November is the month many yachts make the “Milk Run,” sailing across the Atlantic Ocean from Europe to the Caribbean.As in years past, the Virgin Island yacht charter fleet is expected to dominate the market in terms of the number of available yachts for hire, especially in the category of crewed catamaran charters.  Yachts such as Lagoon 620 catamaran yacht



THE CURE, and Sunreef 62 catamaran, TAHAA II are already in position to accept reservations (how does a Welcome to 2014 yacht charter vacation sound???).While the St. Thomas yacht charter market in the USVI, and the Tortola yacht charter market in the BVI are quite sizeble in terms of small to mid-size yachts, a large contingent of sail superyachts will choose the deeper water of the Leeward Islands for their winter base.  The St Martin yacht charter fleet and the St Barts fleets are expected to include the following mega yacht charter stalwarts.  For instance, 203 foot sail yacht ATHOS – 198 foot sail yacht KOKOMO – and 183 foot Perini Navi yacht PANTHALASSA


The Caribbean sailing yacht fleet will be in place from early December, 2013 through April, 2014.

Posted on

Another travel holiday is often overlooked as people plan year-end Caribbean yacht charter vacations.  An island escape for the Thanksgiving holidays is a great way to enjoy great weather and uncrowded anchorages.



The winter charter season kicks off in December.  Crews return from their own vacations at year-end.  Yachts re-emerge from the shipyards after annual summer maintenance.  Few charterers realize that 80% of the Caribbean fleet is already in place and ready to go by Thanksgiving!



Let’s look at a handful of Caribbean-based yachts available in late November:

First, NAEJ.  Sail catamaran 2006 NAEJ leads the value parade. She is a 49 foot yacht with room for 7 guests.  Her builder is Alliaura Marina.  She has an all-inclusive weekly rate of $13,500 per week.  This rate equates to just $275 per person per night.

MOTU – the 61′ Privilège 615 catamaran MOTU was built in 2006 and features 4 double cabins for 8 passengers.  She returns from a summer of Bahama yacht charters in time to take a Thanksgiving booking from her winter base in Pointe-à-Pitre on the island of Guadeloupe.  Weekly rate is $23,000 – ALL-INCLUSIVE
