You haven’t lived until you’ve allowed yourself to be pampered aboard a private crewed yacht in the Caribbean by those on the BVI Yacht Charters team.
Chartering a crewed yacht in the Virgin Islands is simple and affordable when you work with us. Why board a cruise ship with thousands of others when you can charter your own private crewed yacht in the Caribbean? Don’t settle for a crowded cruise ship when you can relax on your own private yacht and travel at your own pace, pampered all the way.
A crewed yacht charter is a perfect blend of all the finest ingredients of first class stateroom accommodation on a luxury liner and the exciting freedom of cruising on your own private yacht. There are no deadlines or sailing schedules on a crewed yacht, the only one is happy hour!
Waiting in line is not our idea of a vacation. At BVI Yacht Charters we have time for all of your questions and will help with planning your itinerary and finding the perfect yacht and crew for your sailing vacation.
It’s no wonder that many of our customers return as friends! You will discover breathtaking islands and pristine beaches and perhaps find yourself swaying to the rhythm of steel drums at an open-air beach bar! Be pampered in paradise and enjoy the many water sports, gourmet dining, wines and open bar tailored to your preferences on our crewed yachts.
