Life is Better in Flip Flops!

View from Home.jpg

Once again, we want to thank all of you who have reached out to us to inquire about our safety and that of our wonderful associates.  We are happy to report that all are safe and accounted for.

In addition, we were able to perform a cursory inspection this morning and our fleet appears to have suffered no further damage as a result of Maria.  We will be making a much more in depth, boat by boat inspection but at this time, we are delighted to be able to share with you that, as during Hurricane Irma, Compass Point Marina has fulfilled it's role as a safe hurricane hole.

One of our primary cruising grounds, the British Virgin Islands, were spared significant damage due to Maria so they are now able to continue the task of cleaning up and rebuilding without having to start all over.  We are receiving more feedback everyday from business owners that their plans to rebuild are already underway.

Please keep the residents of St Croix and Puerto Rico in your thoughts and prayers as they took the...

We don’t even know where to begin in thanking all of you who have reached out to us over the last several days, both before and after the storm. We have been humbled by the outpouring of love and support and greatly appreciate your ongoing prayers for our beloved islands. We are truly grateful that our entire crew is safe and we all came through with our homes intact. Many were not as fortunate and our hearts go out to those in need and are enduring devastating losses.

Compass Point Marina upheld its reputation as a hurricane hole and our fleet is largely intact, except for our personal boat, Being Nauti and one other boat with significant but repairable damage. By and large, the docks appear to have sustained minimal damage, even through a record breaking Category 5 hurricane. Our office, on the other hand, didn’t make it and all of the contents were lost. We have already secured temporary office space within Compass Point and Virgin Islands Yacht Charters is open for busines...

A New Base in St. Thomas Joins the ACY Network

For several years now, ACY has been searching for the right situation in St. Thomas. We had a fantastically successful relationship with BVI Yacht charters who  have run one of the most successful privately managed fleets in the Caribbean. It was logical to arrange a partnership, and our customers, Kristi Chapman and Jim Query were in a perfect place in their lives to take on this challenge.

St Thomas, of course. offers:

  • Easy, often direct flights to St. Thomas with no time consuming transfers to other air flights or ferry boats. Easy travel connections.

  • A great infrastructure with easy parts and service access.

  • Compass Point Marina is on the East End, just minutes from crossing into BVI, but also offering opportunities to explore St. John, or the Spanish Virgin Islands. Compass Point is a hurricane hole, so we can extend the season. This is a smaller boutique area with nearby restaurants and shopping, but without the hussle-bus...
