M/Y Just Enough: Plenty for an Unforgettable Charter

Thu, 08/15/2019 - 14:00
M/Y Just Enough: Plenty for an Unforgettable Charter Unassuming yet powerful, M/Y Just Enough is something of a misnomer - she is plenty for an unforgettable luxury charter. The 2012-built 42.67m yacht is perfect for an exclusive break with a select few of your family and friends.

Just Enough impresses at every turn. Beautiful Ares Marine exteriors are in immaculate condition thanks to a 2019 refit, as are interiors that yield timeless styling and beautiful furnishings to create an atmosphere that is comfortable and luxurious in equal measure.

Her layout sleeps 11 guests across 5 rooms, of which the master suite is the jewel in the crown, offering a king size bed, desk/vanity area and marble accented ensuite with corner shaped jacuzzi. The rest of the accommodation comprises 2 double cabins, 2 double/twin cabins and 2 pullman beds.

A full beam salon features a comfortable lounge and formal dining, with a day head also accessible from this level. Meanwhile, a separate area for entertaining and relaxing is located on the bridge deck - here guests find a large sofa, a full bar and a game table. Moving aft to the exterior, there is an alternate al fresco dining area.

Just Enough’s size also makes her the perfect yacht for charters who want plenty of access to the sea. The sun deck is a great escape by day or night - here, a large jacuzzi, marble-topped bar and several chaise longue set the mood.

The 42.67m is also a yacht of impressive performance. Built with an aluminium hull and superstructure, she reaches a cruising speed of 14 knots and a maximum speed of 18 knots with a range of 3,500nm.

With the summer season drawing to a close, now is the perfect time to be dreaming of a sumptuous winter charter. Just Enough, available with Bluewater, strikes the perfect balance between comfort and luxury as she cruises the idyllic grounds of the St. Barths, St. Martin and the BVI.

76.6m YERSIN Explorer Enters Charter Market

Wed, 08/07/2019 - 16:00
76.6m YERSIN Explorer Enters Charter Market A new giant has taken to the charter market as SuperYachtsMonaco announces its appointment as worldwide charter Central Agent for 76.6m Yersin. Borrowing her name from the legendary 19th century explorer and physician, Yersin certainly does this justice as an innovative, daring yet luxurious superyacht.

Delivered in 2015 by French shipyard Piriou with exterior design by Pierre Jacques Kubis, Yersin is built as a powerful and rugged explorer yacht. She is capable of reaching the most remote spots on the globe, packed with an impressive arsenal of discovery equipment all while simultaneously offering a sublimely luxurious experience for her guests. She now joins the rapidly growing SuperYachtsMonaco charter fleet that includes Mondomarine’s 60m Sarastar and Oceanco’s 86m Sailing Yacht Aquijo.

Commenting on the incorporation of Yersin, SuperYachtsMonaco Director Alex Banning said “we are delighted to have such a unique yacht in our fleet. Being new to the charter market, we would tell all charter clients that if you have the pleasure of chartering Yersin then expect a well-balanced experience of play, comfort, style and exploring, no matter where you choose to go.”

For the ultimate adrenaline-filled adventure, Yersin comes equipped with two 7.5m Zodiac Hurricanes and a quad fitted with caterpillar tracks to take to all terrain. Whether on land or sea, Yersin caters for action with amenities including jet skis, bicycles and even an on-board professional diving facility. The 76.6 metre explorer is built for long-distance missions, and her main deck accommodates space for specialist equipment including a submarine and seaplane.

For those among her 12 guests who would prefer a more peaceful and indulgent escape, Yersin is designed to have something for everyone, giving her great liveability. Around the Giga yacht, you will find everything from a Hammam spa, hairdresser and a 12 seater private cinema. 24 crew members are on hand to attend to every need of the guests, while each of the 8 guest cabins comes with a holistic entertainment system and en suite facilities. The open and modern layout of Yersin allows her plenty of social spaces, and for evening entertainment guests can move from the two formal dining rooms into the two on-board cocktail bars.

 “The beauty of Yersin,” Mr Banning told Superyachts.com, “is her versatility of superyacht comfort with commercial ship durability. She can provide superyacht, luxury or no-frills simplicity, with the most adventurous, remote and mind-blowing itineraries to explore that’s unique to the charter market.”

