hi Daniel,

      It’s a wonderful present; I am sure your wife will appreciate it. 
      Yes, you can choose your own food. You’ll receive a sheet to fill out before the booking procedure. This will allows you to select your preferred meals. The Dimon Girl is beautiful; it’s an excellent choice!

      Thank you for the comment and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

  8. wow I had no idea yachts were so beautiful and fun to sail on. I always figured you had to go on a cruise to get that kind of stuff.

    While it’s hard to decide which one I would choose, I think I like the one with the tv inside of it lol.

    About how much does one of these cost? Also how long do you sail on them?

    Have you been on a yacht before, and if so how was your experience?

    • Hi Michael,

      It’s fun and relaxing. You should try:)
      It depends on which boat, each of them is priced differently. If you want to know the rate of the boat interested you, then click on the link. It will direct you to the boat in question with all the information you need. As for the duration, most yacht charters start on Saturday and end on following Saturday. 
      Yes, I ‘ve been chartering a lot in the Mediterranean, and I just love it! Who wouldn’t:)

      Let me know if you need more info, I am always happy to help!

      Thank you for the comment, and I hope you have a nice day.

  9. I was impressed with the Orion, Diamond Girl Motor Yacht and the Graycious Sailing Yacht. I think any of those three would make for a wonderful cruise with lovely accomodations. I enjoy sailing and this would be a great way to enjoy the sea without having to do all the work myself! Do you know if Wi-Fi is available on all of the yachts or just the select ones?

    I will be using your recommendations when I choose my next cruise. I look forward to your reply.

    • Hi Karin,

      Yes, those boats are beautiful and comfortable. You don’t have to raise a finger; the crew is there to pamper you all along the trip on the water. Great question! It depends. Some boats are equipped with a WIFI range extender which comes in the form of either antenna or antenna and a smart box. If the boat doesn’t feature a range extender, then you’ll be able to get a WIFI connection from a marina, cafe, or restaurant. Another solution is to get a mobile or cell phone data plan. Thanks to today’s technology, it’s almost impossible not to have a WIFi connection on a boat:)

      I hope it helped! Don’t hesitate to contact me with any question; I’ll be more than happy to help!

      Thank you for the comment and wish you all the best!
