What we're about

We arrange one week bareboat charters out of Tortola, British Virgin Islands, the Mediterranean and elsewhere.

The boats are typically late model monohulls (sloops) 45’ to 55' in size with a capacity of 8 to 10, depending on the number of crewmembers, availability at time of booking and other factors. A charter may cost $125 +/- per day (cheaper than a hotel), plus travel, provisioning and incidentals.

This is not a commercial venture. Rather, it is based on collecting a group of friends, sharing costs equally and having fun. If you are interested in joining us, please respond with your email address and we will send an outline with full particulars.

Check the calendar for upcoming trips or, if you would be interested in such an excursion with your family or friends on other dates, just let me know.

Regards,
