It is beautiful and warm, has amazing beaches, interesting cultures and perhaps most importantly, the Caribbean has a huge selection of crewed yachts, luxury yachts and superyachts which you can rent and experience a truly magnificent vacation around the various Island groups. The Caribbean is a natural wonderland onshore, but probably most importantly, it has an ocean laden with treasures, from tiny beach ridden coral atolls to substantial mountainous islands exuding rich and colourful cultures. An area which is famous for its beautiful waterways and islands, there is no better way to experience the Caribbean than on a crewed luxury yacht charter vacation.

Some of the Recommended Caribbean Yacht Charter Spots:

Popular places to visit on a yacht charter include Antigua, St Barts, Anguilla, St Martin, The British Virgin Islands, The US Virgin Islands, the Grenadines and many more  – see the full list on the left menu.

More than ever crewed luxury yachts are beginning to explore more exotic and remote Caribbean Islands, so ask your charter broker or captain for more information on some of these more remote treasures. Due to the scale and diversity of the different yacht charter areas of the Caribbean we have covered the major charter locations individually. Please note that if there is a charter boat cruising area, not covered here that you are interested in, please contact us and we will provide you with that information personally in the form of a yacht charter itinerary.

As one of the most popular yacht charter grounds in the world, second only to the Mediterranean in popularity, the types of boats available for rental in the Caribbean include all the main types such as motor, sailing, skippered, crewed yachts, catamarans, power boats, sailboat, luxury yachts as well as the ever growing superyacht and mega yacht charter. Both beginner and expert private yacht charterers alike are drawn to the Caribbean for its warm winds, protected waterways and beautiful anchorages. The Caribbean is a special place that has beautiful tropical islands that lie snug within a tropical island necklace as laid out on a large blue sea.

The Caribbean is also steeped in a fertile history of sailing adventure. Ever since the days of galleons and pirates the Caribbean has been host to some of the most satisfying sailing anywhere in the world. On your Caribbean yachting vacation you can find, an incredible amount of choice and variety and all in a relatively small area - thriving bars and Caribbean nightlife; first rate cuisine; spectacular white powder beaches; lush tropical rainforest; cloud-fringed mountain peaks; exotic birdlife; amazing diving and snorkeling and a serene blend of European sophistication and warm Caribbean hospitality. The problem is, with so many superb Caribbean yacht charter locations and charter boat operators to choose form, where do you start when planning a holiday? With CharterWorld of course…

The Time of Year to Charter a Yacht in the Caribbean:

The main Caribbean sailing season runs from November through to July. The Caribbean primary high season is from mid-December to March, when the winter escapees from North America and Europe arrive in their greatest numbers. The hurricane season is from late July to early October, although hurricanes are in general rare in the southern Caribbean. Unfortunately, they can be prevalent around Cuba, Bahamas and the east coast of the U.S. every few years. This is the least expensive time for chartering in the Caribbean and there are some really good deals are available. However, as well as running the risk of storms, this time of year also tends to be associated with lighter (or non-existent) winds.

As with many boating locations the Caribbean shoulder season, in this case from April to July, is also a great time to charter a boat as there are less shore based visitors, some lovely settled sunny weather, and warm yet steady breeze. The Caribbean is made up of many different multi-nation (and multi-cultural) volcanic islands. There are amazing sailing grounds stretching from Cuba and Jamaica in the west, through the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, The Virgin Islands, The Leeward Islands and the Windward Islands, finishing with Trinidad and Tobago off the coast of Venezuela.
