Most of us cherish the thought of spending time on the water without a care in the world. Chartering a yacht is the equivalent of this dream; you vacation on the sea while a professional crew takes care of your every need. The prospect of letting your cares float away is especially enticing around the holidays when things at home can get a little hectic. You should consider chartering a Catamaran for the New Year’s festivities so you can be relaxed and fully entertained at the same time!
Sailing not driving on New Years eve!
Picture yourself sailing around a bay at dusk as the sun goes down and the lights from the nearest town start to twinkle against the darkening sky. Doesn;t that sound better than driving on the roads! The chartered Catamaran offers the utmost in convenience – room for your entire group to move around, delicious meals prepared by a chef, and comfortable, clean staterooms where you gently rock to sleep. On land however, it is a different story. Around New Year’s Eve it is a constant party! Local foods, beverages, and people are there to enhance your celebration.
Fireworks from the water
The best part of chartering a Catamaran is your ability to move around (in shallow water, no less!) to different islands and to determine your favorite spot. Since you are on the water, the fireworks on New Year’s Eve are especially beautiful considering they reflect up all around you and feel even more vivid than usual. Whether you seek out the fireworks over Willemstad in Curacao or the display in Philipsburg, St. Maarten, you will not be disappointed. St. Croix, St. Barth’s, and many other Caribbean islands put on spectacular shows that are breathtaking when viewed from the water.
International Yacht Charter Group encourages Catamaran charters for people who want to spend a lot of time on deck. Catamarans are multi-hulled boats designed with ample “outdoor” space. This affords groups the opportunity to spread out a little or to be together in one spot on the yacht. A Catamaran’s trampoline is one such location that would be ideal for the whole group to view the New Year’s Eve fireworks displays from.
Choices every day
Take advantage of your charter yacht vacation by having the Captain move the Catamaran around to a few ports prior to New Year’s Eve so that you know where you would like to be moored for the actual holiday. The Caribbean, in particular, is especially great for island hopping, and you can take the opportunity to discover festive party ports as well as quiet coves and bays before the year’s end. Settle on Jost Van Dyke if you’re interested in a real party scene or sneak off to an anchorage at St. Barth’s for some privacy in the midst of the rich and famous.
A new way to start the new year
Everyone wishes to start a new year off on the right foot, and a chartered Catamaran is one way to ensure that will happen. The atmosphere on island nations is truly convivial, and the ambience on your private yacht is going to be that of refined relaxation. Bring as many or as few people as your Catamaran will accommodate and then ring in the New Year with all the style and class that you deserve!
