This 10-night charter is available for individual cabin bookings and is a wonderful opportunity for two people to sail aboard Promenade without having to get a large group of friends together for a private charter.

 Promenade is a large yacht. Here are 7 guests sitting on half of the cabin top.
There is also the other side, the forward trampolines, the full-width cockpit and the aft deck... Plus the large body of water Promenade is floating in.


Promenade has been offering this annual all-inclusive, cabin-only charter for many years at a prime time slot in the British Virgin Islands and usually sells out quite quickly! Promenade is fully equipped and has ample charter toys and activities available on board this large spacious yacht.


DATES: Sunday, February 14 to Thursday, February 25, 2016

  • PICK UP & DROP OFF: St Thomas, USVI
  • SLEEP ABOARD: Guests are welcome to a free "sleep aboard" on the evening of Sunday, February 14th (Valentine's Day!).
  • CABIN CRUISE: The 10-night sailing will start on the morning of February 15th and finish by noon on February 25th. 

PRICE: $5500/cabin, double occupancy (i.e. $2500/person).
 
INCLUDES:
  • This will be fully crewed and inclusive of most meals and standard ship's bar 
  • Diving: one dive/day for certified divers. Gear (BC & Reg) may be rented, if needed, for $200/diver for the length of the charter.

NOT INCLUDED:
  • 2 meals off the yacht at guest's expense (one lunch and one dinner ashore, plus you are responsible for your dinner ashore on the sleep aboard night). 
  • Personal expenses such as getting to and from the yacht from the airport 
  • Anything you choose to purchase on land. 
  • BC & Regulator rental if needed for SCUBA at $200/diver for the entire charter. 
  • Crew Gratuity: typically 15-20% of charter fee adjusted up and down as you see fit

Promenade is one of the very few crewed charter yachts in the BVI that has a commercial fishing license for the yacht. They carry ballyhoo and lures for trolling, a casting net for live bait, frozen squid for bottom fishing, trolling rods, bottom fishing/spinning rods, gaff hook, landing net, various lures, bottom tackle and hand lines, as well as rod holders on the aft deck.
