With more than 7,000 islands dotting its warm emerald waters, and a multitude of secluded anchorages, the Caribbean and the Bahamas offers you many diverse activities and holiday experiences. With several island destinations to charter from, a luxury yacht charter offers you the freedom to holiday while staying away from the crowds.
You can choose to escape the winter chill and spend the holidays cruising the Bahamas or Caribbean on any of these superlative luxury motor yachts. Not only will you savour this special time of year with friends and family on your own private charter vessel, you will be refreshed and ready for 2023 with life-long memories of idyllic islands, mouth-watering cuisine and diverse cultures.
Unfettered by the constraints of land aboard your own personal charter yacht – sailing or power, mono or multihull – the Caribbean has a lot more than palm-fringed beaches to tempt you. Hike the rainforest or zip-line above it, snorkel, dive, sail, paddle, or try something totally new like jetskiing or kitesurfing.
Your Captain and crew are able to arrange a choice of activities for all ages – for those charter guests inclined to simply lounge and lap up the sunshine, to the more active who wish to extract the most out of each day.
And, of course, there is no need this year to labor over that turkey as you have your own personal chef who will provide you a feast with all the trimmings that you and your family will be talking about many years from now.
The charter professionals at Luxury Charter Group offer charter clients unrivaled insider knowledge about the charter vessels that still have availability these holidays in the Caribbean and Bahamas. Talk to us today.
