Not sure where to start with this but I figured that this would be as good a place as any. We recently purchased a vacation property in Sayulita, Mexico and have been toying with the idea of potentially exchanging it for a yacht charter in the BVI's. We have sailed the BVI's close to a dozen times now and look forward to returning, so we thought that it might be a good idea to leverage our home in MX. I am aware of home exchanges online but I have not run into any boat exchanges. Anyone have any thoughts on the subject?

And if anyone has a boat and would consider it, here is our place in Sayulita: Casa Jungla

Pretty much most of us on this board that had yachts there have lost them to Irma. Otherwise I would be interested.
But we are shopping for a new one.

Yea, I figured as much. As everyone replaces them, I am sure that there might be interested. Hit me up if and when does does happen. I'll continue to check in here.

A "yacht exchange" is a great idea. I would love to trade some time on my boat in the Caribbean for some time on a sweet yacht in the Med or in a pretty little home in Mexico.

Nice to see a post that doesn't relate directly to Irma.

Checking in here to see how everyone is doing. Looks like folks are getting boats back in the water. If anyone is looking for an exchange in the future, drop me a line. I am always interested!!

So its been a year and it looks like a lot of boats are back in the water. Anyone know whether or not there is a formal exchange website established? And if not, anyone interested in putting together a little trade? I have the Ilons on my brain....

I've seen this site though not much in the BVI ...... https://www.sailum.com/


I always take life with a grain of salt. Plus a slice of lemon, and a shot of tequila

Good to know. I have seen a few websites that offer boat exchanges but not boat for home exchanges.

Soooo, anyone looking to exchange for a house in Sayulita, MX? We are ready to head back to the BVI's.

Rock Toy--You'd better read up a little here before you say that you're ready to go back to the BVI as apparently, the BVI isn't ready for you, or any tourists!!

Thanks for the kind post, Carol. I am planning ahead. Obviously, its end of days right now (we are on fire out here on the West Coast) but I'm looking forward to better days. Nothing wrong with setting up something to look forward to, right?
