Be one of the first to charter the largest bareboat in the British Virgins. At 63 feet she is a full 10 feet longer than the largest Moorings and Sunsail offerings. More like a private yacht than a bareboat, she has comfortable accommodations for three couples, a huge well equiped galley, full air conditioning, 110v generator and twin engines for easy manoeuvrability.

Originally a popular and very successful crewed yacht, her new owners have put her through an extensive refit and adapted her for bareboat charter. She is not new, but unlike most bareboats, she has been carefully maintained by a full time crew and is in excellent condition. At an introductory winter price of $7000 per week she offers incredible value. A Moorings 52' Gib'Sea bareboat charters for $8785. For this summer her rate will be $4900 ($6300 after November 1st).

We have known this boat for many years and do feel, for the right people, she represents a great opportunity to charter something different. Besides being considerably larger, she has the look of a private yacht rather than part of a bareboat fleet. Naturally only people with plenty of skippering experience on larger bareboats in the BVI will be able to bareboat a yacht of this size, although a hired skipper can be provided if needed.

She has an unusual layout with all three guest cabins forward. These can be accessed via a private companionway from the forward guest cockpit, or via a passageway from the salon, which is aft. The galley and a small cabin with over/under berths are amidships. Her twin cockpit design and masses of flat decks provide plenty of sunning space and her transom swim platform provides easy access to the water.

Her owners only want to charter her for ten weeks a year and have scheduled at least 5 days between charters to keep her in first class condition. Prime weeks are already booking (although Christmas and New Year are still available) so if you are interested, check out her website or request more information right away.
