Croatia yachting review from our clients

Photo sent from our clients aboard 92′ AURUM this week

92′ Gulet AURUM charters exclusively in Croatia from May to early October.  We just received this email from our clients who are still on their family vacation.

“WE ARE IN HEAVEN. Can’t recommend the boat or crew enough. Top notch in all respects and we don’t want it to ever end. Captain Jere is the absolute best. Will tell you more later! Hope I can return here with same boat and crew.”  August 2016

Our own Sue Gearan arranged this charter and nailed it with her expertise! The client and family are sailing round trip to and from Split, Croatia.  Sue tailored and coordinated the itinerary with the Captain and our clients.

Ports of call on this unique vacation voyage in the Adriatic Sea included UNESCO‬ sites such as the Pakleni Islands‬, the village of Milna, Lastovo‬, Korcula‬, the breathtaking Jelsa Islands of Vis‬ and Hvar, known as “the Santorini of Croatia”.  This itinerary is best for experiencing the region’s history and culture.

Another Croatia itinerary option to consider:  Trogir to Dubrovnik

Sailing review aboard 87′ Motor Sailor QUIXOTE

Note:  QUIXOTE Chef Brigitte Campbell has published her own Culinary Voyage Cookbookcookbook “A Culinary Voyage – 10 Days of Gourmet Dining at Sea”, available at Amazon.com.

Last week, Captain Don and Chef extraordinaire Brigitte took care of their 3 cruising guests (all professional men seeking a total sea immersion).   They boarded in Sag Harbor, NY enjoying six days of sailing, relaxing and eating very well!  Sag Harbor is located in the Hamptons and historically known for it’s late 1600’s whaling port.

Day 1.  Fisher Island (more itinerary ideas)

Day 2. Bristol, RI: they visited the  HERRESHOFF MARINE MUSEUM / AMERICA’S CUP HALL OF FAME

Day 3.  Vineyard Haven Harbor on Martha’s Vineyard

Day 4.  Cuttyhunk HarborCuttyhunkoverview

Day 5.  Block Island Harbor

Day 6.  Sag Harbor

“The accommodations were perfect – 3 private staterooms with ensuite bathrooms.  It is a wonderful thing when our vacation “match-making” surpasses expectations from both the guests and the crew.

Sue works tirelessly with our clients to get these rave reviews!

The trip was seamless. Don and Brigit couldn’t have been nicer, more professional and a pleasure to be around. Brigit’s cooking is excellent. Twice we told her we would eat ashore only to realize that nothing would be better than the delicious meal she had planned. Capt’ Don was flexible with our itinerary. We made several changes over the 6 days and nothing seemed to ruffle him.

The boat was very comfortable and well maintained. The trip was a real treat.

Thanx Sue for setting it up.   Best, Eric”

Luxury yacht sailing british virgin islands

52′ BLITHE SPIRIT 2 Sailing Yacht
Ideal for Two

What clients say about Blithe Spirit:

“One of the most relaxing vacations we’ve had!

We really enjoyed Michel and Dominique’s company. They were attentive without being intrusive and went out of their way to cater to us, whether it was for off boat excursions, or creating a relaxing atmosphere on board. Michel, though injured, took us on many excursions and was very accommodating with dinghy rides to the beach, etc.

The boat was well maintained and clean and was very well equipped. We had everything we needed.

Food Review: Dominique is an accomplished chef – we enjoyed every meal, and look forward to trying some of the recipes we got from her. Her galley was amazingly well provisioned, and the execution of each meal was flawless!” I.K & S.D.

What clients say about FLIP FLOP

FLIP FLOP sunset in Spanish VI_taken by Captain Jens

Here is a review sent in by one of our clients who chartered a luxury sail yacht in the Spanish Virgin Islands.

“Great to be back (although snow on the ground). Team, Again, Kudos all around! Our best vacation ever….and the boys are still raving about the experiences (especially Sling Shot)”…

We had a blast – enjoying very much the boat, crew and the itinerary. The “Bio Bay” was really cool and very unique (when isn’t kayaking in the dark) – the boys loved it…but if you asked them they’re highlights…it was definitely some of the new toys Capt. Jens had (the “Slingshot” and the underwater “Glider” – see attached).

Overall – we loved Flip Flop and would definitely consider sailing with them again. Gave us great perspective and insight into chartering beyond our Freshman attempt (every boat, crew, captain is different).”

Thank you – C.G. Family with 7 year old twin boys.
So….Here’s the video recap…
