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.





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.



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.



Conch Charters still offers "The best deals on keels" in the BVI and they are now pleased to welcome the Beneteau Cyclades 50 to their fleet. With four cabins, four heads, an AC and a generator, this 2006 boat is ideal for a holiday charter.

Conch's deals last throughout the spring and summer, including 10 days for the price of 7 in April, 9 for the price of 7 in May and 10 for the price of 7 from July 16 to Nov 7. As always, repeat guests receive 10 percent off.



The Moorings welcomes a new beauty to their fleet of charter bareboats. The Moorings 50.5 monohull features a 5-cabin, 5-head layout for a luxurious experience aboard a study boat. Designed by Berret-Racoupeau and custom-built by Beneteau for The Moorings, the boat debuted at the Annapolis Boat Show and is now available in The Moorings' bases in the BVI, St. Lucia, St. Martin, Greece and Grenada, where a brand new base opened earlier this season.





For charter guests seeking a slightly different sailing vacation, Star Clippers is offering up to 40 percent off on six different holiday-season sailing trips. Sail the Caribbean on Royal Clipper or Star Clipper starting December 18, or visit Costa Rica on Star Flyer which sets sail on December 19.






Fair Wind Sailing has once again expanded its breadth of classes, now offering Advanced Sailing Lessons in the Caribbean in the winter and in the Great Lakes in the summer. These classes feature full instruction in coastal navigation, night-time sailing and night-time MOB.







During Season A and B,TMM Yacht Charters is offering 10 percent off the listed price of their Lagoon 470 Smoke and Roses, the Nautitech 47 Shawna Raye and the powercats, Catamania and Dixie Rodes. In addition, all charters for the rest of January are now offered at C season rates, while all February charters are offered at B season rates.
