 What have charterers said about Trina and the charters she has organised?

Here is a small but recent selection of client feedback on Trina:

-    “Trina, Both the family side and friend side of the trip had a fabulous time. The crew was terrific. They were engaged with guests in all activities and truly seemed to enjoy themselves. Chef LuLu was phenomenal. We did a lot of water sports including snorkeling, seabobs, rope swing, slide, boating etc. and the crew really like to be engaged in these activities. While this is my first charter so I don’t have any crew to compare, my wife and I and all of my guests would give them high ratings. Let me know what more I can tell you about the crew.”

-    “The yacht was spectacular. The layout, furnishings, atmosphere and amenities were amazing (except not having seabobs, but I am pretty sure the owner is going to buy some seabobs as the guests and crew absolutely loved them!). It seemed every other boat had yacht envy as they were always circling the yacht! We did see Seahawk and Rose Hearty which was fun. The BVI itinerary worked well and Captain Simon was very flexible on what we wanted to do. New Year’s Eve could not have worked out any better. Best vacation that a whole lot of money can buy! S/Y PERSEUS / BVI / New Years 2015/16”

-    “Trina, In a word, the trip was INCREDIBLE! The yacht itself was fantastic. We went to the yacht show in Monaco and boarded probably a dozen boats the same length as Excellence bit none had the volume, layout or usability as ours. The top sun deck was the absolute best. No other yacht compared.”

“And the crew was fantastic. They didn't know how to say no! Dusty was amenable to anything we wanted to do and the staff waited on us hand and foot. I didn't fix one drink all week. They unpacked our cases and packed them back when we departed. They stayed up literally all night when the party wouldn't stop! Samantha, chief steward, was the most accommodating person that has ever served me. I told her she always has a job working for me if she gets tired of the charter business!”

-    “Hi Trina, Thank you so much for setting up the trip on the EFI. Things were fantastic and my family thoroughly enjoyed themselves. You were right, the crew was awesome and the food unbelievable. I would highly recommend them to others. S/Y EFI / August 2015 / Greece.”

-    “Trina: The Charter was excellent – the Best captain we have ever had and an excellent crew. The boat itself was very well suited to our needs, it was particularly good that all cabins were of a similar size, as you know often the 3rd and 4th cabins can be a little small the design of the boat meant they were all a good size. M/Y PLAY THE GAME / August 2015 / Spain.”

-    “It is rare when a trip that is so hyped up and anticipated actual exceeds expectations, but this one did. Not a once in a lifetime trip for us. We are thinking about the next trip already!  MY EXCELLENCE . September 2015 / SOF”

Trina’s own comments:

“Yachting vacations and helping our clients plan them is something that I truly enjoy. All of the best vacations I have had, have been when sailing in an exotic location on board a beautiful yacht…you just cannot beat it! It gives me great pleasure and satisfaction to help my clients decide where to spend their precious vacation time. I truly love matching my clients with the perfect vessel in the perfect location as I know first-hand just how special it can be when it’s planned correctly.

I have been lucky enough to have sailed in some of the most beautiful cruising grounds in the world. At last count my personal sailing experience includes New Zealand, Australia, Sydney and the Whitsundays, Asia, Thailand, The Eastern Mediterranean, Turkey, the Western Mediterranean, The Spanish Balearics, The South Pacific, French Polynesia and most recently the Caribbean and in particular the British Virgin Islands….”
