What do you look for when considering your next vacation? Rest and relaxation, a beautiful location, perfect climate, value for money and service with a smile?

With bases in the British Virgin Islands, Antigua & Barbuda, St Martin and Grenada & The Grenadines, a crewed yacht charter is the perfect blend of all the very best ingredients you look for in a vacation of a lifetime – first class accommodation and the freedom to cruise shimmering turquoise waters on board your own private sailing yacht.
Your vaction; your itinerary
With Horizon Crewed Yacht Charters, you don’t have to be a sailor to enjoy the pleasures of setting sail and feeling the warmth of the sun as you cruise past palm fringed beaches and deserted islands. Whether you are an old salt or a landlubber, looking for adventure or relaxation, dreaming of bustling ports or quiet coves, Horizon Yacht Charters will help create the perfect crewed sailing holiday – your own private floating resort. Just picture the excitement of stepping on board a first class yacht and calling it your own for a week, perhaps two, or even longer – a new location every day and you never have to pack or unpack – what could be better? All cabins are equipped with full linens and towels – so you just need to pack your swimwear and sunglasses. A welcome cocktail will be waiting for you when you arrive.
Unlike other vacations such as cruise ships, a crewed Horizon charter is tailored to your individual requirements – we do not have set itineraries and this means that there are no time limits on how long you stay at any location. Each itinerary is tailored to your wishes. Every detail, the places you visit, the activities you enjoy, even the menus are all tailor-made just for you.
Heidi, a gourmet chef with Horizon Antigua, comments “we plan each menu according to our guests’ preferences; whether that’s coconut battered shrimp for a tasty appetizer and Swordfish Siciliana for an entrée – every menu is individual and according to our guests’ special wishes”. Specific dietary requests are also taken into consideration and catered for.
Do as much or as little as you wish
The beauty of chartering a private yacht is that you can do as much or as little as you choose. Many guests choose to learn to scuba dive as part of their vacation. Horizon can arrange for Dive companies to rendez vous wherever you are – a fantastic way to see the abundance of life below the surface and experience the full beauty of the Caribbean. Crewed yachts are also equipped with water toys on board including kayaks, floating mattresses and snorkeling equipment. For novices, your Captain will teach you how to snorkel. Each yacht is equipped with a dinghy which means your Captain can take you to snorkeling sites not normally accessible by yacht.
Be good to yourself
For those seeking the ultimate relaxing tropical vacation, Horizon can also book pampering days at Spas around the islands. Other activities such as yoga and pilates are also available; everything from your own personal yoga instructor to larger classes at some locations.
The freedom of having your own Captain and Hostess crew, means that you can take the wheel and be actively involved in sailing the yacht or you can choose to just sit back and relax as no sailing experience is required.
All of the crews on Horizon’s Crewed Yacht Charters consist of qualified yacht Captains and Hostesses who have sailed the Caribbean waters for many years. Their local knowledge is unsurpassed. We have guests who join us year after year and ask for their favourite crews. Your enjoyment is Horizon’s number one priority and we select our crews on this basis. They are all child-friendly which means if your children are happy water babies, then you can relax.
The difference is Horizon
