Tandem charters are becoming very popular these days for large groups; we would like to advise our clients that tandem charters on La Manguita and Sea Boss offer an exciting option for cruising the BVI.
Tandem charters for larger groups are defined as two or more boats that travel together, anchor or moor together and basically act as a unit. It is easier to charter two similar vessels so that the accommodations and layout are also similar and no one feels “short-changed” by getting an older or different yacht.
The twin Horizon 60′ foot powercats Sea Boss and La Manguita are currently based in the BVIs and offer a unique opportunity for accommodating larger groups (up to 12 guests) They have just completed their first tandem charter, which worked out very well.
They ended up booking both powercats at far less than it would cost them for a megayacht, and gained a lot more flexibility – the boats could split up during the day if, for example, the guys wanted to go fishing and the girls wanted to go to the spa. They rafted up at night, which worked out very well.
The boats are also very similar in furnishings and equipment specifications, which makes them ideal for tandem charters.
If you do have a requirement for ten or twelve passengers, this may be a good option for you. Both boats will be in the BVIs through the season, after which time La Manguita will head up to the Bahamas, and Sea Boss will remain in the BVIs for the summer.
