Sympathetic to your cause

I am new to Sailnet, but no to the idea of being an owner-operator of crewed yacht charters in the BVI. Yes, we know it is fairly saturated but that many companies have recently failed. My husband and I are looking very seriously into this and would be happy to trade information as we continue to learn. We too have a target market in our area of people who have a great interest in booking with us. Our questions are more logistical...as US citizens is it best to be a US business or a BVI registered business? Are their reliable & reasonable repair marinas? Are there restrictions on how long we can run the charters each year as US owner operators? Is a visa or work permit of some sort required?
