We really enjoyed our trip aboard Mimbaw.  Bastiaan was a very experienced, knowledgeable and confident Captain which made it really relaxing for us. We felt very well taken care of by both Bastiaan and Christina.

Bastiaan was energetic, accommodating and fun.  We had a great adventure with a nice mix of time playing on the water and time ashore.  Bastiian was flexible with the schedule and activities. The diving was fun and super affordable.  Christina was sweet, fun and an experienced sailor.  Her meals were tasty, healthy and creative.  Mimbaw is a great boat for an active group.

Just wanted to send you a quick note of appreciation for letting us take Dolphin Dance for the last two weeks. My crew and I had a delightful time and were thoroughly impressed with your operation. In the Caribbean, we had sailed the BVI previously, but never St. Lucia, the Grenadines, or Grenada. After consulting with the rest of the crew, I think we’re keen to possibly make a return trip in the future and if so would love to work with you again.

Jacqui was very easy to work with for the reservation process. Lisa was great with immigration and customs in St Vincent. Staff in Grenada very helpful – would definitely recommend!

David Walworth, “Fly Bye” Lagoon 440 Catamaran, July 2016 St Vincent & the Grenadines.

We have had the pleasure of 14 other bareboat charters in the BVI, and none had such a trouble- free and hassle- free boat and staff as your operation at Nanny Cay. No boat problems, no rig problems, no broken fan belts, no valves frozen, and no mesquitos on board!! What a delight! The anamometer even worked and the auto pilot let us hold our heading. Our next charter might be in the Grenadines, and we will be looking for your operation in that area.

You have earned another customer who visits frequently.

Thanks for your attention to details!! It makes the difference!

Thinking of you and wishing you a MERRY CHRISTMAS & PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!

We expect little issues to go wrong on a sailboat…it was great to have Giles ready to fix things and ensure the crew was happy on our trip (a very important part of a return trip). We used Moorings for our first charter and were very disappointed. Horizon was night and day better.

Thanks!

I just wanted to thank everyone at Horizon Yacht Charters for another wonderful charter this year. Your crew and staff were very helpful in all facets of our charter from the planning, arranging taxis, expediting provisions, confirming ferry times and locations, as well as quickly replacing our lost boat hook!  Your staff is always friendly, courteous and very efficient. Swift Sally, was clean and well maintained. She was in great shape when we went aboard!

Thank you again! We hope to see you again for our next charter to the BVI!

Trish Greene, “Swift Sally”, March 2016

“Maple Cookie” Fountaine Pajot, Helia) was by far and above the best yacht we have chartered over the past 12 years!

The layout for sailing, winches, getting around the exterior, the interior salon and cabins was pretty much perfect. Lines were all clearly labeled, (I usually bring my own tape and markers) so took very little time for the crew to learn the system. The elect 2 speed winch was perfect! Reef was fast set up for and easy to use. The dingy was larger and had a motor that we could actually get someplace fast, thanks so much since that is always a concern with us.

The cabin ventilation was the best of any other charter. No-one had any problems and we didn’t even need the A.C. Another best of, the refrigeration and freezer. First time we didn’t waste food. Fridges were large and kept the food fresh the entire 8 nights and freezer kept all the ice frozen! That’s a first!

The final best of is I did not have to fix anything! Nada, First time I didn’t spend hours fixing a water pump, wiring, lines, loose bolts, or something. Overall, I can’t think of anything negative. We had no problems and everyone on-board agreed this was one of the best charters we have had to date.

Thanks to Everyone on the staff for their help on every minute detail!

Susanne and I chartered Scallywag, a Bavaria 33, from 03/12 through 03/19, for a bareboat cruise out of Tortola and throughout the British Virgin Islands. This was our first charter through Horizon, having used other charter companies in the past.

From beginning to end, the staff at Horizon made sure there were no problems and that our expectations were met. That type of service and attitude will cause us to be repeat customers, either at that base or elsewhere in the Caribbean.

James & Nicole Dury, “Mucho Gusto” Lagoon 410, Grenada Dec 2015.

Returned home last week after a 10 day charter, my second experience with HYC and my first on a catamaran. We had a crew of 6 and a skipper, Shaun Tarr – highly recommended. As he put it, he was there to keep us safe; teach me to sail the cat and to do what I did not want to do. Sailing a cat is quite different from a monohull and this is an incredible yacht.
Once again, I was very favorably impressed with the professional service provided by Horizon.

We all agree that our experience with HYC in Grenada will bring us back.

John Murphy, “Marine Venus” Leopard 46, October 2015, Grenada

David Walworth, “Fly Bye” Lagoon 440 Catamaran, July 2016 St Vincent & the Grenadines.

