The pristine beaches, crystal clear waters and vibrant cultures of the Caribbean, the Maldives and Dubai are the places to be when it comes to some all-important winter sun.

Whether you are simply seeking solace and to switch off from your busy life or wish to try a new way to celebrate or escape over the festive season, a luxury yacht is the way to do it. With a dedicated captain and crew, including a private chef, guiding and serving you for the duration of your trip, the service you will receive is second to none.

With thousands of options globally, and any length of break possible, from one day to as long as you would like, a luxury yacht escape offers a truly personalised and bespoke way to indulge in a vacation this winter. 

Discover our top six destinations for luxury yacht charters this winter below:

The British Virgin Islands

The British Virgin Islands (BVIs) are a firm favourite among yachting enthusiasts new and old, thanks to their consistent trade winds, sheltered anchorages, and diverse collection of islands. Explore the surreal beauty of The Baths on Virgin Gorda, enjoy a Painkiller cocktail at the Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke, or partake in thrilling water sports and diving adventures. With numerous moorings, brilliant beach clubs and more, the BVIs cater to all.

The Bahamas

Just a stone’s throw away from the vibrant city of Nassau lie the Exumas, a slice of heaven on Earth. This Bahamian archipelago boasts 365 islands and cays, each more enchanting than the last. A must-visit destination for those in search of a true taste of the Caribbean, the Exumas offer crystal-clear waters, powdery-white beaches, and underwater caves to explore. Don’t forget to swim with the famous Exuma pigs at Big Major Cay, and discover the natural beauty of Thunderball Grotto, featured in James Bond films.

Antigua & Barbuda

Antigua, often hailed as the sailing capital of the Caribbean, beckons with its azure waters and spirited culture. Winter brings the prestigious Antigua Sailing Week, a regatta that attracts sailors and spectators from around the world. Drop anchor at Falmouth or English Harbour, where you can explore the historic Nelson’s Dockyard and indulge in delectable Caribbean cuisine. The combination of racing excitement and laid-back luxury makes Antigua and Barbuda an ideal destination for all.


With its volcanic landscapes, lush rainforests, and vibrant Creole culture, this French Caribbean gem offers an unforgettable experience.

The island’s diverse activities range from hiking Mount Pelée to relaxing on pristine beaches and immersing yourself in local markets. Martinique’s pleasant winter weather, steady trade winds, and warm hospitality make it a captivating yachting haven, promising a memorable escape from winter’s chill.

The Maldives

This Indian Ocean jewel offers a mesmerising blend of white-sand beaches, crystal-clear waters, and overwater bungalows. Aboard your yacht, explore the atolls, snorkel with vibrant marine life, and indulge in world-class diving. The Maldives beckons with its luxury resorts, romantic sunsets, and an unparalleled sense of tranquility. Winter here means balmy temperatures, calm seas, and an unforgettable yachting experience in a tropical paradise like no other.
