Caribbean Yacht Charters
Welcome to Antigua Yacht Charters Ltd and our world of Caribbean yacht charters. The Eastern Caribbean, which is where we’re based, is an ideal destination for your luxury yacht charter vacation as it is blessed with many yachting centres such as the Virgin Islands, Antigua, St Barth’s, St Martin (St Maarten), Guadeloupe, Martinique, St Lucia, St Vincent & the Grenadines and Grenada. You can experience exciting open-water sailing between islands or sheltered flat-water sailing conditions, while in the calm bays and anchorages the warm and crystal-clear water is perfect for swimming, scuba-diving, snorkelling and a whole range of other water-sport toys. Fabulous beaches – some with busy, fun beach bars and others with not another person in sight – and not to forget, the Caribbean is also full of historic sites, quaint villages and much more. The Bahamas too, are yet another great yacht chartering area.
We specialize in fully crewed luxury yachts ranging from beautiful classic yachts to motor boats, catamarans, super-luxury mega power yachts and sailing superyachts. We feature specially selected charter yachts – those which we believe offer the best comfort, facilities, levels of service, water-sport toys etc., for the yachts of their type. These fully crewed charter yachts will give you the best experience of Caribbean yacht charters.

Yacht Charter News
After two years, charter shows in the Mediterranean are back in full swing – I’ve just returned from the Greek charter yacht show at Nafplio where nearly 100 yachts were lined-up. The show featured catamarans and powercats, a few monohull sailing yachts and a vast range of motor yachts, where with the exception of one or two, this was an impressive display of well-maintained yachts with some of the most charming and professional crew you could expect to meet.
Some yachts are already fully booked for the summer season and many have just a few weeks of availability remaining. But the season extends well into October, good for those of you who want to avoid the high season crowds and the highest summer temperatures of Greece.
Nafplio on the eastern side of the Peleponnese is one of the most beautiful towns in Greece. The old town, dominated by Palamidi Fortress, has a network of narrow pedestrianized streets with loads of wonderful restaurants and shops, all of which are looking most inviting. If this small town is typical of the rest of Greece, then after the last two years of travel restrictions your need for a fabulous vacation should be easily met here. The Corinth Canal which has been closed for maintenance work for the last year will be opened for a few months this summer to enable shipping and yacht traffic between the Aegean and the Ionian, so it will once again be possible to start your charter in Athens and easily cruise through to islands such as Corfu.
