Neue Yachten 2018 Tabelle_s6Bareboat – News
From the Azores to Zadar we also offer a complete selection of more than 4,000 sailing yachts, catamarans and motor yachts, with 61 partners and 139 bases besides our bases in the Caribbean and Seychelles.

The trend for ever larger monohulls, which has already been apparent for some years, is currently culminating with the new Dufour 63 at Phoenix Yachting from Trogir.

This search for comfort and space for the average growing crew size is also reflected in the ever-growing variety of catamarans. For example, Dufour - previously known for sporty monohull yachts from 2018 on with the Dufour 48 model - is now entering this competitive market.

Barone, with its partner VPM Yacht Charter, is expanding the fleet in the southern part of the Antilles from Martinique and Guadeloupe by a total of 10 new catamarans of the types Lagoon 40, 42, 450S and 50.

Approx. 30 sailing yachts and catamarans await you for the 2018 season in Martinique and Guadeloupe and can now be booked bareboat or with crew. The bases in St. Martin and Tortola are closed after the hurricane "Irma" until 31.01.2018, departures are meanwhile already possible again.

With our real-time online booking system "QuickSearch" you can check the availabilities and prices of more than 1140 yachts and book them online.

13.12.17 - Planting Hope in British Virgin Islands

to top



Hoffnung_pflanzen_Palmen_BVIsYou have certainly seen the pictures of the BVI after the two hurricanes Irma and Maria in September - pictures of the destruction of houses, infrastructure and the beautiful nature of the BVI.

After helping local people with a first fundraising campaign, nature is now coming into focus.
Many coconut palms on the islands have been destroyed and it will take years until they will provide shade on the beaches. We support the project "planting hope" and want to work with you to create palm-fringed beaches.

With the BVI Tourist Board on Tortola and the local school children large palm trees are to be planted. The bigger the better.

We at Barone Yachting are convinced that we can do it together! Support this project with donations of 25, 50, 100 or 1000 €.

For months, the negative headlines about the consequences of the hurricanes dominated the reporting, but partly also covered an incontrovertible fact: Affected are currently only three areas or island groups. Most of the targets are unaffected, and crews can enjoy their winter escape here. On 29 pages, the big Caribbean special in YACHT 25/2017 offers all the necessary information. Andreas Fritsch from the yacht editor via Barone Yachting from Guadeloupe sailed on a Lagoon 400 from VPM Yachtcharter. The 29-page special presents the best areas without hurricane damage.
