A Typical Day On Board Your Private Crewed Yacht Charter

Your day might begin with a refreshing swim before breakfast. Your crew hands you a fluffy towel to dry yourself after a freshwater rinse on the aft swim platform.

After a delicious breakfast complemented by fresh tropical fruits, homemade breads and muffins, yogurts and juices, up go the sails and you’re off to a completely deserted Caribbean island.

You wouldn’t mind being stranded here forever. The beach has sand so white it hurts the eyes. The palm trees provide shade for the delicious picnic lunch your Chef has prepared for you to take ashore.

After lunch, you might decide to snorkel on the reef, which is teeming with tropical fishes and brightly colored coral. After your swim, it’s time for a nap in the hammock, or grab a book from the ship’s library to enjoy in the shade of your cockpit.

With a sunset beverage in hand, you’ll sail to your next protected anchorage for the night. The aromas from the galley tantalize. After dining alfresco, you enjoy a cognac on the aft deck. Or soak in the hot tub on the upper deck of your luxury yacht. So many stars! They seem close enough to touch.

Reluctantly, you make your way to your stateroom, surprised to see that all that fresh air, exercise and good food have you in bed by ten.

For the party crowd, it’s time to head to shore to sample the local nightlife. Dance the night away, whether you’re barefoot in the sand or on top of a table in a Greek Taverna or in a glamorous nightclub along the French Riviera. Inhibitions disappear on a crewed yacht charter!

Beach Bars, Nightlife, Shopping & History

Just because you’re living aboard a private chartered yacht doesn’t mean you’re confined to quarters! There are plenty of opportunities to explore ashore. From visiting historic sites to enjoying nightlife that will have you dancing until dawn, your crewed yacht charter offers endless choices. Shop duty-free ports for name brands, or browse one-of-a-kind beach boutiques for the perfect pareo or shell jewelry. You’ll find exotic spices and even a local potion that claims to be a hangover cure! Whatever you wish to do, you and your friends decide the itinerary on your own private yacht charter.

Scuba Divers Love the Caribbean!

At Yates Yachts, we are avid SCUBA divers who can attest to the outstanding dive sites that await you in paradise on your private crewed yacht charter. Whether you’re a novice or an expert, the Caribbean offers unparalleled diving options, from shallow reef dives to more challenging wreck dives. You’ll enjoy SCUBA diving at sites with intriguing names like Bronco Billy, Brown Pants, The Indians, and Alice’s Wonderland. Wreck dives are scattered throughout your journey, including the famous Wreck of the RMS Rhone and The Chikuzen.

Learn to Sail

Many captains specialize in teaching sailing. Your Captain is happy to impart his/her knowledge. Some yacht charters offer American Sailing Association (ASA) Certifications. If you prefer a more relaxed learning experience, take the helm one day, set the course another day, and learn to set the sails properly on a day that best fits your schedule. Your crew is eager to show you the pleasures of cruising, whether you’re a first time sailor or an expert seaman.

A Taste for Fine Dining?

Idyllic islands and beautiful surroundings aren’t the only things you’ll enjoy on a private yacht. You will be absolutely amazed at the delectable creations coming out of your galley. Prior to your private Caribbean cruise, we’ll send you Preference Sheets to complete, letting your Chef know about your individual likes, dislikes, beverage choices, your favorite brand names and any special occasions to be celebrated. There’s even a place for kids to list their favorites. Your galley and bar will be stocked accordingly.

Good Friends, Family Reunions & Corporate Groups

Yates Yachts will hand-select the finest crewed yachts for a sailing reunion with friends or family. If you’re a large group, we will match you to several yachts for a tandem charter, sailing together, playing together, and anchoring together. If you’re up for a friendly “gentleman’s race” that can be arranged too. Beach barbecues, shared happy hours, and even a friendly “gentleman’s race” are just some of the highlights of chartering more than one boat to sail in tandem.
