The cost of food and housing in the BVI is roughly equivalent to living in the U.K. (outside of London, let us say Birmingham or Manchester). Food prices are quite high and housing is as well, except that the quality of said housing might be rather low if you are looking for something on the cheaper side. It might be possible for your charter company to allow you use of bunk space on unused boats, but $1300 a month will make it difficult to save a lot. I don't know about health insurance prices, either.
I can recommend looking at BVI Traveltalk online, there are a number of expats on that forum who can give you more detailed information.

Re: Tortola-living accomodations

I really liked the hummingbird bead and breakfast. Its where I stay when I go to Tortola for business. Good price, comfortable rooms, and easy access to everything.

Re: Tortola-living accomodations

Vacation rentals are one option, there are also hostels and rental apartments houses, rooms. It all depends how much you want to spend either money or time in your living place.
