Yacht Charter Destinations

Where to Cruise & Type of Yacht

Start your sailing plans by picking where to cruise and the type of yacht you want to be aboard. Vacations are about rest, relaxation, and, of course, indulgence. When you charter a fully crewed yacht, you get all of that plus the added bonus of privacy. Moreover, there are no lines to wait in for dinner. No timetable to keep. It is the ultimate escape.

Explore a range of yacht charter destinations, from the lap of luxury to comfortable cruising, all nestled in some of the world’s most beautiful locations. The number of reputable crewed yachts available for charter worldwide is approximately 1,800. This fleet includes Catamarans, Power Cats, Sailboats, and decadent Motor Yachts,

The US Virgin Islands and British Virgin Islands provide the largest concentration of charter yachts in the Caribbean. Other locations such as St. Martin/St. Maraarten, Antigua/Barbuda, Martinque, St. Lucia, St. Vincent/Grenadines and the Tobago Cays. provide ports for the rest of the Caribbean charter fleet. All these locations offer great sailing conditions and a variety of itineraries to choose from. In addition, they all are relatively easy destinations to reach by either a scheduled airline or chartered flight.

Looking for a summer ‘hot spot’ for your sailing vacation? Consider a Mediterranean charter. Cruising off the coasts of the French Riviera, the Italian Riviera, or the waters of Spain’s Balearic Islands will have you hobnobbing with many of the world’s most rich and famous jet-setters.

If you crave adventure, set sail on a yacht charter vacation amongst the stunning yacht charter destinations of the Greek Islands, Turkey, and Croatia. Explore the ancient ruins of Greece and Turkey, or cruise the ruggedly beautiful coastline of Croatia.

Closer to home, there is always the option of finding a luxury crewed yacht to cruise the Florida Inter-Coastal Waterway, departing either Ft. Lauderdale or Miami for ports in the Florida Keys or possibly the Bahamas. The crewed charter yacht fleet based in Florida is primarily made up of luxury motor yachts, with just a few crewed monohull sailboats, catamarans, and bareboats available.

The islands of the Bahamas offer a variety of cruising options and itineraries. Having access to a good sized airport makes Nassau a popular port to begin a charter yacht vacation cruise.

Like Florida, the crewed yacht fleet based in the Bahamas is primarily made up of luxury motor yachts, with only a few crewed monohull sailboats, catamarans and bareboats available. Most of the crewed sailing vessels based in the Bahamas are catamarans, with a couple of exceptions. For the most part, these yachts are based in Nassau and cruise in either the Abacos or the Exumas.

A word about chartering in Florida or the Bahamas in early winter—don’t. Mid March is the earliest you would want to charter in these waters for the most comfortable weather.

There are two more great options for a summertime sailing vacation close to home. How about chartering a yacht to cruise the coasts of either New England, or Maine?

A cruise in New England can encompass such historic places as Boston, Newport, Block Island, Martha’s Vineyard, Mystic Seaport, and Nantucket Island. Here, you’ll be sailing the waters of America’s birthplace.

The rugged scenic coast of Maine offers a noticeably short season for cruising, but it’s well worth it. The water may be too cold, and the fog can be thick, but you go there for the fresh lobster, clam bakes, and the fall colors. Life doesn’t get any better than that.
