St. Martin Yacht Charters

After the British Virgin Islands, St. Martin is our most popular sailing destination in the Caribbean. It’s a place where sophistication blends with a relaxed, easy-going style, and where divers and snorkelers can enjoy some of the most spectacular unspoiled reefs in the world.

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 Marina Port La Royale in Marigot on St. Martin.

Things to do in 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. Enjoy the beautiful beach, hike the trail leading to sweeping views of the sea and see nearby islands. Then settle aboard your yacht to watch the stunning sunset.

The marina itself is a perfect starting point with great facilities! The Lagoon 42 was in good condition and the skipper was amazing and very knowledgeable of the area.”

Jonathan

Spain Skippered

What an AMAZING experience. We’ve just returned from a week long skippered charter from Corfu, sailing around the beautiful islands of the Ionian. Paxos, Antipaxos and Corfu Old Town were beautiful and the secluded bays we had the pleasure of visiting thanks to our local skipper, Nicholas, were simply overwhelming. Fly and flops are no longer for us – we’ll be chartering with DYC for the foreseeable future.

David

Our group of 10 had an AMAZING time in French Polynesia from May 21-28, 2022! The food was amazing, our captain and chef, husband and wife: Henry and Mehee (sp), were incredible and the whole experience on board was a dream! We can’t wait to book another trip through DYC

DYC provided a great sailing experience for my extended family on 2 monos out of Scrub Island. The boats were in great shape and preformed perfectly and the staff were friendly and helpful. Having worked for a number of charter companies over the years DYC is one of the best.

Charlie

British Virgin Islands Bareboat

Baja is my favorite place now. There was something for everyone: sailed under northerlies with mostly calm evenings, snorkeled, fished, bummed it on the sandy beaches, enchanted by pelicans feeding, greeted by the barking sea lions and explored the Ispiritu Santo island geology. DYC La Paz base provided competent professional support with a well provisioned and maintained boat. We were nourished well by an onboard cook arranged with DYC freeing us all for more play. A vacation and an adventure connected with nature.

We had an incredible trip and actually got engaged on the first night of our sail! We will certainly be back one day. Thank you for getting us ready for our charter. We were definitely beginners but he gave us a very thorough but very easy to follow training and it gave us a lot of confidence.