We recently returned from a fantastic sail in the Grenadines (from St-Vincent to Grenada).  The boat, a 45 foot Jeanneau (Dolphin Dance II) made it a very comfortable journey and we were lucky to have a fantastic local skipper – Collin Laborde.  This guy knows these islands very intimately, the best spots to anchor, and coached us in maneuvering our boat safely and comfortably.
 
We could also fish for fresh stuff right out of behind our cockpit and he prepared the fish and cooked with us.  We end up calling him “Captain Cook !!!”  
 
He was also very respectful of our intimacy and knew the places to shop for local fare or directly from fishermen.
 
We totally loved it and we will come back!
 
Michel and Renee, Dolphin Dance II, Jeanneau 45 DS, April-May 2016.

We greatly enjoyed our sail on Dolphin Dance and the service and support of yourself and all the Horizon staff.

We are certain this sail has been the best of all of our 8 or so Caribbean charters.  We met many local Vincentians and Grenadines on this trip, it’s one of the things we try to seek out, and that made this trip particularly special.  It’s something to feel one is leaving friends when returning from new places!

Kind Regards to you and all at Horizon

Greg and Lynda Jo, Jeanneau 45DS “Dolphin Dance II”, St Vincent & the Grenadines Feb/March 2016

I just want to let you know what a fabulous experience we had. All of us agreed that the trip was made even better with Collin as the captain. He certainly is a big asset for your company. I would recommend him to anyone that was a novice sailor or even a experience one. Again I cannot impress on you enough how great Collin was. Please let Lisa at Blue lagoon know. We did tell her, but we would like to also let you know what a great job she did.

From beginning to end, the staff at Horizon made sure there were no problems and that our expectations were met. That type of service and attitude will cause us to be repeat customers, either at that base or elsewhere in the Caribbean.

Grenada and the Grenadines

Our trip with Peter and Sylvie was amazing.  They are extremely attentive and gracious hosts and put together a wonderful week.  Our family really enjoyed ourselves and came away with lots of great memories.  The meals were incredible, the sailing awesome and the snorkelling a blast.   A trip worth repeating!

Michael Bragg, “Jambalaya” Carriacou Schooner 73, March 2016, Grenada

Excellent! Thanks for a fab holiday!

James & Nicole Dury, “Mucho Gusto” Lagoon 410, Grenada Dec 2015.

Returned home last week after a 10 day charter, my second experience with HYC and my first on a catamaran. We had a crew of 6 and a skipper, Shaun Tarr – highly recommended. As he put it, he was there to keep us safe; teach me to sail the cat and to do what I did not want to do. Sailing a cat is quite different from a monohull and this is an incredible yacht.
Once again, I was very favorably impressed with the professional service provided by Horizon.

We all agree that our experience with HYC in Grenada will bring us back.

John Murphy, “Marine Venus” Leopard 46, October 2015, Grenada

Great trip – best charter ever!

Karen Smith – Mucho Gusto – July 21 – 31, 2015, Grenada

 

I will definitely recommend HYC to others.

Andrea Steffanelo – Star Chaser – July 11 – 17, 2015

Fantastic two weeks on Mucho Gusto! Great preparation for clearing in/out; great prep from Bernadette – charts and places to see and eat!

St Vincent & the Grenadines

Just wanted to send you a quick note of appreciation for letting us take Dolphin Dance for the last two weeks. My crew and I had a delightful time and were thoroughly impressed with your operation. In the Caribbean, we had sailed the BVI previously, but never St. Lucia, the Grenadines, or Grenada. After consulting with the rest of the crew, I think we’re keen to possibly make a return trip in the future and if so would love to work with you again.

Robert Shields, Dolphin Dance – Jeanneau 45, August 20 – September 3 2016, St Lucia to Grenada

Jacqui was very easy to work with for the reservation process. Lisa was great with immigration and customs in St Vincent. Staff in Grenada very helpful – would definitely recommend!

David Walworth, “Fly Bye” Lagoon 440 Catamaran, July 2016 St Vincent & the Grenadines.

We recently returned from a fantastic sail in the Grenadines (from St-Vincent to Grenada).  The boat, a 45 foot Jeanneau (Dolphin Dance II) made it a very comfortable journey and we were lucky to have a fantastic local skipper – Collin Laborde.  This guy knows these islands very intimately, the best spots to anchor, and coached us in maneuvering our boat safely and comfortably.
 
We could also fish for fresh stuff right out of behind our cockpit and he prepared the fish and cooked with us.  We end up calling him “Captain Cook !!!”  
 
