Motor Cruising with real Panache

Sailing in Style through the BVI

Crewed Charter Yachts need not cost an arm and a leg to enjoy and frequently cost less than you think. Often when the cost of incidentals is added up chartering a crewed yacht is often not very much more than the cost of chartering a bareboat.

The crew of the 26 metre motoryacht Panache, pamper up to eights guests in one of the finest cruising grounds available to yachts. The British Virgin Islands are a group of fabulous islands that must have been created with chartering in mind.

They are a yachtsman’s paradise, offering short sheltered passages between islands, quite anchorages, unused by others, clear blue sky, sumptuous sunshine and warm Caribbean seas all combine to make this one of natures little secrets and a great place to sail.

They become even more enjoyable when as a guest on board you have an attentive crew to look after you acting as tour guides and keeping you in a style that many of us would wish could last forever.
