BVI Yacht Sales is located at Nanny Cay Resort and Marina, the premier marine service location in the British Virgin Islands. This facility includes a 200-slip marina and full service yard, comfortable hotel and good restaurants set on a tropical island offering our clients the most enjoyable Caribbean yacht purchase experience possible.
With a staff of four full-time brokers, an office/closing manager and a marketing manager we are amply staffed throughout all aspects of the brokerage.
Our Brokers include Chris Simpson, also co-owner of BVI Yacht Sales since 1997. Immediately prior to Yacht Brokering Chris was Operations Manager for TMM Yacht Charter’s largest base of 50 boats. Chris’s early passion was teaching sailing, which he did for a decade in the U.K. This included running his own RYA School for 5 years. Chris has spent all of his working life in the sailing industry as well as much of his childhood years cruising offshore which, combined with his other sailing, totals around 40,000 miles. Chris is an RYA Yachtmaster Instructor who has a well rounded knowledge of most things nautical which he is always happy to share with clients.
Clive Allen started his nautical career in the diving industry leading him to work in Australia and Asia, including running his own dive shop in the Philippines. Clive has spent 4 years live-aboard cruising from Hong Kong to Madagascar and, more recently, two years cruising the length and breadth of the Caribbean with his wife and young daughter. Clive’s extensive travels have given him a well rounded outlook that allows him to quickly tune into any client’s requirements, he is also fully fluent in French which is a great plus. Clive holds the French Ocean Captain qualification and has a strong background in diesel mechanics.
Brian Duff comes with a wealth of experience from owning many different yachts, sailing on most types of boats out there, as well as working in the service and repair side of the industry for the last 15 years. Brian recently sold ‘Southbound Cruising Services’, a rigging specialist shop he created and ran in the very active Annapolis area before making the move to BVI Yacht Sales in 2009. Brian’s deep and far reaching knowledge of yachts gets put to great use helping clients understand the boats they are buying. Having made a living upgrading and rebuilding many boats, Brian is also very well equipped to advise sellers on the detailing that can be done to get the best sale price, fast! Brian and his wife Kim have many thousands of miles offshore and coastal cruising already under the keel and continue to cruise under sail with their young son at every opportunity.
Todd Duff has been sailing since an early age and began working in yacht sales in 1982. He previously worked as a marine contractor, holds current credentials as an accredited marine surveyor and is a well-known writer for many of the popular sailing magazines such as Cruising World, Blue Water Sailing, Good Old Boat, Cruising Outpost, All At Sea and others.
He has cruised extensively with his children as crew while homeschooling them and raised his kids to be great lovers of the sea. He has been involved in long distance sailing since 1987 and has spent 12 out of the last thirty years as a full time cruiser. During this time he has visited 27 countries under sail in the Atlantic, Caribbean and the North and South Pacific.
Todd is careful, conscientious and dedicated to making certain that his clients are well informed and professionally handled. With over 700 yachts sold in his career as a Yacht Broker, and with his experience as both a former general marine contractor and SAMS Marine Surveyor, Todd is extremely well qualified and able to assist both buyers and sellers through the process of dealing with any issues or concerns that may come up during the boat buying or selling process.
