“We live in the USA. I’ve been told crewed catamaran charters are the best way to enjoy a yachting vacation in the Virgin Islands. Do you have any suggestions as to the most convenient, best airports? Jenny S.“
Hi Jenny. We are thrilled to hear about your plans – a travel writer once described a Caribbean sailing yacht charter as, “One of the top five vacations in the world!”
If you wish to explore the US Virgin Islands (USVI), then the Cyril E. King International Airport (airport code: STT), in St.Thomas is your best bet.

With the demand for luxury sailing charter catamarans on the rise, the team at Lagoon recently introduced the all-new 2012 Lagoon 620 catamaran at the Cannes Boat Show. Designed by the architects Van Peteghem and Lauriot Prévost (VPLP), the Lagoon 620 is an innovative solution to the needs of today’s discerning Caribbean yacht charter client. The yacht seamlessly blends strength, comfort, and performance in a charter-friendly cabin layout .
The 2012 version of the Lagoon 620, features luxurious and comfortable interiors by Nauta. In the dining room, the settees have been redesigned, as well as the ceiling, enabling more indirect lighting. On the starboard side, the master cabin has also been modified, with a washroom now placed aft on either side of the cockpit access stairs. This modification creates more storage space in the bedroom fro the charterer’s luggage. The forward starboard cabin, can now be called a true V.I.P. suite, with additional volume created by the repositioning of the master cabin’s washroom.
The Lagoon 620 catamaran will be built in 4, 5 and 6 cabin versions, all featuring Nauta interior layout packages and incorporating wood finish, upholstery, inner liners, and more…
Exceptional living space, both above and below deck will continue to define Lagoon catamarans for years to come as the sophisticated choice for multi hull yacht vacations.
Catamaran multihull sailboats are also available for bareboat vacations (yachts without crew). 1-800 Yacht Charters offers bareboat charter, also.

An award-winning chef and his catamaran have introduced a special, reduced rate for early spring in the Caribbean.
The spectacular luxury sailboat catamaran WORLD’S END has slashed her price, from $36500/wk to $24000/wk, plus all expenses. The special applies to charters commencing in either February or March, 2012.
At 20 meters, the Fountaine Pajot Galathea 65 model catamaran WORLD’S END is the largest cruising vessel ever built by this manufacturer. She marks a new flagship for sail boat charters in the Caribbean.
Readers may recall our December 17 profile of chef Renee Kappetein as he bested over a dozen talented luxury yacht charter chefs in the 50th annual Antigua Charter Yacht Show culinary competition. Renee, the live-aboard chef on the Fountaine Pajot Galathea 65 catamaran took first prize in the division for yachts under 100 feet.
An outstanding creation from architects Berret Racoupeau and Coste Design, the Fountaine Pajot catamaran sail boat WORLD’S END has been carefully designed with all of the safety, performance, and comfort elements to satisfy the most discerning guests. Safe and exhilarating sailing performance is generated from its mastered displacement, powerful sail plan and expanded waterline length.
The generous cockpit of the Galathea 65 is fully protected from the elements and features a deck lounge and sun-bridge for relaxing. The extraordinarily spacious interior features a panoramic saloon, dining room and gourmet galley.
The Master Cabin sets new standards in decadence and style with a study area, lounge and large bathroom with dual vanity sinks. Each guest cabin features an ensuite bathroom, king size beds, large portholes and a style that rivals the world’s top luxury hotels.
The yacht also includes an office/library, dressing rooms and laundry.

Sail yacht ALLURES
30m catamaran – one of the largest and fastest, all-carbon cats in the world
Accommodates 8 guests in 4 cabins
Available for South of France or Monaco yacht charter
€50,000/wk (June/Sept) and €60,000/wk (July/Aug).
We had just secured a private luxury yacht charter reservation on the 37m motor yacht ELENA NUEVE this week – a yacht managed by Nicolas Fry at Camper & Nicholsons International. No sooner had we turned in the charter contract, then Nicolas sent us an email touting a big, beautiful catamaran in his fleet – the sailing yacht ALLURES. I guess Nicolas hopes we’ll put more emphasis on booking SAILING yachts in the Med!
ALLURES is getting ready for a successful charter season in the West Med. Based in the South of France, she is still available in April, May, June and September 2017.
Luxurious charter yacht with impressive deck space and comfort, ALLURES is one of the largest and fastest, all carbon-sail catamaran in the world. She provides a high level of comfort and safety with access to shallow waters.
-24 June to 1 July, Naples/Catania,
-9 to 16 July, Naples/Palermo,
-20 July to 14 August, Bonifacio/Bonifacio,
-16 to 30 August, Bonifacio/Saint-Tropez.
I look forward to receiving your enquiries.
Nicolas knows many of our clients prefer motoryachts for the luxury yacht charter vacations, but we are certainly excited to promote high-quality sailing yachts whenever the chance arises. Sail yacht ALLURES is certainly at the top end of sailing yachts in the charter market. Built by Composite Works in France, this is a performance yacht that really, “gets up and goes” when the wind is blowing. If you’re wondering if that means a bumpy ride – put your worries to bed. Catamarans have two hulls which gives them an enormous beam (width). The wider the yacht the more stable the vessel, especially when at anchor.
Of course, at 100ft, this is indeed a superyacht, and her overall design reflects this pedigree. Her chic Italian interior is brimming with beautiful wood and leather furnishings. She accommodates eight guests in four impressive staterooms. Every stateroom with a direct view to the sea.
Our favorite onboard features are the two convertible staterooms. These double cabins can easily become twins (each with single berths). This unique (and oh-so-flexible) layout ensures the yacht can comfortably accommodate charter parties of families, friends and/or couples.
For the summer 2017 cruising season, the yacht is offered at €60,000/wk plus running expenses – for high (July/August) and €50,000/wk for low (June/September) season
