Grande Dame Guest Reviews

Rene and Eddie

We booked our friends yacht for a week charter in the BVI. Eddie and René came highly recommended and we could not have gotten a better duo to host us. Eddie was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He took us to fabulous spots and absolutely nothing was too much trouble. We were wined and dined and wow the FOOD! René filled our tummies and ears with delightful food and stories. She took amazing photos of our trip and presented us with such lovely keepsakes that will bless us for a lifetime. We have been really fortunate to have them both and they work together like a well oiled machine. Thank you Eddie and René for making this trip unforgettable and thank you so much for your friendship.

First off let me say that this was our first experience with Navigare and our crew, Captain RenéandEddie Yachting. Hands down THE BEST crew a charter group could ask for. Cap´n Eddie was the most knowledgeable about the BVIs. He took us to so many great spots and was a pleasure to be around. Made sure we got home okay after hitting the bars, and he also knows how to make the BEST painkillers! Rene was the greatest to have around. She was super kind! She was so friendly and made the most amazing meals! They even realized we had some extra provisions and offered to cook more on the boat; which we loved because her food was so much better than off on the islands! It´s amazing what she was able to pull off with a small kitchen setup like that! If you are looking to book with Navigare you MUST ask for Eddie and Rene - just be sure it´s not July of 2019 timing because that is when we WANT them back on our charter!
