As the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season draws to a close, a number of sleek, stylish, and modern sailing charter vessels are making their way from ports around the world – to take their positions in the islands for the upcoming Caribbean yacht charter season.
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 these mega yacht charter stalwarts:
203 foot sail yacht ATHOS
198 foot sail yacht KOKOMO
The Caribbean sailing yacht fleet will be in place from early December, 2013 through April, 2014. ===============

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.
Officially the winter charter season kicks off in December, as crews return from their own vacations, and the yachts re-emerge from the shipyards after their annual summer maintenance. Almost a secret, 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:
NAEJ – leading the value parade is sail catamaran NAEJ, a 49′ yacht with room for 7 guests. Built by Alliaura Marina in 2006, her all-inclusive weekly rate of $13,500 per week equates to just $275 per person per night.
SORANA – the 68′ motor yacht SORANA was built in 2006 and features accommodations for 6 guests. Her homeport is Saint Martin in the French West Indies, just a short cruise from St Barts, a favorite winter enclave for celebrities. Weekly rate is $20,000 plus all running expenses, such as food, bar and dockage.
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.
MAEVIE – built in 2009 by CNB Bordeaux, sail catamaran MAEVIE is one of the stars in the crewed catamaran charters market. The Lagoon 620 catamaran offers accommodations for 6 guests in 3 double cabins. Her weekly rate is $23,500 including all meals, and she is available in the British Virgin Islands (Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, Jost Van Dyke, and over fifty other smaller islands and cays).
