I am interested in purchasing a 42' or 46' boat with the sole intent of keeping it moored on STJ full time as a vacation home for my family and friends. I just got off the phone with DPNR and after getting transferred to 6 different departments was told there are currently no open spaces on STJ. I asked if there was a waiting list and was told I could apply for a spot and if it came open I could get it. I would need to have the boat registered in the USVI before being able to apply however. Also I need to indicate the spot I want on the application. This information doesn't seem to make sense to me, how can I register the boat in the USVI when I have nowhere to put it and how can I apply for a spot when it's not available?

Can anyone help me? Does anyone know of someone thinking of vacating a spot?

If you're interested in a mooring on St Thomas I could PM you with the information.

We are in the process of a major boating shake-up on STT, with DPNR moving all live-aboards and moored boats out of the protected areas. This outflux, coupled with the shortage of moorings and the reluctance of DPNR to grant mooring permits, makes for a real problem mooring a boat at this time.

Didn't know about that. I plan on heading down in February to check things out and will be looking at villas as well.

Thanks for the info.
