Regal Flyer - Christmas Party - December 2013

Hey Jewels

We had the best time on Friday night on the wonderful Regal Flyer and Cam and Mark were wonderful. Cam was fabulous with waiting on people.

We were very much into the festive spirit so hopefully they were happy with everyone’s behaviour (most people didn't want to leave).

Everyone is saying that it was the best Christmas party yet so I think we might need to do it again.

Once again thanks so much for all your help and making our night so wonderful

Merry Christmas and take care Jewels

Hi Jewels,  Sabina  and the crew of the Activa.

Thank you so much for arranging the transfer to Waiheke for the retreat day.  

The delegation really enjoyed the trip out to Waiheke on your lovely launch Activa. The crew was very professional and the whole experience was a great success. I am sure the delegates left with a lasting impression of New Zealand hospitality.

Thank you for your email, and I am really sorry for the late reply.

We had a wonderful trip and great time on Dream Weaver on Friday last week. The weather was so beautiful, and everyone really enjoyed the vessel!

I apologize for being late getting back to the vessel on that day, and please say big thank you to Kirsty for not charging us extra payment.

Kirsty was so nice lady and she looked after us well on board.

Thank you again for everything this time, Jewels 
Please also say thank you to Kirsty, Brian and Mike!

It was very pleasure dealing with you too, and I will be sure to contact you again next time we will have a function on the water!

Kind regards,

Hi there

Sorry to take a wee while to reply – we have been soooo busy here.

Yes – had a fantastic cruise – we all loved it and we would definitely book again.
I have been telling everyone at work about the boat trip – and we are keen to do a sail sometime.

So I will definitely be in touch sometime – no idea when though, just yet.


My husband John and I will try and join in with one of the Wed or Sun sails sometime before the end of the summer, too!

My best regards

We were very lucky that we had the most amazing weather for the weekend.
The boat was beautiful, the food was amazing, everyone working on the boat or for the caterers couldn’t have been more helpful (a great example of customer service at its best) and everyone loved the jet skis.
Could you please pass on our thanks to the Olympic Spirit, Scoffs, the Jet Skiers and anyone else involved.
Everything couldn’t have gone smoother.
So thank you for everything.

Explorer - December 2012

Hi Jewels,
We all had such a fantastic time on the cruise, thank you so much!!!
Owen and the crew were wonderful, helpful, friendly and provided great service.  The boat was the perfect size and style for our group.  The food was excellent!  And you were so helpful throughout the booking process.
I will be thoroughly recommending both Decked Out Yachting and Owen’s boat to all I know who are looking for a function on the water!  And if I have another 40th I’ll definitely re-book.  Seriously though, I will definitely come back to Decked Out Yachting for any future needs.
Thanks so much and Merry Christmas to you, Owen and the crew.
Cheers!

Pacific Mermaid Wedding March 2012

Hi Sabina,

Thank you!!! We had a fabulous day! We are still around...the honeymoon is in Greece in May! Worth the wait!

The boat and her crew were wonderful, and David from Scoffs & his team were fantastic. Thanks for introducing us to Scoffs.

I have attached a photo of us so you can have a giggle...we had no idea what the other was wearing until we started getting dressed for the ceremony. I think we ended up looking pretty good :o)

Kind Regards,
Marla

Decked Out Yachting Ltd – RWC October 2011

Hi Jo, Thank you for your kind message. And thank you also for all the hard work you put in. It was a busy time for all of us… and we survived!! I hope we get the chance to work together again soon. Many thanks and kind regards, Ruby

 

Explorer – October 2011

Hi Jo, The charter went well and the guests enjoyed their excursion. My role onsite is really to remain in the background and let the hostess look after the guests directly so I didn’t see the guests after the trip and therefore did not get any direct feedback. If anything is received through our client, we will of course pass it on. I am glad you had a great response from the boat. It has been great working with you and the team – all very accommodating and helpful despite the late confirmations, thank you very much! Best wishes, Helen

