How to Pack for a Yacht Charter Vacation

Posted on

In just over three weeks, you’ll be leaving on a week-long Bahamian yacht charter vacation on a sleek, performance crewed sailing yacht.  You’ve already chosen your menu through your charter broker, and your crew is ready to welcome you aboard.

You have just one concern – what to pack?

Most importantly, remember that you need to pack in soft-sided luggage (duffel bag) since space is at a premium on sail boat charters.

Since you’ll be enjoying fun in the sun and a tropical environment, the most important essentials to bring are sunscreen, t-shirts, shorts, and a swimsuit.  Don’t forget a long t-shirt or light coverup to wear over your swimsuit, as you don’t want to get sunburned, yet you’ll want to wear your bathing suit constantly.

If you plan on going ashore to dine or to go out, bring summerweight clothing (pants, skirts, dresses, tops).  The Bahamas are very casual and tropical!  Some finer establishments require jackets for the men, so use common sense when planning your “dining out attire,” and don’t wear blue jeans.

Most charter guests are barefoot for the majority of their vacation time onboard, but if you choose to wear shoes, wear soft-soled shoes without black soles (that can scuff the deck) for above deck.

You don’t want to get sunburned on day 1 of your trip, then spend the rest of your vacation in pain or peeling.  Don’t forget a protective sun hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, oversized beach towel (not supplied by most yachts), and anything that you like to wear or have with you when spending time on the beach.  If you DO get sunburned, you’ll want to have aloe or burn cream with you (it’s expensive in the islands, and some primitive islands don’t not sell it at all) for protection.

For leaving a gratuity for the crew at the end of your charter, most charter guests bring an envelope to put on the Captain’s navigation station upon disembarking. (Customary gratuity for the crew is 10-15% of your yacht charter fee)

Sail boat charters in the Bahamas are relaxing, casual, and stress-free.  (Remember, STRESSED is DESSERTS spelled backwards….so since you are enjoying the total opposite of “stress” on this vacation, enjoy all of the gourmet desserts that you can!)

Bottom line – do not worry about what you pack for your vacation.  Rule of thumb is that you only use half of what you pack, anyway, so you’ll surely have enough with you.  Soft-sided luggage is the key to convenient storage on Bahama yacht charters. If there is anything else that you need on your trip, you can surely get it during your charter.

Luxury Yacht Charter: Monokinis Set Trend for Summer Luxury Yachting Swimwear

Posted on

It seems each spring, one of our most popular blog topics is the year’s trends in swimwear.

So, for our readers hoping to learn about the newest Feadship yacht charter vessel to launch, you’ll need to wait a few days while we help the ladies get a jump on this summer’s hottest swimsuit fashions.  
Editor’s note – the trend toward one-piece swimsuits that we saw in 2012 is continuing to grow as stylish celebrities, from full-figured girls like  Beyonce to the ultra-slim Taylor Swift, are rocking one-piece bathing suits known as “maillots.”  With so many A-listers going with one-piece suits, department stores and boutiques are stocking more monokinis and fewer bikinis.  The New York Post reports one-piece swimsuit sales are up around 20 percent in local New York shops.
In a salute to the maillot trend, here are our 2013 seasonal favorites:
NORMA KAMALI Vogue Lycra Collection (from $155 at Sacks Fifth Avenue)
We’ve grown accustomed to seeing photos of Beyonce onboard Caribbean yacht charter vessels wearing casual daywear; but you can’t stay onboard all day, especially when the warm waters of St Barts are calling.  Here’s Beyonce in a stylish Norma Kamali one piece:

The lingerie company brings us monokinis that play it cool – not too bare and not too spare. The sequin one-piece lets you take the plunge in this daring little black suit. Shimmery sequins add dazzle to the curve-loving silhouette. Designed in luxe Italian fabric for a silky-soft feel. From the exclusive Very Sexy collection of glamorous swimwear by Victoria’s Secret – perfect for statement-making style in St Tropez during a Mediterranean yacht charter holiday this summer.
