"In a word, our experience was exceptional. The Vessel, Lady Alliaura, was in absolutely first-class condition, providing an abundance of space for our party of eight and crew of four. The air-conditioning, particularly for the staterooms, made the nights very comfortable. The layout of the afterdeck where we dined and spent most of our time under sail and the visibility and layout of the upper deck, salon, and staterooms exceeded all of our party’s expectations.
The Crew were engaging, pleasant and focused on providing each guest with a unique and remarkable experience. The Captain, Sebastian Leclerc, was a deliberate, accomplished and composed seaman with strong leadership skills. The mate, Caroline, was an accomplished sailor with a good sense of humor. The chef, Laurent, possessed an unusually good humor since he spent most of his time in the galley preparing meals fit for a king. The hostess, Celine, was intuitive, gracious and very attentive to everyone in our party.
The Experience overall was exceptional to any of my prior chartering efforts. The legs of our itinerary were well laid out with thoughtful consideration for the comfort of our party as it related to selection of anchorages, sails and time on the open water, the high point of which was a gorgeous night sail from Barbuda to the eastern side of St. Maarten.
Our entire party of eight, without exception, thoroughly enjoyed our adventure and will certainly look forward to another opportunity to sail on Lady Alliaura with her exceptional crew at some future date.
And to you, John, a tip of the hat for the professionalism and assistance you provided me in organizing and preparing for each member of our party’s comfort, menu preferences and special meal requests, recommendations on packing, and arrival/departure from Lady Alliaura. I’m appreciative of your efforts on our behalf. For years to come, each member of our party will fondly remember the crew, the vessel and our time aboard Lady Alliaura."

"The Crew on Steppin' Up are amazing - they go above and beyond every step of the way. We cannot say enough good things about them. They are friendly, attentive and accommodating! From the minute we arrived when they were waiting in the parking lot for us, had a wonderful lunch already prepared, to the very end when they took us back to town before having to catch our flight. We felt completely spoiled and confident in Bill and Michelle.
Bill is a calm, cool, collected and very knowledgeable captain - but with a fun sense of humor and easy going/relaxed spirit. Michelle is not only a fabulous chef, but always made sure everything was always so clean, tidy, picked up and you didn't even realize they were doing it. They looked out for us - our safety and enjoyment. They were so easy to get along with and feel instantly comfortable with - we lucked out!!
The boat was very comfortable, clean and well ventilated. It was also well equipped from big toys to little things like games and extra supplies.
The food was delicious! All of it made from scratch and wholesome. Michelle always had a snack ready, fresh fruit, wonderful meals, always offering something to drink. Everything was with a smile and she never showed any stress or effort - it all just magically happened. She was very accommodating with our son who has a gluten and dairy intolerance. Michelle is a pro and always has a smile on her face, a kind word and a helpful attitude. I will be trying to copy many of her dishes for a long time to come!
The itinerary was spot on to what we expected and actually exceeded our expectations. They seemed to have a knack at finding the quieter space or the best mooring or the perfect snorkeling or swimming hole. We were very pleased at our destinations and appreciated them listening to things we really wanted and working the schedule to fit in with our requests. Bill is really a captain to trust and again was so knowledgeable about the islands was a very gracious host.
Abundant comfortable lounging areas - in the bow, the trampolines have nice cushy head pillows, there are 2 comfy lounge mats and then 2 benches and a seat that are also fitted with very comfortable and attractive cushions. The cockpit and cabins are also very welcoming and comfortable.
We loved that they were at this lovely marina that was so easy to get to/access and welcoming. It made the whole transition on and off the boat much easier!
Bill and Michelle go above and beyond making sure each one in our family gets to do what they love to the most. They also had fun things for our boys ready for them - little basketball hoops for their cabins, treasure chests full of candy, etc. They were just a joy to be with and it was easy and fun - a trip of a lifetime!
Sailing Directions was great to deal with and the process was very smooth. Thank you for everything."
