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.
