Top 10 Bahamas Verified and Recommended Motor Yacht Charters with 5-Star Reviews

The Bahamas is a prime destination for private yacht charter holidays, as it has the perfect setting for a relaxing vacation with a temperate and inviting climate —over 320 days of sunshine annually. With temperatures rarely falling below 24°C (75°F), this archipelago provides an optimal environment for luxury cruising, especially during the peak season from December to April. During this period, guests can expect comfortable weather conditions, with temperatures ranging from 21°C to 27°C (70°F to 80°F), accompanied by gentle breezes and minimal hurricane risks. Despite the inherent concerns associated with the hurricane season, the advancement in yacht technology, including modern alert systems and stabilizers, ensures a secure and enjoyable journey throughout the year.

For visitors looking to enjoy the larger islands like Nassau and a peaceful vacation, it is advisable to schedule their visits outside the spring break period, which often sees an influx of college student celebrations.

Given the Bahamas’ generally calm wind conditions, motor yachts emerge as the preferred choice for exploration. These conditions are typically not enough for sailing yachts and catamarans, which rely on stronger winds for propulsion. Thus, motor yachts offer an unparalleled advantage in navigating the tranquil waters of the Bahamas with ease and comfort.

A yacht charter in the Bahamas unveils a spectrum of luxury experiences, from the secluded, crescent-shaped beaches of the Abaco Islands to the acclaimed fishing havens of Bimini. The Exumas promises a deep dive into the marvels of nature, with reefs bustling with vibrant marine life and stunning coral formations. A highlight for many visitors is the Exumas’ Big Major’s Spot, known for its captivating swimming pigs—a unique experience that continues to enchant guests. For those in pursuit of tranquility, the Out Islands offer pristine shores and secluded cruising territories. Engage in an unforgettable underwater adventure at Compass Cay, where swimming alongside the docile nurse sharks becomes a serene communion with nature.

This comprehensive offering makes the Bahamas an unparalleled choice for those seeking a bespoke luxury motor yacht charter vacation, where the beauty of untouched islands combines with the exhilaration of maritime exploration.

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.

“We just arrived home and as you can imagine everyone was very sad to leave the boat. The boat was awesome and Capitan Sean and Crew were amazing. My kids are still posting the amazing meals Chef Tom cooked and all the adults are missing the fabulous drinks that were prepared by Suzy Q and Jess. Sean, Chris , Jess and Rob (aka Dallas) did a great Job getting all our adventures in even with the wind blowing. As I told them when we left the boat is great but the Crew really made the trip something special.
Thanks for your help in arranging and we will definitely contact you for our next trip on Tail Lights.”

“Condition of the yacht? Amazing – clearly well cared for and well maintained. The photos didn’t do her justice. Was the food to your standard? Yes. The chef did a phenomenal job. He did a great job of balancing richer fine-dining with understanding we are eating his food for a week straight and every now and then you need a less-flare comfort meal. Not many chefs get that and it was appreciated. How attentive were the crew? Beyond expectation – could not have asked for more. They went above and beyond, especially with our kids. You were all amazing – you have all gained life-long customers. My family and I appreciate all of you.”

“I have had the pleasure of assisting this family’s charters for over 16 years and feel this was the best follow-up report received from them yet. They had a GRAND time! They loved every minute aboard the MILK & HONEY, especially the Captain and crew. In particular, they appreciated the itinerary, the fact that the captain shared such intimate knowledge of the area, the yacht toys were always made ready ahead of time, the food. and the manner in which the crew was so attentive to each charter member. Everything went flawlessly and their Wedding Anniversary was a success all thanks to you! Kenny, I want to thank you and your crew for all the hard work during the charter and the coordination from you and your chef leading up to the charter. It is your professionalism that helped me with another successful charter and I look forward to working with you again in the very near future. Don’t be surprised if you see these individuals again on board MILK & HONEY for another ‘holiday of fun’ in the near future.

