Book MAKAYABELLA for this year's Bequia Mount Gay Music Festival (January 26-29, 2012) and they will provide complimentary tickets to both the Friday and Saturday night shows!!

Outstanding performances by local, regional and international artists has made this music festival one of the “must see” fixtures on the season’s calendar.

Based around Dana Gillespie and her London Blues Band’s “One Night Only” performance on Friday night, this event, now extended on Bequia to four days, has been receiving increasingly rave reviews since its conception and is a foretaste of the Mustique Blues Festival which continues for a further two weeks.

The main venue is at De Reef, right on the beach in Lower Bay, Bequia, with the big performances on Friday and Saturday night followed by lazy Sunday afternoon “limin’” music to finish off the weekend.

Makayabella has taken guests to this event for the last few years and everyone (guests & crew alike) have really enjoyed it. They feel it is a great event and very much worth promoting as a focal point of a charter in the Grenadines.

Charter yacht MAKAYABELLA is a 65-foot Naval Chantier sloop, owned & operated by the British couple of John Nicholson & Susan Bruce. While having four guest cabins, Makayabella limits charter groups to a maximum of six guests (choose 3 of the 4). All guest cabins have private, ensuite heads. Two cabins have double berths, while the other two guest cabins have twin bunks (upper/lower).

RATES: All inclusive except for one dinner ashore at guests' expense, bar/beverages, cruising fees...
Winter 2011-12:
  • 2 guests=$9,000/week
  • 4 guests=$10,500/week
  • 6 guests=$12,000/week
Summer 2012:
  • 2 guests=$7,000/week
  • 4 guests=$8,500/week
  • 6 guests=$10,000/week
This sounds perfect for a music loving group of up to six guests aboard Makayabella. The charter can either start with the festival or end with it.

Makayabella suggests flights be booked either into St Vincent or Canouan or via Barbados (local flights available into St Vincent or directly into Bequia). For a group of more than four people, it can be cheaper – and much more convenient – to charter a plane privately from Barbados! Visit for more details.
