WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
About your crew: The crew was essentially invisible until you needed something! Their quarters are separated so don’t even see them coming and going. Our group of foodies was blown away by the chef – he dealt with all of our special requests and prepared amazing, mind-blowing meals. The crew was completely accommodating and catered to our every request. I’m not sure these folks know how to say no!
The experience: This was one of the best vacations we’ve ever taken. There was something for everyone, and the luxury was unparalleled. Thank you so much CKYC! Sue spent the time to understand our unique needs and was a fantastic advocate for us when matching us with the best yacht.
I personally was apprehensive about having to deal with a “salesperson”. I usually do my research and think I know what I want and would prefer to not have ago-between. That said, Sue was amazing – she very clearly added value from the first moment. ~ Z.L. and Family and friends
SAILING ABOARD – QUIXOTE
Note: Brigitte Campbell has published her cookbook: A Culinary Voyage, 10 Days of Gourmet Dining at Sea. Last week Captain Don and Chef extraordinaire Brigitte took care of their 3 cruising guests (all professional men seeking a total sea immersion). 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
SAILING ABOARD – BLITHE SPIRIT
New Years Week 2015 (Sailing in the British Virgin Islands). “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.
SAILING ABOARD – FLIP FLOP
Thanksgiving Week 2014 (Sailing in the Spanish Virgin Islands). 48′ FLIP FLOP Catamaran does it again, entertaining families with young children and their happy parents. “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 their highlights, it was definitely some of the new toys Capt. Jens had (the “Slingshot” and the underwater “Glider” – see our video). 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.”
– Thank you – C.G. Family with 7 year old twin boys.
SAILING ABOARD – LADY J
Week in July 2013 (Sailing in New England). The 142′ LADY J motor yacht is ideal for families and friends. Captain Greg and crew of 8 can prepare beach clambakes anywhere, from Menemsha, Martha’s Vineyard to a private beach in Maine!
“Thank you and crew who took such great care and attention to my family from the Midwest – a real thrill! Summer 2013 no one will forget!” – Our family sends our thanks
SAILING ABOARD – LOLALITA
Week in February 2013 (Sailing in the U.S. Virgin Islands). Pet Friendly Yacht Charter in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Captain Ernie and Mate/Chef Megan are adorable and ideally suited for this dream job.Thank you for taking such good care of my clients. ~Carol“We absolutely needed to have our sweet Bijan join us in a celebration charter this past spring. Carol found the ideal catamaran for us.” Every dog lover will go to added lengths to make it happen.This crew and family bonded for a week of diving in the US VIRGIN ISLAND waters and relaxing with their well-trained Spencer.- Thank you, Boston Couple + their Dog “Spencer”
FAMILY CHARTER BONDING FOR LIFE
Week in February 2012 (Sailing in the British Virgin Islands). “This was our first family yacht vacation. Our children, (ages 8 & 14 years old) cried when our 10 days were over. The crew knew when we needed family time and when to get the children excited about marine life and snorkeling. They were engaging, professional, and the food was fantastic (since we are picky eaters). Carol took all of our “what we want in a vacation” desires and matched us up with the perfect catamaran in the British Virgin Islands. Our children want another yacht vacation – and so do we!”
LUXURY CHARTER IN GREECE
Week in June 2013 (Sailing in Greece). “We called Carol since she has been in the business a long time. We relied on her knowledge for presenting the best Motor Yachts for our valued clients. She made us look great – clients went to Greece for 2 weeks – Carol arranged the yachting portion.”
