What do yacht charterers have to say about luxury vacations Josh has organised for them?

  • Hi Josh, We had a great time, thank you. The crew was fantastic, the Greek islands are incredible, and the boat was beautiful and functional. Time flew. Again, thank you for all your assistance. Best regards, A.M MOTOR YACHT TALYNE / Athens – Athens, Greece / 17-30 July.
  • Josh, the charter was amazing, everything was perfect: crew, water, food, service, toys, jetski... All in all was it really good. P.A. MOTOR YACHT GRACE / Split-Split, Croatia / 28 July – 4 August.
  • Hi Josh, It would be an understatement to say the cruise was fantastic. We couldn't have asked for a better time in every respect. Everything from the collection point at the airport at Bodrum to our departure at Fethiye was perfect and exceptionally well organised. Gamze's initial briefing was great and we instantly knew the crew would be more than what we could have expected. They couldn't have done more to make us feel comfortable and relaxed. Each of them were the nicest, kindest people. We really enjoyed their company. We loved the boat in terms of comfort and facilities. The chef, Shien, treated us to some of the best food we have tasted. The selection, presentation, variety and quality of the food was superb. The captain was extremely informative and really took us to the most beautiful places every day. We are already looking forward to planning our next cruise holiday. Many thanks again Josh. Best regards, P MOTOR YACHT SIMAY F / Bordum – Fethiye, Turkey / 21-28 July.
  • Hi Josh, just a quick note to thank you for an amazing charter experience on Skyler. The yacht, Captain and crew were exemplary. Nothing was too much trouble for the team onboard. My family and guest on both weeks had a truly amazing experience. Best regards, G Hi Josh, yes, I second G’s words, we had an amazing time that exceeded my family’s expectations and having experienced it, it is certainly something we will do again. The captain and whole team were extremely friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. I need to stop swaying though! Cheers, D M/Y SKYLER / Naples-Sicily / 7-20 Jul.

  • Hi Josh, Turquoise was epic - incredible experience. The crew were awesome, chef was outstanding, and service was world class. Couldn’t pick any faults from my end mate, it was great. The crew really made it a great time, we all got along very well. Fuel cost was a lot more than originally estimated, almost double. But not the end of the world. Cheers, JC M/Y TURQUOISE / Nice, French Riviera / 28 May - 4 June.
  • Dear Josh, Mr. M has just arrived to Egypt, I’ve asked him for his feedback on everything and he said all was just perfect. I know that once you’re involved then no need for me to worry. Million thanks for everything and looking forward to other future trips. All the best MEAMINA / SOF-Sardinia / August 17-31.
  • Hi Josh, Safely back in London after a fabulous trip. Apart from an engine problem (see below) the boat was great - everything we had hoped for and more. And if the boat was great the crew were FANTASTIC. Honestly - what a team. They were so welcoming and helpful I think we would all want to go again if only to be reunited with them. Nothing was too much trouble. Their itinerary suggestions were great. The food was better than anything on land. EXCELLENT. Unfortunately one fuel pump went about half way through the trip. We had been enjoying zipping along at 40 knots. From there on we were reduced to one engine and <10 knots. The Captain did everything he could to get a replacement part, but I understand it’s going to take a couple of weeks. We weren’t going to let it ruin our trip, but the reduced speed meant our route was somewhat compromised. It’s also not as comfortable "bobbing along” (!) as planning at speed. SOLARIS / September 3 – 10.
  • Josh, The charter on Domenica was fantastic. The crew were very professional, the chef very passionate & innovative & the skipper Lovor was a standout. We were only the 2nd charter that they had done as I believe the owner is very particular & only wanting to do a few charters a year. The crew were obviously used to a hard marker in the owner & this showed in every aspect of their service. The service from yourself was also very professional & most attentive so I really appreciated that. It made the whole experience a very easy & seamless one. I look forward to dealing with you again next year when we are thinking of a 7-10 day charter for 8 guests around Corsica & perhaps Sardinia in mid-June. We will stay in touch. DOMENICA / Croatia / September 2 – 9.
  • Dear Josh, Your assistance has been perfect and so far I am very happy about my experiences with you and yes in the future I’ll be happy to go through you for another booking (and with the feedbacks I have given you in the years you now know a bit better what I am usually looking for). As I said overall the experience this year was a positive one. Under the weather conditions we had it was key to have a keen, expert sailor. Safety always above all. And in that sense he knew what he was doing. Speak in 2018, Best. ANASSA / Greece / August 5-12.
