Virgin Traders was founded in 1996 by Will Driver and James Burgess. Both are originally from the UK, but fell in love with the islands the first time they saw them. Will lives on Tortola and works full time at Nanny Cay Marina. James has recently moved back to the UK to be near his family, and continues to help manage Virgin Traders remotely.
Initially, Virgin Traders was based out of Hodges Creek in the East End of Tortola and the original office was literally, a converted broom cupboard borrowed from Sun Yachts – it was approximately 12ft long by 8ft wide, no windows and no a/c!
Virgin Traders was founded as, and continues to be, the ONLY Exclusively Motor Yacht Charter Company in the BVI’s. Many people think of the BVI’s soley for sailing, but Will and James realized there were thousands of motor yacht enthusiasts wanting a way to see the islands as well!
In October of 1998 Virgin Traders moved into the present offices at Nanny Cay Marina -with air conditioning! Our offices here now extend to cover Customer Services and Reception, Reservations and accounts together with the Operations Office, Laundry, Technical workshops and storage buildings.
