A personalized Caribbean yacht trip offers the best vacation experience of all in the Caribbean islands. Best of all, it’s nice and warm in winter too, unlike the Mediterranean.

The Caribbean, and especially the British Virgin Islands, has long been the darling of the catamaran and  yachting crowd and for good reasons too: the proximity, the regular trade winds, warm water and good weather year-round (barring hurricanes..!!), nice little islands to visit, friendly natives, great beaches, great snorkeling and SCUBA diving, reefs that are actually alive and still with pretty little colored fishes, the Caribbean has it all.

If you are chartering in winter, the best locations are in and around the Virgin Islands that are very protected from the Atlantic swells and waves. You can always find a nice little protected cove or bay to drop anchor or pick up a mooring ball and have a great time, no matter what the weather.

Prime Locations

The most popular Caribbean yacht charter destinations include the BVI, (British Virgin Islands), the USVI (US Virgin Islands), the Bahamas, St. Maarten and St. Barth, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Cuba and the French West Indies islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe.

There is a great selection of both sailing and motor yachts in the Caribbean, but not all are created equal. We represent and recommend only crewed yachts and bareboat companies that have developed a reputation for reliability and good service and, especially in the case of bareboats, that offer newer models and good support and that are reasonably priced.

Although the Caribbean is great any time of year, there are distinct seasons: In Summer, it get’s really, hot and often rains. In winter the temperatures are more reasonable still warm by most people’s standards and it’s drier. The most protected waters for great sailing and exploring are the British Virgin Islands (BVI) The Leeward Islands and the Windward’s are better in summer since the Atlantic waters are largely settled and you don’t get the big rollers coming in from the East.

Let us Choose the Right Boat for You

There is always a good selection of  spacious and stable sailing catamarans or motor yachts for charter in the Caribbean with accommodations suitable for up to 12 guests or more. The most popular yachts in this area are chartered under “Caribbean Terms contracts” which means, in the case of sailing vessels, that they are chartered on an all inclusive basis or all-inclusive package with the base charter rate, the services of the crew, the fuel, the meals, beverages, use of water sports equipment on board, beach towels, linens, etc all included in the price. The exceptions are some of the larger motor yachts that operate and are contracted for, on a “plus expenses” basis.

Caribbean sailing charter

The most important element of a successful and enjoyable charter is the crew. The crew can make or break a charter. We try to match-up the most suitable crews for your group taking into consideration YOUR priorities like water-sports, diving or food; for example, we will always try to give you a crew that complement your group’s preferences. In a nutshell, we will always “customize” the boat and the crew around YOUR group.

In this regard, the boat itself and the age of the boat is not always as important as the crew. Most older boats have been re-fitted and have the look and feel of a much newer boat. Of course it’s always nice to have a spanking new boat, but it’s not as critical as the crew. They will make your experience unforgettable.

Our charter specialists attend the major Caribbean charter yacht shows every year. We always try and keep up to date with the new boats and crews that become available and with any crew changes that have been made.

Yacht Selections:

Powerboats, perhaps better defined as motor yachts are very popular in the Caribbean especially during the winter months.  They are available in all sizes from 50′ feet to 150 ‘ feet. The larger ones are also called “Mega-Yachts” although this definition is vague and there is no real description of exactly what actually constitutes a mega-yacht except perhaps the pricing.

Mega Yacht cruising the Caribbean SeaWe have a fine selection of motor-yachts available and we encourage you to explore the inventory by using the search-engine on this website. There are many additional motor-yachts that are not on this website so please call or email us if you don’t find one that meets your criteria. We’ll find that perfect motor yacht for you.

Many of the larger motor yachts will charter in the Caribbean in winter and then either move to the Mediterranean or New England for the summer months during “hurricane season”.

There are several things to consider when chartering a motor yacht. The most important thing is that most motor yacht are chartered by their owners on a “plus-expenses” basis. This means that the published rate that is shown on the rate sheets is to cover the use of the yacht and the crew for a week. Everything else is extra. Fuel, food and beverage, port taxes, marina fees, all these items, will be charged to the clients account.  To cover these expenses, you will be asked to provide the captain with an Advance Provisioning Allowance or APA. We use the rule of thumb of about 30% to 40% of the base charter rate as an APA.

Caribbean sailboat charters
Sailing charters are the most popular form of yacht charter in the Caribbean and especially in the BVI. Basically, Caribbean  sailboat charters come in two flavors, sailing catamarans and sailing mono-hulls. Catamarans are now considerably more popular and have helped the charter industry to expand the market to those folk who need the additional space and the lateral stability that they offer.

