Chartering a luxury yacht is one of the most immersive vacations one can take. Unflappable service, ultimate privacy and the beauty of the open sea in a dreamy location; no wonder the industry is seeing a huge rise in interest. After unprecedented demand in both 2020 and 2021, this coming yacht charter season is once again set to be busier than ever, so understanding the yachting industry jargon is essential – especially for first-time charterers.

To help you secure the perfect charter yacht in the perfect place, Elite Traveler breaks down exactly how long each yacht charter season lasts, the difference between high and low season and what industry insiders mean by ‘shoulder season’, as well as the best places to travel are during different times of the year.

Yacht charter seasons explained

If you’ve never chartered a yacht before, deciphering the seasons can be tricky. There are actually two primary types of ‘season’: winter vs summer, and high vs low. Winter/summer seasons each last around six months and refer to both location and time of the year; summer yacht charter season spans from around April/May through October, while the winter season starts in November and runs through April.

The summer/winter seasons are dictated by the weather and water conditions, with areas such as Northern Europe and the Mediterranean most popular during the summer season, while destinations in the Caribbean, Indian Ocean and Florida dominate the winter yacht charter season.

High/low season (also known as peak/off-peak season), on the other hand, refers to the busier and quieter times the yachting calendar, with peaks in both the summer and winter seasons. During the winter, Christmas and New Year are the peak yacht charter periods, with July and August being the busiest in the summer season. During these times yacht availability tends to be more limited and prices are often higher.

Peak vs off-peak yacht charter costs

As with any vacation, booking a yacht charter during peak season will inevitably be more expensive. For example, the ultra-luxe Secret superyacht (who features a swimming pool, separate Jacuzzi, cinema room and fully equipped gym) is available to charter for €840,000 (approximately $990,000) during low season, whereas during both the winter and summer high seasons weekly costs begin at €875,000 ($1.29m).

You’ll also find that local events, such as the Cannes Film Festival and the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, will impact yacht availability and weekly chartering costs throughout both high and low seasons.

Can you charter a yacht out of season.

Given that different parts of the world have different peak seasons, you’ll find that at pretty much any given time of the year, you will be able to charter a luxury yacht. However, bear in mind that the summer/winter seasons are primarily in place due to weather; while many luxury yachts are impressively durable, with explorer yachts designed to handle all weathers, yachting is generally best enjoyed in warmer climates and calmer seas.

So, while it may be possible to charter a yacht in Northern Europe during winter, you may be disappointed to find significantly higher rainfall and lower temperatures. Equally, while the Caribbean and Florida are both known for enjoying generally good weather all year round, don’t disregard the threat of hurricane season, which tends to be from June to November.

You may also find that your preferred yacht is only available in certain destinations at certain times of the year. For example, leading yacht charter company Burgess only offers the hybrid yacht Home for cruising in the Mediterranean during the summer season and in the Caribbean during winter. Ultimately individual yacht availability is dictated by her owner; if they want to enjoy their vessel for themselves during certain months of the year, she won’t be available to charter.

The best way to secure both your desired vessel and ensure a smooth, comfortable cruising experience is to enlist the help of a yacht broker, who will be able to advise you on the best time of year to visit certain destinations as well as use their industry connections to find the best yacht for your needs.

Shoulder seasons

When looking into chartering a yacht you will also hear of shoulder seasons, which refer to the periods that sit either side of the peak seasons, running from April – May, and September – October. For many, the shoulder seasons are the most preferable time to book a yacht charter: demand for boats, berths and anchorages tends to be far lower and crowds onshore will be smaller. For many, the weather is also more agreeable during shoulder seasons with a light breeze cutting through the heat of the sun.

How long is an individual charter?

In addition to understanding the length and meaning of different yacht charter seasons, you should also consider how long you want to be on board. Most charter companies tend to operate in week-long blocks, but the average is about ten days – again, a yacht broker will be able to negotiate your desired charter length.

However, while most people tend to charter for one or two weeks, those with time on their hands sometimes opt to charter for extended periods, with some even staying on board for an entire season. On larger vessels, onboard amenities will typically include office spaces (if not full conference rooms) and WiFi connections allowing for business to continue as usual during long-term yacht charters.

When to book a yacht charter

According to yacht charter company Northrop & Johnson , if you want to vacation during the peak seasons you should reach out to a broker no later than ten months in advance to ensure your first choice of boat and berths, with many yachts booked up a year in advance. However, three to six months ahead of time will usually be suitable for off-season yacht charters.

How Long Is a Yacht Charter Season?

Every charter destination has a “yacht charter season,” which refers to the months when cruising conditions are ideal and charters are most popular. For example, some destinations have a summer season like the Mediterranean, while others are winter charter season destinations (like the Caribbean).

But you might be wondering: How long is a yacht charter season?

Both summer and winter chart seasons last roughly six months. Yet, within each season there are also “high,” “low” and “shoulder” seasons. In both summer and winter, “high” or peak charter season – the time when chartering is most popular – lasts just 2-3 months.

Wondering when you might plan your next charter? We’re taking a closer look at yacht charter seasons to show you how long they are, how seasons differ by region, and when peak charter season is.

Summer Yacht Charter Season

Zakynthos yacht charters

The Mediterranean is the world’s most popular summer yacht charter destination. The region’s beautiful temperate climate offers ideal conditions during the summer months, and hotspots like Cannes and the French Riviera, Italy, and Croatia beckon charter guests from around the world.

How long is the summer charter season?

Summer charter season in the Mediterranean begins in late-April and runs through mid-September. Summer in the Mediterranean not only brings warm, sunny weather; it’s also known for its many cultural affairs, like the Cannes Film Festival, the club season in Ibiza, and food and art festivals along the Amalfi Coast in Italy.

Throughout the Mediterranean, peak charter season is just two months: July and August. Many yachts are fully booked during the peak season, and rates climb by about 10%.

Alternatively, New England in the U.S. is another popular summer destination, yet the season is a bit shorter: from mid-June through August, with the high season running from mid-July to mid-August.

Popular summer charter destinations:

If you’re looking for a summer charter destination, spots throughout the Mediterranean offer respite from the heat and humidity. Top destination for summer yacht charters include:

French Riviera Known for its cosmopolitan beach clubs and rustic charms, the French Riviera – including Cannes, Monaco and Corsica – offer ideal summer cruising conditions. The French charter season mirrors most of the Mediterranean, but generally starts a bit later, in mid-May and runs through September. The summer season coincides with many events popular with charter guests, including the Monaco Grand Prix, the Cannes Film Festival, and Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

Italy With numerous charter regions, including Sicily, the Amalfi Coast and the Italian Riviera, Italy might be the world’s most popular destination for summer charters. Italy offers a bit of everything: Excellent cuisine and wine, historic sites to explore, and plenty of culture and nightlife. Italy’s charter season runs May through October.

In the summer months, Greece offers plenty for charter guests to experience, including beautiful beaches, UNESCO sites, and excellent cuisine like moussaka and Restina wine. Greece’s charter season is a bit longer: from April through October.

The Caribbean offers ideal cruising conditions throughout the winter months, including steady breezes (a must if you fancy a sailing charter), warm weather in the 70s and 80s, and hundreds of hidden beaches to explore.

Winter charter season is about six months long, and typically beings in late October, around the unofficial season kickoff, the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, and runs through March. Thailand, Tahiti and the Seychelles, and the South Pacific are also popular destinations for winter charters (and have a similar season to the Caribbean).

Yacht Charter Seasons: Where Can I go and When?

14th jun 2021 by rightboat team.

