Christmas & New Years Charters in the BVI

Crewed yacht charters during the weeks of Christmas & New Years are two of the most popular crewed charter weeks during the entire year.

Crewed yacht charters that fall during the holiday weeks of Christmas and New Years are two of the most popular crewed charter weeks during the entire year. Specifically, the week of New Years is undoubtedly the most popular week of the year and the BVI is by far the most popular destination choice to celebrate New Years in the Caribbean. Nearly every yacht within the crewed charter fleet will eventually get a booking and the most popular yachts and crews will book up extremely early.

Holiday Charters Frequently Asked Questions

When to book a holiday charter? Quite simply, it's never too early to book a Christmas or New Years charter. Booking your charter at least one year in advance, if not further in advance, is often necessary to secure the yacht of your choice.

What about holiday surcharges? Most yachts add a standard 10% surcharge for these popular holiday weeks. Some yachts charge an even higher flat rate.

Are there particular date ranges for these charters? For the upcoming holidays, Christmas charters would typically end by December 26 or 27 and New Years charters would typically not begin before December 27 or 28. However, please do not hesitate to contact us for holiday charters outside of these typical date ranges. For charters that cover December 25 and 26 as well as December 31 and January 1, those charters must be 10 days minimum in length (by yacht approval only as well).

What is the minimum length of a holiday charter? Holiday charters must be a minimum of one week. Clients can charter for less than a week, but will have to pay for a full week's rate.

What about a holiday charter outside of the BVI? Charters outside the BVI are available during the holidays, but a large majority of the yachts do mandate a charter within the BVI due to this destinations popularity. Yachts with availability outside the BVI typically fall at higher price points.

A group of friends that we booked aboard 56' Catamaran Altesse for New Years 2015/2016 said:

The entire experience was magical and exceeded even our already very high expectations. So, first things first, thank you (and Joe) for taking my call on Sunday in November and guiding us to this wonderful trip. We will certainly be on board again and will contact you for the next trip. We will also strongly recommend you and Joe to our friends who might want to take such a trip in coming years.