He was also very respectful of our intimacy and knew the places to shop for local fare or directly from fishermen.
 
We totally loved it and we will come back!
 
Michel and Renee, Dolphin Dance II, Jeanneau 45 DS, April-May 2016.

We greatly enjoyed our sail on Dolphin Dance and the service and support of yourself and all the Horizon staff.

We are certain this sail has been the best of all of our 8 or so Caribbean charters.  We met many local Vincentians and Grenadines on this trip, it’s one of the things we try to seek out, and that made this trip particularly special.  It’s something to feel one is leaving friends when returning from new places!

Kind Regards to you and all at Horizon

Greg and Lynda Jo, Jeanneau 45DS “Dolphin Dance II”, St Vincent & the Grenadines Feb/March 2016

I just want to let you know what a fabulous experience we had. All of us agreed that the trip was made even better with Collin as the captain. He certainly is a big asset for your company. I would recommend him to anyone that was a novice sailor or even a experience one. Again I cannot impress on you enough how great Collin was. Please let Lisa at Blue lagoon know. We did tell her, but we would like to also let you know what a great job she did.

John Pacyga, “Dolphin Dance” Jeanneau 45DS from Nov. 25th to Dec. 2nd 2015, St Vincent.

I was very pleased with the overall condition of the boat. Given the success in placing it on charter I expected to see some wear and tear to the interior and in general. However it looked great and I was really pleased!

We have had the pleasure of 14 other bareboat charters in the BVI, and none had such a trouble- free and hassle- free boat and staff as your operation at Nanny Cay. No boat problems, no rig problems, no broken fan belts, no valves frozen, and no mesquitos on board!! What a delight! The anamometer even worked and the auto pilot let us hold our heading. Our next charter might be in the Grenadines, and we will be looking for your operation in that area.

You have earned another customer who visits frequently.

Thanks for your attention to details!! It makes the difference!

We really enjoyed our trip aboard Mimbaw.  Bastiaan was a very experienced, knowledgeable and confident Captain which made it really relaxing for us. We felt very well taken care of by both Bastiaan and Christina.

Bastiaan was energetic, accommodating and fun.  We had a great adventure with a nice mix of time playing on the water and time ashore.  Bastiian was flexible with the schedule and activities. The diving was fun and super affordable.  Christina was sweet, fun and an experienced sailor.  Her meals were tasty, healthy and creative.  Mimbaw is a great boat for an active group.

A year has passed since we were your guests last time. This year we have not planned for any mid winter sailing in warmer waters. We hope still to have some years to come and sail in your waters and introduce our son and daughter with partners and grandchildren to Caribbean.

Thinking of you and wishing you a MERRY CHRISTMAS & PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!

I just wanted to send a quick email praising Giles for making our Charter fantastic. He was professional, efficient, and friendly. We expect little issues to go wrong on a sailboat…it was great to have Giles ready to fix things and ensure the crew was happy on our trip (a very important part of a return trip). We used Moorings for our first charter and were very disappointed. Horizon was night and day better.

Thanks!

I just wanted to thank everyone at Horizon Yacht Charters for another wonderful charter this year. Your crew and staff were very helpful in all facets of our charter from the planning, arranging taxis, expediting provisions, confirming ferry times and locations, as well as quickly replacing our lost boat hook!  Your staff is always friendly, courteous and very efficient. Swift Sally, was clean and well maintained. She was in great shape when we went aboard!

Thank you again! We hope to see you again for our next charter to the BVI!

Trish Greene, “Swift Sally”, March 2016

“Maple Cookie” Fountaine Pajot, Helia) was by far and above the best yacht we have chartered over the past 12 years!

The layout for sailing, winches, getting around the exterior, the interior salon and cabins was pretty much perfect. Lines were all clearly labeled, (I usually bring my own tape and markers) so took very little time for the crew to learn the system. The elect 2 speed winch was perfect! Reef was fast set up for and easy to use. The dingy was larger and had a motor that we could actually get someplace fast, thanks so much since that is always a concern with us.

The cabin ventilation was the best of any other charter. No-one had any problems and we didn’t even need the A.C. Another best of, the refrigeration and freezer. First time we didn’t waste food. Fridges were large and kept the food fresh the entire 8 nights and freezer kept all the ice frozen! That’s a first!

The final best of is I did not have to fix anything! Nada, First time I didn’t spend hours fixing a water pump, wiring, lines, loose bolts, or something. Overall, I can’t think of anything negative. We had no problems and everyone on-board agreed this was one of the best charters we have had to date.

