Nautic Blue 463/464 Captain's Report

As a former US and British Virgin Islands charter skipper, I've spent years plying the waters in and around Tortola, BVI, the headquarters of Nautic Blue yacht charters. I have also done numerous bare boat powerboat charters with a variety of companies, and I can tell you without reservation that Nautic Blue is the best charter company going for two reasons: its location, and its yachts.



First, location. The BVIs are where everybody goes whether they charter from there or from St. Thomas, USVI, so by starting your charter in Tortola, BVI you're already ahead of the game. Second, the new Nautic Blue 463/464's provide a whole new level of comfort and speed when compared to the older monohulls offered by the competition. Our 463 hit a top end speed of 21 knots, and they have a 464 with a foil that's capable of doing 30 knots. Why does speed matter when you're on vacation? Simple. A fast boat lets you sleep in longer, get to the dive site sooner, and stay out later in the day. While the "slow boats" have to pick up anchor from their day spots around 4pm to make it to their next harbor, you can stay out until around 5:30pm before heading for your anchorage, since you'll get there fast.



The 463 has 3 double staterooms, while the 464 has four. The dinette converts to a double berth as well, so the 464 can actually accommodate 10 overnight guests. The boats are spotless and well provisioned, and the standard equipment list onboard is second to none: electric dinghy lift, icemaker, electronic chart plotter at the upper and lower helms, autopilot, and of course, a rugged blender all combine to make your crusing vacation luxurious and trouble free.



While the normal charter trip is one week, I'd opt for a 10-day package. Even though the British Virgin Islands are only about 25 miles long from end to end, you'll want to spend more than one night at several destinations, including the Bitter End Yacht Club and the low-lying island of Anegada.



Charter rates range from $1,075 to $1,395 per day per person, so with 8 guests its as low as $135 per day/person plus meals. With a rate like that, and the world's largest charter company (The Moorings) backing up Nautic Blue, I'm sure you'll find as we did that your BVI charter will be the best one you've ever done.--Capt. Chris Kelly
