St Kitts and Nevis is a fantastic place to secure Caribbean citizenship and a powerful second passport. It’s also an incredible place to live and holiday. Whatever you do, you must go yachting in St Kitts and Nevis.
Latitude’s Managing Director in the Caribbean, Christopher Willis, explains: “Over the past five years St Kitts and Nevis has become one of the premier destinations in the Caribbean for luxury yachts and superyachts. St Kitts and Nevis is a welcome addition to the cruising triangle that also includes Antigua and St Barts.”
On an island surrounded by pristine waters, there really is no better way to rest, relax, and recharge than boarding your yacht and setting sail.
A safe place to moor your yacht is essential. St Kitts has recently opened a state-of-the-art marina perfect for luxury owners and enthusiasts.
Situated on the south western tip of the island, Christophe Harbour is a purpose-built superyacht marina. It can accommodate vessels up to 250 feet long. “The marina is perfectly positioned in the Caribbean cruising grounds between Antigua and St Maarten, making it the ideal location for a home port,” says Christopher.
Uniquely in the Caribbean, purchasing a berth at Christophe Harbour gives you the freehold title. This is a legacy investment for you and your family.
For those seeking economic citizenship in the Caribbean, berths at Christophe Harbour meet the property requirement for the St Kitts and Nevis Citizenship-by-Investment Programme. Furthermore, owners are free to lease their berths and generate revenue.
The marina offers secure alongside mooring, 24/7 dockage access, a deep-water harbour with wide turning basin, in-slip fuelling, and ample power. There is onsite customs clearance and immigration services. In addition, there’s high-speed Internet, duty-free fuel, and a 240ft floating tender dock.
The facilities surrounding the marina are impressive. There’s a private beach club for all Christophe Harbour Guests, and the SALT Plage bar & diner is just a short hop away – it’s the perfect place for a bite to eat, a few signature Jumbies, and some authentic Caribbean vibes.
Chartering yachts from St Kitts is incredibly easy and a great option for those who only intend to spend a short amount of time on the island.
There are numerous luxury charter companies operating throughout the Caribbean chain, and one of the most comprehensive online resources is www.yachtcharterfleet.com. Whether you want to sit back and relax on a motor cruiser or feel the thrill of sailing, Yacht Charter Fleet have a vessel to suit everyone.
Outside of Hurricane season (August and September) the Caribbean weather is well suited to yachting. Christopher recommends early summer, from December to May. “The weather is usually at its most settled, allowing you to explore the more exposed, but incredibly beautiful, untouched Leeward Islands just to the north of St Kitts,” he explains.
The freedom of yachting in St Kitts and Nevis is just one of this Caribban citizenship.
St Kitts & Nevis’ well-established CIP offers a streamlined path to citizenship with a contribution from $150,000.
You are able to purchase a property from the a government-approved real estate project for either $200,000 which is to be held for seven years or from $400,000 and held for five years.
Purchasing a berth at Christophe Harbour for at least $700,000 will also qualify you for citizenship. This is a fantastic option for yacht owners and enthusiasts.
