As usual, it turned out to be an unforgettable night of festivities, with high-profile guests and celebrities making their appearances in this exclusive destination.
Playing host to an outstanding fleet of visiting luxury charter yachts, Gustavia Harbor is the main hub of festivities with its 60 coveted berths and ample anchorage in the bay. Renowned as being one of the most exciting times of the year to embark on a St Barts yacht charter, charter guests can indulge in iconic parties with world-class DJs, mingle with celebrities, and spectate the popular New Year's Eve Regatta.
Setting the sky alight with an impressive display of fireworks, the party scene around Gustavia is nothing short of spectacular.

Showcasing the high-end appeal of the annual celebrations for visiting Caribbean yacht charters, the 2023 event witnessed the arrival of some truly sensational motor yachts including the likes of the captivating 115m (377ft) charter yacht AHPO. Namely, the largest private yacht charter to be seen in the vicinity of the New Year's celebrations, this iconic Lurssen charter yacht is a sight to behold with her foredeck helipad, extensive beach club, and indulgent owner's duplex.
