Mediterranean Yacht Charter: Acico Nassima

Fraser just announced that the 161-foot Acico Nassima has dropped her weekly base rate from €220,000 to €199,000 (the equivalent of about $256,600 to $232,000) for remaining yacht charter dates this summer in the West Mediterranean. Nassima has a main-deck master stateroom with a private terrace—perfect for watching the sun set with a glass of champagne off the coast of St. Tropez.

Mediterranean Yacht Charter: Feadship Highlander

Edmiston is offering the 162-foot Feadship Highlander at a 20-percent discount for any Mediterranean yacht charter bookings of at least seven days. Bonus: The owner is offering to pick up any delivery fees between the South of France and Naples, Italy, so charter clients can choose itineraries pretty much anywhere they want along the Riviera.

Australia Yacht Charter: Azimut Lady Pamela

Northrop & Johnson says the 100-foot Azimut Lady Pamela is giving seven days of yacht charter for the price of five in Australia’s Whitsunday Islands. The yacht has a top-deck hot tub and a fold-down transom that’s ideal for swimming, snorkeling and fishing—great activities in the warm-water destination.

Bahamas Yacht Charter: Northcoast Sea Dreams

Worldwide Boat is promoting the 132-foot Northcoast Sea Dreams at a reduced weekly base rate of $79,500 (down from $85,000) in the Bahamas. Even better: If the charter itinerary runs round-trip from Nassau, then the owner is willing to waive all delivery fees. Sea Dreams recently got a new owner who did a refit of her interior and other guest spaces.

New England Yacht Charter: Ferri Cantieri Jupiter

Nicholson Yachts says the 100-foot Ferri Cantieri Jupiter is dropping her weekly base rate from $35,000 to $25,000 for the rest of the summer in New England. She accommodates eight guests in four staterooms and has an unusual setup in the master: two double beds instead of a king, so everybody can sleep comfortably on the hook.

Mediterranean Yacht Charter: Perini Navi State of Grace

Y.CO is marketing the 131-foot Perini Navi State of Grace for the rest of this summer in the Mediterranean with a free bonus day of yacht charter. Book seven days on board and receive eight.
