There are still some sail boats available in the Med for yacht charters this summer (2006). If you'd like a Mediterranean sailing vacation, consider these fine yachts:
Dulcinea is a 63-foot sloop with prime dates still open. They have accommodations for six guests in three double cabins with individual TV, radio/CD player and A/C controls. Captain Teal Standen and his wife Anna, do a first rate job pampering charterers. Guests who sailed with them last fall wrote: “We just came back from Italy and the trip was great! Dulcinea is a beautiful boat! Teal and Anna were fantastic, very kind, attentive, and humble. Anna is a great passionate cook and Teal a very responsible and caring skipper. We had a great time with them.”
WEEKLY RATES: $15,000/2 guests $16,000/4 $17,000/6 (plus all expenses)
Liara is a 65-foot sloop with good family accommodations in three cabins: queen master cabin aft with ensuite heads; forward double guest cabin which shares head with the third guest cabin that has upper/lower single berths. Captain Ross Appleby and Chef Laurie Ward know the best spots in the Mediterranean from East to West! Regarding recent yardwork, Liara's owner reports, “She’s looking really terrific! We just painted the entire hull, installed a brand new, quieter generator and got brand new high tech sails.”
WEEKLY RATES: $18,500 for up to 6 guests, plus all expenses. Available in Western Med from 4 -21 August 2006, and after 5 September in Monaco.

There are also two guest cabins, each having a pair of large twin lower singles (not bunks). All cabins have ensuite head/shower. Lots of space for relaxing : the roomy cockpit, panoramic deck saloon and spacious lower saloon.