Rightboat logo

The world is bursting with incredible yacht charter destinations, from the ever-popular Mediterranean and Caribbean, to the South Pacific, the Indian Ocean, North America and beyond. Being presented with this dazzling array of golden beaches and picturesque coastlines makes it hard to choose where to go, but you can narrow it down by charter season. Figuring out yacht charter seasons can be a bit tricky, as they are classified not just as summer and winter, but high and low too.

Here we will take a look at the seasons and which destinations are best for a family yacht charter to help you choose your next holiday at sea. 

Yacht charter seasons defined.

Summer and winter seasons last around six months each, with the summer yacht charter season stretching from April/May through to early October, and the winter season running from November through to April. The weather is the most obvious factor in determining the best sailing or boating seasons, but low and high seasons within those periods play an important role too.

High and low seasons – also referred to as peak or off-peak seasons – focus on busier and quieter times in the yachting calendar. For example, Christmas and New Year mark high season points during winter, when demand is high, availability limited and prices sometimes higher. Likewise, the hurricane season of the Caribbean is an example of low season, when boats hunker down for a few weeks and allow the storms to pass over. In the Mediterranean, July and August are bursting at the seams, and mark the high point of the summer season. 

While smaller charter boats will usually be located in one place, and you can therefore charter them out of season if you choose, you can expect larger charter yachts such as superyachts to move from one region of the world to another as they follow the better weather. So if you have your heart set on a particular yacht, ask the broker for its annual charter itinerary. 

Shoulder Seasons

Shoulder seasons are a great way to make the most of temperate climates, fewer crowds, lower prices and more availability. They refer to the period either side of the high season, so in summer would be April and October, and in winter November and March, and offer fantastic opportunities for a budget yacht charter. As mentioned, larger yachts may have moved on to new cruising destinations by this point, but smaller boats or those who are locally-based will be able to offer less stifling weather, quiet anchorages and marinas, less demand for boats and discounted prices. 

Chartering a yacht out of season

Seasons have been long-established for a reason, but that isn’t to say you can’t charter out of season. We’ve taken a look at shoulder seasons, and your best bet is to stick as close to those as possible, but you’ll find boats at any time of the year. Keep in mind however that you’re choosing a time when the weather might not be favourable – rain or cold weather can put a downer on activities for example – or you struggle to find attractions and restaurants open. In off-the-beaten-track destinations such as Alaska, ice might hinder access to and from marinas, or strong winds such as the hurricanes which pass through the Caribbean from June to November might make cruising uncomfortable or impossible. 

Summer Season Charter Destinations

The Mediterranean is the golden girl of summer yachting destinations, with tantalizing coasts, ancient cities, beautiful islands and rich culture at every turn. From the glamour of the French Riviera and Italy’s Amalfi Coast, to the beauty of the Balearic and Croatian islands, it is the yachting capital of the world. But the Mediterranean isn’t the only summer destination worth visiting, with North America, the America’s and South Pacific on the list too. 

1. Mediterranean summer yachting destinations: Greece, Italy, Croatia, Balearic, Sardinia, French Riviera and Turkey.

2. North European summer yachting destinations: Consider northern European countries during the long summer days, where the UK, Norway, Sweden and the Baltic Sea offer up spectacular natural beauty, midnight sun, vast archipelagos and wild coasts. 

3. Alaska: Alaska’s wild lands, remote bays and bountiful wildlife make it one of the most adventure-filled destinations in the world. The summer months, with their long days and milder weather conditions, make for the best time to visit the gargantuan national parks, crashing glaciers and see once-in-a-lifetime wildlife.  

Winter Season Charter Destinations

The Caribbean is the focus of the winter yachting season, with St Barts, St Martin, the Virgin Islands and Bahamas the tip of the iceberg of what this island-spattered region has to offer. Yet think further afield too, and there are some dazzling destinations waiting for you.

1. Caribbean winter yachting destinations: Whether you opt for the pink sand beaches of the Bahamas, the perfect sailing conditions of the Leeward Islands, or the glamour of St Barts, you’ll find it in the Caribbean. From Jamaica’s legendary culture to the Dutch Antilles and Grenadines, there are corners of solitude, remote islands and lively beaches to discover. 

2. The America’s winter yachting destinations: Mexico and Florida share the same Caribbean waters but offer a completely different vibe for a yacht charter. Explore the flamboyant Florida Keys or venture along the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico in search of ancient ruins and wildlife-filled rainforests. 

3. South Pacific winter yachting destinations: There are few places dreamier than the South Pacific. Emerald-topped islands, golden atolls and fish-laden turquoise seas beg exploration, whether it’s a family holiday, romantic getaway or once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Countries such as Fiji, Tonga, the Solomon Islands, New Zealand, Australia and Papua New Guinea offer virtually year-round charter opportunities the winter months are the driest and offer the most favourable conditions. Try scuba diving, climb hidden waterfalls or get to know the local communities of these far-flung islands. 

4. Indian Ocean winter yachting destinations: The Seychelles and Maldives offer some of the most sublime cruising destinations on the planet, their iridescent waters teeming with marine life and their beaches powder white. Sri Lanka has a rich history and national parks filled with wildlife, while Mauritius’ underwater world is a maze of colourful coral reefs. 

When to book a yacht charter

If you’re planning on chartering a yacht in the peak season, book early! As with anything where demand is high, the sooner you get your deposit paid the better. Out of the peak times, you may be able to secure a more last-minute charter at a discounted price (see our article on How Much Does it Cost to Charter a Boat? ). As a general rule, you’ll want to allow 10-12 months in advance during peak times, and three to six months in advance for low season charters. But be sure to get in touch with us at Rightboat.com at any time of the year as we have boats all over the world waiting to be chartered and connections with all the top boat operators. We won’t leave you high and dry.

Preparing for the Yacht Charter Season: A Comprehensive Guide

Yacht season

Preparing for the yacht charter season requires meticulous planning, an understanding of the industry, and an appreciation for the finer details of yachting. This comprehensive guide provides the background knowledge needed to ensure a successful charter season.

Understanding the Yacht Charter Season

The yacht charter season’s length varies based on location and climatic conditions. For instance, winter seasons often find patrons sailing in sun-kissed places such as the Caribbean or Southeast Asia, while summer seasons head toward enticing Mediterranean waters. In essence, yacht charter destinations are purely seasonal.

A revealing insight into understanding the yacht charter season length is organically rooting oneself in this ephemeral transition. Knowing when to charter in a particular region is essential to avoid stormy seasons and unwelcome surprises. Having a deep understanding of the yacht charter season will significantly enhance your overall yachting experience.

Selecting Your Yacht

Making the best yacht choice is a vital decision that has a big impact on how well your charter season goes. Your decision should be carefully considered given the wide range of yacht classes that are available, each boasting special features and benefits. Take into account important elements like your budget, the intended charter destination, the number of people in your charter group, and the precise goal of your voyage. For those who are new to the yacht charter industry, conducting an in-depth study and seeking out plenty of consultations with seasoned experts is a great place to start. You can ensure that your yacht charter experience exactly matches your preferences and expectations by carefully taking into account these factors, which will ensure a memorable and pleasurable voyage on the high seas.

In addition, give consideration to the yacht’s seaworthiness while choosing it, especially if you want to hire it during a time of year with severe water conditions. To make sure that the yacht satisfies the appropriate safety requirements and is capable of handling possibly choppy conditions, it is crucial to carefully analyze its maintenance history and current state. These safety measures not only increase your comfort and safety throughout the charter, but they also make sailing easier and more fun.

