Who says summer's over...



Nicholson Yacht Charters

Who says summer's over? Not the folks at Nicholson Yacht Charters -- where summer rates are still available on fully crewed yachts, sail and power, in the islands of the Caribbean. Weekly rates from $4,000 for two.

(Cambridge, MA Oct. 6, 2008) "Any time between now and December 15," notes Julie Nicholson of the First Family of Yacht Charters, "we can fix you up with, say, a 72-foot ketch for eight passengers for the same price you would have paid back in July."

That means eight passengers can split $12,000 a week (meals included) rather than the $18,000 they’d pay next January.

Currently, Nicholson Yacht Charters has a selection of 96 sailing yachts and 38 motor yachts available for fall charters throughout the Caribbean. These are all crewed yachts, with professional captains who have years of experience in these waters. Rates range from $4,000 for two passengers to $50,000 for 10 passengers.

So anyone toying with the idea of a pre-holiday vacation in the islands but can't quite decide which island to visit should consider one great solution: visit several islands aboard a chartered crewed yacht.

Revel in the joys of sailing in the Caribbean in fall: Ideal temperatures, stiff breezes, exhilarating sailing. Snorkel and water ski and kayak right from the stern of your yacht. Dine by candlelight, on deck, beneath the stars. Let your crew ferry you ashore to dance barefoot in the sand or hit the nearest night spots.

Best of all, you'll have a savvy crew to take care of all the sailing, the formalities, the organizing of trips ashore – and the five-star service.

60 years of experience making charter dreams come true

Next year, Nicholson Yacht Charters celebrates 60 years of chartering. Founded in Antigua in 1949, Nicholson pioneered an entire new business and is now considered by charter professionals to be the worldwide experts on charter yachting.

The Nicholson team doesn't just take calls and match clients with yachts (sail and power), they also spend much of their time traveling the world to boat shows to check out individual yachts and get to know their crews so that they can recommend the perfect match of client, crew and yacht.

President Julie Nicholson is quick to point out that yacht charters are ideal for families. “We have yachts for water skiers and windsurfers, but some even carry their own diving gear and tanks and the larger yachts may also have a gym or a private, internet-equipped study for executives who want to keep in touch with their offices.”
