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

"Hi Trina, we wanted to let you know that we had an awesome time on our JUST ENOUGH charter... loved the yacht, and Brandon and his entire crew were great. Thank you for lining this up… everyone wants to do another trip so I’ll be back in touch soon." BB JUST ENOUGH / Nassau, Bahamas / August.

"Hello Trina, We had a great time, gracias as always. Absolutely GREAT!!!!!! Thanks" F.C. ETOURAGE / SOUTH OF FRANCE / August.

"Outstanding Trina, the best I have ever been chartering with you. The maintenance of the boat was great too!" F.C. BLUE VISION / Italy - SOF – July - August.

"Hello Trina: Just for you knowledge, the experience with Eagle of Norway, was amazing!! The boat, the crew (Marko and Adriana), the weather and Croatia were simply perfect. We are very happy with the experience. Thanks a lot!! Best regards." LM S/Y EAGLE OF NORWAY / Croatia / July.

"Hi Trina - Our experience aboard Sea Dog was terrific. From the crew to the food to the weather, everything was great. The one downer was the 36 hour period spent in Milos, which was about 24 hours too long. The crew went above and beyond to make sure we were happy, and I know they were in contact with the owner over the engine issue. They scrambled and tried to airlift a part to Milos, and after a snafu they sent it by boat. So as I said - they did everything in their power to try and fix the issue. We loved the crew and hope to see them again. "JE M/Y SEA DOG / Greece / July.

"Trina! Wow! Can’t say enough about the great time & service we had on LIBERTUS!! Pablo, the crew and the yacht were more than we expected. We were sad to leave and I think they will miss us too ;)! Thank you for your assistance in making this a success for us. Keep us in mind for next summer as we are looking forward to chartering again. Thank you, " DO M/Y LIBERTUS / France / 16-23rd June.

"Trina, the captain and crew were fantastic. They went over and above many times and the chef was seriously world class. CT M/Y TRANQUILITA / Naples, Italy / Jun.

"Trina, the charter was absolutely amazing. Every single person on the crew was first class! Martin the chef was amazing, Cubby made an incredible video for us with his drone. I cannot say enough good things about Captain Peter and his crew. We will definitely be back with our kids! Thanks for directing us to this yacht!" PB M/Y SEADREAMS / Nassau - Staniel Cay, Bahamas / June.

"Trina, everything was great :) We really enjoyed our time on the yacht. Captain Boris was very nice, as were Maria and Gaga. We couldn’t have asked for a better crew. Thank you for all of your help with it. We were able to check out a few islands and using a yacht is definitely something we plan on doing again in the future!" M.A S/Y OPAL / Croatia, Adriatic / May.

"Trina, everything was great. Jim was fantastic and did the work on at least two people by himself. I'm not sure how he did it but the food was wonderful and he was totally accommodating to all of our requests. We had a great trip!" S/Y SASHA / British Virgin Islands / March.

"Trina - all sorted no problems. Christy and Heff were extremely professional and friendly. They carried out all their duties without hesitation and were willing to make extra effort to ensure we had a dream holiday. We cannot praise them enough! The food was excellent and their attention to detail on the yacht was very impressive. Deck crew Mandy was also a star - quietly making sure everything was perfect. All in all a great success!"
