Bahamas, Florida, USA East & West Coast
Glamor and lifestyle in Miami, the picturesque island chain of the Florida Keys, cities like St. Petersburg or Naples and beaches on the Gulf Coast are the attractions of the Sunshine State Florida. Coral reefs, pink beaches and 22 national parks in the world of 700 islands and cays make the Bahamas a fantastic cruising area. Ancient seafaring traditions, quaint villages with picturesque architecture and a gorgeous summer cruising ground await you in New England on the US east coast. Many luxury charter yachts and super yachts, both sail and motor yachts, are cruising in these regions and allow the perfect charter holiday.
Florida has the longest season of all yacht charter destinations in the USA. Homeport of most luxury and super yachts is Fort Lauderdale. From here, the route often leads initially to Miami: South Beach and the Art Deco district are well worth a visit and lure with galleries, bars and clubs, as well as the Calle Ocho with the flair of Cuba. Exploring Key Biscayne and Coconut Grove, discovering the Everglades aboard a hovercraft, enjoying the marvellous islands of the Florida Keys with their beautiful beaches and reefs of Key Largo, walking on Hemingway’s footsteps in Key West, sipping a sundowner overlooking the Sunset Keys – much more diversity can hardly be lived during a cruise aboard a luxury charter yacht. Natural parks on the islands of Sanibel and Captiva, shopping and nightlife in St. Petersburg, Naples or Tampa, beaches – the Gulf Coast of Florida has a lot to offer as well.
Throughout Florida, numerous marinas offer a perfect maritime infrastructure for luxury yacht charters. Fort Lauderdale is often the starting point for luxury yacht charter cruises to the Bahamas. And more recently, Cuba is finally open for luxury charter yachts, only a short crossing away – guests can start their cruise to Cuba from Fort Lauderdale as well.
Pink beaches, idyllic tranquility and natural wonders in the south at the Exumas, casinos, nightlife, urban bustle and shopping paradise in the capital Nassau and on the central islands, again dream beaches and British colonial charme at the Abacos: The Bahamas are enchantingly beautiful, very safe , a little British, and a perfect luxury yacht charter destination. Due to the subtropical climate they are an interesting destination all year long, although it may be a little cooler in the winter, a little rainy in August and September. The cruising area between the Caribbean and the Atlantic Ocean includes more than 700 islands and islets. Numerous national parks protect sea and land – and the more than 2,000 coral reefs with an impressive underwater world.
Most people live in New Providence in and around the capital Nassau. The largest islands are Andros, Abaco and Grand Bahama in the north and Inagua in the south. Most luxury charter yachts and super yachts have their base in Nassau – from there the most popular cruising routes lead to the Exumas with the vast Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, and / or to the Abacos. Also in Marsh Harbour on Abaco luxury yachts and catamarans are based. The distances between islands and sandy cays, beautiful bays and fascinating snorkel spots with colorful corals are short. One of the most beautiful underwater spots in the Abacos is the Marine Park at Fowl Cay, New England Charm is waiting in New Plymouth or Hope Town.
In Newport, the sailing mecca of the US, where once the legendary America’s Cup Races were sailed today with its luxury charter yachts in the summer and in the Indian Summer has its home port. The New England states, classic summer retreat of American money aristocracy, are today an extremely popular cruising area. Super yachts with the high society on board are cruising in Rhode Iceland, off the coast of Massachusetts in Cape Code with the lively city of Provincetown, Nantucket Sound, on the islands of Nantucket Iceland, Martha’s Vineyard or Cuttyhunk or in Connecticut before New Haven and Long Iceland with the Hamptons.
Long beaches, forests, wild dunes, rugged cliffs: Nature here has as much to offer as the culture with many historical districts, architecture with typical wooden houses and stately mansions, quaint fishing villages, old wooden boats as evidence of American boatbuilders tradition – the history of New England is here very much alive. The presence of bars, clubs and many culinary delights no less. Clam chowder, lobster and other delicacies – whether in the harbor restaurant or at dinner on board, New England kitchen leaves nothing to be desired. And those who have time to sailing further south during the luxury yacht charter vacation can explore Maryland and Virginia, the Chesapeake Bay and cities like Annapolis, Norfolk or Virginia Beach.
Perhaps less known outside the US, but no less exciting is the west coast of the United States as a cruising ground for luxury yacht charter. The Pacific beaches of southern California near San Diego, Los Angeles with the huge harbour Marina del Rey, the Bay of San Francisco, Washington State with the San Juan Islands, in Canada the picturesque coast of British Columbia with Vancouver Island and many other islands as well as the wild coast of Alaska offer numerous fascinating cruising destinations.