 Importantly for a market that is increasingly eco-conscious, Yersin is able to provide all of these things in an environmentally-friendly manner. “Above all she can travel from destination to destination with minimal impact on the environment,” says Banning, and this was recognised when Yersin was awarded with CLEANSHIP class notations, owing to the ultramodern green technology that has been installed throughout the vessel.

In Yersin, SuperYachtsMonaco have gained an exciting and distinctive addition to their charter fleet that is built to “travel, explore and educate”.

A Captain's Perspective: Cruising the Fjords with Steel

Thu, 07/18/2019 - 11:00
A Captain's Perspective: Cruising the Fjords with Steel In the latest trend to sweep the industry, yachts are increasingly looking to cruise to areas where no yacht has cruised before. One such vessel satiating the appetites of adventurous guests is Steel, the 54.8m Pendennis for charter with Hill Robinson. We speak to someone at the very heart of the action, Captain Justin of Steel.

“MY Steel has A1 Ice class and a massive fuel range of 6000nm, so long expeditions of the amazing fjords and high latitude scenery is easily achieved,” begins Captain Justin. Steel’s impressive expedition capabilities means that she is perfectly at home chartering unconventional destinations such as Scandinavia. These areas are some of the most uniquely beautiful in the world, offering experiences quite distinct from the established idylls of the Caribbean and Mediterranean. “The scenery is amazing and the midnight sun is incomparable,” says Captain Justin, “On our last cruise we saw whales and dolphins. Norway is becoming more popular, but as soon as you leave the port you are on your own with the fjord.”

These alluring destinations are gaining the recognition that they are due, as more and more superyacht owners and charters catch wind of this stunning corner of the globe. Increasingly, therefore, shipyards are met with requests to create yachts with the technical capabilities to venture into the unknown. “I do think that this is the direction that the industry is moving in, and that people increasingly looking to travel to less conventional destinations,” says Justin, “But it will always be more of a niche market as the water is not quite as warm. However, the scenery more than makes up for it.”

Steel also makes no compromises when it comes to balancing her explorer status with the luxury onboard experience. “She does this incredibly well,” says Justin, “We have a dedicated interior team of 5 and sufficient deck crew for all guest activities, and each anchor chain is over 250m long so the ship will always be safely anchored wherever she may be.” The 58.4m also refuses to cut corners when it comes to leisure and entertainment facilities, offering a full garage of water sports equipment, a heated 6m swimming pool and a large 10m rib for touring the spectacular fjords.

This 2009-launched ice-class yacht is all the proof you need that hardy explorers can coexist as custom-tailored luxury designs. Place this in amongst the sublime fjords of Scandinavia, and you have an unforgettable charter experience.

Catching Up With Lili: 55m Amels Charter Giant

Thu, 07/04/2019 - 10:00
Catching Up With Lili: 55m Amels Charter Giant A few months ago we spoke with Imperial Yachts to learn a little more about Lili, the gorgeous Amels 180 who features striking exterior design by the esteemed Tim Heywood, on her exploration adventure around the world. Five months later, we caught up with Lili’s captain Andrew Carter for all the details of her action-packed world tour, to find out an answer to the question, ‘Where in the world is Lili now?’

One undeniable prevailing trend in yachting in recent years has been the increase in demand to charter in increasingly remote and adventurous locations. In a dynamic industry that always seeks to evolve and innovate the newest technology, modes and methods, the bar for superyachts to reach is climbing ever higher. Enter Lili, the 55m Amels superyacht, who embarked last December on what can only be described as the charter adventure of a lifetime. 

Equipped with an abundance of features - from an on-board cinema to an expert spa professional - to ensure her guests enjoy the height of luxury during their stay, Lili has been exploring the far-flung corners of the world’s oceans since her foray into the Maldives in the middle of last December. 

At the time of writing, Lili is basking in the Mediterranean sun in northern Sardinia, having stopped off in the Middle East en route to the Indian Ocean. As Captain Carter told us, “Lili has been chartering in the South West corner of Turkey and also the Italian Riviera (Capri, Amalfi, etc…) and expects a very busy and successful summer charter season!” 

In terms of what is next for Imperial’s crown charter jewel, she expects to stop off at the Balearics in early August for mid summer season during her short stay in the Mediterranean. September will see a Mediterranean month, preceding a shipyard stop in November - October months, before embarking out to the Caribbean in December. 

Captain Carter has confirmed that the requests for charter have been coming in thick and fast - in shedding some light on Lili’s commercial success, he adds, “The success is based on the quality of our crew and the experience offered on board… we look forward to discovering more!”

