Wintering in the BVI Aboard a Privilege Yacht

Have you been dreaming about your next vacation a bit more than usual? Maybe you made some grand plans this summer that you had to cancel due to the coronavirus, or maybe you’ve been biding your time, waiting for just the right opportunity to begin planning a trip. In either case, if you’re anything like us, the idea of getting away for awhile is positively alluring. But as vacation schedules continue to be subject to change, the questions remain: where should you go, and what can you safely plan to do once you get there? While both of these questions are usually a bit easier to answer than they are now, that doesn’t mean that you’re all out of vacation options for the year. In fact, if you’re interested in sailing aboard a private, luxury yacht charter, the BVI is shaping up to be an ideal vacation destination for Winter 2020-2021.

At Regency Yacht Charters, we’ve helped create custom vacations for countless clients, and we’re always ready to help you make the perfect itinerary for you and your group. But what does that perfect vacation look like? To us, it looks like a vacation aboard any one of these 3 Privilege 615 catamarans.

Privilege Catamarans in the BVI

Some of our favorite catamarans to recommend to clients, the Privilege 615’s offer levels of comfort and flexibility that make every experience aboard unique. Each of the 3 Privilege 615’s we represent, Anastasia, Luar, and Elysium, have distinctive interior design styles, layouts, and personalities, and all were built in the prestigious and renowned Privilege shipyard. Perhaps best of all, any combination of these three yachts can be chartered together for larger groups, meaning you and your close family friends can take two or even three yachts on an island-hopping adventure.

Back from a total refit in 2018, Anastasia is among the finest catamarans in the entirety of the BVI. This catamaran won the Best Yacht and Best Crew categories in the 2017 USVI Charter Yacht Show, and she boasts a wealth of unique characteristics that put her in the position to win these prestigious awards. Anastasia features a master suite that runs her full width, and not one, but 2 queen cabins that are as comfortable as they are stylish. What’s more, she also features new, state-of-the-art entertainment systems, meaning that there will never be a dull moment while aboard. As for her crew, Anastasia has one of the best in the business. Captain Ryan and Chef Lesli have a wealth of information on the BVI and the Caribbean at large, and they love to share the benefits of their experience with guests. Whether you’re seeking out some hidden cove or sampling the best of the local fare as prepared by Chef Lesli, you’re sure to enjoy every second of your charter onboard Anastasia.


Luar is an exceptional example of a yacht that’s planned for comfort first and foremost. Every detail, from the warm maple interior to the well-spaced but sizable couches, is designed to help you relax, unwind, and feel comfortable. Luar accommodates up to 6 guests in a massive master stateroom that is among the largest for a catamaran of her size and 2 additional VIP cabins. Each cabin has its own ensuite head with fantastic spa showers. This catamaran is crewed by the seasoned Rich and Lisa, who have a total of 30 years of seafaring experience between them. This pair’s unique dynamic and dedication to service charms every guest fortunate enough to meet them.


This Privilege catamaran is the perfect vessel for families and other groups that are looking for the most emphasis on shared space. Elysium offers significant space for every guest, from her spacious salon to her gorgeous flybridge with 360 degree views to her expansive deck. This catamaran is perfect for groups looking for new and exciting ways to spend their days enjoying one another’s company. Elysium houses up to 7 guests in 3 amazing king cabins and one twin cabin accessible from the deck. She is crewed by the charming German couple, Mike and Stef, who have been sailing together for the past 17 years in the Mediterranean, the North Atlantic, the Indian Ocean, and the Caribbean.
