Why a Superyacht Charter

With easy access from South Florida a Caribbean yacht charter in the Bahamas is an easily reached escape from life on the mainland. While Bay Street in Nassau and nearby Paradise Island are the main tourist hubs for a Bahamas yacht charter you will likely want to explore the islands further afield. Fancy diving on a coral reef or swimming with pigs at Pig Beach? Big game fishing off the Berry Islands? There is plenty to enjoy on a superyacht charter Bahamas with Borrow a Boat!

Destinations

There are six broad charter destination you can enjoy on a Bahamas luxury yacht charter. Let’s take a look at them below.

New Providence Island

Perhaps flying in from South Florida you will likely begin your Bahamas luxury yacht charter from Nassau. With its main strip Bay Street and the fun to be had on Paradise Island, New Providence will certainly be a way to begin your sailing vacation among the cays and islands with a bang!

Setting sail from your New Providence Island marina, you will soon reach Rose Island. This is an almost uninhabited island that is popular among boating types who live on New Providence - anchoring off Rose Island they love to have barbecues with the catch of the day as the main event!

Berry Islands

Thanks to the deep water currents upwelling in the area, the Berry Islands have a large population of game fish that live just off the islands. This makes for one of the best spots for big game fishing in the Bahamas.

Abaco Island

NE of the Berry Islands are the Abaco island group. With their capital Marsh Harbour, these are notable for their colonial era architecture, golf courses and great resorts. Sailing between the islands such as Treasure Cay and Great Abaco you will soon come to relax on the clear water and enjoy the pristine beaches.

Eleuthera Islands

Eleuthera has some of the most remote Bahamian out islands wsuch as Harbour Island and Spanish Wells. Whether wandering the quiet streets of Dunmore Town on Harbour Island or watching the unique culture on Spanish Wells you will soon realise just how relaxed life can be on these outposts.

Long Island and Cat Island

Sitting to the south of Eleuthera, Long Island and Cat Island are another pair of laid back Bahamian islands with their own unique subcultures and opportunities to enjoy a swim over a coral reef off a beautiful beach.

Exuma Land and Sea Park

Exuma Land and Sea Park to the west of Cat Island and south of New Providence is one of the major draws to the Bahamas. Much of the wildlife (with the exception of the pigs on Pig Beach) is protected from exploitation on this national park - you’re not even allowed to fish!

Big Major Cay is known as Pig Beach and is an opportunity to wim with hungry pigs who will gladly accept the offer of treats - do be aware they aren’t very polite if you tease them.

The Land and Sea Park is administered from Warderick Wells Cay close to Shroud Cay. Do pay the centre on Warderick Wells Cay a visit to learn more about the flora and fauna in and around the sea here.

While you can drop anchor off a beach here, you might find the private island of Highbourne Cay a better bet as it has a marina and resort where you can get ashore without using a tender from your superyacht. Highborne Cay has a range of conveniences ashore too, perhaps as a break from too much peace and quiet on the likes of Normans Cay or Staniel Cayin Exuma!

A Bahamas luxury yacht charter is best enjoyed in the winter months between November and April with the peak season in December and January on your sailing yacht or motor yacht charter yacht.

A Bahamas luxury crewed yacht charter is one of the safest, most luxurious and most convenient ways to travel and enjoy beautiful locations from the quieter smaller islands to a more vibrant destination like Marsh Harbour on your yacht charter holiday.

Connect with the yacht owner or charter company through us today to arrange your Caribbean superyacht charter!

Catamaran

Whether sailing yachts or power catamarans, these have a wide beam and shallow draft and make for spacious and comfortable luxury yachts. Even the smaller vessels (15m LOA and up) will have en suite heads in the cabins, and can often carry water toys like jet skis and paddleboards aboard. You can have a crewed catamaran charter or bareboat charter depending on the size of vessel and what you want from a sailing holiday.

Motor Yacht

From a catamaran to a luxury motor yacht charter these are faster and often have far more space. Expect a more comfortable, premium experience on motor yacht, ranging from a mini cruiser to top end superyacht charter vessels. You can have crewed yacht charter or bareboat charter depending on the size of vessel with the skipper and crew looking after you.

The larger crewed yachts are often available on a corporate yacht charter or private yacht charter basis as a means of escaping to an out of the way place without distraction. These will have water toys such as a speed boat, jet ski and diving equipment so you can enjoy water sports even without having to go ashore.

Sailing Yacht

Whether a classic racing yacht or more modern cruiser racer sailing yacht, these sleek, stylish and more traditional sailboats still have the space you need but can sail in near silence with just the sound of the wind and waves as you move along under wind power alone. These can come as something smaller or a 30 metre plus corporate yacht chartertoo with water toys and a skipper and crew looking after you.

Weather conditions in the Bahamas:

Luxury yacht charters are best when augmented by great weather.

Early Season (November): The last of the hurricanes should have gone by now. It will be warm but not uncomfortable in the mid 20s C range. Expect easterlies of 12-15mph. The dry season is beginning but you may get the odd soaking - hardly uncomfortable in such warmth!

Peak Season (December and January): Easterlies again prevail most of the time, building to a fairly constant 15-20mph. The dry season is in full swing so expect little in the way of rain. It will be comfortably warm at around 25 C most of the day.

Late Season (February to May): Winds: easterlies, 25mph fairly steadily. A little rain is to be expected. Temperatures increase to the high 20s C.

A northern hemisphere summer yacht charter vacation is possible. The marinas are cheaper and it can be quieter. However this is approaching hurricane season when the region goes into hibernation. It is hotter and wetter, helping breed stormy weather.

When to Visit the Bahamas

One way to enjoy a Bahamas luxury yacht charter could be by joining in the festivities of Junkanoo, a celebration that takes place on the 26th December and 1st January. Descendant from the slaves that were brought to the Bahamas, these are wild and fun carnivals that will pep you up, particularly if you had too much ‘Christmas cheer’ on the 25th!

December and January are when the marinas are at their busiest and most expensive. It can get crowded, even out on the smaller islands. Most of the social events are at their best at this time of year though and the buzz is a good one.

For those after a quieter time after the crowds have gone, try to visit the Bahamas in May. The crowds have generally gone and the marinas are cheaper. It can be wetter as the wet season kicks in but that could well be worthwhile sacrifice to enjoy the islands at their most authentic.
