Located in the eastern Caribbean, the British Virgin Islands is one of the most stunning tourist destinations in the world. The jaw-droppingly beautiful emerald-coloured waters surrounding the chain of islands attract a large number of visitors each year, including many yachting enthusiasts, who come here to enjoy the idyllic beauty of the area.
Consistent with its popularity as a yachting destination, there are now a large number of yacht charter companies offering bareboat and crewed yacht charters for tourists, as well as all types of vessels from motorboats and sailboats to catamarans.
