Best yachts to charter this autumn/winter
SuperYachtsMonaco heads into fall with a host of world-class sailing opportunities dotted across the globe
With travel becoming a more tantalisingly real prospect as we head into the last weeks of summer, many jet-setters are gearing up to take to the seas this autumn for a fall break in warmer climes. And few methods of travel are more Covid-secure - or luxurious - than a private yacht.
Offering a controllable private environment, yacht charter is one of the best ways for travellers to enjoy waking up in a new destination each morning amid luxury interiors, while easily being able to remain socially distance from other tourists.
From the best of gastronomy and on-board spas, through to high-speed performance and a vast range of water toys, there is something for each generation to enjoy during their time onboard. Here, Tempus has teamed up with SuperYachtsMonaco to compile a variety of their most exceptional superyachts that will be available for charter this autumn.
