Fractional Yacht Ownership in the Caribbean
The Caribbean is rightly referred to as a yachting paradise. No other yachting destination can offer the range of beautiful islands and crystal clear waters than the islands of the Caribbean Sea.
The waters are truly idyllic, the sights picture postcard perfect, and the variety of activities are endless, providing the perfect adventure and holiday on the water.
The islands themselves differ considerably, however they all offer beautiful and sheltered anchorages, palm trees, excellent marine life, and fine white sandy beaches with crystal clear waters.
Famed islands like the Virgin Islands, St Barths, Antigua, Barbados, St Lucia, St Martin and the Grenadines are all synonymous with palm trees, sandy beaches and great yachting! The character of the local people likewise varies from the charming and unspoiled modest Dominican, to the well-to-do and modern French of Martinique.
One of the key aspects of being on Caribbean Islands is to “Chill” and adopt the principle of “Island Time” enjoying the easy-going and relaxed way of life in these tropical islands.
