Yacht Charters St Barts

With exclusivity comes an elite crowd of private yacht charters in St Barts and the world’s who’s who on board.

A yacht charter to St Barts is a quintessentially French experience in the gorgeous Caribbean where yacht parties, indulgent spas, and bohemian shops compliment relaxing beaches and crystal clear waters. The place to lounge, play with the water toys and be seen with VIPs, St Barts is an island to stay for a few days.

When is the best time of year to charter a yacht in the St Barts?

The marinas around St Barts are filled with the world’s superyachts from November to March. But December and January are the peak months when glamorous guests onboard their luxury yacht charter of St Barts are sprawling the island, and the holiday vibes are ignited. 

This season is technically the winter in St Barts. But winter is a summeresque dream in this tropical climate, and the summer is a little too wet to venture here by boat. 

Throughout the entire tourist season – November to March – temperatures range in the mid to high 20°Cs. 

Insider tip: The shoulder months: November, February, and March, still boast fantastic temperatures. They’re only shoulder months due to the slight chance of rain, although they’re usually still rather dry. If you don’t mind a chance of rain while cruising on a private charter of St Barts, the prices are much lower than in the peak two months. 

If you love the thrill of a regatta, the St Barts Bucket, running every March, is worth attending. Running since 1986, the Bucket attracts a fleet of about 40 superyachts and the rockstars of the sailing world competing for the annual accomplishment.
