Charter Catamaran MATAU has "New Crew"

We have received an email from Virginia Wagner and Jamie Stark, former crew of catamaran True North, that they are now crewing aboard the 74-foot Privilege catamaran, MATAU. Great news! Read on...

We are very pleased to announce that we will be taking over MATAU on October 1, 2009. This beautiful new Privilege 74.5 is the premier catamaran in the Caribbean this winter and the only 74.5 available for charter in the world! Your guests will enjoy a new level of exclusivity in MATAU’s luxury 5-star interior.

MATAU CREW - Jamie MATAU CREW - Virginia

We have enjoyed the past fifteen months aboard TRUE NORTH and we are delighted to continue working with the owners of the luxury catamarans TRUE NORTH and MATAU, and look forward to the years ahead.

During our tenure on TRUE NORTH, we completed fourteen charters, three boat shows, seven owner weeks, twelve weeks of maintenance / haul out and nearly 10,000 nautical miles – all in spite of a sluggish world economy. We even found the time to sail MATAU across the pond from the Med! So you can be secure in the fact that we have sailed many miles on MATAU and that we know her systems well.

MATAU fun - Hat partyWe have always worked very hard to ensure that our charter guests enjoy a memorable and care free charter experience with us. We enjoy the fact that we have become known among charter brokers for creating a truly unique experience for your clients. Some of the personal touches that we have shared with charter guests during our time on TRUE NORTH are “Idol Night” -- where everyone is a star!, hat parties -- everyone makes a hat from scratch, a good old fashioned game of charades, an elegant beach barbecue, a pirate treasure hunt – planned for the kids -- but the parents seemed to enjoy it more!, “TRUE NORTH Oscar Night”, sports playoffs, and even a special appearance from Elvis himself! We have never had a guest turndown an invitation to one of these fun adventures.

MATAU Crew - Chef & Stewardess

At this time we are pleased to introduce to you the two new crew who are joining us on board MATAU -- chef Patrick Labrosse and stewardess Yuliya Miroshnyk -- an impressive team! Both have extensive motor yacht experience and together we look forward to combining the elegance and luxury of MATAU with an International crew and first class service. We will of course continue offering the unique style of charter that we are known for and that our guests love, but taken to a new level on board MATAU.

MATAU & TRUE NORTH continue to share the same dedication to guest service and luxurious sailing charters throughout the Caribbean, representing two different price points to offer to your clients. You may be confident that your clients will always enjoy Matau's and True North's tradition of good care and excellent service.

Thanks! We look forward to visiting both Matau and True North at the Antigua Charter Yacht show in December.

By the way... Matau is already booked for the holidays, but as of this posting, True North is available for a New Year's charter in the British Virgin Islands beginning on December 28th or thereafter!
