SunFunBVI Vacations, headed by Monique Putley, has been developed to provide you with the very best service when planing your sailing vacation.
Originally from Brazil, Monique has been living in the British Virgin Islands(BVI) since 1987 when I sailed into the BVI with my husband, Julian Putley, author of the popular island novel, Sunfun Calypso (hence the name SunFun).
I immediately fell in love with the islands, their beauty, people and culture. My background in Brazil was 5 public relations where I headed my own company organizing seminars, conferences and special occasions, so a natural progression was involvement with the yacht charter industry. I worked with The Moorings Bare boat and Crewed Charter Company for eight years in the customer service department. Later I spent four years as a representative for a crewed yacht agency, whereby, I have learned all the insights of the luxury crewed charters, taking my time to be intimate with all aspects of the industry.
During my years in the BVI I have worked as a yacht chef, catered for villas, worked as a deck hand on super yachts and advised clients as a vacation consultant. I know the islands and the industry intimately and, being resident on Tortola, I am immediately aware of any last minute changes on the crews, new yachts, breaking down yachts, or anything that might affect your holiday, I would know it.
