If you're going to get a crewed catamaran, I recommend Voyage. My wife and I did 4 crewed trips with them since 2001. VOYAGE charters - BVI yachts luxury Crewed charters, BareBoat charters, Day charters, Power yacht charters.

Who should I contact? As stated by others, search the internet for charter companies. Mooring, Sunsail, Footloose, CYOA etc...

where should I go? The USVI/BVI area is a very simple place to sail around with line of sight navigation and protected waters to get into if the wind or a large swell kicks up

What type of boat?Do you like monohulls or cats better? Monos are cheaper, smaller and more rolly on anchor. Cats of the same class will cost more, be larger and be more flat in almost every condition. Newbies sometimes are not comfortable with the heeling of a mono. What do the people want that are going? I have 4 people going on this trip...How many cabins do you need? There is a big difference between 4 adults who each require a cabin as compared to 2 married couples who would presumably share a bunk. Kids?

what else?What is the necessary comfort level of the group? Will they require A/C to be comfortable? Is a very new boat needed or one in good condition? How much money to you want to spend on the boat as opposed to enjoying some shore side activities?

I have no idea where to start or who to contact... PLEASE HELP!
I would start with the basic requirement of how many cabins you need? If you choose to take a captain for a few days or the entire trip, you will need to have a cabin for them as well. Knowing how many cabins/bunks are required you can then narrow your search down to the boat sizes and finally the amenities like A/C etc...

Feel free to PM me and ask any additional questions.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Doesn't change the fact that you're spamming the forum against the terms of service and against the full disclosure policy. If you want to advertise your charter fleet, take an ad out...

A new luser by the name of CosmosYachting was spamming for his new NYC office of a greek charter company. He's since been nuked by the mods...
