The Bahamas is a large archipelago that’s just a 90-minute flight from the coast of Florida. Charter in the Bahamas to follow the path of ancient pirates, visiting the low-lying Abaco and Exuma island chains with their sparkling sands and shallow, azure water. Abaco has 120 miles of cays and islands, showcasing some of the finest beaches, sheltered anchorages, coves and British colonial architecture. Head to the 365 cays of the Exumas during your Bahamas yacht charter and stroll the famous sandbar, explore endless pristine beaches or sail a magnificent marine park, witnessing all sorts of nature’s wonders including the world-famous swimming pigs. While in the Exumas you’ll be able to island hop to the famous Big Major Cay (AKA Pig Beach, known for its swimming pigs), Norman’s Cay (once owned by Pablo Escobar and the site of a sunken airplane), and Thunderball Grotto (made famous by the James Bond film, Thunderball).

In the Bahamas, crewed catamaran charters are the ideal charter yacht to explore the archipelago, as their low drafts enable you to navigate the shallow waters and anchor only meters off desert island white sand beaches. The perfect platform for family and friends, a crewed catamaran charter yacht boasts plenty of space for sunbathing, dining, and relaxing.

Where to Go on Your Motor Yacht Charter in the Bahamas?

Most of our charters start and end in Nassau, the Capital city of The Bahamas and where the airport is located. After leaving Nassau most of our clients choose a route heading south along the Exumas, stopping at locations such as Highborne Cay, Norman’s Cay, Warderick Wells Cay, and Staniel Cay, and then doing an anticlockwise loop up to Eleuthera before ending in Nassau again at the end of their Bahamas yacht charter.

Having examined the trends over the previous few seasons, we present these 10 Catamarans available for charter in the Bahamas. These choices are based on our own experience, and feedback from previous guests, who loved these particular charters and always left positive feedback.

Chef/ mate Jennica is from Sweden, and has been travelling and learning new things all over the world, including cooking, which she explores to perfection aboard Serendipity.

 

GUEST EXPERIENCE

“From the first meeting with our captain and first mate, we knew we were in good hands. Jennica’s food and love of the ocean made her a huge hit with all, especially my nieces that are 9 and 13. Movie nights on the deck were a huge hit but snorkeling took it to a whole new level. They took care of all our needs without us even noticing, they made it seamless. We have already started saving for our next trip!”

The 55 Bali was great as we were the first paying customers. Beautiful boat with plenty of room. The Captain and first mate were great. Food was top notch and so good that we opted to not do 1 shore dinner and just ate on the boat. We saw and did everything that we set out to see. I would repeat in a heartbeat.

Communication was the key to our successful trip. Chris at DMA Yachting kept us informed about what to expect, upcoming payments, etc. He was on top of the one hiccup we had and really turned a negative into a positive. Would definitely us them again.

Frequenty Asked Questions

When is the best time to go on a Bahamas yacht charter?

The optimal time to charter a motor yacht in the Bahamas aligns with the region’s peak season, spanning from late November to early May. During these months, the Bahamas experience mild temperaturesminimal rainfall, and favorable sea conditions, creating an ideal setting for a seamless and enjoyable yachting experience. This timeframe ensures that charter clients can fully appreciate the stunning beauty of the Bahamas, explore its diverse islands, and indulge in the pleasures of cruising in optimal weather conditions.

Make sure to book your Bahamas yacht charter well in advance. Ideally, you would inquire about your coming charter 12 months in advanceWHY? The best motor yachts are often fully booked long in advance and it’s not unusual to see popular dates booked 2 summers ahead for a Bahamas yacht charter. Inquiring less than 6 months ahead often means that your first choice is unavailable for charter.

Where should I start my Bahamas yacht charter?

Most of our charters start and end in Nassau, The Capital city of The Bahamas. This is where the airport is located, and it is here you will find the best provisioning to get ready for your Bahamas yacht charter.

After leaving Nassau most of our clients choose a route heading south along the Exumas, stopping at locations such as Highborne Cay, Norman’s Cay, Warderick Wells Cay, and Staniel Cay, and then doing an anticlockwise loop up to Eleuthera before ending in Nassau again at the end of their Bahamas yacht charter.
