Best Airport for Caribbean Catamaran Yacht Charter

Posted on

QUESTION

“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.

 

ANSWER

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.

ANSWER CONTINUES

Note:  There is also an airport in St. Croix, the Henry E. Rohlsen International Airport, St. Croix (STX). However, very few catamaran and sailboat rental companies operate from St. Croix, as there are very few calm anchorage areas.
So who flies into STT (St. Thomas)?  As to major airlines flying from the United States to Saint Thomas, Delta has flights to Saint Thomas Cyril E King, American Airlines has flights to STT Cyril E King, and US Airways has flights to Saint Thomas Cyril E King International Airport.  You’ll find both direct flights as well as connecting flights through San Juan, Puerto Rico in the Spanish Virgin Islands.

NOW WHAT?

Now that you know HOW to get there, here are three crewed catamaran sailing yachts available for charter in the Virgin Islands.Sunreef 70 catamaran MUSE

Crewed Catamaran Sailboat Build Turns 30

Posted on

PARISIAN BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION — MERCI

The recent Paris boat show gave bareboat yacht charter lovers pause. Presenting the new Lagoon catamaran 39.  It is an even more important milestone.  In specific, the 30th birthday of Lagoon Catamarans.
The builder celebrated their shipbuilding birthday at the French show.  Show dates spanned December 7 to 15.

When Did Lagoon Cats First Appear?

The first Lagoon #catamaran model was delivered in 1987.  As a result, more than 3,000 Lagoon catamarans exist around the world.

The yacht is solid white, and it has stairs down the back of the boat. The photograph is clean and bright. The yacht is bright white.

Lagoon Catamaran for Caribbean Yacht Charter Vacation

DESIGN INNOVATIONS

For three decades, the company has been a leader in design innovation. For example, 

1997

Lagoon invents vertical windows for the Lagoon 410 catamaran, adding welcoming light and a feeling of more volume.

2004

No one had ever seen or heard of a flybridge on a sailing catamaran.  That is, until Lagoon installed one. Now, a decade later, all Lagoons 45’ and larger are equipped with a flybridge.

2006  

The first hybrid-powered cruising catamaran is introduced. Specifically, the Lagoon 420.

2009  

Welcome the Lagoon 620.   It is the benchmark for crewed catamaran charters.  Ask any charter broker their preferred vessels for a Virgin Islands yacht charter vacation.  They probably point to Lagoon 620 sail catamaran AVALON.  Also, luxury sailing catamaran CROCODILE DADDY

2013  

The new Lagoon 39 and 52 models, featuring innovation by VPLP naval architects, have the masts pushed back aft for comfort, performance, and easy handling. 

 

 

HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS

Happy 30th birthday, Lagoon!  Thank you for all that you’ve done for the catamaran charter industry — here’s to another 30 years.

Lagoon 620 Catamaran Yacht Charter

CATAMARANS IN DEMAND

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.  The Lagoon 620 is an innovative solution to the needs of today’s discerning Caribbean yacht charter client.  Professional design by the architects Van Peteghem and Lauriot Prévost (VPLP).  The  yacht seamlessly blends strength, comfort, and performance in a charter-friendly cabin layout.

 

LAGOON 620

The 2012 version of the Lagoon 620, features luxurious and comfortable interiors by Nauta.  Dining room settee redesign is lovely. In addition, the ceiling enables more indirect lighting.  The master cabin starboard side modifications are tremendous. The washroom is now aft on either side of the cockpit access stairs.  This modification creates more storage space in the bedroom for the charterer’s luggage.  The forward starboard cabin is a true V.I.P. suite.  Additional volume created by the repositioning of the master cabin’s washroom.

 

MULTIPLE VERSIONS

The Lagoon 620 catamaran has 4, 5 and 6 cabin versions.  All versions featuring Nauta interior layout packages. In addition, they incorporate multiple items. For instance, wood finish, upholstery, and inner liners.

WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT THEM?

They have exceptional living space, both above and below deck.  This defines Lagoon catamarans as the sophisticated choice for multi hull yacht vacations.

CREWED OR BAREBOAT?

Catamaran multihull sailboats are also available for bareboat vacations (yachts without crew).  1-800 Yacht Charters offers bareboat charter, also.

 

SIMILAR CATAMARANS FOR RENT

Several newer-model Lagoon catamarans are already in service and available for hire, including the Lagoon 560 sail catamaran BACCHUS and the Lagoon 450 sail catamaran OKEANOS
