Charter Yacht ANTILLEAN - Guest Comments / Client Reviews

Here are comments we received from recent charterers aboard Antillean, a 50-foot Beneteau sloop, in January 2010.

Hi Sheila and Bob,

Stephanie and I returned from VI yesterday.

Our trip was absolutely outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute.  The Antillean is exceptionally capable and extremely well maintained.  We were able to handle her in all conditions and enjoyed the thrill of the high winds to the sublime gentle runs downwind.  Antillean performed extremely well and we felt very comfortable in the capable and knowledgeable hands of John and Heidi.  It is remarkable to see two people who can work so collaboratively on board without a word and make everything appear so effortless.

I also want to note that John and Heidi are master hosts!  Our meals aboard were all at a level of 5 star hotel.  We absolutely love Heidi's meals.  Heidi could just as easily be the master chef in any of the top NY restaurants -  bar none and it was an absolute pleasure to have her all to ourselves.

Quite simply, every aspect was perfect - music, wine, snorkeling, hiking, day dreaming, reading, or talking to John about various aspects of boat handling and maintenance.  With most of his life on the water through the navy and cruising, John's knowledge is encyclopedic!

And of course there is Smee.  What a wonderful character and lovely traveling companion.  We became so attached to him - its incredible.  We miss his cheerful commentary and can't stop talking about him.  No boat should be without the wonderful company of a parrot.

Thank you very much for recommending Antillean.  We are delighted!  We feel fortunate to have found you and followed your recommendation.

Aydin and Stephanie
