Can someone point me in the direction as to where I would find BVI cruising fees and taxes for private boats and crew/passengers. The vessel is our personal boat and not a charter yacht.

Thank you kindly.

Private vessels don't pay cruising fees in the BVI

If you keep your boat in the BVI you need to do an annual temporary import for something like $250 (prices have gone up, it used to be half that).

1998 to 2009 it used to be $201.00 per year

sail445 is correct. I just went through my folder with all my port clearances and found a temporary import duty from 2015 for $201. What I can't find is the most recent one to see what the new price was. You used to be able to do the temporary import when clearing in, but that has changed and you now have to go into Road Town to take care of it.
