BVI's - One of The Best Cruising Grounds In The World

December 29, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 157

Imagine an idyllic, sun kissed cruising area, blessed with small uninhabited islands full of quiet anchorages, washed by the cooling Caribbean trade winds. Imagine no more! That area is the British Virgin Islands. The BVI's are one of the foremost cruising grounds in the world, offering short day sails between sheltered anchorages full of colorful marine life.

The British Virgin Islands (BVI) are a group of island situated between the end of the Caribbean Leeward islands and Puerto Rico. The four main islands of the BVI are Tortola, which hosts the capital Road Town, Anegada, Virgin Gorda, and Jost Van Dyke. The rest of the archipelago is made up of some 50 or so small islands and Cays. Arrivals are at the Terrance B Lettsome International Airport situated on Beef Island a short drive away from Road Town.

There are many ways of enjoying the BVI's but one of the best is to charter a yacht and explore the many bays and cays that dot these beautiful islands.

One of the longest established Yacht Charter companies in the islands is BVI Charter Yachts Ltd. This company was formed in 1974 and is without a doubt one of the most experienced yacht charterers in the business. They offer for hire a full range of yachts of all sizes, yachts such as large Luxury Power Boats, Catamarans, and Monohulls. There are two types of charter offered by the company these are Bareboat Charter, and Crewed Charter. BVI Yachts is based in the Inner Harbor, Road Town.

The difference between Bareboat charter and Crewed charter is simple. With a Bareboat charter you and your family crew the boat. There are no company employees on the boat. However should difficulties arise a company representative will arrive at your boat in very short order. The distances between the islands are not that great, in fact most of the islands are within a short distance of Road Town. With a Bareboat charter you have to cook all the meals on board and of course keep the boat clean and serviceable. Another alternative to Bareboat is to invite your family and friends for a vacation onboard a Crewed Charter yacht.

With a crewed charter, the crew is there to pamper to your desires. The crew know the area and wind patterns intimately and this knowlege can make the difference between a vacation that is fraught with problems, and one that will live in memory as the best you have ever experienced.

The very basic crewed charter regardless of the type of vessel that is being chartered is one that just has a skipper on board. Often a gourmet chef is hired along to create delicious cuisine complimented with fine wines and spirits. The crew also clean and maintain the boat. They know that the best sundowners can be found in Soopers Hole and where all the best fishing spots can be found. The skipper and crew employed by the company are totally professional in all things. Their brief is to make sure that your charter vacation is the best you have ever had. So the next time you consider a charter holiday contact BVI Charter Yachts via their website for information on your next yacht charter vacation.
