Have you decided to take your family away to the British Virgin Islands but need inspiration on where to go while you’re there?
After inspecting more than 50 yachts during the 2014 BVI Charter Show, the only way to travel around the islands is in style aboard one of our top crewed catamarans. After extensive review, we are delighted to announce our Top 5 BVI charter yachts from this year’s show:
Lambros, one of our specialist Caribbean charter brokers, attended the 32nd Annual BVI Charter Yacht Show from the 7th to the 10th of November this year! He was very impressed with the turnout at this year’s show as well as the quality of yachts present. Read on to see his comments and favoriteyachts!
“As last year, the annual BVI Charter Yacht Show, organized by the BVI Charter Yacht Society, took place in Nanny Cay Marina, Tortola, BVI. The 2013 show has been the biggest show so far with a record number of 77 participating boats. In this year’s show, the foremost display was clearly of crewed catamarans which, in an area where crewed cats reign supreme, is definitely on the up… Overall, the level of boats was rather impressive with lots of new entries in the area including many modern boats with professional crews. Also, the existing boats were in pristine condition.“
“Particularly interesting were the new Fountaine Pajot catamarans! These are 3rd generation design models, with an excellent use of space and so many amenities that it would take me forever to mention them all!
Some notable points are:
– They are super eco-friendly boats, incorporating powerful solar panels that render them power-sufficient (when no A/C is used of course!)
– They both feature 5 very spacious interior cabins
– They boast a very clever “tender garage” in the stern, with huge sunbathing areas on top”
As the summer draws closer and closer with every day that passes, so Christmas nears too. Similar to every year, one of the most popular destinations worldwide for Christmas and New Year charters is the British Virgin Islands. The yacht of choice out of Tortola and the British Virgin Islands is a crewed catamaran, and this year we have three beautiful new Fountaine Pajots to offer.
The first of the three new stunning crewed catamarans is ALETHEIA, a Fountaine Pajot 70. She accommodates up to 10 guests in 5 gorgeous cabins. On board, there is ample space for charter guests to enjoy, and on deck and on the flybridge, yet more space can be enjoyed. She has a fabulous crew of 3, including Captain Donald, who is a PADI Diving Instructor. This means that charter guests of ALETHEIA will be given the opportunity, should they want, to go diving straight off the yacht.
ALETHEIA has two smaller sister boats, 'twins' if you like, as they are of the same size. The first of the two is FLOW, that is also new to the charter market, and available in the British Virgin Islands. FLOW is a 59 foot crewed catamaran, that also accommodates for up to 10 guests in 5 cabins. She too has brilliant outdoor space, that offers guests a chance to dine al fresco every day. As with her two sister catamarans, FLOW has on board a small plethora of water toys, that can always be made use of.
The third of these brand new Fountaine Pajots is ALEGRIA, also 59 foot catamaran, with 2 crew members. She is identical to FLOW, both on the exterior and interior, meaning both of them are fantastic options for your charter.
