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.
