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.

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.

“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.”
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:
