2011/ 2012 CHRISTMAS & NEW YEARS AVAILABILITY
It's Time To Start Making Your Holiday Cruising Plans!!
If you're considering a Christmas or New Years Holiday charter yacht vacation in the Caribbean, now is the time to start making your plans.
Last year 75% of the Caribbean charter yacht fleet had been booked by August for the Holiday season. It was near impossible to find a yacht that could accommodate 8 guests by that time. As it was with last year this trend continues and the larger yachts are again booking up early.
With this in mind I'd like to suggest, if you're making plans for a Holiday sailing vacation, you go to my Charter Yacht Search Engine to check-out the yachts that are still available.
DON'T MISS THE BOAT !
No pun intended. It's never too early to book the yacht of your choice, especially during the busy Holiday Season and Spring Break time frames.
For more detailed information about booking a HOLIDAY CHARTER call Dennis at Charter Sailing Unlimited using our toll free #: 888-856-8310 or local #: 317-745-1990. You can also contact us by going to our "Information Request" page.

In a pitcher, combine lime juice, simple syrup, rum and orange juice. Add a few dashes of bitters and some grated nutmeg to taste. Serve chilled over ice. Any fruit juice can be used. Serve chilled over ice, with fruit garnishes and a sprinkling of grated nutmeg.
LIBERTE' is a magnificent yacht. The bright work (varnish) is spectacular, both inside and out. The yacht has a very traditional seagoing feel to it. One of the many highlights you'll enjoy when chartering this yacht is Captain Gordon Monsen. He is the perfect gentleman, great story teller and a very entertaining guy. His very British accent fits his personality well.
