IYC Yacht Charters in St. Thomas, USVI

Does anyone have an experience with this company? We're thinking of chartering with them and I'd like to know how they do. They don't show up on a Google ratings search.

Thanks,
Duane

Re: IYC Yacht Charters in St. Thomas, USVI

We chartered a 37' Island Packet from Island Yachts in October of 2012. It was our first bareboat charter experience (we've since chartered with two other companies in Tortola), and we were very appreciative of the detail provided during our boat briefing. Skip (the owner/operator) is very knowledgable about the IPs. And he takes excellent care of his boats - ours was in perfect condition. The entire team at Island Yachts was great to work with.

So far, the Island Packet was hands down our favorite charter boat. Plus, flying into St. Thomas (and not dealing with the ferries to/from the BVIs) was an added bonus.

We chartered from them back in 2004. Skip and Andrea were great. Highly recommend them.

I rarely hear of any dissatisfaction with Island Yachts. The most common complaint is the lack of boat options. You can charter any kind of boat from them you want as long as it's an IP monohull.
