The Americas Yacht Charter Guide


Whether you are looking to cruise the inspiring shores of the Pacific Northwest or the quaint New England shoreline, every Americas yacht charter is unique. Dreaming of cruising the unique landscapes of Mexico? Or are the wild shores and dramatic scenery of Galápagos on your bucket list? The vast American continent offers endless cruising possibilities.

Charter Experience

The opportunities during an Americas yacht charter are endless. A charter in North America encompasses an incredibly diverse coastline with serene anchorages and a charming yachting heritage atmosphere, while on the West Coast you can explore Mayan ruins and dive fascinating reefs along the Pacific coastline of Mexico. Alternatively, the Galápagos lies in rare isolation and provides an incredibly rare experience with raw nature.


Those looking for an adventurous charter should consider western North America. The wild landscape of Alaska’s southern coast offers breathtaking scenery, with lofty glaciers, misty fjords and teal-blue waters. Take an excursion ashore to explore the wonderfully pristine wildernesses that the stunning Pacific Northwest has in spades. You might prefer the charming coastline of New England, home to America’s historic yachting capital of Newport and the island jewels of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. Steeped in maritime history, the rugged coastline offers a mix of quaint fishing villages and picturesque towns with a laidback East Coast ambiance. Those looking for warmer climates year-round should travel south to the balmy Sunshine State of Florida, which provides plenty of cruising possibilities through the Florida Keys to the southernmost point of Continental US during a yacht charter.

Rich in dramatic history with a vibrant culture, Mexico is an exotic mix of Spanish and native cultures with a streak of the legendary Mayan and Aztec civilizations. An endless land of contrasts, the east coast boasts exotic flower-decked shorelines while Mexico’s Pacific coast and Baja California are among the most irresistible cruising areas of all. Even further afield, the islands of the Galapagos revel in isolation 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador. Follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin and discover plant, animal, marine and birdlife while cruising this dramatic volcanic archipelago.
