Dream Yacht ChartersWe’re pleased to announce the opening of our new Caribbean base at Compass Point Marina, St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands, in partnership with Virgin Islands Yacht Charters.

Compass Point Marina, located in the East End’s well-protected Benner Bay, is the only legitimate hurricane hole in the entire Virgin Islands, which makes for a wonderfully quiet and calm overnight for our charter guests. This quaint marina is set away from the hustle and bustle of the cruise ship traffic of St. Thomas and is just five minutes from the Red Hook area. The marina features the Dive Bar, a popular, local hangout, and a store. 

Customers will be able to choose from monohulls and catamarans for bareboat and skippered yacht charters. The USVI fleet includes a new Bali 5.4 and Soana 47, both with watermaker and air conditioning. Those looking for the ultimate experience can enjoy our all-inclusive crewed packages on luxury catamarans. 

The USVIs consists of three main islands, St. Thomas, St. Croix and St. John, which offers some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Many use the USVIs as a jump-off point for the British Virgin Islands and the customs process is simple and easy to do. 

Dream Yacht Charter Founder and President, Loïc Bonnet, said: “St. Thomas is an important base for us in the Caribbean and we welcome the new partnership. The natural splendor of the USVIs is often overlooked but now guests can experience this special part of the world, as well as the BVIs.”

Kristi Query, Founder of Virgin Islands Yacht Charters, said: “Dream Yacht Charter is the worldwide leader in yacht charters and the partnerships means we can develop our St. Thomas operation into the largest, most professionally managed charter base in the US Virgin Islands.  

“The ease of travel, with non-stop flights from many international airports, offers a convenience factor not associated with many other charter locations, as well as, cost-saving advantages. We look forward to integrating our high level of professionalism and work ethic into the Dream Yacht Charter family.”

WINCHES FUNCTION EASIER, LAST LONGER WITH LIQUI MOLY

Liqui MolyDirty winches make grinding sheets and halyards harder than necessary. Cleaning even the simplest single-speed model is a time-consuming task that should be done at least seasonally. That's why it pays to use only a top-quality lubricant like LIQUI MOLY Marine Winch Grease. Specifically formulated for sailing, it delivers the ultimate in wear protection with minimal friction.

Made in Germany, synthetic LIQUI MOLY Marine Winch Grease contains PTFE solid lubricants developed for all winching and hoisting activities.
