Welcome to Nicholson Caribbean Yacht Sales!
Nicholson Caribbean Yacht Sales, the Caribbean's oldest established brokerage under the same ownership, and is now located in the Antigua Yacht Club Marina in Falmouth Harbour, Antigua. It was established in 1969 and, since that time, many famous yachts have been bought and sold through our office where the Nicholsons first started the Caribbean charter industry in 1949.
Antigua has been the center of yachting in the Caribbean and we currently boast three major mega-yacht marinas in addition to the beautiful historic sea wall of Nelson's Dockyard where a variety of yachts, classic and modern, large and small, still prefer to moor stern-to. Antigua hosts several major yachting events throughout the season including the Antigua Charter Yacht Show, Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta and Antigua Sailing Week. These events bring so many of the world's most beautiful yachts to our harbours.
Nicholson Caribbean Yacht Sales is situated in the ideal location to offer a very extensive range of yachts for sale, from small local racing or cruising boats to beautiful classics and multi-million dollar mega yachts. You will feel perfectly safe laying your boat up for the summer season in any of Antigua's many proven hurricane-safe harbours. Whether you're buying or selling a yacht, contact Nicholson Caribbean Yacht Sales and let us put our many years of yachting experience to work for you.

Barbuda Race. Her design and shallow keel have proved her
to be very difficult to beat on a reach, her most
spectacular 'first' being up against very hot competition
on the Guadeloupe Race.
No expense has been spared on her and in the last two
years she has had a major $200,000 refit including new
decks, new rig and new electric winches.
It was the owner's intention to keep her indefinitely
but his wife has elected for the superior comfort of a
