St. Vincent and the Grenadines are in the southern half of the Caribbean, far from the hustle and bustle of yacht charter hubs up north in Antigua and Sint Maarten. Chartering in the Grenadines is a bit more quiet as Caribbean experiences go: You still get great beaches, warm blue water and fun rum bars ashore, but without quite as many crowds, and definitely without as many charter yachts as you’ll find up in the northern Caribbean islands.
The 46-foot Fountaine Pajot sailing catamaran Imagination is based in the Grenadines, and is offering a few deals for summer charters, according to management company Regency Yacht Charters. If you book five nights, you get a sixth night free; and if you book six nights, you get a seventh night free.
Plus, if you choose to eat two dinners and one lunch at restaurants ashore (so the crew don’t have to cook for you and include those meals in the usual included costs), the owner will also give 10 percent off the weekly rate altogether.
Imagination is a 2001 build that accommodates as many as six guests in one queen and two double cabins. All are en suite.
Also noteworthy is that Imagination offers scuba diving as well as scuba lessons (the captain is a PADI instructor). That’s an extra fee depending on what type of diving or instruction guests desire.
Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about Imagination or help you book her for a Grenadines yacht charter with the bonus days and/or the 10-percent discount this summer.
