Yachting and Sailing service with a bow (and a stern) In so many of our carefully selected caribbean destinations, we mention the beauty of the ocean, the clarity of the water, the sheer joy and relaxation of being beside the sea and the stunning sunsets to be seen from your hotel.
But we also know that there is one place from which the views are even more dazzling, from your boat looking out over the far horizon or back to the luxuriant tropicality of the islands. We strive always to find the very best hotels and hideaways for you and this attention to detail continues with the cruising and chartering choices we select. Of course we only pick luxury vessels where comfort, service, quality and of course safety are the watchwords.
Cabins are lavishly appointed and fully equipped to ensure that all you need, you have. There is all the entertainment equipment you can think of from Bose sound systems iPod dock and flatscreen TVs to windsurfs, snorkelling and diving gear and fishing kit. From hammocks to jet skis, Jacuzzis to Playstations, whatever you most want you’ll find it on at least one of the beautiful craft we recommend.
The flotilla we have chosen, including Necker Belle and SeaDream, all offer everything that the perfect time onboard needs. Their staff are of course highly trained and hugely professional, but perhaps more importantly, they understand that this is your holiday and that their aim is to make it one that you will always remember. You may not have considered a holiday afloat before, many haven’t, but those that do come back time and again. Doesn’t that tell you something?
