Luxury Sailing Yacht Builder In A Class Of Its Own

Posted on

Was it really ten months ago that nearly two dozen of the largest luxury sailing charter vessels gathered in Porto Cervo, Sardinia for one of the most popular yachting events in the Mediterranean, the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta?

This past week, 28 superyacht vessels converged at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda base in Virgin Gorda for the third “Caribbean” edition of the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta, sponsored by luxury Italian brand Loro Piana.

If there is one yacht builder that stands out among all others at these events, it has to be Perini Navi.  Since the early eighties, Perini Navi has built luxury sailing charter vessels in a class of their own. To date, the company has built 52 yachts, measuring up to 88 meters in length.

Flagship of the fleet is the Perini Navi yacht MALTESE FALCON, delivered in 2006. A masterpiece of technology and design, the 88 meter yacht MALTESE FALCON is without equal.  At the 2013 Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta, Perini Navi will be represented by 38m cruiser/racer sail yacht P2, as well as the sleek and stylish 54m yacht PARSIFAL III

Other Perini Navi yacht charter vessels often available in the Caribbean include 56 meter yacht SALUTE, and the 50 meter yacht BARACUDA.

Saint Lucia Yacht Charter – Packing Tips

Posted on

“My family is planning a Caribbean yacht charter vacation on a crewed sailboat. We’re going to start in St. Lucia and are curious how we should pack, based on the weather.  Thanks,   Terry K.” 

Aerial photograph of a cove on the island of St. Lucia in the Caribbean. The cove has about 5 boats anchored there.

Hi Terry,

Thank you for your question.

While most customers focus on St Thomas yacht rentals in the Virgin Islands, we are excited to hear that you and your family are headed further south, to enjoy a Windward Islands yacht charter.  The scenery is quite different from that in the Virgin Islands — there are tall mountains, waterfalls, and rainforests – it’s truly a subtropical wonderland!

We checked with the crew of sail yacht CERULEAN, a crewed catamaran yacht charter vessel that spends the winter in the Windward Islands (also known as The Grenadines).   Here are their suggestions for you: 

  • Lightweight clothing is suitable as the climate is tropical. Perhaps a pullover for the evening.
  • When venturing ashore for the evening, smart casual is widely acceptable in the Grenadines.
  • Bring along your favorite hat. Polarized sunglasses are a must! 
  • Water tolerant shoes or flip flops that are comfortable, easily worn, and easily removed are best.
  • A lightweight UV skin guard for snorkeling is of comfort to yourself.
No need to pack toiletries since items such as shampoo, toothpaste, shaving cream and sunblock.  Those items are readily available on almost every charter vessel in the Caribbean.
Have a great trip, and don’t forget to take lots of pictures!
