May 2018 - Service (5 star) always with a smile and always available. Matt and Naomi deserve all the praise they get. Very special people…it has been a spectacular trip.
October 2017 - THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! What an absolutely glorious trip, holiday of a lifetime. There are too many wonderful memories to list and I’d find it too difficult to pick a favourite either, but all of it was down to you guys, so thank you enormously.
July 2017 - What an idyllic experience! …We are addicted to yacht life and cannot wait to hopefully experience it again. Matt your calm manner and easy going nature make for a great skipper. Naomi you are an excellent cook, and such a warm and friendly hostess. Thank you for everything!
July 2017 - Thank you both very much for a wonderful week on Polar Bear. Your cheerful and energetic disposition ensured there was never a dull moment. We really appreciated everything you both showed us and taught us. Naomi’s cooking is better than most restaurant’s and Matt’s great at teaching sailing and water sports. The week has felt both long and all too short.
July 2017 - Matt & Naomi are amazing, we have had the most wonderful week onboard, they went above and beyond on every occasion.
June 2017 - …We all enjoyed your smiley faces and warm nature and nothing for the entire week was any trouble. Everything we asked of you was done with class and a smile. Matt, you are a wonderful sailor and a man who is excellent at his job, parking the boat was a sight to behold! Naomi, your cooking is truly second to none, a different dish of unbelievable standard was served every day - one day more delicious than the next….
June 2017 - Thank you for letting us enjoy the beautiful yacht, Polar Bear. Amazing hospitality from Matt & Naomi. Lovely anchorages, great sailing in between and so, so much fun with all the water toys, one trip we’ll remember for a long time
May 2017 - Press Trip with Yachting World's Deputy Editor SuperSail Issue October 2017- "It was the first time on a big boat for our young children, and what was blissful for us could have meant seasickness, boredom, and a compulsive inability to stay out of the way when anchoring for them. Instead, they did something extraordinary, they relaxed – and so did we. With our mini-crew safely installed in the enormous forward cockpit under a bimini, there was no danger of sunburn or small fingers slipping too close to a winch. This left us able to actually enjoy some sailing and share the moment when our son or daughter took the wheel for the first time."
"The crew’s enthusiasm for launching each and every water toy, for making any sail change unhesitatingly, and for trying to find the best possible spot in every anchorage really made the Polar Bear experience something special. Nothing was ever too much bother, thanks to their absolute commitment to each one of us having a good time.
In terms of inspiring a passion, our trip on board Polar Bearwas a riotous success. From taking the wheel to exploring nooks and crannies of secret inlets and learning how the chart plotter worked, it could not have been a morememorable introduction to the sheer delights of cruising for the youngest members of our family.
Beyond the incredible hospitality and comfort, it was also a chance for us to reacquaint ourselves with the simple pleasure of sailing with the sun on your back."
