On a private yacht share, exquisite Mediterranean coastlines and islands are waiting to be explored. Discover them below.

For the ultimate in yacht share: Mediterranean countries to discover

Think French Riviera elegance, the bays and beaches of the Balearic Islands, Italy’s extravagant history and culture, and Croatia’s stunning, island-filled coastline. All these are within reach when you choose a yacht share in the Mediterranean.

French Riviera chic


The French Riviera, with its timeless elegance and wonderful cuisine has long been a favourite among A-Listers and the super-rich, and it’s easy to see why.

Italy’s incredible islands and coast


Italy’s largest islands have plenty to offer.
