What Our Carefree Clients Said About Us

A family that we booked aboard 52' Catamaran Island Hoppin' in February, 2018 said: I can't say enough about this vessel. We suffered no boat envy in any of the mooring fields we visited and I would occasionally just walk about the deck touching things and feeling pride in just having the sense to go with such a vessel even though it was mostly a combination of just luck and your good work in getting me there. I'd be surprised if your ears were not burning during our charter as Sus, Jamie and I were all talking about your professionalism and other great qualities during the charter. I've already given out your name and company to interested people. Your most loyal customer, Rob Hoffman, USCG licensed Master 1600 tons, 2nd Mate unlimited, oceans

    Reviews from our Carefree Clients

    A group of couples that we booked aboard 52' Catamaran Island Hoppin' in June 2018 (and in tandem with 65' Catamaran Kelea') said:

    Everything was amazing - working with Lynne at Carefree Yacht Charters, our boat" Island Hopper" was gorgeous and very roomy, our crew (Jamie and Susanna) made us feel at home and took great care of us, the food was to die for, the places we visited were awesome. We enjoyed getting to ride tandem with the Kelea and getting to know the crew Dan & Allie. Great people too. I would recommend this trip to everyone!

    Karen S., Texas

    Lynne, please add us to your newsletter and have the following feedback: Trip was very well planned out, great communication all around prior and leading up to the departure day. Jamie and Susannah were great, we couldn't have asked for better Captain and Chef/First Mate. They were very accommodating for any of our needs and knowledgeable about all aspects of our trip. Very relaxing, stress free, beautiful beaches and waters.

    Connie W., Texas

    What a trip! This vacation was better than expected and we expected a lot! Our boat was beautiful and our Captain Jamie and Chef Susanna were TOP NOTCH. As a non-seafood eater, I was pleasantly surprised at how wonderful the food was. They looked after us and made sure we had a great time. The boat was so relaxing and the islands were beautiful. Already want to plan another trip. Thank you Jamie and Susanna!

    A multi-repeat friends and family group that we booked aboard 52' Catamaran Island Hoppin' in April, 2018 said:

    Hi Lynne,

    I wanted to send you a more complete review of our time with Jamie and Susannah on Island Hoppin'. Probably the best way is to break it down by category. Let me know if I've missed anything!

    The Boat:

    Island Hoppin' is a beautiful boat with great living space and is so nicely appointed with obvious extras (like the miles of teak decking). The cabins are spacious and comfortable. The ensuite heads are convenient and more like a regular home toilet than any other boat we've been on. Making water on board is great. There was always plenty of water for everyone to have a warm shower at the end of a fun day. The master cabin is fantastic. So much storage and space. A quiet generator and plenty of AC made all of the cabins very comfortable for sleeping. The real jewel of this boat is the outdoor living space. The fly bridge seating was our go-to spot day and night. The extra seating on the bow is a fantastic addition as well. The layout makes the boat feel incredibly spacious and luxurious.

    The Crew:

    Where do I start? Jamie and Susannah are amazing. As a team they work so easily together. They have a real partnership that makes their incredibly hard work look easy.

    Jamie is a very competent captain and knowledgeable sailor. We always felt safe and it was very clear that Jamie knows every inch of the boat and all its systems inside and out. He was able to seamlessly reef sails while navigating a squall that blew at 34 knots while lowering fly bridge curtains to keep us dry and comfortable and a few minutes later was serving coffee on deck. All with a smile and a "my pleasure". When he's not at the helm (and sometimes while he is), he is a fantastic bar tender. His Pain Killers were better than the ones at any beach bar. He made us signature cocktails (full strength for adults and virgins for Katie) of all different types. Coffee and tea we're waiting each morning and were made to each persons preference after only asking once on day one. A man of many talents for sure.

    Susannah has the talent of a chef with many, many more years of experience. Every meal was fresh, delicious and healthy (not always an easy combination) and plated beautifully. Susannah had to work extra hard for us to accommodate Katie's gluten, dairy and soy intolerance. She made every meal for Katie to look like whatever anyone else was having so she didn't feel like she was missing out or different. Katie loved every bit and it was a true vacation for me not having to worry about what Katie was eating! As for all of the adults meals... WOW. Three times a day, every day, Susannah hit it out of the park. A few group favorites: sweet corn cakes with fried eggs; pancakes with banana and bacon; beef poke bowl with fresh mango; salmon with pea and parsley pure; filet mignon with roasted potatoes and asparagus that could have been served in any of Manhattan's finest restaurants. And the desserts. Holy cow! We are still talking about Susannah's Banoffee cake (her Granny's recipe). Susannah cooked her heart out and always did so with a smile.

    Obviously the crew is more than competent and take great pride in providing a luxury guest experience... but they were also a delight to spend time with. We truly hope to keep in touch with our new, lovely friends.

    Carefree Yacht Charters: Lynne... you have steered us to 4 amazing weeks so far and will always be our first call when it's time to go again (which we can't wait to do). The crew on every charter we've been on always rave about you as their favorite broker as well. Thank you for making these trips so easy and for steering us to fantastic crews and boats like Island Hoppin'!

    Thanks again Lynne. We are really hoping to sail with Jamie and Susannah again in the near future.

    Best,

    Lisa R., Connecticut

    Lynne, Jamie and Susannah -

    Just wanted to make sure that we got back to you with our review for the charter. Thank you again for a wonderful time.

    Our family started looking into and planning a chartered sailing trip a year ago. We knew we wanted to sail in the British Virgin Islands, as we had done 30 years prior. In doing our research on charter companies we found Carefree Yacht Charters and Lynne. Lynne was a pleasure to work with; her professionalism and knowledge about the yachts she represented was impressive. She worked closely with us to find a yacht that would be the right fit for our family of 6 that included two teenagers, 13 and 15. When Hurricane Irma hit the islands Lynne kept in regular contact with us and provided timely updates about the yacht we had booked for our February trip. Unfortunately, the yacht we had chosen was not able to sail after all due to damage from the hurricane. In the midst of the damage and recovery efforts, Lynne went above and beyond to find the perfect yacht and crew for our trip. After attending the November Boat Show in St. Thomas, she recommended Island Hoppin' for our trip. We went forward with her recommendation and couldn't be happier with our choice.

    Captain Jamie and First Mate/Chef Susannah were excellent to have as our crew. They were so accommodating and welcoming. Jamie went over an itinerary for the week with options for changes if weather became a problem. He took care in making sure our trip made room for water sports, beach time and island exploring, diving and snorkeling. We appreciated Jamie's diving expertise and skills as he took both teens through the resort diving course enabling us all to dive together. What a wonderful experience! We all took advantage of the water sports and Jamie never tired of taking the kids and adults tubing and wake-boarding. For our shore excursions, we appreciated how Jamie and Susannah arranged for water taxis, land taxis, and other reservations to make sure we were able to make the best use of our time and take advantage of the special island excursions. Our meals aboard Island Hoppin' were superb! Each meal Susannah made was creative, beautifully presented, and delicious (nothing short of gourmet restaurant)! We appreciated her dedication in the galley preparing wonderful treats for us. Jamie was an excellent bartender offering wine selections for our meals and tasty cocktails. Jamie and Susannah worked so well together and made us feel so comfortable. Although, we are back home, we will never forget our outstanding charter on the beautiful ISLAND HOPPIN' with Captain Jamie and First Mate/Chef Susannah! Thank you for the wonderful memories!

    CHEERS!
