Review of 65' Yacht Charter Catamaran Justified Horizons with Capt. Jack, Chef Tanya & Stewardess Shelley~

1. Crew Friendliness: The crew could not have been more friendly.  They were always helpful, always asking if we needed anything, always offering new things to do.

2. Crew Knowledge: Jack was particularly knowledgeable about the area. He knew exactly where to go and when to avoid either crowds or increased wind speed in certain coves.

3. Quality of Service: Top notch.

4. The Professionalism of Crew: Top notch.

5. Value of the Cost of the Charter: It was our first charter.  And while we thought it was initially expensive, we didn't feel like we overpaid when we were done with the trip. 

6. On-Board Cuisine: Terrific.  We all wanted to take Tanya home with us!

7. Destination / Location: Great.  I would do the same destination all over again, but I know Jack would want to take us to different places. He mentioned St. Croix and islands off Puerto Rico that sound interesting.

8. Water-Sports: Loved the toys, especially the sea-bobs and snorkeling.

9. Overall Satisfaction: On a 10 point scale....a 10. 

What was the most memorable highlight of your yacht charter vacation? 

- Probably cruising to Anegada completely on wind/ engine power at all.

- And night snorkeling with flashlights

- And eating the largest lobster I have ever eaten in my life in Anegada

Any additional comments you would like to make regarding your vacation experience? We can't wait to do it again.

What was the most memorable highlight of your yacht charter vacation? We both agreed that it is difficult to pinpoint one most memorable highlight.  Every day brought on a new adventure and we loved all the destinations.  Watching the crew sail from Virgin Gorda to Anagada was very interesting.  Also, the beach bonfire was a great memory.  Our favorite destination was Christmas Cove which included scuba (Steve) and night snorkeling (Steve, Don and crew).

Any additional comments you would like to make regarding your vacation experience? We were very impressed by the professionalism of the entire crew.  A friend had been on another charter and was concerned that the crew was ;partying with them every night.  We didn’t fully understand her concern until we saw firsthand the scope of responsibility the crew had.  Captain Jack and his crew were absolute professionals.  They were with us day and night as enjoyable companions, but left the partying to us.  There were truly impressive.

"I can't put into words how incredible this vacation was. Dani and Paul were the two pieces that made the experience all that it was, without a doubt. Their commitment to excellence was second to none and expectations were exceeded in every way. By the way, the two other couples we sailed with were so fun and quickly became friends with them! 

Thank you so very much for all your help. I look forward to sailing again with Yacht Charters Guru. Thank you again!”

Review of the Best Yacht Charter Brokers

About Us-Your Charter Yacht Brokers:

Capt. Randy & Shelly Tucker!

Professional CYBA Yacht Charter Brokers

If you want to experience a luxury yacht charter vacation first hand and up close, there is no better way than on your own privately crewed yacht with a full-time professional Captain and Chef/First Mate. We've been sailing and chartering for well over thirty years.

The U.S. Virgin Islands and British Virgin Islands were our "backyard" which we came to love and cherish. So much so, that we sold everything in 1997 and moved to Charlotte Amalie, USVI as owners & operators aboard the 72' sailing yacht Three Moons. We do know the ins and outs of this special place & the people who live there. That's what makes us an official "Yacht Charters Guru”! Never been on a chartered yacht vacation? We will help you personally design your charter yacht vacation. Imagine being able to sail into small bays with beautiful white sands & fantastic snorkeling. A yacht vacation is a great way to spend time with your friends or family.

Why use a CYBA Certified Yacht Charter Broker?

Key Takeaways:

  • As a member of CYBA, the Charter Yacht Broker’s Association, we adhere to strict yacht charter booking protocols. We have access to the CYBA industry escrow account and E-Contract to protect your money. This is made available by CYBA for electronic use only by established, industry recognized and reputable Yacht Brokers.

  • Charter yacht crews, yacht owners and travel agents do not have access to this account.

  • Busy charter yacht with lots of charters: If the crew are taking care of guests onboard, they honestly do not have time to answer a lot of travel questions.

  • This is what differentiates professionally licensed yacht brokers from anyone else trying to book charters.

  • Very Important! It is not safe to send your hard-earned money directly to a business or yacht that is not accredited by a professional charter industry association to handle yacht charter client funds. Always ask!

Choose from an extensive list of yachts, including our spacious and stable catamaran charters, power catamarans, traditional monohull sailboat vacations, or high-end luxury motor yacht charters in the U.S. Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands, Bahamas, Belize, Croatia. Greece, and the Mediterranean.

We do not sell yachts like many other agencies so there is no conflict or distraction in our focus for your yacht charter. Our service is free to you. We travel extensively to boat shows and yacht charter shows year-round to personally view and inspect as many of the yachts as possible.

6 Reasons Why We are Qualified:

1. As Members of the Charter Yacht Brokers Association, The Virgin Islands Professional Charter Yacht League, and the BVI Charter Yacht Society, we maintain contact with the yachts to keep abreast of the very latest information on crew/yacht conditions and new yachts entering the arena.

2. We stay on top of local and Federal Governments to keep informed about changes in our industry, as well as involve ourselves with the changes in the environment in which we offer charters.

3. We engage in open dialogue with local publications to help keep the government and the public aware of this important industry in our islands.

4. We attend multiple charter yacht industry shows in the Caribbean and Mediterranean, go aboard each of the yachts, meet the crews, attend association meetings and seminars. We'll happily share our notes about changes to the boats and crews and confirm any newly added features and upgrades as well as re-fits to the boat’s decor like new carpets, interior and exterior soft goods & fun new water toys.

 5. As a seasoned charter yacht Owner & Crew, we have access to the "inner circle" and know all the insider facts. 6. We've developed a longtime friendship with vendors of services such as local taxi drivers, ferry companies, good places to stay on land, great restaurants, and much more.
