Yachts


Come enjoy the magic of the U.S. and British Virgin Islands aboard a luxury yacht.  It’s no wonder the VI is ranked as the top cruising destination in the world!  Blessed with sheltered waters, steady winds, quaint towns, casual beachside bars, amazing snorkeling and dive sites, and miles of white sandy beaches, you are sure to have an unforgettable adventure …

 

The Virgin Islands are a melting pot of three nationalities:  The U.S. Virgin Islands (St. Thomas, St. John, St. Croix and Water Island and 50 smaller islands), The British Virgin Islands (Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anagada and 32 small islands), and the Spanish Virgin Islands (Vieques and Culebra which are part of Puerto Rico).  What makes these islands such a sailing gem is that they all lie within approximately 60 square miles of sheltered waters.

 

 

 

There are two kinds of Yacht Charters: Bareboat and Crewed.

 

With Bareboat Charters, depending on your boating experience, you may be able to charter and captain the boat yourselves, or you can simply hire a captain.  You will need to handle all of your provisioning and meals.   Sizes of vessels usually range from 36′ to 48′ and  weekly rates begin at $3,000 for the week,  and escalate on up to $10,000+ for some of the larger vessels.

 

 

Crewed Charters are the ultimate in luxury.  Your yacht will come with a captain, chef, and additional crew depending on the size of your vessel.  Sophisticated, gourmet meals are prepared, based on your preferences, and all meals and beverages are included in the price of the charter.  Weekly rates start in the $5,000 range for a 2 passenger charter, on up to $15,000+ for some of the larger 65’+ yachts, which can accommodate groups of 8 or more.
