To choose the best crewed charter sailboat or motor yacht, you need up-to-date, detailed information. We help you make this important decision with our own personal knowledge of the boats and crews. We live in the British Virgin Islands. Our advice is based on attending numerous boat shows, inspecting the yachts and meeting the crews in person. This enables us to give you the best advice suited for your BVI yacht charter.
BVI Charter – Deposit /Confirmed Booking
Once the decision is made and you have chosen your yacht, we place a hold on the vessel for your dates. This can be held for up to 7 days. Meanwhile we send you a contract to sign and return to us with the deposit. This can be between 25% and 50% depending on how far in advance your yacht charter starts. If you booking is less than 6 months ahead, then the deposit required will be 25%.
Please note the vacation booking is not confirmed until both the contract (link to contract) and deposit are received. Payment Method is by wire transfer (preferred and quick), details will be sent with your booking contract. Details of the Cancellation Policy can be viewed on the contract and should be carefully read before signing.
Once Your Charter Yacht is Booked and Confirmed
We then return a copy your signed contract with a preference sheet for you and all your guests to fill in. The preference and information sheets are very important as they provide valuable information for the boat crew, especially on the food and beverage side. Every luxury charter menu is unique and tailor-made for the guests from the preference sheets, so it is essential that the crew know exactly what you like and dislike.
Balance of Vacation Yacht Charter Fees
The balance of your charter fees are payable 45 days prior to the start of your charter. All payments will be clearly marked on your booking form with us. We will send out reminders nearer the time.
For your protection, all monies are held in an escrow account and released to the crew 10 days prior to the charter.
