No But

Have not chartered from them in BVI only Moorings or Sunsail.

Have you tried Footloose (moorings sister co)?
or these folks who say they specialize in last minute charters........I have not tried them yet.

Yes! the problem I have is that I waited to long on our decision.
The dates I'm using is during winter school vac. So between the airlines and the charters I'm up to 7k on 7 days.
Looking for a fix.
PS.
going to check out your link
thanks

Giulietta,
yes, Moody 425 vintage 1989. We love it very fast to my standards (winds of 14-15-16 kts) easy speed of 7.90kts--8.25kts all day long and great w/25-35 kts with spill my Port or vinho/ uma sagres com termosos.

Nelson,

it looks like a 1-boat outfit but if the boat, price and timing are right...

If you are looking for an available boat you could also try TMM. If you do find something and are bouncing around the islands in December and happen to see a vessel called Solitaire then give me a call on 16 to say "hello"!
