SPECIAL HOLIDAY RATE
One of the largest yachts available for hire has cut her Caribbean premium-season rate for Christmas week by €60,000.
The 72.5 meter Dunya Yachts motor yacht AXIOMA is currently open for Christmas week, preferably in the Windward islands of the Caribbean. To entice a reservation, the owner has lowered the rate from €550,000 per week to €490,000 per week – a savings of more than 10%.
Currently ranked #151 on the list of the world’s largest yachts, super yacht AXIOMA (ex yacht Red Square) accommodates 12 guests in a master suite, VIP suite, and four guest double cabins, two of which are convertible into twins.
The yacht boasts a beach house-style interior by the legendary designer Alberto Pinto (who sadly passed away before the yacht was launched in 2013). The interior “wow factor” is off the chain with unique features like an open mezzanine in the main salon, and a media lounge on the owner’s deck. Exterior amenities are just as amazing, especially the infinity swimming pool, and the large Jacuzzi with a swim-up bar, located on the bridge deck.
Like so many other yachts now focused on the wellness yacht charter concept, the yacht also boasts a full gym, massage room, and steam room…
This stunning superyacht is already reserved 27 Dec, 2016 – 3 Jan, 2017, from St Lucia to Canuan; thus, the owner would like to secure a charter immediately prior to this booking somewhere in the area of St Lucia.

At the end of the Caribbean yacht charter season, most megayacht vessels like Christensen Motor yacht PARTY GIRL 146 leave the confines of the island life behind, and begin the three-week migration “across the pond” (the Atlantic ocean). Once there, they prepare for the popular Mediterranean yacht charter season. Super yacht PARTYGIRL 146, however, is not like other luxury yacht charter vessels.
The owner of this 2008 Christensen motoryacht prefers the warmth and privacy found only in the Caribbean. While the other owners take their lavish toys to see and be seen in Monte Carlo, this 146′ megayacht nearly has the entire Caribbean to herself (and her fortunate few yacht charter customers).
Based in the warm waters of St. Lucia, this wonderful charter yacht and her crew are ready to share their rainforest island home with anyone intrigued by the slow-paced lifestyle of the Grenadine chain of the Caribbean.
Water-oriented travelers will love the toy inventory found aboard this 44.50 meter luxury megayacht. The list includes a 37′ Intrepid tender, two 18 foot tenders, a three-person waverunner, and towable toys such as a Banana and a kneeboard. For onshore activity, the yacht offers an assortment of beach games, along with volleyball, badminton, horseshoes, kites, and a football.
The onboard amenities are amazing – so impressive that the megayacht was selected as the 2008 “Best of the Best” by the luxury lifestyle magazine, Robb Report.
Super yacht PARTY GIRL 146 can accommodate 12 guests in 6 luxurious staterooms.
“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:

St. Lucia makes a move to bolster and support cruising in its waters. The government announced new, revised policies regarding yachting.
Policies are announced by the St Lucia Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation. They create rules to stimulate growth in St. Lucia’s yachting sector. New rules facilitate clearing in and out of the country. They also ease taxation and include many other benefits.
There are five changes. For instance,
Third, 100% waiver of import duty and consumption tax on boat safety equipment and watercraft activity equipment, which includes sport fishing, SCUBA diving, kite surfing and other water sports, subject to verification of the Bill of Quantities by the Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation for 5 years from date of cabinet conclusion

Fourth, 100% waiver of import duty and consumption tax on all equipment and materials imported or purchased locally for use in the establishment of infrastructure to service yachts over period of 5 years, subject to verification and approval of the Bill of Quantities by the Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation
Finally, the Government of Saint Lucia has waived the visa requirements for Russian and Australian nationals so that Russian and Australian nationals no longer require visas to enter Saint Lucia.
Jana Sheeder, President of SailAway Yacht Charters and 1-800 Yacht Charters applauds the new regulations. Says Sheeder,
“These changes will benefit everyone in the yachting industry, from owners and their crews, to charter guests and yacht service businesses. Most importantly, bolstering the yacht industry will have a positive economic impact on the residents of St. Lucia.”
Sheeder is especially excited at the prospect of easing visa restrictions for Russian travelers.
“Caribbean yacht charter vacations are extremely popular with Russian customers,” says Sheeder. “Any steps we can take to facilitate their ability to travel freely will encourage more Russians to visit the islands by boat.”
