Virgin Gorda Yacht Charter
Virgin Gorda is the third largest island in terms of area in the British Virgin Islands and you can see the list of Virgin Gorda yacht charters here.
The beautiful Caribbean Virgin island called Virgin Gorda was discovered by the famous explorer Christopher Columbus in 1493. The island is located on the western side of Aguilla at a distance of about 12 miles from the Tortola Island, which puts it smack bang in the middle of luxury yacht charter territory. The Caribbean is growing in terms of yachting popularity and the Virgin Islands are seeing an increasing number of large crewed luxury yachts and superyachts, many of which are available for charter with CharterWorld. Being the Caribbean this area is popular for both sailing yachts, as there is an abundance of warm Caribbean trade winds, and motor yachts too because of the wonderful beaches, harbours and ports to visit and the closeness of many islands.
The land mass area of Virgin Gorda is 10 square miles and the topography mainly consists of mountains and pristine beaches. People who would like to join a Virgin Gorda charter yacht can easily reach the island by air or a luxury yacht which they can take from either of St. Maarten, St. Thomas, Puerto Rico and San Juan. Virgin Gorda is well known in many luxury yachting circles as a picturesque destination offering plenty of shots for the avid photographer.
The Topography of Virgin Gorda
Virgin Gorda is just about 9 miles long between the farthest points from end to end. The best part of taking the Virgin Gorda yacht charter services is that the island is not spoilt due to extreme commercialization.

The yacht clubs are definitely a place to visit if you are looking forward to book yacht holidays. The island is an important staging point for yacht charters who then continue their onward journey to other islands.
