An extraordinary number of superb luxury yachts are available for charter all over the world with many people now looking to plan a summer vacation in 2022. Many great charter yachts can be found either in the gorgeous bays of the Bahamas or the historic harbors of New England. During the summer months, it’s easy to notice the appeal of both. From idyllic beaches and a vibrant underwater world to quirky art galleries and a charming coastal setting, there is plenty to explore on a luxury yacht.
The home of a leisurely sailing, luxury yacht charter in the Bahamas archipelago is the perfect opportunity to experience some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Whether you’re enjoying the colonial charm and scenic views of Abacos or heading out to pristine Exumas, the ubiquitous pristine beaches and crystal waters are a year-round yachting haven. Choose a luxury yacht with a range of watersports, an experienced crew, and superb amenities, which is a recipe for success. When the sun goes down, a dedicated chef who can prepare mouthwatering dishes will provide the perfect end to a busy day of kayaking or jet skiing. There is certainly no better way to explore the Bahamas than on the water with the endless flow of island hotspots to discover during an itinerary completely tailored to your requirements.
Hot spot: Nassau
The charming capital of Nassau is dotted with light-coloured buildings and grand forts, surrounded by vast stretches of velvety beaches that include offshore coral reefs. This is simply a prime location for water activities like windsurfing, snorkeling and snorkeling, where charter yachts take advantage of every opportunity. Global marinas and an international airport ensure that Nassau and Paradise Island are two of Lyford Cay’s premier upscale shopping centers, exclusive casinos and a vibrant beach scene.
Hot Spot: Abaco Islands
Home to some of the finest sailing spots in the Bahamas and famous for its bone fishing, Abaco is blessed with turquoise waters and white sandy beaches. Include Treasure Cay in your rental itinerary, where a private marina and golf course are a popular hub, or visit Little Harbor, where perfect sunsets constantly inspire local artists. In Abacos you will not find casinos or shopping malls, only quiet restaurants on the waterfront surrounded by vast natural beauty. This is the place to check in to the island and enjoy the absolute peace.
Possibly one of the most sought-after sailing destinations in the world, Exumas’ sailing spots are upscale. The meeting point for visiting yachts is Staniel Cay Center, while the Thunderball Grotto is a must for the unique diving experience inside the sunlit cave system. Wildlife thrives in Exumas, with iguanas-clad beaches for cruising in Land and Sea Park, and the chance to meet friendly nurse sharks at Compass Cay and local swimming pigs at Big Major Cay.
Hot yacht: Samara
With a height of 80 degrees (24.4 metres) and a unique appearance that combines the elegance of a superyacht with the luxurious glow of a resort style, this is an expedition-ready catamaran, created specifically for adventure. Demonstrating excellent sea-keeping qualities, agile handling and large deck spaces, she is prepared for a long time aboard, making sailing around the world a straightforward affair. Packed with the advanced technology and comprehensive amenities typically found on a large single-hull yacht, SAMARA’s multi-level design is ideal for great island sailing.

Martha’s generosity is, simply put, poetic. Exuding an elegant, laid-back feel, it’s the centerpiece for noteworthy shots framing Aquina’s prominent mud cliffs.
