Charter Yacht Corus: News and Special Offer

The charter yacht Corus, a Whitby 42 ketch, is one of our favorite charter yachts for two. We have a bit of news from Bill and Ann, including a special offer.

Charter Yacht Corus - Crewed Caribbean Yacht Charters
 - Sailing and Dive Vacations in the Virgin Islands -


For new bookings with charters taking place between March 1 and August 1, 2014 in the British Virgin Islands, the special rates for 2 guests are:
7 nights=$5400  ---  6 nights=$4630  ---  5 nights=$3860

Bill and Ann brought their experience from careers in the hospitality industry to crewed chartering, and it shows. They love and respect the BVIs; promoting and protecting its bounty and beauty. They are keen to share their knowledge of the Territory with their guests.

Both are active in sports... playing tennis, cycling, hiking, as well as engaging with guests in the tropical pleasures of swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. Bill’s knowledge of the BVI dive sites for both the newbie and the expert diver is unrivalled.

Bill and Ann both have many interests. They are very well read, have travelled extensively and continue to love meeting new people; hosting them and entertaining them.

Ann’s outstanding culinary skills are well known throughout the charter fleet. She continues her foodie quest, so no meal preference or dietary need is a barrier to a gourmet dining experience on Corus.

Corus is in tip top shape through constant upgrading and replacement. These include recently renewed salon upholstery in smooth natural linen and cockpit cushions in Sunbrella providing comfortable seating throughout the boat. In addition, Corus has a new 25hp four-stroke engine on their 14-foot Nouvriana center-cockpit tender.”

Corus is a Whitby 42 ketch, owned and crewed by the British couple, Bill and Ann Hasted. Corus has a large guest cabin aft with a queen-sized berth, ensuite head/shower and a separate entrance via the center cockpit.  Corus has a 14-foot dinghy with 25HP 4-stroke motor, 2 one-person kayaks, snorkel equipment, hammock, DVD on laptop, beach toys, underwater camera & video, Celeston GPS Sky Scout, onboard internet to occasionally check email from ship's computer, or bring your laptop and use local hotspots where available, etc. Bill is a Dive Master and includes 4 dives/week for certified divers. Divers may bring their own gear or rent.


We have had many successful charters aboard Corus. Here's a review from one couple...
We had a terrific week with Ann and Bill. It was really relaxing and truly enjoyable. Both of them are very interesting and did everything to make our stay a fantastic experience. The boat lends itself very well for a cruise and the diving and food are great additions to the sailing. Thank you for guiding us in our choice and your patience in finalizing the vacations. We look forward to another experience.

Very best, G.

Looking forward to your inquiries!
