We’ve all done it. You race off of a flight to get to the baggage claim area and stake out a spot near the carousel door. Your heart rate climbs as you wait…and wait…and wait for your luggage to pop out through the conveyor belt doors and onto the carousel.
Wasn’t the whole point of taking a Caribbean yacht charter vacation was to leave the stress of the real world behind? Yet here you are, hours from boarding your crewed catamaran charter vessel in the Virgin Islands, and your eyes are glued to the carousel at Cyril E. King airport in St. Thomas. You watch the bags of other passengers go by, with your bag nowhere in sight.
You think, “Did my luggage make it? Is it still in good shape? Did someone grab my bags???”
Fortunately, the Easy2Pick Wireless Luggage Finder Systemand theL.E.D. IT BE Easy2Pick Luggage Finder can make it easy and stress-free to quickly locate your bags upon arrival.

IT BE Easy2Pick Luggage Finder, on the other hand, uses 4 LED lights that flash only after your luggage has arrived.

We looked at the picture Dave had snapped, and he was right – it seems yacht owners
wanting to give their guests the option to indulge in off-board relaxation
can now do so by offering use of a portable sea cabana.
Designed by the USA-based ParrLuxe company, the cabana is intended as a solution to the problem of guests on large charter yachts having to walk up several levels to sunbathe, and then down the same levels to access a swim platform for a dip in the sea.
With room for 15 to 20 people, the cabana inflates in 15 minutes from a small air compressor, and comes complete with wraparound seating, a stainless steel swim ladder with teak steps, and a rigid carbon-fiber canopy frame.
ParrLuxe also offers a cabana with a natural swimming-pool option – a net-covered hole in the floor of the cabana lets in sea water, while keeping out jellyfish.
As our reader Dave pointed out, the cabana can also be tethered behind a boat, making it
ideal for children to use.
The “Sea Cabana” is available in black, white, and turquoise, and is priced at $35,000.

Every year, numerous travel magazines and websites put together lists of the top 10 beaches in the world. Our charter department decided to chime in on the never-ending debate about the best beaches, but we wanted to add a little twist.Since the vast majority of yachting vacations, bareboat yacht charters, crewed catamaran charters, etc. take place in the Caribbean, we decided to focus on the very best beaches found in the balmyCaribbean– sandy destinations that you can reach BY BOAT.
Of course, this will probably set off a series of text messages and emails, debating the merits of the Caribbean beaches, as compared to the South Pacific and elsewhere. Good – that’s the way we like it!!! Let us here from you if we’ve missed a great beach in the Caribbean…or elsewhere.
Our top three beaches:
SIP SIP BEACH (Harbour Island, Eleuthera, Bahamas) – the sand is pink, not white. Very few residents and even fewer tourists. No big buildings or hotels to block your views. Amazing. On top of that, where else can you sit on a beach towel and have wild horses meander by???
FLAMENCO BEACH(Culebra, Spanish Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico) – so many boaters plan Virgin Islands yacht charters yet never go beyond the confines of the USVI and the BVI. The nearby Spanish Virgin Islands are a hidden gem with few visitors on weekdays (but boaters from the mainland of Puerto Rico do invade on the weekends).. In a nearly waveless, sheltered cove, Flamenco Beach is long, wide, and surrounded by greenery. Fish swim right up to the edge of the water, which is waist deep for quite a stretch and has at least 20 yards of crystal clear visibility underwater.
JAMESBY BEACH (Jamesby Island, Tobago Cays, Grenadines) – the Tobago Cays are an archipelago of five tiny, uninhabited islands. Protected by a horseshoe reef, the eponymous-named beach is small but visually breathtaking. By the way, there is only one way to get there – by boat… 😉
As a kid, I used to love going to the beach on Key Biscayne in Miami. The concession stand had the best snow-cones in town, and the long, paved path along the edge of the beach was the perfect place to ride my bicycle.
Sometimes my dad would rent a public cabana for the day, where we could change into our bathing suits, sit in the shade to escape the sun, or draw the curtains to take a nap – away from the crowds on the beach.
The concept (and benefits) of a cabana has finally made its way into the world of yachting, as more and more of the world’s largest yachtsnow feature “Beach Clubs” – small, private decks that fold out or pop open when the yacht is at anchor.
Located along the sides or aft areas of many new yachts, these beach clubs offer quiet spaces where charter guests can relax, away from the main entertainment spaces of the yacht. Most feature large oversized chairs, couches, and massage tables, as well as entertainment options such as flat-panel televisions and stereos linked to the yacht’s central entertainment system.
Some of the winter Caribbean yacht charter vessels featuring beach clubs include motor yacht SYCARA V, motor yacht IMAGINE, and motor yacht HARBOUR ISLAND.
In an ever-hectic world, expect to see more and more yachts adding private areas for personal retreat and relaxation onboard.
