This option is great for qualified sailors who want to skipper their own yacht or catamaran in the Caribbean. We operate a great selection of yachts and catamarans. Enjoy snorkeling with turtles, tuck into delicious lobster BBQs and explore hidden treasures of the Grenadines – all from the comfort of your private sailing yacht or catamaran. Take advantage of our detailed briefing, local knowledge and top tips at the start of your holiday then explore the beautiful Grenadine islands at leisure.
Monohull bareboat charter yachts are from 40 feet CINNAMON, then 45 KALIMBA and our Oceanis 55 GOOD VIBRATIONS. Catamarans for bareboat charter range from our NEW Nautitech 40s LITTLE WING and KAILIANI, our Lagoon 42 HAPPY, new Lagoon 45 MAGIC and our Nautitech Open 46 FLO. All equipped to the highest standards.
At least one person in your party must be qualified and experienced enough to handle the yacht safely and competently (minimum RYA Day Skipper or hold an ICC, ASA qualification – send us your resume if you don’t hold a certificate and we can advise if you still are able to charter with us). You will be fully briefed on the yacht and given advice on the sailing area prior to your departure.
Charters generally start and finish in Bequia, which is ideally positioned to explore the Grenadines. A seven day trip is ideal and ten days allows you to explore the immediate area at a much more leisurely pace. On a longer trip you can travel to St Lucia and beyond in the North and Grenada in the South.
One way trips are also available which can sometimes match well with international flights. There will be a charge to position your yacht at the start and end of the trip outside of low season.
