The 28 meter sailing yacht WHIRLWIND has joined the growing list of sailboats heading to the Caribbean for the winter and spring seasons, and is offering reduced rates to entice vacationers.
Currently accepting reservations for Christmas and New Years, sailing yacht WHIRLWIND is the ultimate Virgin Islands yacht charter sailboat for family of 6 to 8, with generous accommodations available in 3 guest staterooms.
The sailing yacht offers three double cabins. Two cabins have a Pullman berth. Thus, the yacht can accommodate 6 adults + max 2 kids. One double cabin is located forward port side. Two identical cabins exist aft at either side of upper saloon stairway. Each cabin has its own en-suite bathroom and shower.
There are many onboard amenities. For instance, a Crestron–controlled multi-media entertainment system and a PlayStation game station for the kids. In addition, iPod docking stations throughout the yacht.
Launched in 1988 by the fabled Holland Jachtbouw shipyard, the yacht features the classic styling of interior designer Andrew Winch who oversaw a major interior refit this year (2011).
The yacht is available for the year-end holidays at a rate of € 32,760 per week. At the conclusion of the holidays, there are changes. Special winter and spring rates will then take effect. The price drops to €19,950 per week (regular winter/spring rate is € 26,600 per week). All rates are plus expenses.

This gorgeous vessel looks forward to a strong Mediterranean yacht charter season. The 30 meter sail yacht NOSTROMO cruises into 2012. She offers highly-competitive, reduced rental rates.
Beginning with the upcoming summer high season (July and August), rates have been slashed by 23% – from €45,000 per week to an attractive €35,000 per week. Rates are plus expenses.
Nostromo is a sleek, modern 2009 sloop. Design by Dubois Yachts and build by British superyacht builder Pendennis. Sail yacht NOSTROMO quickly became a popular sailing yacht in France and Italy upon launch. She then crossed the Atlantic for service as a Caribbean yacht charter vessel.
Pendennis yacht NOSTROMO boasts a beautiful interior, designed by Redman Whitely Dixon. There are four convertible cabins. In specific, they convert to modern double cabins. In addition, there is 1 single cabin with a bath.
Available in the Eastern Mediterranean, her experienced crew is keen to charter. With attractive new rates, expect prime summer dates to be booked quickly.
Similar yachts available this summer in the Eastern Mediterranean include the 43 meter sail yacht CLEAR EYES, 38 meter gulet yacht ESMA SULTAN, 34 meter sail yacht ANNAGINE, and the 32 meter crewed catamaran charters superstar sail yacht IPHARRA.

Word comes from sail yacht VERTIGO. The yacht will accept charters in some exotic areas. Specifically, Patagonia and Antarctica yacht charter vacations, starting February 2016. Rates are set at Euro 295,000 per week plus running expenses for maximum 12 guests.
Monaco yacht charter season is complete, therefore the luxury sailing yacht enjoyed the month of October in Singapore for maintenance work. Immediately prior to her journey to the southern hemisphere in November.
She is built by Alloy Yachts and designed by Philippe Briand. The 67 meter yacht VERTIGO is the largest sailing yacht built in the southern hemisphere.
Vertigo carries and affords multiple features and amenities. For instance, loft-style interiors, custom-designed by Christian Liaigre and an oversized Jacuzzi hot tub with retractable sunpads. In addition, there are bimini covers, and glass screens on the air-conditioned deck. Additionally, she has a midarette gymnasium with direct sea access and an open-air cinema screen. Ready for some fun? Watertoys include 4 tenders, and importantly, an 8 meter Limo tender with removable roof. Not to be outdone, sailing dinghies, kayaks, paddleboards, scuba equipment, inflatables, and towable toys join the fun.
We find the idea of a Patagonia yacht charter immensely intriguing. It is a sparsely populated area. Specifically located at the southern tip South America. The western coastline belongs to Chile, and the eastern side is part of Argentina. The opportunities for exploration and adventure are numerous, as this region comprises the southernmost portion of the Andes mountains. Just east of the mountains, there is great bio-diversity with deserts, steppes, and grasslands. The western coast of Patagonia borders the Pacific ocean, and the eastern coast borders the Atlantic ocean.

