Sailing St. Martin

Saint Martin family chilling blue water yacht charter

St. Martin is about 150 miles north of Guadeloupe. As it is shared by France and the Netherlands, you’ll enjoy an interesting dual culture on your St. Martin sailing charter. Its location also means you can explore some of the other beautiful islands in the eastern Caribbean, including Anguilla and St. Barts. 

Caribbean and European food, culture and cuisine come together on St. Martin like no other place in the island chain, with its world-class restaurants, casual beach bars and legendary beaches.

Be sure to visit the nearby island of Anguilla, where you’ll find uncrowded beaches dotted with quaint beach bars and cafes. Road Bay is the main port of Anguilla; a charming village set on a stunning beach. 

You should also sail to the island of St. Barts; it’s a St. Martin yacht charter favorite. Shopping and dining are at their best in the lovely European-influenced port town of Gustavia. The beaches are equally appealing, including the little known Shell Beach and the scenic Saline Beach.

Our base is located at Anse Marcel Marina on St. Martin.

Saint Martin happy family yacht charter

Visit quiet Tintamare

Sail to Tintamare, a pristine island just off of St. Martin’s east coast in the heart of the nature reserve. Anchor off the deserted white sandy beach to swim, go shell hunting and hiking. Later, enjoy a secluded evening onboard, dining under the stars – it’s one of our favorite things to do in St. Martin.

Join the ‘in crowd’ at St. Barts

Set sail early to St Barts, the island of billionaires, and anchor outside the red-roofed harbor at the island’s capital, Gustavia. Enjoy an evening ashore, complete with fine dining, exploring and nightlife.

Dine at Grand-Case

On your Caribbean yacht charter, sail to Grand-Case, a protected cove on St. Martin known for its excellent dining opportunities. This village features colorful houses, beach bars and restaurants serving French and Creole cuisine.

Sail to Pinel Island

Tiny Pinel Island is a local favorite, just off the southeastern coast of St. Martin. This little treasure is well-protected from the wind, making it a haven for kayakers, snorkelers and hikers, as well as those seeking a relaxed rum punch on the beach. Get there early to stake your place on the sand.

Anchor at Anse de Colombier

This secluded and protected anchorage is difficult to reach other than by boat, but you should put it on your list of things to do in St. Martin.

Why should I book with Dream Yacht?

Dream Yacht Worldwide is now the world’s leading yacht charter company and offers you:

  • A diverse fleet of yachts with a wide variety of models and manufacturers to suit every type of sailor.
  • We have 40+ exciting destinations and we’re a pioneer in finding new sailing grounds.

  • You’ll receive a warm and friendly welcome from our base teams who will share regional tips, recommendations and advice.
  • We’re also a trusted seller of new and used boats and an innovator in charter management options – sailing is our business.

What licenses do I need to hire a yacht and sail myself?

The skipper of a yacht has primary responsibility for the safety of the crew and yacht at all times. Many destinations require just relevant experience demonstrated by a sailing resume.

To charter in the Mediterranean, it is mandatory that you hold a sailing license recognized by the local port authorities for bareboat charters in Italy, Greece, Croatia, Spain, Malta, Montenegro and Turkey. Other destinations that require a license include Madagascar, Seychelles, Thailand, Brazil and Sweden. For Belize, the port authority will issue a certificate of competency and an application is made on arrival.

You must take your proof of competency and original certificate with you on your charter. We advise you to contact our team about your qualifications and destination requirements before booking.

By accepting the yacht contract you are confirming that you and/or members of your crew are capable and competent to sail the yacht in the conditions and cruising area of the charter. We reserve the right not to hand over the yacht if, after inspection, it is the opinion that the charterer is not, or may not be competent to be in charge of the vessel.

What is a skippered yacht charter?

A skippered yacht charter is when you rent one of our boats for you and your guests and a professional skipper sails it for you. No sailing experience is needed.

You will need to choose a yacht with a cabin for your skipper to sleep in as they are responsible for your yacht for the duration of your charter. We will find the skipper for you once you have found your perfect destination and yacht.

You will need to pay for your skipper’s food. You can invite the skipper to dine with you on board or out at a local restaurant.

What is the difference between crewed and by the cabin charters?

Our by the cabin charter charters offer exciting destination tours on a set itinerary crafted by our destination experts. You can book a double cabin and private bathroom and will share the boat with other guests who have booked the other available cabins. You will be looked after by a professional skipper and hostess with itineraries ranging from three to 11 nights. There is a set menu and included meals and drinks vary depending on location.

Can you tell me about your yachts?

Our super premier yachts are less than 12 months old from their first charter date, while premier yachts are less than three years old from their first charter date. Our yachts are well maintained and undergo regular, scheduled technical inspection.

In case of emergency, you can rely on our hotline, at any time, seven days a week. If you experience a technical failure affecting major and important parts of the yacht, we will repair the failure within four hours of receiving your call during working hours (8am to 5pm). If you lose more than four hours (during working hours), we will compensate you for one full day. If the repair takes more than one day, we will provide you with a similar boat or compensate you on a pro-rata basis. If restrictions to this guarantee apply in specific areas, this will be detailed during the charter check-in at the base.

Do I need insurance for my bareboat charter?

We highly recommend you arrange travel insurance in case you need to cancel for an unexpected reason to cover non-refundable deposits. Please make sure you have personal travel insurance that covers sailing.

We will insure the vessel throughout the charter with first-class insurers against all risks, to provide permission to charter as under contract terms and to cover third-party liability.

The following options are available in limited locations:

  • Security Deposit: This varies on the size of the boat and when the boat is returned without damage it is refunded.
  • Damage Waiver: The charterer agrees to pay a non-refundable damage waiver at the time of booking, as well as a reduced damage deposit on embarkation that is refundable upon completion of the charter should no damage occur.

What an EXCELLENT experience. We just returned from a week long charter with skipper from Corfu, sailing around the beautiful islands of the Ionian Sea.

Baja is now my favorite place. There was something for everyone: sailing under northerly winds with mostly calm evenings, snorkeling, fishing, secluded sandy beaches, pelican feedings, being greeted by barking sea lions, and exploring the geology of Ispiritu Santo Island. Dream Yacht Base La Paz provided competent professional support with a well-equipped and maintained boat. We were wonderfully cooked by an on-board chef arranged with Dream Yacht, which meant more free time for all of us. An unforgettable vacation and adventure connected with nature.
