Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao are not typically included in lists of Caribbean yacht charter destinations, but a handful of proper yachts are now calling the ABCs their home base, and the newest is the 86-foot Sunseeker Lilly.
She just joined the charter fleet at Ocean Independence, with availability starting the first week of November. Lilly will be based in Curacao year-round, offering substantial local knowledge and making the most of average month-to-month temperatures of about 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Lilly accommodates eight guests in four staterooms. She’s a 2012 build. According to the Sunseeker website, the model is capable of top speeds near 30 knots — plenty fast for a one-week itinerary in this southern Caribbean archipelago. The lowest weekly base rate is $35,000.