Chancellor – October 2011

Good to hear from you again, stunning weather today eh? We have had some very happy Koreans over the past two days as the weather improves. I trust they have had a great time on the boat, have heard from our guide and he said everything has been great so far, we were pleased to hear comments like this. So job well done team, we won’t hesitate to be in touch again if we have further incentive groups. Wish you a good long weekend too Jo

Pacific Mermaid – RWC October 2011

Hi Jo, The Pacific Mermaid was great, thanks so much for your help in ensuring everything ran so smoothly. I am out of here in about an hour but it has been great working with you, hopefully we can do it again sometime, Cheers, Suzanne

Mistero – RWC October 2011

Hi Jo, I haven’t had a chance to de-brief with our client yet about their trip but I am sure that they would have thoroughly enjoyed their time on Mistero…who wouldn’t!! Appreciate your help and look forward to working with you and the crew at Decked Out again soon Warmest Andrea

Nirvana – October 2011

Hi ya, The response I got from the Managers I organised this for was: a) the food was divine b) the staff were fantastic – nothing was too much hassle c) the boat was stunning Not a single complaint. Thanks you very much!! It was hugely enjoyed. Thanks Ash

 

Decked Out Yachting Ltd – RWC October 2011

Hi Sabina, Jo and Team I just wanted to send a wee note to say thank you so much for all your effort, time and patience leading up to and during the Rugby World Cup. Your effort to go over and above and assist in each and every way was greatly appreciated. It was a pleasure working with you and I will always highly commend your services. I look forward to working with you again. Kind regards Ange

 

Corybas – RWC October 2011

Hi Jo, I can’t thank you enough for the time and effort you put in to making sure we had a great boat with an even better captain/skipper/host (not sure Dave’s official boat title?!) Corybas is a stunning boat and your recommendation did not fall short at all, both groups loved the experience and will be talking about for quite some time. Monique (I think) was always mindful that everyone had a drink and was very pleasant, Nick also was a great help, constantly checking the group had enough drinks. But I must say that Dave is truly wonderful and was constantly engaging with the group, I couldn’t have asked for a better team to work with. This has been a wonderful experience and I am sure that Kieran will echo my comments with the groups that he had on boats. Jo, if we are back in Auckland anytime soon with groups, your company will be the first recommendation that I make. If not for work I am sure that I will back in Auckland with friends and family and would love to enjoy any of your boats for leisure. Thank you again and I will organise payment of both invoices this week. Regards, Donna.

Hi Jo, Yes we had a great time. Everything was good and we even managed to stay dry despite the conditions! The boat was good and exactly what we needed. Skipper was really good and very helpful with everything. Thanks

 

Nirvana – March 2011

Jo it was fantastic in every way. I got a text half way through and have just met them for today’s activity. They loved the boat – there was not one utter of disappointment. In fact last year they had a cruise around Hayman Island – which I knew about so realised this was a bit of a challenge. Your boat far exceeded what they had there – which I can assure you is a huge complement. They were so surprised how fantastic the boat is and wait for it – how cheap it was. Dave and crew were fantastic and found a sheltered spot for them. Jo I have to add if ever you need a chef – Peter —— from —— was outstanding and I have a feeling will – together with the boat – be the highlight of their trip. Not only was the food some of the best they have ever had – and they describe themselves as well travelled foodies- but he is such a lovely person. He was a delight to work with and the guests really enjoyed him on board the boat. Anna his assistant is also an amazing lady to together they are the best team I have ever worked with as far as food is concerned. I would recommend them 100% You have all been so patient and fantastic to work with. I will certainly use your company again and will totally recommend it. Sadly I don’t often have that calibre of people so may have to wait a bit!! Hopefully they will talk when they get back home. Please thank all the staff and crew again. You were all so fantastic and it could not have been a better day. Kind regards Jude

 

