Caribbean yacht charter winter season 2023

The beginning of the Caribbean yacht charter winter season is marked by two important crewed yacht charter shows – the first in Tortola, British Virgin Islands and the second in St Thomas, US Virgin Islands. Both are excellent shows that allow industry players to network, exchange experiences, ideas and future plans. The yachts that participate get plenty of attention and the crews are generous in showing what it takes to execute a successful and memorable charter. Together, we confidently create experiences that will live on forever.

US Virgin islands Yacht show

Whether you are chartering in the British Virgin Islands or the US Virgin Islands, you’ll be sailing around some of the most beautiful tropical islands, most of which are uninhabited and completely unspoiled. Expect warm trade winds, the most incredible turquoise seas, beautiful sandy beaches, cocktails and palm trees. The itineraries are tailor-made to guests’ requirements and wishes and can include: hiking, snorkelling and scuba diving, the ultimate SPA experience, visits to rum distilleries and sugar mills, and eating some of the finest lobster (the Island of Anegada is particularly popular for this!).
