YOUR TIME IS VALUABLE, DON'T WASTE A MINUTE OF IT!
BEAUTIFUL NEW BOATS, IMPECCABLE MAINTENANCE, AND FRIENDLY, KNOWLEDGEABLE STAFF
Virgin Islands Yacht Charters directly manages the charter fleet. We are not a broker. We do work with many reputable and trustworthy charter brokers who regularly book our boats and are familiar with our procedures and knowledgeable of the local cruising grounds. At the same time, there are many brokers out there who know absolutely nothing about our fleet OR even the Virgin Islands themselves. Please be aware.
Catamarans are wonderfully spacious and provide ample area for moving around. Whether it is in the cockpit or salon which spans over both hulls allowing for a larger area inside, the foredeck with the trampoline for sun-tanning, or the great lounging area on the top deck you will enjoy the variety of ways to spend your day on the water. Cats are much more stable than their counterparts which can be much better for new or inexperienced sailors who haven't quite found their sea legs yet or those who are prone to seasickness. Two engines allow for greater maneuverability when in a marina or picking up mooring balls and thus, have gained popularity in recent years. And, you will love the panoramic views!
What People Are Saying . . .
The Osborn Family
VIYC was one of the best charter companies we've used. They keep their word and honor their promises. They promptly fix stuff and immediately talk us through solvable problems. They know the boat, the waters, and sailing area, the culture.
Scuby's operations briefing was one of the best I've attended in my years of chartering.
I had the pleasure of chartering a yacht from Virgin Islands Yacht Charters out of Compass Point, St Thomas. I have chartered numerous yachts over the years; as well as operated by own charter sailing yacht for five years. Kristi and Jim, the owners, do an outstanding job of assuring the yacht is ready to go and in top shipshape. Any follow up or support if needed is prompt and efficient. I highly recommend Virgin Islands Yacht Charters.

Jim & Kristi,
Thanks so much for completing our experience. Our past charter experiences in the BVI were a mixed bag of paradise, apathetic service, and mechanically challenged yachts. God made the islands beautiful, you two made sailing them a pleasure by providing friendly service and an excellent line of yachts. This experience felt less like a charter and more like borrowing a great boat from old friends.
We’ll be back… ~Rev. Seth Sundstrom
