Top reasons to charter a yacht in the Bahamas or Caribbean this summer

22nd May 2017
Glittering turquoise waters, white sandy beaches and the scent of pina coladas drifting on the balmy breeze – a Bahamian or Caribbean vacation is nothing short of the stuff of dreams. Stretching over 500 miles and home to over a quarter of the world’s coral reefs, the pristine seas of the Bahamas are best explored by yacht. Imagine waking up with a dip in the warm waters, lunching on exquisite cuisine while anchored in a deserted bay, and finishing the day watching the sunset with a rum cocktail in the Jacuzzi on your private deck – a luxury yacht charter offers an exclusive experience in paradise. Why not plan your own yacht charter escape this summer, and be inspired by our top reasons to choose to visit these unforgettable destinations.
Watersports and warm waters
The temperature of the Bahamian seas averages a beautiful 26°C (80°F) all year round, making it a dream destination for water lovers. Adrenalin junkies will be in heaven chartering a yacht with easy access to the water via the yacht’s swimming platform and a host of power toys such as  Jetskis, Seabobs, Paddleboards and towables. Spend the long Bahamian days chasing waves and the evenings enjoying al fresco dining on one of the yacht's expansive exterior decks, or relaxing with movies and music.

Magical marine life
Huge colonies of sea stars, curious dolphins, beautiful shells and the biggest reefscapes in the world make the Bahamas a top choice for discerning divers and snorkelers. Vivid colours, underwater caves, hordes of fish and crystal clear waters all await you. Popular charter yacht 39.5m (129’7’’) Milk Money is a top choice for a diving vacation – anchor in a secluded cay to explore the magic of the underwater world, while those that stay aboard can relax in the timeless elegance and luxury of this beautiful yacht. For those new to diving, a charter vacation aboard 31.4m (103’) Allure offers the perfect introduction and guarantee of finding the best dives, thanks to her professional crew which includes an on board diving instructor.

 Year round warm weather
The Bahamas offer reliable temperatures day and night, sunny skies and warm waters year round. What better way to escape the rain and grey skies of winter than a charter vacation on a classic gentleman’s cruiser? During the day the ample outdoor lounge and relaxation spaces on the 37.8m (124’) motoryacht Ocean Drive will let you bask in the Bahamian sun, while in the evening her eight-person dining area is perfect for entertaining guests with top notch cuisine prepared by your personal chef.

Relaxation and romance
Out of over 700 islands of the Bahamas, only 30 are inhabited – leaving almost endless deserted cays, coves and beaches. With knowledgeable crew and a customised itinerary, chartering a private yacht gives you the freedom to break away from the crowds and explore these untouched areas, many of which are accessible only by sea. For a taste of tasteful luxury, cruise into your own private paradise aboard the charter yacht 34.14m (112’) Frisky Lady – relax in the expansive guest rooms, or in the Jacuzzi on her beautiful open flybridge before settling down to dinner on the outdoor dining area. For an especially unique experience charter the motoryacht 34.5m (113’2’’) Star of the Sea and explore the pink beaches of Bermuda – anchor in a private cove and get up early to watch the surreal sight of the soft morning light touching crimson sands. An ideal escape from busy modern life Star of the Sea is the perfect base for drifting on the sapphire waters, while enjoying a cocktail or meal al fresco, sunbathing, or simply unwinding in her private on-deck Jacuzzi.
