Provisioning - Road Town

Last year I chartered a 4700 Cat out of Road Town. We had 8 folks as well. The Moorings has an option called "Partial Provisioning" which was great for us as I was not familiar with Road Town and the markets, etc. The Partial Provisioning provided for 3 full dinners, plus all breakfasts and lunches. Additionally I pre-ordered a few bottles of wine as the prices seemed reasonable. If I remember correctly, the cost of partial provisioning was about 35 bucks a person, per day. Not a bad deal, especially if you've not provisioned before. Road town has markets and there is plenty of taxis waiting at the marina to take you to any one of them. The charter company should send you a menu to choose from if you choose this option. Good luck!
