"The crew were amazing. Absolutely exceeded our expectations. We were a bit nervous about it as we had not done a charter before and since it was just the two of us it was important that we spent the week with nice people. They were super fun and friendly and certainly made us feel very comfortable. They accommodated our needs and were flexible to adjust things as the week went on. Can’t say enough good things about them. Learned a lot from Greg about sailing in blue water and we had a great, relaxing vacation.
The boat was immaculate and they keep it in incredible shape and very clean.
The food was fabulous – Vanessa is a very good cook and she was very creative. Great tastes, fresh food and beautifully presented. Very talented.
The BVIs is beautiful area we have not been before and will definitely go back. We will definitely be doing another trip in future – hopefully next year."

"Everything was beyond exceptional. Food, itinerary, activities, boat etc. Graeme, Lauren and Zayne were unbelievable hosts. I would have no issue making a recommendation for either the crew or the boat."

"Our family thought everything about Gareth & Kristine was fantastic. They literally waited on us every hour we were awake. We felt guilty because of how hard they were working all the time. They absolutely understood our needs and concerns: From picky eaters with the kids to Mindi being concerned about rough seas. They continually optimized the itinerary to take into account potential weather and also learned more about our preferences as the first couple of days developed. We can’t imagine anything more they could have done.
Being aboard the Xenia, a Privilege 61.5 foot boat, was clearly a “top of the line” yacht! As we drove around other, similar sized boats during the week – we came to realize how “high end” the Privilege line is: More classic wood, less plastic, teak flooring on the outside vs just fiberglass, more high end electronics (Apple TV), TV’s in every state room, etc, etc. A very, very nice yacht!
Kristine was incredible! It was always a sit down, being served meal. From others that had chartered on other boats, I was expecting some food to be “set out, sorta buffet style”. The food was great each and every time. We commented a few times how we want her recipes and that she needs to publish a cook book! Everything seemed to be from scratch, example: she personally “glazed” pecans with her own candied mixture for a salad one day. The list is too numerous to mention.
It was just a wonderful experience and Gareth and Kristine were great! We can’t say enough good things. We definitely will call you if we consider chartering again. "