Thanks to Everyone on the staff for their help on every minute detail!

Dear Jackie & Al,

A year has passed since we were your guests last time. This year we have not planned for any mid winter sailing in warmer waters. We hope still to have some years to come and sail in your waters and introduce our son and daughter with partners and grandchildren to Caribbean.

Thinking of you and wishing you a MERRY CHRISTMAS & PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!

I just wanted to send a quick email praising Giles for making our Charter fantastic. He was professional, efficient, and friendly. We expect little issues to go wrong on a sailboat…it was great to have Giles ready to fix things and ensure the crew was happy on our trip (a very important part of a return trip). We used Moorings for our first charter and were very disappointed. Horizon was night and day better.

Thanks!

We have had the pleasure of 14 other bareboat charters in the BVI, and none had such a trouble- free and hassle- free boat and staff as your operation at Nanny Cay. No boat problems, no rig problems, no broken fan belts, no valves frozen, and no mesquitos on board!! What a delight! The anamometer even worked and the auto pilot let us hold our heading. Our next charter might be in the Grenadines, and we will be looking for your operation in that area.

You have earned another customer who visits frequently.

Thanks for your attention to details!! It makes the difference!

I just wanted to thank everyone at Horizon Yacht Charters for another wonderful charter this year. Your crew and staff were very helpful in all facets of our charter from the planning, arranging taxis, expediting provisions, confirming ferry times and locations, as well as quickly replacing our lost boat hook!  Your staff is always friendly, courteous and very efficient. Swift Sally, was clean and well maintained. She was in great shape when we went aboard!

Thank you again! We hope to see you again for our next charter to the BVI!

Trish Greene, “Swift Sally”, March 2016

“Maple Cookie” Fountaine Pajot, Helia) was by far and above the best yacht we have chartered over the past 12 years!

The layout for sailing, winches, getting around the exterior, the interior salon and cabins was pretty much perfect. Lines were all clearly labeled, (I usually bring my own tape and markers) so took very little time for the crew to learn the system. The elect 2 speed winch was perfect! Reef was fast set up for and easy to use. The dingy was larger and had a motor that we could actually get someplace fast, thanks so much since that is always a concern with us.

The cabin ventilation was the best of any other charter. No-one had any problems and we didn’t even need the A.C. Another best of, the refrigeration and freezer. First time we didn’t waste food. Fridges were large and kept the food fresh the entire 8 nights and freezer kept all the ice frozen! That’s a first!

The final best of is I did not have to fix anything! Nada, First time I didn’t spend hours fixing a water pump, wiring, lines, loose bolts, or something. Overall, I can’t think of anything negative. We had no problems and everyone on-board agreed this was one of the best charters we have had to date.

Thanks to Everyone on the staff for their help on every minute detail!

Susanne and I chartered Scallywag, a Bavaria 33, from 03/12 through 03/19, for a bareboat cruise out of Tortola and throughout the British Virgin Islands. This was our first charter through Horizon, having used other charter companies in the past.

From beginning to end, the staff at Horizon made sure there were no problems and that our expectations were met. That type of service and attitude will cause us to be repeat customers, either at that base or elsewhere in the Caribbean.

James & Nicole Dury, “Mucho Gusto” Lagoon 410, Grenada Dec 2015.

Returned home last week after a 10 day charter, my second experience with HYC and my first on a catamaran. We had a crew of 6 and a skipper, Shaun Tarr – highly recommended. As he put it, he was there to keep us safe; teach me to sail the cat and to do what I did not want to do. Sailing a cat is quite different from a monohull and this is an incredible yacht.
Once again, I was very favorably impressed with the professional service provided by Horizon.

We all agree that our experience with HYC in Grenada will bring us back.

John Murphy, “Marine Venus” Leopard 46, October 2015, Grenada

St Vincent & the Grenadines

Just wanted to send you a quick note of appreciation for letting us take Dolphin Dance for the last two weeks. My crew and I had a delightful time and were thoroughly impressed with your operation. In the Caribbean, we had sailed the BVI previously, but never St. Lucia, the Grenadines, or Grenada. After consulting with the rest of the crew, I think we’re keen to possibly make a return trip in the future and if so would love to work with you again.

Robert Shields, Dolphin Dance – Jeanneau 45, August 20 – September 3 2016, St Lucia to Grenada

Jacqui was very easy to work with for the reservation process. Lisa was great with immigration and customs in St Vincent. Staff in Grenada very helpful – would definitely recommend!

David Walworth, “Fly Bye” Lagoon 440 Catamaran, July 2016 St Vincent & the Grenadines.

