    We LOVED everything about the boat

    "We did a bareboat charter on a MarineMax 443. With 6 adults and two kids 12 and 9. We LOVED everything about the boat including all the help from MarineMax pre-trip and during. Highly recommend Tammy Worthing with MarineMax! She was phenomenal! Fantastic service and sooo much space on the boat to enjoy! We stayed onboard the boat the night before which I highly recommend! We got our provisions as soon as we arrived that night! Although it was a lot all at once. Check-in, put away clothes, provisions, etc it was so nice to have it done and ready to roll. They had us out of there by 9:30 am the next morning!!"

    A flawless experience with MarineMax!

    "We are experienced lake boaters but this was our first time chartering a power catamaran. Knowing that boats (even well-maintained boats) have breakdowns, my main concern was finding a company that had a positive history of newer well-maintained boats and quick response times in the event of trouble. We are so glad we chose MarineMax! The vessel was less than one year old and we didn't have a single mechanical issue during our week in the BVI. Maggie, our sales consultant, gave the personal touch during the months leading up to our trip - making sure every single detail was taken care of. Every person we encountered at the base was very hospitable. Great boat briefing, a friendly skipper who took us out to get us oriented for a couple of hours, and a no-fuss departure. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone!" - Cole C.

    Out of all the charter companies we’ve used, MarineMax does the best job by far.

    "Our 6th trip to BVI and the second with MarineMax. The staff at Nanny Cay are wonderful, with excellent communication and service. They all treated us like special guests, and island time was not a phrase I would use to describe their responsiveness, to the contrary they were quick and acted with sincere care and concern for our satisfaction. We loved the MarineMax 443. Great boat and amenities. Everything worked well and we had no surprises. Our vacation planner was easy to book with and followed up after our trip. All in all, I would highly recommend MarineMax Vacations for any BVI charter."

    The beautiful waters of the BVI made it feel like a DREAM.

    "This was a must-do "Bucket List" activity for me for almost 20 years. You must be an experienced boater and I am. MarineMax was truly unbelievably GREAT. The boat exceeded my highest expectation and was equipped magnificently.

    I highly recommend MarineMax for their quality of yachts, their customer service, and their commitment to your dream vacation. I will be back."

    A great week on Celtic Cat one of MarineMax's power catamarans.

    "Dunbar, our captain, was excellent. He got us safely around and always had a smile. The boat was in great shape and very clean. It was a family trip and no one was ready to leave. We had excellent weather and fairly rough seas one day. The boat handled the waves easily. I would definitely recommend this for a truly wonderful experience. #MarineMaxVacations"

    Our group trip experience ever!

    "Our vacation planner was a master trip coordinator that made the process easy. Her vast experience with this process is invaluable. We will experience this vacation again in the future and MarineMax will be our first call.
    The MarineMax 545 is an amazing craft. We had 4 couples plus a hired captain and it was incredibly comfortable. Cooking onboard is an awesome part of the adventure, with plenty of space and refrigeration. The number of incredible stops at your disposal means you can take this trip multiple times and see something different each trip. Can't wait to return!"

    "Start with the equipment, and end with the people. Both were amazing but the people are the ultimate differentiator at MarineMax. The boats were perfect. Normal issues here and there, but if you're a boater you expect an occasional glitch. Any issues were immediately addressed. And as said, there were very few, and all were minor. The layouts of both the MarineMax 443 and MarineMax 545 are well thought out, and easy for cruising, entertaining, and sleeping. Love these Aquilas.

    We are already booked for next year and are looking into adding a trip or two between now and then. This is entirely due to the awesome experience provided by these awesome people. Thank you so much and looking forward to the next visit!"

    Our first bareboat charter in the BVI was amazing!

    "The team at MarineMax Vacations did an excellent job for us from start to finish. Mallory helped us for nearly two years during the pandemic to make our trip a reality. When we finally got to Tortola in October '23, the MarineMax staff was extremely helpful in getting us set up on our boat. We rented the MarineMax 484 and we were extremely impressed with the size, quality, and cleanliness of the boat. During our 6 day trip, we toured many of the islands. The boat ran great. We did have one or two mechanical problems, which is common with any boat. I was most impressed with MarineMax and its ability to quickly dispatch technicians to us to resolve our issues. Their service recovery was second to none. Will definitely consider MarineMax as our first choice for our next trip!"

    Everything on our 8-Day BVI Charter with MarineMax went to plan.

    "The MarineMax staff are excellent to work with and made sure we had everything we needed before we left the dock. This is my second BVI Bare-Boat Charter with MarineMax and for the second time, we had no issues with the boat or transportation to/from the MarineMax base. Thanks!"

  • Awesome boating experience!!

    "We chartered a powercat for a week from MarineMax at Nanny Cay. Our planner from MarineMax did a fantastic job of helping us through the entire process and planning the trip. There is a considerable amount of preparation, so start early! The MarineMax Vacations team can give you tips and ideas on how to make everything go smoothly. Our boat was a MarineMax 443 and there was plenty of space and privacy for 6 adults. The boat looked like new and everything worked well. The Nanny Cay crew was very helpful and the boat checkout was thorough. If you're not comfortable driving a boat this size in the marina, they will drive it in and out for you. We spent the extra money on the premium Boaty Ball app. For late July, we probably could have gotten by without it, but we were able to get our choice of mooring buoys every day (we picked the front row for the best comfort). Except for the wind (it blew 15-20 knots the entire week) it was a great week on the water!!"
