Best Yachts for Small Group Charters

Over the years, we have found that most people that charter multiple yachts to sail together on a vacation prefer yachts that are similar in size and luxury. That way, everyone gets a comparable yacht charter experience, and no one ends up feeling that one of the yachts is better than the other. We consider that factor when recommending the “best” yachts for small group charters.

Sailing Catamarans – Ideal for Landlubbers, Families and First Timers

Sailing catamarans are spacious, stable, and loaded with watersports toys. We especially recommend our newer flybridge cats that have a second outside deck which offers more room for people to spread out in addition to amazing panoramic views both under sail and at anchor. A key factor in chartering a group of cats is to find crews that work well as a team and offer a similar level of service and cuisine.

Two of our favorite catamaran designs are by the same French builder – Lagoon. They offer a 56-foot cat that accommodates 6-8 guests and a 62’ cat that sleeps 6-10 guests. In the Caribbean, we have 16 Lagoon 62s which can host a group of up to 120 guests and 8 Lagoon 56s which can host a group of up to 54.

If you’re a group of couples all paying your share of the charter, then sailing catamarans are ideal as they are one of the only fleets with equal cabins on each yacht. And if you’re Nana and Grumpy paying for the whole family, then we have a few cats that have large master cabins.

Power Catamarans – Ideal for People That Enjoy Motor Yachts

Power catamarans are a relatively new entry to the charter fleet, and because their superstructure is higher than a sailing catamaran, they tend to offer more interior space. You can get from Point A to Point B more quickly so you can generally cover more distance in a week’s time than on a sailing catamaran.

In an area like the Virgin Islands where everything is so close together, this is a moot point. But in the Bahamas where distances between islands are longer, it’s a great option.

To date, Sunreef and Horizon are the biggest builders of charter power cats, and currently, we have approximately 15 power cats worldwide.

Superyachts – Ideal for Those Seeking the Best of the Best

Superyachts, by nature, are designed to be one-of-a-kind, show stopping, turn every head in the harbor vessels. If you are chartering two or more and you want them to be similar, we will recommend a small fleet of superyachts that offer similar 5-star luxury, service, cuisine, toys and amenities.

Or perhaps, you want to change it up. We had one large multi-generational charter paid for by the grandparents. They chartered a superyacht so that they could host the entire 30-person family onboard for some dockside Happy Hours and buffet dinners. They also chartered two large catamarans – one was for all the teen cousins and the other was for the adult grandchildren who had small families of their own. Each day, the yacht captains created an agenda to suit all preferences. One of the cats created a watersports regatta; the superyachts towed tender cast off with the sport fishing enthusiasts; the superyacht remained at anchor and hosted a spa and relaxation day; the other cat sailed to a nearby port for a historical tour and winery visit… something for everyone.
