Nova Guest Reviews

Sail and explore St .Vincent to Grenada

10/10 experience that we will be talking about for a lifetime. Rolf and Mariana took my family on a truly epic ´sail and explore´ trip downwind in St. Vincent and the Grenadines to celebrate my father´s 75th birthday. We visited 7 islands in 7 days aboard “Nova”, a 47-foot sailing catamaran. We sailed, fished, hiked, snorkeled, SUP´d, swam with sea turtles, RELAXED, and everything in between.

This trip had everything -- a world-class sailboat in top shape, a customized itinerary, experienced hosts with deep local knowledge, absolutely FANTASTIC locally-sourced food prepared by Mariana, and amazing winds and weather. We are a picky bunch that is usually tough to impress, but this trip over-delivered, big-time. We hope to return!

Rolf and Mariana made our first crewed charter a great success.Nova crew was all about service and improvisation to make for a wonderful trip.-Ernest Goets

Pia Haapalainen Caribbean island hopping

Rolf and Mariana took us to beautiful paradise islands with white sand beaches and turquoise waters which you can access only by boat. They also took us to snorkelling with thousands of fish and big turtles, they know the best spots. You can enjoy catamaran sailing & island hopping, the best way to experience the Caribbean Islands and enjoy the sea. Mariana is an excellent cook, we had the best lobster tails ever.

Thank you Team Nova!

We had just the most amazing time with you. Turtles, beaches, singrays, lobster - wow!
Your hospitality was just awesome and a trip never to forget!

Every Day Good Vibes!

We all wish to have new experiences in life. Those are the ones that enrich our lifes and empower our growth. Like any other addicted kiter we always seek for new challenges, either new destinations or different ways of living kitesurf.

And what an experience i had last year on catamaran Nova. Wohoo feeling so greatfull! Imagine the perfect receipt: sun and warm weather, amazing island landscapes and new kite spots everyday, get together kite, share life experiences with those who have the same interests, have nice and healthy food, and end the day relaxing at catamaran watching the stars/lights from the near islands, or watching a movie or day drone shootings filmages.

But what really makes the catamaran special were the hosts. Their passion by life and kite its contagious and brings you everyday good vibes and the assurance they will pursue the best spots, cause they are doing this not just for you, but for themselfes as well :;)).
My experience was amazing and for those who now only dream about new kite adventures, i strong recommend to take action, and experiment a unique holidays, by joining Mariana and Rolf.

Good Crew, Fantastic Food

Good crew , fantastic food. One week we will never forget. The catamaran is clean and spacious. Beautiful scenery, and calm seas. Ganka

Review from Cyclades

The crew is very friendly and fun, they made us feel very comfortable and special! We visited the most beautiful bays like from postcards! The crew showed us the most famous and visited places on the Cyclades islands! The catamaran is well equipped and the food was very delicious for which we thank the beautiful host! The crew is very hospitable and always thinks of something for fun for the whole group. I hope I can come back this summer again for this amazing adventure! Krasi
