Guide to USA

Majestic, breathtaking and wildly diverse

Notable for its hugely varied coastlines, abundance of wildlife and rich maritime history, The USA has been a perennial favorite haunt of superyachts for decades. Whether you prefer the balmy climes of Florida, the majestic glacial splendor of Alaska or the all-American charm of New England, there is something for everyone to enjoy on a yacht charter around this rich and bountiful country.

Covering a vast amount of coastline, yacht charter destinations in the USA are split up into various regions from east to west;

New England
Located on America’s north east coast, New England is a hugely popular destination stretching nearly 3,500 miles and encompassing the celebrated superyacht destinations of Rhode island, Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard. Steeped in maritime history, this beautiful region set against a backdrop of rocky peaks of the Appalachian Mountains is characterised by its quaint white-wood architecture, sand dunes and lighthouses, as well as gilded mansions, glamorous yacht clubs and mouth watering array of seafood dishes. New England is the perfect yacht charter destination for those who enjoy sailing, history and culture 

On USA’s south-east coast lies the sun-kissed jewel of Florida, which hosts a string of popular yacht charter destinations, including the hedonistic party town of Miami, renowned for its luxury resorts, designer shopping and golden bronzed beaches, as well as the spectacular Florida Keys. These comprise a lush archipelago of 800 islands protected by America’s only living coral reef. These islands enjoy year-round balmy temperatures and are famed for their everglades, as well as sports fishing and serene natural beauty. These islands also provide a convenient jumping-off point for itineraries including the Bahamas and the Caribbean

Northwest America
Around to the east, you’ll find the wild rugged shorelines of California, which stretch from San Francisco down to San Diego and into Baja California. Yacht charters in this region will encounter endless miles of beautiful beaches and breathtaking scenes of breaching whales and dolphins darting across the wake of the yacht as they make their journey towards the warmer waters of Mexico. Popular hotspots include San Diego and celebrity favorite Los Angeles, as well as San francisco, which offers unhampered views for yachts moored in its vast harbor of the Golden Gate Bridge, which also plays host to an array of unique shoreside experiences. Don’t miss a tour of Alcatraz Prison and Muir Woods, where you can take in the spectacular sight of hundreds of gigantic 1000-year-old redwoods.

Head north and you’ll encounter USA’s Pacific Northwest region, including the hugely popular San Juan Islands located south of the US/Canada border. This whole region is best characterized by its stunning mountainous scenery, spectacular wildlife and friendly locals. Further north you’ll find the serene tranquility of Desolation Sound, considered one of America’s finest cruising grounds. Enjoy a spot of fishing off the back of the yacht and afterward your chef can prepare your catch for dinner onboard. Other notable destinations here include the idyllic Sunshine coast & Jervis Inlet comprising 13 marine parks offering total seclusion, majestic scenery, stunning anchorages, excellent dining options and fantastic yacht facilities. Don't miss the phenomenal Princess Louisa Inlet and Chatterbox Falls; a scenic granite-walled gorge of cascading waterfalls that has to be seen to be believed. 

For the more intrepid charterer, America's largest state of Alaska is a must-see destination and should be on everyone’s yacht charter bucket list. Lying on the Arctic Circle separated from its own country by Canada, this visually dramatic region boasts everything from astonishingly diverse wildlife and calving glaciers to breathtaking dramatic midnight sunsets. Anyone visiting the region will also be able to get up close to some of nature's most magnificent animals, such as humpback whales, orcas, caribou and majestic soaring eagles. There are endless beautiful spots to visit, and wherever you are you will not be disappointed.
