What could be better than a charter vacation in the British Virgin Islands, with some of the most beautiful, and boater-friendly, cruising grounds in the world? Well, how about a crewed charter vacation in the BVI, where someone else does the driving, the planning, the cooking and the cleaning up?
Sounds good? Take a look at the MarineMax Vacations crewed charters now located at Scrub Island Resort, Spa and Marina, next to Tortola. They’ll move to their new permanent location at Nanny Cay in the fall, once construction is finished there. The rebuilt Nanny Cay, on the south side of Tortola between Road Town and West End, will have a 40-room hotel, three restaurants, a swimming pool and chandlery, as well as the MarineMax facility.
A popular charter boat there is the MarineMax 484 (pictured above), a luxurious power cat, with four large staterooms, providing privacy for everyone on board; each stateroom has an en suite head, with a stall shower, all working off the boat’s own fresh water system. Each stateroom also has panoramic windows.
The main deck takes advantage of the cat’s full 23’6” beam, so there’s plenty of room to relax and enjoy the views through panoramic windows. There’s seating in the salon for leisurely dining, but there’s even more seating up on the large flybridge, with a large entertainment and dining area including a barbecue, wet bar and sunpad.
The swim platform lowers hydraulically for easy access to the dinghy, swimming and water toys. Power comes from twin 330-hp Volvo diesels. And if you choose the crewed vacation, someone else does all the work. For more:
