    Reviews from our Carefree Clients

    A group of couples that we booked aboard 56' Catamaran Altesse in March, 2018 said:

    We had a really great time and loved the boat.

    Sarah and Richard were great hosts, delivering a boat in excellent condition and wonderful experiences, drinks and meals all week. We were fortunate to have great weather but did experience some huge swells coming in from the north that meant we had to adapt our itinerary on the fly but they were able to hit all the spots we wanted and keep in calm waters for virtually the entire trip. There were a few good sailing days and I actually got to spend a fair amount of time at the helm, which was amazing and unexpected.

    We were able to find a last minute replacement for Ross and Saskia. Our friend Jolyon, who we picked up at Norman Island on Monday. This was accommodated seamlessly and very much appreciated. One final comment - my wife signed her first book deal while on board and unprompted, Sarah produced a lovely celebration to mark the occasion, which my wife Kristine loved.

    All in all, a fantastic week. It's not easy to please 7 fairly different people but they did. While being very gracious and accommodating, Sarah and Richard run a tight ship (a good thing). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

    Thanks for your help in setting it all up.

    A family that we booked aboard 56' Catamaran Altesse in June, 2017 copied us in on this email to the crew:

    We had an awesome time with you guys!! Anna said it was her best trip EVER and we've tripped around quite a bit!!! The two of you are the ULTIMATE charter Captains!!! I can't imagine anyone being any better. Sarah, you are so incredibly capable of all you undertake. Rich, you're the Ultimate Captain- you were BORN to do this. The vessel was in absolutely perfect condition in every way both aesthetically and functionally. Altesse is ideal for its mission. She's awesome! You guys were so attentive to us, always thinking of ways to make it great for us. P.S. : If you ever need a referral for any reason, send them to me!

    Hi Lynne-

    The trip was fantastic! Rich and Sarah made sure our experience was everything we hoped for. Both were great with the kids! They made sure that they got to do all the watersports that they wanted and catered to our picker eater. Sarah even made them brownies and cookies during the week!

    Sarah's attention to detail was amazing. She paid close attention to the things we liked and didn't like... food, drink, activity and adjusted through-out the week accordingly. Rich was extremely knowledgeable about everything and so interesting to talk to. The boat was beautiful and really well cared for. Honestly couldn't ask for a better experience! Thank you so much for focusing us on this particular charter.

    Happy for you to sign us up for the newsletter.

    Thanks again for everything!
