Caribbean Sailing Vacations by Ed Hamilton
Chartering a Yacht with Crew

luxury yacht charter
CREWED YACHT CHARTERS often cost no more than a cruise.

Imagine a crewed yacht vacation, sailing with your friends in comfort, with first class food and service, but you get to choose the menu and where and when you sail.

Crewed yacht chartering is all about exploring just one group of islands and visiting villages and beaches that are often inaccessible to cruise ships or hotel guests.
Tell us a bit about your plans so we can suggest some luxury crewed yachts that would be suitable.

How we find the most suitable boat and crew for your party.

We carefully match you with a fully crewed private yacht that fits your requirements and a crew that has similar interests. Rather than confusing you with long lists of boats, we send you an initial selection of yachts, based on the preferences you give us. This selection will contain our own independent, detailed description of the boat and crew, as well as each boat's brochure.

We then discuss the features that you like in both boat and crew, sending you more selections as necessary. We have more than 1600 luxury crewed yachts for charter on file and only recommend boats that we know personally and feel would be suitable. With a crewed yacht charter, selecting the right crew is often more important than the boat.
What a luxury crewed yacht charter costs.

Prices typically run between $1,500 and $3,000 per person for a week and normally include all meals and an open bar. The meals are prepared to your preferences and are often comparable to the best restaurants in the area.

Call us at 800 621 7855, or show us what you are looking for using the interactive Request Form. We will put together a selection of suggested yachts and crews that fit your requirements, which you can view on-line or in a mailed package.
