It was tremendous! Captain Timothy has a great team and although I know our parties are taxing on them, we had a lot of fun with the team. I think they had a good time too.

I just wanted to tell you that our week on LADY VICTORIA was a great success and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. We did not get to travel around very much due to strong winds, but saw some beautiful places and had fun with our larger group of friends on other yachts. We got on very well withCaptain Tim and he and the rest of the team looked after us perfectly. As I now reflect back on our week, I wanted to say thank you for your help in organizing it all.

LADY VICTORIA exceeded expectations. It was spotless and spacious and the crew was constantly cleaning and maintaining the vessel. Our beds were comfortable, each stateroom had a TV and a bathroom, and closet space was ample. Captain Tim was very friendly and knowledgeable. He explained options for sailing times based on the weather. Each meal made by Gaylinn was terrific! Our boys especially looked forward to breakfast, and also her special treats after a long day of touring on the island. She made a point of learning what each of us liked and crafted dinners to please everyone. Emily always had a smile on her face! She is a delightful young lady who seemingly did it all! She cleaned for us, did laundry, served meals, had drinks at the ready when we returned to the boat, and interacted with us and our guests in a friendly and professional manner. Thank you again for a wonderful experience!

The trip was great. LADY VICTORIA was, if anything, better than her pictures. Beautifully maintained and the accommodations were perfect. To a person, the crew were professional, helpful and a pleasure to be around. Capt. Tim was extremely capable, knowledgeable, low-key and relaxed and very available to us. He provided really good restaurant suggestions and reservations along with a few very special activities (and yes, we tied up to the dock in Nantucket.) We wouldn’t change a thing. It was from start to finish a great experience.

Best crew ever, Captain Tim is superb. The retrofit to LADY VICTORIA makes her a much better vessel plus all the new toys added.
We are blown away…

Another outstandingly superb time on board LADY VICTORIA for our family! We thank you and the fine crew and applaud the boat's most superb face lift.Captain Tim, you have put this fine yacht into the wonderful category with other fine yachts. We admire your capability and attention to detail, and most of all, your sense of safety and security.
We are already looking forward to being onboard next year.

Captain Tim – now that we are home we are all re-living the fantastic vacation you and the crew gave us. The boat was fantastic, but the crew was even better! The level of service was incredible and it seemed like everyone anticipated our needs without us having to ask for anything. I hope we can get on the water again together. We also hope we can see you in St.Barth in the spring. It will be here before you know it.
