The saloons offer 360-degree views with big windows which also offers an abundance of natural light, a catamaran charter is great for the whole family.

Luxury Sailing. All catamarans offer luxury with comfortable beds and a spacious seating area, as well as outside areas to sunbathe or hangout. Some of the larger catamarans also offer small crew cabins, at the very front of the boat, for the skippers or hostesses to work onboard the yacht and accommodate requests, cook, and offer unique insights into the islands and the best places to stop and visit.

The BVI offers picturesque breathtaking views and a large number of events throughout the year, to watch or participate in, from regatta’s to carnivals there is always something to experience.

Why A Catamaran Charter? A catamaran can also sail quicker thanks to its design and aerodynamics through the water, which means you can get from A to B quicker allowing for more time to explore, swim or relax. On a British Virgin Islands catamaran charter, you can moor or drop anchor close to shore, thanks to the shallow draft of catamarans, which is ideal for swimming or dropping anchor to explore ashore or swim in bays or caves.
