Captain Gasper + Crew
Was an amazing vacation! The crew was 1st class and one of the best I have had in over 15 cruises. The food & presentation was excellent. Our chef Lindsey was the best I have had in over 30 years of travel. 5 STAR!
Ian, our 1st mate was very knowledgeable and disciplined so we felt safe and well taken care of. This catamaran and crew is no question a 5 star crew! We will be back and wouldn´t use any other boat or crew!
Thank you and God bless!

What was your first impression of the yacht?
Was advertised equipment onboard and in good condition?
Did the skipper/hostess make you feel welcome and comfortable onboard?
Did you feel free to choose activities?
Please provide specific comments regarding your skipper and hostess.
We have taken many crewed trips, and by far the captain, 1st mate and cook were the best we have ever had.
Were the meals and beverages as you expected?
Terrific, cook was extremely good, meals great. Very professional and as good as you would get in best restaurants.
If you made any special requests were they met?
Was this your first visit to the BVI?
No, we have done BVI´s maybe 10 times and done other cruise´s another 5.
Would you recommend this yacht for a charter vacation?
Thank you ever so much for arranging our vacation trip on Mahasattva. We are on our way home and still in a state of euphoria. The boat is beautiful; it’s new and maintained to perfection.The crew attended to our every desire and anticipated our pleasures way beyond our expectations. The chef worked around our dietary request (gluten-free) and made each meal a culinary treasure. The crew were fun and engaging but respected our privacy when we wanted to be alone. The skipper was expert, flexible and kept us informed at the ideal level for each of us. This was the best vacation we’ve ever had; we’ll be doing it again and highly recommend it to your other clients. I’d be happy to talk with prospective boaters if it’s helpful to you
