If you’ve chartered in the northern part of the Caribbean and experienced popular islands including Antigua, St. Barts and Sint Maarten, then the Grenadines in the southern Caribbean may surprise you.
The Grenadines are typically quieter with fewer yachts, offering a relaxed and welcoming vibe that some people call “the Caribbean how it used to be.” The region includes the Tobago Cays national park (great for snorkeling) as well as St. Lucia and its towering Pitons, a photo op of a lifetime for any charter yacht in the nearby harbor.
Regency Yacht Charters says the entire Xenia fleet of sailing catamarans is heading to the Grenadines beginning in mid-July. These catamarans (50, 62 and 74 feet length overall, built by Privilege) have the same owner and standards of service, and they can be booked individually or in tandem if you want to do a private regatta of your own throughout the Grenadines.
Any reputable charter broker can help you book available dates for when the yachts get to the Grenadines, around mid-July. Here’s a look at some fantastic photographs from the Xenia fleet to whet your appetite:
