Moving your yacht to Antigua
Located at the centre of the Leeward Islands in the Lesser Antilles, Antigua is a favourite among boat owners of all stripes and a major destination for weshipyachts.com services. As such, it is a popular spot to start, end or base your cruise of the Caribbean, and a perfect place to have your yacht transported from its berth in colder climes.
Christopher Columbus and Horatio Nelson both spent time in Antigua, and the legacy of British rule is still very much in evidence here, from the historic dockyard buildings to the appreciation of cricket. Daytime temperatures throughout the year average 27 to 31°, generally with a pleasant breeze, while the crystal clear, balmy sea is as ideal for sailing as it is for bathing.
An iconic destination
There are said to be 365 beaches along Antigua’s 87-kilometre shore. History buffs will enjoy the historic Nelson’s Dockyard with its restored Georgian buildings, as well as Falmouth Harbour next door: both these areas are also excellent for spotting some of the world’s greatest and finest yachts. Antigua is known as the sailing capital of the eastern Caribbean. During Antigua Sailing Week, over 100 yachts converge on the island from across the globe to race in one of the world’s most famous regattas.
