Customer Reviews

Karen says,

“It was a truly memorable day on a wonderful boat - a real 5* day out and we would all recommend it to anyone who asked...we are all looking forward to booking again for next year!”

Hugh comments...

“Firstly, thank you so much for a great day out and on such a lovely boat, which was immaculate. Your seamanship was excellent and you clearly know what you are doing as a skipper.

Everyone really enjoyed themselves and we got a good feel from it and we bonded as a Team, all which was my objective. I cannot believe we escaped the weather but I guess a little luck helps.

I shall certainly be in contact again when we next want to put to sea as it was enchanting.

Please thank Jan for all her hard work and effort serving us all day and for smiling all the time whilst doing it! We shall work hard in our endeavours so we can afford to come out on “Aruba”, so thank you again.”

Nige's family day out...

“5* star luxury from start to finish. Splashed out on a trip to the Isle of Wight for a special birthday treat and so glad we did!

It was an amazing experience. Richard, the boat owner and Nick were professional and really wanted us to have a good time… The facilities at Lymington Yacht Club were second to none.

A unique 5* star experience, not to be missed!”
