Is there a minimum number of nights? In general, we have a 3-night minimum. We have done a few groups that chartered the yachts for 4 nights and had two groups sailing back-to-back for two nights each.
When is the boarding time? Boarding can be anytime from noon on. Disembarkation is also at noon. Given that you have exclusive use, boarding can be at any time you choose. Given flight times, people generally board from noon to 4:00 p.m. This still gives us enough time to set sail on the first day.
Can you accommodate meetings? We have a few yachts that can accommodate small meetings onboard, especially on our MegaYacht Fleet. In general, we use meeting rooms at shoreside resorts for more formal meetings.
Do we need a DMC (Destination Management Company)? We handle all of your shoreside arrangements in many of our remote locations like the BVI. This includes meetings, shoreside parties, ground transfers, meet and greet, etc. In more developed ports like St. Thomas, we highly recommend local companies to handle these venues for you.
Can we board the yachts in the U.S. and sail to the Caribbean? No, our yachts do not cover the distances that cruise ships cover, and we do not sail through the night. Instead, we offer a leisurely and intimate view of a small chain of islands or coastal areas.
What do you do on a yacht if there is inclement weather? Of course this differs with location, but let's discuss the Caribbean. It is rare to have a full or even partial day of rain here. If it does happen, it is usually still warm and we find that many people still carry on with water activities. On a moment's notice, we can easily change the itinerary and focus on more land-based activities - a shopping tour, a pub crawl, or an island expedition.
