Carribean Rib Charter

Hi - I'm looking for a 7m plus rib to charter in the Carribean for a weeks holiday later the year. Are there any operators here that can help with this ?

Actually I'm (at this stage) open minded. Two years ago we island hopped around Croatia and we'd like to repeat this in the Caribbean. I can only find sailing boats or very very large motor boats to charter on the web.

It can get vey hot over there, an open rib might not be ideal, something with a bimini for shade might work better. Many years ago I hired a sportsboat with a bimini in St John, they may still do that type of thing.

Center console fast fishing boats are the norm for hire over there rather than RIBs. Most will come with a bimini top. I can't think of any specific locations off the top of my head (spent 6 months last winter cruising round the Carib) but there are places out there.

The Abacos are a lot of fun to explore. You can rent a 23' Albury and bounce around the various islands and easily spend a week and come back and discover more. Stay in Hope Town for the best experience in my opinion.
