Perfect for first-time and experienced sailors, this destination offers an array of attractions and activities and this is what makes it such a revered luxury Caribbean sailing vacation spot.
Keep in mind that a yacht charter offers an indepth and intimate itinerary of a local destination. Unlike a cruise ship that sails from San Juan to Grenada in back in a week’s time, yachts offer a leisurely pace sailing to many places that the big ships cannot get to. Following are just a few of the best Bahamas and Caribbean highlights:
The US and British Virgin are the most popular destination for Caribbean yacht vacations. The closeness of the islands and the calmness of the seas make it the ideal Caribbean sailing vacation destination for first time charterers as well as families.
The USVIs offer nighttime excitement, luxury resorts, top-notch restaurants, extraordinary diving and snorkeling, and pristine national parks. The BVI, on the other hand, still boasts the same unspoiled nature yet are far less commercialized and developed, so they offer a much more laid-back sailing adventure during your luxury yacht vacations in Caribbean. Because you’re in the Caribbean, needless to say, you’ll find a nearly infinite number of stellar beaches and perfect aquamarine waters no matter where you go.
With world-renowned hot spots like St. Maarten, Anguilla, St. Barth’s, Barbuda and Antigua, the Leeward Islands are arguably the most cosmopolitan of all the Caribbean yacht vacations' spots, with the cultural flair of its numerous colonizers, including France, Holland and the UK, permeated into the local culture, heritage and cuisine. From world-class Michelin-starred restaurants, to championship golf courses, luxury spas and plenty of pristine marine reserves brimming with vibrant underwater life, the Leewards offer you the very best of a Caribbean yacht vacations experience.
This modest archipelago of 30-odd islands and cays were the Caribbean’s most hidden gem. St Vincent and the Grenadines still remain, despite their popularity, some of the least visited islets in the entire region. A hub of eco-tourism and nature-rich escapism, St Vincent and the Grenadines are a nature-lover’s paradise. One only need cast their eyes on the Tobago Cays to agree. These five uninhabited isles are tropical perfection, with emerald waters and an ocean-full of colorful fish and coral attracting snorkelers and divers on their Caribbean sailing vacation from all over the world. In the Grenadines, you will also find a few exclusive islands, home to elegant resorts and restaurants, making it an ideal choice for groups of friends or families who want to taste a variety of Caribbean spices during their Caribbean yacht vacations. The ideal weeklong itinerary for sailing yachts or catamarans is to cast off on a one-way itinerary from St. Vincent to Union Island.
Once forbidden to U.S travelers, Cuba’s doors are now open for yacht charter vacations. Savor the old world charm of Havana with its vintage cars, pulsating rhythms, historic cites and welcoming people. Or escape to the south side of the island for pristine diving on some of the world’s most untouched reefs.
The Bahamas are a pristine yacht charter destination with over 700 islands and a variety of itinerary possibilities in a 100,000 square mile cruising area. Although proximate to the U.S., once you set sail from Nassau or Marsh Harbor you feel miles from nowhere. You can be the first one to make footprints in the sand every day. Often, your yacht is the only one in the anchorage. The coral reefs are teeming with a kaleidoscope of fish. The sport fishing is world class, and the beaches are unspoiled and inviting. A Bahamas yacht charter is a snorkeling, diving and scuba paradise on your Caribbean sailing vacations.
Unspoiled by tourism, this chain of forty islands (only eight are inhabited), boasts mile after mile of untouched beaches, breathtaking sapphire waters and the third largest coral reef on earth. Providenciales is continuously honored by Conde Naste as having one of the best beaches the world . And when you’ve had enough surf and sand, can enjoy Its championship golf course, casino, shopping and fine restaurants.

Few luxury yacht charter destinations enjoy the popularity and glamor of Europe and the Mediterranean. The revered stomping ground of the rich and famous for well over a century, it is here that you’ll find some of the most élite sailing yachts, catamarans, and superyachts. And that’s because it’s right here that you’ll find some of the most enticing waters of all, framed by stunning coastlines brimming with ancient towns, historic attractions and a wealth of natural wonders. A kaleidoscope of diverse cultures and cuisines await you at every port. Splendid marinas are your gateway to exclusive shopping, dining, and sightseeing.
For a thoroughly comprehensive luxury yacht experience, Europe and the Mediterranean region are simply unrivalled. Here are the most popular highlights you can include in your European luxury yacht charter itinerary:
The French Riviera is synonymous with glamour, glitz, high-fashion and the finer things in life. Yet the Cote d’Azur is so much more than that! Alongside championship golf courses and famous port cities like Monaco, Cannes and Nice, there are also the countless historic villages perched on dramatic cliffs. You’ll have amazing wineries to visit, deep sapphire waters in which to jetski and protected marine reserves in which to snorkel.