Zefiro – March 2011

The group who attended had a fantastic day. They especially mentioned that the crew was great and very helpful. Everyone I spoke to could not fault the day, even the weather played ball. They were taken to a spot where they caught lots of fish (lots undersized but its still fun)!! Thank you for all your help and answering any questions we had, everything fell into place just nicely and a memorable day was had by all. Thanks again. Regards Shona

 

Nirvana – March 2011

Good afternoon Jo Thanks so much to you and the crew of Nirvana for making yesterday a huge success; we have had a lot of great feedback from our clients already. They were quite overwhelmed by the standard of the boat and the professionalism of the crew. I included your promotional DLE in the client gift bags for their future reference. I still have plenty spare and will get them back to you in the near future. Again, thanks to all involved for making the day so special. Kind Regards Jenny

Hi Jo Friday went well given the weather. The boys on the boat did a great job of hosting us and really know their stuff. The day was recorded on the boats DVD system, could you please arrange for that to be burnt to a DVD so and have it sent here, thanks. Regards David

Chancellor – March 2011

Hi Jo, Yes we had a great time. Everything was good and we even managed to stay dry despite the conditions! The boat was good and exactly what we needed. Skipper was really good and very helpful with everything. Thanks

Nirvana – March 2011

Jo it was fantastic in every way. I got a text half way through and have just met them for today’s activity. They loved the boat – there was not one utter of disappointment. In fact last year they had a cruise around Hayman Island – which I knew about so realised this was a bit of a challenge. Your boat far exceeded what they had there – which I can assure you is a huge complement. They were so surprised how fantastic the boat is and wait for it – how cheap it was. Dave and crew were fantastic and found a sheltered spot for them. Jo I have to add if ever you need a chef – Peter —— from —— was outstanding and I have a feeling will – together with the boat – be the highlight of their trip. Not only was the food some of the best they have ever had – and they describe themselves as well travelled foodies- but he is such a lovely person. He was a delight to work with and the guests really enjoyed him on board the boat. Anna his assistant is also an amazing lady to together they are the best team I have ever worked with as far as food is concerned.

Olympic Spirit – February 2011

My basic comment is the whole thing was perfect. Any constructive comment would be to not serve 90 people dinner on the same floor. If you would put maybe 70 using both the rooms on one floor and spread the rest throughout using the bar and the deck I believe people would not feel so crammed into a small area. Aside from that the service was great, the boat beautiful, the crew (including the wonderful captain) were perfect, and the view was stunning. Everyone had an excellent time. Jennie

 

2XS – February 2011

Hi Jo – had a quick word with Matt who was hosting this for us and he simply said: “No complaints. Great staff, food etc. Very happy clients.” Also spoke with Gill, our GM, who attended and she was in agreement that everything was “fantastic”. As far as I’m concerned with the booking process, it was great also – seamless and very efficient. So all good from us thanks !!! Cheers, V

Great day once again Jo. Many Thanks Brad

 

Gladiator – December 2010

What a great day. This was the best charter day I have ever had. the vessel is spectacular, the Skipper and crew were great, knowledgeable and ran all day keeping us fed, supplied with drink or bait, and generally made a great day. the food was spectacular. Everything was easy, and there was never a moment of stress, pressure delay in any part of the day, whether fishing, eating, or any other part of the day. First class effort. The crew filleted our fish for us, bagged it, and treated us like kings. I would not hesitate to re-book or recommend. Thank you. Colin

Thanks so much also for your help…..Me thinks the guys will want to do it again at some stage so I will keep your details. Can you relay our thanks to all onboard Dream Weaver….. Merry Christmas and all the best for 2011. Kind regards Gillian

The car was towed away because we forgot to display the parking ticket…Haydn found it in his pocket later on…it happens :) We picked the car up next day. Many Thanks Best regards Klaudia

 

Waikomouri – December 2010

Hi, Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the team for our fabulous evening on Friday. Our team really enjoyed the evening, despite the weather, or maybe because of it. Daniel, Melissa and the Scoff team were awesome. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was divine. I will definitely pass your details on to any and all who look like they might even have a glimmer of interest because if their evening was half as good as ours, they will have a great time too. Many, many thanks and have a Merry Christmas and safe holiday season from me and the rest of the Anton’s team. Liz

