Fusion of cultures

The Caribbean island of St Martin offers a classic mix of open cruising and island hopping opportunities. The nautically named, Captain Oliver’s Marina at Oyster Pond, St Martin is a protected lagoon surrounded by hills and a beautiful beach. It's the perfect starting point for a St Martin bareboat sailing holiday. Whether it's long, challenging open cruising or short island hops you desire, you can choose either here. St Martin is a melting pot of dual nationalities - half the island is French, the other Dutch – with a sprinkling of Caribbean culture in the mix for good measure.

A St Martin bareboat yacht charter is suitable for confident sailors who will enjoy favourable winds and the medium seas of this incredible yachting haven. Snorkel or swim at the exotic Anise de Colombia, a stunning horseshoe-shaped bay considered one of the finest in the Caribbean. Or be seen among the cool and chic at Gustavo with its French ambience, elegant boutiques, jewellers and vintage markets - perfect for a spot of retail therapy. The liveliest sailing is around Christmas and the lightest is during the summer months.
