THE BEST OF WINTER CHARTER, CELLAR & GALLEY
With its tropical climate, expanses of crystalline waters and clusters of islands with spectacular coastlines, the Caribbean has long been the world’s leading destination for winter yacht charters. In the wake of last season’s unprecedented hurricanes, which diverted many itineraries to the southern islands, this season’s outlook is promising for the whole of the region. The northern islands have made a comeback, the southern islands remain welcoming, and the “new” Caribbean is arguably better than before.
Other tried-and-true winter destinations also await, from Central America to the South Pacific and Southeast Asia. Those who are game to travel a little, or a lot, to reach paradise will be duly rewarded.
In the pages that follow, our team has compiled some of the best yacht-charter options, ideas and tips for the upcoming winter season. Grab a fruity concoction, make some mental notes, and then call your charter broker and get ready for the luxury vacation of a lifetime.
