What are the trends in Caribbean Charter
If you are planning a tropical getaway this year, the charter experts at Luxury Charter Group have compiled some of the current trends in luxury yachts, destinations and our esteemed guests’ preferences to guide you through this season's luxury charter in the Caribbean.
Cool Charter Cats
Large motoryachts and sailing yachts are still popular charter choices, but there is a noticeable increase in demand for power and sailing catamarans, prized for their liveable space and stability, plus their ability to access shallow waters, delivering charter guests as close as possible to remote beaches and islands.
Size Matters for the Multi-Generational Charter
Clients are seeking larger motoryachts, and with plenty of room for the whole family, the multi-generational charter yacht experience is popular. There's something for everyone, with alfresco entertaining with a view, the sky lounge and many places to relax, and for the active charter guests a plethora of water toys to enjoy.
Your luxury yacht charter is the time to really invest in your health and longevity. Dining onboard can be indulgent of fresh local cuisine and a variety of dishes to savour personalised to your own preferences. Chefs are accustomed to creating healthy variations of their specialties, including low-fat, gluten-free or catering to other allergy-specific diets.
For your complete well-being, many charter yachts boast the latest fitness equipment, some motor yachts even have a dedicated gym for your workout while enjoying serene sea views.
Be as accessible or inaccessible as you wish on charter. Connectivity is mostly expected these days, both for keeping in touch with business if necessary while escaping on vacation, and also for all the high-tech toys and entertainment we demand of our devices. Charter yachts now mostly have iPod docking stations and many have a dedicated office with all the tools and gadgets you might require.
Every superyacht worth its salt these days has a great selection of watertoys for active charter guests, from the humble kayak to the thrilling jetpack or Xboard. All yachts have tenders for jaunts to shore, angling or waterskiing, and stand up paddleboards are part of most yachts' arsenal of equipment. For extended family charters, nothing beats the inflatable tow toys, trampolines, slides and climbing walls.
Kite surfing is growing in popularity, particularly around the Grenadines, where spots such as Windward Bay on Mayreau, and Ashton Harbour at Union Island offer excellent wind conditions and pristine waters.
It's Easy Being Green
Considering the environment doesn't mean sacrificing luxury,many motoryachts incorporate the latest onboard technology such as solar power, ozone treatment of wastewater, recycling and compaction of rubbish, plus the latest generation of propulsion, all of which reduce the yachts' carbon hullprint.
The British Virgin Islands are still the number one charter destination in the Caribbean, but there is a loyal fleet of charter yacht guests keen to explore the Bahamas, St Maarten(St Martin) and the Grenadines are rising in popularity. When St Vincent's International Airport opens, this will bring even more charter yachts to the Grenadines as it will make it more accessible and easy for your flights.
The Perfect Charter To Suit You
A yacht charter is the ideal way for families and groups of friends to spend quality time together. Luxury Charter Group has hundreds of crewed charter yachts, sail and motor, to fit all budgets, levels of comfort, and preferences for activities and destinations, whether you're wishing to be in port in a populated area or in a secluded anchorage miles away from it all, enjoying tropical islands, turquoise waters and the local sealife for company.
Christmas/New Year charters are mostly booked a year in advance to secure the best suited yachts. In fact there's a strong trend towards all charter bookings being made at least nine months ahead. March and April are also highly sought after dates, coinciding with Easter break, while June and July charters are popular for families.
