Top 10 Verified & Recommended – Bahamas Catamaran Yacht Charters

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.

Top 10 Bahamas Catamaran Yacht Charters:

We present those vessels having examined the trends over the previous few seasons, judging from our own experience, and feedback from previous guests, who loved those particular charters and always left positive feedback.

10- SERENDIPITY

 

Serendipity, a 62 ft luxury yacht charter catamaran is best suited for 6 adults and 2 small children in its three cabins and two bunk beds. She features an 8-person motor dinghy, 4 SUPs, also fishing and snorkeling gear.

Her two-person crew consists of US-born captain Matthew, an erstwhile professional musician and bartender, who has been sailing in the Exuma Cays for over twelve years and has become intimately familiar with some truly prime spots. His favorite place on earth to sail is the Bahamas, especially the Exumas, which showcases the clearest water in the world and every shade of blue. 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!”

9- TIGER LILY

 

TIGER LILY, features 4 cabins to accommodate 8 guests, and the rates are 34000 to 30000 USD per week (depending on high or low season) plus 4% tax and 10% VAT.

GUEST EXPERIENCE:

 

“Indi did a fantastic job of skippering the boat. He provided great recommendations when the weather made us change our itinerary and always had our safety and comfort as a priority. Tiger Lily was very comfortable for our family and her condition was excellent. The selection of water toys was endless. We thoroughly enjoyed every stop during our week at sea. Although weather conditions required us to modify our initial itinerary, the suggestions provided by Indi were perfect. Overall the trip was excellent and we hope to be able to do it again next year.”

A pure representation of luxury, YLIME is a brand new Sunreef 60 full of character.

REVE BLEU MED dials up the chartering experience by providing access to island exploration and activities -often provided at larger catamarans. REVE BLEU has an impressive water sports collection: Seabobs, towables, kites with kite sails, SUPs, kayaks, snorkeling gear, electric scooters, and electric bikes.
