Testimonials:

To say that the group had a truly amazing time would be an understatement.  They were thrilled and overjoyed! They loved every minute onboard CLAIRE.  The service from the crew was top notch. They want to steal Dario. The food was loved by all. The chef passed a difficult test be greatly pleasing my wife.  She has her own food blog, wins numerous cooking competitions, and has qualified & competed in the Wood Food Championships for the last three years.  The watersports were also great. Congratulations Kevin and to your amazing crew.

Best birthday EVER! The charter exceeded our expectations and the crew were amazing. They decorated the yacht and everything was perfect. Captain Colin was awesome and every crew member went above and beyond. All of the food and the birthday cake were excellent. On our way to Palm Beach, Captain Colin took us to a shipwreck off Boynton Beach. Out came the Seabobs for our family to have one more dip in the ocean. We experienced wildlife and many laughs as an added bonus. Thanks to Captain Colin and crew for going above and beyond.​

I would like to personally thank Pila Pexton for being an absolute pleasure to work with getting this last minute charter together without a hitch. We worked in tandem with Captain Colin to not miss a beat. Pila, you were very responsive and I really appreciate you and your team’s hard work from start to finish. Captain Colin, what great foresight to book dockage at Miami Beach Marina during one of the biggest yacht shows. Thank you for taking my calls all weekend prior to the charter, allowing me to preview CLAIRE, and plan the charter with the principle via conference call. Your attention and suggestions for this 24 hour charter was as if it were a term charter. Finally, I asked the client if they will charter CLAIRE again and the response was “absolutely”. Pila, feel free to send any brokers my way for reference for charters on Claire, Captain Colin and crew.

My client expressed that despite the weather not being perfect, they had a great time aboard CLAIRE in the Exumas! The guests loved the layout of the yacht, crew, and amenities aboard; enjoying everything it had to offer. Should also mention that being heavily involved in the food industry (and having unique dietary requirements), they loved the Chef and only had excellent remarks, enjoying every meal aboard. They would consider chartering her again, and I can certainly recommend the boat to others!

Charter going very well and the clients are very happy. The captain and his crew are doing an excellent job. The charterer is an experienced Feadship owner and is very happy. They want to charter CLAIRE more in the Bahamas. They really like the Pullman berth for their grandchild.
