Top 7 Sailing Superyachts to Charter This Winter

Megayacht, gigayacht, superyacht…what, exactly, is the difference? According to The International Superyacht Society’s website, any luxury yacht measuring longer than 24 meters qualifies as a superyacht.

Although gigayachts and megayachts aren’t defined by the society, some experts have defined a megayacht as measuring 46 to 65 meters and a gigayacht as 66 to 90 meters.

Here are 6 superyachts we recommend hiring for a winter getaway.