Carter also reports that the team is not only “on time on the Worldwide Tour Plan” but also perhaps unsurprisingly have “considerably extended [their] possibilities, so charter guests can expect the best from the vessel and the crew”. 

Such is testament to Lili’s unfettered success, and we at Superyachts.com can confirm that we will certainly be keeping a close eye on this dream vessel’s journey as she sails onward.

Lili is currently available for charter with Imperial Yachts.

SuperYachtsMonaco's Latest Charter Addition

Wed, 06/26/2019 - 17:00
SuperYachtsMonaco's Latest Charter Addition The SuperYachtsMonaco charter fleet just got a bit bigger… the brokerage today announced their new Central Agency for Heesen 46m Naseem. The third vessel to come out of Heesen’s successful 4700 series in 2008, this classic motor yacht exemplifies the unrivalled pedigree of Dutch yachting.

The charter experience offered by Naseem is, in a word, luxurious. She is an elegant yacht, achieving perfect synthesis between a modern interior and tri-deck outdoor living. Her layout accommodates 12 guests across 5 staterooms, the crowning glory of which is a stylish full-beam master suite.

Her art-deco-inspired spaces are beautifully styled by Bannenberg & Rowell, and always exhibit a fresh, modern twist. This is particularly apparent in the main living areas, which include an open-plan salon and dining room on the main deck and a chic sky lounge with a cocktail bar and lounge area on the upper deck.

As for her exterior, the classic lines and a graceful profile of this 46m was curated by Omega Architects. Combining functionality and simplicity, Naseem’s on-deck leisure spaces entail a convertible tender garage (carrying a 7m Pascoe 260hp Yanmar tender and a Novaraina rescue boat) which doubles as a beach club, plus an idyllic sundeck with a raised spa pool and sunpads. 

This Heesen build is also a yacht of impeccable performance. Built from aluminium with a steel hull, she cruises at 16 knots and features a cutting edge stabilization system that leaves guests barely aware of the yacht’s motion whilst cruising.

Naseem is a failsafe option for an unforgettable charter. She is a classic yacht from a world-renowned shipyard with a range of leisure and entertainment facilities that mean there is never a dull moment on board. If a summer cruising in the west Mediterranean sounds like heaven, do not hesitate to contact SuperYachtsMonaco.

S/Y Palmira: Where Sailing Meets Splendour

Wed, 06/12/2019 - 12:00
S/Y Palmira: Where Sailing Meets Splendour A Palmira charter with Y.CO represents yachting as it should be: in the open air and close to the ocean. This regatta champion and global cruiser unites sailing charm, oceangoing thrill and a level of luxury that is the cherry on top of a dream charter.

A Fitzroy Yachts build, 45m Palmira is a household name in the sailing world, with a formidable history as a regatta contestant and plenty of podium finishes in her time. She also has the proud legacy of being the superyacht of choice for some of the biggest names in sailing, including British Olympic gold medalist Shirley Robertson and New Zealand sailing superstar Cameron Appleton.

With an exterior by Dubois Naval Architects that won the 2010 Showboats Design Awards for ‘Best Exterior Design & Styling in the Sailing Yacht’ category, Palmira offers uncluttered deck areas with fixed sun pads aft, a spacious forward deck area and alfresco cockpit-dining. Options for relaxing and entertaining abound, whilst leaving plenty of areas for the crew to operate without infringing on guest comfort.

Her inner recesses reveal luxurious trimmings by Adam Lay Design to rival any large motor yacht. A split-level main salon, 4 spacious cabins and uncluttered deck are attired with an impeccable taste level, featuring walnut furniture, lime oak flooring, light hemp wall paneling, dark Wenge wood tables, a white onyx bar and light reflecting sofas by Giorgetti Spa.

A spacious main salon is flooded with natural light from skylights and wrap around windows to maintain the theme of bringing the outdoors in - an outdoors that features an alfresco cockpit dining with optional awning, a spacious main deck with fixed sun pads aft and a fold-down swim platform connects guests to the water, tenders and toys.

Palmira offers guests the adventure of cruising the ocean onboard a regatta-topping vessel capable of cruising from Panama to Tahti, with all the trimmings of an ultraluxe superyacht. She is a true bridge between the thrill of sailing and the opulence of motoring.

