Guest Comments: Yacht Charter Sailboat and Catamaran Vacation Reviews for March 2017

The luxury crewed sailing yachts we represent in the Virgin Islands are exceptional and receive fabulous reviews from both clients and industry professionals. When you step onboard these yachts, you realize how comfortable and affordable a charter yacht vacation can be. There is a yacht for every vacation budget. Fabulous cooling breezes and calm anchorages for a great night's sleep are a bonus on any USVI & BVI charter. It’s all about what you want, when you want. While many guests are happy to sit back and be pampered, there’s so much to do! If you want to be more active, there’s kayaking, paddle boarding, wake boarding, water skiing, tubing and hiking. The crews love to share their local knowledge of marine life as well as teaching the finer points of sailing and yachting.

Because we've been in this industry for almost 20 years, it's easy for us to spot really wonderful professional crews who will go the extra mile and know how to anticipate the needs of their clients. We've been told that our experience as a yacht charter Captain & Chef team makes other crews more comfortable during their onboard interviews. They tend to open up to us more, revealing their true personalities and interests. Our job to match the right team to the right client. We think we've accomplished this very well with the recent reviews below from our clients after their charter sailing vacations.

"The crew of Xenia 74 was very friendly, professional & very knowledgeable about sailing and the Virgin Islands. The service was impeccable! The value of the cost of the charter was good! Cuisine was awesome! The Crew took care of everything! All water sports were offered. We would book Xenia 74 again. Loved every minute and will definitely contact you again for our next charter. Will also share your info with anyone interested in traveling to the BVI!

Many thanks!"

Catamaran Akasha

"My favorite memory of our tandem yacht charter trip aboard Catamaran Akasha & Catamaran Bamarandi was simply watching the bonding of all of our children & grandchildren with each other. I loved watching all the little cousins play in the water. The food on both yachts was exquisite! I cannot say enough about how both the crews were always there for us, offering whatever we needed and checking on us. This trip was a great way for 13 people to travel together. I particularly liked how whenever I called Shelly at Yacht Charters Guru, no matter if it was day or night, she was always there to answer the phone and my questions. I will miss our regular phone calls! We so appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Thanks so very much!"

"Hello, Shelly.

We just wanted to say thank you for all your help organizing our family’s vacation. What a wonderful time away we all had. It far surpassed any expectations we may have had, and will be the topic of choice when discussing our best memories for years to come.

As our family spent most of our time on board Bamarandi, we felt it would be appropriate to comment on our experience. From the first time we stepped on deck, we were welcomed with open hearts. Donald and Audrey worked tirelessly to ensure we were always comfortable, entertained, and extremely well cared for and well-fed! We were so impressed with their level of professionalism and competence. They were always mindful of our children, whether it was looking out for their safety while playing with all the amazing toys, instructing and leading them in scuba diving, or just spending time entertaining them with Caribbean stories, history and card tricks! Of course, the kids enjoyed their time with Richard as well, who made our stay so comfortable, they were wishing he would come home with us!! The boat itself is lovely and modern. It was meticulously kept and very comfortable for our large family of 7. There’s just something so relaxing about being gently rocked to sleep each night! We can’t say enough about our vacation on board the Bamarandi. Our only warning to future guests would be to take care, because once you sail with them, you may never want to go anywhere else ever again!"

Best regards,

Chris and Diane Jackey

"We had been waiting for the moment to board the catamaran Lotus for MONTHS! Our time on the Lotus lived up to all the expectations we had. it is going to be almost impossible to ever go back to a resort or to go back to every night cooking, because the Lotus crew spoiled us (We enjoyed it very much). It was wonderful watching Carson jump in the water and go snorkeling for the first time by himself. I loved my birthday experience! It's something I will never forget! See you next time!"

"Our charter with Drumbeat 1 was great. Vince and the crew were terrific. I think everyone on the boat had a great time. The food was great and the service on the boat was great. About all I can say is that everything was great. It was a very memorable trip."

Thanks for all of your help,

GM & Friends
