Italian Dreaming: Charter a super-yacht for the ultimate luxury holiday

The sparkling waters of the Mediterranean are the destination of choice for those seeking an ultra-luxury holiday with a difference. Synonymous with status and luxury, Essteele has narrowed down the list of the swankiest super-yachts for charter perfect for cruising up and down the Italian coast.


Considered a modern classic, Nero is one of the world’s largest luxury motor yachts, her design inspired by the famous 'Corsair' series of superyachts owned in the early part of the last century by financier JP Morgan. Whilst sporting a vintage vibe, Nero comes equipped with a dizzying, up-to-the-minute array of toys and tenders including two Seabobs, five jet skis as well as a nine-metre custom cabin cruiser, eight-metre custom tender and a five metre RIB tender. Set aside at least ‚Ǩ475,000 per week for the privilege of hiring this sleek-lined superyacht.


This envy-inducing 182ft superyacht caters for up to 12 guests in 6 luxurious staterooms that all come complete with their marble bathrooms. The bridge deck features an upper deck salon with a full entertainment system, game table, piano, and an alfresco cinema, no less.

A week’s charter through Fraser Yachts in the Mediterranean this summer will set you back ‚Ǩ294,000 per week.


Sailing the summer seas is infinitely more interesting when you have an original Warhol in the main study, a David Lachapelle pop-art image in the elevator foyer and quirky sketches by Jean-Michel Basquiat gracing this gleaming vessel's walls. With no expense spared on the yacht's recent refit, further special touches include an expansive sun deck, a climate-controlled gym and an elevator that accesses all guest levels, including the sun deck.

Costs from €238,000 per week.
