Hi,
Starting to plan a bareboat for March 2019. Very excited to be going back to the BVI. It's been too many years since our last visit. We've chartered with The Moorings numerous times. We're considering Horizon this time as well. Wondering if anyone has ever encountered roaches on their bareboat with Horizon? We never once had a bug on a Moorings boat. Thanks

It’s possible to have roaches with any charter company. I have had roaches on boats from the Moorings, Voyage, Sun Yachts and CatCo. I have had friends who had roaches with basically every charter company. They get on the boats when people bring cardboard boxes onboard.

Hi,
I too had roaches on Voyage. I guess we've been blessed never having any with our Moorings charters.

Never had an issue with TMM. Highly recommend them.

Out two charters with Horizon gave me the impression of a very professional operation. The boats were emaculate.
One rule to remember is NEVER allow a corrogated cardboard box on the boat. Unpack them on the dock and carry the contents aboard after inspection. The glue used in cardboard boxes is a roach delicacy and the corrogations give ideal shelter to the young ones.

We just finished our 7th charter with Horizon 2 weeks ago. No roaches on any of our trips. We do not bring along cardboard. It gets removed as we unpack our provisions.

I don't know if we've just been lucky or not but we've chartered with Moorings, Horizon, Captain's Compass, Conch and Sail Caribe out of PR and have never had a roach. (Knocking on wood as we speak). We are also fanatic about packaging and cardboard and it's off the boat as soon as products are put away.

I'm sure we'll come across it at some point though, it's just a natural hazard for that area.
