Every catamaran charter vacation we assist our clients in creating is unique to them and this vacation was going to be the best vacation little Samantha could ever image.

Samantha on Catamaran

To surprise her even more, and to add further excitement to their sailing vacation adventure we had helped them plan the real treasure hunt for her when she arrived in the Caribbean.

Her parents had purchased real gold and silver coins plus 'pirated' jewelry in advance of their trip and we had it shipped directly to the captain of their chartered catamaran. The captain was told where to hide the treasure chest in an out of the way caves so that no one else would find it before she did.

Immediately after boarding their catamaran, the luxurious "Alive", the captain set sail.

Voyage Catamaran Charters in the Virgin Islands

Voyage Catamarans and BVI Sailing Vacations

Luxury Voyage Catamaran
Quality Made Catamarans From Cape Town, South Africa are Built for Fun-Filled Caribbean Vacations. Known world wide for their craftsmanship, durability and safety they are a favorite of charter companies and boat owners alike. Here is a wonderful example that completely supports the statements above. We all know words are cheap, but here is my personal example of magnificent durability, craftsmanship, safety and all around quality.

In 1996 Voyage Catamarans started with one catamaran named Scubadu. Dave and Stella Beavis ran this one sailboat doing twenty Caribbean charters each year until roughly 2003. I was on board for the first time while visiting West End Tortola when I said to David, "Hey Dave don't tell me this catamaran has not been back to the factory to have new internal paint, new leather upholstery and new floor to bring her up to the condition I see her in today". David’s reply to me, “No Andy everything remains original as I simply whip her down with soap and water everyday". Oh boy, the catamaran looked brand new 5 years after doing some 100 charters and making the owner pretty happy at the same time. I doubt, any other manufacturer can claim such quality and durability. You can never go wrong by choosing to take a sailing vacation on luxury Voyage catamarans whether you are in the British Virgin Islands, Bahamas or the Greek Islands. With 8 models and lengths ranging from 45' to 60' these luxury vacation sailboats can accommodate 4 to 10 guests in comfort and style.

BVI Tandem Yacht Charters for Large Groups

Luxury Tandem Yacht Charter Vacations.

Guests always have far more fun with two boats, two captains and crew than just one charter yacht. Here are a few ideas to consider.

Have you ever considered taking an all-inclusive catamaran sailing vacation?

Take a look at a different idea to rent private yachts, at a significantly lower rate that only a private tandem yacht charter can provide.

Tandem yacht charter Vacations Clients of ours who originally requested a big power boat ended up chartering two power catamarans.

The twin sisters the 60' Sea Boss and La Manguita were selected for their tandem yacht charter for 12 guests. Six people on each catamaran in 3 private en-suite staterooms.

Unlike the power yachts, catamaran sailboats charters do not charge the additional APA and are all-inclusive of all food, wine, beer, equipment, taxes, mooring fees, etc.

The twin power catamarans rental ended up costing $29,500 for each group of 6 people meaning that so renting both power catamarans cost $59,000 or just $4,900 per person. That works about to being a third of the price of the 140 foot power yacht with her 6 cabins that the client was first interested in chartering for their holiday.

Fishing While on A BVI Catamaran Vacation

My father taught me how to fish but I must have missed the lessons on how to actually catch them! Fishing is a super fun when you have a captain who knows how to catch and is willing to share his knowledge with you. Even better is being taken to a 'honey hole' that the captains know produce big fish. You can imagine that they are very secretive about those locations and the skills required to know how to catch the big ones. If you are looking forward to fishing as a part of your Caribbean catamaran charter then make sure to ask me about which boats have the best fishing captains.

I swam ahead and down to the seabed below and looked into a large cave to see a nurse shark lazily relaxing for the afternoon. Coming back up to the surface to tell my guests that there was a nurse shark directly below us and would they like to see it? Everyone immediately said yes.
