While you'll want to scratch destinations like Alaska and northern Europe off your bucket list with temperatures far too cold for an enjoyable voyage, luxury winter yachts charters are a joy during the winter in many regions across the globe.

With so many blissful locations to consider, we'll help you select the very best for a winter charter itinerary with countless desirable amenities and perhaps even your own private chef! So, welcome aboard!


A winter yachts charter in the Bahamas is like sailing through tropical perfection. More than 700 islands, cays, and islets are spread like jewels across brilliant turquoise water teeming with marine life. They're framed by stunning sun-drenched white sands along with some pink stretches too, like beautiful Pink Sand Beach on Harbour Island.

Unique experiences can be enjoyed here in the Bahamas as well, from swimming with the famously curious pigs at Big Major Cay in the Exumas to snorkeling alongside friendly nurse sharks that roam the waters around Compass Bay Island and its protected harbor, Compass Bay Marina. Divers can even head into coral-filled caves that once served as a filming site for a James Bond movie. In many of the iridescent bays, the water is only 10 to 13 feet deep, making the Bahamas ideal for families with children too.

US Virgin Islands

The US Virgin Islands offers a mix of foreign and familiar as a United States territory with no passport needed. With gorgeous bays and topography, it's one of the world's top destinations for sailing. You can visit enticing places like St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. John, Buck Island, Water Island, Lovango Cay and some 50 uninhabited cays.

The archipelago boasts a rich history, magnificent white sandy beaches, a wide range of activities and delectable cuisine. St Thomas is a favorite with Charlotte Amalie the Caribbean's most visited port offering duty-free shopping, fine dining, lively nightlife and even a zip line.

Two-thirds of St. John is a national park and a haven for nature lovers, home to what's often named among the world's most beautiful beaches, Trunk Bay. Just offshore are vibrant coral reefs providing some of the best snorkeling and diving you'll find anywhere.

Turks and Caicos

Holidays on winter yachts in Turks and Caicos can make for an easy escape. In addition to inhaling the salty sea breeze and soaking up the sun on the deck of your elegant yacht, you can try your hand at parasailing, kayak in shallow waters to view sea turtles, iguanas and flamingos, and enjoy outstanding snorkeling and diving throughout the many cays.

If you’re adventurous, Grand Turk Wall is a must for divers, starting at 25 feet below the water's surface, continuing for 7,000 more.

The Maldives

If you're looking for the utmost in luxuries and an exotic playground that's sure to please everyone for beach lovers to adventures, foodies, and underwater enthusiasts, the Maldives are ideal.

Stretched out like a string of pearls in the Indian Ocean, there are 1,200 islands here, 200 of which are inhabited and each offers something unique of its own. All boast unspoiled, soft powdery sands edged by translucent azure water. Snorkel or dive among colorful reef fish, moray eels, sea turtles, rays, dolphins and beautiful coral.

A luxury winter yachts charter is the optimal way to explore the Maldives, bringing the opportunity to island hop with temperatures consistently in the mid-80s. Plus, winter is the driest time of year with little rain and low humidity. In addition to snorkeling and diving, consider game fishing, jet skiing, or even surfing. Just about anything you can do in the water you can do here.

St. Vincent & The Grenadines

Known as the "Spice Islands," St. Vincent and the Grenadines are made up of 32 island treasures, sprinkled across the southern Caribbean in the West Indies.

With picturesque harbors, volcanic landscapes and fantasy-like beaches, it's one of the world's top sailing destinations. The island of Bequia has been a favorite among seafarers for centuries, often called "the most perfect" Caribbean isle with few crowds and one of the prettiest, most protected natural harbors.

Petit Tabac in Tobago Cays is located in this region too. A tiny, uninhabited island, it was the one you might have seen in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies where Captain Jack Sparrow was marooned with Elizabeth Swan. It's only two-thirds of a mile long but offers everything you could ever want in a deserted isle, including coconut trees lining postcard-perfect sands.