Caribbean Sailboat Charters with Catamarans

For sailing purists, catamarans are clunky and hard to sail close to the wind, nevertheless, since most of us are looking for a vacation and not a sailing regatta, we don’t really care how fast or quick to turn they are. Hey, if you need to travel straight into the wind, drop the sails and turn on the engine..!!

Having said all of that, catamaran design and construction has changed dramatically over recent years and today you’ll find that the principal contenders of the America Cup are mostly catamarans.  Talk about clunky and slow? I don’t think so.

Nevertheless, as charter brokers or agents, WE need to know your preferences. So when you are filling in the contact forms on this website please let us know your preference – some people get very passionate about one or the other. Especially bareboaters who captain their own Caribbean sailboat charters.

We have a great selection of both fully-crewed catamarans and fully-crewed sailing mono-hulls as well as their bareboat counterparts, so tell us which you like and we’ll find  the right one anyway.  Catamarans of course have less draft than mono-hulls and can get closer to the beach without running aground.  This is not a big deal in the BVI, for example, but it IS A BIG DEAL in, say, the Bahamas where the waters are very shallow.

When looking for the perfect yacht charter, whether this be sailing or motor, the more information you share with us the better. It makes it a lot easier to find the right boat, in the right place at the right time (and at the right price!).

bvi catamaran charter

More and more of our clients are requesting catamarans for their bareboat or fully crewed  British Virgin Islands and Caribbean charters. There is a good reason for this preference since BVI catamaran charters are generally more stable and have more internal living space, so you and your group can spread out, relax and enjoy without the cramped feeling of a traditional mono or single-hull  vessel. We can provide BVI catamaran charters in many shapes and sizes – from 40′ in length to over 75′ – whatever the size of your group we can find one that meets your space and budget requirements.

Catamarans are designed with two pontoons and are very wide and spacious, some vessels have three pontoons and are designated as “trimarans”. These are even wider and the middle pontoon generally accommodates the salon, and the galley. Some catamarans have the bare essentials and others have every luxury and amenity you can think of.  Some are fully air conditioned and others have full hatch-cover ventilation.  Of course you will be in the tropics so it’s important to think of this aspect. During the winter months some people find a/c an unnecessary luxury, certainly I find it very important to have this in summer when the temperatures soar. It’s especially nice to have a/c during the night so you can get a good night’s rest.

Enjoy Our BVI Catamaran Charters

bvi catamaran charterNot that you will be spending much time actually inside the boat, but nevertheless, when you do decide to relax with some shut-eye after a “busy” day of snorkeling, exploring and sunning, you will have the space and privacy that you need. The layout is usually designed so that there are two cabins in each pontoon. Again, depending on the design, each cabin may have its own bathroom (or head as they are called) or there may be a shared bathroom in each pontoon.

The width of a catamaran provides, not only a great deal of space, but more importantly provides a lateral stability that allows the vessel to maintain its upright position even in a brisk breeze. Many of our clients feel uncomfortable with the tilting of a traditional mono-hull sailing boat, and this is one of the main reasons for BVI catamaran charters popularity.

See our BLOG article on BVI catamaran charter itineraries and also about chartering with the kids.

bvi catamaran charterWhen chartering a bareboat or fully crewed sailing or power catamaran in the BVI (or anywhere in the Caribbean or Mediterranean) for that matter, bear in mind that you have choices, you can charter a traditional sailing vessel with one hull or you can go for the space and privacy of a catamaran. They also come in all sizes from 2 cabins to 5 cabins and a few with 6 cabins. There may be a little extra room in the salon for a couple more kids and even a “pullman” or pull-down bunk in one or two of the cabins so that kids can sleep with their parents if necessary.

BVI Catamaran Charters For Everyone Including Families on a Budget

It’s not uncommon for a family of 10 or 12 guests, including an assortment of kids, to use a bareboat catamaran that can accommodate everyone. Remember that if you have a skipper on your bareboat, you will have to assign one of the cabins to the captain. Search for bareboat catamarans on our easy to use search engine.

We offer a wide selection of catamarans of different shapes, sizes and capacities – please use our Yacht Search feature to see the many available bareboat or fully crewed catamarans in the BVI and the Caribbean and Mediterranean.

captain onlySome of our fully-crewed charter yachts, especially the smaller catamarans and mono-hulls and even motor-yachts can be chartered as “captain-only” vessels. In this respect chartering a skipper-only or captain-only or simply a bareboat with a skipper is pretty much the same.  The only difference being that with the former you’ll know who your skipper will be beforehand. The bareboat operating companies cannot tell you who will be on your charter since they come from a pool of free-lance skippers on an as-needed basis.

