Nautitech Fly 46 (2020) 'Luna'Gallery
The Fly 46 has proven incredibly popular for charter in the Caribbean, due to her immense outdoor living space; the “open” concept where sliding doors between the cockpit lounge and saloon merge both of them into one large living space. As well as the best-in-class Flybridge, where 10 can sit comfortably, with a table and cooler drawer for drinks under the helm seat. Her performance also remains best in class with an easily managed furling mainsail and furling, self-tacking jib, all controls are led to the helm position, with touch button electric winches.
As you step into Luna a forward-facing nav station and rear-facing galley conjoins the saloon to the cockpit for convivial cheffing. In both hulls, you’ll find 2 berths to comfortably sleep 4 people. Each cabin has its own head which can also be used as a wet head to shower in, however, there is also a separate centre shower unit which can be accessed from either head. All the heads on board are electric and there is air conditioning in the saloon and in every cabin. There are 2 Forepeak cabins on board. These can be accessed through a hatch on the deck or through a hatch in the forward cabins. There is a blind on both sides between the forepeak and forward cabins. The forepeak features mattresses large enough to sleep one person. They do not have their own head or air conditioning but the air conditioning units in the forward cabins are powerful enough to cool both cabins if the hatch between the two is left open.

Capt Dani is an outstanding captain and kept us informed, safe and made the trip awesome! She is a keeper!
Darrel Hearne, BVI, February 2021
A while back, some friends and I got to spend a week onboard the good ship Luna, a 46’ Nautitech catamaran, one of the boats in the Horizon Yacht Charters fleet. The experience was overwhelmingly positive, and I thought it fit to share my review of the boat, company and charter experience.
First, a bit about me – I have been operating charter vessels in the BVI for the past fifteen years, and spent several years working as a bareboat skipper – you hire a boat and you hire a captain. Suffice to say that I have chartered a multitude of different boats in the BVI, from many different charter companies.
My week onboard Luna was slightly different; it was myself and some good friends, just vacationing, so not a working week for me. Having been on board many bareboat charters in the past, my expectations were low. Bareboats tend to get a bit beaten up and look a bit tatty early on, in my experience – the result of credit card captains not taking the proper care of them, or the management company trying to cut corners in the maintenance. To say that I was pleasantly surprised is an understatement. The boat was pristine. Spotless inside and out, and none of the usual bareboat nicks and scratches I’ve come to expect. Understand that I run a high-end luxury crewed charter yacht these days, so I have high standards. I couldn’t find fault. At all. The cushions were immaculate. The towels and bedding new and lacked the usual bareboat mystery stains. The boat was impeccably maintained.
In addition, the boat was equipped way better than any other bareboat I have ever been on. Properly stocked with a good assortment of pots and pans, plates, glasses, cutlery etc – enough to actually cook a real meal, should you so desire. I’m used to a warped pan and maybe a broken spatula on board, but the owners of this boat had spared no expense and kitted her out properly. Fridge and freezer space galore – way more than we needed for the week. An ice maker on board, as well as (if you can believe it) a water maker. Oh, the luxury of hot uninterrupted showers. A/c was ice cold throughout.
Then I got to take her out and put her through her paces. I’d never sailed a Nautitech before – this version is the 46’ flybridge, featuring powered roller-furling in-mast mainsail, with a self-tacking jib. Fully rigged for solo sailing, this boat was an absolute joy to sail. Every line runs straight to the flybridge helm station, and I single-handed the sailing side of things the whole week. Easily. The self-tacking jib was an absolute eye-opener. Honestly, couldn’t be easier. As for electronics and nav equipment, she has everything you could possibly want onboard. Full disclosure here: she’s not a fast boat. She’s built for comfort and ease of use. The roller-furling main means no battens in the mainsail, and the self-tacking jib makes for a somewhat baggy bottom profile. This is not the boat to take racing. If you want to drift along in ease and comfort, though – I highly recommend it.
All in all, I give her a solid five-star rating, with two additional thumbs up. Great boat.
As for my dealings with Horizon Charter Yachts, all I can say is that they were extremely professional and competent. Definitely my best experience ever with a bareboat company. Emails were quickly replied to, information was given clearly and their manner was friendly and courteous throughout. Here again, I cannot find fault at all.
All in all, a great week on a great boat, from a great company. My sincerest thanks. We’ll be back for sure.

We had a great trip. Horizon YC’s offers great value, great service.

Find Your Rate Check out our special offers
Did you know Horizon’s charters start and finish at noon? This means we can get you out sailing your first afternoon after your briefings – remember to watch your video briefings to speed up your check out! At the end of your trip, you sail back to Nanny Cay to refuel and debrief before your noon departure. This gives you a full 6 nights/7 days chartering around our beautiful islands, unlike some companies that start at 5pm, meaning you will have to sleepaboard* at the docks, and then finish at 10am, again meaning you will probably have to stay overnight on the docks the night before you leave to fly home.
*If available, a sleep aboard can be added the night before your charter start for a small supplement, boarding your yacht after 5pm.
Weekly rates (full 7 days / 6 nights) are listed above as daily rates. Charters start and finish at noon. Our minimum charter duration requirement is 5 nights.

Super Tender your Vacation with Horizon Yacht Charters!
Licensed for 6 persons, this 15ft RIB with 60HP Yamaha outboard will get you and your crew to snorkelling spots and the beach in style and comfort.
Make your charter yacht vacation a breeze – enjoy the comfort of being able to tie up your yacht for the night and then continue exploring the surrounding bays! You can pick up your mooring ball at the Bight and then head to the Indians or the Caves for a snorkel. If you visit the Dogs, there’s no need to choose only one snorkel spot for your lunch stop, zip around them all! A swim ladder makes boarding easy from the water.
For popular spots where it’s trickier to find a mooring, the RIB is the perfect alternative. Settle into Great Harbour, Jost Van Dyke for the night and then take the RIB to White Bay for the afternoon to enjoy painkillers without the hassle of finding a mooring ball or having to move your yacht for the night.
The North Sound boasts a selection of some of the best dining options in the BVI. There’s no need to settle for only one spot when you have the RIB. Pick up provisions from Leverick Bay, enjoy the plunge pool at Nova in Deep Bay, and then zip back to the sound for sundowners at Saba Rock before enjoying dinner at The Bitter End.
If you have a mix of snorkelers, beachgoers, shoppers and sailors onboard then give your group flexibility by taking the standard dinghy included in your charter as well. This will also remove the need to make multiple dinghy trips ashore for larger groups.
