With this year’s unpredictable yacht charter landscape, it’s no wonder that many people are a bit apprehensive about planning vacations. You might’ve had some grand, world-exploring plans that had to be scrapped due to the global pandemic, or maybe you were just expecting to get away for a week, only to cancel when the trip was just a short time away. No matter what 2020 held for your vacationing plans, one thing has become increasingly clear over the last couple of months: the BVI will be the place to spend Spring 2021.
If you’ve been trying to book a yacht charter vacation this year, you’ve probably had a difficult time of it. Whether you endured cancellations in the spring and early summer, the uncertainty of fall bookings, or the limited availability of yachts this winter, you likely encountered some measure of difficulty in trying to plan the ideal vacation. But for those of you looking ahead, Spring 2021 is looking promising for yacht charters in the BVI and now is the time to book.
The September to early November window is the perfect time to plan and book BVI catamaran charters for the spring, giving you the maximum number of options needed to create the perfect vacation. With so many boats planning to emerge in the Spring, we’re expecting the BVI to be an even more exciting place to be than usual. That being said, because the BVI will be opening busier than it has in an entire year, make sure you reach out to start planning as soon as possible.
As experienced BVI catamaran charter brokers, we at Regency work hard to build the perfect vacation tailored to fit your vacationing goals. Are you interested in a fast-paced, sporty charter full of activities, hopping from one adventure to the next? We can make that happen. Perhaps you’re looking for something high-end, focused on relaxation and luxury and having every need attended to aboard an exclusive yacht? There are several boats sailing the BVI that certainly fit the bill. However, to some of you, both options might seem equally appealing, which might make you feel like there isn’t a boat out there that really meets all of your goals. You need something truly outstanding to give you the vacation of your dreams, something so unique, opulent, and riveting that your experience onboard will be completely unforgettable. Well, we have more good news for you. Our brokers have recently gained access to one of the most exquisite catamarans on this side of the world: Gracious.
Gracious: One of the Most Exclusive BVI Catamaran Charters
Even in an industry as full of luxury as the yacht charter industry, Gracious stands out as what is certainly one of the finest BVI catamaran experiences available for charter. In fact, we are one of only 3 companies that have rights to book charters on this sleek, modern vessel, ensuring that you’ll be among the fortunate few who have enjoyed the countless comforts offered on board. We recommend planning a trip aboard Gracious as early as possible, as she is only available during certain seasons and her schedule fills up much faster than the average yacht.
What Gracious Has to Offer
This Sunreef 60 was launched in 2020 with the most discerning clientele in mind. From bow to stern, no expense was spared in creating what is certainly one of the finest catamarans sailing in the Western Hemisphere. As an owner’s model offered only occasionally for charter, she offers pure luxury down to the finest detail in an expansive design built to maximize onboard space.
Gracious comfortably accommodates up to 8 guests in 4 unique staterooms, one of which is a massive custom-designed master king suite. As a custom owner’s model, Gracious’ master suite was built with incredible attention to detail, featuring a sleek design that practically defines
modern luxury. In addition to tasteful and precise styling, the king stateroom also features such amenities as a sizable ensuite bathroom, a walk-in shower, and large, sunny windows.
Outside of your quarters, you can enjoy the finer things in the main salon, which truly must be seen to be believed. It features a gorgeous backlit bar stocked with premium liquors and wines, a state-of-the-art Sonos speaker system, USB charging stations for your devices, and a pop-up 55’ TV. For a more understated setting, the comfortable and open aft deck lounge offers a perfect place for alfresco dining and relaxation, giving you and your group an excellent place to spend your evenings chatting and sipping cocktails. If you find yourself wanting to enjoy the warmth and sunlight of the BVI, Gracious also features an expanded top deck, ensuring that you and your group have plenty of space for lounging.
Should you grow tired of lounging in comfort, Gracious offers an incredible array of water toys, even by yacht charter standards! If you want to enjoy high-speed watersports, like wakeboarding or waterskiing, Gracious comes equipped with a sporty 14’ tender with a powerful 75hp motor. If something slower-paced and more relaxing seems like the order of the day, there are also 2 SeaBobs, paddleboards, and a floating sun cushion. Your crew can even set you up with the onboard fishing supplies if you feel like catching your dinner.
Meet the Crew
It’s fitting that a catamaran as amazing as Gracious has an amazing crew to match! Gracious is attended by the enthusiastic pair, Captain Andrew and Chef Michaela, who understand the ins-and-outs of hospitality and adventure in equal parts. These two bring warmth and spontaneity to the world of high-end yacht charters, all while maintaining a level of world-class service that is exceptional even within their field. Andrew and Michaela have been sailing as Captain and Crew for the last 5 years, exploring every
islet and port in the BVI and USVI. These two love nothing more than sharing their love for sailing, exploring, and adventuring with guests. As a U.S. Sailing Certified Instructor, Andrew is a master of his trade. He’s incredibly well-versed in all things nautical, having spent years as a teacher and sailor himself before becoming a charter captain. Michaela is a Virgin Islands native and professionally-trained chef who is well-known for her creative and sumptuous cuisine. She crafts her meals using local, fresh ingredients as frequently as possible, ensuring that every meal you eat on board is nothing less than world class. This charter team is joined by a third crew member to make sure operations run smoothly.