We recently returned from a fantastic sail in the Grenadines (from St-Vincent to Grenada).  The boat, a 45 foot Jeanneau (Dolphin Dance II) made it a very comfortable journey and we were lucky to have a fantastic local skipper – Collin Laborde.  This guy knows these islands very intimately, the best spots to anchor, and coached us in maneuvering our boat safely and comfortably.
 
We could also fish for fresh stuff right out of behind our cockpit and he prepared the fish and cooked with us.  We end up calling him “Captain Cook !!!”  
 
He was also very respectful of our intimacy and knew the places to shop for local fare or directly from fishermen.
 
We totally loved it and we will come back!
 
Michel and Renee, Dolphin Dance II, Jeanneau 45 DS, April-May 2016.

We greatly enjoyed our sail on Dolphin Dance and the service and support of yourself and all the Horizon staff.

We are certain this sail has been the best of all of our 8 or so Caribbean charters.  We met many local Vincentians and Grenadines on this trip, it’s one of the things we try to seek out, and that made this trip particularly special.  It’s something to feel one is leaving friends when returning from new places!

Kind Regards to you and all at Horizon

Greg and Lynda Jo, Jeanneau 45DS “Dolphin Dance II”, St Vincent & the Grenadines Feb/March 2016

I just want to let you know what a fabulous experience we had. All of us agreed that the trip was made even better with Collin as the captain. He certainly is a big asset for your company. I would recommend him to anyone that was a novice sailor or even a experience one. Again I cannot impress on you enough how great Collin was. Please let Lisa at Blue lagoon know. We did tell her, but we would like to also let you know what a great job she did.

John Pacyga, “Dolphin Dance” Jeanneau 45DS from Nov. 25th to Dec. 2nd 2015, St Vincent.

Good, solid, clean boat – well maintained – shore staff a delight to deal with. Would highly recommend.

We recently returned from a fantastic sail in the Grenadines (from St-Vincent to Grenada).  The boat, a 45 foot Jeanneau (Dolphin Dance II) made it a very comfortable journey and we were lucky to have a fantastic local skipper – Collin Laborde.  This guy knows these islands very intimately, the best spots to anchor, and coached us in maneuvering our boat safely and comfortably.
 
We could also fish for fresh stuff right out of behind our cockpit and he prepared the fish and cooked with us.  We end up calling him “Captain Cook !!!”  
 
He was also very respectful of our intimacy and knew the places to shop for local fare or directly from fishermen.
 
We totally loved it and we will come back!
 
Michel and Renee, Dolphin Dance II, Jeanneau 45 DS, April-May 2016.

We greatly enjoyed our sail on Dolphin Dance and the service and support of yourself and all the Horizon staff.

We are certain this sail has been the best of all of our 8 or so Caribbean charters.  We met many local Vincentians and Grenadines on this trip, it’s one of the things we try to seek out, and that made this trip particularly special.  It’s something to feel one is leaving friends when returning from new places!

Kind Regards to you and all at Horizon

Greg and Lynda Jo, Jeanneau 45DS “Dolphin Dance II”, St Vincent & the Grenadines Feb/March 2016

I just want to let you know what a fabulous experience we had. All of us agreed that the trip was made even better with Collin as the captain. He certainly is a big asset for your company. I would recommend him to anyone that was a novice sailor or even a experience one. Again I cannot impress on you enough how great Collin was. Please let Lisa at Blue lagoon know. We did tell her, but we would like to also let you know what a great job she did.

Good, solid, clean boat – well maintained – shore staff a delight to deal with. Would highly recommend.

I was very pleased with the overall condition of the boat. Given the success in placing it on charter I expected to see some wear and tear to the interior and in general. However it looked great and I was really pleased!

Leopard 39 : Dual Flyer, October 2012:  Mr and Misses Hodges

Our sailing vacation on “Great Adventure” far exceeded our expectations! It was a trip we will never forget. The sun, the sailing, the beauty of the BVI are exquisite. Beyond compare, however, was our boat and crew.

“Great Adventure” is gorgeous, new, perfectly maintained and so, so comfortable. Beautifully decorated, spacious and full of amenities – the cabins were lovely, indoor and outdoor spaces welcoming and beautifully designed. We were six guests plus the crew and for seven days we never felt cramped.

The real bonus on this trip, however, was the crew! Catherine and Grayson are the perfect hosts. They are warm and gracious and top notch at their respective ship duties. Grayson is an extremely skilled sailor, knowledgable about the area, and eager to show us the best of the BVI while tailoring the ports of call to our interests. Every meal prepared by Kat was five star. Everything prepared with fresh ingredients, grilled to perfection, the menu varied and every morsel plentiful and delicious. A dream vacation for sure. Thank you for matching us up with this boat, it could not have been a more perfect week.

