British Virgin Islands

BVI yacht charters

A yacht charter to the British Virgin Islands gives you the chance to explore 60 unspoilt volcanic islands. From the main island of Tortola to the smooth granite rocks of Virgin Gorda, or to tiny sandy islets that can be yours alone, with Burgess you’ll have the chance to explore at your leisure. The British Virgin Islands (BVI) celebrate the Caribbean's buccaneering, piratical past in names like Deadchest Island and Treasure Point. Expect picture postcard scenes around every headland. Enjoy fine dining at the Brandywine Estate. Feel the carnival vibe of full-moon parties fuelled by the famous Painkiller cocktail. Experience the best lobster in the West Indies on the laid-back island of Anegada, a mere 13 miles (and about 50 years) from Tortola. Revel in all of this and more on a British Virgin Islands’ yacht charter.

New to charter?

Whether you are looking for a 70m motor yacht to cruise the Caribbean or have your heart set on an adrenaline-fuelled sailing experience, we are on hand to guide you every step of the way.
Frequently asked questions
The charter agreement
After the availability of your chosen yacht has been verified, you will receive a standard MYBA Charter Agreement for signature. If your chosen cruising itenerary necessitates embarking or disembarking from a point other than your yacht’s home port, positioning charges (delivery/ redelivery fees) may be required. These charges, if applicable, will be confirmed in advance and affirmed in the Charter Agreement, together with any taxes that may apply.
Payment terms
A deposit of 50 per cent of the total charter fee is payable by bank transfer immediately on signature of the MYBA Charter Agreement. The remaining 50 per cent, plus an Advance Provisioning Allowance, together with any taxes, delivery/redelivery fees and any additionally agreed charges, is payable by bank transfer five weeks before the commencement of the charter.
Operating expenses

The Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA) is due at the time of the final charter payment. Under MYBA terms, this sum is usually equivalent to 30 per cent of the total charter fee, but may be up to 40 per cent in some cases.

Intended to cover the operating expenses of a charter as explained under Charter Terms, such as fuel, food, drinks, port fees and ad hoc incidentals, the APA will be given to the captain before the start of your charter. The Captain will ensure that the yacht is fully fuelled and provisioned when you step on board. While an up-to-date summary of accounts can be requested at any time during your charter, a full set of accounts will normally be submitted by your captain at the end of the cruise. If, during the charter, the expenditure exceeds the sum already paid, additional cash funds will be required at once.

All outstanding bills from the yacht charter should be settled in cash or by bank transfer before your final disembarkation. Of course, any remaining credit at the end of your charter will be reimbursed to you in full. On request, transfer arrangements to and from the yacht can be made by Burgess or by the yacht’s captain, payment for which will be deducted from your APA.

Every detail counts
Several weeks before you board your yacht, Burgess will ask you to complete a detailed questionnaire describing the preferences and special needs of all the members of your party, such as dietary or medial requirements, details of any allergies, and your sporting or entertainment requests. This will enable Burgess and the crew of your chosen charter yacht to ensure that everything possible is done to make your charter a fabulous experience.