This can be a pretty good option these days when funds are tight but you’d still like to spend some quality time on the water.

This does mean however that you and your group will have to provision the boat at your expense and do your own meal preparation and pay for the fuel. Yes, you can save some money by doing this but not a lot. Here’s why:

In all likelihood, you’ll not want to cook every evening so you’ll have the additional expense of eating ashore some of the evenings. The local restaurants tend to be quite pricey and the food will be unexceptional.  Under normal circumstances you would have breakfasts and lunches on the boat which is no big deal: cereal, fruit or yogurt for breakfast, sandwiches, chips, salad for lunch. Snacks to go with the wine bottle and the six-pack.

captain olnyThe evenings is where it all breaks down. You’ll normally have 7 nights and 7 dinners to worry about. You can get away with a evening or two when guys are grilling on the barbecue (yes, there usually is a gas or charcoal grill on board). But you WILL go ashore for two or three evenings and that’s where the price equation becomes less attractive.

Provisioning the boat is not that complicated, the major supermarket chains in the islands are excellent and other stores usually have an online ordering and delivery service, your we can help with names, websites and phone numbers.

Be sure to do the math beforehand.  Remember that provisions, groceries, vegetables, meat, etc. will all be much more expensive than in your home country. Everything in the islands is imported. The booze is cheaper, but the everyday necessities are more expensive. A bottle of rum is cheaper than a dozen eggs….!!

Guide

The British Virgin Islands or BVI as they are known, continues to be the primary location for most sailors and has choice destinations for both fully crewed and bareboat sailing experiences in the Caribbean.

The reason is simple: it provides an excellent yachting experience ANY TIME OF YEAR.

Even in adverse conditions, you can always find  a little bay, cove or anchorage with a nice beach that is protected. This means it’s almost like an insurance policy for your vacation.

Neither your broker, boat or crew can guarantee the weather or the sea conditions at any time regardless of  how much or how little you spend, the BVI, however offers the best odds. The Virgin Islands are protected by the Anegada reef so your vacation will likely be a success, and your investment protected. Of course if you go down anywhere in the Caribbean during hurricane season, you’re at risk, so it’s better to buy trip cancellation insurance if your are chartering during the months of July, August, September or October.

The Virgin islands can get quite crowded at different times of year, especially during the December holiday season and Spring Break. Even during these peak periods however, you can have a relaxing and enjoyable vacation if you have a good crew who knows where to go, even if there are a lot of boats around.

Fly into STT or EIS and pick up your charter in either the US Virgin Island of St. Thomas or if you have a larger group charter party group, take the ferry to West End, Tortola that has fewer embarkation restrictions.  Call us or email us for suggested itineraries.

The Leeward Islands are another great place for a yacht charter. The Leewards include St. Martin, Anguilla, St. Bart, Antigua and Barbuda, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saba, Montserrat.

The distances between islands in this area are much greater than in the Virgin Islands so you will find yourself actually sailing, or “under way” as the sailors put it, over larger expanses of ocean. The seas here can be steeper too especially during the winter so some prior sailing experience is advisable.

St Bart is the jewel of the Leewards, you’ll find it expensive and celebrity studded. It is a French island but the local influence is pervasive and provides a laid-back element to the fine French art of living.  Haute living “lite” with great shopping.

St Martin is half Dutch and half French, which is an interesting mixture but there is an excellent international airport so visitors from Europe or the United States can easily fly into this larger island and it’s the best place to start your charter vacation. Take a day or two at the front or back end of your sailing vacation to explore St. Martin.

The West side of Anguilla is usually calm and inviting with great beaches and reefs for diving.

If you really, really, love beaches with a dash of history thrown in, Antigua is for you. It’s also a larger island with a good airport and direct flights from the USA.

The locals swear that there are 365 beaches on this island, one for every day of the year, and if you’re a history buff you must visit English Harbour on the South side of the Island  which was Lord Nelsons first posting after he graduated from naval college in England. The old Forts and other military installations have been well preserved and the whole complex is the venue for the annual Antigua charter yacht show that is held in early December every year.

Then, of course we have the French islands proper of Guadeloupe and Martinique, these islands are actually a part of France and are considered full “Departments” or Provinces of the Republic. The French language is generally spoken  here and visitors are mostly French or European. As you can imagine, the food is superb but the Euro reigns supreme here and things tend to get a little pricey.

Then, on our Southward route we finally come to the marvelous island of St. Lucia and then St. Vincent and the Grenadines  and  of course Grenada itself.

