Here are the best yacht charters for winter 2023/2024, whether you are looking for a last-minute Christmas celebration, somewhere hot to ring in the New Year, an adventure to lift the January blues, or a tropical holiday to look forward to.

There’s still time to book a Christmas and New Year charter

Be quick and you could be diving into the turquoise waters of the Bahamas from the full-beam beach club of ARROW yacht this Christmas morning, with availability on this 75m Feadship until 26 December. Come evening time, the beach club converts to a chic sea-level lounge, while guests of all ages can enjoy her sundeck Jacuzzi, with an elevator to all decks.

Dripping in style and serious luxury, the 48m Rossinavi yacht PARILLION is available over Christmas until 27 December in the Caribbean and comes with a 120m square metre sun deck with waterfall pool, a vast main salon, and lots of glittering extras.

For sailing yacht afficionados, CROSSBOW yacht is available over Christmas in the Caribbean and is exceedingly happy hopping from island to island, while guests take in the sweeping, calming views of sea, sand, and sky from her flush decks.

Charter guests looking to make this the festive period they do something out of the ordinary, can book a yacht charter about the sensational 85.5m Oceanco yacht SUNRAYS, which has availability over Christmas and New Year in both the UAE and the Indian Ocean and comes with exceptional amenities across her vast decks, including a large pool, three Jacuzzis, and a dedicated party deck.

For a true adventure this new year, the 40m yacht KONTIKI is the only superyacht to charter along Ecuador’s Pacific coast and is offering a 10% discount for charters booked from 30 December.

Get 2024 off to the right start

For guests looking to holiday early in the new year, AHPO is an incredible 115m yacht from Lürssen that is available in the Caribbean or the Bahamas from 5 January onwards and comes with an infinity pool on the sky deck and a nature-inspired spa that connects to her beautiful beach club.

Following an extensive refit in 2023, the 56m Perini Navi sailing charter yacht ASAHI is in superb condition. Available from 13 January in the Caribbean, one of her biggest draws is a bulging toy box that is easily accessible thanks to her two-metre-wide hydraulic swim platform, ensuring fun takes a front seat in guests’ 2024 plans.

A new edition to the Edmiston fleet, the 68m Catamaran WAYFINDER can be chartered in the Caribbean, the Bahamas, or Central America this winter as an exhaustive support vessel, providing transfers from helicopters and tenders and the mothership, and carrying every conceivable water toy.

First-rate service is guaranteed aboard AMIGOS yacht with the crew of 13 outnumbering the 12 guests, while features such as a four-metre counter-current pool, will ensure guests allow themselves to fully switch off.

Something to look forward to

If normal life really must resume in January, then book a charter holiday a little further ahead either as a Christmas gift for yourself or for someone else.

The fully accessible performance sloop PERSEUS^3 is available from 1 February in New Zealand or from the end of May in Papua New Guinea and Indonesia and offers some of the most opulent sailing accommodation on the charter market, bringing distance shores that bit closer.

Barefoot luxury and access to some of the most remote anchorages of Panama and Costa Rica is available aboard TURKISH DELIGHT yacht early 2024, and as they are reclining on the day beds on the fore deck, guests are never too far from the action.

And finally, the 50m Heesen yacht, HOME, new to the Edmiston fleet, is available in the Bahamas this winter and offers a quieter, greener approach to chartering with Ibiza-style Cristiano Gatto interiors that will ensure holiday mode is engaged from the moment guests step on board.
