If sailing is your thing then a St Lucia yacht charter vacation could just be the perfect escape for you. With a number of popular sailing outfits based in Saint Lucia there is plenty of choice for you. From Sunsail to DSL Yachting and The Moorings at Oasis Marigot you will be spoilt for choice whether to opt for bare boat or skippered.
And like so much of the Caribbean St Lucia offers some absolutely phenomenal sailing whether you head north towards Martinique, or south towards The Pitons or even further south towards the Grenadines with their stunningly clear aquamarine waters and powdery white sand beaches. Interestingly enough although a great deal of emphasis has not been generally placed on yachting in the broader St Lucia tourism dialogue St Lucia sail boat charters are well known to many in the sailing world and with Island Global Yachting’s (IGY) recent purchase of the Rodney Bay Marina the outlook on any sort of St Lucia yacht charter is suddenly looking really good.
