The 2017 America’s Cup in Bermuda promises to be the yachting event of the century. No less than four history-making yachting regattas in the sun splashed waters of Bermuda at the same time. This Superfecta of yachting includes not only the America’s Cup races, but also the classic J Class Regatta, the Superyacht Regatta and the Rendezvous Tall Ships Regatta. And it that’s not enough exhilaration in one place, Bermuda turns up the heat with its jam-packed annual carnival celebration.

The best place to witness this yachting extravaganza is from the deck of your 2017 America’s Cup Yacht Charter. Ocean Getaways offers a stunning fleet of VIP flagged superyachts, both motor and sail. These yachts will be docked right in the heart of the America’s Cup Village, surrounded by 200 years of yachting history. Our yachts can be used as impressive viewing platforms, for gala dockside events, and for sailing ventures on lay days.  A few are even available to participate in the Superyacht Regatta – definitely a thrill of a lifetime.

The 35th America’s Cup has been re-designed to stage the action even closer to spectator fleet. Bow to bow tacking duels on the AC45 catamarans - which can literally fly above the water at speeds in excess of 30 mph – will splash right before your eyes. As ORACLE TEAM USA fights tooth and nail to retain the trophy, it will tackle the race of its life as it competes with phenomenal rivals from New Zealand, France, Sweden, Japan and the UK. Charter a VIP Superyacht for the duration of the competition, and you’ll be in the thick of things, both on-shore and at sea. A bevy of thrilling regattas, plenty of VIP gala nights and after-parties and the most glamorous events of the year. Bermuda is where it will all be happening, and where your 2017 America’s Cup Yacht Charter will be the memory of a lifetime.