Planning Your Charter Destination

It’s a good idea to prepare a basic itinerary for your yacht charter journey but keep in mind that one of the best things about yacht charters is their natural flexibility. Each destination provides a distinctive range of experiences, whether you decide to travel through the alluring Caribbean waters, explore the alluring history and culture of the Mediterranean, or set out on an adventurous voyage across Southeast Asia. 

Embrace the opportunity to fully plan your route, establish a comfortable sailing pace, identify points of interest and shore-side activities. Remember, the yacht is your mobile base, so freedom and flexibility are parts of the package.

Preparing for the Voyage

It’s essential to start your preparations for any journey by becoming familiar with the safety features of the ship and the right ways to evacuate in case of crises. This information serves as the cornerstone of a safe and thoughtfully thought-out voyage. Additionally, learning the fundamentals of navigation and becoming familiar with sailing terms will greatly improve crew communication, resulting in more efficient operations and increased confidence throughout the voyage.

Aside from this, pack smart. Space on a yacht is at a premium, so stick to essential items, more so, those that are sea-friendly. Non-marking shoes, swimsuits, light rain gear, sunblock, sunglasses, and hats should top your list.


Training and Certification

To ensure the safety of both you and your passengers, it is essential to acquire the necessary credentials before setting sail. For the purpose of using their waters, some areas require particular licenses or permissions, which must be obtained in advance. Having a thorough understanding of navigation and meteorology is also very helpful since it enables you to plan your cruise efficiently and make judgments about the weather and your route which will make sailing safer and more pleasurable.

Moreover, crew members should be well-versed in first-aid techniques and should be adept at emergency procedures. Investing time in training and certification will thus churn out a safe and remarkable yachting experience.

Maintenance and Repair Budget

Budgeting for maintenance and repair is a crucial step in preparing for the yacht charter season. Conduct routine checks and preempt any repairs and parts replacements regularly. Neglect in the maintenance aspect can lead to hefty repair costs or worse, safety implications.

In conclusion, preparing for the yacht charter season requires careful planning and understanding. It’s not just about selecting the perfect yacht or destination; it is also about understanding the dynamics of a yacht charter season, being equipped for emergencies, and having a grasp of the navigational requirements. By paying attention to all the aspects elaborated above, you set a course for a magnificent sailing adventure. As a final tip, remember, every sailing adventure is a learning experience, have fun as you navigate the learning tides!

Chartering a yacht is probably one of the ultimate choices in dream vacations for many.

Engaging in the beauty of the open sea in a luxurious setting and a great service is surely a thrilling and unforgettable experience.

The demand for yacht chartering has been on the rise over recent years, and yacht charter seasons are understandably busy periods.

Every charter destination will have its yacht charter season.

This refers to the months during which the cruising conditions are the most suitable, and hence, during such a time the charters will be more popular.

The charter season refers to the time of year when it’s best to rent a yacht for a vacation.

It’s also the time when most charter companies will be operating.

The two yacht charter seasons are the winter and the summer season.

These are dictated by the weather and the water conditions of the particular locations.

For instance, in the case of the Mediterranean the summer season is most popular, whereas in the case of the Caribbean the winter charter season is more in demand.

Both seasons will last around six months.

Here is a more detailed explanation of the yacht charter seasons, and related aspects.

Summer Charter Season

The Summer Season is a time for sunny weather and warm temperatures.

Several cultural affairs occur during this season too.

The Summer charter season starts off in late April, and runs through until mid-September.

The peak charter season in the Mediterranean is from July til August.

Another relatively popular summer destination is New England in the US.

Here however the summer season is considerably shorter as it runs from mid-June through August.

The high season runs between mid-July to mid-August.

The Mediterranean is definitely the world’s most popular yacht charter destination for the summer season.

Due to the temperate climate during such months, it’s an ideal time of year for the perfect vacation at sea.

The Italian Riviera and Sicily, and the Amalfi Coast are popular charter regions.

Then there’s Cannes and the French Riviera which are also very popular summer charter locations.

Other locations that are also sought after include Croatia, Greece, Monaco, Corsica, and as mentioned earlier, New England.

Famous events such as the Cannes Film Festival and the Monaco Grand Prix coincide with this season.

Winter Charter Season

The Winter Season is the ideal time for chartering a yacht if you are considering the Caribbean.

During this time of year, many get away from the cold weather to indulge in the sun of these popular locations.

The Winter charter season is also about six months long.

It kicks off in late October and runs through March.

The peak charter season in the Caribbean is from late December, during the Christmas period, and all through the month of March.

The Caribbean is considered to be the mecca for winter charters.

The Virgin Islands, the Bahamas, Turks & Caicos are popular locations where there are hundreds of beaches one can enjoy, and many beautiful locations to explore and indulge in.

The weather during this time in these locations is warm, making it ideal for yachting.

Thailand, the Seychelles, Tahiti and the South Pacific also make for very popular winter charter destinations.

Thailand, for instance, is ideal for those who like snorkeling, or if you plan to engage in island hopping.

Tahiti is also a great location for snorkeling, as well as diving and hiking as it is renowned for its natural beauty, and its intriguing black sand beaches.

It’s also worth noting that some destinations offer chartering all year round.

Florida, for instance, is a very popular destination regardless of the time of year.

The Bahamas offer hundreds of islands for exploration and adventuring.

Nassau is renowned for its numerous beaches and great golf courses, while The Exumas is popular for cliff diving and snorkelling.

Miami and the Florida Keys are popular cruising locations all year round too.

Luxury Yacht Dining Table

As a general rule of thumb, charters during high season can cost around 30% more than low season.

Therefore, the best time for signing up for a yacht charter is during the pre-season.

One should avoid waiting more than two weeks before the scheduled start date.

It is possible to charter off season.

However, this will mean that there’s bound to be fewer options than what you’d be able to find during the high or peak season.

During off season you might also encounter certain problems, such as managing to get crew members.

This is even more problematic if you plan to make a longer sea trip.

Moreover, the general weather conditions will not be as favourable as they are during the peak season.

The shoulder season is the term used to describe the middle point between seasons.

This means that it’s the time between the high and the low season, and between the low and high season.

The majority of yachts tend to be booked by this time.

However, it’s also a time when companies will be trying to clear out what’s left, in order to make room for new inventory for the upcoming season.

As a result, the shoulder season might be a good time to book.

How Long is a Yachting Season?

When planning your yacht charter adventure, one common question that often emerges is, “How long is a yacht charter season?” Unlike more traditional holiday seasons, the yachting season isn’t set in stone and can vary significantly depending on a range of factors, including the location, weather conditions, and personal preferences. To understand the nuances behind this concept, let’s dive into the intricate world of yachting seasons.

Deciding when to charter a yacht can be a difficult decision

Everything You Need to Know About the Yachting Season

When exploring the timeline of a yacht charter season, it’s important to note that these seasons aren’t globally uniform. Each region has its distinct yachting season influenced by local climate, culture, and regulations. Regardless of location, the yachting season is typically divided into three periods: high season, low season, and shoulder season.

The high season aligns with the peak tourist season in most places. The weather is typically at its finest, and charter conditions are optimal. The waters are often bustling with activity, and local ports teem with vibrant nightlife and events. However, due to the high demand, yacht charter rates are at their highest during this period. Although the busier season, it is of course possible to find peace and quiet from the madness- and this is one of the many perks of yacht charter.

