St Barths Yacht Charter – Island of Elegance
Eight square miles of arid, volcanic rock, St. Barths is home to an eclectic mix of iguanas, night-blooming cactus, and fabulous beaches as well as luxury yachts, designer boutiques, and celebrities. Through the vagaries of its history, St. Barths has become well known as a duty-free port and shopping mecca for globe-trotters and yachties alike. Home to descendants of the original French settlers and transplanted Europeans, this is an island with a strong, independent personality. It is certainly the most unusual of the French West Indies islands.
This sophisticated French island packs a lot into a charmingly small package. The cuisine ranks among the Caribbean’s best, and almost everything is stylish—from the chic boutiques in the capital, Gustavia, to the private red-roofed villas that dot the hillsides. You can spend the morning snorkeling or diving, try on the latest French fashions in the afternoon, watch the sunset from your private yacht in the handsome harbor, then choose from dozens of excellent restaurants for an elegant evening meal.
St Barths Yacht Charter
Private charter yachts are a very convenient way to transfer between St. Barths and St Maarten and are really part of your vacation, rather than part of the journey. You will have the opportunity to include popular stop-offs at the other Leeward Islands including incl. Antigua, Barbuda, St. Kitts, and Nevis Island.
Gustavia Port is the place to be in St. Barths and is lined with designer boutiques, world-class restaurants, and chic cafés. It is also the main yachting destination for provisioning, services, and facilities, and can accommodate up to 60 yachts of up to 200ft in its inner harbor and 100 more in the outer waters.
The main activities on St. Barths, when you aren’t dining or sunning yourself, are based around the sea. The pleasures of underwater observation are magical. The branch corals are recovered from the latest hurricanes, and the massive corals are in full bloom, with multicolored coral fish everywhere. Each bay has a reef to be explored, each islet has its majestic walls and caves. The most spectacular dives are around Pain de Sucre, an islet off Gustavia harbor, or around the small cape, l’Ane Rouge, off Colombier bay.
Most of the year, St. Barths is blessed with puffy white clouds parading a clear blue sky, and warm balmy breezes. It’s a T-shirt, shorts, and sandals kind of weather interrupted now and then by a brief tropical shower. However, from July to November, this calm and relaxed climate may be interrupted by a revolving tropical storm or hurricane. This is why we recommend December through June as the best time for chartering a yacht in St. Barths. Celebrate Christmas or the New Year; or take a romantic Spring Break with your loved one cruising the waters of this elegant Caribbean island.
Every year St. Barths plays host to a number of prestigious yachting events and sailing regattas, including the annual St. Barths Bucket in March. Take this opportunity to watch beautiful sailing yachts race in the Caribbean sunshine all while sipping a cocktail from the glorious deck of your private yacht. In the evenings take to the land for gourmet dining and envelope yourself in the buzzing atmosphere of the races.
