Gary (ex-Lady Jane) Returns to Charter Yacht GALATEA

Here is some happy news! While David of Glory of Christiansted is retiring, Gary Messick who you may remember from the Gulfstar 50 charter yacht Lady Jane that they owned & chartered in the Virgin Islands, has returned!
Gary returns to charter - Contact Yacht Charters to book GALATEA
GALATEA is a 2002 47-foot Beneteau sloop. It's a three stateroom layout, lots of deck space and a very spacious cockpit with a walkthru to the swim platform.

Galatea is offering all-inclusive charters in the Virgin Islands, with a crew of one (Captain Gary). This includes the yacht, captain, all meals aboard and standard ship's bar, and use of boat's amentities/toys. Gary is willing to cook, although he'll allow the charterers to do so, too. If you'd prefer, you can have an additional crew member/chef on board for an extra $700/week.

RATES (All inclusive with captain only, 2nd crew/chef additional $700/wk), beginning Dec.2009:
  • $4,900/wk for 2 guests (plus BVI taxes)
  • $6,400/wk for 4 guests (plus BVI taxes)
  • $3,800/wk for 2 guests, and $4,900 for 4 guests (plus BVI taxes). Fully provisioned, but only captain as crew.
  • June, July, August 2009 charters: Kids under 16 at time of charter are FREE. This means that a family of FIVE (3 kids in a cabin or 3rd kid on settee in salon) can book a charter for only $3800... Such a deal!
We've had many happy charters with Lady Jane in the past and we are very happy that Gary has returned to charter. Where's Jane? She is up at their place in Florida and involved with a couple of business up there. Plus, someone has to take care of the kitty cats (we certainly understand that one!).

Gary is a Dive Master and is offering 5 dives/week for certified divers at $150/diver. You can bring your own gear or rent from a local dive shop which Gary can arrange.
Don't wait too long as we expect Gary to book up quickly once the word gets out!
