BVI Yacht Charters - good company?

Hi

Has anyone used BVI Yacht Charters based out of Joma Marina on the edge or Road Town. Good experience?

BVI Yacht Charters, Tortola

Cheers

Re: BVI Yacht Charters - good company?

We just got back April 17 from a 7-day charter through BVI Yacht Charters. Great experience. Five year old 43 foot Beneteau was immaculate, though we had a little trouble with the mainsail tracks being a little tight. We managed.
Very nice people in the office, helpful dock hands. Not a luxurious base but what the hell, you don't stay in the marina.

Re: BVI Yacht Charters - good company?

Bareboat fleets and crewed yacht charters are excellent to experience in any island. We need to search and find affordable yachting services before starting the trip. It’s also a relaxing feeling in a private yacht. Yachtsmen are always pampering their sailing and adventurous moments. Luxurious boats are also another option, if we have budget for an enthralling cruise.

If anyone is still inquiring about BVI Yacht Charters; we just returned from 10 days in BVI's with them. They're great. This was our second time chartering with them and I'll use them the next trip, too. Ed Hamilton brokers made the arrangements for us which streamlines the task. The price is the same for booking it myself. Koodo's to both organizations.

If you want a crewed charter, we spent a week on Sayang. Check them out
. Be sure and read some testimonials. You will find a very common opinion about the husband and wife team that operate the boat. They own the boat and are very sweet people.

What kind of shore side facilities do they have? On our last charter with Sunsail we made good use of their showers and bathrooms, as well as the luggage storage area.

It's a good company. You may also want to check out XXXXXXX. Not as big but provides really great service.

It seems odd to compare a charter brokerage that specializes in crewed charters to an actual charter company that specializes in bareboat charters from a base with shoreside amenities. That is sort of like comparing Tui to Ed Hamilton wouldn't you think? Are you a commercial vendor paying to advertise here on Sailnet? If so, welcome aboard.
