There’s Nothing Like A Luxury Yacht Charter For Your Next Vacation

There’s Nothing Like A Luxury Yacht Charter For Your Next Vacation

By HMY   July 22, 2019

Not all vacations are created equal. A luxury yacht charter vacation will, quite simply, be one of the most amazing experiences of your life.

Imagine cruising the beautiful Mediterranean or picturesque Caribbean on a lavish, private yacht, with a crew dedicated to serving your every need and desire, doing what you please, when you please.

The HMY Charter Vacations Division lives to turn these dreams into reality and operates under the same brand mantra as the award-winning sales division: unyielding focus on personalized service, long-lasting relationships, and a true love of yachting.

Industry veteran Bob Saxon, HMY’s VP of Yacht Management, Crew Placement, And Yacht Charter Division, brings his 40 years of experience in the management and chartering of yachts to each and every charter customer. During this extensive career he’s had an association with more than 3,000 yachts and owners and has conducted thousands of weeks of successful charter vacations around the globe. Bob’s accomplishments have earned him the International Superyacht Society’s Lifetime Achievement Award and a spot in the Charter Yacht Brokers Association (CYBA) Hall of Fame.

Unsure about the kind of yacht to charter, where you want to go, or what amenities you’re seeking? Bob and the HMY charter team will take every measure to ensure you have exactly what you want and that your charter vacation exceeds your expectations.


Chartering a yacht gives you nearly unlimited access to the beauty and splendor this world has to offer, without the stress of upkeep and maintenance. And with HMY by your side, it’s a stress-free process.

Let HMY do the work for you for the ultimate customized, luxury vacation to exotic locations around the world, such as the Mediterranean, Greece, Croatia, the Bahamas, and the Caribbean.

To be able to match customers with everything they need and want, to satiate their every whim and desire, HMY’s charter team routinely attends the major industry charter shows to inspect yachts, meet and evaluate crews, sample cuisine from top chefs, try out the latest toys and gadgets, and stay current on industry trends. This intimate knowledge allows us to provide a very personal touch. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to chartering. 

One of the absolute best parts of chartering is you get to have the experience and then simply walk away from it, letting HMY take care of the vessel while you move on to your next adventure. One of the best parts about chartering with HMY is knowing you will receive first-class, personalized service every step of the way, and you’re working with a dedicated team of industry veterans who truly value your relationship.


With more than 1,000 yachts available in the worldwide charter fleet, HMY can offer charter customers a massive range of yacht styles and customization options. Because each vessel is full of personalized characteristics and unique designs, and equipped to satisfy varying levels of luxury, entertainment, and experiences, rest assured that there is a yacht to fit your travel style, needs, and desires.

HMY Charter Vacations Division tends to focus on fully-crewed boats over 80 feet and up, but with access to every yacht available for charter worldwide, customers can access superyachts up to and over 200 feet. 

While there is no shortage of exceptional, extravagant, and mind-blowing yachts for charter customers to choose from, here are a few of our favorite featured charter boats currently available through HMY’s charter division.

Anywhere you want to. Follow the sun and find yourself exploring beautiful, exotic, and historic locales around the world, including the Western Mediterranean, the Caribbean, or New England, each offering a distinctly different experience.

In addition, HMY can plan your exclusive trip to locations such as South Florida and Cuba, the Bahamas, Southeast Alaska, Eastern Adriatic, Greece, Australia and the Whitsundays, Southeast Asia, South Pacific, and the Indian Ocean.


Choosing the best boat for your charter adventure is obviously a key aspect of ensuring maximum comfort and enjoyment, but choosing what’s on the boat—wave runners, kayaks, fully loaded tenders, inflatable water slides, spa rooms, saunas, private media rooms, etc.—is also crucial to ensure your ideal charter experience.

What’s available depends on what’s on the boat and what the boat could possibly hold, and this is where the HMY charter team helps find customers their perfect match. Want to play with the latest personal submarine, or finally give kiteboarding a try? Want a 30’ Scout fully loaded for sport fishing? Customers can make requests and, depending on the yacht’s load capabilities, HMY will make every attempt to fulfill them.

This personalized service also applies to the culinary aspirations of the customer. No matter the styles of food you seek to indulge in to complement your travel destinations, Bob and team will tap into their vast network of renowned chefs and find the perfect crew match to ensure your yacht is its own five-star restaurant.
