Summer 2020 on DRAGONFLY in the Grenadines

Have you been chartering in the BVI for years and tempted to try a new Caribbean island? With an increasing number of quality catamarans heading down islands during the summer months, there has never been a better time to consider a Grenadines yacht charter.

One of our favourite Lagoon 620 crewed catamarans, DRAGONFLY, has confirmed that they will be down in the Grenadines from June 2020. DRAGONFLY is one of the newest Lagoon 620s in the Caribbean with a vastly experienced crew in Christiaan and Hanrie, who always offer exceptional service, food and enjoyment for guests of all ages.


“ The most amazing start to a year anyone could dream of – thank you. We have been absolutely spoilt rotten by your food, hospitality and endless activities for the boys and you have chosen a spectacular backdrop for showcasing your skills. Whether swimming with turtles, stingrays or tarpons, tubing or snorkelling on incredible reefs, we had a series of unforgettable experiences. Thank you so much Boatbookings, we can`t wait to come back! ”

The Grenadines are the perfect catamaran cruising ground. They offer stunning sunsets, long sandy beaches and some of the clearest waters in the Caribbean. Embark in Grenada and head for the peaceful anchorages of Carriacou, before kite surfing on Union Islands and visiting the famous Basil’s Bar in Mustique.

The Grenadines really do offer something for everyone. Contact your Boatbookings Broker today to start planning your next adventure.

LONDON SKY Is The Limit!

It’s a well established fact of the charter market that the Caribbean – and more specifically the BVI are the most popular destinations for winter. Especially Christmas and New Years are booked maybe one year in advance… What’s new is the increasing trend for summer BVI charters: especially families with children from North and South America, choose the Caribbean for their summer holidays: the main reason being the relatively short flights to the BVI and the protected waters. So get your flights book and go sailing in the BVI for an unforgettable trip!

Off the Beaten track in Greece Onboard Luxury Crewed Catamaran NOVA

Let’s talk about Greece! Despite what you may have been led to believe, Greece is not all about Santorini or Mykonos.  With one the largest coastlines amongst all the Mediterranean countries, Greece offers a surprisingly extended choice of destinations.

Green Chartering: Offset Your Carbon Emissions

One of the hesitations that many have about chartering a luxury yacht is the carbon emissions that their yacht will create. The option to “green charter”, gives you the chance to offset your carbon emissions, purchasing carbon credits at the same time as booking your charter.

If this is something you’d be interested in doing, please do mention it to a broker when you make an enquiry. You can work out how much carbon credits would cost for your particular yacht using our great “Carbon Credit Calculator”.

Alternatively, for those that are still hesitant, we highly recommend chartering a catamaran, or monohull sailboat, as they use much less fuel than a motorboat. One of our recommendations of a catamaran for charter is the stunning BARBUDA BELLE, a Lagoon 620, that came first in our BVI Yacht Show Report.

At, we welcome everyone from sailing professionals to complete novices and will help you at every step of the way to make your dreams a reality. We have a team of highly skilled professionals who are extremely knowledgeable in their destinations and will be able to help you with any questions you may have.
