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
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.
