Yacht Charter Azores
Explore the green islands of the Atlantic
The Azores consist of nine islands and are located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. These green islands offer a mild climate the whole year round, due to the influence of the Gulf Stream. You can charter brand new yachts from Dufour from 37-48' on the island of Faial (Horta Marina) on Ponta Delgada (Island of São Miguel). The sheltered marina of Faial has about 300 mooring places.
