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 family that we booked aboard 59' Catamaran Alive for Christmas, 2016 said:
Lynne, I had planned on calling you this week to let you know how great the trip was. It exceeded our expectations and was a wonderful family trip. Doug and I commented to Noam and Dalit how much we appreciated your service and guidance through this process of planning our first but certainly not last catamaran charter. They agreed and told us you are the best! Thank you! This was the best vacation and perfect for us!

Or, consider a charter in and around St. Maarten or the Grenadines, each offering a slightly different flair.