“Dear Yvonne: I wanted to thank you for the recommendation to charter the Kashmir, our family had a wonderful time. The boat was immaculate and very comfortable for the entire family. The slide, sea bobs, jet skis, and tenders were so fun, I can’t imagine a boat with more toys to enjoy the beautiful waters. I can’t say enough about the crew!!! Captain David was so good to be with and his command of the boat and crew was amazing, having owned and visited many boats it was obvious they are very experienced, and we felt very safe. Chef Adam, Kim, Fabi, Matt, Laura, and Paul were just so much fun and helpful!! The meals were over the top, having laundry done was a special treat and the toys were crazy fun for everyone. The Tv’s and stereo system were state of the art, and we had some dancing on the top deck as well as a fashion show by my granddaughters. The boat had a super layout for our family, and we would love to return for another trip in the future. Could you please forward to Captain David and the Owner and thank them for sharing this magnificent boat with our family.”

“This trip was the dream vacation of a lifetime, planned to celebrate W’s birthday and W & C’s 60th Wedding Anniversary. Our entire immediate family of ten, nine were able to come with us and spend this dream week onboard “Sweet Escape”. It was an astounding week of togetherness, family fun, fabulous meals, beautiful sights and loving attention from the outstanding crew. A finer group of people could not be found anywhere. They anticipated our every wish and need, minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour, day-by-day. Thank you.

★★★★★

“Well we are on our way home from what was the most memorable and fun week ever! I cannot begin to thank you for steering us in the direction of NO BAD IDEAS! Truly they live up to their name. There are NO BAD IDEAS on that boat and NO was never an answer. I’m not quite sure where to begin, the boat was gorgeous, meticulous and the interiors are beautiful! The food by Chef Warren was AMAZING, he is truly a magician. We all want a Chef Warren at home! The activities that the crew planned for us were so much fun and something for everyone. They were up for new ideas and always did everything with a smile.

What I want to express to you the most, is just how fabulous this crew really is! We felt like family when we left. In fact my mother-in-law began to cry and the girls were crying as well. This crew is absolutely STELLAR! Each and every one of them are fantastic individuals, hard-working, always smiling and FUN! We had so much darn fun with them. We have been on charters before and we have never seen a crew like this. They are so close, work so well together and you can really see just how much they love their jobs. They have something really special there!

You will definitely be hearing from us again, as we told them we WILL BE BACK! I’m wondering if it would be possible for you to share our experience with the boat owner, he is coming on board this coming week. I know he knows what he has in this crew, but it is always nice to hear from someone else.”

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.

We had an amazing vacation to the BVI. Chris from DMA walked me through the process step by step the entire way. He listened to what I was looking for, answered all my questions, anticipated follow up questions, and was proactive throughout. I will certainly be using Chris and DMA again.

Louis was great from beginning to end and walked me through the whole process. He helped me find a great boat that fit within our time and cost preferences. He explained the differences between the different builds and the pros and cons. Once we selected the boat, he explained and walked me through the whole booking process, and answered all my questions. Finally, he checked in with me before, during, and after the charter to make sure everything met our expectations and addressed any concerns. I can’t recommend Louis enough if you are planning a charter and will definitely be in touch for our next trip!

William was excellent at assisting at the last minute to locate the charter. He was super responsive and professional. The Oceana was the perfect fit for our family, not only the right size, but the best capitan and chef. Umbi is an amazingly kind and warm person. He took us to amazing locations and hikes and did everything to make sure we were well taken care of. Lindsey was awesome. She worked tirelessly cooking so many delicious dishes and accommodated everyone’s dietary restrictions, from vegans, to gluten free. No small feat. Everything was perfect. The only way to really experience the BVI.

We have been lucky to charter numerous yachts in the 65m range and we found ETERNITY and her delightful crew set a new standard in the Bahamas! The food, the smiles and the service were 5 star.

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.
