Over 100+ superyachts gathered in St Barths for New Year’s celebrations

There is one place to be for the end of the year if you’re a billionaire with a yacht: the Caribbean Island of St. Barts. And people like Diddy, Jerry Jones, Bernie Ecclestone, and more are already there, mooring their luxury yachts for their annual holiday.

According to data provided by Global Fleet Tracker, there are 131 yachts more than 24 metres in length currently anchored off the leeward shores of St Barths, four of which surpass the 100-metre mark. While the total figure falls slightly short of the 142 visiting yachts recorded in 2019, it marks the triumphant return of the fleet following several years of disruption. Take a look at some of the most impressive vessels at anchor…

Here is a selection of some of the largest yachts that are in and around St. Barths for the holidays. It is important to note that yachts are often privately chartered during the holidays, so you may never see their wealthy owners. Detailed positions and owner information was sourced by my friends at Marine Traffic
