I agree. We just finished a bareboat charter with Sunsail in the BVI and while I'm sure I could have found a boat available for less money, I don't think I could have gotten a significantly better overall deal.

Not only was the boat clean and in excellent shape, but there is also something to be said for the shore-side facilities, and Sunsail's in Tortola are about the best I've seen. Free storage for your luggage before and after your charter (or during, if you brought stuff you don't need on the charter), exceptionally clean and nice shower and bathroom facilities, a couple of very nice restaurants, and very personable and helpful staff.

I will not hesitate to use them again, and will gladly pay the very modest premium to do so.
