Caribbean yacht charters | SailAway’s Top Three Secret Caribbean Beaches

Posted on

SailAway Yacht Charters’ Picks for Best Secret Beaches in the Caribbean:

* Lameshur Bay Beach, St. John
* Happy Bay, St. Martin
* Palm Beach, Barbuda

The Story:

For years,  travel agents and yacht charter brokers have promoted the British Virgin Islands as “Nature’s Little Secret.”  Unfortunately for luxury sailing charter travelers seeking solace and quiet anchorages, the secret is out.  While the BVI and most of the Caribbean remains a fantastic sailing destination, there’s no denying it – it is getting harder and harder to anchor off the shore of a quiet beach. 
The good news is that there are still undiscovered beaches in the Caribbean — blissful hideaways where tourism hasn’t yet eclipsed the local culture. 
The most experienced Caribbean yacht charter skippers know these secret beaches but are reluctant to disclose their locations.  Fortunately, our loyalties are to our charter clients – and we are more than willing to share these hidden gems with our readers!
Here are our favorite top three secret beaches in the Caribbean:
Lameshur Bay Beach, St. John, USVI
While the bareboat yacht charter crowd is anchored off the Baths in Virgin Gorda, BVI, we like slide across Drake Channel to the US side of the Virgin Islands and go ashore on the secluded southeast coast of St. John, at Lameshur Bay beach.  At the end of the cobblestone beach at Lameshur is a more isolated, sandier strip known as Donkey Bight. Snorkelers love this beach, as it leads to Beehive Cove, a warren of caves and tunnels filled with coral and sea sponges and teaming with fish.
Physical fitness buffs can also enjoy a 1.2 mile hike up a trail to the 1,000-foot peak of Bordeaux Mountain, which overlooks the bay below.  Photograph of a beige sand beach, seagrape leaves in the left hand and front of the photo, and island at the back right side of the photo. Turquoise water that blends to dark blue as it gets further away.
Happy Bay, St. Martin
Located on the French side of St. Martin, Happy Bay is an underpopulated stretch of crème-colored sand. Thick underbrush surrounds the beach and serves as a challenging barrier to most shore-based tourists. The privacy of this beach has made it a popular spot for clothing optional tourists.  Snorkelers marvel at the vast numbers of tropical fish in the crystal waters.
Palm Beach, Barbuda
While nearby Antigua flaunts bustling beachside hotels, Barbuda offers quiet beaches with pink sands, the Frigate Bird Sanctuary, and only a handful of resorts.  Antigua is a great place to begin a superyacht charter (international airport, and excellent megayacht marinas) but do yourself a favor after your board – cruise over to Barbuda and enjoy the solitude…

Floating City: World’s Most Expensive Superyacht

Posted on

We receive numerous inquires each summer for a yacht in Monte Carlo.  Somehow, we don't think this is what the typical luxury yacht charter customer has in mind: 
Plans are underway to build the world's first $1 billion dollar yacht.

British-based architects Yacht Island Design have come up with the concept of a James Bond-esque yacht that looks like a small city.  Motor yacht STREETS of MONACO will be a $1.1 billion project, built to resemble Monte Carlo, the municipality within the principality of Monaco, and known for its casino, luxury resorts, and annual Formula 1 Grand Prix race.

The +500 foot yacht will feature four levels and boast a casino, go-kart circuit, tennis courts, and multiple pools with swim-up Jacuzzi bars. Plans also include a massive dining room with underwater views.  Rather than having traditional decks, the vessel will have buildings, including a replica of Monaco’s famed Hotel de Paris.
Upper and lower living areas will be connected via a grand atrium. Seven guest suites, a library, and cinema will be situated in the lower level.   The owner's suite, a three-story, 4,800 square-foot area, and an entertainment salon will make up the upper level.
“It is basically a floating city,” according to company director Rob McPherson. “The design theme called for a unique yacht that reflected the style and sophistication of the principality.”

Benetti Yachts
– The Story

In the international luxury auto industry, one country is synonymous with trendsetting fashion and style:  Italy.  Ferrari…Maserati…Lamborghini…  The mere mention of these names evokes images of automobiles designed with sleek exteriors and sophisticated interiors.

The same Italian tradition of excellence and sophistication rings true in the world of yachting: Benetti Yachts. 

The Benetti Shipyard is one of the oldest yacht building yards in the world. Founded by Lorenzo Benetti in 1873 the was directed after his death by his sons Gino and Emilio.  They renamed the yard Fratelli Benetti and soon gained recognition outside the waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

In the early 1980’s Azimut SpA took over the yard’s management under the name, Azimut Benetti Group.  For the past six years, Benetti Yachts has been the largest shipyard in the world in terms of production.

Today, Benetti builds elegant, stylistic yachts from three shipyards in Italy –  Viareggio, Fano and Leghorn.  Composite motor yachts are offered from 93? to 164? while fully custom steel and aluminum motor yachts start at 47 meters.

There have been dozens of high-quality Benetti yachts produced over the years and accordingly there are a large number of Benetti yacht charter vessels available for hire.

Lights Out: Underwater Lights Let Luxury Yacht Charter Vessels Glow

Posted on

First the incandescent light bulb, then CFLs, and now LED lighting.  With homes, cars, and businesses on the path to energy conservation, we knew it wouldn't be long before the yachting industry was in step with the mainstream.  And with the flair that defines today's modern vessels, the yacht industry has put its signature stamp of style on the use of colored ambient lighting – underwater lights.  Green yachting, James Bond gadget style.
