Reviews from our Carefree Clients

A family that we booked aboard 50' Catamaran Nutmeg for New Years 2020-2021 said:


Bottom line: I would not hesitate to recommend Nutmeg or its crew to others.

Max and Whitey are very easy to be with, and were great with the children. We all enjoyed their company, and they made us feel at home on Nutmeg. The food was fantastic and varied. There were not many instances in which someone did not fully clean their plate. Max made special effort with the food for New Year’s Eve, with lobster for lunch and steak for dinner. She also accommodated our youngest child with her preferred chicken when seafood (not preferred by her) was served. We ate very, very well.

As you know, the crew agreed to take the “drop down” forward cabin, leaving the four main cabins in the rear for our family of five. I did not previously appreciate what a significant difference this would make. It made the boat feel larger for us than it otherwise would have felt and provided some privacy that we may not have had otherwise. Their willingness to accommodate guests in that way really makes a significant positive difference in the experience.

Thanks for setting us up with the Nutmeg and its crew. We had a great trip.

Richard M., Alabama


Max and Whitey (Maxine and John White) are entering their second season on Nutmeg but have over 20 years in the crewed yacht charter industry. Whitey is originally from Perth, Australia and Max from the mountainous state of Utah but they have made the Caribbean their home. After meeting in the San Francisco Bay Area and went sailing. They dropped their anchor in Cane Garden Bay, Tortola where they got married and then began their chartering career. They have hosted guests on large catamarans in the Virgin Islands, down the island chain and even a few years of ‘adventure chartering’
