Equip an ex-charter sailboat

I'm planning to buy an ex charter boat in BVI to sail 2-3 years in the Carib. You know all this sailboats are very frugal in term of equipment

Where is the best place to buy some additional stuff??


-Dinghy and outboard
-Solar Panels
-extra batteries

Is there any place near BVI with good supply and low prices? or should I sail to Florida to get better?

Budget Marine in St Martin...cheapest in the Caribbean.