Palmira is available for charter in the Med this summer. Contact Y.CO for more information

Charter Focus: Sophisticated Solo

Wed, 06/05/2019 - 11:00
Charter Focus: Sophisticated Solo It’s a quiet day in Barcelona when we take the tour of M/Y Solo. Marina Port Vell is recovering from the MYBA Show; as are the Captains and crew of the world’s most impressive charter yachts which line the docks. We embark, invited into the spaces of Tankoa’s latest delivery: spaces that are designed to impress.

But before we come to the design symposium that is Solo’s interiors, we get lost on the decks. While 72m is considerably large for a charter vessel, the exterior space is still surprisingly large. Made even more special by curved glass free from view-disrupting partitions, the sundeck offers us 360 degree views of Barcelona’s skyline. A few steps down and the skylounge aft is perfect for a quick dip in the pool or late night party; the preferred use, but this area also transforms into a touch-and-go helipad.

For dinner, head to the upper deck-aft dining table and to unwind wander down to the beach club; one of the most inviting we’ve seen with an XXL sized toy-box to match, not to mention the bar, sauna, gym and fold-out balconies. This is definitely the place to be on a charter…

But sadly we’re not charter guests; so eventually we’re persuaded inside where we had the pleasure of speaking to Tankoa expert and Build Captain, Renzo Chelazzi. “It’s the second yacht that we have launched for the same owner,” he tells, explaining why the yacht is so successfully suited to serving charter. “It has been very helpful for us at Tankoa during construction to improve what has been done on the first yacht and modify according to what the charter requests were on the previous yacht.”

And indeed, Solo’s meticulous attention to detail is clear. Designed by Francesco Pazkowski in collaboration with Margarita Casprini, her interior social spaces and cabins have been noticeably crafted as an art collection is curated; every piece, each texture, carefully considered. Captain Renzo describes, “You can find marble, oak in different colours, black oak for the floor, gray oak for the walls. Calacatta marble, ebony, macassar, cappuccino stone from Rajasthan which mixed all together makes the interior be so amazing.”  A mix that makes Solo seriously sophisticated.

Yet the piece-de-resistance on Solo has to be the Master Cabin; though ‘cabin’ isn’t really a satisfactory way to describe this space. A choice of private elevator or staircase leads guests directly from the main deck into this oasis of calm and cool. A king-size bed acts as an anchorage for endless views of the horizon which is bettered only by that from the owner’s own private deck and jacuzzi forward.

With room for up to 12 guests served by expert crew, Solo is available for charter with Northrop and Johnson. You can find out more about the experience on board in full by watching the video above.

Headlining The Superyacht Show: The 5 Biggest Yachts

Wed, 05/08/2019 - 10:00
Headlining The Superyacht Show: The 5 Biggest Yachts As anyone who makes it their business to stay attuned with the world of luxury yachting will be well aware, last year’s first annual Superyacht Show in Barcelona was a booming success. That being said, as this 8th May marks the second inauguration of the event, this year’s line-up looks set to top the last - featuring jaw-dropping builds from some of the most reputable shipyards in the business. Our team take a closer look at the 5 biggest yachts on show, and which features in particular we love about them…

1. Maltese Falcon
At a proud 88 metres, Maltese Falcon is the flagship entrant of the year from Perini Navi. This 2006 build, who is available for charter through IYC, displays all the classic features of the finest Italian craftsmanship. With a striking triple-mast sail system atop black and silver steel body by the British design house Ken Freivogh, Maltese Falcon’s equally impressive interiors have forced us to redefine our conventional notions regarding sailing yachts - making her a truly innovative boat in more ways than one.

2. Secret
Abeking & Rasmussen’s 82.3 metre masterpiece M/Y Secret is the second largest yacht in show this year, and is available for charter with Burgess. A superyacht in every sense of the word, Secret effortlessly stands out from the crowd by virtue of her distinctively streamlined hull, which creates an incredible visual impression as she cuts through the water. We have to applaud this remarkable feat of engineering by the German shipyard.  

3. Eminence
Abeking & Rasmussen’s second entrant, M/Y Eminence, is certain to draw more than a few sets of eyes at the show this year. Although her two-toned 78 metre hull is certainly a sight to behold, it is her sumptuous interiors, designed by the celebrated Reymond Langton, that are most notably impressive about this 2008 German build. Seamlessly blending modern with classic in a whir of creams, taupe and marble, a trip on this megayacht promises to be more reminiscent of a stay in a 5-star hotel than anything else.  

