Boatbookings, a leader in online boat chartering, is was recently featured in a New York Times Sunday Edition article titled "Holiday Getaways: There Are Places Other Than Home", written by Jennifer Conlin. Boatbookings worked with the New York Times to source two boats and suggest some unique things to do during Christmas in the Caribbean.

The text of the article that mentions Boatbookings is:


Spend a week sailing around St. Vincent and the Grenadine Islands, where rain forests, protected coral reefs and crater lakes are far from extinct. Be sure to pull into port at St. Vincent between Dec. 16 and 25 when the whole island celebrates Nine Mornings, -a predawn indigenous festival. Tourists are welcome to partake in the many activities, which include sea baths, story telling, street dancing and calypso competitions. Consider sailing through the Grenadines, featured in the film "Pirates of the Caribbean," and anchoring for lunch at Petit Tabac, the beach where Sparrow, the character played by Johnny Depp in "Pirates," was marooned. On New Year's Eve ask the crew to dock at Basil's Bar in Mustique.

Boats to Rent A wide variety of yachts, catamarans and other vessels is available to rent. Ten guests can comfortably sleep on Freya, a crewed luxury catamaran yacht with a large outdoor deck and bar for entertaining; it can be chartered for 12,000 euros a week. For an even bigger splurge, rent Azzura, a 95-foot sailing yacht with a teak interior that sleeps six guests in three cabins, each with a bathroom. With every amenity from a CD and video library to a boat for shuttling passengers back and forth from the islands, the Azzura's crew will even set up a tree in the lounge for Christmas sailors; it goes for 34,000 euros a week. Both vessels can be rented through a Web site,
