“As a 15-year resident of the Virgin Islands, I am proud that CharterWorld is joining the effort to ‘give back’ and help to rebuild the islands of the Caribbean devastated by Hurricanes Irma and Maria,” Amanda Brilliante commented.

“The destruction visited on our brothers and sisters in Barbuda virtually laid waste to this once-beautiful charter destination. The Rebuild Barbuda effort reflects the industry’s recognition and appreciation of the warm welcome this island community has extended to the yachting community over so many decades, and will again in years to come.” Amanda continues.

There is a long list of luxury yachts attending the event: Below are seven superyachts that stand out and are available for charter in the Caribbean over the winter season.
