What You Can Expect:

Bareboaters can’t wait to lift anchor and sail the magnificent waters surrounding the British Virgin Islands. 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.

We can also schedule to have a dive training boat meet you and take you to a scubadiving location. The boat will be fully equipped and escort you back to your yacht afterwards.

Island Hopping

We can take care of booking a taxi driver for you. Simply drop anchor, disembark, and our licensed taxi driver, Orlando, will be waiting for you to chauffeur you across the islands. Bring your camera… You’re in for some spectacular sights.

Water Games and Sports

Paddle boarding, kayaking, windsurfing, noodles, inflatable floating mats. We can handle booking all of your favorite water fun items, so they’re already packed on your yacht when you arrive.

We also offer Specialty Sailing Packages

• Sailing certification training
• Flotillas
• Sail & Villa 

What to Expect Onboard:

Designed by Groupe Finot, one of the most respected names in globe-trotting sailboats, the Beneteau 523 is the latest addition to the Beneteau Flagship line. Reliability, performance and comfort were the main criteria in making this cruiser. This boat is available with or without crew.

The galley is amply sized, functional and secure and the saloon is very spacious. The forward facing navigation station is flanked by the electrics panel, but also has plenty of space for instruments. The five double cabins (the fifth accessed from the deck) all have queen sized double beds with ensuite heads and showers. All sail handling is done from the cockpit and the twin steering positions allow for excellent visibility when maneuvering. The 523 is perfect for enjoying quality time on the water with family and friends.
