What Our Carefree Clients Said About Us

A family group that we booked aboard 52' Southern Comfort in tandem with 2 other yachts for New Years 2021-2022 said: Lynne at Carefree was excellent at listening and delivering. She kept the momentum going in what turned out to be a full year of planning and prepping for 19 of us on this trip. She was very thorough and helped us better understand just how special these kinds of vacations can be. Well done!! Mike C., Connecticut

Reviews from our Carefree Clients

A group of couples that we booked aboard 52' Catamaran Southern Comfort in April 2022 said:

Lynne … 

We had the most AMAZING trip with Ish and Julia … everything about them and the boat was fabulous. Food was phenomenal … preparation and presentation was as good as any high end restaurant I have ever been to. Boat was immaculate. I personally have no feedback on how to improve the product other than I told Ish and Julia that they need a “marketing” video of some sort as you can’t appreciate their personalities with their current web presence. I would not hesitate booking Southern Comfort or Ish / Julia as crew on any charter. 110% satisfied customer.

Your advice on the best way to approach this and all communication was spot on … other than a few minor self imposed issues it all went off without any problems and exactly as you presented. I appreciated the web based preference sheet and all the additional information that is available on your web page. 110% satisfied customer.

Thanks again for directing me to Southern Comfort and Ish / Julia … I am attaching a picture and I think our collective smiles affirm how much fun we all had !!! … we are “old friends that made new memories” !!!

Hi Lynne -

We had a fantastic experience - topped all expectations!!

Carefree Yacht Charters: Lynne at Carefree was excellent at listening and delivering. She kept the momentum going in what turned out to be a full year of planning and prepping for 19 of us on this trip. She was very thorough and helped us better understand just how special these kinds of vacations can be. Well done!!

Southern Comfort: The whole family considered this to be a once in a lifetime kind of vacation and I have to say that it was one of the fastest seven day vacations that I have ever experienced. Julia and Ish and the Southern Comfort catamaran did not disappoint. They made us feel comfortable from our first planning conversation to our first step onto the Southern Comfort and each and every day until it was time to sadly say goodbye. The food - holy moly can Julia cook! We ate three delicious (and kind of healthy!) meals a day and each and everyone of them was outstanding. What a surprise it was to get that kind of cooking out and about the USVI's! The sailing - Ish is a terrific captain and made us feel safe and sound on both the SoCo and its dingie! Ish was also very patient with our questions and responded very deliberately yet in ways that were easy to understand. We really felt that Julia and Ish were a great combination and complemented one another very well. We would give them 5 out of 5 stars and highly recommend them to future vacationers.
