Private Yacht Charters

Discover Yachts for Vacations, Meetings & Incentives

A private yacht provides you with an attentive solicitous crew that will cater to your creature comforts… comfortable air-conditioned accommodations, gourmet meals prepared with special attention to your tastes and specifications, and a tailor made itinerary with an opportunity to sail just about anywhere in the world- Caribbean, Mediterranean, Europe and areas of the Pacific.

Yachts are equipped with all the sports toys, the latest technological equipment for your safety at sea and the ability to reach anyone in the world by either satellite phone or e-mail. You can be as near or as far away to the real world as you want to be.

Not only does chartering a private yacht provide you with the ultimate vacation experience, but it also offers a very attractive venue for corporate incentive programs and for executive level board meetings. Private motor and sailing yachts can accommodate anywhere from two to twelve guests on the smaller vessels and from 34 to 112 guests on the larger yachts, with prices varying according to the level of luxury in which you choose to cruise.

Destinations recommends Nicholson Yachts to provide you with an unforgettable yacht charter experience.

Yacht Charters

Chartering your own yacht and charting your own course can be one of the most exhilarating experiences of a lifetime. Whether motor yachts or sailing yachts, chartering a yacht enables you to participate in the lifestyle of the rich and famous. Yes, it is not the least expensive way to travel, but when joined by two or three other couples chartering can be affordable. The type of yacht chartered in the area of the world that the charter occurs is totally dependent on one’s personal interest. Some prefer motor yachts and others prefer sailing. Some charter to go snorkeling and diving in quiet normally unreachable coves or anchor near reefs. Others charter to fish areas that are otherwise “unfished”. Whatever the reason, chartering your own yacht provides the flexibility and freedom unavailable to most.

Who Charters?

Corporations charter for company executives, for board meetings and to offer as incentives for their top sales people. Divers, fisherman and explorers charter to reach remote areas of the world’s oceans, seas and rivers. Couples charter yachts for honeymoons, anniversaries or simply for vacations. Families and friends who wish to reach remote islands and those who love to be on the water but not on a ship with 2,000 other passengers charter their own yacht.

Why Nicholson Yachts?

Commander Nicholson purchased his first yacht in 1903 and by 1953 the Nicholson’s began their charter business and currently sources vessels of every size throughout the world for those wishing this unique experience. We elected to work with Nicholson because we only work with the best. Nicholson offers charters for up to 12 guests with captain, crew, chef and complete provisioning. For this reason, a pilot’s license and experienced navigation is not required.

CHARTER OPTIONS

Crewed Yachts

This is our specialty at Nicholson Yacht Charters. You’re always welcome to help sail, but here there’s no need to be an experienced yachtsman. On these craft you are our guest and a pampered guest you will be by being taken care of by professional chefs, uniformed stewards, your qualified captain, and a congenial crew. Something new and exciting to see each day, and you don’t have to think of a thing.

Tandem Cruising

This is the ideal option for larger parties or incentive groups. Several yachts cruise in company, sometimes racing by day, and always rendezvous by night. Weather conditions permitting, the craft will raft together each night so that guests can move easily from one vessel to another. A fabulous group charter experience.

Captain Only

Perhaps there is less luxury on this type of cruise, but oh, the things you will see and the things you will learn! Total involvement is the best teacher, and your experienced captain will guide you as you crew the ship, take the helm, prepare the meals, navigate, and trim the sails. Your very own cruise.

TYPES OF YACHTS

The next thing you will need to consider is what sort of craft you prefer. Does your cruisingadventure include the rush of excitement you feel as the sails catch the wind and you start to fly? Or is motoring across crystal clear waters more what you have in mind? It’s your choice.

Classic Sail

These are the yachts of old. Beautiful, timeless lines, clipper bows, counter sterns, and thin waists. Many of these fine vessels are museum quality, crafted of fine woods. A classic such as this may have a bit less living space, but the teak decks and sea-faring beauty are yours for a week that you’ll never forget.

Cruising Sail

These yachts have a pleasant blend of performance and comfort. You’ll find large, awning covered cockpits, open deck spaces, and a craft you can fall in love with. Most are made of modern materials, and many include such special touches as double beds, thick, pile carpets, air conditioning, larger bathrooms, and sunken bathtubs. These are perhaps not the fastest boats on the water, but who’s in a hurry?

Performance Sail

This is the most exhilarating type of sailing. You climb to windward for the thrill of a lifetime as the ship heels and the keel grips the water. Your sails steady the motion of the sea and your adventure has just begun. There is nothing else like it.

Multi-hulls

These are very special craft, stable at sea with masses of deck space and cool, private and well-ventilated cabins. Your vessel is fast downwind and has an exceptionally shallow draft, so you can anchor in as little as three feet of water. Take to the blue water and wade to shore.

Motor Yachts

For the ultimate in comfort and luxury, there is nothing like motor cruising for speed under way, sophisticated service, and many offer such amenities as Jacuzzi, one-way windows, and spiral staircases. This is your best choice when you really want to be pampered.
