The British Virgin Islands Ports Authority (BVIPA) is offering Superyacht dockage at their newly expanded Road Town cruise pier in a dedicated area called Serenity Moorings.
Serenity Moorings is centrally located in the British Virgin Islands in Road Town, Tortola; the
logistical hub of the BVI. Docking at Serenity Moorings, just outside the entrance to Village Cay
and adjacent to the cruise pier, provides convenient access to fuel, provisions, supplies, service
providers, shopping and restaurants. Serenity Moorings is an excellent option for short visits,
turnarounds between charters, or to explore Tortola.
Serenity Moorings can accommodate two yachts with a maximum length of 230 feet, with unlimited beam, in over 12 feet of water. The basin is protected by a 200 foot break wall and
offers one berth with a 125 foot long, 30 foot wide finger pier. The second berth requires stern-to
mooring with no finger pier, but there is plenty of room for anchoring in the traditional
Mediterranean style. The entire property is ISPS compliant, secured with electronic gates and manned by security guards 24-hours a day. There is potable water available on the docks,
wireless internet, and fueling available through local fuel suppliers.
The BVIPA is encouraging yachts wishing to secure a berth to work with local agents, Shore Side Yacht Services or Island Shipping & Trading Co., for reservations and logistics during their stay at
Serenity Moorings provides the only docking option for yachts greater than 200 feet in Tortola and adds to the expanding dockage options for Superyachts in the BVI. The BVIPA expects
increased occupancy in the weeks leading up the Superyacht Rendezvous schedule for March
14-17, 2012 at the newly opened YCCS Marina in Virgin Gorda.
Touted as the “Sailing Capital of the Caribbean” the BVI also ranked among the top 10
Superyacht playgrounds in the world according to the January 2011 publication of Main Sail by
