10 Best Charter Yachts with 2010 Christmas Availability

Northrop and Johnson says the 115-foot Crescent motoryacht Kapalua is still available for a Christmas charter in the Virgin Islands—and is willing to give eight days for the price of seven during the Christmas holiday dates.

Charter broker Beverly Parsons at Interpac Yachts says the 98-foot Poole Chaffee motoryacht Marazul and the 77-foot Italversal motoryacht Sogno are both still available for Christmas: “And charter in Mexico, where they are based, is great at that time of year!”

Ocean Independence says the 141-foot sailing yacht This is Us is still available for a Christmas charter in the Caribbean. Her winter rates have not yet been announced, but the highest weekly base rate this summer in the Mediterranean was €58,000 for 12 guests.

Edmiston and Company says the 254-foot motoryacht Samar is still available for Christmas in and around the Caribbean island of Antigua. (And if you book for Christmas before August 31, you can save as much as €100,000 on Samar’s weekly base rate.)

Also from Edmiston and Company is a recommendation for the 154-foot Proteksan Turquoise motoryacht Odessa: “She represents the utmost in pure and simple elegance, and features everything guests could require with spacious and versatile accommodation, the latest entertainment facilities, and an array of water-sports activities. She will be available in the Caribbean at a holiday weekly base rate of $225,000.”

Select Yachts suggests the newly launched, 59-foot Benetau sailing yacht Blue Passion, which is available for Christmas in the Northern Caribbean or the British Virgin Islands.

The Sacks Group Yachting Professionals still has Christmas availability aboard the 112-foot Westport motoryacht Milk Money, which will be available in Florida or the Bahamas at a base rate of $48,950 per week, with a 10-day minimum booking during the holiday dates.
