Congratulations to the chefs!

A couple of our favorite motoryachts won top honors in the Concours de Chef Competition at the St.Maarten Charter Yacht Exhibition, Harmony and Touch.

Congratulations to Chef Cameron Feldman aboard HARMONY for winning First Prize. Captain Jack McKay and his crew of six, will be chartering this 2005/6 winter season in the Caribbean. They will return for their second summer in the Mediterranean and be available for charter beginning around the end of June 2006.

Harmony still has a few dates open for their Caribbean season, but we don't expect them to last long!
  • January 30 - February 12, 2006
  • March 5-13, 2006
  • May 2-15, 2006

Second Place in the Concours de Chef Competition was awarded to Chef Toni-Leann Butler of the motoryacht TOUCH

Touch is a 120-foot motor yacht which accommodates up to eight guests in four staterooms, each with King-size beds.

Touch, with Captain David Rutherford and his crew of six, will be based in the Caribbean this winter through the end of March 2006 and will be chartering in the Mediterranean for the summer 2006.

Paradise Connections attended the St. Maarten Charter Yacht Exhibition, that was held at the Yacht Club Port de Plaisance in Simpson Bay Lagoon, Sint Maarten, Netherland Antilles from December 5 to 8, 2005.

This was the second year of the annual event and we feel they did a very good job and hope more yachts will enroll in next year's charter yacht show (more sail boats please). Once again, the show offered free wi-fi and complementary continental breakfast. It is a great venue for the charter yacht show as the airport, hotels, and a wide variety of good restaurants are close by (as opposed to the Antigua show). The folks at the St. Maarten Charter Yacht Exhibition also provided free water taxi service to travel between the various marinas, plus they scheduled shuttles to transport brokers from their hotels to the show.

The evening events were fun and interesting... The Taste of St. Maarten evening allowed us to sample the fare of various, good restaurants from both the French side of St. Martin and the Dutch side of Sint Maarten, and we mustn't forget to also thank the companies that supplied beverages and open bar. The Yacht Hops are always enjoyable. M/Y Harmony definitely won the prize for most lively entertainment!

Thank you for a job well done. We look forward to next year's show!

Phaedrus is one of our favorite charter yachts with great accommodations and a fabulous crew. We love it when we are in the same port with them, as Charles is an excellent cook!
