Tony Naets, 12/9-12/19/21- Astrea 42 "Brown Eyed Girl" — Fountaine Pajot Astréa 42 (2022) 'Pegasus'
Now that we made it back and are (more or less) over our jetlag, a quick word to thank you and the Horizon team for their contributions to a wonderful trip, with special kudos to Jalon for his guidance and patience and to Jon for quickly repairing the only issue with the boat.
As everyone will tell you, it is cold here, and grey and we miss it…. and therefore WE WILL BE BACK!
Our best wishes for 2022 and have a great season.
Chuck Gruber, Dec 2021 — Jeanneau 490 (2019) 'Casbah II'
Last week my family and I had the opportunity to spend a week sailing the BVI on the Casbah II. We have been chartering with Horizon for over 20 years and you guys just seem to get better every time.
The complexity of traveling internationally via planes and ferry’s is at an all time high but the help, advice and flexibility of your office staff made that manageable. Your boat descriptions and providing the manual in advance helped us get familiar with the boat and make sure we brought just want we needed. The tight check-in and check-out schedule we had to allow maximum boat time in light of the reduced travel options worked flawlessly.
Again, we were on the Casbah II and, with the high winds and seas last week, we got to see all she has to offer. Just great sailing for which the BVI is well known. You guys are just the best.
I’d say don’t change and you’re the best and the best doesn’t stand still. I know you will come up with new ways to make our next charter even better. We can’t wait for that time.
Enjoy the Holidays and our family wishes yours a very prosperous and safe 2022.
James Hudson , BVI 12/10/2021 — Nautitech Fly 46 (2020) 'Luna'
We had a great trip. Horizon YC’s offers great value, great service.
Reese Bullen , BVI, 12 Dec 2021 — Sun Odyssey 490 (2020) 'Cosette II'
Thanks Horizon, That was a great charter.
Ron Goldey, St Vincent 8 Nov 2021 — New Fountaine Pajot Elba 45 (2020) 'Batamaran'
The yacht was extremely clean and shipshape, and the sailing was excellent. We managed to get in two 50 NM days under sail between St. Vincent and Petit St. Vincent, and Batamaran averaged 7-8 knots, with an exhilarating 12.5 knots on a run during a short squall. All in all, a great vacation!
Jeff Hart, BVI, 8th July 2021 — Nautitech Open 40 Catamaran (2016) 'Double Expresso'
The stability while sailing and open cockpit, both for sailing and mooring, were excellent and precisely the type of sailing my family wanted while in the BVI. I absolutely will charter a cat again from Horizon.
March 2021, March 2021 — Fountaine Pajot 50 (2018) 'Katrina'
“This was our very first charter on a catamaran. It was well worth the wait! The crew was amazing! So hospitable and accommodating. Tim cooked the best meals. We especially loved the filet/mashed potatoes, pad thai and the yummy poke bowl.
This was the perfect setting to wind down and be with family. We were totally spoiled. Can’t say enough about Heather and Tim! We will be back!!
Sara and Darryl, May 2021 — Helia 44 Quatuor (2018) 'Altair'
Hello Horizon BVI team,
Just wanted to reach out and thank you again for everything! Although it was a little different this time around we made it through all the hoops and had an amazing time! We missed spending time person to person with you ladies in the office but all was handled in such an organized manner! Jalon and Henry were very helpful in meeting our last-minute requests! We will be back!! Take care and wishing for everyone around the world that we soon put this pandemic behind us and get back to normal! Keep the vaccinations going!
Until next time!
Kurt Prinslow, May 2021, BVI — Bavaria 34 (2017) 'Maverick'
We found the Horizon staff very helpful and courteous in preparation for our charter and during our charter. Especially when it came to manoeuvring through the BVI government’s testing regime. Courtney really helped out in arranging the Day 4 on Jost Van Dyke.
The same can be said of the people of the BVI’s as they embrace and encourage visitors back to the islands. A special “shout out” to the nurse at the Jost Van Dyke clinic and her help in processing our exit tests. Also, the constable/police officer on Jost Van Dyke was extremely patient and helpful when we turned in our government-issued tracking equipment.
We were glad we returned to the BVI’s and experienced the islands and people during this rare moment in history.
We will be in touch about a return charter to the BVI’s or other Horizon Yacht Charter bases
May 2021, May 2021 — Fountaine Pajot 50 (2018) 'Katrina'
6 days on Katrina was a bucket trip of a life time!! Captain Heather and Chef/First Mate Jessica quickly became our friends. We can’t stop talking about our trip to our friends and family. They file your lead…as much or as little activity as you like. From snorkeling with turtles at Maho to breath taking sunsets, we were totally captivated with the beauty of St. John. With Captain Heather’s knowledge of the area we were able to experience pieces of St. John unreachable by land. We can’t say enough about the food. In fact, we are showing more pictures of our meals than anything. We are totally blown away with the attention to detail and preparation to provision this trip prior to heading out. We ended our trip with a private concert by After Irma on the back of our boat, perfect ending to a trip of a lifetime. If you are considering a trip like this, Katrina is your destination!!
