The more the merrier when it comes to boats in the Caribbean and regional participation in regattas. That’s one reason why BVI Yacht Sales, one of the leading Caribbean yacht brokerages, is signing on as a sponsor for this year’s Antigua Sailing Week (ASW).

“Facilitation of yacht ownership in the Caribbean is an important strategy in maintaining sailing event relevance and increasing the pool of participants for regattas,” says Rana Jamila-Lewis, Manager of ASW. “Having the sponsorship of BVI Yacht Sales helps raise the visibility of the event to a regional audience who are definitely interested in sailing, which makes for a smooth transition to racing and chasing.”

BVI Yacht Sales, headquartered at Nanny Cay Marina, in Tortola, BVI, has, for more than the past decade, consistently sold more boats around the Caribbean than any other brokerage based on soldboats.com data according to the company.

“With our new ownership settling in after the long recovery period following Hurricane Irma and then the COVID pandemic, we are finally able to proceed with plans to offer a greater level of service to the other major yachting hubs in the region such as Antigua & Barbuda and Grenada, which are popular with private yacht owners who use their boats themselves,” says Brian Duff, managing partner. “Our clients are generally owners of sailing yachts 40- to 70-foot in length and using their boats for a portion of the year each season. Having agents in many islands full time will enable us to offer a more personal service with a better ‘on the ground knowledge’ of the ins and outs of each region than ever before.  We are, after all, ‘the informative brokers!’”
