About Me

Proudly, I am the CEO of Barrington Hall Yacht Charters.

After sailing 6,000 across the Atlantic from our native South Africa on our own 44’ catamaran, my wife Gaile and I captained our own sailboat for charter in the British Virgin Islands​ for 5 years.

Beginning in 1990 we began providing crewed catamaran sailing charters​ throughout the Caribbean and British Virgin Islands.

For the last 19 years Barrington Hall Yacht Charters has specialized in all-inclusive luxury catamaran​ sailing vacations and power yacht charters in the Caribbean, Bahamas, Mediterranean and Greece.

For immediate assistance, call 800-478-2029.
