Yacht Vacations Might Be This Winter’s Most Popular Getaway

As you might have noticed, things aren’t exactly normal right now, which we discussed in our blog post last month. Regency and all of the yachts and crews we represent are complying with all stay-at-home guidelines recommended by our respective local governments. But that doesn’t mean we’re not still hard at work planning for the future. As challenging as things might be right now, there’s still good reason to believe that some yachts will be available for charter by late summer, with many more available starting in November into next winter.

In fact, we expect that winter yacht vacations might just be some of the hottest vacations in 2021. There’s no beating a week or more floating between the countless islands dotting the Caribbean, Virgin Islands, and Florida Keys – a new way to stay away from a crowd! Plus winter is a fantastic time to visit. Temperatures hover in the 70s night and day, with nothing but calm, clear waters perfect for sailing.

In addition to being a fabulous way to unwind and relax, yacht vacations are a great way for families and friends to escape everyday life together. Whether you’re traveling with just you and your partner, or you planning a multi-generational vacation, with everyone sharing a bit of adventure together, we can help you find the perfect yacht and crew to meet and exceed any vacation goals. Yacht vacations eliminate some of the more difficult parts of a trip, like planning daily excursions or figuring out what and where to eat, so you can focus on enjoying quality time rather than trying to schedule it.

Whatever your style, preferences, group size, and budget, we can help you find exactly what you want from your yacht vacation.

Some of the BVI’s Best

The BVI is considered to be among the world’s finest sailing destinations, and it’s practically in the United States’ backyard. The BVI is home to countless boats in just about every shape and size you can imagine, each of which has different strengths. Some are equipped with world-class bartenders, who will mix the freshest mojito you can possibly imagine at the drop of a hat. Others have dedicated crew for childcare if you need some quiet time relaxing on deck. One of the most exciting parts of chartering a private yacht is discovering what makes them unique and finding the one that fits you best.

Here are a few yachts that we love working with:

Sur L’eau

An exclusive Privilege catamaran, Sur L’eau is fresh off of a million-dollar refit that puts it in the upper echelons of luxury catamarans. Absolutely bursting with style, this catamaran is incredibly spacious, but feels even more so because of how vibrant and airy the design is. Making prominent use of classic natural wood finish accented by bright white, this cat is something to behold, to say the least. Sur L’eau is crewed by 4 masters of their respective crafts, Rick, Alexandra, Sean, and Lianne, and features 4 queens cabins, each with their own en-suite bathroom. In addition to comfortable accommodations, Sur L’eau features a large flybridge deck perfect for scenic views, a gorgeous and huge salon, and every water toy you can imagine.

Mucho Gusto

Mucho Gusto is fresh from a 2019 launch, where this power cat made waves, both literally and metaphorically. This Horizon 65 catamaran is a beauty, inside and out, with an opulent main deck master suite housing a huge walk-around king bed. It also has a large starboard queen suite and a convertible king/twin suite, sleeping up to 6 guests. Mucho Gusto is equipped with several lounge areas, and has a top speed of 26 knots, for all you thrill-seekers. Chef Hannah is tops in her field, so if food is your passion, Mucho Gusto is a great choice,

Lady Fiona

If ever there has been a catamaran designed for luxury, it’s undoubtedly Lady Fiona. Available exclusively in the Caribbean through 2021, this Lagoon 620 Essence sailing catamaran is an owner version layout with luxurious amenities such as an expanded master suite with double vanity basins and private access to the aft deck and a huge saloon, perfect for spending downtime with friends and family. Lady Fiona is crewed by the skilled and well-liked Greg and Michelle, who have just returned to the BVI

from the Western Mediterranean. Any guest of Lady Fiona can attest to this crew’s attention to detail and dedication to personable hospitality. Michelle is consistently praised for her amazing cuisine, and Greg’s background as a sailing instructor with multiple Atlantic crossings under his belt proves his skill as a captain.
