Hey TTOL. I've run into a bit of an issue for some guests of ours. There are two different groups - one of 13 people and one of 15 people - who want to rent a high-end, luxury day charter boat to take them island hopping around the BVI. The 39' Midnight Express from Chillout Charters would be perfect, but it only can take 12. The other option I have found is the 58' from Dede, but it is currently undergoing an engine refit.

I'm thinking something like a large Sunseeker could be perfect. Or a large power cat. Anyone got any recs?

Might to be able to find one in PR - ask the question on the PR forum.

Unfortunately none of the PR boats can come into the BVI right now though

Did you try asking on Facebook BVI Abroad? A lot of the boat people seem to post there.

Let me ask my contacts at Nanny Cay tomorrow. I think that CUAN LAW might be back and up-and-running.

Cuan Law is definitely up and running. And singing loudly until 2:30 am. Not sure it fits the description of boat wanted, however.

I thought that it was supposed to be fully refurbished and it will certainly hold that many guests.

Contact Shana at https://blueskyluxurytravels.com/. She works in the BVI and deals with the type of arrangements you are seeking.

Yeah, unfortunately Cuanlaw is not what I'm looking for.

I'm looking for a 45' to 60' Luxury M/Y that is licensed to hold 15 passengers. Something like a: 49' Midnight Express, 58' Tiara or 50' to 60' Sunseeker. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like that boat/business exists in the BVI currently.... Perhaps an opportunity for the right entrepreneur

Happy to bring mine down if ONB wants to contract with me... :-)

I was only kidding. It would be the perfect boat for what you want; 55' Sea Ray Sundancer but it's not coming down anytime soon.

Have you tried reaching out to Guana to see if their boat is available? Not sure the latest boat is quite as big as you need but it's worth a shot.