2XS – November 2010

Yes we had a great time and Joanne was suitably impressed……..in fact she was keen to do another charter with our 4 kids for a weekend. The boat was well presented and the skipper was first class – he was very relaxed and that’s the type of people we are so it was perfect. We caught a couple of fish and donated them to Ian – I would recommend using your company to anyone, in fact at dinner we made quite a few people envious of the afternoon we had. Kind Regards, Gary

Haparanda – June 2010

Dear Sabina, Thank you for a wonderful day out on Saturday and the weather was first class. You were right about it being a great day! The showers were incidental to the sailing! Everyone had a fabulous time and we certainly could not fault a thing. Kate, Simon and John were welcoming and accommodating and very friendly throughout the trip and even though it ended rather excitingly with a rush around to stop the yacht crashing with a last minute gust of wind as we were ‘parking’, but that just added to the great day. The food was perfect and the right amount for all. Some of the staff wanted more towards the end of the sail as we ate at the beginning but had to make do with the desserts- which were gorgeous! Everyone got their drinks and even helped themselves to more as they left. John was a gracious owner and told us a lot about the boat and the history which was very interesting, Kate and Simon are a wonderful couple and allowed many of the staff to man the helm and help out with other aspects. The booking system was easy and you were extremely helpful and accommodating of us. All the staff were blown away with the yacht and all said it was such a great idea with a difference not like the ‘run of the mill’ boats you can hire. So all in all and very successful and fun filled day. I will certainly recommend Decked out Yachting to anyone who stops long enough to listen to me!! The staff are talking about putting money together each month to pay for them to come again!! So watch this space in the summer months. I will pass the invoice to the Administrator who will ensure this gets paid ASAP. I believe the payment date is the 16th but if you want it before that we can send a cheque. Kind regards, Meg

Kate, Simon and John were welcoming and accommodating and very friendly throughout the trip and even though it ended rather excitingly with a rush around to stop the yacht crashing with a last minute gust of wind as we were ‘parking’, but that just added to the great day. The food was perfect and the right amount for all. Some of the staff wanted more towards the end of the sail as we ate at the beginning but had to make do with the desserts- which were gorgeous! Everyone got their drinks and even helped themselves to more as they left. John was a gracious owner and told us a lot about the boat and the history which was very interesting, Kate and Simon are a wonderful couple and allowed many of the staff to man the helm and help out with other aspects. The booking system was easy and you were extremely helpful and accommodating of us. All the staff were blown away with the yacht and all said it was such a great idea with a difference not like the ‘run of the mill’ boats you can hire. So all in all and very successful and fun filled day. I will certainly recommend Decked out Yachting to anyone who stops long enough to listen to me!! The staff are talking about putting money together each month to pay for them to come again!! So watch this space in the summer months. I will pass the invoice to the Administrator who will ensure this gets paid ASAP. I believe the payment date is the 16th but if you want it before that we can send a cheque.

Kind regards,

Meg

Thanks

Mali

Nirvana – April 2010

Hi Sabina, Feedback very positive from me, the other guys and our guests. Dave and his staff were excellent. Organisation with you last week very easy and well sorted. Fishing became the focus which I hadn’t expected and because everyone was having fun we spent longer than I thought we might and Dave was happy to accommodate. Catering wise, the quality of the food was excellent. The popular items were definitely the finger food. I guess the best indicator is that we’d be keen to make it an annual event. Regards, Justin.

 

Ocean Blue – April 2010

You and Gina have been just fabulous to work with – I couldn’t recommend you more highly, and will definitely be in contact when (rather than ‘if’ I’m hoping!) we decide to go out again. Thank you again for your fabulous assistance. Ebba

Nirvana – March 2010

Hi Sabina I checked with my manager on feedback as I sadly didn’t do the trip. He said everything was handled well and he would use your company again (so that is great news!!). Thanks, Sabina and will speak to you shortly. Regards ~Robyn

Zefiro – March 2010

Hi Jo, Apart from the rain, Friday night was a complete success. George and the lads were great and food was excellent, if you could pass on our thanks to them, that would be awesome.

