Re: How Expensive is the Virgin Islands to Live on Board ?

Living aboard at a dock is going to be pricey, while anchoring is going to be a lot cheaper, as chucklesR has already stated.

I've spent months in the BVI at a time (well, 3 weeks then a trip to the USVI or St. Martin, then back again as the entry visa is usually 3 or sometimes 4 weeks. My only costs are the occasional mooring ball fee in the USVI and the BVI (anchoring isn't possible in some anchorages) at $20-$30 per night, groceries, and the unfortunately frequent bar tabs. The latter two are more expensive than in the USA.

Water and ice are rather a bother. Unless you have a watermaker aboard you need to occasionally go somewhere and dock in order to water up & fuel up.
