St. Thomas is a top-rated Caribbean destination in part because of its proximity to many nearby islands—more than a dozen in a 50-mile radius, including U.S. and British Virgin Isles. Savvy travelers maximize this multi-destination trip option via yacht, small plane, or helicopter.
The Standard Aviation team most highly recommends motor-yacht ELITE to jet clientele. A 28-meter Sunseeker, it offers guests a bespoke setting in which to enjoy their holiday.

Common destinations for M/Y ELITE include Anegada, Cooper Island, Jost Van Dyke, Salt Island, St. John, and Virgin Gorda. From itineraries to menus, every element of a client’s charter is custom-tailored to enrich the experience of the specific guests coming aboard.
