Sailing within sight of land, a steady warm breeze and splendid berths. So many possibilities — sail long stretches of the immense and sheltered turquoise waters of the Sir Francis Drake Channel, enjoy being gently rocked by the Caribbean Sea, or set a course for adventure on the Atlantic Ocean and the superb island of Anegada. After sailing a few hours, you’ll have no problem finding a lovely bay to anchor in for lunch or for the night. And you’ll have so many activities to choose from. Unwind with a book on the deck, sheltered from the sun. Take a dip or swim to shore to enjoy the beautiful beach or a breathtaking hike. Snorkeling and Scuba Diving Our boats are fully equipped for snorkeling. You’ll be amazed by the sheer number and diversity of snorkeling locations. Explore caves and shipwrecks, swim among turtles and dolphins in their natural habitat. It’s like having front row seats to an enchanting ballet of marine life and twirling rainbow-coloured fish.

Be the envy of the Caribbean… Interior On Scents of Paradise, you will find surprising room proportions and a straight design oriented interior. Its three cabins and three heads allow for remarkable privacy. The main cabin is one of the most spacious and most luxurious ever conceived for a 54-footer. A fully furnished fourth cabin with a single bed and access to the deck can accommodate an extra guest. Ideal for two couples or a small family looking to sail in the lap of luxury. Available on an all-inclusive basis skippered and cheffed or skippered only. On Deck A new interpretation of a classic yacht design with an almost flush coach roof construction and harmonically integrated aft and midship cockpit area. A new concept that is safe, practical and elegant. The teak deck is a nod to tradition and esthetics. The vast cockpit, nestled astern and therefore away from the bridge, is an open invitation to unwind on comfortable couches. The wide neighboring bathing platform is a favorite with both kids and adults.

- Cruising Monohull
The private company was founded by the husband and wife team of Michèle Riva and Michel Guerra, two longtime sailing enthusiasts who started this venture by acquiring one yacht and crewing it as hostesschef and skipper. In just a few years, the operation grew to include more sailboats over and above the one they were crewing. With the fleet expanding and more and more holidays being booked, the business of running a fast-growing VSV meant less hostessing and skippering for the founders. We want our charter guests to enjoy the finest level of comfort and safety. That is why we assembled a professional crew of extremely able skippers, attendants and chefs so you can experience a cruise tailored to your wishes. Charter guests can request skippered vacations. If you never sailed before or if you plan to charter a bigger than usual sailing yacht, a skipper’s experience and his knowledge of the BVI waters can prove invaluable. He can also serve as the perfect guide to help you fully enjoy all the richness a BVI cruise has to offer.
