The Turks and Caicos Islands hold a special place in my heart. They lie between the southern Bahamas and the northern coast of Hispaniola, and they are where (more years ago than I care to count) I learned to scuba dive.
Because the Turks and Caicos are less-traveled than the popular Bahamas, not to mention the northern Caribbean, the reefs there are teeming with colorful coral and marine life. The first time I saw the wall reefs there (which are kind of vertical and disappear down into the depths of the sea), the colors were so vibrant that I felt like I was looking at an underwater Impressionist painting.
One reason that the Turks and Caicos stay so beautiful is that few cruise ships go there, and few charter yachts advertise availability either. That’s what makes this news from Nicholson Yachts newsworthy: The 61-foot Privilege sailing catamaran Sea Forever will charter in the Turks and Caicos Islands from April 15-30.
Before and after those dates, Sea Forever has charter openings in the Caribbean and Bahamas, but clients can score a Turks and Caicos itinerary during the two-week window in April.
Sea Forever is a 2011 build that accommodates six guests in three staterooms. All have king-size beds and ensuite bathrooms, making the yacht a good option to consider for three couples who want to spend the week together and split the rate (without anyone feeling like they are stuck in a kiddie cabin).
The weekly rate to charter Sea Forever ranges from $25,000 to $29,000 for two to six guests. Any reputable charter broker can tell you more or help you book the yacht April 15-30 in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
