Fractional Yacht Ownership in Americas & Caribbean
The eastern seaboard of the United States offers a myriad of magical ports steeped in a timeless elegance. Add the Caribbean to the mix for winter cruising and it becomes clear why so many yachts never leave this region; they simply follow the snowbirds north and south and north again following the respective seasons.
On it goes, because Washington and her myriad of Islands adds yet another dimension, before even mentioning the Pacific waters of the Californian coast!
The distances are vast so no passage ever need ever be the same. Cruising between New England and the Virgin Islands and vice versa offer more ports of call than anybody could possibly cover over many successive years. That just one coastline. There is an equally exciting one on the other seaboard. That’s what makes a fractional yacht so worthwhile here. Every passage and every year will bring new experiences and keep you and your family and friends wanting to come back for more, again and again.
The variety of destinations is equally as amazing as are the number of destinations. From buzzing and glitzy cruises up the Hudson River past Manhattan, or west coast whale watching, to the un-spoilt picture postcard palm fringed beaches of the Bahamas or Caribbean islands, there really is something special on offer for every occasion and for everybody.
