Thanks to the ongoing efforts of locals and the support of the wider yachting community, it seems that the Caribbean is very much open for business this winter.
Indeed, working with charities such as YachtAid, business owners and citizens living on the affected islands have strived to make things operational for tourism.
Superyacht owners have also been keen to help, with one charter yacht offering to make $20,000 donations to charity on select bookings.
