To our Valued Customers: It is impossible to believe that our small island has been hit by a second Cat 5 hurricane. Thankfully, the wind from Maria was a bit less than IRMA but the massive amount of water and wind from this storm poured fuel on the fire of the catastrophic damage we received from IRMA on 9/6/17. Needless to say, we have been unable to return to the territory since Irma hit. There is no definitive date for the reopening of the St Thomas, St Croix or Puerto Rico airports. Until Skip and I can fly in to St Thomas, see the damage to our fleet and start the recovery and repair process, it is impossible for us to know when we can have vessels up and running for the upcoming charter season. If any of you know of a relief jet or have anyone going to the VI on a private plane, we are looking for a ride in for Skip.
We ask that you continue to be patient while we move through this process. If you have a future charter with Island Yachts and we cannot fulfill the booking dates, we ask that you allow us to move your charter to another date when we can have the vessel ready for you. This is our first choice and the healthiest option for Island Yachts during this very trying time.
Our phone numbers are still down and my phone is a VI number and many people have expressed the inability to get through. The best way to reach me is by e-mail to: email@example.com or by trying my cell at (340) 344-2143.
To make donations to the USVI recovery effort, go to the Island Yachts Facebook page for updates on the various relief funds that will go directly to the people of the Virgin Islands.
Please keep the people of the USVI, Puerto Rico and all the areas effected by this years chain of dangerous storms in your prayers.
