I have Bare Boat chartered with numerous charter companies and Sail Caribe stands out as the best. They are extremely customer focused, personal, attentive and friendly. The staff were all helpful from the beginning of booking to the exit from the boat. Migdalia at the office answered every call and email immediately and provided all requested information. She was welcoming and informative. Joel and Scott in our initial briefing and throughout the charter as we had questions and had to come back to the dock due to a named storm were excellent. They understood we wanted to be off the slip and sailing and made sure our briefing was early and quick and our release from the slip after the storm passed happened ASAP. Sail Caribe also allowed us to return later on the last day which was very welcomed. Great people and great company. We will definitely be chartering with Sail Caribe again!

The yacht was the worst charter of my 40 years of sailing. During the first day, the dingy fell off the davit when a clevis on the lifting harness broke. The dingy lifting windlass only operated correctly on shore power. At sea, it often started by itself and also refused to operate when commanded. The throttle controls were severely corroded, resulting in a significant safety hazard when operating a loaded dingy. The generator failed when the key on the water pump impeller shaft was sheared off !! (No explanation from the technician in P.R. or the Captain. No foreign material found in strainer or pump. As a result, we were without 120vac, battery charging & Air Cond for >54 hours. The microwave tripped out BOITH 120vAC circuit breakers. The aftermarket water-maker failed without any instructions, manuals, spares or electrical wiring information. The washer consumed >20 gallons of water, never finishing the wash cycle. The coffee maker leaked coffee into the electrical distribution panel. The boat exhibited several 12vdc distribution issues relating to resettable protective devices, and an unidentified audible alarm operated at random times. The "Navigation" 12dc breaker does NOT power down ANY of the devices on the helm, Powering down the chart plotter on the screen, only temporarily shuts down the chart plotter. It powers up without any external input/commands a few min latter. The Sail Caribe support Captains did all within their capabilities and undefined (?) limitations to address the problems. However, even they had no general support data or materials at hand nor did they have data/materials specific to water maker or generator. Sail Carbe has no support base/facilities in Red Hook, or anywhere else in USVI. Their web site says they have a base on Tortola, but apparently that is also not true.

Response from Debsters72, Owner at Sailcaribe Yacht Charters
Responded Aug 1, 2021
Dear Mr. Chief_Dave168, We are truly sorry that the vessel presented some issues and left you with a bad feeling. We at SailCaribe work diligently on a preventative maintenance schedule to make sure all of the systems aboard our vessels are in top operating order. We never let a vessel leave without everything working 100% and all systems being checked out and verified by our guests before they leave the dock. We are also one of the few companies that have a 24-hour charter support and response system in place. This includes a high-speed chase boat to get our techs to the vessels to solve problems in the quickest and safest time frame. It is worth noting that we DID solve the problems aboard your vessel in this fashion. Also worth noting and clarifying Mr. Chief_Daves168's erroneous statements is that as many know, we do in fact have our Dock facility at AHY in Red Hook and did in fact dispatch support to his vessel. It's true we do not have a base in the BVI, however, we never stated such. We value our customers and their reviews/opinions, but it's important to be fair and not misleading. Chartering a vessel these days is for sure more technical than it was 40 years ago. One thing that has stayed the same is the beauty of our islands and the quality of true Caribbean sailing. We will always strive to improve where we can so that all of our guests can enjoy the beauty and tranquility of a SaiCaribe charter experience.

We had a great experience with SailCaribe. We just finished a week-long bareboat charter on Chimera. We originally had planned this trip for the summer of 2020 but needed to reschedule due to COVID. Migdalia made postponing the trip as stress-free as possible. The boat was beautiful and Jose was thorough in his walk-through. We especially appreciated the golf cart transport at the marina! It was great not having to lug all of our gear and provisions across the marina! We would definitely charter with SailCaribe again!

The crew at Sail Caribe was very helpful, and attentive. The morning briefing was very helpful in guiding our trip. Jose is a very good captain, and helped get us underway. Migdalia was very helpful and responsive while we were planning the trip. The Spanish Virgin Islands were a lot of fun, and there was very good snorkeling. The boat was very nice.

SAILCARIBE personnel, customer service, Captain for briefing are all friendly and very helpful. We bare boated to Cameron‘s and had a wonderful time. My only suggestion is to double check for your tools being aboard prior to departure to make sure you have everything needed before departure in case you need to change out an LP gas tank during your voyage. I also suggest placing a hose and brush aboard the Catamaran to assist in keeping the ship clean.
