Re: Our first bareboat charter BVI 2014
I don't know how they all operate, but neither of the two operators I've used in BVI (Moorings and Horizon) suggested prepaid fuel. I have been required to bring the boat back full, as I received it full. Horizon offers a service for $75, where you can bring her back and they will top her off later. You still pay for whatever she takes. This service can be worth it, rather than waiting to land a busy fuel dock when you have a plane or ferry to catch. I defaulted to it last time, but would probably just plan on it going forward.
I'm surprised you don't charter with Horizon. They have a 54ds that looks a like like your signature and have a 57' in case you get foot-itis.
