With the captain and the crew taking care of absolutely everything on board, your charter is an unprecedented way to discover the wonders the Caribbean region has to offer. The Caribbean Sea with its clear azure waters, historic heritage, quaint villages and exotic scenery is a magnificent yachting area which makes the region one of the world’s leading charter destinations.

Let our experienced staff help you find a perfect yacht for your luxury vacation! Based on the number of guests on board, your preferences and planned budget, we will find the best options for you to choose from, anywhere in the Caribbean, and assist you with every step of the booking and BVI yacht charter procedure.

Luxury yachts are typically longer than 20m (65 ft), specially designed for comfortable cruising and are luxuriously furnished and fully equipped. BVI yacht charters always come with a professional staff on board, which makes roaming the seas relaxing and completely effortless. This dedicated crew of captain, chef and mates, awaits your command to serve your every whim and ensure your complete and total enjoyment while cruising with them.

Bright and spacious, every one of the yachts will have all the modern amenities and key features to please the most demanding charterers, with the differences being the size of the yacht, the layout and the charter rate.

The rate of the yacht charter BVI is always inclusive of the crew that is employed by that yacht. Once you select and book the yacht, both the captain and chef will be in contact with you directly. Your private chef will send you a ‘preference’ sheet that allows you to detail anything you like or dislike to eat, types of cuisine you prefer, the type and brands of soft drinks and alcohol you would like on board etc. It is extremely comprehensive and allows the chef to create a menu that is tailor made to your taste. The chef plans for you to eat three meals a day on board the yacht. If you want to go ashore any night for dinner you can certainly do so, and they will just not plan to make your dinner that evening.

The captain will also be in touch to find out what your vacation ‘style’ is and to find out what you would like to do on your BVI  yacht charter. Are you very adventurous and want to go hiking, paddle boarding, fishing, diving etc? Do you want to go to all the ‘happening’ beach bars? Do you prefer beaches that are ‘off the beaten path’ in total seclusion? Based on your conversation, the captain will help develop an itinerary that is completely personalized around your interests and help you arrange any additional activities you might want.

Luxury yachts come fully equipped with an array of water toys to enjoy all the seas have to offer, including; snorkelling equipment, floating mats, paddle boards and kayaks wakeboards, jet skis, and sometimes even water trampolines and/or giant water slides.

We at Virgin Motor Yachts are happy to offer you the finest selection of luxury yachts to cruise the beautiful Caribbean. So sit back, relax, and let us create the perfect fun-filled yachting holiday, tailor made for you.

When chartering a bareboat motor yacht you can choose from two types; monohull motor yachts or power catamarans. Both provide a great way to cruise the BVI in speed, style and comfort.

You can view the multiple yachts and power catamarans we offer for bareboat charter and our reservations specialist can then help you pick the best yacht for your group.

Once you have selected your perfect yacht, we will send you a contract and a ‘sailing resume’ for you to complete, that details your previous experience as a captain. This allows us to ensure that the yacht you have selected is the ‘best fit’ for you and your expertise.

Bareboat Yacht Charters Procedure

Once you arrive in the beautiful BVI we will help coordinate your arrival at our base in Nanny Cay Marina. You can go to town to purchase provisions for your yacht, or you can order them in advance on line and they will already be on board when you arrive. Our customer service specialist will help you complete your charter paperwork and then you are nearly ready to go. Our operations manager will walk you through all the systems onboard and provide you a full ‘check out’ to ensure you are completely comfortable with the yacht before you set out on your charter. Following this briefing, you are all set to head out on the water! Your yacht will have an ipad mini loaded with Navionics to make navigating stress and hassle-free even for guests who are chartering in the waters of the BVI for the first time.

While cruising around the BVI, there is no ‘set’ itinerary of any kind – where and when you go is completely up to you. You can choose to cruise to as many of the popular islands; Norman, Peter, Cooper, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke as time will allow, or you can spend most of your time in only one or two places – since you are the captain on your bareboat charter you can do whatever you prefer. We do recommend that first time guests be sure to check out a few of the islands top spots including; The Baths, The Indians, The Willy-T, Cooper Island Beach Club, Wreck of the Rhone, Bitter End Yacht Club & Soggy Dollar Bar – just to name a few!
