Best time to charter a yacht in the Bahamas

The Bahamas is blessed with fantastic sunshine pretty much all year long. It is warm, but not too hot, and usually somewhere around the mid-to-high twenties degrees Celsius throughout. If you have ever tried jumping into the sea in Europe in winter or spring, you know that it is not something for the faint-hearted! The coldest the sea around the Bahamas gets is 25 degrees, and at the height of summer it is as high as 29 degrees, which is warmer than most indoor swimming pools.

About the Bahamas

The best kept secret of the Bahamas is the country’s sheer size and diversity. With sixteen major islands, the Bahamas is an unmatched destination, located in the world’s clearest ocean. The capital of the Bahamas and the biggest city in the country, Nassau is far from just a stepping stone to other great destinations. The town is home to art galleries and museums for the art and history lovers, as well to national parks and wetlands for the explorers.
Stretching more than 300 kilometers in length, the Andros Barrier Reef in the Bahamas is one of the biggest barrier reefs in the world – and the third largest living organism on the planet. It sits along the edge of an underwater trench called the Tongue of the Ocean, running parallel to the east coast of the island of Andros. Home to colorful exotic fish of all shapes and sizes, the reef is a popular destination for scuba divers and snorkelers.

The unique benefits of a private yacht charter in the Bahamas

The islands of the Bahamas are made for private luxury yacht cruising. A perfect choice for a vacation with family or friends, the popularity of the Bahamas is only on the rise.

Next to freedom, privacy and independence, private yacht charters will also give you a time to connect. Aboard a yacht, time passes more slowly. It's a chance to get back to nature and enjoy life's simple pleasures—like a dolphin swimming by or a spectacular sunset. Most importantly, you spend quality time with those closest to you, in one of the most sought-after destinations around the globe.

Frequently asked questions about a yacht charter in the Bahamas

What does the charter contract look like?

The majority of the industry works with standardised contracts which have been created and refined by a consortium of industry professionals called MYBA. The charter contract outlines all the variables of a specific charter, such as the yacht, price, dates and location, as well as all the terms and conditions which cover all eventualities and the relationship between the various parties to the agreement.

In addition to the charter rate, which is the cost of renting the yacht, its equipment and its crew, there are extra costs which will be charged on top. These typically include any tax due on the charter (see VAT section above) and the APA which covers everything you will consume during your charter. On a case by case basis there may be delivery fees if you prefer to book the yacht in a location different to its base. Finally, some yachts require security deposits when hosting events.

All yachts have a limitation as to the number of guests which can be accommodated on board. This relates to the rules and regulations for the safety of passengers and is determined for each yacht based on the number of berths (individual sleeping places) and safety equipment. The maximum number of guests on board is usually 12, which is dictated by the general rules for commercial vessels, although some larger yachts can accommodate up to 36 guests if they are classified as passenger ships.

The process of booking a yacht can be quite complex, between finding the right yacht from the thousands available on the market, negotiating the best rates, the contract, working out the itinerary, the most efficient tax structure and many more. Our charter agents are here to take care of all the details so that you can focus on the fun part of the trip: relaxing on board and enjoying the sea and the area you are cruising!
