11 of the best luxury yachts for charter for under $50k

1 of 11 1/11

Lady Cope $27,000

When you think of luxury yacht charters, what typically comes to mind is the quarter-million-dollar-a-week megayachts hosting the likes of Oprah, Angelina and other A-listers. Legions of crew, Cristal by the case and Beluga caviar by the gallon.

But there’s another side to crewed charters, less-flashy yachts that offer all the advantages of a private customised vacation and are perfect for getting away with your family or friends. We have come up with an eclectic collection of great yachts under $50,000 a week, from the Mediterranean to New England

Before you whip out your AmEx Centurion card, keep in mind that’s plus-plus. The basic charter rate is plus fuel, plus food and beverages and plus a generous tip to the crew because they treated you like Oprah or Angelina. But those costs are controllable by how far and how fast you go, and whether you want lobster, gold-leaf sushi and Italian truffles at every meal. Like everything on a yacht charter, it’s your call.

1. Lady Cope

Lady Cope is the perfect luxury yacht for couples vacationing together — she comes complete with three queen-size cabins, a choice of dining options and two cosy saloons in which to relax, catch up and maybe even play a board game.

Compact and comfortable, the 24.4 metre yacht was delivered by Lazzara in 2006 and underwent an extensive refit in 2012. She's got plenty of deck space for sun worshippers and a vast collection of water toys, including a brand new towed Everglades tender, for those keen to hit the waves.

Available in the Bahamas and Florida, Lady Cope is managed for charter by Ocean Independence and has a weekly charter rate starting from $27,000.
