Shore Side Yacht Services

Discovered by Columbus in 1493 and named by him after St Ursula and her 11,000 martyred virgins, the British Virgin Islands has had a colourful history.

Home to pirates, planters and competing national interests it now enjoys more peaceful visitors – cruising yachtsmen, visiting sailors and charter yachts. It also hosts a myriad of world class sailing and windsurfing events. Over the years the BVI has long been popular with visiting yachtsmen.
SSYS is conveniently located at Village Cay Marina in the heart of Road Town, Tortola, British Virgin Islands, close to banks, shops, restaurants and marine repair services.

The staff at SSYS take pride in offering a customised, personal service to all their clients to ensure they have a smooth passage through the waters of the British Virgin Islands. They are able to coordinate and consolidate their clients’ accounts throughout the Caribbean, from the British Virgin Islands to Grenada.

Customs & Immigration Formalities

Pre-clearance of yachts can be arranged, thus minimising the time required to complete these formalities. No crew member is required to accompany the agent to Customs and Immigration. In addition, once using SSYS as your agent, clients do not have to be in a port of entry. Drop the hook at Peter Island, or Norman Island, and send a tender into Road Town and SSYS will handle your clearance. In addition, we now have an agent in North Sound, Virgin Gorda, who can pick up your documents directly from your yacht and clear the vessel through Customs and Immigration in Spanish Town.
