There are not many charter yachts still available for New Years (especially one that can accommodate 8 guests) and we are happy to present you with this wonderful opportunity.

Drumbeat is available for a New Years charter beginning as early as December 30, 2015. Wouldn't ringing in the new year in the Virgin Islands be super?

This will make a Happy New Year for someone...

Charter yacht Drumbeat 1, a 72-foot Irwin ketch, is one of our favorite yachts in the charter fleet. The experienced and excellent crew are outstanding in service: sailing, diving, cuisine, fun, and relaxation.

Due to recent changes in US Coast Guard regulations, Drumbeat is now allowed to pick up 1-8 guests in St Thomas. Charters of more than 6 guests no longer have to meet them in Tortola. What a great time & money saver!

Vince with fresh lobster for dinner!

Drumbeat is a 72-foot Irwin ketch with a crew of three, owner-operated by Vince & Linda, and assisted by Kirk, a longtime crew member. Drumbeat is fully air conditioned and accommodates up to 8 guests in 4 equivalent double cabins, each with private ensuite head/shower.

Don't miss a game... Drumbeat has satellite TV.

Vince is a dive instructor and includes diving (5 dives/week) or both certified and non-certified divers.

There's more to do besides diving and eating Linda's excellent cooking! Drumbeat has an 18-foot dinghy with 115HP motor, waterskis, wakeboard, tube, kayaks, standup paddleboards (SUPs), rope swing, fishing gear, snorkel equipment, floating mats, hydroslide, hammock, DVDs, satellite TV, 42" LCD flatscreen in salon... or relax in the shaded cockpit or in the hammock, read a book, listen to some tunes... or go ashore and check out the beach... endless possibilities :)

A great choice for families, group of friends, and honeymooners too!


This is a great opportunity for someone but, if these dates don't work out for you, contact Paradise Connections to check availability for other dates or make an early booking for the 2016-17 holidays!
