Lastminute charters in the Exumas is covid-19 free and highly recommendable!

Flagship of the French builder when it comes to power boats, the COLETTE is fully equipped Lagoon 630 powercat offering huge interior and deck spaces for an ideal social distancing or self-isolation yachting holiday in the Caribbean. Based in Georgetown, she is the boat to explore the Exumas …


Huge in presence and volume as well as value, the Lagoon 630 powercats are very elegant and comfortable charter yachts.  Not as popular as the sailing equivalent, they are equally well designed, with contemporary interior and modern exterior though.  Designed by naval architects Van Peteghem and Lauriot Prevos (VPLP), she is around 2ft longer, optimised to whistand higher speeds and holds her 2x 300hp diesel engines by Volvo in re-inforced compartments.


One of the main advantages
of a powercat is space. On Lagoon 630 there is a huge amount of it simply due to the impressive 10m/32.5ft beam which no motor yacht in this price range can offer.  Similar beam is only available on superyachts of around 50m in fact, thus buying or chartering a new power cat if you require space alone is best considered with a powercat such as COLETTE. On top of the huge deck and interior that the beam creates, the guests or owners on board of Lagoon 630 powercat can also enjoy a functional flybridge.  Here, the clients can find 2x helm positions, a wet bar and a large dining table for up to 8 guests.  Lounging area is ideal for sunbathing or general relaxing, although on some boats there is a space for a Jacuzzi too.  Sliding sunroofs are optional and can be used in most weather situations; on board of Colette in form of folding fabric sunroof, allowing you to optimise sunlight effects.  From here you can enjoy unobstructed views and let the sea breezes clear your mind. 

LAGOON 630 Powercat

The main advantages of the boat such as COLETTE are therefore clear to see.  Huge space creates lots of options for all family members and up to 4 couples can get together to enjoy a yachting holiday at the same time.  Sharing costs is at times not only beneficial, but obligatory and this is where a boat such as Lagoon 630 powercat can have lots of advantages. Soft ride is another one and combining this stability at sea with ocean-crossing range is why COLETTE may also be available in the Mediterranean this summer. Cruising in the Exumas however has its own advantages and during these final weeks of dangers associated with lack of fully-encompassing vaccination programmes across the World, finding a hide-out in one of the outer Exumas islands is perfect way to self-isolate.  Add to this quality of finish by an established boat builder, optional layouts and interiors for new owners and high quality Nauta design on Colette and everyone can find plenty of reasons to consider chartering or buying a boat such as LAGOON 630 POWERCAT.


Your typical charter itinerary here
is likely to cover dozens out of a total of 360+ islands and cays..  With a fast power cat, locations such as Georgetown and Highborne Cay are not far from each other so that following your start and embarkation, you can easily reach a new destionation every day.  Here at Highborne cay you can see Iguanas by taking a tender ride to Allen Cay where snorkelling is also recommended, while the uninhabitted beach at Horseshoe bay, back at your boats mooring will be ideal for swimming.  On top you will most likley visit numerous other locations and Norman Cay and Staniel Cay are likley to be the most popular ones.  At Warderick Wells Cay, which is one of the best shelterred locations and a National Park, you are likely to spend all day and night in particular during adverse weather occasions.. You may also consider visiting Shround Cay and Rose Island or Hawksbill Cay where secluded beaches and safe moorings can be found in abundance.   Whatever your itinerary, crew on board of your chosen charter yacht will be able to advise on final route and on occasion also record a video or make a few photos for long-lasting memories of your perfect sailing holiday in the Bahamas.


M/Y COLETTE charters from 33,000 US$‘s per week
for 2 persons with rates going as high as 36,000 US$‘s per week for up to 8 guests. The charter rates are inclusive of 7x breakfasts, 6x lunches and 6x dinners which makes it ideal to explore remote and uninahbitted islands of Exumas.  During the peak of the season though, there is a surcharge to pay as for Christmas and New Year weeks, the charter rates increase to 42,000 US$‘s per week. When chartering in the BAHAMAS, there is also a 4% Government tax to be paid and a fixed fee of 2,000 US$‘s as a fixed fuel charge.   M/Y COLETTE will also accept one way charters towards locations such as St Martin or St Barths (2,500 US$‘s) or Antigua (5,000 US$‘s). Both these are from Virgin Islands. For one way charters between the Staniel Cay and Nassau, the boat charges fixed fee of 2,000 US$‘s however.
