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.

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

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.

familyofun 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!!!

Steer clear of TMM

My uncle las been sailing for 15 years. Long story short. We charted the Shauna Raye out of Tortola with TMM this past June. A few days in it took on water. We have pictures of old dingy line damage on the prop that was already grown over. Plus, rusted and broken motor mounts. The water was leaking through the drive shaft diaphragm. Actually, the whole boat was beat up. Anyway, TMM took the boat from us with our luggage still on board. Blamed the problems on us. They abandoned us at the bitter end. Oh yea, and kept all our money for the rest of the charter.

So, stay away from TMM and hopefully your vacation will be better than ours. We are currently seeking legal help to get our money back for the days we didn't have the boat.

Winterstale Happy to hear this! I am leaving for a charter in two weeks - we're sailing their 40CC, "Trinity", in the BVI.

sailtimeci We have annual flotillas in the BVI and at some point have chartered all of the boats in the BVIYC fleet. We very rarely have any problems with the boats and if we do the company is quick to make things right. They are a highlight of our trip every year!

RealityCheck I've also used BVIYC and had great experience with them. Only beware... I bought a boat because I loved it so much and now living on it in da islands.
