Following the opening of the Dream Yacht Charter base in Tortola on November 1, the company's first bareboat charter customers returned to the British Virgin Islands (BVIs) this week after Hurricane Irma. Dream Yacht Charter founder, Loic Bonnet, said: “It’s impressive how the people of the areas impacted by hurricanes this season have worked so hard in the last six weeks to rebuild, recover and encourage visitors to return to what are still beautiful cruising grounds.
“Our hearts are with the Caribbean and we’re doing everything we can to promote the region as a charter destination for the rest of 2017 and 2018 now that it is open for business. It’s clear that visitors will get a Caribbean welcome they will never forget in return for supporting the region in their time of need.”
For those planning BVI charters in the next few months, the company has put together an itinerary guide post-Irma with their friends who crew the Helia 44 Allende. Allende will also be featured at the 36th annual BVI Crewed Yacht Show in Nanny Cay alongside Lagoon 62 Rev2Mer this week, further underpinning that the BVIs are recovering and back open for business.
