Embark on an Unforgettable Yachting Adventure

At ServiceAzur, our expert team is dedicated to crafting your perfect holiday on the high seas. From the moment you select a yacht on the glittering Côte d'Azur to the instant you disembark, we're with you every step of the way. Our fleet ranges from timeless classics to the latest in speedboat luxury, ensuring a vessel for every taste and occasion.

Before Setting Sail: Key Considerations

  • Yacht Type: Are you drawn to the elegance of a sailing yacht or the power of a motor yacht?
  • Guest Capacity: How many will join your sea-bound journey? This determines the number of cabins and, consequently, the yacht's size.
  • Voyage Plan: Map out your dream itinerary.
  • Budget: Set your spending limits for the voyage.
  • Timing and Locale: The Mediterranean's prime season spans from May to October, a perfect fusion of favorable weather and cultural vibrancy, aligning with events like the Cannes Film Festival or Monaco F1 Grand Prix.

Selecting Your Perfect Yacht

  • Motor Yachts: For those seeking speed and luxury, these vessels are the epitome of maritime sophistication. Glide across the waters at speeds up to 40 knots, basking in the comfort of a floating palace. Equipped with cutting-edge navigation, these yachts promise freedom and adventure, albeit with a bit more engine hum and fuel consumption.
  • Sailing Yachts: For the romantics and dreamers, sailing yachts offer a symphony of sails against the sea. Embrace the elements as your allies and enjoy a quieter, more eco-friendly journey.
  • Sailing-Motor Yachts: The best of both worlds, combining the grace of sailing with the assurance of a motor yacht.
  • Mega-Yachts and Super-Yachts: For those who seek unparalleled opulence and exclusivity.

Onboard Amenities and Luxuries

Imagine your days filled with jet skiing, wakeboarding, diving, and more, with a treasure trove of marine toys at your fingertips. Onboard, indulge in high-quality audiovisual systems, satellite phones, email access, and luxurious cabins equipped with minibars. The pinnacle of luxury awaits on our mega-yachts, complete with swimming pools, Jacuzzis, fitness centers, and even helicopter landing pads.

Understanding Yacht Charter Costs

Our typical MYBA contract includes the yacht rental, insurance, and crew salaries. We strive to offer yachts with commercial status, minimizing additional tax burdens. Note that personal insurance for passengers is not covered in the contract.

Managing Additional Expenses

The APA (Advanced Provisioning Allowance), approximately 30% of the charter price, is your budget for all extra costs - fuel, on-board entertainment, meals and drinks, port taxes, telecommunications, and special equipment rentals. Any unused funds are returned, while additional expenses are settled locally.

Personalizing Your Experience

Upon signing your yacht rental contract, a detailed questionnaire allows you to customize every aspect of your voyage - from gourmet food preferences to specific entertainment requests. We consider every detail, ensuring your journey is as unique as you are.

Reserving Your Ideal Yacht

To secure the best match, we recommend booking several weeks in advance. Can't find your ideal yacht on our website? Send us an email at with your requirements, and we'll tailor options just for you. Once you've chosen, a 50% deposit secures your booking, with the remainder and APA due one month before setting sail. For last-minute plans, full payment is required upon contract signing.