4. Solo
Some of our readers may remember M/Y Solo, the 71 metre Tankoa build, from her debut at the Monaco Yacht Show last year. Aside from her Francesco Paszkowski design and dark stone-hued décor, Solo, who is currently for sale with IYC, is remarkable in more ways than one. This megayacht made ripples throughout the industry after her launch some months ago, and unsurprisingly so, as she was awarded the RINA prize for most ecological yacht of the year. We would therefore like to hail Tankoa for their entering Solo in the show this year - a representative of a dynamic and conscientious shift in the yachting industry that is very much underway.   

5. Lady Christine
68 metre M/Y Lady Christine, a 2010 launch from Dutch ship-building giant Feadship, has earnt her worthy spot in the final of our top 5. Her naval architecture, whose striking, clean lines are a veritable feast for the eyes, is the characteristic work of De Voogt naval architects. But it is Rodney Black Design Studio’s rich interiors who steal the show on-board this megayacht. Plush, warm tones and intricate Art Deco features shed light on the owner’s unique but esteemed taste, giving Lady Christine an air of a still-contemporary throwback to a more stately and sophisticated time.

Although each of the above yachts boasts her own unique character and exceptional features, the show is set to feature far more incredible feats of engineering and innovative showcases of design than we have time to discuss here. For those lucky enough to be at the docks between the 8th and 11th of May, don’t miss out on viewing the full range that this year’s Superyacht Show has to offer.

Flying Fox Enters Imperial Charter Fleet

Tue, 05/07/2019 - 18:00
Flying Fox Enters Imperial Charter Fleet Following a successful maiden trip, Top 100 yacht Flying Fox has passed into the capable hands of Imperial, who will act as her Central Agent for charter. At a staggering 136m, this magnificent vessel is one of the largest currently chartering the high seas.

Built for breaking records, Flying Fox was delivered by Lurssen in March. She is now exclusively available for charter worldwide through Imperial, whose yacht management expertise oversaw the construction process and are now continuing their services in Operational Management.

The 136m’s curvaceous exterior design was imagined by Espen Øino, whose genius is felt everywhere from the round gas fireplaces on Upper and Bridge deck aft to the multiple options for exterior lounges throughout.

Meanwhile, a luxurious interior is the work of Mark Berryman, and accommodates 22 guests across 11 cabins. A warm colour scheme is achieved with bamboo, teak and oak, combined with Travertine and Jerusalem stone and finished with fine leathers. The design is brought together with an immersive touch of green - real trees and plants are featured throughout.

Notable features include a beautiful spiral staircase, a large 2-floor salon and wood fireplace and a vast 22-seat dining table. Flying Fox also boasts a Cinema room with D-box seats and state-of-the-art surrounding sound, as well as an aft deck with outside Cinema screen. And that’s not all - this comprehensive yacht offers innumerable extras such as a Beauty Centre, an Observation Salon and a panoramic exterior salon on the Roof deck - a private paradise on board.

At her heart, however, Flying Fox is a yacht built for lovers of the great outdoors, with her on-deck features stealing the show. A particular highlight is a 12-metre swimming pool, which runs transversely on the Main deck - a technological first for a superyacht of this size.

This outdoors connection is enhanced by a collection of sea activities at guest’s fingertips. Flying Fox possesses an impressive Dive Store area, as well as a large array of water toys (including Sea Doo, jet skis, Seabobs, Zapata flyboard and hoverboard) and 9 tenders in total!

Crewed by 54 professionals with proven credentials, nowhere will you be better taken care of than on a Flying Fox charter. The onboard culinary experience is particularly exquisite, with Michelin-star chefs serving up the finest cuisine daily.

Julia Stewart, Imperial Director, has commented: “There is nothing like Flying Fox on the charter market. This superyacht is unprecedented, ad we look forward to marvelous and unique charter journeys on board for the most demanding of guests.”

Imperial and Flying Fox are reinventing the art of chartering, with the combination of luxury and expertise making for the trip of a lifetime. Cruising plans for this impressive Lurssen are currently available on request.

Cecil Wright Announces Charter CA for Arience

Wed, 05/01/2019 - 13:00
Cecil Wright Announces Charter CA for Arience Cecil Wright are pleased to announced their Central Agency of recently renamed Arience (formerly Excellence V). Delivered in 2012 by Abeking & Rasmussen, this majestic 60.9m was represented by the brokerage in her recent sale and will continue to charter 12 lucky guests to the Western Mediterranean this summer.

