The CynderElla has it all…a tremendous crew,fabulous food, beautiful accommodations, and water toys for everyone! Captain Paul and his crew made us feel rightat home and safe at all times aboard the comfortable, well-designed yacht. They were always professional. They listened to what we wanted to experienceand made it happen. The Seabobs were somuch fun and the elliptical style stand up paddle boards were amazing. We hadnever seen such a thing and judging by the looks we received from everyone thatsaw us, they hadn’t either. It was a wonderful vacation for our whole family.

We have chartered the CynderElla twice. They have been some of the best and mostrelaxing weeks we’ve ever enjoyed on vacation. The crew treats you like you ownthe yacht and the accommodations are the best we’ve experienced on any yachtwe’ve been on. There is nothing quite like enjoying a sunset on the water.
Being aboard the CynderElla in the Abacos wasthe perfect way to spend a week. Theyacht is spacious and meticulous, while still being comfortable. Captain Paul and mates, Tyler and Jack, madeus the priority. Their attentiveness andefforts to meet our needs was above and beyond our expectations. Our fishing trips aboard the 30-foot GradyWhite “Reel Prince” will always be memorable. Fresh fish tacos are the best!

He’s friendly, attentive, andaccommodating. He was focused on safetywhile still making sure we had all the fun and thrills we were after. The food is unsurpassed. All of our dietary requests were not onlymet, but Captain Paul and Ashley amazed us at each meal. Also, what better way to work off all thosemeals than using the elliptical and weights onboard! They have thought of everything you need forall the comforts of home.