Sharon and Warren Clark, “Great Adventure” Lagoon 450 catamaran, Feb 2015

Just wanted to send you a quick note of appreciation for letting us take Dolphin Dance for the last two weeks. My crew and I had a delightful time and were thoroughly impressed with your operation. In the Caribbean, we had sailed the BVI previously, but never St. Lucia, the Grenadines, or Grenada. After consulting with the rest of the crew, I think we’re keen to possibly make a return trip in the future and if so would love to work with you again.

David Walworth, “Fly Bye” Lagoon 440 Catamaran, July 2016 St Vincent & the Grenadines.

We have had the pleasure of 14 other bareboat charters in the BVI, and none had such a trouble- free and hassle- free boat and staff as your operation at Nanny Cay. No boat problems, no rig problems, no broken fan belts, no valves frozen, and no mesquitos on board!! What a delight! The anamometer even worked and the auto pilot let us hold our heading. Our next charter might be in the Grenadines, and we will be looking for your operation in that area.

You have earned another customer who visits frequently.

Thanks for your attention to details!! It makes the difference!

We really enjoyed our trip aboard Mimbaw.  Bastiaan was a very experienced, knowledgeable and confident Captain which made it really relaxing for us. We felt very well taken care of by both Bastiaan and Christina.

Bastiaan was energetic, accommodating and fun.  We had a great adventure with a nice mix of time playing on the water and time ashore.  Bastiian was flexible with the schedule and activities. The diving was fun and super affordable.  Christina was sweet, fun and an experienced sailor.  Her meals were tasty, healthy and creative.  Mimbaw is a great boat for an active group.

A year has passed since we were your guests last time. This year we have not planned for any mid winter sailing in warmer waters. We hope still to have some years to come and sail in your waters and introduce our son and daughter with partners and grandchildren to Caribbean.

Thinking of you and wishing you a MERRY CHRISTMAS & PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!

I just wanted to send a quick email praising Giles for making our Charter fantastic. He was professional, efficient, and friendly. We expect little issues to go wrong on a sailboat…it was great to have Giles ready to fix things and ensure the crew was happy on our trip (a very important part of a return trip). We used Moorings for our first charter and were very disappointed. Horizon was night and day better.

Thanks!

I just wanted to thank everyone at Horizon Yacht Charters for another wonderful charter this year. Your crew and staff were very helpful in all facets of our charter from the planning, arranging taxis, expediting provisions, confirming ferry times and locations, as well as quickly replacing our lost boat hook!  Your staff is always friendly, courteous and very efficient. Swift Sally, was clean and well maintained. She was in great shape when we went aboard!

Thank you again! We hope to see you again for our next charter to the BVI!

Trish Greene, “Swift Sally”, March 2016

“Maple Cookie” Fountaine Pajot, Helia) was by far and above the best yacht we have chartered over the past 12 years!

The layout for sailing, winches, getting around the exterior, the interior salon and cabins was pretty much perfect. Lines were all clearly labeled, (I usually bring my own tape and markers) so took very little time for the crew to learn the system. The elect 2 speed winch was perfect! Reef was fast set up for and easy to use. The dingy was larger and had a motor that we could actually get someplace fast, thanks so much since that is always a concern with us.

The cabin ventilation was the best of any other charter. No-one had any problems and we didn’t even need the A.C. Another best of, the refrigeration and freezer. First time we didn’t waste food. Fridges were large and kept the food fresh the entire 8 nights and freezer kept all the ice frozen! That’s a first!

The final best of is I did not have to fix anything! Nada, First time I didn’t spend hours fixing a water pump, wiring, lines, loose bolts, or something. Overall, I can’t think of anything negative. We had no problems and everyone on-board agreed this was one of the best charters we have had to date.

Thanks to Everyone on the staff for their help on every minute detail!

Susanne and I chartered Scallywag, a Bavaria 33, from 03/12 through 03/19, for a bareboat cruise out of Tortola and throughout the British Virgin Islands. This was our first charter through Horizon, having used other charter companies in the past.

From beginning to end, the staff at Horizon made sure there were no problems and that our expectations were met. That type of service and attitude will cause us to be repeat customers, either at that base or elsewhere in the Caribbean.

James & Nicole Dury, “Mucho Gusto” Lagoon 410, Grenada Dec 2015.

