It was once the chosen world of pirates, privateers and plunderers, but today the beautiful islands of the Bahamas are a destination of desire for luxury charter yacht guests from around the world. Here are a few of our recommended crewed motor yachts and a sailing yacht and our top tips to get the most out of your vacation.
1. When should we go?
The Bahamas are truly a year-round destination. The constant trade winds provide the Bahamas with a warm agreeable climate that varies very little over the year. The most refreshing time is from December through February when the temperature is between 70-75°F (21-24°C). It is a little warmer in the remaining months with temperatures that average 80-85°F (27-29°C). Bear in mind that cyclone season goes from June to November but they do not hit here as frequently as they do the East Coast of the US.
2. Where should we embark?
There are a number of places that you can embark on your private charter yacht in the Bahamas. The easiest port is Nassau where the main international airport is, with a number of daily flights from mainland America. Nassau is also home to the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort, where the marina is large enough to berth yachts up to 240 feet (73m) long. The island also provides luxury charter guests with everything they could want ashore pre or post charter as well - shopping, fine dining, spas, entertainment, casinos & golf courses.
3. Where should we go in the Bahamas?
With over 700 islands spanning more than 100,000 square miles of ocean there are plenty of luxury charter yacht itineraries to choose from.
One possibility is to head south to the Exumas. This region in the Bahamas is an archipelago of 365 magnetic islands and cays that are scattered across a cerulean sea. The opportunities for unbridled exploration and adventure are seemingly endless: you can choose anything from the delights of mixing it with the locals in their old-world villages and dining on local delicacies, through to total isolation on a remote sand cay. Other alternatives include fishing, snorkelling, scuba diving and other water sports.
Another Bahamas yacht charter option is to explore the Abacos, an archipelago north of Nassau. This island paradise is thought by many to be the boating and sailing capital of the Bahamas. Whether it is the gentle trade winds, the tranquil beaches or the charming villages, the islands of the Abacos have an appeal that constantly tempts travellers from across the sea. Charter guests will fall in love with this area with its numerous picturesque harbors, serene anchorages and stunning ocean sunsets.
