About Us

Privilege Catamarans America

Privilege Catamarans America is a division of VSV (Vacances Sous Voiles) and is the exclusive dealer for Privilege-Marine in the USA, Canada and the Caribbean. Based in Montreal, VSV has maintained a sailing charter, yacht service and yacht sales center at the Nanny Cay Marina and Resort in the BVI since 2004.

Highly service oriented, VSV is also the only authorized Privilege-Marine service centre on this side of the Atlantic.

The entire VSV family calls Montreal home, and for this reason Richard, Helen, Denis and their staff bring a warm and welcoming French-Canadian atmosphere to the islands.
