Traveling now in tropical waters, Exumas-Bahamas Yacht Charters MIDNIGHT-MOON is your own private floating retreat.

The Exumas

The Exumas are an archipelago of 365 cays and islands that begin 35 miles southeast of Nassau. Once called Yumey and Suma (names of Amer-Indian origin), the islands have changed over the years.

Today, the Exumas encompasses three major areas: Great Exuma, Little Exuma, and The Exuma Cays.

Each area offers a uniquely Bahamian experience. Great Exuma and Little Exuma have laid-back surroundings. The Exuma Cays are also a playground for the rich and famous, boasting numerous private homes and luxury resorts. The Exumas are also rich in history, as British Loyalists settled them with their slaves following the American Revolution.


MIDNIGHT-MOON, a sleek and modern 85-foot Horizon, is an amazingly comfortable yacht.

Moreover, this luxurious cruising yacht offers the comfort, privacy, amenities, and space one would typically only find on much larger motor yachts without the associated running costs.

The main deck has all the primary living areas, such as the aft deck. It has lounging for 8, a bar, and ample storage lockers. Additionally, the large saloon offers seating for 8, separate inside formal dining for 8, and a gourmet galley.

The flybridge is a fantastic place to gather for afternoon drinks. It has large comfortable dining/lounging for up to 10, a well-equipped bar with seating for 5, a day head, and a separate BBQ area.
