18.06.18 - VPM fleet after hurricane Irma

to top

Almost a year after "Irma", VPM has revised the fleet: yachts have been shifted to other bases, and new acquisitions have replaced the boats that have been lost in the hurricane.

For this reason we would like to show you what is new on our bases

Our fleet is increasing by several bareboat 2018 yachts of the types:
Lagoon 40, Lagoon 42, Lagoon 380

A number of charters have meanwhile taken place from Saint Martin and huge efforts are still being made to not only restore the Anse Marcel Marina to it’s original beauty, but also provide an even nicer harbour.

 The bareboat fleet has expanded immensely. Clients who have previously sailed and loved their old friends Lagoon 421 “Leonor” (2015) and Lagoon 450 “Maui” (2016) in the Caribbean, can sail them in the Seychelles as of November together with their new companion: brand new Lagoon 40 “Ubah”.

Furthermore, a pristine Lagoon 50 “Ocean” will complement our cabin cruise fleet so that we can continue catering for the high demand of our “Cocktail Creole”. This yacht helps us provide both: more available cabins as well as the distinct option to book the yacht for a crewed “exclusive cruise” for smaller groups as well.

13.12.17 - Planting Hope in British Virgin Islands

to top

Hoffnung_pflanzen_Palmen_BVIsYou have certainly seen the pictures of the BVI after the two hurricanes Irma and Maria in September - pictures of the destruction of houses, infrastructure and the beautiful nature of the BVI.

After helping local people with a first fundraising campaign, nature is now coming into focus.
Many coconut palms on the islands have been destroyed and it will take years until they will provide shade on the beaches. We support the project "planting hope" and want to work with you to create palm-fringed beaches.

With the BVI Tourist Board on Tortola and the local school children large palm trees are to be planted. The bigger the better.

We at Barone Yachting are convinced that we can do it together! Support this project with donations of 25, 50, 100 or 1000 €.

For months, the negative headlines about the consequences of the hurricanes dominated the reporting, but partly also covered an incontrovertible fact: Affected are currently only three areas or island groups. Most of the targets are unaffected, and crews can enjoy their winter escape here. On 29 pages, the big Caribbean special in YACHT 25/2017 offers all the necessary information. Andreas Fritsch from the yacht editor via Barone Yachting from Guadeloupe sailed on a Lagoon 400 from VPM Yachtcharter. The 29-page special presents the best areas without hurricane damage.
