The Palms Villa - Private Boat Charter

Get Out and On to the Water!

Private Boat Charter

Our new The Aquila 36 Power Luxury Catamaran arriving March 2022!

One of the highlights of vacationing on St. John is experiencing a day charter on a boat. There is so much to see and do on the water; it truly is a must do if you have the time. We know from our own family the day charter is always one of the most talked about activities.

From the start, we have tried to offer the best when it comes to our villas and amenities. Most of our guests do charter boats, however, finding a charter company can sometimes be a challenge as most do not have published rates or calendars and the service many times is not up to a standard we would expect. We also felt many of the charter boats lacked in offering a boat that truly was geared towards a day trip charter. We have been on a lot of boats! We spent a long time researching the perfect day boat and we feel we have found it!

The Aquila 36 Power Luxury Catamaran truly is the perfect day trip boat! It is fast, stable, has a huge open concept, and lots of seating inside and out. The Inside is luxurious and spacious! A lot of boats do not offer adequate shade or cover for those unexpected rain showers. Everyone comes to St. John for the beauty and the sun. However, even too much sun can be too much. Most boats do not give you the ability to really get out from the strong sun that is even more intense on the water with the reflection from the sea. When you’re on the Aquilla, you’ll find both open spaces and comfortable covered areas to relax.

This boat was designed from the ground up to be the perfect day boat, I think once you see the pictures and video you will agree it looks great!
