This was our first time chartering from BVI Yacht Charters but our fifth time chartering in the BVI, first time without the children, - we were sneaking a week away, just the two of us, to celebrate a special birthday. Speaking with BVI yacht charters, and with our usual, previous (global) charter company, we were just so much more impressed with BVI that we went straight ahead and booked little "Olive" for the two of us. She was perfect! We arrived at 5pm from St Thomas, to be greeted for our first night aboard and directed to our pristine boat, air conditioning running and beds already made (big plus over previous!). A rocky night and stormy weather did not dampen our enthusiasm and after a thorough but efficient check of boat and briefing meeting we were able to get away before the weather worsened. Staff were friendly, knowledgeable and really helpful, and seemed committed to the company and the ethos, not something we had encountered with our previous charters. Olive was well supplied, beautifully cleaned and with brand new sails. We made our way across to Pirate's, through decent winds but pretty big swell for such a little boat, but Olive handled it well and won our hearts. The rest of the trip was a breeze (!), staff were very responsive to our few calls and very helpful with return to base. Quality of boat and service, friendliness and professionalism of staff were fantastic throughout, and we will never go back to our old charter company. Can't wait to book Olive again.
