A great value and very fun holiday for people not completely comfortable being in command of a sailing yacht, and for those who might like some expert coaching!

Description

In addition to being a great Caribbean sailing holiday, This boat can offer a window into the amazing life of cruising and long range passage-making for people who are interested. The boats easygoing owner/yachtmaster can provide a fun and stress-free learning environment on this beautiful sailboat that offers two very nice ensuite double-accommodation guest cabins. It also has a large and comfortable cockpit with easy access to the water through its open transom. The boat carries charter amenities, including snorkeling equipment and paddle boards, and the owner knows the BVI's secret spots. Lot's of low key, down island limin' will very happily be accommodated, but you want, you can also choose to learn a few new sailing skills or, perhaps, even explore some of the skills necessary to make a life of sailing the world's oceans a dream of your own. Either way, when you leave you will have enjoyed an unforgettably fun time sailing in the Caribbean, and perhaps will have also picked up a few new sailing skills as well.
This is a 50' Bavaria built in Germany. It's perfect for two couples or a family of four because the owner's cabin is not nearby.

Cheers, Pete

Crew

Peter is AQUALIBRA's owner and is onboard to assume the responsibility for the safe operation of the vessel. He provides expert coaching if desired, but there are no other crew. He first skippered private yacht charters in the Caribbean at the dawn of the industry in the early 1980's. He has commanded sailing vessels on countless passages in the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic and Pacific oceans since he was 21, and originally learned to sail in the English Channel at age 9. He has long been an avid ocean racer and has extensively raced boats offshore single-handed and with crews of up to 30 sailors. He has also raced ultra-competitive F18 high performance catamarans. He's owned Aqualibra since 2012, which was acquired to be the safe and comfortable floating home for his mostly non-sailing wife and their twins. Peter has an unusually diverse sailing resumé and a broad-based wealth of knowledge. He really enjoys coaching enthusiastic people, and many people who have learned sailing skills with him have gone on to enjoy the confidence that his guidance was able to instill in them.

Location and Destination Guide

Usually this boat operates around Road Town, VG.

Looking for a yacht charter in the USVI? Dream sailing destinations don’t come much dreamier than the US Virgin Islands. A Caribbean hang out with an American vibe, sailing in the US Virgin Islands, or USVI, is even easier with a Sailo yacht charter.

The US Virgin Islands archipelago consists of three main islands, St John, St Croix and St Thomas.
