Re: First Time Chartering in BVIs

I'm in the islands right now - facilities at Nanny Cay are still top notch, and Leverick is OK as well. We'll see about Marina Cay, I'm not sure if I'll be going as there is no longer a happy hour show there. The Last Resort is great, but has not facilities to report on

I will try to stop there next week, assuming this blizzard doesn't prevent our departure!!!!!!!! Island standards are certainly lower, but somehow most seem to drop their own in step. Will report back.

I've chartered from Sunsail/Moorings in Road Town. Very nice boats, very nice facilities. I would not hesitate to charter from them again.

Places to avoid? The only thing I would say is, don't plan on using the showers or laundry facilities at Marina Cay.

Something to think about - make sure you have enough head room for all these people, if you know what I mean.

Depending on the season it was around $15k per week.

Re: First Time Chartering in BVIs

How much would a 57' cat charter for? I'm guessing $20k per week, plus crew and fees.

I agree with the above post. Voyage charters has the best Cats. I toured a 57' last May that would hold your party easily.

Try Voyage Charters, ask for Susan and tell her Chuckles sent you.
I don't get any cut, she's a personal friend.

I've been on a crewed charter on one of their 50 footers, four couples, capt and chef, wonderful time.

Re: First Time Chartering in BVIs

Four queen sized beds, plus crew quarters is going to be a huge boat, if one even exists. A catamaran is a given. Even with monohulls that advertise that kind of room, the berths are always different sizes, some are even bunks.

Everyone is different, but I would find having 10 people aboard to be difficult. Competition for deck space, galley space, dinghy space, etc, regardless of having enough sleeping space.

Edit: I stand corrected. I think this will do it for you. It looks to have crew bunks in the forepeak. Still its going to be a lot of people on top of each other.

Re: First Time Chartering in BVIs

Check with Ed Hamiltons. They can get you the best deal. You may be better off chartering 2 boats and getting a multi-boat discount.
