Reviews for Braveheart with previous crew:

Jerry & Dawn were more attentive and accommodating that we could ever have anticipated. We felt very comfortable were incredibly well taken care of throughout our week on Braveheart. Dawn and Jerry worked amazingly long, hard days touring us around and keeping us fed and entertained. We even had Jerry take us water skiing and wakeboarding, which was an incredible experience.

Braveheart was even more nicely appointed than I expected. It is beautifully laid out and afforded us all a very comfortable experience. Having four full bathrooms with separate showers was very luxurious. Braveheart is also immaculately clean and obviously very well maintained. Dawn and Jerry worked tirelessly at keeping the boat clean and 'ship-shape'.

The food was a highlight of the trip for all. All of Dawn's meals and snacks were incredibly flavorful and imaginative. They were homemade, healthy and thoughtfully prepared to take into account our group's preferences. The chocolate gateau for Mary's birthday was gorgeous, delicious and a very special added touch. We loved the homemade cookies Dawn made us for lunches and we came to look forward to Jerry's tropical cocktails before dinner each day. Jerry's napkin-folding sessions were a fun and memorable part of our trip as well.

Our itinerary was fabulous. We covered a lot of ground, but were always relaxed. Jerry and Dawn took us to many beautiful spots including, Norman Island, Manchioneel Bay, Trellis Bay, Mountain Point and the North Sound of Virgin Gorda, Ginger Island, Peter Island and more. We loved learning about the areas we visited, the yachting life and sailing. Jerry also took us ashore on several occasions.

Jerry took us on nine incredible dives. We really enjoyed the experience of diving from and returning to our floating accommodation. The lionfish-hunting was a unique opportunity to try to fight for the health of the reef ecosystem. The onboard compressor affords great flexibility. Given the space constraints of a sailboat, Braveheart accommodates divers very well.

Our time aboard Braveheart was a singular experience for all of us. We had the trip of a lifetime. It was amazing to be able to do so much and to visit so many beautiful places without leaving the comfort of Braveheart. We recommend the experience to anyone looking for a luxurious, delicious and active sailing vacation.

We were very happy with Sailing Directions' service and felt very comfortable with all aspects of this, our first, chartering experience. We will definitely use Sailing Directions for any future charters and would not hesitate to recommend Sailing Directions and will do so whenever the opportunity arises.
