In our opinion, there’s no better time to get away than in the dead of winter. You can escape the short days, low light and cold weather, while taking the time to relax far from work and everyday life. Winter vacations are the perfect time to recharge, regroup, and most of all, enjoy a healthy dose of privacy and comfort, and there’s no better winter vacation than a yacht trip meticulously planned by an expert yacht charter broker. Just think, instead of cold winter days spent indoors, you could be enjoying sunny skies, weather consistently in the mid-70’s, and entire days spent away from the crowds and rush of everyday life.
The best time to start planning winter yacht charters is spring if possible, which will ensure that you have the most options at your disposal. Winter yacht charters typically fill up fairly quickly, especially around peak times like the holidays. Fortunately, when you book with a yacht charter broker, you have access to every available option, so you aren’t short on opportunities when you start planning. So where might you go and what boat and crew will take you there?
At Regency Yacht Vacations, we help you find the perfect yacht to fit your vacation style, no matter where you want to go. We work with yachts and crews that specialize in everything from watersports to scuba to complete relaxation to culinary mastery, as well as any combination of these options. You can charter with 2 people or 2 families, island hop or relax onboard, and even change up the flow of your trip with crew-recommended hotspots. Now imagine enjoying all of these amazing options and amenities during the coldest months of the year. Sounds like a pretty fantastic change of pace, right?
If it seems too good to be true, don’t take our word for it! Here are just a few of the fantastic yachts available for charter in the BVI this winter.
Amazing Catamarans that Call the BVI Home in the Winter
At Regency, we make a point to get to know the captains and crews we work with on a personal level. We know which crews love high-speed and exciting charters and which excel at providing a low-key and relaxing environment, giving us unique insight into designing a charter experience specifically tailored to your tastes. Here are a handful of amazing yachts and crews sailing the BVI this winter.
Looking for something fast-paced that doesn’t skimp on luxury? Trident Tides will fit the bill outstandingly. This Catana 47 catamaran is built for performance, with space for up to 6 guests in 3 en suite queen cabins. Crewing this boat is the incredibly fun crew, Captain Zane and Chef/First Mate Shivani. Zane has been sailing professionally in North America, South America, the Caribbean, and Europe since his college days, gaining a USCG Masters License along the way. Shivani’s culinary mastery began in her family’s restaurant, where she gained experience working with fresh, local ingredients. These two are known for providing high seas adventure to any and everyone onboard.
If you’re interested in a wholly unique sailing experience, Sea Boss is a fabulous candidate. An award-winning Horizon 60 power catamaran, this boat was custom-built with nothing less than the peak of luxury in mind. At every port, Sea Boss is the envy of anyone passing by, with a sleek, modern look. She has 3 luxurious staterooms for up to 6 guests, including an enormous full-beam master suite. Every square inch of the interior exudes luxury, with gorgeous natural wood finishes, stylish yet comfortable furnishings, and ample space for enjoying one another’s company. Sea Boss’ crew, Captain Nathan and Chef/Mate Laura, is the perfect match for this stunning catamaran. This British couple is highly experienced in both service and sailing, providing a luxurious environment for you to enjoy.
There are few models of yachts as impressive and meticulously crafted as the Lagoon 620. Well-renowned for attention to detail and flawless style, Lagoon vessels are always a sight to behold, and Foxy Lady is absolutely no exception. A well-established BVI catamaran, Foxy Lady has an outstanding reputation among her clientele, offering such amenities as 4 spacious king cabins, a flybridge with 360 degree panoramic views, and a state-of-the-art Sonos sound system. Foxy Lady is crewed by fun and relaxation-oriented Jos Smart and Julia Taylor, both of whom have a long background in the hospitality industry. Jos has a great deal of experience at the helm, having spent his youth on the water. He is also a certified Divemaster and can show you some of the BVI’s finest dive spots and marine life. Julia has over a decade of experience in the hospitality industry. Her culinary skills were perfected at the renowned Ashburton Cookery School, and she loves to create diverse and exquisite cuisines for guests.
What a Winter Charter is Like
Now, you’ve heard a bit about some of the amazing boats sailing the BVI in the wintertime, you might be wondering, what does a wintertime yacht charter have to offer that a normal vacation doesn’t?
The BVI is a world-class sailing destination with calm waters and warm weather year-round. During the winter, you can enjoy weather that hovers right in the mid-70’s, rolling green hillsides of passing isles, and constantly sunny, blue skies. If you go ashore, you can go for a stroll through casual, relaxed island life, enjoying the vibrant colors of the native bougainvillea flowers in full bloom. With countless islets to explore and some of the finest beaches in the world, the BVI has something for everyone, from exciting night life to quieter, more exclusive areas where relaxation is king. During the winter, the BVI remains sunny, breezy, and warm, providing the perfect getaway for those of you who need a break from the cold weather and short days.
As perfect as the BVI is during the winter, it is made even better when experienced from the deck of your own private yacht. BVI yacht charters are completely tailored to fit your tastes and the style of vacation you want. At even the best resorts, eventually you will run out of things to do, and at that point, you’re stuck in one place surrounded by other guests. On a chartered yacht, you never run out of things to do and hotspots to enjoy, because everything is planned in advance in your itinerary and you’re constantly on the move to your next grand adventure, all from the comfort and privacy of your own yacht.
As your yacht charter broker, we do most of the legwork in preparing your itinerary. We want to make the planning process as simple and stress-free as possible, that way you can focus on dreaming up your perfect vacation instead of figuring out the logistics. Our Expert Brokers take your interests, preferred locations and activities, and your ideal accommodations and create a list of options for you to select from. Once you decide on a potential itinerary, we work out all the details with the crew. As we plan together, we can even build in a level of flexibility that you are comfortable with, allowing you to decide in the moment what you’re most interested in doing. On the other hand, we can also work with you to plan a trip with everything set in advance, so all you have to worry about onboard is drifting towards your next relaxation spot. The choice is all yours!
