recommendations for charter locations close to SE USA?

Tiger,

Thanks for your reply. I don''t have the exact figures in front of me, but we had 4 people on a 9-day BVI bareboat charter this past June for about $1650 per person (including airfare). We ate most of our meals aboard with food we brought and ate like kings.

To be readily affordable, I would hope to keep the total costs down to $1200 per person for 9-10 days if we are careful with discretionary spending.

Frequent flier miles are almost all used up already, so affordable airfare is a big plus. Warm water would be nice, although some folks on the CWBB suggested New England, which is something to consider.

I will certainly continue researching for myself, but just wondered if someone out there had already discovered a good deal.

Again, thanks for your help.

Duane
