We are now on the other side of the Adriatic, in northern Croatia. We looked at many different charter yachts based in Split. Two were getting ready to receive our clients! Split is an interesting mixture of modern marinas and ancient history. There is a Roman palace in the center of town, right on the waterfront. This was built by one of the ...

We are taking 16 days to re-visit some of the popular charter destinations in the Eastern Mediterranean, starting in N.E. Italy. Venice is like no other city in the world and is well worth a visit. There are some bareboat companies based here and you can start your crewed charter from the city, but any attractions outside the lagoon are a long sail ...

This picture of the Antigua Show at night, taken by Lucy Tulloch (thank you Jim Long, Caribbean Boating) gives a different view of this incredible show. With enough generating power to light a small town, the yachts illuminated the night Antigua sky and were visible for miles around. Of the almost 100 yachts in the show, more than half were over 100 feet ...

When it comes to flotillas, there are few operators who do a better job than the company who pioneered the concept – Sunsail. Sunsail is a well known and ...

We introduced Dream Yacht Charters nearly a year ago as a new addition to the bareboat charter companies in The Caribbean. At the time, Dream Yacht, a company that started in the Seychelles and quickly grew to several Mediterranean locations, only operated bases in Martinique and Guadeloupe. In November, Dream Yacht opened operations in the British Virgin Islands. They have taken over the ...

It’s great to hear from old friends. ‘Lady Anne II’ was a popular yacht in The Caribbean, before Patrick and Pascale started living their circumnavigation dream. They spent the summer of 2008 in The Society Islands in the Pacific (Tahiti, Raiatea, Bora Bora) and are presently in Australia for the next six months. They then plan to sail to Thailand for the December ...
