We have not used this company, but would just add to the thread to STAY FAR AWAY from CONCH Charters!!!! Terrible company with people that do not care and boats that have seen better days!
Have Fun!!!

BVI Yacht Charters

My first time chartering in the BVIs was with BVI Yacht Chartering. The 50' Beneteau "Jacomina" served us well although for a 2007 model boat it showed significant signs of wear. Of particular concern was the poor condition of the dodger and dodger vinyl windows which were so clouded as to present a safety hazard. The engine and transmission vibrated badly at 7 knots. Charter boats clearly undergo a lot of wear and tear.

Office staff service ranged from surly to cheerful. You'll know what I mean when you check in. We were instructed to bypass holding tanks at all times and dump all waste directly into the sea. That struck me as odd since the boat clearly was equipped with holding tanks. Th marina is located in an industrial area with services that are primitive, at best.

Overall the experience with BVI Yacht Charters was a good one, with good value received. Just be sure to opt for one of the newer boats.

Good sounds about BVIC. I have used Sunsail twice with no complaints.

Re: BVI Yacht Charters

I think, you can find so many companies for British Virgin Island cruising. But, we need to make sure that its very affordable, spacious and the testimonials and reviews from unbiased sources.
