Saint Martin/Sint Maarten Yacht Charter
Saint Martin/St. Maarten offers dual cultures, a wealth of marinas, and a protected bay. The best time of year for yacht chartering in Saint Martin/St. Maarten is from November to April.
Many yachtsmen treat the dual-nation island of Saint Martin (France) and Sint Maarten (Netherlands Antilles) merely as a way station to and from their Caribbean cruising vacations. That’s a shame, because this multicultural isle is a fun destination in its own right. Where else can you find an international airport, six superyacht marinas, fabulous food, duty-free shopping and 39 beaches all within 37 square miles?
The Dutch side of the island is where many of the marinas are located, within the sheltering shores of Simpson Bay Lagoon. A cab-ride away is the colonial city of Philipsburg, one of the Caribbean’s premier shopping destinations. By night, the action moves to the nightclubs and gambling casinos.
St. Martin is better known for its French cuisine, particularly in the fishing village of Grand Case. Orient Bay, one of the island’s best beaches, also has St. Tropez-style eateries. Adventurous visitors can venture inland to hike lush tropical hillsides or ride a zipline through the treetops at Loterie Farm.
Charter boats of every sort and size are based in Saint Martin/Sint Maarten due to its location as a Leeward Islands hub. Sandy Anguilla is only 10 nautical miles to the north, and it’s a 15nm run to chic St. Barths.
