Fractional Yacht Ownership in the Western Med
The Western Mediterranean is famed for its glamorous ports where the nightlife often surpasses the rock-star styled fun filled days at anchor.
This region is very much about active lifestyle yachting, where coming back into port at night to enjoy some land based gastronomic delights and a cool vibe in the bars and clubs, is very much the norm for yacht owners.
Fractional yacht owners in the western Med tend to use their yachts more as a floating holiday home than a passage-maker. Fractional ownership therefore works particularly well in these waters as berthing costs tend to be among the highest in the world, and an idle yacht can become restrictively expensive. Through shared ownership, the mooring is in constant use, balancing-out the value proposition.
Yachts in these waters tend to fall into two primary categories:
- Sleek flybridge yachts designed to offer high occupancy levels of accommodation coupled with ample living space. Sub 60ft yachts often boasting 3 spacious cabins, and over 60ft yachts offering 4 cabins or more. These make ideal holiday-home type fractional yachts, as they are perfectly configured to blend the mix of style and comfort desired.
- Rapid and purposeful looking open yachts to offer extensive outdoor entertaining areas, very much with day boating in mind. These yachts are ideally suited to fractional ownership when combined with a land based holiday home and often bought by villa owners who would like some time at sea but wish to avoid the costs and hassle of outright yacht ownership.

This fabulous yacht is a perfect blend of classic and contemporary yacht design. The timeless and traditional style of Italy’s world-renowned Benetti shipyard has been coupled with the fresh and uncluttered interiors from Sarah King Designs in England, to make this vessel unique in its class. She was nominated in the prestigious World Super Yacht Awards 2009.
Being virtually tri-deck she has plenty of internal and deck space to give all 9 potential guests ample space for privacy coupled with the ability to accommodate varying Al Fresco soirees on the different decks.
This syndicate have been sharing yachts for over 10 years and with that extensive experience were extremely selective in their choice of yacht as they upgraded.
The criteria they set for this yacht required a spacious 3 en-suite cabin layout, without any bunks, extensive social space, a hydraulic platform with a Williams Tender, simultaneously fitting an 18m mooring in Puerto Portals.
A very experienced syndicate who upgraded to this yacht in 2015, running a fabulously equipped yacht with a very social layout and 4 spacious cabins, coupled with the more desirable galley up configuration. This yacht has been fully refurbished in 2017/8 as shows like new.
This syndicate has a great mix of international owners with a very differing preference spread of usage weeks making it run particularly smoothly.
This yacht is located on one of the most desirable moorings in Puerto Portals.
A new yacht for 2016 for a very well established syndicate who chose to upgrade to a 5 cabin yacht.
This sumptuous yacht has a contemporary feel and comes with all the latest features such as a hydraulic platform with a Williams 325 tender, water-maker, telescopic hydraulic bimini and hand held remote control docking.
A fantastic opportunity to co-own an award winning highly specified Predator 57 with fin stabilisers based in a prime berth in Mahon. There has been no expense spared when equipping this Sunseeker, which makes her a unique and rare find!
A timeless classic built by one of the most experienced Italian yards, Falcon Yachts. She was fully refitted in 2019 modernising all the key features whist retaining her distinctive European exterior lines while her interior showcases the most impressive use of space and offer accommodation for 10.
This yacht can only be described as new because of its recent refit. Fitted out to an extremely high standard with full stabilisation, double generators, water maker and new high end furnishings, technology and equipment she truly wants for nothing.
Boston Whalers are a true example of “you get what you pay for”. There are many good boats out there for less money but a Whaler is well, a Whaler! Add the fact that you only have to pay a quarter of its acquisition and running costs to explore all that Menorca offers and it truly is a win/win situation.
