The highlights

Old Year’s Night

The BVI‘s main hubs, like Tortola and Jost Van Dyke, come alive with beachfront bars, live music, and sensational fireworks displays, along with plenty of boat-to-boat hopping during the last night of the year.

French Caribbean flair

Revel in the fusion of French and Dutch influences, that create a unique atmosphere for welcoming the new year. St. Martin hosts spectacular fireworks displays, beach parties, and grand celebrations in the capital city of Marigot, where the festivities continue well into the early hours of January 1st.

Easily accessible

As popular tourist destinations the Caribbean islands are easily accessible from all major U.S. airports. Non-stop flights connect Newark to St. Thomas or Miami to St. Martin for example.

Crucian Festival

The annual Crucian Festival in St. Croix (Dec 27-Jan 6) is a vibrant and culturally rich celebration that encapsulates the spirit of the U.S. Virgin Islands. The festival features a kaleidoscope of activities, including lively parades, colorful costumes, traditional music, and delicious Caribbean cuisine.

Christmas winds

In December the legendary “Christmas winds” can bring 25-30 knots for days on end to the British Virgin Islands.

Celebrity spotting

In the celebrity haven of St. Barth, a short sail from St. Martin, the New Year’s experience is synonymous with luxury and sophistication. The St. Jean Bay area becomes the epicenter of celebration, with superyachts lighting up the harbor and the air filled with the sounds of champagne corks popping.

How much does a bareboat charter cost?

You can tailor your yacht charter to make the most of your budget. We’ve listed some considerations that will make a difference to your bareboat charter cost.

  • Choose an older yacht – Our newest yachts are more expensive to charter than others in our fleet. As yachts get older they move to our economy fleet and offer the best value. You can sail wonderful older yachts and that will lower your charter price.
  • Sail in low season – Peak seasons are popular for good reason, yet the shoulder seasons can also provide pleasant climates and fewer crowds. Low season also has the advantage of being less expensive with more yachts available and cheaper flights.
  • Charter for longer – Most charters are for one or two weeks, but it is possible to secure additional discounts if you sail for more than three weeks.
  • Combine discounts – You can combine discounts to get up to 20% off if you book 180 days before departure, have booked with us before and book during a boat show. Take a look at our bareboat yacht charter special offers.
  • Mooring and marina fees – Your choice of destination makes a big difference to your overall bareboat charter cost. Some locations offer free or very low mooring fees if you buy a meal at the local restaurant. In others, you may need to pay marina fees, as well as fees for landing on islands, entering national parks or marine reserves.
  • Add-ons for your charter – Water toys enable you to explore mangrove creeks, blue caves and lagoons, or to simply exercise and have fun. It is easy to add kayaks or paddle boards to your charter.
  • Early boarding – Check in and depart on the same day.
  • Delivery sailing – Experienced sailors can help us get our fleet ready for the season by sailing boats to our network of bases. If you’re flexible and have the right resume, this could suit you.

When do I need to pay the balance?

You will need to pay a 30% deposit to confirm the booking and the balance is due 45 days prior to embarkation.

What payment is required?

You will need to pay a 30% deposit to confirm the reservation and the balance is due 60 days before boarding. Once a booking has been confirmed, offers and discounts cannot be applied retroactively.

Are there any limitations of where I can charter ?

There may be restrictions as a result of:

  • Insurance coverage
  • Crew licensing requirements
  • Civil unrest or war
  • Hazardous navigation conditions

Please discuss your plans with us and let us know if they change.

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.

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.
