Cruise the world’s most spectacular waters on your yachting vacation.

We can arrange your crewed yachting vacation in any of the world’s most glamorous cruising grounds. We know all of them and can give you an idea of what it’s like to cruise in them. We can also advise you regarding ports of arrival and departure, as well as what to expect for local customs and visas.

The Caribbean and cruising were made for each other. The tropical climate, blue water, white sandy beaches, soft breezes, and palm trees combine to create a true paradise. Come for the delightful local color, unlimited water sports, duty-free shopping, exciting casinos, and intriguing history. Enjoy the laid-back pace while being pampered by your crew.

The Mediterranean
When you charter a yacht on the legendary Cote d’Azur, you’ll visit the world’s most fashionable ports, browse in world-class boutiques, and perhaps attend the Cannes Film Festival or Monaco’s Grand Prix. Cruising east into the Adriatic, Ionian, and Aegean seas takes you to gorgeous Greek islands, Turkey’s bazaars, and the spectacular coast and islands of Croatia.

Maine, New England
The New England Coast, easy to access, has unsurpassed cruising grounds. On the rocky, spruce-clad Maine Coast you will visit fishing harbors and fashionable summer resorts, or drop anchor in harbors where yours is the only boat. Lobsters are king of the menu, and you can enjoy a feast mere hours after the fishermen have plucked them from the sea. The sandy dunes and bustling villages of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard offer activities that will please everyone in the family. New England’s is a short season -- mid June to mid September -- and the weather conditions can vary, but the sailing is second to none, and each of the hundreds of harbors is unique.

Pacific Northwest, Alaska
Protected waterways among scenic San Juan Islands, a stop at cosmopolitan Seattle, anchorages by mountain-crowned islands -- all this and more describes a cruise in the waters of the Pacific Northwest. Chances are good you’ll see whales, eagles, and other magnificent wildlife. Take the Northwest Passage to Alaska, and be awed by glaciers and the pure scope of the vast landscape. Everywhere you cruise, dine to your heart’s content on salmon and other fresh seafood delicacies.

South Pacific
Explore some of the hundreds of islands that make up French Polynesia, drop anchor at postcard-perfect atolls, visit local artisans, and enjoy traditional dance performances and barbecues on the beach. Cruise the stunning islands of New Zealand or sail into the magnificent port of Sydney, Australia. The vast South Pacific offers an entire world of possibilities, from remote tropical islands to busy modern harbors.
