Cruising Destinations Availability: WHERE TO GO

Camper & Nicholsons
13th August 2020

With the world slowly starting to open up again, swimming in warm waters off your favourite yacht is front of mind and Camper & Nicholsons are keeping a close eye on where to go and what you can do.

The Mediterranean offers the greatest array of options for those already in Europe, and the unrestricted travel to The Maldives, The Seychelles and French Polynesia present incredible charter experiences for those looking to head further afield.

Keep up to date with international developments using our helpful guide, and get back onboard this summer.

To discuss your charter requirements and to review a selection of yachts available in your desired location, or for further advice on safe cruising, please contact our team.

This information is correct at the time of publication, and will be updated daily wherever possible. These details are provided to the best of our knowledge, but feel free to reach out to our team or charter brokers before traveling.
