CDI-Aria.jpg (6196 bytes)ARIA, 67’ ketch.  "We had a really great holiday on ARIA.  ALL of the crew were extremely good fun and excellent and professional about their duties.  Chris’ cooking was perfect for us and it was delicious.  I have never known a chef who loves his galley as much as Chris.  He was always in it creating something.  His breads were wonderful and each meal was a delight."

"The yacht itself was great, and because it was broader, the deck space was much more comfortable – plenty of places to either sit or lie and read in cushioned comfort, and also plenty of flat space for sunning. 

The queen master cabin's bath offers a full-size tub and massaging shower head. Two en suite guest cabins have twin lower singles.

$22,000/2     $23,000/4     $24,000/6 - Inclusive except special requests, local taxes, dockage, and communication.

AKASHAAKASHA, 76’ catamaran.  "We had a very good trip, the accommodation was absolutely brilliant for myself as it was on the same level, and the overall accommodation is excellent.  There was plenty of room for the ten of us."  (This client has previously chartered Douce France twice.)

The owner's suite offers a king-size bed, lounge, spa bath and  walk in closet.   There are four en suite queen size guest cabins - one converts to twin lower singles.   Vast sunning and relaxing areas on two decks and the trampolines.

$37,600/2     $37,600/4     $37,600/6     $38,300/8     $39,000/10  -  inclusive except special requests, and Scuba Diving. 


CDI-Fruition.jpg (5622 bytes)FRUITION, 80’ ketch, is available in the Med this summer.  Current plans are to be based in the Western Med, but she will happily relocate for bookings in Croatia and the Eastern Med.  Full width Queen Master plus two guest cabins with large twin singles, all with en suite bathrooms.  Three comfortable dining options:  the very large, easily-accessible cockpit; the 270-degree-view deck saloon, and the cherry paneled lower dining saloon.  British crew, Roger and Lisa Guy have been a team on racing and charter yachts since 1999.  $17,900/2    $18,900/4    $19,900/6 – plus all expenses.

KALIKOBASS, 104' sloop.   Guests who cruised the US and British Virgin Islands for two weeks in February said their charter was "Superb!  Could not ask for a better crew or captain.  The chef was fantastic!  The yacht was exquisite!  The layout was perfect.  Two weeks was not nearly enough.  We would like to charter the same boat and crew again."  Very flexible accommodations for 8 in four convertible en suite staterooms.  $45,000/6   $47,500/8 plus all expenses.

SEA ANGEL, 88‘ ketch.  Report from the broker:  I received a nice email saying what a fabulous vacation they all had with you.  He told me his favorite vacation is a charter and his favorite captain is you, Patrick (Overington).  Nice words.  You do a great job.  Thanks so much for taking such good care of these repeat guests.

MAKAYABELLA, 65’ sloop.  "Our trip with John and Sue was so fantastic!  We have sailed with them several times and have now become great friends and email through the year. I would give them the highest marks possible.  They are so easy to be with and still very professional.  They know how to give you your space or to join in.  We always have them join in, but they only do it after their work is done."

"The MAKAYABELLA is equipped so nicely.  You have everything you need, the space is nice, and they keep it so clean.  They really do a splendid job and we love them!  Just can’t wait for the next time!"
