Footloose Sailing Charters Celebrates 15th Anniversary With Lower Prices, Expanded Fleet & New 4-Hour Service Guarantee

CLEARWATER, FL--(Marketwire - December 9, 2010) - Footloose Sailing Charters is celebrating 15 years of providing the best value sailing vacation in the British Virgin Islands by announcing new, lower prices and the largest fleet expansion in company history, which will double their fleet of monohull and catamaran sailboats. Additionally, Footloose has just instated the new Footloose 4-Hour Service Guarantee to assure our clients of an exciting and fun sailing vacation free of hassles.

Footloose Fleet Doubles in Size

"This is an exciting time for Footloose," commented Cheryl Powell, Chief Operating Officer, "not only are we celebrating our 15th anniversary with this fleet expansion, but we're also proud to experience such growth with bigger models entering the fleet. We've found that many of our charter guests are sailing in larger parties, and this new offering is designed to accommodate their needs."

Available for sailing vacations beginning December 2010, Footloose's newest monohulls will range in size from the Footloose 343 (3-cabin/1-head) to the Footloose 51 (5-cabin/5-head). Guests will also have a greater selection of catamarans, including the Footloose 380 (3-cabin/2-head) and Footloose 410 (4-cabin/4-head). For cozier accommodation, Footloose also offers smaller sailboats like the Footloose 32.2 (2-cabin/1-head).

Located in the beautiful British Virgin Islands, Footloose has renewed its commitment to offer the Caribbean's most affordable, well-equipped bareboat and skippered sailing vacations for everyone -- from relaxed vacationers to party-animals, novice sailors to die-hard seaman, and all groups in between. Footloose provides well-maintained monohulls and catamarans from world-class builders, including Beneteau, Robertson & Caine and Jeanneau. All yachts are fully equipped for superb handling and a hassle-free vacation with amenities such as full navigation electronics, electric windlass, furling genoa, dinghy with outboard, radio/CD player, fully-appointed galleys, refrigeration, BBQ grills, snorkeling gear and much more.

NEW Footloose 4-Hour Service Guarantee

Effective immediately, the new Footloose 4-hour Service Guarantee pledges to complete any necessary repairs within four hours of notification when a breakdown occurs during charter, or the guest will be compensated for all vacation time lost. Powell added, "This Guarantee is a nice benefit for our charter guests and covers equipment essential to the operation of the yacht, including the engine, transmission, windlass, sails, standing and running rigging, and the battery and alternator. This Guarantee assures our clients of an exciting and fun sailing vacation free of hassles!"

Editors Note: Footloose Sailing Charters, a leader in the budget sailing vacations sector and owned by TUI Marine, offers bareboat and skippered charters from their base in Tortola, British Virgin Islands.
