What’s the right boat for your yacht getaway?

You’ve picked your dream yacht getaway for the 2020 holiday season, now—what’s the right boat for you? 

While ringing in Christmas and the new year, you can sail the Caribbean in complete luxury and comfort with a fully-crewed yacht charter. You’ll enjoy sailing with a private chef, a skipper, and a host/stewardess, so you can celebrate the start of the new year without ever lifting a finger. 

Looking for a little more privacy? A bareboat sailing holiday may be the yacht getaway for you. With a bareboat charter, you’ll set sail with a fully-equipped yacht, where you are the captain and every morning can be a new, spontaneous adventure! 

This holiday season, you can socialize in comfort, safety, and privacy with a yacht charter for a sailing getaway. Some of our favorites include the Lagoon 42 and the Lagoon 450F; both are medium-sized catamarans with four cabins and four bathrooms each, perfect for groups of up to twelve people. 

We also love the Lagoon 50 and the Lagoon 52F. Both are elegant, comfortable catamarans that are spacious enough to accommodate large groups (i.e., up to 11-12 people), but they can also be your go-tos if you’re a smaller party or couple looking for a yacht charter with more space and comfort on board.

Not sure if chartering a whole yacht is your style? Don’t worry—you can still enjoy Christmas sailing in the Caribbean islands! Another great option for a holiday yacht getaway is a cabin cruise on board a large, luxury catamaran. 

With a cabin cruise, you can rent a cabin on board a large boat, such as the Lagoon 620. Perfect for couples seeking a winter sun escape, a cabin cruise means you can enjoy the luxury and opulence of a fully-crewed charter without the cost of chartering an entire yacht! 

Ready to ring in 2021? With a yacht getaway, you can get the winter sun escape you need, without having to worry about traveling for too long or too far.
