What some of our clients had to say, after their Bareboat, Skippered, or Crewed sailing holiday with us


I just wanted to let you know we are back safely from our holiday in Croatia. The Libra was fabulous! We cannot speak highly enough about the crew and staff, they were fantastic - nothing was too much trouble. The quality of the food was also excellent.

Thanks for you help in organising the charter. We had a great time and will definitely be doing it again.

I really liked the gulet malena. I thought it was a great boat. The cook accommodated a wide range of eating constraints (two vegetarians, one person allergic to fish, etc.) The captain executed all he needed to do and the check out was seamless.

Thanks again for all your help Bob. We are going to want to do another charter with 14 people in the beginning of next August. We would love to go to the the islands of Greece, like Santorini or Mykonos. Any guidance would be much appreciated!

I just wanted to let you know that we are back from our holiday and had an EXCELLENT time. All the logistics worked smoothly. Of course we were familiar with the Lagoon 440 from our time in the BVI, but the Principessa Alice was clean and well maintained and altogether a good boat.

We had an extremely nice, competent and dedicated skipper called Christian Clementi, and of course the Costa Smerelda was a beautiful place to be - albeit fairly crowded at high season and with moorings expensive. The weather was excellent and all in all we had a very good holiday. So thank you for your help and we remain catamaran fans. The base staff also seemed nice and efficient.

Our apologies for the delay in replying to you, after disembarking Silvia M we decided to extend our holiday and enjoy the high we were on. Our charter was fantastic, something we will never forget. Silvia M was immaculate, the crew were excellent, the food was great. We could give you a short story of eulogies and not be exaggerating, but suffice to say, we are very happy customers.

We would like to thank you for your part in arranging this trip for us. Your help and advice were invaluable and helped make for us, probably a once in our lifetime experience, such a success.

J & G.M (UK), SILVIA M crewed charter, Corsica & Sardinia 2013

I have nothing but good things to say about our trip! Everything ran seamlessly and just how I had planned. I was nervous before we went just because I was dealing with new companies and wasn’t sure what to expect. It couldn’t have gone any better.

Lora, Lilo, Giovanni and the rest of the staff in Portorosa were excellent. Check-in was so smooth and they even took the time to help us plan a route around the islands. Their local knowledge was invaluable.

They had made their own guide book for the islands giving detailed information on anchor points, snorkelling areas etc, it came in very handy. A lovely touch was on our first morning,they had coffee, juices and pastries for us. They really were a pleasure to deal with, even when we had a problem with the engine on one of the boats (sucked in a plastic bag), Giovanni came out came out to the island we were on and fixed it first thing in the morning. They also kept in contact with us via text if there was bad weather and advised us on the best plan for the day.

The boats were beautiful. The 393 didn’t have gps on deck which the skipper found difficult but apart from that we were very comfortable for the week.

The Aeolian Islands were a beautiful location and I will be back to visit the islands we didn’t manage to get to this time round.

As for yourself, Bob, you were extremely helpful. Without you we wouldn’t have gone to the Aeolian Islands! A huge thank you for that. You were a pleasure to deal with and always very swift in your responses to me. We had a total of 10 qualified skippers on our trip and they all took your company details and some were planning their own trips so hopefully you’ll get some more business out of us! If I organise another trip I will certainly be coming back to you, you made it very easy for me.
