There is no better way to explore the beautiful Lowcountry waterways of St. Lucia than a boat charter. A private yacht charter is a perfect way to relax and enjoy everything this unique naturescape has to offer.

Before you book, here are some things to consider to ensure your yacht rental experience is everything you could hope for and more!

Choose the Right Boat Charter

When renting a yacht, it’s important to do some research to make sure you’re choosing the right experience. 

Consider your party size and how large of a yacht you will need for everyone to be comfortable. For example, St. Lucia Yacht Charter’s 80-foot Hatteras motoryacht “Top Shelf” accommodates parties of up to 12!

Next, look for quality. While the term “yacht” may seem to imply luxury, it’s always in the eye of the beholder.

Be sure to choose a charter that has an expansive, updated photo gallery on their website. Check out photos of our exquisitely updated “floating resort.”

Third, and most important, consider the level of service you would like to receive from the crew. 

If the charter company doesn’t provide a captain or crew, it’s likely not a boat charter. That’s much different than renting a yacht. The crew on a true luxury yacht rental will at least include

  • Captain and deck crew
  • Chief stewardess
  • Executive chef

Finally, before you book a reservation, be sure to check the charter company’s online reviews. to make sure customers recommend them–100 percent of St. Lucia Yacht Charter’s reviews are five stars!
