CARABELLA - Superb charter motor yacht with a nice price

We have recently received a couple of great after-charter comments from clients we had aboard the motoryacht Carabella that we'd like to share with you.

If you do not know Carabella, perhaps we should tell you a bit about the yacht...

CARABELLA is a 48-foot motor yacht with the American crew of Jerry and Shary Monson, along with their cat, Pippi. Carabella is air conditioned and accommodates 2 guests in their aft stateroom which has a Queen-sized, walkaround berth and ensuite head/shower. For family charters, 2 kids can take the forward cabin (twin berths), and the crew will sleep in the curtained-off dinette. Carabella has a 9.5-foot dinghy with 15HP motor, windglider, snorkel equipment, fishing gear, floating mats, etc. Plus, they have Satellite TV in the salon and guest cabin so you won't miss your favorite shows or sports events while on vacation.

RATE: $6,500/week for 2 guests, all inclusive

As promised, here are the comments:
Dear Sheila and Bob,

Awesome vacation! One, if not “The Best” we have ever taken. From the moment Tricia and I boarded the Carabella and were greeted by Jerry and Shary, we knew that we had made the right decision and were clearly on our way to the beginning of a dream vacation.

They spoiled and pampered us everyday as they led us to the most beautiful sites throughout the US and British Virgin islands. During the day, our adventures took us to uninhabited beaches only reachable by boat and numerous coves, caves, snorkeling spots and coral reefs, which were filled with all types of colorful sea creatures, so many, we are still working to identify all the ones that we saw and had crossed our paths.
The daily excursions were thoroughly planned out with us in mind, knowing what our preferences were and understanding the type of vacation that we had sought out. They always kept the weather in mind, trying to bypass any rough seas out of respect for their guests. Their extensive knowledge of the environment, the area, along with excellent navigation skills, they were able to guide us into some very protected anchorages for calm nights. Their enthusiasm and experience as a Charter couple was very welcomed as we observed them and the skills they portrayed daily.
During the evenings, they provided expert guidance and recommendations for some of the hottest night spots, so we could enjoy some of the local beach bars, island beverages (Pain Killers) and experience some of the local traditions along with dancing and fun. Best of all, no worries for us, when we we’re ready to come back aboard, a simple call using the Marine radio is all we had to do and Jerry was on his way to pick us up.

I could go on and on as to the many wonderful experiences we had aboard the Carabella, but will end this reference letter with just a few more comments. The food was excellent and very plentiful. Shary spent a considerable amount of time and took great pride in planning something delicious, well balanced and different for each meal. The Beer was always cold, mixed drinks readily available upon request or simply there for us to make ourselves. One of the most important things of all, the company of Jerry and Shary was thoroughly enjoyable throughout the trip. We would recommend the Carabella and the Crew to anyone looking for an awesome vacation or a dream vacation as we were searching for.. Only a few days back to the ole grind, we are all ready looking forward to a return trip.
And more kind words...
Hello Sheila and Bob,

Thanks for everything! We had one of the best vacations ever!

Jerry and Shary were the perfect Captain and Admiral anyone could wish for.
Thoroughly enjoyable and fun to be around, not to mention all the pampering
and spoiling us on a daily basis. We could tell they take a lot of pride
in what they do and certainly take excellent care of the boat. I doubt if
we would ever board another boat for a vacation like this one, without the
Crew of the Carabella...
So, check out Carabella!
