The Best Yachting Destinations in Europe

Reading Time: 2 mins

Chartering a boat and sailing  Europe’s crystal blue waters must be one of the best holiday plans feasibly possible. It’s a great way to experience the rich history and culture of one of the most beautiful continents the world has to offer.

Sitting back on the deck with a glass of bubbly and looking out to the horizon is a great way to wash away the stresses of daily life. Here are some of our favourite destinations for your next yachting trip.

The Dalmatian Coast

The Dalmatian coast has become one of the most sought after travel destinations in Europe, fast becoming the ‘new Riviera’ and for good reason. This stretch of Croatian coastline offers the very best of history, tradition, stunning beaches and beautiful weather. There are over 1000 islands to explore here, so what better way to discover them than by boat?

The South of France

The South of France has been a go-to destination for Europeans looking to wind down since time immemorial. This region is the playground of the rich and famous, with around half of the world’s superyachts located between Sant Tropez and Monaco and holds the title of the world’s most popular cruising destinations. If you want to head off on a cruise and you’re not sure where to go, you couldn’t hope for a better starting point than the Côte d’Azur.

The Italian Riviera

Sailing between San Remo and Portofino is one of the most beautiful sailing trips you could hope to enjoy. Similarly to the South of France, the Italian Riviera is another fan favourite when it comes to yachts and combines world-famous Italian cuisine with picture-perfect views and crystal clear waters.


Finally, Greece is famous across the globe for its network of ancient islands. For an opportunity to feel like Odysseus himself, hopping from island to island is a great way to spend the summer and check out a smorgasbord of seaside fishing villages and a vibrant culture.