Sailing charters tend to travel from North to South here due to the favorable winds. One way trips are preferred and quite common. The Grenadines include the smaller islands of Bequia, Mustique, Canouan, Union, Carriacou and Tobago and end up in Grenada.

Navigation in these waters is best in late Spring, Summer and Fall.  During the winter months you can expect some fairly rough seas especially in-between the islands as you travel southwards.  Although they have been known to occur, hurricanes are not frequent in these latitudes during the summer so it’s a place where the North Eastern Caribbean based boats tend to migrate to in summer in order to escape the hurricane belt.

I will include the Bahamas in this listing although these beautiful islands are not technically part of the Caribbean since  they are not volcanic and are too far North to be in the tropical belt.  Best places to visit in the Bahamas are the Sea of Abaco (you need to fly into Marsh Harbour), the Exumas chain of Islands (you need to fly into Nassau, Staniel Cay or Georgetown) and the Out-Islands (no place to fly to except to Georgetown and take a charter yacht from there.

The Bahamian people are delightful, especially the further away from Nassau and Freeport you can get.

This is a quick and dirty guide to the major Caribbean destinations, Please also check out our Caribbean destinations section where you will find additional and more detailed information on each of these areas. In the immortal words of  Capt.  Jack Sparrow: “Why is the Rum bottle ALWAYS empty….??”.

Menu/Dining

Caribbean Catamaran Aft Deck DiningIf you charter a fully-crewed charter yacht in the Caribbean, it will most likely include a Skipper and a chef, some of the larger catamarans and motor yachts may also have additional personnel on board – ranging from an additional deck-hand (or more than one, depending on the size) and stewards or stewardesses to make your trip more luxurious and enjoyable.  However this article is primarily about the CHEFS and the Food you can expect on board.

First, kudos to all marine chefs – for the most part they prepare delicious meals and do incredible things in their small galleys (kitchens) on a moving  yacht.  There are many husband and wife or boyfriend / girlfriend combinations that crew the charter fleets. One of the two generally has control of the meal preparation, sometimes it is shared. Other larger yachts have a permanent chef and other yachts will recruit a chef from a pool of free-lance chefs that are available on the date of the charter. Check with your broker and READ the brochure carefully.

Here’s how it works: about 30 days before the date of the charter, you (the client / charterer) will receive a set of Preference Sheets from your charter broker. You will need to fill these out carefully, taking your WHOLE GROUP”S preferences into consideration. If there are special dietary needs or strong likes and dislikes or if there are allergies involved with foodstuffs, THIS IS THE TIME TO MAKE THEM KNOWN.  If you have a preference for certain brands or types of beverages (diet, regular, lite), let us know. The crew and especially the chef will need to have this information available when the time comes to provision the boat for your charter. If there are questions, they should be discussed directly with the Captain or Chef before the charter. Typically there will be a phone conversation between you and the crew about 7 to 14 days before the start date.

Generally speaking, the food you will get on board a good charter yacht will surpass anything you can get ashore. Local restaurants in the Caribbean, with honorable exceptions, are uneventful and with similar menus. fried fish, burgers, conch fritters, jerk chicken, soggy salads, etc. Everything in the islands is imported from the USA in containers, the quality of food in the restaurants is largely dependent on when the last container came in.  The yachts provision from the larger wholesale supermarkets that actually fly stuff in on a daily basis and they will shop (provision) for YOUR charter and go out themselves to purchased only those items that are fresh and recently arrived. Hard liquor is cheap in the islands. Wine is not and the wine selections are limited. The coke in arum and coke is more expensive than the rum. A bottle of rum costs less than a dozen eggs.  You have make a major adjustment to your thinking…!!

Menus will vary from yacht to yacht depending on the chef’s specialty and training.  Most are superb, furthermore they are catering to YOUR tastes with the finest and freshest ingredients available.  Sample menus are sometimes available from the charter yacht you have chosen, check with your broker.  Bon Apetit.

Booking Your Airfare

For the Virgin Islands it’s usually best to fly into St. Thomas (STT) in the US Virgin Islands that has an international airport that is serviced by many of the major US carriers like American Airlines, Delta, Spirit Air and others. There is also a small airport in Tortola in the BVI called Beef Island airport (EIS) that is serviced by SeaBourne airlines and Cape Air out of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

For the Leeward Islands, you should fly in to St. Martin (SXM) that has a large international airport that is serviced by both US and European carriers.  Antigua is a possibility for the Leeward Islands but it’s a little out of the way.

If your charter includes the Grenadines, you should plan to fly into St. Lucia (SLU) that has an International airport  and then onward to St. Vincent although some Grenadines charters can start directly from St. Lucia.
