Superyacht vs Megayacht Charters Differences

Superyachts are all large enough to have at least two or three full-time crew on board. Charter yachts in this size range usually start with three or four guest staterooms and can have six or more staterooms at the larger end of the size range.

What’s great about the superyacht size category is that it offers a truly interesting mix of options for charter clients. Some of these charter yachts are decked out for snorkeling and diving, while others are set up more for fishing and water sports. Still, others may focus on outdoor dining and sun, while others have more features for onboard entertaining and parties.

Charter clients can truly choose the type of experiences they want to have in this size range, aboard yachts that are tailored for those experiences. Many families, for instance, choose superyachts with features and crews that are specifically set up for kids. Some even have baby gates, child-size life jackets, and water skis for smaller feet.

Megayachts are typically semi-custom or fully custom designs, which means no two are ever completely the same. Owners of megayachts can often specify anything they want in terms of onboard features: indoor or outdoor cinemas, fire pits, infinity pools, tricked-out gymnasiums, DJ booths, dance floors, helipads, and more.

One of the truly fun parts of being aboard a megayacht charter is knowing that you’re having a true one-of-a-kind experience. From the décor to the chef’s specialties to the tenders. Customization is, even more, the name of the game than it is with superyachts. Features can include all kinds of foldout terraces and floor-to-ceiling windows. Megayachts can have fleets of tenders and water toys because the yacht’s size affords more garage space. They also can have extra crew quarters, which can mean crewmembers such as a sous chef, dedicated masseuse, or yoga instructor.
