Yacht Chartering in the Grenadines

Explore the Caribbean's newest hot spot

grenadinesThe Grenadine Islands are the Carribean’s newest hotspot, and United Yacht Sales Charter Division would love to take you there!

The Grenadines are a chain of islands in the south-eastern Caribbean stretching from Saint Vincent to Grenada. The recent hurricanes have ruined a large portion of the eastern Carribean, however, the Grenadines have been left untouched. United Yacht Charter Division and the aptly named “I Love This Boat“, would love to take you on a journey through the Grenadines. Let us walk you through an example itinerary of this amazing a 154 foot Christensen yacht for charter that comfortably sleeps up to 10 guests.

Grenada – Day 1: Arrive at ILTB at Port St. Louis marina, in St George. The crew will welcome you aboard with a chilled Island cocktail or champagne. After a quick briefing from the captain and once you are settled onboard the fun will begin. If you choose to tour the many sites of the island and get a taste of the local color this can all be pre-arranged prior to your arrival.

Grenada is definitely worth the time to spend seeing the sites.  Also, The island of Grenada is known as the “The Spice Island” nutmeg, cocoa plants and fruit are just a few of the lush foliage on this jungle island. Grenada itself offers plenty to do. There are many hiking trails and tours available. Seven sister waterfalls, Etang Nature reserve, driving tours throughout the island, chocolate factory tour, or the River Antoine rum factory tour. The list of attractions goes on and on! When you are done with your day come have a wonderful dinner onboard or dine at one of the many lovely local restaurants in St. George.
