Cmdr. Vernon Nicholson, O.B.E., R.N.

Nicholson Yacht Charter

Pearly pink dawns, sunlit afternoons, and soft, balmy evenings… the aroma of fresh coffee coming from the galley as you take a morning swim … the pleasures of having an attentive crew …. And the freedom of having your own yacht...

Go ahead – picture yourself there. You step aboard, and the dedicated crew greets you with a warm smile and a tall, cool glass. Your cabin is spacious and luxurious, with beautiful décor and usually with ensuite bathroom. As you unpack, your yacht tugs at its anchor, ready to whisk you off to exotic places.

As the days unfold, you cruise from one beautiful anchorage to the next, from one new adventure to another. In some areas, where the islands are close together, you can visit several anchorages in the same day. in fact you will surely miss something if you go below. But this is a vacation, a relaxing time. There is no set schedule – you can go anywhere you like, whenever you like, and spend as much time underway or at anchor as you like. One day, let your crew arrange a beach barbecue, or a picnic by a waterfall. Another day, how about a sightseeing excursion to historic sites, quaint villages, and colorful markets? Your crew know where the best shopping is , too!

And don’t forget to stop at a local pub for a refreshing rum punch. A game of golf or a rendezvous dive? Just ask. There’s always time for beachcombing and snorkeling, or just reading a good book while you work on your tan. Each day, you savor delicious meals prepared especially for you by your chef. All you have to do is enjoy.