While crewed sail boat charters and bareboat charter vacations normally last 5 to 7 nights, not everyone has the time for a multi-night term luxury yacht charter. In this economy, saving up for a special bareboat charter or luxury yacht charter holiday might mean postponing until 2010.
Now for the good news – sailboat charters can be as short as one day and are the perfect compliment to a land-based Caribbean island vacation.
Let’s take a look at a single-day luxury yacht charter escape in the British Virgin Islands (also known as the BVI or BVI’s).
There are four major inhabited islands in the BVI, as well as dozens of (nearly 60) smaller islands, cays, and rocks scattered throughout the archipelago. Of course, the fun way to see these sights is by boat on a luxury sailing charter.
You can rent a small Caribbean yacht charter sailboat or a fast powerboat for the day in Road Town, Nanny Cay, West End, or several other locations. Some experience driving a powerboat or basic chart-reading skills are important to ensure you have a pleasurable day.
A great trip could start from Road Town, Tortola and head south across the Sir Francis Drake Channel to Peter Island. You can tie up to the dock in Sprat Bay, or anchor off the beach in Deadman’s Bay and swim ashore (remember to wear your water socks). Visitors are welcome in the public areas, the boutique, and the beach grill.
From Peter Island, it’s a short boat ride to Norman Island. This is author Robert Louis Stevenson’s legendary Treasure Island, and the source of countless tales of pirates and buried chests of gold. Today, the island is uninhabited except for a small restaurant on the beach in the Bight. Anchored in the bay is the old ship, William Thornton, affectionately known by bareboat charter lovers and the locals as the “Willy T,” a trading vessel converted to a bar and restaurant. It’s a great stop for a little “pirate” ambiance. Be warned – on holiday weekends, the Willy T is not appropriate for kids as it takes on a bawdy “adults only” atmosphere.
Just outside the bay are the Caves. These are more like grottoes and are a true snorkeler’s delight. You can tie up your boat to one of the National Park moorings and swim in. Don’t be surprised if a school of tropical fish swim alongside you, looking for a handout. The locals ask that you resist the temptation to feed the little critters, however. Human food is not healthy for the fish and may do them great harm in the long run.
After snorkeling at the Caves, it is a short boat ride to The Indians. These rock outcroppings are the size of houses and full of nesting seabirds in the summer. The waters around the rocks are teeming with fish of every shape and color. One local describes a swim here as a magical experience: “Floating among the fish, corals and sea fans will make you feel like Peter Pan flying through an enchanted forest.”
If the sun is still high in the sky, and you still feel fresh for more adventure, zip over to Salt Island. You can tie up to the dock and walk around the abandoned houses to the salt pond where workers harvest and sell sea salt. If you still have any get-up-and-go in your tank, hop back on your boat and cruise around the corner to the wreck of the HMS Rhone, the BVI’s first underwater park. Snorkel over the wreck and try to imagine what it looked like before it sank in 1867!
By now, you realize you are on “island time.” There’s little reason to hurry back to Tortola, unless you have an early dinner reservation at your hotel or resort. Assuming you are in the island groove, we suggest a cruise east to Cooper Island. Accessible only by boat, this island has a few rental homes and a tiny resort that’s looks like a vacation postcard from the water – palm trees and long, white sand beach. By now, you must be hungry from a morning/afternoon of exploring. Drop in a local restaurant for a late lunch. With a full belly and a big smile, it’s just a short sail or cruise back to Tortola.
There are many other itineraries for a day trip by boat. Your hotel concierge can recommend the best local boat rental operators and give you some ideas as to where to go and what to see there. You can go fast on a powerboat or slower on a sailboat – the choice is yours. Either way, a day boat trip around the British Virgin Islands will be the highlight of your land-based island holiday!

