Charter Yacht Domicil : Client Comments Reviews

We would like to thank Hans & Christine of the charter yacht DOMICIL for the excellent time our clients had on their family's sailing vacation in January (2014).

Here's their comments:

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful charter aboard the Domicil. This is my 8th charter in the Caribbean and I must say it was the very best. We very much enjoyed the service of the crew, Hans and Christine. They truly pampered us and were so thoughtful with many little details.

Christine’s cooking is absolutely superb. Every meal was beautifully presented a true feast. Just when we thought we had seen the best, she came up with yet another dish to top the last…thanks so much Christine!

Hans is interesting and skillful as an Owner and Captain. He is so knowledgeable with a great sense of hospitality to make you feel at home. Both Hans and Christine take a personal interest in their guests, making them feel as if they are traveling among friends. Both make you feel as though you are on your own personal yacht and will do everything to ensure you have the time of your life.

The Domicil is a wonderful yacht. The millwork (from Holland) and the interior finishes are spectacular and it sails very comfortably. With two master cabins there is so much space you feel you are on 100 footer.

My other charters were in the northern Caribbean and these experiences have tended to blend into one another in my memory. The Bonaire and Curacao Island are more distinct and interesting than what we have experienced before. We enjoyed our trips ashore to explore the local culture after receiving expert site seeing advice from Hans and Christine. Hans also invited us for a captain’s lunch on the beach where we were surprised with beautiful fresh lobster for lunch…thank you Gijs of Porto Mari!

Hans’ local knowledge of the islands is formidable and whatever your request, he provides it with a phone call to one of the many connections on the island. We felt well cared for by all of the local companies we did excursions with.

Examples of Hans’ commitment to customer service:
  • At the last minute, we wanted to rent a Jeep on Bonaire and drive around the island but all were already rented out for the day. Not to be detoured, Hans contacted his acquaintance who was the owner of the tour shop to rent us his own luxury SUV…thank you Mark Dieperink!
  • In Curacao, we wanted to watch a NFL playoff game. Hans found a restaurant owned by an American couple who invited us over to watch the game. They were even kind enough to pick us up at the pier and drive us to and from the restaurant…thank you Mrs. Sunshine of the restaurant Solfood!

Looking back on our great charter, we would recommend the Domicil and her crew to anyone…”Hans and Christine, we will surely return to the Domicil and meanwhile, our invitation for you to visit us in Colorado stands!”

We are looking forward to seeing you again soon.
