CYOA has focused solely on Virgin Island’s charter vacations for over 30 years, earning us a reputation of excellence in the charter industry and with our customers. We are small by choice, and we are proud to offer highly personalized service. Our yachts are first class. Our friendly crew is made up of experienced sailors who know the islands, and who are experts at boat handling and maintenance. We love sailing and people, and it shows. Our goal is to help you experience the vacation of a lifetime.
Our People – Everyone at CYOA lives in the Virgin Islands. We have come from many different walks of life and decided that this is the place to be. Some of us live on land, and some of us live on our own boats. Our commitment to friendly, professional service ensures that your Virgin Island’s vacation is the best one ever.
Our Boats – CYOA charters top-quality boats from some of the best names in the business. Our fleet of well-maintained boats is available for bareboat or skippered charters. Our rates are reasonable year round and we offer regular specials that make it even easier to vacation in the Virgins.
Our Place In The Sun – CYOA has a special location on the west side of the island of St. Thomas in an historic community called Frenchtown. Frenchtown is on the west side of the main harbor of Charlotte Amalie, the capitol city of the USVI. Boaters are always welcome here, as boats and fishing are a part of life for many Frenchtown residents.
Our fleet is based in the Frenchtown Harbor Marina, a small, modern marina that also hosts private and visiting yachts. Marina facilities include clean rest rooms with hot and cold water and showers, an ice machine, neighborhood laundromat, convenience store, post office and bank a short walk away.
Your Place For Fun – CYOA’s charter base is less than 10 minutes away from the St. Thomas International airport so you’ll spend less time commuting and more time on the water! Several major airlines offer jet service from the states directly to St. Thomas. Most of our guests enjoy their first night dockside, surrounded by the sparkle and lights of downtown, festive party boats and the grand cruise ships. The next morning, after checkout, you’ll cruise off to explore the beauty of the Virgin Islands. Our central location gives you great access to the US, British and Spanish Virgin Islands.
While you’re at the marina, get acquainted with island life by dining at one of the great restaurants in our neighborhood, or meet the locals at an open-air pub, enjoy a gourmet menu, a champagne and wine bar, deli, coffee shop or pizza. A short, safe walk to downtown Charlotte Amalie is fun for duty-free shopping, dining or browsing. It is a photogenic town with many historic buildings and a great variety of stores. You’ll find fine jewelry, perfumes, cameras, electronic equipment and much more.
Vacation with your new friends at CYOA to shorten your commute, enjoy more cruising time at great rates, and benefit from the best access to all the Virgin Islands. We look forward to your visit!
