Life on a yacht can seem like a breeze from afar. But if you get caught on a boat in the wrong place out of season, it can spell serious trouble for you and your crew.

How Long Is Yachting Season?

Generally, the yachting calendar breaks down into two seasons, the Winter/Summer, spanning across six months each. The seasons change according to weather patterns at certain positions on the globe, at a given time on the calendar. The summer season rolls out from May to October, with the areas such as the Mediterranean Sea the most popular destinations. The winter season is in session from November thru April, and boaters head towards the equator to the Caribbean Sea and the Indian Ocean. The peak season for yachts around the world is during the tail-end of the holiday season.

As you can see, the yachting season spans the entire calendar and sometimes even overlaps, depending on the year. So off-seasons in yachting are predicated on your location. Places in the Atlantic ocean like the Bahamas have become year-round destinations for yachts. The calmer waters and soothing climate of the Atlantic islands make for a perfect place to drop anchor for an extended period.

Elsewhere, the yachting community is tight as a sailor’s knot, and each captain knows when it’s time to leave port for new waters. Whether you are looking to sail in the summer, winter, or the entire year, you can find your way to an open port across the globe.
