Europe’s jetset capital
Sitting like a sparkling jewel on the French Riviera, Monaco’s allure stems from a blend of exclusive luxury, spectacular surroundings and timeless elegance. It has long been a playground for the world’s elite where world-class restaurants and chandelier emblazoned palace hotels line the winding streets in unabashed glamour and dazzling charisma.
Nestled beneath the Maritime Alps and lapped by the Mediterranean Sea, what this tiny principality lacks in size, it certainly makes up for in atmosphere. The harbour acts as a natural focus, where magnificent superyachts gather in a mesmerising display of opulence.

Watching the blur of Formula One cars roaring around the streets from the comfort of your yacht with a glass of chilled champagne in hand is truly unbeatable. The sense of escapism here creates a perfect summer yacht charter destination where you can really experience and appreciate the high-life.

Enjoy breakfast from the top deck of a yacht, the best place to see the warmth of the Medeteranean morning burst into action.
Ruled by the Grimaldi dynasty, its manicured streets are presided over by palaces, lush fountained parks and picturesque buildings. By day you can wander down the charming streets of the fortified Old Town before spending an afternoon strolling around the beautiful Jardin Exotique. Sleek, marble-floored shopping areas brimming with designer boutiques typify the regions beautiful and stylish reputation, with a range of Michelin star restaurants providing a luxurious choice for lunch.
As the sun goes down, the energy intensifies as chic bars and sleek restaurants fill with people embarking on a night of glamour-filled revelry. Monaco is a thrilling charter destination that embraces its decadence and shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.
