You can now charter an older and well priced Dufour 455 sailboat out of Sint Maarten in the Leeward islands of the East Caribbean.

With 3 double and 1 twin cabin plus a salon, she is ideal for 6 guests, although under circumstances additional 2 persons can be accommodated in the twin cabin and maybe even two  more in the salon.  Sailing one way to islands of Guadeloupe or Martinique may be possible, although your typical itinerary would include short trips around the Saint Martin on the French side, towards the very popular St Barths as well as across to smaller islands such as Anguilla and Montserrat.  Longer term yacht charters are also possible and we can in particular offer a good deal on those that will last for months on end.  One way and longer term charters towards Grenadines can also be arranged on this boat. With Moaby mahagony used in the interior, teak on deck and the internal grid structure reinforced with a strong fiber similar to Kevlar, the Twaron, you can rest assured that the Dufour 455 Grand Large is a sailing boat suitable for the weather conditions prevailing in the area and any regular swells that will come your way should enable you to sail across or around them with ease. 


St. Maarten is a great yachting destination and it does rival the more popular British Virgin Islands in many ways. The sailing conditions are in particular difference and make this a destination for reasonably experienced sailors providing a good mix of island hopping and exciting blue water cruising not necessarily available in the BVI’s.  Race from one to another secluded secret, shop duty-free and dine in award winning restaurants before seeking exciting scuba dive sites, snorkelling spots or even other activities such as exploring rainforests, hiking or horseback riding.   For those who are keen to relax, many chilled-out bars and restaurants or live music venues are located here too.  With Marina Port De Plaisance set in lush, tropical gardens, you could also enjoy an extra night or two in the resort, playing tennis, trying your luck in the casino or simply experience fabulous walks around where exceptional views can be enjoyed too.  All in all, your St. Maarten yacht charter is bound to be a success in many ways. With shallow keel, strong sails and plenty of room in the cockpit and the galley, this Dufour 455 sailboat will indeed prove ideal for a Caribbean sailing holiday.  Get in touch now and request your own bespoke yacht charter quote.
