Welcome to Nicholson Yacht Charters

Nicholson Yacht Charters has successfully matched clients with exactly the right yacht, tailoring holidays to fulfill their client’s highest expectations, since 1949.

We represent a fleet of carefully chosen sail and power yachts, available with captain and crew for private or corporate charter for 2 to 12 guests in the Mediterranean, Caribbean, North America, Southeast Asia, South Pacific and Indian Ocean. Tandem Charters can also be arranged for larger parties.

What is a Nicholson Yacht Charter? It is evenings spent on deck under a starlit sky. It is the smell of fresh coffee from the galley as you take a morning swim. It is the exhilaration of sail as you feel the wind in your face and the tug of the ship’s wheel. It is pearly pink dawns, sunlit afternoons, and quiet evening breezes. It is exotic destinations ashore, sometimes two and three all in one day.

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.
