British Virgin Islands Season 2024: The Ritzy Charters Selection
by Federico Lopez on Jan 03, 2024
Having attended the most recent BVI Charter Yacht Show and being able to witness the yachts available in the area, our dedicated team of Brokers has curated a selection of the most immaculate and professional Crewed Yacht Charters to sail in the British Virgin Islands during the 2024 season.
The last BVI show was held November 7-10 at Nanny Cay Resort & Marina, Tortola. It was the largest edition the industry has seen in recent years, with a record yacht and brokers attendance: 50 crewed yachts and more than 120 charter brokers attended the Fall Show. After conducting a vote among our colleagues, Ritzy Charters has narrowed this list to our Top 5 Favorite Yachts.
The criteria for this selection was to find those yachts with the best balance between the vessel's quality and its crew's professionalism. To evaluate the infrastructure we consider variables such as the year of manufacture, the quality of its materials and finish, its general maintenance, and how comfortable the layout and its features are. As for the crew, we consider their level of experience, service vocation and effective communication, among other skills.
Below are our recommendations when choosing a Crewed Yacht Charter in the British Virgin Islands for the 2024 season.
