					A Private Yacht Charter

Taking a sailing yacht charter used to be the pursuit of the rich and famous. Did you
know that you could also take a private yacht charter for as little as $1,000/week, all
inclusive? Just grab four or five of your closest friends, choose your destination
online and go! After all, you have worked hard all year and you deserve this time off.
The benefit of private yacht charters is that you will have complete freedom to stop
and go as you please, rather than being hustled along by some generic cruise ship

A Mediterranean private yacht charter vacation can take you to Greece, Croatia,
Turkey, Spain, France and Italy. These destinations are culturally rich with beautiful
beaches, historic architecture and savory regional cuisine. Generally, travelers will
come during the summer months of July and August when the days are warm and
sunny and the breezes are light, although the weather is still seasonal from April to
October, and the crowds are thinner. Charter boats traveling to the Mediterranean
include power boats, luxury yachts, catamaran, sailboats and the bareboat charter.

For those chilly winter months, why not take a private yacht charter to the warm
Caribbean waters? Travelers come to the Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands,
Jamaica, the Florida Keys and the Bahamas for the white sandy beaches, the pleasant
trade winds, turquoise waters, West Indian cuisine and fun activities year-round.
There are more than 100 Virgin Islands, offering a plethora of coves for snorkeling,
swimming, scuba diving, surfing, marine-life watching and lounging. On the shores,
you will enjoy dancing, frozen blender drinks, crafts from local artisans and the
dramatic mountain peak topography. In the Bahamas, you can feast on spicy cuisine,
fish on beautiful beaches, snorkel underwater grottos, gaze upon a habitat of 60,000
flamingos, star gaze the midnight skies, dance in nightclubs and splash around at the
world-renowned Atlantis water-park and culture center. A sailing charter in the
Cayman Islands will whisk you away to the famous Seven Mile Beach (one of the
best in the world!), the historic Pedro St. James castle, scuba diving shipwrecks in
Cayman Brac, bird watching the rare red-footed Booby on Little Cayman and
partaking in the museums and shops of George Town. Nothing beats the winter blues
like a Caribbean yacht excursion!

Now that you are ready to take that private yacht charter, you are probably wondering
where to find one. All of these sailing vacation destinations are available at
www.inthewild.org, www.1800sailaway.com, www.yacht-charters.tv and
www.internationalyachtchartergroup.com. The cost of private yacht charters vary
greatly. Prices depend upon the time of year, the type and size of the yacht, crew
requirements and the number of people you bring. Keep in mind that power yachts
cost more than sailing yachts due to fuel costs. You can find week-long charters for as
little as $1,000 per person for a group of four or $1,800 per couple, including your
boat, crew, captain, chef, food and drinks included. Great deals can be found on small
intimate cabin charters if you don't mind a handful of other people. As well, trips
during the off season may save you 10% or more.
