The best luxury charter yachts for under €50k

Chartering isn't just about the megayachts costing millions a week. Yachts that fall under €50k offer all the enjoyment of a private and highly-bespoke vacation for those keeping to a tighter budget. 

Helios

Having recently been refitted in 2019, Helios is one of the few American made, express style yachts over 27 metres currently avaliable for charter. Capable of accommodating eight guests across four cabins, Helios is a Florida pedigree, having been built by Lazzara in 2012 and an ideal option for those looking to cruise Florida and the Bahamas, only drawing a 1.5 metre draft.

Inside, her interiors are contemporary and bright with polished wooden accents and white sofas throughout. Upon boarding, take her midship stairs down to the open plan dining area to find a wet bar. Guests staying in the master stateroom, which features a king bed, a large walk-in closet and Jacuzzi bath will also have their own folding balcony, where they can sit and take in the Florida coastline cruising past.

Helios is available for charter with Denison Yachting from $42,000 per week

Levante

If you’re after maximum space on board, then a catamaran may be the way to go, specifically Levante, which boasts a large square saloon with accommodation for eight guests across four cabins. Her interiors are contemporary, bright and minimalist and she boasts a sprawling aft deck and brimming toy box.

Designed and built by Sunreef, Levante is a great pick for families after smooth sailing in either the South Pacific or Southeast Asia and perhaps one for keen scuba divers, as you’ll find all the gear you need to explore the depths.

Levante is available for charter with Edmiston from €50,000 per week.

Nisi

At 25 metres long, Nisi, may sit at the smaller side of the superyacht spectrum, but thanks to her full beam owner’s suite, light-filled saloon and jam-packed toy box, her amenities can rival that of a much larger vessel. Accommodating up to six guests overnight across three cabins– or 15 guests for day charters – Nisi is the perfect way to explore the famous beaches of Australia’s Whitsunday Island's or perhaps cruise the Great Barrier Reef, while getting the full superyacht experience with three crewmembers on board.

Available on a daily or weekly rate, guests looking to spend their time frolicking in the water will have their pick of paddle boards, Fliteboards, kayaks and an underwater drone in the recently updated toy box. But for those after a more serine time on board, Nisi boasts aft sunpads, a wet bar and a private chef on hand to cook up a storm.

Nisi is available for charter with Yachtsmen International at $8,000AUS per day (approx. €5,400)

Seas to See

Seas to See is the perfect option for families with children in tow. The VIP cabin has a partition that can be fully closed off from the main cabin and converts the seating area to Pullman bunks to create a 'mini cabin'. An enclosed cockpit meanwhile keeps little ones from wandering too close to the edge of the swim platform. The 28 metre yacht for charter carries a Great Tow tender for fishing excursions away from the boat, or guests can take advantage of the cockpit for a spot of trolling while underway. Cruising the Caribbean year-round, her interior is finished with tropical printed cushions.

Seas to See is available for charter with Worth Avenue Yachts from $36,000 per week.
