Charter companies for month-long BVI bareboat

My husband and I are planning a 4-week bareboat charter out of Tortolla for late 2021/early 2022. We're FINALLY getting to go for more than a week at a time and we're very excited!

Does anyone have suggestions for companies that offer longer-term rentals? Our goal is to find a reputable company that is a bit more economical at a 4-week commitment than companies like Sunsail or similar that focus on 1-2 week durations.

We're targeting a monohull, 32-36', out of Tortolla.

Thanks in advance!

You can check out Vacances Sous Voile, and or BVI yacht Charters.
The first is a french Canadian company small but very proud of the service level they give.
The last is the first ever company i did buisness with for a Charter and they are still the standard by wich I judge other charter companies

I believe VSV is out of business and I did not have a good experience with BVI Yacht charters. They did a bait and switch in our boat and made us wait for 3 hours in very rough conditions outside of their marina upon return.

We have always loved Horizon Yacht Charters and have done several multi-week trips. Even switching vessels in one.

Horizon has always gone out of their way to accommodate whatever our needs.

Horizons is very good. Used them for our last trip. Good marina and lots of choices for boats.

For a budget trip, you may find Conch Charters has what you need. We used them for our first trip several years ago. They were also good, but you have to realize their boats are cheaper because they’re a little older. They may not have all the fancy things new boats have and may need a little more maintence.

We’ve used Dream Yacht the most. Haven’t used them since they’ve moved to St. Thomas but we plan to use them out of there in 2021. Many boat options and I think they’re all only new to two or three years old.

Conch Charters would be my recommendation, friendly folks and easy to deal with, besides I prefer the boats a bit older. Nature and sailing are the same, so is the food and drinks .

TMM Yacht Charters, Road Reef Marina, Road Town

Far and away the best maintained charter fleet in the BVI. TMM will be happy to arrange an extended charter. Talk to Karen at the reservations number.
