Bareboat Yacht Charter Review BVI | March 2023

VI Sailing Team

“Joanne is always responsive and easy to work with!”

Yacht & Crew

“TMM is the most impressive of all of the charter companies we have used. Professional, organized and well done. They were very knowledgeable and answered all questions. We had everything we needed. All systems worked perfectly.

Here is a quote from one of our crew.

Having served in the army for a quarter of a century, I’ve done some ‘once in a lifetime’ things. I’ve climbed and kayaked/canoed all over the world, I rode one of the Queens horses on two royal weddings and a diamond jubilee. I raised the Union Flag during the London Olympics.

I parachuted, rode a bike down a mountain during the winter in Scotland, I drank a Coke Zero in the Grand Canyon and went to a few places most people wouldn’t dare to.

Nothing, let me say that again. Nothing, compared to the sailing trip I just went on. Sun, sand, a beautiful coloured sea, perfect weather, delicious food, the best rum cocktails I’ve ever had, a great crew, and the most awesome friends I guy could ask for!

Best trip everrrrrr!”

Bareboat Charter Review British Virgin Islands | February 2023

VI Sailing Team

“Good communication and you delivered on everything we were hoping for, we had done this by ourselves in the past, and, it was a very good experience. Thank you.”

Yacht & Crew

“Horizon Yacht Charters did an excellent job – their online prep for the charter briefing, and the boat briefing was very well done.

Upon arrival everything was exactly as we expected, picked up at the dock in Road town, they had binders ready that describe the operation of the boat in thorough detail. People were very nice and attentive.

Nanny cay was an awesome place to depart from, first time we have left from there. And the staff at Horizons were lovely – Cara, who helped us with our check out and when we brought the boat back was very helpful.”
