Bareboat-Tortola Owner's Time

We are interested in chartering a 44+ cat from Tortola, 10/15-10/23.

Does anyone have any options for us.

Thanks

I can't help with a boat, but we'll be down there that same timeframe - actually the 13th through the 24th.

Keep in mind the moorings Regatta overlaps that week. Here's a link to the schedule. From having been down last year a week after the Regatta, we enjoyed the fact that it was very quiet. I figure the same this year, except the locations that the regatta will be in, so we're staying away from those areas on those days.

Try: The Moorings, Sunsail and Footloose, all of which are owned by TUI Marine and also try BVI Yacht Charters. All their websites are easy to find.

It sounds like he's looking to book time through an owner, not looking for a charter company.

Stan, keep in mind at that time of year (their slow time) and the lateness of your booking, you might be able to get some good last minute deals. Conch Charters seems to have a great deal - buy 1 week get two weeks at the mid season weekly rate.

I think other charter companies should have some good rates at that time of year as well.

..and smart of him. In some of the programs at least, owner's can sell their time, but can not advertise it themselves.

It is smart. The savings are very good in most cases.

Here's a site that has owners time listed Discount yacht charters | Sailonline.com
