Charter crewed yacht for a week

I would like to charter aa apron. 80 foot (approx 25 M) yacht for a week next summer along the Cote d'Azur. Can anyone recommend a company and what is the best port to go out of? Thank you.

Obviously flying to Nice, the easiest available yacht ports are Antibes/Juan les Pins/Golfe Juan and Nice, but Cannes is not far either. All these work well for you. As you buy a week, I'm sure the charter company picks you up at the airport and arranges basically everything for you, at a price.

We are not renting those boats for obvious reasons, but I have some professional contacts to people who either own or rent those. One company with a good reputation is "212 Yachts". I would suggest you to search for references, which may not be that easy. - TripAdvisor is perhaps not the right place to find references for big boat charters, and many of the customers are quite discrete to give any contacts, again for obvious reasons. You could perhaps assign someone you trust to review the boat, the crew etc. before you buy?

If you do not plan to go far, just the some 150 miles Monaco - Cassis, you could also think about a (big) sailboat as an alternative. Quiet and comfy ride, lots of space in the hull. Nice places to visit include the islands at Cannes and Hyeres.

Antibes is the main yacht port on the Riviera and the HQ of many yacht brokers . If you Google "yacht brokers antibes" you will pull up a list. Hill Robinson and Camper & Nicholson are 2 major operators.

Great, this was helpful and pointed me into the right direction to do my own research. I did find 212 Yachts in my search already. Again thanks again. I agree this is probably not the best place to seek out exactly what I was looking for but both of you pointed me into the right direction to start my inquiry. Thanks ask much.