In contrast, the low season aligns with the off-peak tourist season, when the weather can be less favorable. The advantage, though, is that the seas are quieter, the atmosphere more serene, and the charter rates more affordable, making it perfect for those seeking a peaceful escape.

The shoulder season straddles the space between the high and low seasons. During this period, you can still enjoy decent weather and reduced rates. It’s a good compromise for those who want to avoid the peak season crowd without compromising too much on the weather.

How Weather Patterns Affect Yacht Charter Seasons

Weather patterns play a crucial role in determining the length and timing of the yacht charter season. In regions vulnerable to extreme weather events such as hurricanes or monsoons, the yacht charter season is typically shorter and carefully planned around these periods. Safety is paramount in the world of yachting, and all responsible charter companies will avoid operating in potentially dangerous weather conditions.

Sudden weather changes can pose safety risks, making it crucial for yacht charter operators to be aware of typical weather patterns and seasonal changes when planning their schedules. Consequently, understanding the local weather trends of your chosen yachting destination is critical. Researching how long a yacht charter season lasts and how it aligns with the region’s weather patterns is a crucial step in planning a successful yacht charter. If you are unsure please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Our charter brokers at 212 Yachts have years of professional yacht charter guidance and experience under their belts, and would be more than happy to advise.

Can You Charter When It’s Off-Season?

Yes, chartering a yacht during the off-season is possible and can offer its unique benefits. The term “off-season” can often be misleading as it doesn’t necessarily indicate bad weather. Many popular yachting destinations still boast enjoyable weather during the off-season. Plus, the lower demand often translates to discounted charter rates and a less crowded environment, which can be a win-win for many yacht enthusiasts.

However, it’s essential to remember that weather conditions can be unpredictable during the off-season, and certain services and attractions may not be available. It’s always a good idea to do thorough research and consult with yacht charter experts to ensure a smooth and enjoyable off-season yachting experience.

An Overview of Yachting Seasons

What are high, low and shoulder seasons.

The high season is when demand is at its highest, often coinciding with the best weather and busiest ports. On the flip side, the low season corresponds to the time of the year when demand is at its lowest, which is often accompanied by less ideal weather conditions. The shoulder season sits between these two, providing a balance of relatively good weather and reduced prices.

The Pros and Cons of Chartering During High, Low or Shoulder Seasons

Every yachting season has its pros and cons, and understanding these can help you make an informed decision about when to charter a yacht.

Chartering during the high season offers the best weather conditions, a vibrant social scene, and a myriad of activities. However, the increased demand during this time often results in higher charter rates and crowded marinas.

On the other hand, the low season is characterized by peace and tranquility, and charter rates are usually at their lowest. However, the weather might be less predictable, and some facilities may be closed.

The shoulder season can be an ideal choice for those seeking a balance between price and good weather. It offers the potential for fewer crowds, reduced rates, and decent weather conditions.

Some Tips for Planning a Yachting Trip During the Yacht Season

Planning your yachting trip during the yacht season requires careful consideration. Here are some tips to ensure a smooth and enjoyable yacht charter adventure:

  • Do thorough research : Understand the typical weather patterns, cultural events, and local regulations of your planned destination. This will help you anticipate what to expect and prepare accordingly.
  • Consider your budget : High season, with its premium prices, might not be the best choice for everyone. Off-peak or shoulder seasons can offer excellent value for money, and gives more room more potential discounts.
  • Book in advance : Popular yachts and destinations get booked quickly, especially during the high season. Early booking ensures you get the yacht of your choice and can help you secure good deals.

Understanding the Yacht Charter Season

Yacht chartering revolves around particular periods when it’s most pleasurable. These times are affected by weather, destination attractiveness, and cultural occasions. Knowing these trends is essential for planning a successful charter experience.

Spring brings nice weather to many places, perfect for cruising in the Mediterranean or Caribbean. Summer is ideal for swimming in the sea in places like the Mediterranean and Bahamas. Autumn’s mild temperatures and fewer people make it great for exploring places such as New England or Greece. People seeking warmer climates go to the French Riviera or British Virgin Islands in winter.

Furthermore, certain destinations, such as Alaska or Antarctica, have specific seasons due to extreme weather. Cultural events or holidays can also affect demand and availability.

This tradition dates back centuries, when people would sail during suitable weather. Today, luxury yachts continue this nautical tradition, offering unforgettable experiences during the various charter seasons all over the world.

Popular Yacht Charter Destinations

When it comes to yacht charters, some places are better than the rest. Three of the most popular destinations include:

  • The South Pacific – For a more remote and exotic experience. Tahiti, Fiji, and the Maldives are pure paradise with white-sand beaches and coral reefs.

Yacht charters can also offer themed experiences. Gourmet dining cruises and wellness retreats give a touch of luxury.

How Long Is Yacht Charter Season?

By understanding how long yacht charter season is, you can properly plan for your next yacht charter vacation. Here is everything you need to know.

Charter season is the time of year that’s best for renting a yacht for vacations. That is also when most of the charter companies in the world are operating. Typically, there are two yacht charter seasons . That includes the summer season and the winter season.

The summer season runs from the beginning of May until the end of October, while the winter one commences in November to April. However, there are a few exceptions to these time zones, depending on where you are. Some countries will have a shorter season, while others will have a longer one.

Whether you are looking for a one-off charter, a regular source of income, or something in between, signing up for a yacht charter is a great way to enjoy a fun holiday. Keep in mind the best time to sign up for a yacht charter is during the pre-season and up to a week or two before the scheduled start date.

Yacht Charter Seasons

Yacht charter seasons are usually dictated by the water and weather conditions in the area where the yacht is stationed. Many things can affect the onset and duration of a season, including natural disasters, local preferences, and even politics.

According to experts who deal in yacht charters worldwide, other factors can influence when a yacht charter season starts and ends. These include the building seasons from one year to another. Some companies will use up their existing inventory before beginning operations with new boats or newly acquired boats.

Other charter companies will decide to start the business after a particular boat has been on a lease, while others may stop because they have not found an appropriate boat for their clientele to use.

Based on all these factors, you can see how long each season can be and what best fits your needs during each season. If you are planning, it is advisable to book a vessel before it becomes fully booked. If you opt for something last-minute, you will have fewer options and may need to compromise on your choices or settle for something that is not exactly what you want or need.

What Are Shoulder Seasons In Yachting?

The middle point of a season is called the shoulder season. That consists of the time between high and low seasons and between low and high seasons. It can come during a particular season, such as early summer or late spring. It could run from September to October and April to May in some countries.

A good number of yacht charters may already be booked by then, while other companies may still have availability depending on the operators and their business goals.

However, this is also true for the other end of the season, when the peak season ends or just before it ends, with most companies trying to clear out some of their inventory. That is in order to make room for new inventory coming in for the new season.

Depending on your needs for a vessel, this could be an ideal time to book one since there are choices but not so many that you will find it difficult to choose one from among them.

That said, this shoulder season doesn’t last long; therefore, you need to plan, or you might find yourself having problems getting the ideal yacht. If you’re planning on booking a San Diego yacht charter , booking your charter in May or June will be your best bet, because as the summer continues, your choice of dates will get smaller and smaller.

Can I Charter Out Of Season?

Yes, it is possible to charter out of season. However, that will translate to fewer options for chartering a yacht than getting one during the high or peak seasons. During peak seasons, there are many more choices available for you to choose.

You might also encounter problems getting crew members for the vessel, especially if you want to make longer sea trips. In other words, book early and be aware of what kind of season this is so that it won’t take you by surprise. You don’t want to arrive at your destination and find out that no one is available to go with your group on this particular trip since they all have assignments elsewhere.

