Chloe worked for several NGOs and actually used to be a University Professor and has worked over the world; from Borneo to the Canary Islands.

Chloe & Stefan have been hosting professional charters together for 7 years and also won runners up best in show at the BVI boatshow.

Fan mail for the crew of KING'S RANSOM

We want you to know that our cruise was the BEST EVER trip we have ever taken. It was a blast!

I can't believe I was worried about the children running out of things to do and our family being too close for a week to ever speak to each other again. Quite the opposite!

You kept us moving discovering,playing, sightseeing,shopping, doing card tricks and eating (Oh yes, we did enjoy eating at breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner).

You kept our itinerary running smoothly for the whole family - all ages, all interests and all already formed ideas. A time for everybody and that's not easy! You never disappointed, only impressed. 

We hope to catch up with you one day and continue our new friendship. Keep in touch.

Sincerely, 
Bobby, Mary, Bonnie, Tom, Thomas, Connor, Mary Louise, Reese and Gracie.



I can’t say enough how amazing of a trip this was…like I said “the trip of a lifetime I want to take again next year!!!” Thank you for sharing your skills with us, from cooking, setting tables, sailing and the general ways of the BVI seas, it was absolutely phenomenal. There were so many great moments along our 9 night journey it is hard to pick only a few. New experiences for the kids and us, seeing the kids learn without being instructed was great…there was such a natural element to their understanding in this part of the world. Thank you for being so patient with the kids and for making everything so special.
We ate at 5 star restaurants every night, slept in the lap of luxury, had the best tour guide by our side every moment of the day and access to all we could ever ask for…all while having the kids with us!!!
A truly special vacation! I am already looking forward to the next time!
 
Sincerely Joe

The Fully Combined Holiday Experience-take 2
This has been an absolutely fantastic holiday. It has fulfilled our wildest dreams (and believe us, we have some pretty wild dreams!). To all the crew, thank you for sharing some wonderful, funny and touching moments. We were particularly impressed with your willingness to join in our silly games and you have left us with some very special memories.
 
 
What an amazing week! Thank you so much for making every moment of this trip fantastic. I really could not have dreamed of having such a great crew. It was all just excellent. Something for everyone!
The great massages, and what awesome food! 
How well you managed to keep everyone happy and entertained! It was a vacation we will all remember…
We will see you next summer !

I knew that this was going to be an amazing trip but I honestly couldn’t have foreseen how wonderful it really was.
The Kings Ransom is a beautiful catamaran-so luxurious and comfortable with all the lovely amenities, but I couldn’t  have anticipated the fun, adventure, comfort and warmth your personalities and efforts provided. You made this absolutely spectacular for all of us. The children had the best times of their lives and so did the adults. It takes very special people to be able to do that and I can’t tell you how much I am grateful to you all.


 We had a wonderful time!!!!
 Love love the crew!  They were fantastic.  Harley had two ear infections and the crew was so wonderful with her.  Just can't say enough.  Food was fantastic.  We enjoy every morsel. The BVI'S were just breathtaking. The perfect recommendation in both....Kings Ransom and BVI'S. The boat was not only perfect but so much fun.   Thank you for that!!!!
 We are not home yet,  we are all travelling American Airlines and the entire airlines shut down.  We are stuck in San Juan for the night.
 The trip was one we will never forget and will have many wonderful memories.
 Thank you again.
 Best Regards,
 Rhonda


I can say without hesitation that last week was the best vacation that my family has ever been on.  The boat was georgeous but the vacation was made by the crew.  They all made us feel at home  and there was not a desire that wasn't taken care of.  I highly recommend them to other families.
 You may be hearing from us for next year!
Patty


‘’I am happy to report that the 2013 charter was extremely successful and, after fourteen consecutive programs involving yacht charters, this one was possibly the best yet according to many of the repeat guests. A great deal of coordination, cooperation and willingness to help on all fronts was shown by all the crews . Their thorough attention to the details of the charter and the needs of all the guests plus their helpful communication was much appreciated. Their enthusiasm and often humourous attempts to engage the other yachts in friendly competition helped foster a fun spirit throughout the catamaran fleet.

We have received emails and letters from the King’s Ransom guests saying how wonderful the crew were and how happy they were with the yacht, the meals and the service.
King’s Ransom and her crew did a great job throughout the program and I will be pleased to provide positive references and recommendations for the yacht and the crew. We will be pleased to have King’s Ransom, and the crew on future charters for these and any other clients.
Thank you again to everyone in the  King’s Ransom  family for such excellent service.’’

 


''I could not imagine a better place, better people or a better boat on which to unite as a family. You have helped us enjoy each other and our precious family time together-a rare gift. For the rest of our lives we will remember each of you and how easy it was to be with you and the wonderful care you took of us. Thank you so much for your expert sailing, your great sense of humor and your excellent taste in music! We had a wonderful vacation thanks to your efforts.'' The Fisher family, Christmas


''The crew of this ship has shown our family love, respect, patience, and generosity. We will be forever grateful for your endless ours of hard work in order to give us the trip of a lifetime''  Thanksgiving




Thank you both very much for creating a very enjoyable atmosphere, your services were very professionally carried out and we cannot think of anything that Yourselves could have done to improve the enjoyment of our treasured vacation.

With some Children as Guests, “Banter” was more or less a perquisite of the package, but the banter that you both gave to the Children was clever and thoughtful, and it came across as, you both genuinely enjoying your success at making some Children’s eyes and mouths wide open.
We as “Well Travelled Grand Parents” are fully aware that we should have left all “Table Clearing” away to you and your Crew, many times you all reminded us that it was part of your service, however, irrespective of how much we paid for the charter neither Hazel nor I, wanted the Children to lack the courtesy of a “Helping-Hand”
we could not have asked for a more thoughtful, mindful person to look after our needs
Thank You once again for giving all our Family memories that will be treasured for the rest of our lives
Safe Sailing, have a well-earned holiday back in England, Niagara Falls is only sixty miles from our home so if next July/August you would like to visit us please do not hesitate to email us, only cost to you- your airfares, VIP upon landing & leaving our nearby Toronto International Airport.
Best Wishes
Hazel & Chris
Ontario, Canada


The crew made the trip.  This is definately a "Can Do" vacation.  They were extremely accomodating and friendly.  We had 3 small boys and they were VERY upset when the trip came to an end.  We will definately be coming back!
