Jim & Cecilia have a great operation in Tortola. We picked them for the "Mom & Pop" local small business flavor and they delivered way behind that. The Pinta was a fabulous boat and you could tell that Jim makes sure that his yachts receive the TLC that they require. We didn't have a problem once and thoroughly enjoyed the two weeks we were there. What Cecilia offered in the way of information for amenitifes before and after the charter was priceless. Highly recommend them and looking forward to our next charter in November 2010.

We've been visiting the islands since 1988. We made the switch from land to sea in 93 (or so). During the last 15 years, we've chartered w/most every company, large and small. It was about four years ago when our regular charter company could not meet our required dates. I remember hearing about a company that was with new owners and had a feeling that they would put forth the extra effort we desired. They did just that and we haven't looked back. Our last four trips have been with PVC and we will continue to charter with them in the future. THEY CARE AND IT SHOWS!

The Cole Family (Noxesville, VA, USA) Jan 2008
We have chartered with several different companies in the BVI for over 15 charters. This was our first charter with Pro Valor and they were excellent. Their pre-charter service is outstanding, they answered all of my questions and made it clear they really cared about our happiness with their company. The systems and equipment on our boat were flawless, we didn't have one issue. In fact ,the refrigeration on our Lagoon 410 was the best we have ever experienced. Pro Valor will be our charter company of choice for our future vacations.
The Alderfers (San Diego, CA, USA) Jun 07

The Klees Group (Athens, GA, USA) Holidays Dec 07/Jan 08
First of all thanks for the wonderful charter. This was the kind of holiday Gaby and I looked forward to. We didn't do a lot of miles but relaxed a lot. The weather was great and the boat was in mint condition which added to our relaxed frame of mind. Wish we were back in the BVI. I'll take your bad weather over snow any day. Thanks again for a great holiday ... and the side road trip to Josiah's.

Stace - Seadog Sailing School (Colorado, USA) - Feb 08
We would like to thank you for everything you did to ensure that we had an outstanding charter. The boat was fantastic, the booking and planning was effortless and I think you must have pulled a few strings in the weather department too. We can't wait to come back and charter with Pro Valor again!
Josh N. (Newton, MA, USA) Holidays Dec 07/Jan 08
Just a short note to let you know how much we enjoyed our experience with Pro Valor. Everything on the boat worked every time and was very reliable. The engine, dingy motor, heads and sail systems all were in excellent working condition and made for a fun, safe week of cruising. We had a very enjoyable week and the experience turned the children in to future sailors.
Phillip K. (Atlanta, GA -- USA)
