Looking for BVI "by the cabin" charter

Does anybody has experience with chartering a crewed sailboat by the cabin ? I am looking to sail at BVI next April. Any help will be welcome.

If you are looking for a crewed boat, you won't be doing the sailing presumably. Think about one of the windjammers. I've never been aboard, but know those who have and they enjoyed it.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

I came across this outfit at a recent sailing show Welcome to Festiva Sailing Vacations!

I have no experience with them, but while talking to the representative a couple approached and told me they had gone on a Festiva vacation and really enjoyed it.
ymmv

I had a very unfortunate experience with Festiva a few years ago. We were anchored in White Bay JVD BVI. A big Festiva crewed cat came blowing through the anchorage and right through the people swimming between anchored boats and the beach. The company skipper was oblivious. I even contacted the company and was told "all our skippers are professionals and know what they are doing."

I was not impressed.

sail fast and eat well, dave
