The BVI Crewed Charter Experience

A fully crewed yacht charter in the BVI is a truly unique and extraordinary vacation experience. For many of our clients, they tell us it’s as a trip of a lifetime!

What makes our BVI crewed yacht charter experience so extraordinary?

  • The Crew: Imagine a Captain and crew whose sole desire is to cater to your every whim and specifically tailor your charter around you and your group. Rely on Carefree to recommend the best yachts & crews based on your budget, style and interests.
  • Multiple Island Visits: Enjoy the ability to visit a new island each day, each with its own unique character and charm. Your crew will keep you abreast of what each island offers and you can then pick and choose among the various activity options each day. Ask us about the most popular spots or the off the beaten path places.
  • Flexible itineraries: In contrast to a cruise ship, your charter itinerary and crewed charter experience is extremely flexible and all based upon what you want to do and see. The Captain can easily adjust his itinerary choices throughout the charter based on what you and your group are enjoying the most as well of course, the weather at hand. Our typical charters are 7 nights in length and provide the most flexibility. Please note that we have a 6 night minimum.
  • Varied Activity Options: Whether you want to sit back, relax and simply unplug on charter or engage in loads of water sports each day, we have you covered. We have experienced crews featuring high end service, fun-loving crews that are great with kids or active groups, plus know which crews that can cover the full spectrum or anything in between.
  • Easy Trips between islands: On average, you can expect to spend about 1 ½ to 2 hours of easy movement between the various islands each day, whether motoring or sailing. The balance of your days will be spent in one of the beautiful BVI anchorages giving you plenty of time to relax, engage and explore.

A family that we booked aboard 62' Catamaran Bagheera in February, 2018 said:

Lynne: We had a fabulous vacation aboard Bagheera. Our entire family of 8 agreed it was our best vacation ever! We loved the casualness of just getting up in the morning, putting on our swimsuits, or bathrobes, having breakfast and starting the day. Our vacation aboard the Bagheera not only met our expectations, it far exceeded them. Thanks Lynne, for your help in coordinating this trip! We couldn’t be happier!