We’ve all seen the images. They include a silhouette of a sailing yacht. Also nearby is a secluded beach. The sun is setting in the background of all photos. Massive superyachts are docked side-by-side in a marina along the Côte d’Azur. Imagine you and your family inserted in the yachting images. Enjoy la belle vie.
Is it realistic to think you can afford a holiday at sea on a private yacht?
To answer that question, let’s start with understanding exactly what a yacht charter is all about.
You’ve stayed at a resort. You have enjoyed the premise of a yachting vacation on a crewed yacht. From accommodations, to meals, activities and amenities, you have it all. Everything you and your family need are available in one location. The biggest difference is next. Your location “moves” when you charter a yacht!
Take, for example, a Virgin Islands yacht charter vessel. Other travelers stay ashore and see the same view from their hotel window. Each day you can wake up and experience a new location. Your yacht cruises from island to island. Forget a virtual online slideshow. This is the real deal!
While onboard, you’ll be pampered by a crew of trained professionals – from a captain to navigate, to a host/hostess to serve you, and a chef to prepare your meals. The actual number of crew depends on the size of the yacht you charter and the level of service you request.
Just like the resort, the yacht offers accommodations, areas to relax and socialize, and a wide variety of recreational toys to enjoy – like snorkel gear, kayaks, and paddleboards. The larger yachts offer a wider variety of toys and amenities, including wave runners, cinema rooms, exercise equipment – even ondeck Jacuzzi spas.
There is one more distinguishing difference when compared to a resort. It is completely private. Only you, your family/friends, and professional crew are onboard.
Again, the comparison to seaside resorts best illustrates the locations available for enjoying a yachting holiday – if it’s on the ocean, chances are there are yachts in the area available for hire!
Here’s a partial list of the most popular destinations for chartering a crewed yacht:
If you guessed that we would once again go back and look at a resort for the answer – you’re right!
The price options for enjoying a crewed yacht directly compare to the prices of staying at a resort. Basic resorts in popular destinations can be very affordable for a family vacation, and so too can be the cost of a private yacht charter. Conversely, ultra exclusive resorts in posh settings charge premium rates – as do the most luxurious private yachts.
To put this into realistic perspective, here’s a sample of yachts and their prices:
The owners of charter yachts rely on a network of professional yacht charter brokers. Importantly, as a go-between. In specific, for owners and yacht charter seekers.

Fingers are crossed that the Mediterranean yacht charter fleet will soon welcome yacht Salperton IV to the family. Earlier incarnations of Salperton have spent years delivering mega yacht charter holidays to customers around the world. Two of the earlier vessels are still available for sail boat charters under the current names of Northern Spirit (37 meters) and Drumbeat (53 meters).

I look forward to receiving your enquiries.
Nicolas knows many of our clients prefer motoryachts for the luxury yacht charter vacations. We are excited to promote high-quality sailing yachts whenever the chance arises. Sail yacht ALLURES is 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 100 feet, she is a superyacht. Her overall design reflects this pedigree. Allures’ chic Italian interior is brimming with beautiful wood and leather furnishings. She accommodates eight guests in four impressive staterooms. Furthermore, every stateroom has 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). In addition, this unique flexible layout comfortably accommodate charter parties of families, friends and/or couples.
First, she is a performance sailing catamaran with an experienced and friendly crew. Second, Allures has sleek lines, the latest sailing equipment, and Italian interiors with wood and leather. Third, as a catamaran, she has access to very shallow anchorages. Fourth, she is the ultimate in safety and performance. In addition, she features 2 convertible staterooms. Lastly, multiple water toys keep it fun!
For the summer 2017 cruising season, the yacht is offered at different rates. For instance, €60,000 per week plus running expenses for high (July/August), and €50,000 per week for low (June/September) season