Also, keep in mind that the reason why there are seasons is because of the general weather conditions. Peak yacht charter seeason is when the weather is best, which also means demand is highest.

How Long Is A Yacht Charter?

Some companies offer week-long blocks or ten days. However, if you have the time and resources, you can charter for several weeks, a month, or even two.

The minimum number of days for a yacht charter typically varies between two and four. Most choose to book their charter for a week. The average cruise with a week-long charter will cost approximately $15,000.

Most companies charge around $15,000 per week, and the price is dependent on the type of yacht and its equipment. A luxury yacht in a premium location could cost up to almost $50,000 per week! The good news is there ar emany charter companies that charge far less than that, and you can look up different locations and yacht sizes that always show their pricing.

The Bottom Line

Understanding how long yacht charter season is in the destination of your choice is critical for planning. Booking in the middle of peak season will be more expensive and give you far fewer options than booking a few months ahead of the season.

Yachting has become extremely popular over the past decade, especially since the launch of Beelow Deck, a famous reality tv series that shows off the yacthing experience.

Our advice is to do your research in the off season and book early to give yourself the best options and pricing available in the market.

When is a yacht charter season

When going on a luxury yacht charter, one of the most difficult decisions is deciding where to go—a difficult decision simply because there are so many amazing places out there and each location offers something different. Different months of the year lend themselves to some locations better than others.

Marina landscape of Castries, St Lucia

The best time to go to certain locations depends on many variables, from the climate and weather to when national holidays are taking place. The High Season of locations is the most sought after and therefore the most expensive. If you plan to go for a yacht charter in the High Season of a location, we recommend booking well in advance to ensure you have the widest pool of yachts available to choose from.

Mediterranean yacht charters

Grotto Ionian yacht charter

The Mediterranean is a hugely popular sailing destination, and it is clear why! Croatia, Greece, Turkey, the west coast of Italy, Monaco, the French Riviera, Sardinia, Sicily and Spain all make for the perfect yacht charter destinations with their history, culture, scenery, beautiful weather conditions and of course their delicious culinary traditions. The Mediterranean has always been and will continue to be, a yachters paradise!

When thinking about the best time to charter in the Mediterranean there are a couple of important things to consider when planning a charter. How do you feel about crowds? What weather do you enjoy? What kind of activities interest you?

The months of July and August are the Mediterranean’s High Season months. These months are bursting with colour, life and boast the years’ warmest, driest temperatures. The sun’s warmth will have made the sea ideal for swimming and water sports. The High Season also benefits from having the longest days, so that you can fill them with activities, sailing and time with loved ones. On the other hand, they are the busiest months due to the majority of European schools being on holiday. Towns will be bustling with visitors and life. Yacht charter rates will be at  their highest during these times and advance bookings for certain activities and on shore visits are recommended. As the season is so sought after, it gets booked up quickly.

If the stunning country of Greece has taken your fancy, please be aware that during the months of July and August the Meltemi winds, in the Aegean, are at their strongest. These winds impact charters in the Cyclades as strong winds can stop boats leaving the port. Consequently, many charters go to the Ionian Islands or the Saronic Gulf during these times.

June and September are quieter months and are a little cooler than July and August. The weather however is still very pleasant and come September, the sea is still perfect for swimming. In fact, September is considered to be the most beautiful month of the season in the Mediterranean. Those months are also popular with sailing yachts and the clients who enjoy the thrill of sailing but still want plenty of time to explore on land, too. Chartering a yacht in Mid-Season also allows travellers to visit these places in a more relaxed fashion, allowing time for a deeper appreciation of the destination.

Finally, the remaining months of the year are known as the Low Season. Chartering in the Low Season is ideal for guests who prefer quieter times, less heat and fewer crowds. Many attractions, shops and events that rely on the tourist trade may have reduced opening hours or may be closed completely, as the demand simply isn’t there. However, the beauty of the area can be enhanced in those quieter times. This period is also popular with true sailors, as the winds are somewhat stronger and more frequent.

Caribbean yacht charters

Caribbean yacht charters

Who doesn’t love incredible turquoise seas, sandy beaches, cocktails and palm trees? The Caribbean is simply dreamy. This yacht charter destination is a home to some of the best sailing in the world and what makes it even more appealing is that the High Season is during the northern hemisphere’s winter.

Despite the weather being mostly warm all year round, an average of 26 degrees, anyone booking a charter in the Caribbean must be aware that the Caribbean has a hurricane season. The hurricane season runs from early June through to the end of November and it mostly affects the Leeward Islands (includes the Virgin Islands). During this period there is a reduced number of boats available in this area. Some will use this period for the maintenance and others will likely head south to the Grenadines to avoid the worst of the weather.

The season starts to pick up in early November and by Thanksgiving the High Season is well and truly underway. Within the High Season there are two peak weeks to be aware of: Christmas and New Year, called the festive period. What better way is there to spend such a magical holiday than on a yacht with family and friends? The festive season period gets booked up well in advance, so we suggest planning your yacht charter a year ahead to get the best choice of yachts. The North American ‘Spring Break’ in late March is also a very popular charter period to be aware of.

Generally speaking, the best time to charter in the Caribbean would be November through to July, although the seasons in some areas of the Caribbean vary slightly. Take a look below to see the exact High and Low Season months for specific parts of the Caribbean.

Low Season: June through October

French Polynesia

Huahine French Polynesia

French Polynesia is an extraordinary place to sail with over 100 islands to explore. It is a relatively unexplored part of the world but everyone who has sailed is mesmerised by the place. There is a large coral atoll chain, incredible landscapes, perfect snorkelling and diving areas, kitesurfing, lagoons and rainforest peaks. We recommend that if you charter here you take at least 10 days for your charter, as covering the area takes time and should be done at a gentle pace.

The most desirable cruising areas are the islands of Bora-Bora, Raiatea, Tahaa, and Huahine.  These islands are close to each other and offer a fantastic variety of places to explore above and below the water’s edge. They offer such an array of experiences to be enjoyed. On the coast line of Raiatea, seek out Polynesian temples and ancient petroglyphs carved in the stones. From Ha’amene Bay hike up into the lush green mountains, making sure to enjoy the staggering views and visit the vanilla farms. Snorkel amongst the colourful coral reefs and schools of tropical fish in the shallow waters between Taha and Bora Bora. If you are lucky enough you may even be able to swim with eagle rays. These islands certainly make for an unforgettable charter.

French Polynesia has two seasons, just like the Caribbean and Mediterranean, however here the High Season is commonly known as the Dry Season compared to the Low Season being the Wet Season. July and August (High Season) are considered the best months for visiting as the weather is dry and mostly predictable. The temperatures are between 20 and 28 degrees. During these popular times prices are higher and forward planning is required to book into restaurants and attractions.

The Low Season, or Wet Season, is November through to April. These months can be very humid with temperatures beginning around 30 degrees. Chartering in the Low Season is recommended for guests who prefer quieter times with less crowds.

It should also be noted that while French Polynesia is located on the edge of the hurricane belt, hurricanes can still occur during the months of December and January.

Travelling during Mid Season (the months of April, May, October and November) is also a good time to travel this area.

When Is The Yacht Charter Season In The Caribbean?

yachting charter season

Yacht charters in the Caribbean are a great way to experience the beauty and culture of the islands. Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway or an adventure packed with activities , there’s something for everyone. But when should you plan your charter? The Caribbean yacht charter season is typically from mid-October to the second week in August, depending on where you go. In this article, we’ll explore the best times to visit each island and what activities you can enjoy during your stay.

Best Time To Visit The Caribbean

The Caribbean is a popular destination for yacht charters due to its warm, tropical weather and beautiful scenery. The best time to visit the Caribbean region is generally between December and May when the weather is at its most pleasant and the seas are the calmest. During this period, wind speeds are lower, allowing for safer and more enjoyable sailing. The days also tend to be sunnier during this time of year with mild temperatures.

The summer months of June to September can bring the occasional rain storm so it’s wise to research the area before booking a charter .

Yacht Charter Seasons In The Virgin Islands

The Virgin Islands is the perfect location for a yacht charter vacation. With its clear waters, white sandy beaches and lush tropical landscapes, it’s no wonder that this Caribbean paradise is a popular destination. During the winter months, temperatures in the Virgin Islands remain relatively mild and comfortable making them ideal for yachting enthusiasts looking to escape the cold weather of the northern hemisphere.

Experiences on yacht charters in the Virgin Islands can range from cruising around neighboring islands and exploring secluded coves to snorkeling amongst vibrant coral reefs and sunning on white sand beaches. Depending on your itinerary , you may also have the chance to visit bustling towns and villages and go ashore for some island hopping activities. No matter what type of experience you’re looking for, sailing around the Virgin Islands is sure to be an unforgettable journey.

The peak season for yacht charters in the Virgin Islands runs from late November through early August. However, with plenty of options available year-round you can find great deals if you’re willing to sail during off-peak season which runs from Mid-August through October.

Yacht Charter Seasons In The Bahamas

The Virgin Islands offer some of the most beautiful and serene sailing experiences in the Caribbean. With emerald waters and lush tropical shorelines, it’s no surprise that this area is a popular choice for sailing enthusiasts.

Northland West of the Virgin Islands lies the Bahamas – another popular destination for yacht charters. Generally, the season runs from November to August with prime months being January through May. The Bahamas provide a unique experience as they’re made up of over 700 islands and cays, so there are plenty of places to explore while out at sea. The crystal clear waters make this area ideal for snorkeling, scuba diving , and fishing. With its amazing variety of marine life, it’s sure to be an unforgettable experience.

From the tranquil beauty of the Virgin Islands to the breathtaking scenery of the Bahamas – both areas offer an amazing opportunity to explore some of nature’s greatest wonders while enjoying a relaxing vacation afloat on a luxurious charter yacht.

Yacht Charter Seasons In The Leeward Islands

The Caribbean is a picturesque paradise, with glistening turquoise waters, lush tropical islands, and vibrant coral reefs. For those looking to experience all the region has to offer in style and comfort, chartering a yacht is the perfect way to explore. Yacht charters in the Leeward Islands are available all year round; however, the optimal time for an unforgettable sailing experience is from November through April.

This period marks the start of the winter season, when temperatures are moderate and rainfall is minimal. The seas are calm and sailable throughout this period, allowing for stress-free cruising between each island destination. Additionally, there are plenty of activities that can be enjoyed during this time such as snorkeling in crystal clear waters or kayaking along secluded beaches. With so much to see and do in the Caribbean during these months, it’s no wonder why yacht charter season here is so popular.

Yacht Charter Seasons In The Windward Islands

The Windward Islands of the Caribbean offer their own unique experiences during the yacht charter season. Between May and October, these islands provide beautiful turquoise waters with consistent trade winds to help sailboats navigate around the islands. Visitors can also enjoy a variety of water sports such as diving, kayaking, wakeboarding, and surfing. Due to its temperate climate, this is an ideal period for visitors looking to spend some quality time in paradise.

'Below Deck' Shows A Piece Of Yacht Charter Season

yachting charter season

Even though most reality shows air over the course of several months, they usually film over a very small window, much shorter than the weeks it takes to air the footage. And on a show like Below Deck that takes place during a certain time frame, timing can be very important. So how long is a Below Deck charter season? Well, that depends. If you're thinking specifically of the season of Below Deck filmed for TV, the answer can be just a few weeks — the show tapes over a very short period and Eros charters may each last for about three days, according to Yacht Charter World. If you're speaking more generally about full charter seasons for yachts like the one shown on Below Deck , they can last for months at a time . Depending on where you are and where you want to go, the season starts at different times.

For example, Below Deck films in the Caribbean during the winter, in January — that's part of the regional charter season. That means that January is the prime time to travel in the Caribbean on a huge yacht. But even though Below Deck wraps up quickly, the cast could easily jump to a new gig once their TV commitments are complete, because the full Caribbean charter season is four to five months long. That is a long time to be stuck on boats in close working quarters, which is why Below Deck shows the crew taking breaks, having days off, and unwinding between charters. If not, they'd go insane. They're insane enough without having to work for months straight.

And because renting yachts is a worldwide phenomenon, there's no set time or set place where charters are always going on or come to a total stop. Within reason, everywhere that there's water, you can hire a boat to take you during some part of the year.

For the employees, they can choose to work as much or as little of each season as they like, picking their busy time of year depending on where, when, and how long they want to work.

yachting charter season

The time can also be different depending on where you are on the globe, from hot locations where November-April is the preferable season to travel, to the summer season, described by YCF as covering the Mediterranean and Europe, which picks up in May and lasts through October.

If you want to charter a yacht, you can do it at pretty much any time, you just might not encounter the Below Deck crew. To up your chances of meeting the reality TV cast, then heading down to the Bahamas early in the year is your best shot. And it will be lovely weather for a charter.

Off-Season Yacht Charters

A yacht charter vacation off-season could be just the ticket

By Editorial Team   24 January 2023

Booking a yacht charter out of season does not mean compromising on your luxury yacht experience. Many savvy charterers secure a vessel during the shoulder months that flank peak season and still enjoy the clement weather and warm seas in popular destinations such as the Mediterranean and Caribbean . With typically lower costs, quieter anchorages and fewer tourists, an off-season yacht charter can be a highly appealing prospect.

Interested? From the best months to go to the top locations to visit, we've outlined everything you need to know about booking a yacht rental out of season.

Benefits to booking an off-season charter

Booking a yacht vacation in the off-peak season has some major advantages:

Prime berths in the world's most coveted marinas: such as those located in the French Riviera , can be easier to access in quieter periods of the year. The only caveat if you are keen to soak up a buzzy ambiance: it is likely to be when there are fewer if any major events taking place. But, you'll be to benefit from reduced costs (berths are usually less expensive during off-season) and there will still be an abundance of things to see and do regardless.

Secure a popular yacht : unless you book your yacht charter far in advance (and even then there is no guarantee, for example, a guest's booking may have a rolled onto the next year), it can be tricky to get the most popular charter vessels on the market for your chosen dates in peak cruising season. An off-season charter significantly increases your chance of obtaining your desired yacht.

Reduced charter costs : the average yacht charterer can usually secure a lower rate (at least 15-20%, sometimes up to a staggering 60%) if they decide to go in an off-peak month. Generally speaking, the discount increases in proportion to how out of season the scheduled vacation is: many owners will offer bigger discounts the closer it gets to the vessel entering its yard period.

Cheaper flights: not only will you likely pay less for the charter itself, but the cost of flights is typically cheaper outside of peak season, meaning more money to spend on experiences that truly matter during your yacht rental vacation.

Blissful solitude: one of the biggest draws for chartering during the off-season is that it will be undoubtedly quieter, wherever you choose to cruise. Bring able to relish this tranquility, from walking barefoot along barely-frequented beaches, to meandering around popular attractions without the queues, to making last-minute reservations at Michelin-starred restaurants with ease, adds to its attractiveness.

