PROGRESS UPDATE: As the islands continue to recover from Hurricane Irma, we would like to take moment to focus on not her devastation but the rebuilding process. All update moving forward will be about the strength of the island community and the reopening of all of your island favorites.

For our St. Maarten destination, rebuilding is also well underway. We are happy to report the airport on the French side has opened and we are following Princess Juliana Airport closely with updates soon to come. In addition, the community has been working to clean up the streets, power has almost been restored across the islands and local bars are now beginning to open. We are also pleased to report that although one of our yachts did suffer damages, it is currently being repaired. Actions have been taken to replace the second yacht to which will be ready for charters over the next few weeks.

In the British Virgin Islands, Foxy's, the Willy T, Soggy Dollar and more, are scheduled to open soon. In addition, local stores, including grocery stores and other Caribbean shops have already opened! Closer to our home, The Catamaran Company, has reported that our office at Hodges Creek Marina is scheduled to open on October 5th! Our base manager has also said that most beaches remain beautiful with the blue water we all love. The locals are also anxiously waiting for the tourism industry to return so they can continue to welcome you with their Caribbean cuisine, delicious cocktails and more. With many more positive updates to come, we want to remind you that rebuilding is a process but we are ready to get back to the water!

The Vacation of a Lifetime.

Why spend a week at a beach resort when you could have 15 different beaches all to yourself? Why spend your money at an overpriced restaurant when you can enjoy a gourmet meal prepared by your very own chef? Why deal with the crowds of a cruise ship when you could enjoy the comfort of your own private catamaran? Why spend your money on just another vacation?

You probably don’t even know what you’ve been missing… but that is all about to change.


Specializing only in crewed stateroom charter vacations, Festiva Sailing Vacations sets the standard when in comes to defining “all-inclusive.” Our professional crews, with years of experience sailing throughout all corners of the world, have a focus on quality and service that continues to exceed the expectations of the many guests we have the pleasure of spending time with each season.

Once you decide on an exotic Caribbean island location or exploring the historic islands of the Mediterranean, upon arriving at our base location, you will enjoy the accommodations of a beautiful Lagoon catamaran. Choose a single stateroom and enjoy the company of two or three other adult couples, or you can reserve all guest cabins for up to six or eight guests having the entire yacht exclusively to yourself and your friends. If you have a larger group, we can fill your needs with a variety of other large crewed catamarans, with a professional staff, gourmet meals and a host of exciting activities.

We like to describe our sailing experience as 'mindless relaxation'. You pay one, all-inclusive price for seven days aboard one of our yachts and the rest is up to us. On our stateroom packages, we'll ask you first to fill out a preference form telling us some specifics about you and your vacation expectations. If you are reserving just one stateroom, we can then match you up with other couples with similar interests and expectations. This information will also give us insight on the types of activities you would like to participate in, any special information regarding birthdays, anniversaries or other events that we can help to make more memorable.

Other than two dinners ashore in our Caribbean destinations and a half board provisioning plan in the Mediterranean, the all-inclusive price covers everything you'll need:

  • 7 nights aboard one of our Lagoon catamarans in an air-conditioned guest cabin
  • Experienced Captain and Chef/Hostess
  • Prepared meals, complete with appetizers, desserts and wine
  • Open bar throughout your charter week
  • Onboard sporting equipment
  • Dinghy
  • Water and Fuel
  • Taxes

We make it very easy for you to relax and enjoy your time in paradise. Let us send you some details on a charter package that suits your needs.
