BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS
The British Virgin Islands are comprised of more than 25 beautiful jewels set amid the sheltered, turquoise waters of the central Caribbean Sea. Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda, and Anegada are the major isles of the archipelago. The smaller islands, many splendid for day or overnight visits, add to the varied mix of tropical pleasures, which can be as laid-back or as active as desired during a British Virgin Islands yacht charter. White-sand beaches, luxury waterfront resorts, sailor-friendly bars and upscale restaurants, chic boutique shopping, snorkeling and scuba diving on coral reefs teeming with sea life, it is all the perfect blend to create a delightfully rejuvenating experience under sail. British Virgin Islands sailing vacations are one of the top choices among sailors for a terrific and memorable Caribbean adventure.

Each day, we spend between 2-5 hours of sailing, depending on the preference of the group. Each afternoon, we arrive at an island to explore local culture, bask in the island’s natural beauty and engage in sand and sea-related activities. The pace of the trip is as relaxed or as active as each traveler chooses. We can arrange airport transfers on request. Make sure your passport is in date and valid for the duration of your stay and look under our Handy Info section for visa advice!

Collapsible bags in place of large rigid suitcases are advised for ease of transport on and off the boat.Loading and unloading from the dingy can be a wet activity, a pair of shoes such as flip flops that you can get wet if we are landing on a beach.
During days on the water, you’ll want to be wearing light and comfortable clothing. As the vast majority of your time will be spent outside, prepare for elements - bring a light rain coat just in case, a hat to shield yourself from the sun, and a set of warm clothing. Throughout the week we may dine out at a nice restaurant, so bring gear that you’ll look nice in and suits your style.

The Lagoon 450 has everything you could want in a cruising boat: Incredible performance under sail, wide open deck space for lounging, and an incomparable comfort in the saloon and the cabins. The wide hulls of Lagoon 450 offer comfortable cabins with larger floor space than other catamarans of the size. An airy saloon contains an open concept modern galley (kitchen) and comfortable seating all with stunning panoramic visibility of the natural beauty that you came for. The aft deck is covered by a hard top bimini so that there is always plenty of breezy shaded space for lounging when you are taking a break from the sun drenched foredeck. Up front the netted "trampoline" between the hulls is the ultimate place to enjoy this boat under sail with the sun beaming down and the water rushing below you.
The BALI 4.0 enjoys an extraordinary amount of natural light. The large retractable windows bring an unequalled freshness into the saloon as well as a panoramic view. The many hatches in the hulls ensure exceptional natural ventilation. Its technical equipment will satisfy the most exacting sailors, and then for the most exacting cook, forward is the latest generation fitted galley allowing you to cook with a sea view.
The Bali 4.3 combines Catana's experience in performance with their understanding of the holidaymaker's accommodation needs. The designers have listened to their market and identified all the features that make for a great charter bareboat. The Bali catamaran contains living spaces rightly described as vast, and a rig configured with smooth sailing in mind.
4 Premier Double Cabins w/ bunk room + 2 crew bunks.
The Fountaine Pajot Saona 47 catamaran is a space machine in the truest sense of the word. Like all sailboats, it can carry you through the water and across space and time using nothing but the power of the wind—thereby making it supremely quiet and smooth. Unlike most other sailboats, though, it manages to do this while providing a vast amount of living space as well—not to mention the fact it does so in a package that remains supremely pleasing to the eye.
