St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. New opportunities to network, learn, shine and certify all in a world-class venue are what yacht brokers and crewed yachts can anticipate at the 2022 USVI Charter Yacht Show. Set for November 12-15 and hosted by the Virgin Islands Professional Charter Association (VIPCA) at IGY Marinas’ Yacht Haven Grande St. Thomas. St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands.
This is the show where charter brokers and crew make, renew and really build relationships, while quenching a thirst for information on local cruising grounds and Virgin Islands chartering compliance at a host of daily seminars and presentations. For participating yachts, whether new or seasoned, there are new opportunities not only to network and learn, but to certify and shine all in a world-class venue with exceptionally low berthing rates extended one week either side of the show.
