Easter Charter 2016 - Caribbean
The Captain exceeded expectations in all respects. Laurances knowledge of the region, the boat and seamanship made for an extraordinary safe, smooth and fun trip. The service onboard will be remembered for its consistency, warmth and thoughtfulness.
One week on this yacht with this crew is the ideal holiday.

New Year's Charter 2015/16 - Caribbean
Laurance has a terrific knowledge of the area and options for anchorage. He exhibits a firm command of the crew and sailing, which put us at ease. He also took the time to teach our children some free diving techniques and was very patient with them. Anthon struck us a highly competent engineer as well. Gaelle is so very talented with table decorations that made our meals feel special and charming. She arranged great fun for the children on NY eve and a treasure hunt on our last day. Marina is a terrific bartender and always pleasant too.
Best of our 7 BVI charters.

Christmas Charter 2014/15 - Caribbean
I have never felt more confident in a captain. Laurance and his crew sail Ree like never before really appreciate the use of wind rather than engine. It was lovely to find such good snorkel masks and other gear this year. Fussy children were brilliantly catered for by the chef.

July Charter 2014 - Mediterrannean
The crew was warm, welcoming and spoiled us in every way. The food was beautifully presented, delicious, healthy and fun! Our food allergies were handled with ease. Cruising was wonderful, all that we had hoped for. It was a trip of a lifetime and we loved every minute.

This was by far the most pleasant experience Ive ever had. Growing up on boasts I thought I knew what to expect however this exceeded any and all of my expectations. Captain Laurance did a wonderful job in selecting a diverse and adventurous experience. While we loved Ree and the Spanish Isles, it wouldnt have been nearly as special without her WORLD CLASS crew!

June Charter 2014 - Mediterranean
I wanted to take the time to thank you and the crew for what an amazing two weeks. It was the best vacation that we have ever taken as a family (everyone agrees 100%).
The boat was amazing, the islands were amazing but the best thing about our vacation was the crew and the wonderful relationship that we developed with you all.
I have been in the hospitality business for 20+ years and I can say this, you guys are the best. Not only was everyone a consummate pro, you are all wonderful people.
My family is very fortunate to have met you all and we hope someday that our paths cross again!
We would love to keep in touch so if you could send us everyone's email, we would appreciate. Feel free to give mine out too.
Let us know if anyone is ever in our part of the world, we would love to host you at our house.

February 2014 - Caribbean
Laurance was the most hands-on and engaging captain we have had on all 5 Caribbean cruises. We enjoyed the cruising area, especially snorkelling in Pigeon Island. We appreciated the variety of options for lunch and the lovely table arrangements.

We had a great time on REE. The crew were a pleasure to be with, the food excellent, the first mate an absolute rock, the stewardesses incredibly efficient, the engineer keeps the whole complex machinery working and the captain runs a tight ship. All of them could not have been nicer, they were great. And of course in all aspects REE is a very comfortable yacht - comfortable to be on and to sail.
Thanks for setting us up with a great cruise. Until the next one

The client's Personal Assistant . . . said that it was a huge success. Everyone had a great time. One of the guests who always has something (critical) to say . . . said that the food and service was better than any 5 star restaurant or resort that they have been to.
The crew took excellent care of them; very concerned and caring.
So, I would like to thank you for taking such good care of my clients, and if you ever need a referral, please give my name and number.
You hit it out of the ballpark!!!
Feedback from the broker --
Two weeks - Christmas 2012/New Year 2013
It was a fantastic charter and Mr G was very impressed with Captain Matt he said that Matt is a real yes guy, meaning that nothing was too much trouble and Matt was keen to do anything to make the guests happy. He also adored Nadines food.
The charter was fantastic!
The boat was beautiful and immaculate.
All party commented that the brochure doesn't do her justice; maybe something that needs looking at!
All crew worked extremely hard to ensure we had a great time and were very sociable.
Looking forward already to the next one.

"Captain and Crew, Absolutely fabulous sailing every day! Fantastic food, tremendous hospitality, and great fun with all the toys. This was the third year in a row sailing in the Caribbean and the best, with wonderful weather, winds and warmth. We will take back many magic moments. Many thanks!"
