1. The program and the itinerary of the cruise will be up to you, and you can change your plans at any time

On a yacht cruise, you will travel to places that are truly unique and often inaccessible to classic tourists. Each day you will spend the night in a new place. It could be a coastal town or a wild cove.


You'll visit places that are hard to reach, enjoy the beauty of the sights without the crowds of tourists, enjoy the movement of a yacht under sail and discover holidays in a completely different way. This is how guests describe their experiences after a yacht cruise on the Côte d'Azur.

3. A yacht holiday is quite comparable to a stay in a good hotel

Why week-long yacht cruises are becoming more and more popular? Cruising on a yacht or sailing catamaran is a new destination that has become very popular in the last few years. More and more people are opting for a yacht cruise instead of a hotel holiday. Especially when it comes to the French Côte d'Azur and cities such as: Monaco, Cannes, Nice or Saint-Tropez.


Just five years ago a yacht cruise seemed like something out of the question and very expensive. But that was no more than a stereotype. Today the yachting business is not just the luxury mega-yachts of millionaires but also a fairly sporadic fleet of yachts.



What's more, the quality of recreation on a new sailing catamaran is incommensurably higher! Every coastline on the Côte d'Azur with all its beautiful scenery will complement your trip.


For example, the modern and trendy Signature Sailing Charter catamaran is equipped with the latest technology.


Inside, it is a true suite with modern design:


  • A galley (kitchen)

  • Large saloon

  • 4 or 5 cabins


However, there are a fair number of double cabins (usually two to four) and toilets. Externally, she is a true category A seagoing vessel, i.e., capable of crossing the ocean in autonomous mode. The yacht can be sailing or motorised. But for certain reasons, sailing yacht cruises are the most popular.





4. Travelling on a yacht you can combine active and passive spend time


A sailing cruise is a unique opportunity to combine active and passive relaxation, for example: try kayaking or snorkeling right in the open sea! It is a great experience.


Or disembark on the coast for a stroll around the coastal town and dine in a new location with beautiful views. What could be more wonderful than sampling the different cuisines offered by the best restaurants on the Côte d'Azur!



5. A secluded family holiday or holiday with friends


We think that week-long or 14-day yacht cruises are great for families, friends or work colleagues (as a team-building activity).


The concept behind this type of holiday is to go on an individual week-long catamaran cruise with a crew of 3, where you will feel completely comfortable and secluded. The crew may consist of the captain, a stewardess and a chef.


The captain will set a course for your itinerary, so you can enjoy the unique and enchanting Mediterranean coastline to the fullest. He will take care of your safety and provide you with seaside entertainment equipment to spice up your holiday with activity.


The chef will surprise you with a Mediterranean menu created just for you. And a stewardess will make sure you feel comfortable.


Travelling on a modern yacht is characterised by comfort. There is a private beach, a house and transport. Forget about packing for tiresome mass excursions, now all excursions are just for you and under your guidance!

We hope you like our ideas. We wish you a pleasant cruise!
