Explore the Finest Destinations in the World on your Yacht Charter

Exploring the world in a luxurious yacht charter through tropical destinations might sound like only a dream to most people. But nothing could be further from the truth. With Boatsetter, all of the world’s most luxurious destinations are now easily within reach by way of the open ocean. Just get together a crew of six or seven of your best friends, and you’ll find that you can rent a yacht for a very reasonable price. Once you have the boat, the next question is deciding where to go! Here are just a few of our top destinations to enjoy a long and relaxing holiday on a yacht charter, or if you are so inclined, on a party yacht.

Visit all the Islands of the Caribbean!

If you think of yachting in the Caribbean, you might think of year-round warm weather, powdery beaches, turquoise waters, and excellent fishing. With islands like Jamaica, St. Kitts, Antigua, Grand Cayman and lots of others, you can relax on your yacht charter and visit each of the islands in turn. Enjoy delicious food and drinks while relaxing in the wide-open ocean.

Jamaica is one of the biggest islands in the Caribbean and there are so many day trips that you can easily take. For example, how about a yacht charter trip beginning in Montego Bay? You can sail up to Negril on the northern side of the island through the clean waters on a brand new 53 ft luxury catamaran, and then return to Montego Bay at sunset for a few cocktails in the harbor. Or, if you head in the other direction, you can visit Ocho Rios, which is also only a short sail away from Montego Bay.

The Caribbean is one of the most popular cruising destinations in the world. It is quite easy to reach from Florida and cruising from island to island on a high-end yacht rental can be the trip of a lifetime. Keep in mind that the Caribbean is a big place, and the wind can sometimes be very strong, so plan your trip according to how much time you have. If you sail from the British Virgin Islands to St. Martin, for example, you may need to plan an overnight trip just to complete the journey. Sailing from St. Kitts to Antigua, for example, is a lot shorter. If you set off for about a week on the water, you’ll be able to get the flavor of the islands but you will need a much longer time to really experience everything.

Explore the fantastic beaches of Mexico!

For most Americans, a trip to Mexico is accessible because it is just a short flight away. Mexico offers so many boating options, whether you prefer the Pacific Ocean side or the Caribbean side. It is easy to sail between all the small seaside villages and enjoy all the authentic Mexican experiences that they offer, or even to dock your yacht charter at a modern marina in a bustling city like Cancun, which offer all kinds of nightlife and relaxation options.

If you start your yacht charter in Cancun, you can sail up and down the Mexican coast and visit the island of Cozumel. Dock your boat in Cozumel and stroll around the interesting downtown area of San Miguel. There are some incredible deals on jewelry like tanzanite rings if you look around the shops a little. Visit a souvenir shop and pick up an authentic Mexican blanket, and enjoy icy margaritas and spicy oysters in one of the many dockside bars or restaurants in San Miguel.

Gather your crew together for an incredible yacht rental vacation and guide your perfect yacht charter through some of the most intriguing islands in Mexico! At Boatsetter, we offer our boat rental services in many of the most popular boating destinations in Mexico, like Cancun and Puerto Vallarta. Mexico is a very big place, so you don’t need to choose only one place to visit, but you do need to start somewhere!

Enjoy ultra-luxurious cruising through Ibiza and the Balearic Islands!

The Mediterranean is another favorite location to rent a yacht. It also has a perfect year-round climate and there are plenty of charming places to stay. The Balearic Islands of Spain are made up of four main islands: Ibiza, Mallorca, Menorca, and Formentera. Out of all these, Ibiza is the place to have a wild party, but it can get a little too popular, so cruising through the other Balearic Islands can be far more relaxing. Mallorca has lots of beach resorts and sheltered coves where you can dock your boat rental and visit stone-built villages like Pollença and Fornalutx. Menorca and Formentera also feature endless beaches and turquoise waters with attractive pine trees lining the coast.

When you are out on the water in places like the Mediterranean, it is often just you and the open ocean. Even if some of the other islands might seem a long sail away when you are looking at nautical maps, you might find that you can travel at a fast clip and often you can easily visit four or five countries just in one day! When you are cruising through the Balearic Islands, you are already close to France, Italy, Greece, and lesser-known Mediterranean countries like Cyprus, where you can relax on cobblestone streets and enjoy a glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice. You’ll meet people from all over the world, so your trip should be a truly global one. Just set sail through the Mediterranean and simply pull your yacht charter up to dock whenever you feel like getting back on land.

Travel in Luxury and Style

As we mentioned earlier, you now have so many options when it comes to reserving a specific type of yacht charter to sail through the Caribbean. Thinking about a party yacht? Many of our bigger models can actually be more affordable than hotels if you are able to split the costs with your friends. Boat rentals can be found for a range of budgets and you can make your reservations for as long or as short of a trip as you like. Try to gather together as many of your friends as possible, and start browsing through our site to find the perfect party yacht for your Caribbean yachting adventure.

While it might be important to choose a large and luxurious yacht charter if you travel with lots of other people, the most important thing about enjoying luxury boat rentals is your destination itself. Each of the wonderful locations described above feature unique cultures and incredible scenery. There are so many videos available now on Youtube, so just choose your destination and start watching some of them. You will be sure to get inspiration for your trip very quickly!
