Want to experience a Caribbean yacht charter like a celebrity? Then look no further than the exclusive island of Saint Barthélemy, better known as St Barts.
Why is St Barts so popular? It is always sunny with very little rain. The tiny island has become famous for celebrity sightings. In specific, especially during the year-end holidays. This is where all-night New Year’s Eve yacht hops and parties capture the attention of the global newswires.
A playground for billionaire superyacht owners and pop culture icons, the scene in St Barts between Christmas and New Years is unlike anywhere else in the world. From Mariah Carey and Sean “P Diddy” Combs, to Beyonce , Jay Z and Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore. All have spent time lounging on the sundeck of a multi-million dollar luxury mega yacht charter vessel dockside in the island’s Gustavia marina.
So just where is St Barts, the island paradise dubbed, “Hollywood South?”
The island of St. Barts is popular. Specifically, where is it located? St. Barts is a tiny island situated in the French West Indies. Located 17°55’ north and 62°50’ west, just below the Tropic of Cancer, and north of the chain of the Lesser Antilles. Puerto Rico is 240 km (about 160 miles) to the west.
St. Barts lies 35 km southeast of Saint Martin, separated by the Saint-Barthélemy Channel. It lies northeast of Saba and St Eustatius, and north of St Kitts. Some small satellite islets belong to St. Barts including Île Chevreau, Île Frégate, Île Toc Vers, and Île Tortue. A much bigger islet, Île Fourchue, lies to the north of the island, in the Saint-Barthélemy Channel. Other nearby islets include Coco, the Roques (or little Turtle rocks), and Sugarloaf.
Seven thousand kilometers separate St Barts from Paris, but it is just 2500 from New York (about a 4 hour flight).

Sardinia has been on everyone’s radar for the past few weeks. First, we heard how Steven Spielberg, with Gwyneth Paltrow in tow, ran afoul of the local authorities as the tender to his superyacht, motoryacht SEVEN SEAS cruised too close to island beachgoers.
Then, we reported on the Perini Navi yacht charter fleet preparing for early September’s sailing regatta against the beautiful backdrop of Porto Cervo, Sardinia.
So exactly where is Sardinia and what is the allure that draws so many sailors and visitors?
Sardinia is Italy’s second-largest island as well as the second-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. It is famous for its beautiful beaches and fascinating history. The nearest land masses are (clockwise from north) the French island of Corsica, the Spanish Balearic Islands, and the Italian Peninsula, Sicily, and Tunisia.
For Atlas lovers, the island of Sardinia is situated between 38° 51′ and 41° 15′ latitude north and 8° 8′ and 9° 50′ east longitude. To the west of Sardinia is the Balearic Sea; to Sardinia’s east is the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Over many centuries the island has survived countless invasions by the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, and Arabs. Local festivals on the island still reflect the long-lasting impact of those cultures.
Numerous castles, villages, temples and tombs cover the countryside, and with its perfect summer weather, tourists arrive in droves, some via Mediterranean yacht charter vessels, but many more via ferry service from the Italian mainland. In conclusion, where is Sardinia? It is a beautiful superyacht charter destination in the Mediterranean. It is perfect for The Superyacht Experience(tm) by 1800yachtcharters.

The working vacation: one report estimates that 30% of employees do office work while on vacation.
Sure, you can call it an oxymoron, but in reality, many corporate executives mix business with pleasure when spending time away from the office.
Increasingly, the largest yachts available for luxury mega yacht charter are being designed with the business traveler in mind – whether it’s via a small desk to check emails, or a complete media room for meetings and conferences.
The most common design is an area adjacent to the master cabin, which can serve as both an office or a sitting room.
The least common, but starting to appear in more and more superyachts is the dedicated meeting center. Normally not part of the master suite, these dedicated media spaces are often on a separate deck, with room for conducting business and holding meetings or small conferences.
Whether formal or casual in design, most office spaces onboard yachts feature built-in internet connections, video screens, storage space, and most importantly – privacy.
Let’s look at some modern onboard office areas:
Motoryacht MI SUENO – the study is part of the owner’s suite and features comfort, privacy, and the latest in technology.
Motoryacht SIREN – situated forward on the yacht’s main deck is the master suite. Attached is a private office which can be converted into a nanny’s stateroom with a double Pullman berth.
Motoryacht TURQUOISE – connected to the owner’s cabin, the office seems small in comparison to other yachts. What makes the room with desk so charming is the upright piano.
Remember to always focus on wellness. Take a technology break on vacation. You owe it to yourself to rest, relax, and enjoy the fruits of your labors!

Recent reports in the Indian press indicate changes. Specifically, a new yachting culture has hit Indian shores. Globe-trotting Indians are starting to flaunt express cruisers and speedboats. These are the new symbols of wealth. In addition, families are renting large yachts for vacations together.
Malav Shroff of Mumbai-based Mahindra Ocean Group comments. “After you have luxury cars, upmarket living spaces, high-end accessories, and farmhouses, where would you spend your money? Yachts are becoming elements of aspiration for many.”
Anju Dutta, a sales broker for Marine Solutions says sports cruisers are hot picks. “We have sold 45 Sea Ray sports boats and cruisers in the last year…in places like Goa, Cochin, and Kolkata,” she says. Marine Solutions also gets demand for premium Italian models like the Ferretti 570 motor yacht. More commonly seen in the Mediterranean yacht charter market, such as the Ferretti motor yacht NUMBER OF COWES, interest in both buying and chartering mid-range Ferretti models in India is on the rise.
Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters has been monitoring the increased demand for yachts in India.
“Mumbai is the country’s yacht capital, says Sheeder. “The number of motoryachts in the city has increased form 100 to over 200 in the past three years. The city has over 700km of waterfront exposure and the Maharashtra government has plans to develop multiple marinas. This is truly an emerging yachting market.”
Many Indian-owned yachts are used exclusively by the owners. Further, others are now available for charter. Specifically, both in India and in ports around the world. Vijay Mallya owns the 95-meter motor yacht INDIAN EMPRESS. Sheeder and her company offer the yacht for hire. Her weekly rate is €600,000 plus expenses.
