Did you know? The British Virgin Islands (BVI or BVI’s) are home to reefs. Specifically, the largest barrier reef in the Caribbean? Moreover, the fourth largest ocean reef on earth?
The BVI reef stretches 18 miles from the island of Anegada to Virgin Gorda. It is considered by experts to offer some of the best snorkeling spots in the world!
Add to the allure of snorkeling and diving during your Virgin Islands crewed catamaran yacht charter. It is widely rumored that there is still Spanish gold buried in the sand on the reef. In addition, the gold is yet to be found! Many Spanish galleons, laden with gold and riches from the new world, traveled here. Further, they sank to their watery graves at the hands of pirates and hurricanes in the 1700’s.

Was it really ten months ago that nearly two dozen of the largest luxury sailing charter vessels gathered in Porto Cervo, Sardinia for one of the most popular yachting events in the Mediterranean, the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta?
This past week, 28 superyacht vessels converged at the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda base in Virgin Gorda for the third “Caribbean” edition of the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta, sponsored by luxury Italian brand Loro Piana.
If there is one yacht builder that stands out among all others at these events, it has to be Perini Navi. Since the early eighties, Perini Navi has built luxury sailing charter vessels in a class of their own. To date, the company has built 52 yachts, measuring up to 88 meters in length.
Flagship of the fleet is the Perini Navi yacht MALTESE FALCON, delivered in 2006. A masterpiece of technology and design, the 88 meter yacht MALTESE FALCON is without equal. At the 2013 Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta, Perini Navi will be represented by 38m cruiser/racer sail yacht P2, as well as the sleek and stylish 54m yacht PARSIFAL III.
Other Perini Navi yacht charter vessels are often available in the Caribbean. For instance, 56 meter yacht SALUTE and the 50 meter yacht BARACUDA.
In conclusion, you deserve a wonderful Caribbean vacation! To charter a luxury sailing yacht in the Caribbean this spring, please contact 1-800 Yacht Charters at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/book-now-contact-us/
