Yacht Charter in Antigua

Antigua is the geographical and yachting centre of the Caribbean, and often the first port of call for yachts crossing the Atlantic from Europe. It used to be the British Royal Navy’s main Caribbean base from where it controlled the trade routes between the old and the new worlds. Antigua has been hugely important in the growth of the yacht charter industry in the Caribbean. It was from here that the first charters set out from English Harbour in 1949 to discover the islands 365 beaches – one for every day of the year. In December 2011, Antigua will host its 50th international yacht show, one of the leading yachting events in the world.
