A-List Superyachts that are still available for charter this summer

Choices include charter newcomers like 414-foot “Octopus” and just-launched 279-foot “Victorious.” The Med is this year’s playground of choice.

Summer yacht charters have had consecutive rocky seasons. First, there was the summer of Covid in 2020, when most charters in the Med were called off because of travel restrictions. The following summer became a makeup season when many of 2020’s cancellations were rescheduled. This summer, the market is righting itself, with the Med returning as the most popular cruising destination. The good news for the procrastinators is the large number of A-list superyachts still available for charter. The itineraries range from this weekend’s Monte Carlo Grand Prix (better hurry if you want a waterside seat) to weeks-long adventures in remote areas like Turkey, Greece and Norway.

‘Octopus’ (414 Feet)

Commissioned by the late Paul Allen, Microsoft co-founder,  the 414-foot Octopus is an iconic explorer that can bring you to the ends of the Earth this summer. The ice-classed boat is renowned for its 65-foot submarine, glass-bottomed aquarium, huge swimming pool, two helipads and its central role in oceanographic research. Live LED ceilings, an onboard hospital and seven tenders catapult Octopus to world-class status. Welcoming 12 guests in 13 cabins, including a master suite with private elevator and observation deck and two VIP apartments, Octopus is available to charter for the first time since its delivery. Fresh from a 2021 refit, the explorer embarked on a two-year round-the-world tour in January 2022 and is the perfect fit for those looking for an adventure less ordinary this summer. Starting at $2.2 million per week via Camper & Nicholsons

Calling all lovers of the great outdoors. The 247-foot Kenshō was built to celebrate the sea wherever you are on board.

Or perhaps it’ll be the sun deck with its glass windbreak doors, skylight and glass-fronted Jacuzzi. The marble bathtub and media lounge in the master suite are both alluring for the main guests, though when exploring coves, the 29.5-foot tender with a beach ladder on the foredeck will please everyone. From Y.CO, starting at about $886,000 per week
