We are particularly pleased to welcome back Geoff and Bambi Alexander, crew of ‘Alexis‘. Catamarans tend to be expensive for just two guests, but this 38’ Admiral is a perfect choice for a couple, though she can actually accommodate up to 4 guests in her two double cabins. ‘Alexis’ charters in the BVI and US Virgin Islands at a very reasonable inclusive charter ...

The 96′ luxury motor yacht Bermuda IV has four spaces open on a scuba charter August 9 – 14, 2008, sailing around Bermuda.

It has been quite a show. Of the 84 yachts, most were luxury power boats, the largest being the 160 foot Lurssen ‘El Chris’. We particularly liked ‘Happy Dolphin’, with its ...

The end of next week marks the annual Virgin Island Spring Charter Yacht Show, which is being held in Tortola, BVI for the second year. Ed Hamilton & Co has found this show to be invaluable, giving the brokers who attend a chance to see not only new yachts and crews who have since come into charter after the larger November show; but ...

How far out should we reserve is a common question we get. The topic is as complex as the answer is simple – book as soon as you know when, where, and what you want to charter. Some people feel that by waiting to the last minute, they’ll get the best deal. While charter companies do often offer last minute discounts, it’s almost ...

Many larger power yachts reposition for the spring and summer months to New England and the Mediterranean, leaving a shortage of luxury motor yachts for charter in The Caribbean. This year, SHALIMAR, a 118′ Benetti Tri Deck will be remaining in the Caribbean, taking advantage of the calm waters, sunny skies and minimal crowds. Based in Tortola, in The British Virgin Islands, she ...
