The Caribbean is one of the most interesting areas in the world for yacht chartering and the British Virgin islands represent the pinnacle of the Caribbean chartering experience. It is hard not to like the BVI: sandy beaches, excellent snorkeling, beach party bars, upscale moorings at internationally famous hotels, places of interest, and, of course, beautiful sailing and captivating sunsets. Most importantly, the geography of the BVI, with the elongated island of Tortola acting as a wave breaker against the Atlantic ocean swells, presents a calm and protected cruising area that is ideal for family charters! Read our BVI charter itinerary so you can start planning your memorable trip!
The most suitable type of vessel for exploring the BVI are crewed catamarans as they offer extended interior and exterior spaces, equipped with all the luxuries and conveniences of much bigger yachts: generators, full A/C (independent for all cabins and the saloon area), water maker etc. No wonder that crewed catamarans in the BVI are among the top selections of our clients.

Normally charters start and finish in the island of Tortola, which is conveniently situated right in the middle of the Virgin Islands archipelago. Tortola offers a convenient springboard from where you can explore all the surrounding little islands. Alternatively, catamarans that are licensed to operate within US waters can start and finish in St Thomas, right next to Tortola. The advantage with St Thomas is that it is linked with direct flights to many airports of continental USA.
