June 2017

Exceeded all expectations. The yacht is truly a yacht in every sense of the word! Everything was very ‘Ship Shape’ and in ‘Bristol Fashion’! Complementing this superb vessel was our totally professional and finest crew. Both Paul and Tanya went above and beyond to make our time onboard very special.
We are very thankful for all the time and effort Paul and Tanya put forth to make the charter simply ‘The Best’
Fair Winds and calm seas

Paul & Tanya,
We enjoyed our time with you more than ever expected! You made us feel like new friends rather than clients, and we truly enjoyed getting to know you!
It was fantastic sailing through the BVI and learning about the area. We’ll never forget the amazing natural beauty of the islands.
The meals were absolutely phenomenal! You introduced us to so many new flavours! All restaurants should immediately change their recipes to Tanya’s Tiramisu!!
We appreciated your attention to detail and your knowledge and experience.
Thank you so much for this incredible opportunity! Until next time!

An absolutely wonderful weeks sailing on the yacht. Idyllic scenery as we navigated the islands, Paul and Tanya’s knowledge and experience finding the most spectacular hideaways, and ‘sundowner locations’! We were spoiled with fantastic meals, top restaurant standard, using local ingredients, great presentation! Exceeded all expectations, leaving ‘chilled’ and rested, and will definitely be returning! Thank you Paul and Tanya, you’ve been fabulous company and perfect hosts!
Windsurfing lessons! Daily turtle sightings!
