There is a marina with boats in the background, and mountains on either side of the back of the photo. The ocean water is deep blue. The sky is blue and full of puffy white clouds.

HURRICANE IRMA HITS THE CARIBBEAN

Hurricane Irma struck the British Virgin Islands in early September, 2017. She left destruction. For instance, a trail of battered yachts, debris-filled beaches, and widespread destruction.

 

STATE OF THE CARIBBEAN

Fast forward 2-plus years.  The island chain is once again as popular as ever as a world-class yacht charter destination!  The islands are back to normal. For example, the debris is gone, the marinas are rebuilt, and the white-sand beaches are once again glistening in the rays of the warm Caribbean sun.

 

WHY CHOOSE THE BVI FOR YACHT CHARTER?

Great news!  There is a new reason to choose the BVI this spring for your Caribbean superyacht experience.  DUTY FREE FUEL.

 

GOVERNMENT AMENDMENT

The British Virgin Islands (BVIs) government amended its custom regulations in December 2019.  They now offer duty free fuel to yachts.

Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters, explains:

“As long as your luxury charter yacht remains in the BVI for a minimum three days, your crew can take advantage of these cost savings.  Depending upon the size of the superyacht you charter, the savings can be significant.”

 

PREMIER OF THE BVI COMMENTS

Andrew Fahie, the Premier of the BVI also commented on the new rule:  “This will be a step in the right direction towards encouraging megayachts to make the BVI their home port,” says Andrew Fahie, the premier of the BVIs.

Fun Fact for British Virgin Island Yacht Charter – A Snorkeling Paradise

 

Other areas of the Caribbean, for instance, St Martin and St Barts, draw more megayacht visits.  The BVIs seem prepared to give the other islands a run for their money.

Multiple marinas for deep-draft superyachts, especially sailing yachts, now exist.

The BVI has year-round warm temperatures and as a general rule.  Not only that, but calmer waters occur here than in other areas of the Caribbean.

Flight times from the USA to the British Virgin Islands are shorter.  Not only is there an international airport in Tortola suitable for both commercial and private jets. but there is also regular ferry service between the BVI and the nearby U.S. Virgin Islands.

If easy flight access, beautiful anchorages, and money-saving opportunities matter to you, consider the British Virgins for your next superyacht charter vacation this spring.

 

HOW TO BOOK A YACHT CHARTER

In conclusion, it is time to plan your yacht charter for the Spring.  Why not enjoy The Superyacht Experience in a destination with duty free fuel?  The savings that you enjoy on the fuel can be used to purchase a duty free piece of jewelry for your loved one, maybe?  (wink)  Book your yacht charter now by contacting 1-800 Yacht Charters at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/  #thesuperyachtexperience #yachtcharter #1800yachtcharters
