Navigator News > Charter

Our expert retail charter brokers have their fingers on the pulse of the industry. They weigh in to shed some light on 2017’s hottest charter spots & best locations to get away from it all.

Croatia

“When getting away from it all aboard a private yacht, there is no better place than Croatia’s tiny pristine islands and their private anchorages. When cruising, you can witness the pure beauty of the Dalmatian coastline and explore the incredible bay of Kotor, which is home to some of the most stunning scenery in the Mediterranean — it really is heaven on earth.”

Cuba

“I think Cuba will be 2017’s top charter destination. Everyone — including Americans and Europeans — is clamoring to go before the ‘Americanization’ sets in, which seems likely in the very near future. In addition, everyone wants to be the ‘first’ to go. We’re not only seeing this with charter clients, but also with yacht owners too. The charter inventory in the area is growing every day as more and more owners are agreeing to send their yachts to Cuba. It’s a matter of proper planning to ensure the yacht and charterer are legally okayed. Time and attention to detail are of the utmost importance.”

Alaska

“I may be biased, but I think Alaska is a top destination for 2017. It’s a bucket-list item for most people and it’s appealing because of its remoteness and beauty. It’s also one of the last untouched locations in the world. Alaska is much larger than people realize, and guests can’t help but be awed by her vast lush rainforests and larger-than-life wildlife. Everything is bigger in Alaska, from the mountains and the wildlife to the breathtaking background scenery. It’s a magical place and a must-do cruising destination because there’s no other place like it in the world.”
