This was our second bareboat charter in the BVIs. Previously, we went with another company, and had a handful of issues, so we decided to try BVI Yacht Charter. We chartered Saint Blue (a new Lagoon 380) for 10 nights. The boat was in impeccable condition. I believe we were one of the first people to charter it, everything looked brand new. When we arrived, we found all of our provisions had been loaded into the fridge/storage, and after a detailed boat and chart briefing we were able to get underway a tad before noon. The dock workers were great help both for casting off and returning to dock 10 days later. We had no problems whatsoever with BVI Yacht Charters: they provided us with an excellent vessel and support on the dock. We didn't require any assistance during our charter, so I can't speak for that, but we highly recommend them for your bareboat adventure.

+Maggie and I were taking out our fourth bareboat charter in the Caribbean. Our previous charters were beautiful and exciting, but there was always one or several major glitches with the charter company we had previously used. Either the vessel was incompletely prepared, below promised condition, or the customer service was poorly delivered - inept and sometimes surly. So in spite of having a $500 "coupon" to revisit the old charter company, we decided to give BVI Yacht Charters a go. What a great relief to find that the glowing Tripadvisor reviews were on the mark. The 38' monohull, Arun, that we took out was impeccable and still had that "new boat smell." Everything worked. The batteries were strong, and I was able to run my CPAP machine from the installed inverter. The sails were crisp. The dinghy was new, and the domestic gear - pots, pans, linens, etc. were in good order. Important to us was the fact that the boat was presented as promised on time and ready to sail. BUT there's more. Our charter happened to occur as BVI Yacht Charters was moving into its sparkling new facility in the Ritter House. Fresh docks, showers and toilets, and a new office were a treat. But as we all know, with change comes challenges, and while phone lines and connectivity were finicky the first couple of days, the staff still delivered 100% professional service. Additionally, that staff was also being bombarded by questions and challenges pertaining to the chaos of the covid-19 pandemic. All the while, the staff was pleasantly professional in every way. I absolutely would recommend BVI Yacht Charters above the rest.

We are just back from a 7 day bareboat charter on Indian Chief, a 2019 Jeanneau 419. The boat was delivered absolutely clean, on-time, and with a great crew to do the checkout. The front office staff were professional and responsive from the first emails to book the boat through the final signoff. Anthony, the head mechanic and guru, was incredibly responsible for a minor issue (they actually ferried out to us a power cord replacement for the Wi-Fi). There were no mechanical issues during our sail (delightfully unusual for a sail, right?!). And of course the BVI are simply paradise on earth, great week of sailing, weather, swimming, snorkeling, and dining. I'm glad to see the BVI recovering from Irma, although the locals have many difficult memories to recount. No question that the next time we return to the BVI, we will use BVI Yacht Charters.

We sailed with Joe and Mandy Feb 23 to Mar 1 2020 on the KUMA TOO. It was a fabulous experience that far exceeded our expectations. Our trip began with contacting BVI Yacht Charters, to whom we were referred by our daughter who knew them from working on charter boats out of Key West. Els accommodated our plans well and we were drawn to the description of the KUMA TOO catamaran. Joe and Mandy run a tight ship, white glove clean and maintained, recently refitted including new beds. It is obvious they have pride of ownership and work very hard to make sure guests have the best experience possible. We loved the boat design and felt completely safe and at ease with Joe and Mandy at the helm. We couldn't have asked for more attentive hosts, always at our elbow asking if we need another beverage/snack or would we like to do/see something, all without being intrusive. We can't say enough about the food; they served gourmet meals from scratch all day long, while somehow finding time to tend to boat tasks and entertain us as well. We were always surprised when we turned in for the evening to find our bed turned down and mood lights flickering by the head of the bed. How did they find the time to do that? It worked well to let them take us to the best places along our path pending weather and seas; we are glad we didn't impose a predetermined itinerary on them and were rewarded for it. There was plenty of room for 3 couples to have private cabins/toilets/showers and not feel crowded. We loved the trampoline on the front of the boat and the sheltered seating in the cockpit area and inside by the kitchen. Joe was always welcoming anyone who was a bit queasy on the waves to join him in the double captain's chair to feel better. We highly recommend this crew and boat, and hope to be back for a repeat in the future. Bill & Sue Victor Flagstaff, AZ

Had a great charter with the team at BVI Yacht Charters. Very professional and organized, helped a newbie feel very comfortable. Everything ran on time and according to plan, no surprises. Of course it helps that we were sailing in some of the most beautiful water in the world!
