It has been a few turbulent months for Willy T. and their owner Ewan Anderson. The legendary floating bar Willy T. that used to be moored at Norman Island / The Bight for 35 years was destroyed when the 2 category 5 hurricanes hit the BVI and USVI in September 2017.

A new vessel was secured at retrofitted to match the original Willy T. with a lots of improvements (like larger and now with septic holding tanks). Upon arriving in the BVI after a 1600 mile voyage in May 2018, Willy T. was declined anchorage at their former spot on Norman Island, you can read more about it here and here.

After a giant wave of support in social media they thankfully quickly found a new spot which is at Great Harbour on Peter Island and have re-opened last week in June 2019 but after a few months was magically allowed to return to it's original spot.

The Willy T is a party spot with their traditional island drinks are fantastic and always served with a generous pour of rum and a smile. Dark & Stormies, Rum Punches and Bushwackers are  the drinks of the day and as the afternoon wears on, shooters and body shots become a great source of entertainment and intoxication. It's a truly magic place where memories are made.

"R" rated jumps off the top deck, laughing, screaming, music, happy hour, all leads to a great time on the Willy T. A quick google image search will give you an idea of the party that is going on there every day. And check out our video below from the infamous jump off the top deck:
