Unique Ways To Sail

3 Unique Ways To Sail With Our Waypoints Yacht Charter Experiences

Choosing between a crewed, captained, or bareboat yacht charter in the Virgin Islands is about more than selecting a boat. It’s about deciding how you want to experience the ocean, the skies, and the island paradises you’ll be sailing between. 

For avid sailors, a bareboat yacht charter offers the opportunity to steer your own course and enjoy complete freedom.

For those whose dreams of a yacht charter focus on recharging and relaxing, a captained charter means letting an expert take the helm. 

Yet, the decision isn’t just between hiring a captain or taking on the role yourself. It’s about the experience that goes alongside the journey – from the first planning call to your days on the water. At Waypoints Yacht Charters, we understand this and are here to guide you through crafting an adventure that mirrors your vision of the perfect getaway.

With offices strategically located in the world’s top sailing destinations — including Annapolis, St. Petersburg, the US Virgin Islands, the Bahamas, and of course, the British Virgin Islands — our team brings a wealth of knowledge and insider insights to your charter planning process. 

Today, we want to share more about our three exclusive types of Waypoints yacht charter experiences – bareboat charters, captained charters, and all-inclusive charters – to guarantee you get just the adventure you’re looking for.

  1. Bareboat Charters: The Pinnacle of Personalized Sailing Adventures

Imagine the freedom of sailing at your own pace, charting a course to the destinations of your choice. 

A Waypoints bareboat yacht charter empowers you to captain your own adventure, offering an exhilarating blend of autonomy and adventure. 

This option is perfect for:

  • Seasoned sailors wanting the thrill of navigation and exploration
  • Adventurous families seeking a vacation tailored to their interests
  • Groups of friends wanting to take adventure into their own hands and creating unforgettable memories 
  1. Captained Charters: Effortless Elegance on the Open Seas

For those who prefer to relax without the responsibilities of navigation, our captained charters offer the perfect escape. 

With a professional Captain at the helm, you’re free to relax and enjoy the majestic beauty of the British Virgin Islands. Whether it’s snorkeling in the turquoise waters, or sailing the Sir Francis Drake Channel from Tortola to Virgin Gorda, your adventure awaits you.

This is an ideal option for:

  • First-time sailors eager to experience yachting without the need for nautical skills
  • Luxury seekers looking for a tailored experience with the assurance of an expert guide
  • Celebratory occasions, where the focus is on enjoyment and making every moment count
  1. All-Inclusive Charters: The Ultimate in Luxury 

Embrace the epitome of luxury with our all-inclusive charters, where every detail is meticulously crafted to ensure a vacation that exceeds your every expectation.

From gourmet meals prepared by your personal chef to a custom itinerary showcasing the best of the islands, our all-inclusive yacht charters are a world apart. To make the most of your all-inclusive charter experience, we offer three different options:

Crewed Catamarans

Catamarans offer a stable, spacious charter experience that makes them an ideal choice for both seasoned sailors and those new to sailing. 

The dual-hulled design not only ensures a smooth ride, minimizing the rolling motion that can cause seasickness but also provides expansive living spaces, allowing guests to spread out and find their own corner of paradise. 

With a professional crew to navigate and manage the vessel, you get to relax and enjoy the views. These floating retreats are perfect for family gatherings, where each member can find something to love, from the thrill of hoisting the sails to the joy of snorkeling in crystal-clear waters directly from the deck.

Crewed Power Yachts

For those who are looking for a yacht with a bit more speed and luxury, crewed power yachts offer an unmatched experience. These vessels glide through the water with ease, enabling you to explore a wider range of destinations within your itinerary. 

The power yacht’s sophisticated engineering and lavish interiors provide the perfect backdrop for your escape.

This choice is ideal for adventurers who seek to blend the excitement of exploration with the pinnacle of maritime luxury.
