Sunsail has just launched a new website that makes finding their specials a breeze, weather its on monohulls, multihulls or flotillas. From now until the end of April, all charter boats under 43ft are 15 percent off, and in the month of May, monohulls in the Caribbean are 20 percent off. For summer charters between June 1 and October 31, these savings can be as great as 25 percent.



If you're ready to incorporate a new twist into your annual family charter vacation, consider joining one of Sunsail's flotillas in the BVI or St. Vincent for one or two weeks this summer. For an even more unique experience, sign up for the innaugural SAIL-hosted Family Fun Flotilla in the BVIs this June, where SAIL will lead Sunsail boats in a week of family fun on the water.

If you've got a bit of flexibility and are looking to get away soon, CYOA Yacht Charters is offering all remaining unsold dates between now and January 31, 2011 at Season C pricing and all charters in February at Season B pricing. Located just a five-minute cab ride from the St. Thomas airport, CYOA's charter base is quick and easy to get to, no matter where you hail from.



Estero



Down in sunny St. Thomas, Island Yacht Charters is pleased to welcome the all-new 2010 Island Packet Estero to its fleet of bareboats available for charter. As with all of their bareboats, the new Estero features solar panels and biodegradable toilet paper and cleansers in IYC's ongoing effort to keep their business environmentally friendly.



horizon

Back in November, Horizon Yacht Charters added a whole new fleet to its BVI bases: a fleet of Standup Paddle Boards, or "SUPs." For just $175, charterers can now rent a SUP for a full 7-night charter and try out this hot new craze as another means of cruising around the islands. SUPs are fun, convenient and provide a great island work out.

Horizon is also excited to welcome four new boats to its fleets: a new Bavaria 45 in Grenada, a Bavaria 36 and 45 in the BVI and Bavaria 40 in Antigua.
