Why charter?

Your charter, your way with West Nautical 


Peace and serenity in complete privacy, direct access to the world’s most exciting sports events, or an opportunity to celebrate one of life’s milestones in true style, a yacht charter is a fantastic opportunity to relax entirely on your terms.

Unlike a land based holiday, a yacht charter is inherently flexible, where your five-star accommodation is also your transport. An itinerary can be planned in advance, then changed as you wish. The yacht, at your complete disposal, can go where you please. Realising this possibility is the first step to setting your imagination afire with the idea of chartering a luxury yacht.

Whether you have chartered religiously for the past twenty years, or are completely new to yachting; a charter with West Nautical starts with you.

Our service is defined by its knowledge led and truly bespoke approach. Learning what you like, defining your requirements; before making yacht and itinerary recommendations that inspire, fuelling your vision of the perfect unique getaway.

A luxury yacht is a mechanism to unparalleled and exclusive access to the world’s most exciting destinations; lending an exclusive perspective on each landfall. From the town quay of your favourite quaint Italian village, to being trackside at the Monaco Grand Prix, or the raw and thrilling wilderness of an idyllic Caribbean island anchorage; we will take you there in bespoke style with your closest friends and family.

Your charter can be as relaxed or adrenaline filled as you like. Most yachts are equipped with watersports equipment, whilst some have a range of ‘toys’ including inflatable slides and even submarines. For those that just want to relax, many vessels have a trained therapist as part of their regular crew, whilst some larger yachts have full service spa facilities.

All luxury yachts have a qualified Captain and crew, with a highly experienced chef on board, capable of creating a range of food styles to your preference. The stewardess team are silver service trained, ensuring a truly luxurious private dining experience aboard.

As highly experienced brokers, with a thorough grasp of the global charter market, the West Nautical team can suggest the best yachts to suit your itinerary and party. In many cases, we know the crew and Captains personally, meaning we can recommend a yacht with a crew that’s ideally suited.

West Nautical looks forward to planning your dream charter soon.

Whether in search of a secluded anchorage in crystal clear waters, or the exclusive quay of an ancient city away from the tourists, a luxury yacht charter with us lends a unique perspective on the places you visit.


 The possibilities are endless. No matter how you like to relax, the West Nautical team will ensure you are well taken care of on-board your chosen yacht. A yoga lesson on the foredeck, followed by a massage on the aft? A morning snorkel over a coral reef with the family after breakfast? A race around the bay on the jetskis before taking a dive under the yacht? Cocktails as the sun sets on a deserted island, or a midnight dip in the Jacuzzi? We have it covered.

Your charter, your private space

 A private yacht is a sanctuary from the outside world where you will find peace to be yourself along with your friends and family. Discretion is guaranteed. Whether you are chartering to celebrate, party, or just get away from it all; you’ll find the ultimate freedom on board to do as you please, surrounded in peaceful luxury.

Beyond the yacht

Our service extends above and beyond the selection of a yacht. We will work with you in deciding the best itinerary for your charter, ensuring that the Captain arranges any special requests such as additional water sports equipment or confirms space in your desired marina on a particular date. We can facilitate private aviation transfers, excursions ashore, tickets to exclusive events, concierge services and much more.
