Charter a Yacht in the Beautiful Caribbean

The Caribbean is a glittering yachting playground, where luxury yachts float between the jungle-covered peaks of sunken volcanoes, and thousands of sugar-white atolls are strung like jewels across a sapphire sea. With its breathtaking natural beauty supported by superyacht marinas, exclusive spa resorts and an abundance of boutique shopping, the Caribbean is one of the planet’s ultimate luxury destinations

Whether you want to live it up in champagne-and-caviar style in St Barts, cruise through a paradise archipelago in the fabulous Virgin Islands, discover the many dazzling treasures of Dutch and French St Maarten, or journey through the quiet, pristine beauty of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, a Caribbean yacht charter promises tropical adventure and barefoot luxury in equal measure.

The ultra-chic island of Saint Barthélemy is a byword for French-Caribbean glamour, with its celebrity sparkle drawing the superyacht fleet for elegant parties that light up the Caribbean night. However, the alluring appeal of St Barts lies as much in its many contrasts as in its fine dining and nightlife: the stunning, powder-sand beach reached by a jungle path, or the scruffy, soft-eyed donkey trotting down the street past the windows of flagship boutiques and bars full of beautiful people. A St Barts experience is one of long lazy beach days and perfect anchorages, gourmet food and stunning spas… and a little bit of Caribbean magic.
The British Virgin Islands are one of the most popular superyacht cruising grounds on earth, and little wonder. Not only do the BVIs offer lush rainforests, teeming coral reefs and idyllic white sand beaches, but their resorts, boutiques, marinas and restaurants are some of the finest to be found anywhere. One of the spectacular advantages of this sheltered archipelago is that the 60-plus islands are within a short distance of each other, making cruising effortless and endlessly beautiful. Whether you’re eating fresh-grilled lobster on the pink sands of Anegada, diving the shipwrecks of Wreck Alley, dancing to a reggae band at Willy T’s, or snorkelling through the immense granite boulder rock pools of Virgin Gorda, a BVIs yacht charter is pure exotic paradise. 

Part-French, part-former Dutch colony, Saint Maarten is a Caribbean island of exquisite beauty and vibrant culture. A yacht charterer visiting Saint Maarten might visit French Marigot, where decadent beach clubs and restaurants overlook the turquoise waters, and gorgeous old French buildings line the streets. The coastline of Saint Maarten is dotted with secluded anchorages and stunning beaches, and as you move to the Dutch side you’ll discover more still, with waving palms bending over long white sand beaches and luxury resorts and boutiques providing endless happy distractions to the discerning yacht charterer.
Further south, you’ll discover the staggering beauty of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, where colourful French-Caribbean villages sit under volcanic peaks, and deep green rainforest runs down to the turquoise sea. More quiet and undeveloped than the northern Caribbean archipelagos, St Vincent and the Grenadines provide a secluded escape with a real Caribbean feel, as well as the exclusive ‘desert islands’ of Bequia and Mustique. Dive the Tobago Cays, hike through jungle surrounded by tropical flowers, shop at local markets and French boutiques, or listen to Calypso music in a beach bar under the setting sun.

This list is a mere fraction of the Caribbean destinations you could visit on your yacht charter. The options are endless, and a happy lifetime could be spent cruising the sparkling Caribbean Sea.
