Part of being able to maximize your charter income, is understanding where to find the most interesting (and profitable!) charter destinations. From South Florida, Bermuda is a popular charter destination that is easily accessible for short or long term charter voyages.
Bermuda has always been a popular destination for yachts of both the sailing and motor variety. Bermuda will host the Americas Cup in 2017. In the run up to the races, the unassuming island is becoming even more popular with seafarers the world over.
Bermuda has had its share of ebbs and flows with tourism over the years. Once a playground for the elite, it has lost some of its luster to the Caribbean, but it is back on the upswing, thanks largely to hosting yachting’s signature international event.
According to Forbes Magazine, since landing the America’s Cup for 2017, visits to the island by 18-24 year olds were up “39 percent and government officials believe that many will become repeat visitors, returning for destination weddings, honeymoons, weekend getaways and vacations…”
Highlights of a Bermuda Yacht Charter
The quaint British Territory, once mainly known for its pastel colors and definitive shorts, is now trying to convince yachtsman and others alike that “this is not your father’s Bermuda.” The Island is now actively marketing its more adventurous side, promoting everything from scuba diving, snorkeling, and sport fishing, to parasailing and, whale watching.
As part of the preparations for hosting the America’s Cup, the island has had to create more dockage suited to luxury motor yachts, which is why Bermuda is seeing a resurgence as a charter destination.
Something for Everyone
Besides spending time on your chartered yacht just enjoying the water, maybe doing some scuba, snorkeling, and some fun with a jet ski, Bermuda has some of the most beautiful white and pink sand beaches in the world.
During a yacht charter to Bermuda you can expect to see amazing sunsets, explore mysterious crystal caves, and experience some wonderful restaurants, such as the Four Ways Inn, which was originally built in 1727, as the home of John Harvey of Harvey’s Bristol Cream fame.
As a centuries old British Territory, there is a lot of cultural history to experience on the Island, from high tea, to rum tastings! Bermuda may be reestablishing itself as a playground for high income earning adults, but it is family friendly too, with many fun-filled activities for the entire family from horseback riding to exploring forts and caves rich in pirate folklore!
