Enjoy FREE Vacations on Your Yacht

Enjoy UNLIMITED use of your yacht in one of the most beautiful places in the world, the British Virgin Islands.  Virgin Motor Yachts provides extensive flexibility in scheduling as many weeks as you would like to personally enjoy on YOUR yacht!

Fractional Ownership

Virgin Motor Yachts Fractional Ownership provides yacht ownership by dividing an expensive asset into percentage shares and selling those shares to individual owners. A fractional ownership share provides the same owner privileges as private ownership, but expenses are divided between all owners.  Fractional owners could purchase the entire yacht individually, but recognize the financial benefit of purchasing a fractional share, which allows them the opportunity to enjoy spending time on their yacht without being solely responsible for all expenses or the burden of coordinating the maintenance, dockage, upkeep etc.

Fractional Ownership is a way for you to get the most out of your investment by purchasing only the ‘shares’ you will use, thereby reducing the cost of purchase and ownership.  If you know you will travel to the British Virgin Islands for only a week or two a year, a fractional ownership share might provide you the best opportunity to enjoy motor yacht ownership in a hassle-free and financially strategic way.

The Fractional Ownership program at Virgin Motor Yachts is not a Timeshare program where a corporation owns many yachts at multiple locations, and each shareholder has the rights to use any of them. Nor is it a boat club, where boaters pay a fee for unlimited access to a fleet of boats at one location.  In our Fractional Ownership program you own your percentage of the yacht (in minimum 10% share increments), and hold the associated title and equity to the yacht.

If you are you considering buying a motor yacht, or upgrading to a larger one, before you pull out your checkbook, consider whether you want to share the purchase and operating costs with others through Fractional Ownership. Regardless of which option you choose, Virgin Motor Yachts will help you will all aspects of the purchase, management and chartering from start to finish.

Experienced Firm

Virgin Motor Yachts has been successfully operating on Tortola, British Virgin Islands for nearly 20 years.  We are the ONLY, exclusively motor-yacht charter company in BVI.  Virgin Motor Yachts is also the exclusive Caribbean dealer for Hudson Power Catamarans, Horizon Yachts,  and Fountaine Pajot.

Dealerships & Partnerships

Virgin Motor Yachts is proud to be the EXCLUSIVE Caribbean dealer for world-leading brands including Hudson Power Catamarans, Horizon Yachts and Fountaine Pajot Power Catamarans.  All three companies share a dedication to building high quality yachts and powercats that can be modified and customized to suit the needs of both owners and charter guests.

Hudson Power Catamarans

Hudson Powercat is part of Hudson Yacht Group. They blend smart design with stylish aesthetics and Hudson’s trademark focus on luxury and comfort. Their Powercat series has come to represent the pinnacle in luxury Motor Yacht design.

Hudson Yacht and Marine, the parent company of Hudson Powercat, began back in 2012 as a partnership between Hudson Wang and Paul Hakes. Together they assembled a team that would include some of the boating industry’s finest marine architects, designers and engineers and set about building luxury yachts that would outperform all other boats in their class.

The yard has a history of success in building high-end performance cruising catamarans in both sail and power. Whether using aerospace materials or conventional GRP, the yard is fully self-sufficient with multiple large CNC capabilities and the ability to build strong composites to beautifully finished interiors.

Fountaine Pajot Power Catamarans

From the outset, they have been innovation-driven, updating their ranges regularly to retain their market leader position while servicing the demands of their discerning clientele who share their passion for sailing.  Fountaine Pajot’s Flagship class was developed in 2008 for their largest yachts. These exceptional models are available in Fountaine Pajot’s sail catamaran and power and sail catamaran ranges.

Because Fountaine Pajot cares about the impact of their catamarans on the environment each model is available in an “ECO CONCEPT” version, i.e. positive energy boats incorporating renewable energy sources, strongly reducing the ecological footprint of their power catamarans.

Since 1976, Fountaine Pajot has streamlined its production process. Today, it is one of the top boat builders in France delivering dual sail and power catamaran ranges which are internationally renowned vessels in their market sector. The company has rightly won accolades for its flair and know-how.

Horizon Yachts

Virgin Motor Yachts is proud to be a ‘Preferred Partner’ dealer for Horizon Yachts in the Caribbean.  Horizon Yachts, the parent company of Horizon Group, was founded in 1987 by CEO John Lu, who has a deep-rooted passion for boats and a love of the ocean that stems from childhood. After graduating from the National Taiwan Ocean University with a degree in naval architecture, Lu returned to his hometown of Kaohsiung to gain experience in the yacht industry. His success as a naval architect led to the decision to establish Horizon Yacht, with its goal to build clients their ultimate dream yacht – a goal that remains unchanged to this day.

Since its inception in 1987, Horizon has emerged as the leading Asian yacht brand in the luxury megayacht market and is known throughout the industry for its sophisticated craftsmanship, superior build techniques, and innovative technology. Horizon also contributes to one-third of the Taiwan yacht industry total export quantity and has elevated Taiwan as one of the world’s top five luxury megayacht building nations.
