IGY Marinas is offering exceptionally low berthing rates of $1 per foot per day Nov. 3-18 to those who book in advance for the USVI Charter Yacht Show. There also will be a reduced rate on fuel during those dates for registered yacht show vessels.

This year’s charter show takes place Nov. 10-13 at IGY Marinas’ Yacht Haven Grande on St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. Afterward, show vessels can also get reduced berthing rates until Dec. 18 at IGY’s American Yacht Harbor on St. Thomas, Simpson Bay Marina and The Yacht Club at Isle de Sol on St. Maarten, and IGY’s Rodney Bay Marina on St. Lucia.

According to boat show organizers, a dedicated, air-conditioned Broker’s Business Lounge with wi-fi and refreshments will be available at the marina throughout the show. Dolphin Water Taxi will offer direct service Nov. 10-11 from Nanny Cay Marina on Tortola to Yacht Haven Grande, leaving at 7:30 a.m. from the BVI. Discounts on St. Thomas accommodations are available at the Emerald Beach Resort and Lindbergh Bay Hotel & Villas, with transport to Yacht Haven Grande morning and night by VI Best Taxi.

“I have really seen a rebirth of the St. Thomas yacht charter industry over the past few years with many high-quality charter yachts choosing to base there,” stated Trish Cronan, president of the Charter Yacht Brokers Association International. “They already have a lineup of some exceptional yachts. I think that every broker who books Virgin Islands business should make this show a priority this year.”
