The World's Most Expensive Charter Yachts

Money can't buy everything. No matter how much you have, most of the yachts on the Power & Motoryacht 100 are for private use. But don't despair. If you must have a yacht holiday, there are plenty of candidates available. The following yachts do charter, and we ranked them from most to least expensive during high season. In cases where charter brokers quote rates in euros, we’ve listed that currency first, followed by the equivalent dollar figure based on exchange rates at presstime. All rates are per week plus expenses, like fuel and liquor. The Power & Motoryacht 100 ranking is in parentheses.
