Fact File»

One of the world’s leading yacht charter companies is offering an intimate and affordable way to experience a sailing holiday, allowing guests to rent a cabin on board a crewed catamaran. Catamarans accommodate a maximum of 12 guests and follow a set itinerary travelling between beautiful Caribbean islands in some of the world’s best sailing destinations.

Cruises through the British Virgin Islands and between Grenada and the Grenadines allow guests to relax on board, snorkel in turquoise waters and explore beautiful destinations.

These ‘By The Cabin’ cruises are ideal sailing holidays for singles, couples and small groups who wish to visit different islands without chartering their own yacht. These modern catamarans offer boutique accommodation and access to picturesque anchorages and quieter snorkelling spots that large cruise ships aren’t able to visit.

The professional crew consists of a captain and a steward/cook who prepares a fantastic selection of meals - full board is included as well as drinks at meals. Accommodation is in a cosy, double cabin with an en suite bathroom and air-conditioning, while there are plenty of common areas for relaxation and dining.

Well-planned itineraries allow guests to relax and sun bathe on board the catamaran while it sails between islands, then they can disembark to explore inland or have fun in the water - water sports equipment on board includes snorkelling gear and a sea kayak. The catamaran anchors overnight in sheltered locations to ensure a peaceful night’s sleep. All departures are guaranteed even if the cruise is not full – you may find yourself alone with just the crew!

Extend your holiday by spending a few days at one of the hotels and resorts we offer. Alternatively, we can arrange crewed and bareboat yacht charters where your itinerary can be tailored to suit your plans.
