Upgrades Abound

Antara is a 1991 build with a surprising number of modern amenities. Her refit earlier this year included upgraded Wi-Fi and a new entertainment system with speakers on the flybridge. It's OK to crank the volume: Extra sound insulation was added in the guest staterooms.

A Modern Classic

Taransay is a 2015 build that is a replica of a 1930s gentleman's yacht. She has all the technology of a modern vessel with the styling of her predecessor. Note the traditional shape of the windows in the photo at right.

Welcome Aboard

The new captain aboard Katya, Whitney B. Reiter, brings 16 years' worth of experience with him to the charter program. Katya also just added a 36-foot Palmetto towed tender for fishing and exploring.

Caribbean Debut

Shamanna will make her Caribbean debut this winter as one of the newest sailing yachts available for charter. Her Scandinavian-style interior should be welcoming after a day in the sun.

Virgin Islands Stunner

There is no question that Clarity will stand out amid the harbors full of sailing catamarans when she charters in the Virgin Islands this winter. Her 13-knot maximum speed is great for guests who enjoy island-hopping itineraries.
