Americans across the US will gather on July Fourth to celebrate Independence Day, with some taking the opportunity to commemorate with a luxury yacht charter.
Marking the Declaration of Independence from the British Empire, the national holiday in North America is celebrated with parties, carnivals, fireworks displays, family reunions, picnics and barbecues.
The date goes back to 4th July 1776, when the Thirteen Colonies of America declared themselves to be states and no longer part of the British Empire.
For those who fancy getting away from it all, a selection of superyachts open for charter in the Bahamas. Located off the east coast of Florida, the island-chain is within easy reach of the mainland and charterers can celebrate surrounded by the utmost luxury.
Alternatively, yacht-goers can watch award-winning firework displays from the comfort of a luxury yacht in Florida. The best show are held in the City of Miami Beach, Downtown Miami, the village of Key Biscayne and Coconut Grove.
