BVI Yacht Charters Adds New Lagoon 450

One of the hottest charter yachts in the Caribbean, a new Lagoon 450 has joined the fleet at BVI Yacht Charters, which is based in Road Town on Tortola.  The yacht, named Catch the Cat, is a 2013 model with four cabins and four private heads, plus two single berths in the forepeaks.

The yacht is equipped for comfortable bareboat charters with generator, full air conditioning, quiet-flush electric heads, electric windlass with remote, electric sheet and halyard winch, and dinghy on davits. A hard top shades the cockpit with its dining area, while a Bimini top protects the raised helm.

Bookings are being taken at or (888) 615-4006. 


It’s Here!! The Fall Issue!!

I know, I know, it seemed like forever, but this one was worth waiting for.  The Fall Issue of CharterSavvy is bigger and, he said with no modesty whatsoever, better than ever!!

You’ll find a 9-page feature on bareboat chartering in Belize with gorgeous photography, a 10-pager on hunting the Loch Ness Monster through the Scottish Highlands via bareboat, a close-to-home charter along Florida’s Gulf Coast, and an insider’s guide to the best snorkeling sites in the BVIs.

Don’t miss our look at the latest inflatable life vests in our Cargo section, and our Sea Trial is the new Moorings 393 powercat.

Plus all the great columns and departments, too.

Just click on “Read The Magazine” on our website and enjoy! 



In a clever move, the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board has initiated the BVI VIP Club, which is like a “frequent flyer” program that gives travelers special privileges based on the number of your visits to the British Virgin Islands.

Membership is complimentary, but you have to provide proof of your visits by sending copies of the stamps in your passport.  The Basic level, for residents of the U.S. and Caribbean is three visits, while the rest of the world requires only two visits.  Silver level is reached with six (or four) visits, and Gold membership is with ten visits (seven for non-U.S/Caribbean residents).

Basic and Silver memberships give you a VIP newsletter, discounts, gifts and invitations to special events.  The Gold level is the one you want to earn, however, because it gives you VIP arrival status at the Terrence B. Lettsome International Airport (formerly Beef Island Airport), which should skate you through customs and immigration quickly.