Milder climes:  especially in the Mediterranean, which can be more pleasant and easier to deal with, as temperatures usually shoot up dramatically in the peak months of July and August.

Note: if you have your eyes set on a particular yacht, then do ask your broker for its annual charter itinerary, as not all charter vessels (especially larger ones) will stay in one place. Many move from one region's low season to another's high (for example, staying in the Mediterranean during the summer before moving to the Caribbean for winter).

Some remain in one cruising destination all-year-round due to owner preferences, but do not take this as a given if you want to secure a specific yacht. It could be the case that the owner decides to limit the vessel's charter availability so that they can enjoy off-season cruising grounds themselves.

Understanding yacht charter seasons

off season yacht charter beach club

If you are a first-time charterer, then it is important to understand the different charter seasons prior to booking your vacation, as it is not as straightforward as you might think.

That's because a charter season can refer to both the weather patterns of a chosen destination (divided into summer and winter), as well as the months of the year when yacht charter demand is at its highest (divided into high and low seasons or peak/off-peak seasons). 

A charter season can refer to both the weather and water patterns of a destination and the months of the year when yacht charter demand is at its peak

High and low periods can also fall within the summer and winter seasons, such as the case in the East and West Mediterranean and Northern Europe. Other popular cruising grounds, like the Caribbean and the Indian Ocean , see their peak months in the wintertime, especially during Christmas and New Year, with their off-peak period being hurricane season.

It is also worth considering the off-peak month you decide to go, as some are better than others. For example, in a number of Mediterranean regions in late October through to April, temperatures will be much cooler and weather conditions less predictable, so if you are keen on water-toy related activities, it would be wise to avoid these months. Meanwhile during the Caribbean's hurricane season (rare, but officially starts in late July to early October) the region can experience high humidity.

Yacht Charter Seasons

Where can I go on an off-season charter?

Not all charter destinations lend themselves to off-peak charters (for example, the chiselled emerald fjords of Norway may be best marvelled at during the summer if you are looking for warmer climes and not an explorer yacht odyssey) but there are many standout locations that deserve your attention for a yacht charter in the off-peak season.

The Mediterranean: September and October

amalfi coast off season

Many superyacht hotspots like the Amalfi Coast, Cyclades and Croatia are still ripe for exploration in September and October

Chartering the Mediterranean  outside of the peak summer months of July and August is well-worth considering. Many Mediterranean hotspots are still ripe for exploration in  September and October , where you'll be able to enjoy a gloriously slower pace in idyllic surrounds and without the stifling temperatures. As yacht charter connoisseurs, here are our top picks:

Amalfi Coast : sip Prosecco Superiore from your sundeck and enjoy chocolate box-perfect views while enjoying deliciously mellow temperatures of around 25 degrees.

Croatia : an Adriatic delight where temperatures range from 22-27 degrees in the shoulder seasons. It's an excellent time to discover its fairytale showcase of lush isles like  Korčula and Mljet or the historic thrills of Dubrovnik . 

Corsica : boasting sea temperatures of around 23 degrees well into fall, Corsica is a wonderful choice for late summer water toy fun and offers secluded golden stretches of sand as well as gin-clear waters.

French Riviera : the world is still your oyster in this iconic charter location during shoulder seasons, except in Cannes and Monaco when their respective yacht shows take place in September.

Cyclades : Greece 's majestic island cluster still beckons in September and October, boasting fabulous weather and fewer tourists. Explore the tumbling whitewashed hills of Santorini at its most sublime, the bonanza of hip beach clubs in Mykonos , or delve into the peacock blue waters of the sun-drenched, tranquil islands of Paros, Milos or Naxos.

The Balearics : discover the heavenly island gems of Mallorca , Menorca, Formentera and Ibiza well into October. Think gorgeous calas, bays and islets, with fantastic swimming temperatures in these cruising playgrounds. Hedonists: you can still catch the last summer spectaculars on the White Isle.

Turkey : admire soaring ancient ruins, barely-frequented coves, and a multitude of spellbinding beaches with pleasant climates well into the end of October.

5 reasons to visit Ravello on your Amalfi Coast yacht charter

The Caribbean: April-June


April to early July is still an excellent time to visit on a superyacht charter in the Caribbean

The Caribbean's shoulder season which runs from April to early July (before hurricane season) is still an excellent time to visit on a superyacht charter. In these months, guests can expect superb weather with a gentle breeze, but with the added bonus of considerably fewer visitors. Explore cultural delights on land without the hoards of people, or take great joy exploring popular scuba diving spots that become almost exclusively yours.

St. Vincent and the Grenadines: ideal for island-hopping with more than 32 islands and cays to see, plus these islands are considered to be a very low risk during the hurricane seasons.

Bahamas: crystalline waters, splendid weather, and spectacular marine life, which includes the  swimming pigs in the Exumas

Barbados: slightly hotter during the shoulder season, but expect pearl-white beaches where you can roam freely without a single soul to disturb you.

British Virgin Islands:  enjoy its tropical landscapes in utter bliss: there is a dramatic reduction in tourist numbers during these months. It truly is unbridled escapism at its finest.

Bequia: one of the Caribbean’s best-kept secrets

Indian Ocean and the South Pacific: March-May or September

tahiti bora bora

Indian Ocean and South Pacific yacht rentals can provide awe-inspiring charter possibilities in off-peak seasons.

The Mediterranean and the Caribbean charter circuits typically get the most attention, but the Indian Ocean and South Pacific  should definitely be pondered if you want to cruise in off-peak seasons. They provide awe-inspiring charter possibilities: from floating in stunning turquoise lagoons to reef diving that bursts into a kaleidoscope of color. A vacation here certainly leaves guests yearning for more. These are our favorite superyacht hotspots out of season:

The Maldives: an excellent all-year-round option, as these islands lie outside the cyclone belt, plus temperatures here do not wildly vary thanks to the archipelago's position on the equator.

Tahiti: a mesmerizing wonderland in the South Pacific ideal for island-hopping to your heart's content, as well as boasting incredible volcanic landscapes.

Fiji: far removed from the tourist trail, where you can glimpse its magical flora and fauna, reefs, and rainforests in almost total seclusion.

Screen Rant

10 below deck charter guests who will never return to the franchise.

While the charter guests who appear on Below Deck have a great time while filming the show, many aren't invited back for a number of reasons.

  • Some charter guests on Below Deck have caused unnecessary drama and won't likely return due to bad behavior.
  • Captain Glenn Shephard from Below Deck Sailing Yacht faced backlash from Barrie, who called him two-faced.
  • Former guest Dr. Francis Martinis will not return to Below Deck after he was arrested for faking prescriptions.

The Below Deck franchise has featured many charter guests since 2013, many of whom will never return . The Bravo series focuses on expensive charters with wealthy guests who have attitude problems and over-the-top demands. That includes Charter guest Alexis Bellino, who boarded Captain Lee Rosbach’s yacht with her boyfriend at the time, Andy Bohn. She was disrespectful and made everyone uncomfortable with her and Andy's PDA. She even insulted crew members after featuring on the show.

Like Alexis, Delores Flora from Below Deck season 8 was a terrible guest. Not only did she misbehave, but she also got drunk and s wam while intoxicated, which is not only not allowed, it frightened the crew members. Delores got kicked out of the yacht the next day. These guests created unnecessary drama on the boat and will likely never return like a few others from the franchise.

