The Best of the Best Charter Yachts for 2018
Every year new exciting crewed charter yachts enter into charter in various worldwide yacht charter locations, and those crewed charter yachts we already love continue to offer a stellar on board charter experience.
Here at Northrop-Johnson Yacht Charters, we travel constantly to inspect charter yachts around the world. Last spring we were in the Western and Eastern Mediterranean, and this fall we were in the Caribbean, including just returning from the largest industry only charter show of the year in Antigua. And all summer long we inspect charter yachts in New England.

Antigua Industry Charter Yacht Show
We just returned from inspecting crewed charter yachts available for charter in various Caribbean island chains from St. Thomas to Grenada, at the Antigua Industry Charter Show.
Wondering what is an industry Charter Show? This is our opportunity, charter brokers only, to see the yachts we offer in various worldwide charter locations at the dock, set up as if our charter guest might walk on at any minute, with crew at attention and in full uniform, so we can see what charter guests will see when they board for the first time. We caught up with crew we know well and met new crew while checking on the overall maintenance, cleanliness, amenities and water toys on board each yacht. We were very happy with the yachts we saw. If a luxury crewed yacht charter is of interest this winter in the Caribbean, we have the latest information on the best charter choices!
Lower USD to EUR Exchange Rates may be Available for your EUR Priced Charter Booked with Us
With the growing number of charters being priced in Euros, Northrop- Johnson Yacht Charters has contracted with Money Corp U.S. a large foreign exchange company for our clients to be offered a reduced corporate exchange rate by Money Corp U.S. for EUR payments for any charter booked with us priced in EUR. By our contracting with Money Corp., any of our clients interested will receive the reduced corporate bulk exchange rate, which is usually lower than that which a private individual might be offered for a one time exchange from their bank.
Not sure if the Money Corp corporate rate for which we have contracted is lower than a rate you might be provided elsewhere? Money Corp is happy to provide an exchange rate for an EUR payment you might need to make which you can take to your bank or financial institution to see if the rate offered by your bank is lower than the rate offered by Money Corp. We are not a bank or financial institution. This is a pass through service only, in which we do not participate or have a financial interest. Our interest is in helping you find the best exchange rate possible for your EUR priced charter.
