Bareboat Yacht Charters in the U.S. Virgin Islands

Our fleet of 32′ to 50′ yachts, designed and constructed by Island Packet Yachts, Tartan Yachts, and Blue Jacket are known for their excellent quality of construction and commodious interiors. We take pride in the unique niche we have established in the bareboat industry primarily guided by the quality of our boats, our personal attention and the ideal fleet location in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Unequaled attention to detail

Unlike many other larger bareboat companies whose offices and owners are stateside, IYC owners Skip and Andrea King head a full staff of on island marine industry professionals.  This means that the same people who answer your initial inquiry will also be the same greeting you upon your arrival to board your yacht, allowing for a great deal of accountability for our product from the start.


Ideal location

Our Red Hook location is at what we like to call “the front door” to the world’s best cruising ground. We are just a 45 minute sail to St. John, USVI, a 1.5 hour sail to the BVI and 6 hour sail to St. Croix USVI and the Spanish Virgins of Culebra and Vieques.

Nearby conveniences

Provisioning is available and reasonably priced at Moe’s Market, an excellent, full service market located directly across the street from our IYC base.  Also conveniently located in Red Hook are two banks with ATM’s, a postal service, a pharmacy, a full service medical center, and many excellent restaurants.

Our Fleet of Bareboats

Our boats range in size from 32′ to 50′. We feature Island Packet Yachts, Tartan Yachts and Blue Jacket Yachts, some of the finest yachts available for bareboat charter today. Renowned for their excellent quality of construction and commodious interiors, Island Packets, Tartan and Blue Jacket prove time and again why they are the leaders in the manufacture of production built sailing yachts.