Returned home last week after a 10 day charter, my second experience with HYC and my first on a catamaran. We had a crew of 6 and a skipper, Shaun Tarr – highly recommended. As he put it, he was there to keep us safe; teach me to sail the cat and to do what I did not want to do. Sailing a cat is quite different from a monohull and this is an incredible yacht.
Once again, I was very favorably impressed with the professional service provided by Horizon.

We all agree that our experience with HYC in Grenada will bring us back.

John Murphy, “Marine Venus” Leopard 46, October 2015, Grenada

Dear Jackie & Al,

A year has passed since we were your guests last time. This year we have not planned for any mid winter sailing in warmer waters. We hope still to have some years to come and sail in your waters and introduce our son and daughter with partners and grandchildren to Caribbean.

Thinking of you and wishing you a MERRY CHRISTMAS & PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!

I just wanted to send a quick email praising Giles for making our Charter fantastic. He was professional, efficient, and friendly. We expect little issues to go wrong on a sailboat…it was great to have Giles ready to fix things and ensure the crew was happy on our trip (a very important part of a return trip). We used Moorings for our first charter and were very disappointed. Horizon was night and day better.

Thanks!

We have had the pleasure of 14 other bareboat charters in the BVI, and none had such a trouble- free and hassle- free boat and staff as your operation at Nanny Cay. No boat problems, no rig problems, no broken fan belts, no valves frozen, and no mesquitos on board!! What a delight! The anamometer even worked and the auto pilot let us hold our heading. Our next charter might be in the Grenadines, and we will be looking for your operation in that area.

You have earned another customer who visits frequently.

Thanks for your attention to details!! It makes the difference!

Thanks Horizon Yacht Charters! We had a wonderful vacation during the Easter holidays on Nana… Great to be back after a 16 year gap.

Stephen Davis, Bavaria 45 “Nana”, April 2016, British Virgin Islands

Rod was extremely thorough in both his chart briefing and his detailed review of all the systems of the boat. We very much appreciated his advice on great stops to visit.

The boat was a joy to sail and all the equipment was in great condition.

Ian & Julie, Bavaria 41 (2 Cabins) “TOES “with Horizon Yacht Charters – Nanny Cay, Tortola, BVI, March 2016.

I just wanted to thank everyone at Horizon Yacht Charters for another wonderful charter this year. Your crew and staff were very helpful in all facets of our charter from the planning, arranging taxis, expediting provisions, confirming ferry times and locations, as well as quickly replacing our lost boat hook!  Your staff is always friendly, courteous and very efficient. Swift Sally, was clean and well maintained. She was in great shape when we went aboard!

Thank you again! We hope to see you again for our next charter to the BVI!

Trish Greene, “Swift Sally”, March 2016

“Maple Cookie” Fountaine Pajot, Helia) was by far and above the best yacht we have chartered over the past 12 years!

The layout for sailing, winches, getting around the exterior, the interior salon and cabins was pretty much perfect. Lines were all clearly labeled, (I usually bring my own tape and markers) so took very little time for the crew to learn the system. The elect 2 speed winch was perfect! Reef was fast set up for and easy to use. The dingy was larger and had a motor that we could actually get someplace fast, thanks so much since that is always a concern with us.

The cabin ventilation was the best of any other charter. No-one had any problems and we didn’t even need the A.C. Another best of, the refrigeration and freezer. First time we didn’t waste food. Fridges were large and kept the food fresh the entire 8 nights and freezer kept all the ice frozen! That’s a first!

The final best of is I did not have to fix anything! Nada, First time I didn’t spend hours fixing a water pump, wiring, lines, loose bolts, or something. Overall, I can’t think of anything negative. We had no problems and everyone on-board agreed this was one of the best charters we have had to date.

Thanks to Everyone on the staff for their help on every minute detail!

Susanne and I chartered Scallywag, a Bavaria 33, from 03/12 through 03/19, for a bareboat cruise out of Tortola and throughout the British Virgin Islands. This was our first charter through Horizon, having used other charter companies in the past.

From beginning to end, the staff at Horizon made sure there were no problems and that our expectations were met. That type of service and attitude will cause us to be repeat customers, either at that base or elsewhere in the Caribbean.

Our trip with Peter and Sylvie was amazing.  They are extremely attentive and gracious hosts and put together a wonderful week.  Our family really enjoyed ourselves and came away with lots of great memories.  The meals were incredible, the sailing awesome and the snorkelling a blast.   A trip worth repeating!

Michael Bragg, “Jambalaya” Carriacou Schooner 73, March 2016, Grenada

James & Nicole Dury, “Mucho Gusto” Lagoon 410, Grenada Dec 2015.

