St Martin/St Maarten / Special Interests / Crewed Yacht Charter

By Frances and Michael Howorth

Superyachts, Megayachts and even Gigayachts hang out here in the many marinas on the Dutch side of this island or anchor off the French side.  They do so because this is where they store up with foods and wines freshly imported from around the world.  With an international airport right on the doorstep this is the ideal spot to join a crewed charter yacht and set off exploring nearby islands.  Make sure you are up on deck as the yacht leaves the Simpson Bay Lagoon through the narrow bridge.  Head south to St Barths to join the beautiful people, dock inside the quaint port of Gustavia the island’s capital. The further in your yacht docks the less affected she will be by water movement.