Barrie and Tony Drewitt Barlow had a decent time in the Below Deck Sailing Yacht seasons 2 and 3. Despite that, they left with a bitter taste because of Captain Glenn Shephard. In 2021, Barrie participated in a podcast, Pita Party: The Podcast , where he claimed that Captain Glenn bothered him while using his phone .

Barrie said, “he (Captain Glenn) was a two-face b*stard,” adding that he just didn’t like his presence.

7 Frank Fay

Below deck mediterranean.

In Below Deck Mediterranean season 7, Charter guest Frank Fay had a thing for second stew Kyle Viljoen. He pursued him on the yacht, but unfortunately, their relationship didn’t last. Frank will likely never return to the series as long as Captain Sandy Yawn allows Kyle to work for her. Even if Kyle quits, Frank wouldn’t want to be in an environment that would remind him of his failed relationship.

6 Erica Rose

Erica Rose appeared on Below Deck Sailing Yacht two seasons in a row. Erica was highly offensive toward the crew member, as well as her husband, Charles Sanders, and to make things worse, she left the crew with a measly tip , leading fans to slam her on social media. Ultimately, Erica had to apologize for her bad attitude but never returned to give the crew the tip they deserved. Nobody on Below Deck Sailing Yacht would ever want to return.

5 Justin Guarini

Justin Guarini’s time on Below Deck Sailing Yacht was not dramatic at all; however, he’ll probably never return to the series. Justin wouldn’t return because he wasn't the primary guest. He joined his friend, Kim, who wanted to enjoy a luxury yacht trip. It was more of a one-and-done deal. Secondly, nobody recognized him at all. Viewers later realized who he was and how he was the runner-up on American Idol season 1. Justin is a theatre artist and has made a name for himself. However, it was embarrassing that so many fans had no clue who he was .

Below Deck: 8 Charter Guests With The Worst Attitudes

4 johnny damon.

Johnny Damon’s time at Below Deck Med was full of explosive moments. Once, he sent the food back, citing that the experience wasn’t “five stars.” On another occasion, his wife, Michelle, created drama by yelling at the owner of another yacht . Overall, the experience was simply terrible on both sides. Crew members didn’t love Johnny and his wife, and the couple didn’t respect the crew members. It is unlikely that Captain Sandy would want to host the couple again as long as she’s in charge.

3 Krystal Murphy

Former charter guest Krystal Murphy boarded Captain Lee’s yacht with her friends. She immediately began showing red flags, drinking, and just being a menace. Krystal fought with her friend, Chelsea, creating unnecessary drama. She even passed out and punched a friend in the face. Former Chief Stew Kate Chastain disliked serving Krystal and called her a “spoiled brat;” she wanted to throw her off the yacht. Nowadays, Krystal has seemingly become a more private person. It doesn’t seem like Krystal would want to be on TV again.

2 Steve Bradley

Below Deck fans should remember Steve Bradley as he made many appearances on the show. In Below Deck season 3, he wanted a foam party and demanded the crew to figure it out and follow his commands, acting like a king. In Below Deck season 6, Steve made more outrageous requests. Apart from being a wild guest, Steve was entitled and acted inappropriately at times . No Below Deck captain would want to host him again as he didn't come off as very likable.

1 Dr. Francis Martinis

Below deck mediterranean & below deck sailing yacht.

Dr. Francis Martinis from Below Deck Med and Below Deck Sailing Yacht has a zero chance of returning. While the former charter guest didn’t have too many issues on the show, his personal life issues will stop him from appearing on Bravo again. According to TMZ , Dr. Francis and his wife, Jessica, were arrested for filling out fake prescriptions in December 2023 . The couple used the names of Below Deck stars and got caught red-handed. The Below Deck franchise would never want to welcome felons, especially when their mugshots are all over the internet.

Below Deck airs Mondays at 9 p.m. EDT on Bravo.

‘Below Deck’ Sails Into a New Era

With a different captain at the helm and new production elements, the reality show about charter yachts is switching up its style.

Starting a new season of “ Below Deck ” can be similar to returning to summer camp as a kid — you know it’s going to be fun and that you’ll be in the same environment, but some of the people will be different and you’re not quite sure what the vibes will be.

This time around, in particular, feels that way because for the first time in the show’s 11-season run, Captain Lee Rosbach is no longer at the helm. It’s a pivotal moment for a franchise that has become one of the most popular entities in the sprawling universe of reality TV since premiering on Bravo in 2013 . The show’s appeal was built on endless romances between various crew members (“boatmances,” as they came to be known), horrible charter guests and some sort of passive-aggressive fight about how many shackles of the anchor chain should be in the water. And there was always Rosbach presiding over the drama as he trudged around the boat, reeling off one liners like “I’m madder than a pissed-on chicken” and “we screwed the pooch so many times we should have a litter of puppies running around.”

At the center of the show now is Kerry Titheradge (the stern yet goofy captain of “Below Deck Adventure” fame), who is managing the Motor Yacht Saint David with the cheeky chief stew Fraser Olender by his side.

With that change in captain, the energy on the boat — both onscreen and off — is different, according to Olender.

“I feel like Kerry this season, as opposed to Lee, has a no B.S. attitude, which I love with him,” Olender said in an interview. “With Kerry, he taught me a lot and sort of forced to me confront issues directly with my team, work them out, as opposed to making executive decisions too soon.”

This shift in management style changes the central conflict — whereas the drama once focused on the captain swiftly kicking out any unpleasant crew member (as we might have seen with Rosbach), the drama now focuses on the whole crew trying to get along (since Titheradge gives people those second chances).

Additionally, Olender noted that the captain’s relationship with the crew can also affect the drama on board.

“Captains absolutely do get involved, whether they know it or not,” Olender said, adding that for the crew, everything is about “trying to impress your captain.”

This phenomenon plays out early in the new season when the lead deckhand, Ben Willoughby, called out a fellow crew member over the radios about not wearing a life vest — something he easily could have done in private. The drama that followed became an interpersonal conflict between the two of them, both with the ultimate goal of impressing Titheradge. (Of course, the two deckhands had kissed on the previous crew night out, which is more in line with the “Below Deck” drama viewers are used to.)

For “Below Deck” showrunners, the changeovers in the cast allowed them to rethink what the show would look like.

From the season premiere, it was immediately apparent that Rosbach’s absence wasn’t the only change this season: The filming is sleeker, the daily, multicourse meals prepared by the chef are given their own glamour shots and the cameras sometimes cut to the perspectives of yachties running around on deck and through the galley.

“Our showrunner, Lauren Simms, is an avid consumer of all different kinds of media,” Noah Samton, a senior vice president of unscripted current production for NBCUniversal, said in an interview. “She pitches us different ideas on how to stylistically evoke different feelings and change the mood a little bit of ‘Below Deck’ without removing what really works.”

Moving through the rest of the season, and potentially through seasons to come, Olender is aiming to bring a cutthroat management style while also bringing affection for his stews, all with his signature British humor.

On Bravo’s side, there are changes in the works for the other “Below Deck” spinoffs — including “Sailing Yacht,” “Mediterranean” and “Down Under” — which collectively, have 26 seasons. Specifically, Samton said that “Down Under” is currently filming and that even though fans should be ready to see new things, the show will stay true to its original concept.

“These are real yachties doing a real job so you have to stay within those confines because the audience isn’t going to want anything that is too produced or fake,” Samton said. “So we have to find ways to reinvent while staying true to the original concept of the show.”

And as Olender said: “I’m sure that every year if I were to work with this franchise again, that I’ll be thrown a collection of total chaotic and disastrous stews — that’s what makes it watchable.”
