Enjoy a Caribbean yacht charter itinerary on a private charter yacht cruising between the islands of St. Martin, Anguilla, and St. Barths, and then cruise a little beyond to Saba, St. Kitts, Nevis and St. Eustatius.

Cruise on either a sailing yacht or motor yacht to St. Kitts and Nevis from St. Barths, stopping to explore the quaint little island of Saba, its own sovereign state, on the way. And when returning back from St. Kitts and Nevis to St. Barths and St. Martin, stop in St. Eustatius, once a very busy and wealthy trading center in the Caribbean in the 1700’s. The three islands of St. Martin, St. Barths, and Anguilla are fabulous, but mix in a little bit more on your Caribbean yacht charter adventure by including Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Kitts, and Nevis.

Post Hurricane Irma, both the U.S. and British Virgin Islands have returned to being the same lovely yacht charter cruising area as always, with great protected anchorages, pristine beaches, and beautiful blue green clear water with extraordinary coral gardens below. Boarding to cruise the British Virgin Islands can be in either St. Thomas or Tortola. Often air flights have a better schedule for flights to St. Thomas, but flights into Tortola bring you right into the epicenter of the British Virgin Islands to board your boat, and start your charter without the Customs requirements for clearance from the U.S. to the British Virgin Islands, that a charter start in St. Thomas requires. Either way, besides a few blue tarp roofs left as a parting gift from Irma, this great cruising location is ready and waiting for the winter charter season. Attached, is a yacht charter itinerary for post-Irma, from St. Thomas to St. Thomas for sailing in the British Virgin Islands.
This Caribbean yacht charter itinerary starts in St. Thomas, the most well-known of the U.S. Virgin Islands. With the most airline flights in and out, St. Thomas, is a duty free U.S. Territory. St. Thomas, along with St. John, and St. Croix are the main islands of the U.S. Virgin Islands. While beautiful in their own right, with lovely water and beautiful beaches, many feel that the U. S. Virgin Islands are the gateway to their nearby neighbor, the British Virgin Islands, otherwise known as the BVI’s. Most one week charter itineraries out of St. Thomas visit St. John and then clear into the BVI’s, for the rest of the charter, before returning to St. John and then St. Thomas to disembark. Following is a suggested one week charter itinerary following just that outline; starting and ending in St. Thomas with much of the yacht charter spent in the nearby British Virgin Islands.
