The Nicola was the perfect boat for our family of 4 and it handled beautifully in the windy weather. It was our first trip to the bvi and it was so easy to navigate and find places to explore. It felt like each spot we moored was nicer than the last. We slept aboard the night before which was a great way to get comfortable with the boat, although I wish we'd known there were no restaurants etc. for our family to access on foot. We will be back!
