Here are some of the Vision 46 winning features:
- Exceptional light and ventilation below, thanks to four opening coachroof hatches, a pair of overhead “skylights,” and a series of windows to port and starboard in the hull.
- Noteworthy cockpit execution, with well-thought-out helm stations and winch placement, a clever daybed for lounging and relaxing, and an offset companionway.
- The Bavaria Docking Control system, utilizing a joystick, a bow thruster forward, and a retractable thruster aft, is a nifty solution for close-quarters maneuvering.
Horizon Yacht Charters BVI base has a Bavaria 46 Vision available in our charter fleet. As well as being available for charter, you can also participate in our “Try before you buy” offer. Order a brand new Vision 46 from us within 3 months of chartering it with us, and we will refund your charter fee!
You can watch a video of this beautiful yacht here. We also have a video of the yacht being commissioned into our fleet here.

We want to say a huge thank-you to each of our generous charter guests who have supported the Environmental Awareness Group Sea Turtle project here in Antigua & Barbuda with their many donations. Since 2008, many of our guests have been donating US$20 to this wonderful project that is headed up by the very talented Mykl Clovis. The funds were used to pay for the many beach patrols and the volunteers who tirelessly monitor the beaches for signs of turtle nesting and hatching.
For this coming charter season of 2013/2014, we have selected a different and equally worthwhile charity to support:
A.B.S.A.R Search & Rescue.
Antigua and Barbuda Search and Rescue (ABSAR) is a voluntary organization dedicated to saving lives. It is an officially recognized search and rescue service providing 24-hour coverage 365 days of the year here in Antigua and Barbuda. They work in close co-operation with the Coast Guard, fire and ambulance services.
Their volunteers hail from a variety of backgrounds, and all undergo training in seamanship, small boat handling skills, search and rescue techniques and first aid. Each of them give up their own valuable time to train and answer distress calls. You may well have seen the A.B.S.A.R. rib out monitoring events such as Antigua Sailing Week and Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta.
The ABSAR Medic Station is located at the AYCM Resort in Falmouth Harbour.
ABSAR is a Registered Non profit Charity, and relies on all of our donations for their existence. We are delighted to select A.B.S.A.R. for the new season’s donations and wish to thank all of our charter guests for your continued generosity and support.
For more information about this vital charity, please contact Jackie Ashford at email@example.com

We get quite a few requests for female charter skippers here in Antigua. This falls broadly into two areas of reasoning: some of our female guests who are on a girl’s sailing trip would rather sail with a female Captain and many girls want to be taught by a female Instructor. We are fortunate here in Antigua that we are able to recommend Heidi to our guests. Heidi has the ability to put everyone at their ease; no matter male or female and no matter what language you happen to speak.
Heidi is a very talented sailor. Firstly she is a commercially endorsed Ocean Yachtmaster and Cruising Instructor. She is also an ASA (American Sailing Association) Instructor up to ASA 105 level (Heidi can get you to Bareboat certification). Couple this with Heidi’s transatlantic deliveries and her ability to cook up a coconut battered jumbo shrimp in the galley for ten guests, and you have the perfect sea-going companion.
The evenings will always be entertaining with Captain Heidi; as well as knowing the best spots to enjoy the Antigua experience, she can share with you tales of her adventurous side (as if a transatlantic sailing trip isn’t adventurous enough!) when she hiked up to the base camp of Everest, or spent three weeks on cargo boats on the Amazon river (stowaway?).
Above it all though, Heidi will look after you, your friends (male and female) and your boat. Are you ready for an Antigua Heidi experience? Email us firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll check availability for you.
Did you know that every time you book a week’s charter with Horizon Yacht Charters, you automatically receive 7 nights and 8 days worth of sailing? If you compare this to some of the other charter companies, where a weekly rate only gives you 6 nights and 7 days sailing, you’ll realise that just one of the many benefits of chartering with Horizon includes getting a whole extra day out on the water!
Don’t forget that after you have checked in with our friendly front desk, we always aim to board you by midday, ensuring maximum sailing time for you and your friends or family. And on your return, we don’t expect to disembark your yacht until midday, allowing plenty of time for a leisurely sail back to base from your last night’s anchorage.
Horizon gives you more – another reason why you’re in the right company!
To book your 7 night/8 day charter with us contact email@example.com
Horizon Yacht Charters in Antigua welcomes Alexandra Dreams; a new Hanse 430 monohull. This stylish yacht will arrive in time for our new season charters commencing January 15 2013. She will be based in Jolly Harbour Marina on the west coast of Antigua.
The stylish Hanse 430 Alexandra Dreams
This yacht sleeps up to 8 guests in 3 double cabins and 2 single berths. This, combined with two bathrooms, offers excellent accommodation for groups of sailing friends and family, or if you prefer a crewed option, why not take a skipper and cook and let the crew take all the responsiblity. You just sit back, and enjoy the Caribbean!
She has a fully battened mainsail which we know is popular with many of our repeat guests.
Be one of the first to book our Hanse 430 by emailing our Horizon Antigua base directly: firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can call toll free +1 866 439 1089. Telephone: +1 (268) 562 4725.
