Saliboats are also referred to as monohulls. They are the favorite type of vessel of the traditional sailor. The Caribbean Islands are popular vacation destinations. Known for their stunning beaches, crystal-clear waters, and vibrant cultures.

There is an endless amount of activities to participate in such as SCUBA diving, snorkeling, swimming with an occasional dolphin and other colorful marine life. island hopping, beachcombing are also popular activities. If that's not enough, you can also go deep-sea fishing, explore historic sites, and secluded cays. These are all popular things to do throughout the Caribbean Island chain.

If you are looking for an intimate and customized vacation experience, Charter the Caribbean is happy and able to assist you in finding the ideal catamaran and crew that best fits your preferences. Chartering a Saliboat is a popular and a wonderful way to experience the islands' beautiful scenery and clear blue turquoise waters.

The typical Sailboat range in sizes from 45 ft. in length with a 14 ft. beam to 130 ft. in length with a 22 ft. beam.

Typical Layout of a Sailboat

A Saiiboat can have two to as many as six guest ensuits cabins. These cabins are located in what is referred to as the lower deck. Also located in the lower deck is the salon with comfortable seating, a table for formal dinning and the Galley. The main deck consisted of a foredeck for lounging and sunbathing. The aft cockpit on the main deck, offers additional shaded seating and a table for an al fresco dining experience, and the helm station.

Aft of the helm station there is uaually a stairway for easy access down to the water's edge to go swimming or for getting in or out of the tender.

There are currently just a few Sailboats in the charter fleet that can accommodate up to twelve guests. Typically, these are exceptionally large yachts with as many as six staterooms, plus the necessary crew cabins.

Some of the many amenities and services offered aboard a Sailboats can include individual cabin controlled air conditioning, push button electric toilets, separate shower stalls, water makers, a variety of water sports equipment, SCUBA diving along with all the necessary gear. For that extra service aboard some of the larger Sailboats, additional crew members may be added.

Where Can Sailboats Be Found

Sailboats are today a very popular style of sailing vessel all around the world. They are are designed to handle both calm seas and heavy seas, along with light air and big winds. Aboard a sailboat charter the crew will always try to avoid heavey weather sailing to ensure the guests comfort. On the other hand there are some guests that enjoy the excitement and adventue heavy weather sailing offers.

The Caribbean island chain offers relatively calm seas conditions, in such cruising areas as the Virgin Islands, which is the hub of the term charter yacht industry in the Caribbean. Areas such as the islands of the  Grenadines are equally great for cruising aboard a Sailboat.

Chartering a Sailboat in the Mediterranean Sea is also an ideal. There are times during the season the seas are very calm, with winds a little more than a breeze. This makes for some very comfortable sailing.

The Bahamas including Nassau, the Abacos, and Exuma, plus many more of their smaller Bahamian Islands are also great locations to cruise aboard a Sailboat, provided it is a shallow draft vessal. In the Bahamas the water is very shallow, making chartering a deep draft can be very limiting.

You will find Sailboats sailing in such popular cruising areas of the Caribbean as AnguillaSint Maarten/Saint MartinSaint Bart'sAntiguaBarbudaSaint KittsNevisMartinique, and St. Lucia. However, I do not recommend these areas for first-time cruising clients. It’s not so much for the seas being too rough, but for the amount of open ocean you will be exposed to with large swells that sometimes make a novice sailor feel very uncomfortable.

Three Simple Steps to a Great Sailing Vacation

First Step:
Go to the "Crewed Yachts" section of my website, pick-out a category of yacht you're interested in chartering. Browse through the yachts displayed along with the links to the yacht's website to learn about the various layouts and amenities that are available.
Second Step:
Go to the Information Request section and click-on Just Shopping Around. This takes you to the "Yacht Search Tool."
Third Step:
Once on this page, complete the clickable form by indicating:
  • Where you plan to charter.
  • The number of guests in your charter party.
  • The type of yacht you plan to charter.
  • The beginning and ending dates of your charter
  • Select a budget range (which is extremely important)
  • Then click-on Search

Your efforts will be rewarded with a list of yachts, along with their website, that match your preferences in Real-Time.

Now click on the In the large Information Request form. Fill in all the necessary and required information the form requests  In the "Additional Information" box, type in names of the yachts you found interestimg that the Yacht Search Tool provided. This is also a place to list any other details you feel I should know about your charter plans.

Now that you completed the form click on "Send Me." I will now be able to provide you with a proposal consisting of a confirmation of the current charter rates, availability, and pickup and drop off ports. I will also offer my opinion about what I know personally about the yachts, and crews you selected.

I will most likely include some additional information about a few yachts you may have overlooked, only because I may have some information and experience with these yachts and crews, I feel you should know about to make an informed decision.

FYI: There are more the 1500 fully crewed charter yachts available around the world in different sizes and shapes, with budget ranges from $10,000 a week to over $300,000 a week. This three step process takes the guess work out of putting together a meaningful customized proposal that fits all your preferences. It makes no sense wasting your time proposing yachts in the $30,000 a week range, when your budget dictates the yachts, you’re interested in knowing more about are in a $20,000 a week range.
