    Enticed by the beautiful Balearics and the magic of Spain, but put off by the extra 21% payable in VAT?

    Do you dream in sail or power? Be honest, now. Everyone dreams of a charter yacht vacation in the South Pacific, where sandy white beaches and swaying palm trees somehow remove stress from life even faster than a fine bottle of Cabernet or Chardonnay. But in those dreams, some people see sails billowing against the sunset while other people hear the bubbling of the hot tub on a megayacht’s sundeck. When you close your eyes, what is in your South Pacific yacht charter dreams? It’s okay if you can’t choose—we can’t, either, and luckily for 2014, none of us has to express a preference.

    Alaska is a fantastic destination for luxury yacht charter. It’s a stunning place filled with towering glaciers, breaching whales and breathtaking icebergs. If you cruise there even one time, you might find yourself wondering, “Where are all the megayachts?” In other beautiful places, such as St. Tropez and Sint Maarten, charter yachts pack the coastlines and marinas, but in Alaska, they are few and far between.

    When it comes to holidays and luxury yacht charter, most people think of Christmas and New Year’s—including yacht owners, who charge premium rates during those weeks. Far fewer people consider Easter, which happens to be a great time of year to cruise in the Bahamas, a fantastic destination for a family getaway. Bahamas Photo Courtesy of: David Lewis Daily high temperatures are in the low 80s during April in the Bahamas, with nighttime lows around 70. That means it’s plenty warm for swimming and water sports, but not sweltering with humidity like it can be during the summer months.

  • Get That Used Grand Banks Trawler Underway – The Tax Man Cometh

    Mike Dickens
    16 Apr 2014 | 4:00 am
    I read an article online this morning which reviewed a case where a New England boater had been cruising the east coast aboard his used Grand Banks trawler while doing the Great Loop. When this particular boater returned home, he received a tax bill in the mail from NC wanting him to pay personal property taxes on the value of his trawler. They claimed he had over stayed his welcome and now owed them some tax money.  I have heard that at least SC and NC have tax collectors walking the docks. I recently heard a story that a mega yacht at Hilton Head that was presented a hefty tax bill last…
