Buying a new or used Dinghy in Tortola

So just throwing it out there if anybody knows of how to go about purchasing a dinghy in the BVI's? Assuming all goes well with my survey, I'm taking possession of a boat next week, but its without a dinghy. An online search has been futile so far, so just seeing if there are any experts out there to point me in a direction before I get there later this week.

Thanks!

When I was in same situation I sailed to St Martin sans dinghy and picked one up at Budget Marine's store in ths Dutch side. They give a better "export" price if you request quote by email in advance stating boat is not based in SXM.

Re: Buying a new or used Dinghy in Tortola

^^^ good advice.

Budget Marine or Island Waterworld are great places to buy a new dinghy. Ten percent discount if you pay in cash.

If you want a used dinghy, check with the charter companies in the BVI. They may have some they are retiring to be replaced with new.
