Ready to cross the Atlantic? If you’re gearing up, we’ve got your back!


Did you know 11% of yachts over 30 m are making the journey from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean? Charter yachts typically spend the summer in the Mediterranean and then sail over the Atlantic Ocean for the winter season. From managing fuel levels to choosing the right time of year, there’s an ocean of details to navigate! Let’s plan your yacht Atlantic cross together!

We’re here to provide support in Barcelona, the Spanish mainland, Palma, the Balearics, as well as Gibraltar and the Canary Islands.


How long does it take to cross the Ocean and what yachts can cross it?


A transatlantic cruise typically lasts from 10 days to three weeks, with many yachts choosing this route during the spring and fall breaks in the yacht charter season.

When it comes to yachts crossing the ocean, many mega yachts and super yachts are capable of doing so, given the distance of around 3,000 nautical miles. However, not all vessels are equipped or built for this challenging journey. For those without the necessary range, we can study alternative options including shipping the yacht on a cargo boat or on a large container ship.
