Mediterranean Top Rated Charter Catamarans: Perfect for Springtime Sailing Through the Most Prestigious Waters in the World

The Mediterranean yacht charter season opened this month with a fabulous array of available luxury charter yachts. While the height of the yacht charter season will be in July and August, spring is an ideal time for a luxury catamaran charter, offering a greater choice of berths and anchorages with fewer tourists onshore. Sail the coast of the French Riviera and discover 100 miles of extravagant and exclusive seaside towns including the famous ports of Monaco, Cannes, Nice, Antibes, and Saint-Tropez. Select an itinerary through the charming and sophisticated Italian Riviera and experience the culture, history, architecture, sophistication, and stunning beauty that has made the region legendary.  Charter in Croatia through the azure waters of the Dalmatian Islands, explore Spain and the Balearics, succumb to the exotic lure of Turkey and Greece, the cradle of civilization. It is springtime, and every port of call is in bloom.
