5th Anniversary Celebration


CLEARWATER, FL, (January 18, 2016) – MarineMax Vacations is pleased to announced that they are celebrating their five-year anniversary in the British Virgin Islands tomorrow.

Commencing operations with just thirteen sailboats, MarineMax Vacations delivered its first charter in the British Virgin Islands on January 19, 2012. Since then, MarineMax Vacations has enjoyed monumental growth each year and currently operates a fleet of more than 60 boats, including power catamarans, monohull sailboats, and sail catamarans from their base at Hodges Creek Marina.

More than 15,000 guests have vacationed with the company during its first five years operating in the British Virgin Islands (BVI). With the introduction of the only pure-bred power catamaran fleet in the market, MarineMax Vacations has attracted a large number of new travelers to the BVI, primarily power boaters.

Exemplary personal service and exceptional custom, luxury power catamarans have been the leading forces in what is now an elevated standard of the charter vacation experience. The MarineMax Vacations team is comprised of the best in the industry, with a deeply rooted and service oriented team. Evidence of this is MarineMax Vacations being voted the Best BVI Yacht Charter Company and their award-winning line of customized Aquila power catamarans in the fleet.

“Our goal has been not only to raise the standard of the charter vacation experience in the British Virgin Islands, but to do so in conjunction with growing the local industry overall with the introduction of a first-time charter guest. Some of these new guests are now returning for their fourth charter vacation with us.” says Raul Bermudez, of MarineMax Vacations. “We are very excited to be celebrating five years of exceeding our goals as well as customer expectations and look forward to our continued growth worldwide”, explains Bermudez.

MarineMax Vacations is an integral component of the MarineMax vision of being United by Water and the boating lifestyle our families – meaning customers and team members – are so passionate about.

Bill McGill, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer, stated “MarineMax is passionate about exceeding our customer’s expectations and enhancing their passion for the boating lifestyle. MarineMax Vacations is another way we are able to help our customers enjoy the boating lifestyle and enhance their passion for it.”
