British Virgin Islands Fleet

The British Virgin Islands fleet offers you sailing charters on immaculately maintained monohulls or catamarans. Our first class service on all of our sailing charters in the BVI is second to none. If you have never sailed the British Virgin Islands before, you are in for a treat. White sand beaches, gentle trade winds, crystal clear waters and friendly people wherever you go. If you have visited our island paradise before, then come and revive faded memories or discover new ones. It is truly a sailors’ haven.

The British Virgin Islands consist of approximately 50 islands and cays, the most populated of which are Tortola and Virgin Gorda. Horizon Yacht Charters’ base is located at Nanny Cay Marina in Tortola, three miles west of Road Town, the capital of the BVI. Tortola is easily accessible from the USA, UK and Europe via Puerto Rico, Antigua or St Thomas in the nearby US Virgin Islands (just a short, scenic ferry ride away).

Nanny Cay Resort and Marina offers every comfort before and after your charter. A shore-side pool, two restaurants, tennis court, beach with snorkeling reef, boutiques and provisioning store plus reasonably-priced, comfortable accommodation at Nanny Cay Hotel are all within a few steps of your boat.

The British Virgin Islands are considered by many to be the perfect destination for first-time charterers, with calm seas, constant trade winds and line-of-sight navigation. Experienced sailors will also enjoy the wealth of different islands to visit, including the coral island of Anegada. There are hundreds of anchorages to explore in the BVI. Overnight mooring buoys are available in many locations and there are plenty of attractive beach bars and restaurants around the islands.
