With more than 10 guests (12 with families) it is very hard to fit everybody on one crewed yacht. Many of our clients with larger groups choose a tandem yacht charter instead, which means two or more yachts are chartered together throughout the week. These yachts will sail together, anchor within a short distance of one another, and provide some casual get-togethers throughout the charter week, based on your preference.
On tandem charters, the yachts will sail the same itinerary and can “race” with each other to get to the next anchorage. This truly allows for double the fun! At stops, guests can switch yachts to enjoy all of the amenities of both vessels. Two chefs, mean a wider variety of delicious cuisine and 2 charter yachts mean double the available water toys and sports.Tandem charters allow you even one more option for customizing your vacation.
Perhaps the group would like to split up for the day, allowing the women to head out shopping before sunbathing on one of the BVI’s famous white sand beaches. Meanwhile, they men may choose to do some extra sailing or watersports. The group can meet back up for dinner and choose where to eat: For the adults to dine on one boat while the children gather for a kids-only menu on the other yacht.
Most yachts are little companies on their own, so most likely you will be chartering 2 or more yachts that have different owners and have their own budget. It is important to divide all the costs equally between the yachts when on a tandem charter. The crew will help you with this and let you know what is and is not possible.
Large groups enjoy the options that are only available to them on tandem charters, where twice the fun ensures that your vacation is an adventure to remember!