Returned home last week after a 10 day charter, my second experience with HYC and my first on a catamaran. We had a crew of 6 and a skipper, Shaun Tarr – highly recommended. As he put it, he was there to keep us safe; teach me to sail the cat and to do what I did not want to do. Sailing a cat is quite different from a monohull and this is an incredible yacht.
Once again, I was very favorably impressed with the professional service provided by Horizon.

We all agree that our experience with HYC in Grenada will bring us back.

John Murphy, “Marine Venus” Leopard 46, October 2015, Grenada

Great trip – best charter ever!

St Vincent & the Grenadines

Just wanted to send you a quick note of appreciation for letting us take Dolphin Dance for the last two weeks. My crew and I had a delightful time and were thoroughly impressed with your operation. In the Caribbean, we had sailed the BVI previously, but never St. Lucia, the Grenadines, or Grenada. After consulting with the rest of the crew, I think we’re keen to possibly make a return trip in the future and if so would love to work with you again.

Robert Shields, Dolphin Dance – Jeanneau 45, August 20 – September 3 2016, St Lucia to Grenada

Jacqui was very easy to work with for the reservation process. Lisa was great with immigration and customs in St Vincent. Staff in Grenada very helpful – would definitely recommend!

David Walworth, “Fly Bye” Lagoon 440 Catamaran, July 2016 St Vincent & the Grenadines.

We recently returned from a fantastic sail in the Grenadines (from St-Vincent to Grenada).  The boat, a 45 foot Jeanneau (Dolphin Dance II) made it a very comfortable journey and we were lucky to have a fantastic local skipper – Collin Laborde.  This guy knows these islands very intimately, the best spots to anchor, and coached us in maneuvering our boat safely and comfortably.
 
We could also fish for fresh stuff right out of behind our cockpit and he prepared the fish and cooked with us.  We end up calling him “Captain Cook !!!”  
 
He was also very respectful of our intimacy and knew the places to shop for local fare or directly from fishermen.
 
We totally loved it and we will come back!
 
Michel and Renee, Dolphin Dance II, Jeanneau 45 DS, April-May 2016.

We greatly enjoyed our sail on Dolphin Dance and the service and support of yourself and all the Horizon staff.

We are certain this sail has been the best of all of our 8 or so Caribbean charters.  We met many local Vincentians and Grenadines on this trip, it’s one of the things we try to seek out, and that made this trip particularly special.  It’s something to feel one is leaving friends when returning from new places!

Kind Regards to you and all at Horizon

Greg and Lynda Jo, Jeanneau 45DS “Dolphin Dance II”, St Vincent & the Grenadines Feb/March 2016

I just want to let you know what a fabulous experience we had. All of us agreed that the trip was made even better with Collin as the captain. He certainly is a big asset for your company. I would recommend him to anyone that was a novice sailor or even a experience one. Again I cannot impress on you enough how great Collin was. Please let Lisa at Blue lagoon know. We did tell her, but we would like to also let you know what a great job she did.

John Pacyga, “Dolphin Dance” Jeanneau 45DS from Nov. 25th to Dec. 2nd 2015, St Vincent.

I was very pleased with the overall condition of the boat. Given the success in placing it on charter I expected to see some wear and tear to the interior and in general. However it looked great and I was really pleased!

We really enjoyed our trip aboard Mimbaw.  Bastiaan was a very experienced, knowledgeable and confident Captain which made it really relaxing for us. We felt very well taken care of by both Bastiaan and Christina.

Bastiaan was energetic, accommodating and fun.  We had a great adventure with a nice mix of time playing on the water and time ashore.  Bastiian was flexible with the schedule and activities. The diving was fun and super affordable.  Christina was sweet, fun and an experienced sailor.  Her meals were tasty, healthy and creative.  Mimbaw is a great boat for an active group.

I wanted to say that our experience with Horizon Yacht Charters St Maarten was absolutely perfect!  Eli is an over achieving workhorse!  Boat was in perfect working shape, weather was amazing and the brief stint with Stephan (capt) was a blast.  Great company, great people!

I was very pleased with the overall condition of the boat. Given the success in placing it on charter I expected to see some wear and tear to the interior and in general. However it looked great and I was really pleased!

We had a fabulous trip.  Thank you so much David for your good information and weather updates.  Please give his dog Spikey a pat for us, and we hope his trip back home to Trinidad for his sons wedding was enjoyable.  Also thanks again Ken Layton for taking care of the booking. You have lifetime customers here.

My wife and I came down on our honeymoon and had an incredible time. Lobsters / Fish, Pina coladas and sun. I highly recommend Horizon Yacht Charters St Maarten.
