The Globe’s Leading & Largest Superyacht Brand: IYC Announces A Strong Charter Market, Definitively Surpassing 2021 Record Breaking Numbers

IYC is announcing a strong season for the charter market (based on data for the first six months of the year), already surpassing 2021 record breaking numbers. These powerful figures are in part to the lifted international travel regulations seen in popular charter destinations this past year, increasing demand in the charter market significantly. Now, vacations can be maximized and high net worth individuals can have unlimited destinations to anchor in and cruise through. 

Looking at the 2022 summer charter season: 

  • The Mediterranean travel region saw a 10% increase in bookings compared to 2021. This strong increase was driven by an overall increase in appetite for travel, and particularly by U.S. clients who previously spent two years chartering around North America as a result of travel regulations. 
  • Greece saw an increasing trend in superyacht charters, remaining the number one summer charter destination globally with a 29% market share. France and Italy follow with a 20% and 19% market share respectively. 
  • The Bahamas and New England seem to be experiencing a slower summer season. This was expected, as a result of clients choosing the Mediterranean instead. 

Visionary, Icon & Innovator In The Charter Market: The Largest Fleet Worldwide

IYC is an illustrious leader in the luxury charter industry, presenting the largest fleet worldwide with a total of 130 yachts. The company's growing fleet of charter vessels can be found in all key cruising destinations, including The Mediterranean, The Caribbean, The Bahamas and New England. Since 2015, the brand has increased its fleet by 200%, with the incorporation of 86 luxury superyachts. In addition, as a result of IYC’s strong booking history (including 825 contracts signed since the first semester of 2022 and 6,300 plus days of charter booked), yacht owners have been inclined to add their vessels to the brand’s impressive fleet. 

In the first half of 2022, from January through June, the brand ranked #1 in terms of number of charter weeks booked.
