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 on a private luxury yacht. British Virgin Islands sailing vacations are one of the top choices among sailors for a terrific and memorable Caribbean adventure.

Please ensure your passport is valid for the period of travel and for six months after you return. Your passport name must match the name on the flight ticket otherwise you may not be able to travel and insurance may be invalid. It is the responsibility of each individual to ensure relevant visas are obtained where necessary. The Sailing Collective cannot be held responsible for refusal of entry or travel due to lack of visas. If you are in any doubt please contact your Embassy for full details.
US Dollars and US travelers checks are used throughout the BVI. ATMs are limited on the island. We recommend arriving with cash in hand in Tortola. The only ATM in Tortola is in Road Town. Visa and MasterCard are also accepted in most places.
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 Dufour 500 Grand large is modern, with straightforward lines and the strong and appealing design characteristic for Dufour Yachts. It offers a unique cruising concept for comfortable and secure live-aboard, blue-water cruising, yet still offers a dynamic sailing performance combined with the Dufour’s renowned style and elegance.
Innovative, spacious, bright, and sophisticated only begins to describe the exciting Beneteau 50.5. Designed by Berret-Racoupeau and built by Beneateau, she features a sleek coachroof, long side windows, a fully-integrated mainsail arch and all the ergonomic ease of detailed design to make the most of each area. Fitted with 4 main cabins and 4 electric heads, large salon and linear portside galley the 50.5 offers an abundance of interior space and comfort. Located forward is an additional cabin, accessed via a hatch, with berth and head. Plenty of opening ports and hatches provide excellent ventilation throughout the yacht. On deck, her spacious cockpit, foredeck and dual helm makes this yacht comfortable outside as well.
Everything about the boat seems spacious, but the flow from the wide aft cockpit to the roomy main saloon, and from there down into the accommodations and staterooms, is natural and intuitive. In other words, it may be a very large vessel, but it still feels accessible and inviting. This is a fast sailing boat that you will remain comfortable in the whole time!
