The world is full of wonderful yachting destinations.
The Caribbean chain of islands offers some of the best blue water cruising in the world.
Charter a yacht in the Caribbean and one of these fabulous places. The US & British Virgin Islands, St Marten / St Maarten, St Barth’s, Antigua, St Lucia, St Vincent & The Grenadines, Grenada and The Bahamas only to mention a few. Although Caribbean summers are good the best months to charter here are from November to August.

The Caribbean is a stunning location in which to take a yacht charter vacation; in fact The British Virgin Islands are undoubtedly one of the most popular sailing destinations in the world. Tortola, St Thomas and St John are within close proximity of each other and are also surrounded by a myriad group of further islands making them a superb choice for a touch of island hopping.
Around 66% of St John is a National Park and can boast some of the most charming beaches in the entire Caribbean; just imagine almost white sand slipping between your toes as you take a leisurely stroll. Or maybe you would like to find something slightly more active to do to pass the time? Try some snorkelling in the superbly clear water or maybe take an arduous, but ultimately rewarding, hike through the boulders at the Baths. Because of the warm climate which enjoys year-round temperatures of 75-85 degrees, you will be certain to have a vacation worth remembering for many years to come.
Alaska, Mexico, The Bahamas and Florida…aah, the American dream! North America can offer you some of the most diverse yacht charter vacations imaginable, from the stark beauty of Alaska, to the fun and friendly Floridians; there is something for everyone in this part of the world.
Tahiti, Tahaa, Bora Bora and The Fiji Islands; they all sound equally exotic and slightly reminiscent of romantic movies from the fifties. Imagine dancing the night away on a perfect sandy beach and enjoying the hospitality of the friendly citizens during the day…this is the part of the world where romance will never die! If you charter a yacht in The South Pacific, you will return with stars in your eyes and wonderful memories in your heart.
Phuket, Phang-Nga Bay, the Koh Dam group with Chicken Island and the Phi Phi Islands; has anything ever sounded more exotic? South East Asia truly is the place which dreams are weaved from. Beautiful people and places and a wonderful climate.
The Indian Ocean is also the warmest ocean in the world and a fabulous location for your yacht charter vacation.
From Bodrum to Marmaris, Turkey is home to some beautiful and ancient scenery, all there to be enjoyed on your sumptuous charter yacht vacation. Greece is one of the most ancient countries in the world and enjoys a superbly rich culture. The architecture which has survived from ancient times is certainly a sight to behold and the fact that this country is home to around 10,000 miles of coastland and beaches would mean that it would take years to explore them all. While you may not be on your opulent charter yacht for quite that long, we are sure you will enjoy exploring as many beaches as you can!
The Croatian Coast is also home to more than 1000 islands and inlets and nestles in the warm Adriatic Sea. Dubrovnik is possibly one of the most well-known cities in the country and is quite rightly known as the Jewel of The Dalmatian Coast. Surrounded by its ninth century walls, Dubrovnik is one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Europe with stunning architecture and history to enjoy. The Spanish Coastline and The Balearics are some of Europe’s most popular vacation destinations and have an influx of millions of holiday-makers per year, so probably one of the best ways to see this part of the world is from a luxury yacht charter. This means you will be able to have a peaceful night’s sleep, despite the hustle and bustle of the towns within the area.
The very phrase, “The French Riviera” just makes us all daydream of glamorous days gone by and driving along a sunny coast road in a sports car with the roof down. Why not explore this delightful area from the comfort of a sumptuous yacht charter instead? And as for The Italian Riviera…beautiful language, people, food and architecture; what more could you ask for from a yacht charter vacation? Viva la vacanze!
The Whitsunday Coast and Islands are a very special part of Australia and perfect destinations for a luxury yacht charter vacation.
Auckland and the surrounding islands including Waiheke are some of the most delightful places in the world to visit from aboard a luxury charter yacht.
Waiheke enjoys a super and ever popular wine region where you can enjoy wine tasting, or maybe try some horse riding or a farm tour on this wonderful island.
Private Galapagos Charter –
Set in The Pacific Ocean, The Galapagos Island group is a remote and secluded archipelago and probably most famous for being the location where Charles Darwin discovered the giant tortoise and had the inspiration for “The Origin of the Species.”
A must for lovers of flora and fauna, make the Galapagos Islands part of your yacht charter vacation dreams.