Thanks to you also for arranging everything for us and making the booking process so smooth. Cheers Matt

Ocean Blue – February 2010 – Annual Event

Have forwarded invoice on to our accounts lady. Payment should go through Thursday. Kind Regards, Jordan, Reel Papers

Haparanda – February 2010

Hi Gina, We certainly did have a great night!! Thank you very much for the professional service. In my opinion, the whole experience was great, right from initial contact with yourself through to departure from the boat on the evening. From speaking to the attendees, they all thought very highly of the schooner as they saw it as being “classy and elegant”. People also said “John and his crew were very friendly, accommodating and flexible to meet our needs”. Particular mention was made of the barman in the gully “Bar man was really good in that he was able to make great drinks and even whisk up drinks that were not on the menu” Also, I’m very thankful that John allowed us to stay beyond the scheduled 11pm finish. We certainly would have stayed on longer but getting an extra 45 mins was certainly a bonus. Awesome sound system!!!! It was overall a brilliant night and you guys made my wife and I proud hosts that evening. Keep up the good work!! Thanks Avi

 

Haparanda – Jet Ski’s – February 2010

Sabina Sorry have been on leave. We had an amazing day; everyone loved it. The jetski was great and the boat beautiful.

Decked Out Yachting – January 2010

Thanks Gina, I just want to say that out of all companies I contacted for a quote you were the most proactive and helpful. There is a possibility that we will need a small vessel to transport just the bridal party so I will keep your company in mind when arranging that part in a few months time. Regards, Laura Valk

Nirvana – January 2010

Hi Gina, Thank you for your email. Yes I had a (kind of) good weekend, would have been better without the occasional work – related phone calls etc. Yes we thank you again for looking after these people for us, being a corporate incentive I’m not sure if they will pass on any feedback but I can assure you if there was no complaints, you have done an fantastic job a bunch of satisfied clients. We now have Decked Out Yachting saved in our database so our team and myself would not hesitate to forward any future opportunities should we receive any similar enquiries. Will be in touch again hopefully in the near future. Best regards Kenneth, Magnetic South

Gladiator – December 2009

 

Gina, The trip was fantastic and Ken and his crewman were excellent. If I could suggest anything it would be for a full day trip starting early morning, a croissant (warmed with a coffee) would be a good start with an afternoon coffee (plunger) and a biscuit. We would use Gladiator again. Regards David Waters, Intext Architectural Systems Ltd

Olympic Spirit – December 2009

Hi Gina, We had a wonderful night on Friday night even if it bucketed down. It didn’t dampen our enjoyment in any way. On all of the Harbour Cruises we have done in the past we think that the Olympic Spirit is the best boat we have been on. We would like you to pass on our sincere appreciation and thanks to the crew and catering staff on the Olympic Spirit for the lovely evening we had…the food was divine and the service was excellent. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you Gina for your professionalism, patience, especially when it was stupid question time. We would have no hesitation in recommending Decked Out Yachting. Once again thank you all and all the best for Christmas and the New Year Regards Sue. A J Gundy Limited

Sailing New Zealand – December 2009

We had an awesome day!! The weather could have been better but that is beyond everyone’s control. We had two skippers for the price of one and Dad is still so awestruck he has yet to process the whole thing. Please pass on our thanks to Max and John they were gracious hosts. John is obviously a very experienced skipper even though the boat was new to him he maintained the perfect balance between service and expertise, with a quiet calm and a gentle sense of humour. Brilliant. Happy Christmas to you and yours. Cheers. Lisel

Nirvana – December 2009

Thank you Gina, everyone had a lovely time and I have had positive feedback from everyone thus far. The food, service and overall hospitality was excellent. We will most definitely consider your services in the future. Many thanks Regards, Jeannine, Bunnings Limited

