Double Down Guest Reviews
August 2019 Croatia
The week of sailing on Double Down Catamaran has been magical because of a beautiful boat, Captain Murray and his crew. We have enjoyed very much sailing Croatia in a beautiful well designed boat and the amazing crew. We have been chartering bigger boats every summer for years. We have decided to try a catamaran to be able to enjoy ducking in shallower water, and it was an excellent experience. The crew of Double Down really impressed us as being professional, accommodating and always attentive with a smile. Captain Murray is very impressive leader and always informative and aware of every little details. Alize is so impressive with her energy and attentiveness and help, we called her Wonder Woman. Francisca making sure we all are very comfortable and taken care of with her reply “of course”. The Chef prepared delicious meals full meals as we dined on board all the time, always with fresh ingredients and plenty of flavors.
We do look forward to charter the same boat with the same crew, for a longer period during next summer, but we prefer to sail different destinations every year.