Arience is a yacht built for a connoisseur - a true classic, she is the perfect example of best in class Northern European building. She continues to storm the charter market as one of the highest pedigree yachts in her size category.

Her sweeping steel and aluminium exterior lines were architected by industry-renowned designer Reymond Langton, and built to Lloyds class by the German shipyard. Since her delivery, she has been meticulously maintained - a 2017 superstructure repaint, full main engine service and a rebuild of the generators went a long way to ensure her immaculate presentation today.

Reymond Langton’s award-winning team also did a standout job with Arience’s interior. With a huge gross tonnage of 1,632 and generous interior volume, she seamlessly achieves an expansive range of luxury features including a central glass elevator to all five decks encircled by a dramatic staircase, a dedicated cinema and a gym with waterfront views.

The rest of the indoor space comprises of chic, high-end decor such as smooth wood floors, leather walls and crocodile tabletops. The dining area, meanwhile, features a stunning Macassar table, black emperador marble and white onyx countertops.

The yacht accommodates her guests across seven comfortable staterooms, comprising a master suite, VIP suite, three doubles and two twins, all fitted out with entertainment centres, television screen and en-suite bathrooms. Crew, who are dedicated, friendly and know Arience’s cruising areas like the back of their hand, are housed in discreet quarters.

Arience is an ideal vessel for the ‘floating palace’ experience, both due to her size and her pedigree. If a summer spell in the glorious Med aboard this luxury and quality-balancing vessel appeals to you, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Cecil Wright.

Destination Focus: From Peaks to Beach in Croatia

Tue, 04/30/2019 - 16:00
Destination Focus: From Peaks to Beach in Croatia If for you, as with many yachters, the summer months herald the irresistible call of the Mediterranean, why not consider Croatia? Chartering this Adriatic paradise can make summer cruising dreams of emerald waters shadowed by ancient cities a reality. M/Y The Wellesley (with TWW Yachting), Meamina (with Burgess) and Rosehearty (with Perini Navi USA), to name a few, will soon be heading to this mesmerising part of the world.

Croatia’s island-speckled coastline makes it the perfect destination to explore by superyacht. Here, the sea sparkles with jewel-like intensity under the Mediterranean sun, lapping at secluded pockets of beach. The best reside along Makarska Riviera, where you will find miles of sequestered coast lined with fig trees and olive groves.

Rocky seabeds provide astounding underwater visibility, and has made the region famous for astounding ‘in situ’ (on site) museums, including ancient shipwrecks such as Baron Gautsch off the coast of Rovinj, or Taranto near Dubrovnik. Not to be outdone, natural aquatic splendours include Te Vega Sea Lake, which is reachable only by underwater tunnel, and Bisevo Cave near the island of Vis, whose bright blue hue has to be seen to be believed. 

Croatia is the ideal nautical destination, with the discovery of lavender-scented bays and olive grove-studded islets easily accessible by superyacht, not to mention the irresistible allure of soaking in the Adriatic.

Dragging your gaze from the green-tinged ocean, mainland Croatia is a fortress of natural and man-made wonders. The looming Dinaric Mountain Range hugs the majority of the coastline, carving out a landscape of contorted peaks, caverns and canyons from its limestone karst.

Inland, sublime peaks give way to rolling countryside. Vineyards criss-cross Dingač, Postup and Komarna, accompanied by wine cellars offering a plurality of gorgeous vintages from indigenous grape varieties.

And the country’s anthropological wonders are no less impressive. Croatia’s cities are crumbling mazes of ancient architecture that groan with historical ambience. Dubrovnik Old Town’s 16th century walls and the remains of Diocletian’s Palace in Split are particularly extraordinary.

Meanwhile, life on Croatian islands harkens back to a bygone era, with winding roads flanked by grazing livestock and elders playing ‘bocce’. Others exist at an accelerated pace of life, playing host to legendary 24-hour parties. The island of Brač is famed for its white stone topology and sumptuous delicacies of olive oil, sheep cheese and mandarins, whilst the sealocked Hvar is a popular playground for the rich and famous.

Between the beautiful beaches of Dalmatia, the fantastic food of Istria and the cruising idyll of the Adriatic, Croatia is a destination that will stay with you long after the Mediterranean summer ends.