Helecopter – Mudbrick – Boatshed – December 2008

Hi Sabina, Thanks for your email, we’re back in Malaysia now after a brilliant three weeks in NZ. Feedback: 1. The heli-ride was great, the pilot was a nice guy though we only had a few minutes with him. 2. The Boatshed is a fantastic place to stay, we will go back. Great food, great rooms, all good. 3. Mudbrick food was great, service was good. The evening was made all the more special by the coincidence that Handel’s Water Music played just as we finished dinner, the same music was played by a string quartet during our wedding 10 years ago. All in all a great experience and I only wish we had two or three nights to spare. Thank you very much again for all your help. Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Kind regards, Rewi H Bugo.

Nirvana – October 2008 – Waiheke

Hello Sabina, Just a quick note to let you know that I recently had a conference call with my client reflecting on their recent trip to New Zealand. The group had a great time on their trip to Waiheke Island and enjoyed the tours of the vineyard and olive groves and especially the lunch they had at Mudbricks. They thought the restaurant was fabulous and the food fantastic. The restaurant had a lot of atmosphere and the gardens were beautiful. They also thought the boat was fantastic and everyone was made to feel very welcome. Please can you convey this message to all the people concerned with the arrangements for this event, thank you all very much. Having been to Waiheke Island myself in 2004 I knew they were certain to have a great time, the island is great. I hope we are able to work together on another project in the not too distant future. Kind Regards Diane Shaw, Corporate Groups & Events UK, American Express

Nirvana – October 2008 – Waiheke

Hi Sabina – yes, I saw our friends yesterday and they were very happy with the outing on Sunday. Thought the boat was very luxurious and the service great. The tour guide got a special mention (sorry, I can’t remember his name but they did). They loved Waiheke and the wineries. I was a bit worried that the weather wasn’t very good but they said it was, so that’s all that matters. Thanks again – you’re great, and I will happily be in touch next time I need a great day out for a group. Regards Kay, Fonterra

Nirvana – September 2008

Sabina, Me again. Just want to say a big thanks for all your help with the charter. You are correct when you say they had a ball! They were absolutely raving about the boat.

Hello Jo,
I am pleased to report that all the candidates passed and they thoroughly enjoyed their time in "Chancellor". The boat proved well suited to our training purposes with no vices apparent in her handling.
May I take this opportunity to thank you for all your assistance in arranging and facilitating this charter. Your ready cooperation and pragmatic approach was very much appreciated as I tried to juggle a number of conflicting priorities.
My thanks again,

Kind regards

Cool Runnings - February 2013

Thanks Jewels, the day was thoroughly enjoyed by all on board.  
Karl and his team were wonderful – so pleasant, attentive and helpful to all of our needs.  The boat was perfect – we had reduced numbers of staff able to make it on the day so there was plenty of space for everyone to spread out; the weather was perfect (wonderful that you could arrange that as an extra, chuckle).  Unfortunately the fish were not abundant even though Karl moved us around a bit in an endeavour to find them.
Thanks again.   We tend to have a day out on the water every year so we will be in touch again next year.
Regards
Pam

Cool Runnings - April 2013

Dream Weaver - February 2012

I’ve been meaning to get back to you about our boat trip. It was fantastic. Everyone was very happy with the whole event and had a wonderful time albeit there were a few very sore heads on Saturday morning. The catering staff were so friendly and helpful. We didn’t have to worry about anything.

Please could you pass on a big thank you to them and to you for your quick response and assistance with our queries.

We will definitely be calling you again for our next charter.

