Most BVI charters start in Tortola. Nevertheless, it’s possible to start a crewed charter in Saint Thomas in the US Virgin Island. Not all yachts are able to start the charter in the USVI. You’ll either want a yacht that is based in the USVI or we can arrange a St. Thomas pickup (with many yachts).

Types of charter

There are two primary ways to break down the BVI yacht charters: crew and power.

  1. By the primary type of power used to move the boat around:
  2. The secondary sorting is by crew that is available on the chartered yacht.

Crewed charter

The crewed charter usually includes at least a captain and a chef. The boat is provisioned according to guest wishes and preferences. Since all the work is handled by the crew (captain handles the boat and the chef handles the food, and often more (diving, watersports)), the guests can really have a relaxed, laid back time.

Captain only charter

Captain only charters are a good middle ground between the crewed charters and the bareboat charters. It’s very much like car rental. You do the paperwork and rent the boat. Local experience of the crew should not be underestimated. A captain will know secret spots and is able to quickly analyze your preferences and types of vacation you wish (or need).

Common Issues On a BVI Yacht Charters

  • I got a boat from USVI – will I find out, after I sign the contract, that we’ll not go to the BVI at all?
  • All Inclusive – what does it include?
  • Air Conditioning – does it run during the night?
  • APA- Advance Provisioning Allowance – are you going to have a daily overview?
  • Crew – what is the real crew feedback? How did they do on their last charters?
  • Crew Change – is your crew a part of the contract?

Not So Obvious Issues

  • are your cruising taxes included?
  • how long is your immigration procedure going to take? Minutes or hours?
  • will I loose a day in order to catch a Ferry to get a STT morning flight?

Bareboat charter

Bareboat charter is the budget friendly option for qualified sailors. Originally intended for people who know the area, the price convenience caused that today, many of the bareboat captains would be better off with a captain only charter. If you haven’t been to the BVI before or you haven’t that much experience sailing the boat you wish to charter (rent), consider a captain only charter, you will thank us later:) At the moment, we don’t include bareboats in our search, please inquire directly and we can find a matching bareboat for you.

About the BVI

Most people would start with 50 islands and cays, right? Let’s start with the relaxed and chilled atmosphere where liming was invented (drinking/eating and chilling for hours without a defined schedule). It’s the freedom that you can have when sail to bars like Willy T, the optimism and positive energy that you recuperate over the course of your vacation, that’s what makes the BVI special.

You can immediately tell the people who arrived yesterday. Full of stress, solving small things… a bundle of nerves that we turn into after prolonged experience with the “real world.” After a few painkillers (the BVI signature drink) or Frozen Margaritas (Willy T is the place), every pain diminishes and the problems fade away. These same people leave after a week smiling, optimistic and full of energy.

Snorkeling at the Indians, diving the Wreck of Rhone, surfing at Bomba Shack (Capoons Bay) or  a visit to The Baths (Virgin Gorda) are the part of charter that provide those memorable moments people have been coming back for.
