Charter Yachts Migrate from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean for 2024 Summer Season

By Katie Scott   7 June 2024

Waving farewell to the paradisiac shores of the Caribbean, luxury charter yachts have already begun their migration across the Atlantic to kick off the bustling Mediterranean summer season. 

Welcoming some of the superyachts that have already completed their transatlantic voyage over the past two weeks, events like the Cannes Film Festival and Monaco Grand Prix officially launched the summer season, as more charters make their crossing to the sunkissed coastlines of the Med.

With the best time for crossings falling between April and early June, the most popular route is the eastward transatlantic crossing, which usually starts in the Virgin Islands or Antigua and heads towards the Azores, off the coast of Portugal.

A welcome port of call along the way with stunning scenes of natural beauty and enticing local culture, the Azores mark a convenient mid-Atlantic pitstop, providing an ideal opportunity to refuel, restock provisions for the remainder of the transition, and perform any necessary maintenance on the yacht rental. 

In addition to the plethora of Mediterranean yacht charters that have already arrived for the summer season, here are some more captivating charter yachts currently on their way across the Atlantic.