Take Care
Sam

Dream Weaver - January 2013

Hi Jewels
 
We certainly did have an absolutely wonderful time onboard the Dream Weaver on Sunday. Early morning, we thought the weather was going to spoil things for us, but fortunately, it cleared to be a beautiful day.
He took us to all the interesting places and a nice calm break off Milford for our speeches. All the crew, and catering staff, were really friendly and did their jobs really well. And to be given the beautiful big snapper from Sean at the end of the trip, was really the icing on the cake. It was delicious and much appreciated!
We have had a lot of feedback from friends and family who all enjoyed it immensely, and I'm sure you will get more bookings from it.
I have enjoyed working with you and wouldn't hesitate in recommending you to others.
Thank you for everything. The trip softened the blow of turning 70!!!!!!

Escape - January 2012

Hi JO,


The day was absolutely perfect!!

The food was amazing please pass on compliments to the chef!

The captain Craig was a great host and the guests were very complimentary of
him and the team on board.
Honestly I don’t think I would have changed a thing! It was better than I
could have imagined and I’m so happy the weather turned out gorgeous!!

I and Mark want to Thank you and your team for one of the best
experiences we have had here in New Zealand and I’m so glad that we chose to
book with yourselves as it was an easy experience and the most hassle free
wedding planning you could imagine!

Our guests were gushing about how nice the day was and the overall
experience.... so thank you sooo much!

I will definitely be passing you guys on to friends and be thinking about
having our first anniversary on the same boat again!

So thank you again

Carissa and Mark

 

Escape - January 2014

Hi Sabina,

Thank you for the follow up. We had great time especially with kayaking. Although there weren't any fish at the end but the guys enjoyed fishing, next time we probably gonna invite a person who can speak Chinese. The food and services are really great too, I really enjoyed them, and I got good feedback from other guests don't usually have western food.
Anyway, it's such great service from you given such the short notice to organise everything for us. Hopefully we'll talk to you next year when the guests come over. Thank you and happy Chinese New Year!


Regards

Feedback was that they all had a fabulous time last Thursday and thought the crew were great.

I also spoke to Dave the captain a few times before and after to check on everything and found him very helpful – so feel free to pass that on.

Look forward to another great trip.

Haparanda - 40th Birthday - March 2012

Hi Jo,
 
I just wanted to tell you guys you did an amazing job in organizing my partners 40th Birthday!
The patience you had with my particular 'special' requirements, the attention you showed me in what options were available to me, the prices absolutely worthy of the memorable experience we all shared!
Myself, my partner, and our 28 other guests had the greatest night and I couldn't have asked for a better company to deal with!
The food - let's not forget - was to die for! Seafood, pizzas, platters the works...everyone dove right in! (I was lucky enough to steal but a few oysters) but was told it was all HEAVENLY!
The music set the scene just perfectly - A+++
I will absolutely be recommending you guys to anyone wishing to have an incredible night aboard...furthermore, you might just see me again... :)
Thanks Haparanda...you were a beautiful memory!
 
Thanks so much Jo!!!

Haparanda - Corporate Cruise - March 2013

Hi Jewels

Yes the Charter was great, everybody had an amazing time. I thought that everybody was going to fall asleep once we got off the cruise as we were so relaxed!! Just what the doctor ordered.

The skipper was great and offered to take a team photo once we had docked.

Overall we had a lovely day and I would not hesitate in using you again and I know all the managers who went out on the 7th are REALLY looking forward to going out again on the 20th.

Kind Regards

Annette

Liberte - Family Escape - January 2012

Hi Jewels
We had a very good cruise circumnavigating Waiheke Is. with steady fresh SW wind to sail most of the way.  Liberté was fine for us.

The information and communications from you were excellent. We much appreciated your agreement to the noon to noon period. The manuals and other publications on board all good. 

I think it is highly likely that we will be chartering again as the rest of the family very keen. Perhaps towards the end of the year.

Kind Regards

Liberte - Bareboat Charter - Easter Escape 2013

Hi Jewels

We had a lovely weekend.  The weather and sea were very kind to us and the water was warm for swimming.  Liberte sails very nicely, is well kitted out and is a very comfortable boat for a couple.  By amazing coincidence, we ran into some people who honeymooned on Liberte years ago, and had very fond memories!  Entertaining.
