Where do you find the best crews?  On Nicholson Yachts!

CDI-Douce_France.jpg (5297 bytes)DOUCE FRANCE, 138’ catamaran.  Enthusiastic praise from April guests:

“I’ve chartered quite a few times now. This was by far and away the best crew I have ever been with.  (In fact if you could be guaranteed a crew like this I’d be tempted to buy a boat!). I can’t fault anything. They were excellent. Fantastically friendly and helpful. But never ‘in your face.’   A great boat and a really excellent crew.  I can’t praise them high enough.”  $85,000/12 plus all, Summer 2006, South Pacific & winter 2006-07 New Zealand.


MYSTIQUE, Tayana 55 recent charter guest comments:   “James and Katherine were outstanding.  They worked so well together.  They did so much above and beyond that we can’t cover everything.  Jan’s glasses broke, and James was able to fix them with fishing line.  Katherine spoiled us from wanting to dine anywhere else.  Her preparation and presentation was the best.  She could segue from cooking to deckhand to singing without missing a beat.”    Forward and aft centerline double staterooms.  Call for summer specials and rates.  Caribbean.
