The Burgess charter experts take all the complexities out of travelling for the holiday season.

Recharge the batteries before the festivities begin

The incredible Bahamas archipelago consists of 700 islands and more than 2,000 uninhabited cays. A paradise for explorers since time immemorial, the Bahamas is still a place for discovery today, and from impossibly romantic pink-sand beaches to blue holes, the Bahamas offer every opportunity for the waterborne

Celebrate Christmas on board

Come December and the Caribbean’s average daily temperature is in the high 70s, or between 23-26 degrees Celsius. Guests can make the most of the warm weather on board the stunning 73.5m (241.2ft) SIREN, with availability in the Caribbean and Central America this winter. With acres of deck space, she is designed for outdoor living and has a choice of sun bathing areas. Spend the morning relaxing on the large sun deck, before retreating to the main deck for a festive feast prepared by SIREN’s Michelin-starred chef. You could even take a sunset yoga class or an early evening massage.

The 73m (239.5ft) TITANIA is available in the Caribbean and The Bahamas this winter. Built for the al fresco lifestyle that these islands demand, TITANIA has intimate spaces for guests to relax and get away from it all, as well as spacious entertaining areas. And for those who simply buzz with the energy of the holiday season, a complete waterpark can be deployed from her beach club, which also converts into a nightclub to continue the celebrations into the night. If this wasn’t enough, she also has one of the largest superyacht slides ever built, standing 13m (42.7ft) tall and running from the dizzying heights of the sun deck.

With availability in the Bahamas this winter, the 49.9m (163ft) INCOGNITO is the perfect yacht for a truly memorable Christmas yacht charter. With her shallow draft of just 1.9m (6.1ft) and top speeds of up to 37 knots, she is uniquely suited to the shallow waters and island hopping itineraries that the Exumas positively encourage.

Start or end the year with a soul-charging charter

For those looking for the very best of everything in luxury, then where better to spend the last days of December or the first few weeks of January than anchored off St Barth in the Caribbean? Or, if its pure relaxation and a soul-charge you are after then the Bahamas' Exumas' archipelago might be just the medicine. Picture yourself al fresco dining on the aft deck, and looking out to foothills covered with frangipani and hibiscus while cruising aboard the 61.3m (201.1ft) KATHARINE.

With availability this winter and New Year, she is the perfect yacht on which to make the most of the great outdoors, with a mosaic-lined jacuzzi surrounded by cushions on the sun deck, and plenty of al fresco lounging and dining areas in different areas of the yacht. She also has a large beach club allowing for easy access to her watertoys, and, as an approved RYA training centre, you could even learn a new skill for the New Year.
