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.

Azimut 50 Flybridge Syndicate Information
There is a phrase in the Azimut 50 brochure that reads “Out to sea, at the center of attention.
Marketing speak aside, this gorgeous yacht definitely gets more than a cursory glance wherever it goes!
The design scheme is an eye-pleasing blend of gently flowing lines, accented by shark fin windows that have become a hallmark of Azimut yachts.
The flybridge seating moves from stern to bow along the starboard side and eventually culminates in a large circular sunpad near the helm. A removable table runs that entire length.
There’s a doublewide bench seat at the helm — and immediately behind it is a molded fiberglass console that holds a wet bar. The stern has space for an additional sunpad.
