Taipan Guest Reviews
m. MARCUS – Le Marin/Martinique 28.12-05.01
The boat was absolutly perfect. Very clean and with a nice and luxury interior. Furthermore the boat was very well equiped with all kind of water toys like SEABOB; STAND-UP PADDLING; KAYAK; TENDER and much more.
The Lagoon 560 S2 with the 4 cabin layout gives a lot of space to passengers. We were on the boat for 8 Nights and everyone feel wvery comfortable. Especially the huge space on the flybridge was used a lot.
From our point of view the crew is more imortant than the boat. We were really lucky because your Skipper Christian and your Hostess Erica are a perfect team. Christian knows every single bay and island and on every island he has a good network of people.
So we always get a nice berth in the Marinas and good guys for trips on the islands. Every bay we have visited was a good choice and not one day was boring. Erica is a very professionell hostess and a nice and lovely angel as well. The meals were diversified and absolutely delicious.
The standard was much much higher than we have expected.
We defintely will try to make another cruise with the Taipan as well. Please feel free to give my email address to any interested people. Finally we stay 8 day and nights on the boat and we have nothing to complain.
In the next days I will send you a stick with some videos and pictures from our cruise.
D.LUC – Portisco/Sardinia 10-17.08
The customer is really happy about his charter.
Thank you for your help.
B. Christo – Portisco/Sardinia 3-10.08
How did you find the boat in general?
The boat was excellent I loved the space inside and outside and the performance was up to the expectations.
What do you think could be improved in the boat?
Maybe some additional water sports activities.
Can you give us an opinion on the crew that we have recommended for you? Skipper and Hostess, courtesy, availability, skill and more. How was the itinerary?
The Hostess was perfect, very kind, smiling, helpful and energetic. The skipper was okay in general but a bit taciturn. As for the itinerary he gave us many options and was always ready for modifications and did his best to take us to the best places depending on whether conditions and ports availability.
What has not fully satisfied you?
One day the wind was a bit strong and were sailing from Maddalena to Porto Quatu , the skipper should’ve warned us that the sailing would be shaky especially that we had with us some 1st timers .. a bit more communication from the skipper’s side would’ve helped prevent some situations.
What did you like most?
The places, the boat in general and its quality.
