Top 10 BVI Motor Yachts

The British Virgin Islands are ideal for a motor yacht charter. It’s an area that has long been the mecca of sailing but lately has seen a move towards motor yachts and power catamarans. The reasons for this shift are manifold: the market for a sailing destination has been saturated, with a lot of requests back-logged from COVID, and not enough yacht charters available.

Additionally, the shorter sailing distances required for motor yachts translate to greater fuel efficiency. Another factor contributing to the increasing popularity of motor yacht charter in these islands is the construction of new marinas that are capable of accommodating larger vessels.

The British Virgin Islands and especially the North Sound is known for the Billionaires’ Playground, with a booming real estate market around the natural beauty provided by crystal clear waters, secluded coves, and verdant lands in the leeward islands.

The surrounding main islands are also home to numerous natural parks, either on land or on the sea, such as the marvelous Baths Marine Park, which offers a fantastic opportunity to explore the natural beauty of the area.
