News From The Bitter End Yacht Club In The BVI
Question of the Day: What’s the best place for dockage in North Sound?
Answer: The Quarterdeck Marina at the BITTER END YACHT CLUB!
Every sailor worth his or her salt (since the days of Sir Francis Drake) knows the North Sound is one of the best deepwater anchorages in the world. And most folks in the BVI know that Bitter End Yacht Club has 70 surge-free moorings, situated at the protected eastern end of the Sound. But many people don’t realize that Bitter End also has a full-service marina. That’s about to change!!
It’s no secret the last Fall’s Hurricane Earl dealt us a glancing blow, “re-arranging” our waterfront. And while much of
our dockage remained intact throughout this past season, our primary docks at the Quarterdeck Marina needed to be re-built. So we took the opportunity to “re-purpose” our facility with an eye toward the type of boats & yachts that now come to North Sound—bigger monohull charter yachts, and more & bigger charter catamarans. As of this past week, the Bitter End Yacht Club’s Quarterdeck Marina Officially Re-Opened. Have a look at the attached photos (courtesy of our good friends at YachtShots BVI). The first was taken just prior to re-opening, as the finishing touches were being applied. The second was taken as sportfish boats were beginning to arrive for this past week’s BVI Billfish Tournament .
You will notice wider slips (better to accommodate Cats), and a more protective outer bulkhead (ideal for the larger yachts). You will also notice more power posts for those who must have the AC on at all times. And deeper draft capabilities on the outer slips for those really “deep” crewed charter yacht keels. Best of all, we maintained the “Classic Waterfront Look” everyone has come to expect from the Bitter End Yacht Club. And while the facility is grounded in rock-solid concrete, it is skirted and decked in attractive wood--very pleasing to the eye! Dockage rates remain the same as last season, and they can be found by clicking here. So tell everyone to come check it out.
