Location: Virgin Islands
The Caribbean is one of the great yacht cruising grounds of the world, with over 7,000 tropical islands scattered through sapphire, sunlit seas. Whether you’re looking for deserted white-sand atolls fringed by coral reefs, glittering nightlife and designer boutiques, or jungle-covered peaks rising from turquoise water, the Caribbean is a simply spectacular yacht charter destination.
Yacht charter took an upscale turn in the US Virgin Islands with the opening of Yacht Haven Grande, a gated megayacht marina and shopping complex within walking distance of St. Thomas’ capital city, Charlotte Amalie.
The British Virgin Islands are an ideal yachting destination for anyone on charter for the first time. The islands themselves are close together, which means short, protected passages instead of longer, at-sea cruising.
