    Reviews from our Carefree Clients

    A group of couples that we booked aboard 62' Catamaran Luar in May, 2018 said:

    Lynne,

    Everything was fantastic. Your service was great. Rich and Lisa were awesome. Their attention to details was greatly appreciated. The food was excellent with beautiful decorations at dinner every night. Rich asked us what our priorities were before we left and he charted the perfect trip for us. Lisa was always taking care of us with everything we needed. We would do it again with them any opportunity we have in the future.

    Thanks again to you for your efforts in finding us a boat.

    Hi Lynne....

    We had a fantastic time on the Luar with Rich and Lisa! We have you to thank for saving our trip after the our "first yacht" had engine trouble. Rich and Lisa made us feel like royalty with the special care that they gave us. Rich's skills as a captain AND a chef were incredible (he has it down juggling between sailing and cooking). Lisa made sure our rooms were always sparkling clean and she knows how to make killer painkillers and bushwackers (so I hear as I didn't imbibe). They even made sure Steve was supplied with his very hard to find special tequila. Lisa's design background showed with her beautiful centerpieces...a different one every night. They also had special birthday hats and decorations because they heard we were celebrating birthdays. We covered a lot of territory...much more than we did on our trip 20 years ago and we sailed a lot more. All in all it really was the trip of a lifetime. MK, California

    Hi Lynne!

    We had a wonderful experience, Rich and Lisa were fantastic! They made the trip effortless, taking care of everything for us (daily stops that everyone enjoyed, inflatable rafts, music...) including delicious meals that satisfied the meat eaters and veggie folks, and don't get us started on "snack"! And, they are a pleasure to spend time with, we came a little nervous that we may not click and left the boat having made two new friends that we hope to see again on or off the boat!

    Luar was perfect, some of best memories we have are our time spent on the fly bridge chatting with Rich and Lisa, to sitting up front in the morning sun. And the accommodations we very nice, the room and bathroom were always clean, comfy and cool.

    I could go on, and if the folks are unsure about the new crew...to say we'd follow them to whichever boat they were on, about sums it up!

    Lynne,

    I think Kimber summed it up perfectly. I also really enjoyed conversations with Rich & Lisa & learning about the BVI. They have incredible knowledge & great stories & that, in my opinion, really made the trip for me. I love learning about the history of places we travel to & they definitely checked that box for me. The food & service were top notch. They somehow made being waited on hand & foot very comfortable for us - not awkward or invasive at all - they know what they're doing for sure - I would highly recommend them for anyone making this trip. Can you send me the link to the e-newsletter? I'd love to subscribe to it.

    Thank You,

    Pat K., Georgia

    Having been on a crewed chartered sail in the BVI before I have to admit that my expectations were very high for this trip, the Luar and the crew. All far exceeded those expectations! The boat was the perfect size and layout for our group and was meticulously maintained. The activities - snorkeling, tubing, kayaking, paddle boarding etc were great fun and Lisa and Rich made sure we had plenty of opportunities to do any/all of them each day. Of course we also enjoyed the shore excursions, who doesn't love a fun beach bar! The food....WOW! It was fabulous and plentiful! The crew...Lisa and Rich were phenomenal! They made the trip special and not a detail slipped past them. We enjoyed getting to know them and hearing their many stories and experiences and interesting facts about the BVI. I can't imagine another crew being able to surpass the service, fun, food and professionalism that the two of them provided...would follow them on any boat!

    Thanks!

    The cruise was amazing. Made so by the fantastic Jon and Sam. I can't believe a 27 year old cooks like a Beard awarded chef. And Jon tucked us front and center at the Soggy Dollar. Every day was a great day and the kids had a great time. Although I think we had to leave so the crew could get some rest. And yes, we went through all of the champagne...
