Sea, Sun, and Superyachts: The Best of the 2024 Bahamas Boat Show

The 2024 Bahamas Boat Show was held January 25 to 28 in Nassau and showcased 80+ sensational charter vessels over four marinas. Luxury Charter Group attended this year’s show and inspected the sensational charter yachts on show, meeting with crew and management to understand in-depth each vessel’s characteristics and special features, or in the case of the boats we had seen before, the upgrades and improvements.

The Bahamas is a perennially popular charter region, and one we are familiar with from personal experience. LCG brokers have enjoyed charters and taken various itineraries throughout the Bahamas and Caribbean and are well versed on the highlights as well as the “hidden gems” known only to locals and seasoned charter skippers.

At the 2024 Bahamas Boat Show, these were the luxury charter yachts that we believe deserve special mention.