The most popular destination in Italy is the spectacular Amalfi Coast, which starts just south of Naples and stretches for 30 spectacular miles. Renowned for its jaw-dropping rugged limestone coastlines, fluorescent caves, verdant hills teeming with lemon groves and arguably the most delicious seafood in the whole Mediterranean. Dreamy postcard destinations like Positano, Amalfi, Ravello and Sorrento, and the crown jewel of the area – the fabled island of Capri, the “go to” vacation spot for everyone from Garbo to Jackie “O”. La Dolce Vita!
The flair of southern France plus the historic charm of Italy blend into two unforgettable island getaways. The sapphire waters of Corsica and Sardinia are the less renowned gems of the Mediterranean with rousing mountainous landscapes, historic walled cities perched at the edge of the sea, and unspoilt sandy beaches. You can roll the dice in the bling bling port of Porto Cervo, get a quick archeology lesson on a guided tour of the ruins in Cagliari, or slip away for some peace and plenty in the moonlit Iles de Maddalena..
With a tumultuous and fascinating history, this is a culture lover’s dream. Renowned for her active volcanoes, awe-inspiring landscapes and a rich and addictive cuisine, Italy’s southern main island - and her countless island treasures of volcanic origin – are one of the most distinctive corners of the Mediterranean. Sicily simmers with a melting pot history that has influenced its art and architecture and infused its people with a spicy zest for life. Combining the historic and bustling ports of Sicily with a cruise to its offshore islands, the Aeolians, serves up the perfect blend of buzz and bask. Don’t miss the continuously spewing Stromboli.
A slightly more laid-back glamor destination than the French Riviera, yet just as rewarding, the Southern coast of Spain and the Balearic Islands are perfect for those who like “Livin La Vida Loca” as well as those just seeking a relaxing getaway in a stunning locale. This Spanish archipelago which includes With popular hubs like Mallorca, Formentera and Ibiza offers fantastic wining, dining and shopping with a concoction of beautiful marine parks to satisfy a nature lover’s thirst.
The eastern coastline of the Adriatic Sea is considered by many to be the most outstanding yachting destination in Europe. Ancient walled villages, cobalt blue waters and UNESCO world heritage sites dot Croatia’s mountainous Dalmatian Coast. With more than 1,100 islands to explore along a 1,000-mile coastline, Croatia is a powerhouse yacht charter destination with smiling English speaking locals, farm and sea to table cuisine, thriving nightlife, secluded coves, and world class wineries. The frosting on this delectable charter cake is that the islands are close to one another making sailing distances short. Perfect for first time charterers as well as those who prefer to have as much time ashore as possible.
Not sure where Montenegro is? Let us tell you! Just south of Croatia, cradled along a short but magnificent coastline, Montenegro is one of the least-known destinations in Europe, and one of the most surprising. Hidden coves, alpine landscapes, pristine national parks cascading down to the sea, and a distinctive culture: Montenegro is, without a doubt, a true hidden Mediterranean gem.
Greece and her world-famous islands are the one yacht destination everyone on the planet dreams about. Thousands of islands, thousands of itineraries and endless attractions. You could sail in Greece for years on end and still not see it all. White-washed villas, vibrant bougainvillea covered hills, loud and proud locals, insanely beautiful waters and millennia upon millennia of history. This may well be the cradle of European civilization, and for yacht charter guests, still the most coveted prize of all.
Turkey’s Turquoise Coast is favored by seasoned sailors and all those who want to experience the fascinating fusion of East meets West. One of the fastest changing stretch of the whole Mediterranean, the Turkish Coast has gone from desolate and wild, to perpetually popular, in just a couple of short decades. Yet much of the wilderness remains, as do the thousand-year-old castles built on the beach and the relaxed and welcoming locals. Some call this the world’s largest open-air museum, and coupled with a delectable cuisine and some of the clearest waters in the Mediterranean, Turkey offers one of the most diverse yacht charter experiences in all of Europe.
For a change of pace, scenery, and cuisine, Northern Europe is the one place we urge everyone to visit, at least once. The choices are vast - the Baltic Sea and the coast of Sweden, Norway, and Scotland are all an adventure sailor’s dream. Or head to Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean - you may not want to frolic in the waves this far north, but when the trade-off includes polar bears, walruses, narwhals, white and bowhead whales, a yachting experience to a polar region is insanely rewarding.
