The arc of Caribbean islands is as diverse as they are beautiful, with immaculate stretches of pink sandy beaches, crystalline turquoise waters, and a vibrant culture. Cruising by yacht allows you to experience these islands as they are meant to be experienced – from the blue waters that surround them, anchoring at your leisure to imbibe in the amiable vibe of this tropical Eden, then back to your private yacht to celebrate just how good it is to be where you are.
While our charters most often embark from the beautiful port of Antigua, we can easily pick you up in the British Virgin Islands or elsewhere. From there, we’ll plot a vacation that plunges you into the many wonders of the Caribbean - from secluded romance to family fun, from thrill-seeking adventure to long, luxuriated days basking in the sun, from its rich culinary heritage to a lively nightlife.
Charter Eros for the 30th Anniversary of the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta in April 2017. Race with our experienced crew among the scores of vintage yachts that descend upon Antigua Harbor for this singular & historic event.

Bermuda - America's Cup
In June 2017, the world’s greatest sailors will descend upon Bermuda’s Great Sound for the legendary 35th America’s Cup, presented by Louis Vuitton. What better place to experience this thrillingly dramatic ocean race than from the water aboard your private yacht, as 5 rival teams vie fiercely to unseat current world champions, Oracle Team USA.
Spectator lanes are filling up quickly, so we encourage travelers to reserve soon to take part in this premier world-class event.
When the race is not on, you’ll find plenty of time to discover the wonders of mystical Bermuda, from the pink sand beaches of its south shore to it hidden coves, dramatic cliffs or snorkeling in its outer reefs that are only accessible by smaller boats. We’ll make sure you also have time to check out the team bases or take in a concert in America’s Cup Village at the Royal Naval Dockyard.

The proximity of New England’s magical harbors and towns make it a sailor’s paradise. New England comes to life in summer, when its coastal enclaves take to the outdoors to celebrate the spirit of Americana with long days & warm summer breezes, capped by the rich colors of the changing autumn leaves.
Depart from Newport, Rhode Island and sail to Block Island, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard & Cape Cod, beloved for its rocky coastline dotted with classic lighthouses, quaint colonial towns, and quiet beaches fringed by archetypal dunes flecked with long grasses.
Alternately, set sail from Boston or Kennebunkport and cruise the jagged and breathtakingly beautiful coast of Maine, dropping anchor in its secluded outer islands to explore uninhabited beaches and hidden coves, capping the day with a local lobster bake.
Your itinerary can be designed to coincide with one of New England’s many summer music or film festivals, from Newport’s Jazz Festival to the Nantucket Film Festival. Perhaps you’ll anchor on the 4th of July to watch spectacular New England fireworks from your private deck.
Breakfast in one paradise. Dinner in another.
