About Us

The Story of how the St. Thomas fleet happened from the Owners, Kristi and Jim Query…

Virgin Islands Yacht Charters

Even though VIYC was officially launched in 2016, the road that led us to this point began in 2012 with a call to Chris Bent at Atlantic Cruising Yachts regarding purchasing a sailing catamaran. Within days, we had signed a purchase agreement and were moving forward with the purchase of Being Nauti, a beautiful Fountaine Pajot Lipari 41.

We truly began to fall in love with Being Nauti when we traveled to Atlantic Cruising Yachts Annapolis facility to begin the outfitting process. The team at Atlantic Cruising Yachts was incredibly helpful and insightful about setting the boat up perfectly to be ready for the charter fleet. 

From our first sailing trip aboard Being Nauti, we were completely hooked on the Virgin Islands. The combination of crystal clear Caribbean water, beautiful islands and friendly people convinced us that we would make this our home as soon as possible. The opportunity to make the leap to the islands finally came in 2015 when we purchased VIBE Charters, a successful day charter business based in St Thomas. Our passion for being on the water combined with our commitment to giving our customers the highest level of service available on St Thomas has fueled our continued growth and success.

As our day charter business continued to grow and we began looking for other opportunities to expand, it became obvious that the answer was already in plain sight. We knew that St Thomas, and specifically the East End, was in need of a bareboat charter company bringing the same level of service that we provide our customers. 

Our ongoing relationship, begun in 2012, with Atlantic Cruising Yachts positions us perfectly with the best sales team in the world representing Fountaine Pajot and Jeanneau. Having experienced purchasing a yacht from them personally, we have first hand experience with the level of professionalism they bring to the yacht sales market and could not be more excited to be working with them.

We feel extremely blessed to be living our island dream and look forward to the opportunity to help many more people fuel their island dreams through Virgin Islands Yacht Charters.
