S/Y The Dove

The Dove

Two weeks available March 10th to the 26th in the Grenadines, open calendar after April 14th drop off in St. Vincent.

New brochures are in!

A truly successful skipper/owner charter yacht? 

Captain Larry Tyler writes, “We were on charter over Christmas and the New Year in St Barth’s, one of the most exciting places to be at midnight on New Year’s Eve.  The port of Gustavia and the outer harbour were packed with just about every mega yacht you can imagine - plus the mere mortals like us on The Dove. Terrific atmosphere ending with a wonderful fire work display over the old fort and then the sound of hundreds of ship horns at the strike of midnight!”

“So far this year 12 of the 14 weeks booked are repeat guests and two of those have been coming back since the first year The Dove and I started chartering in1991.  Cindy James from Trinidad is my hostess this season, her third year on The Dove.  All our guests love her “Trini“ smile, her rum punches and the breakfasts and lunches she prepares.  I still enjoy more than ever preparing the main meal at dinner time. Every year I come back from France and Italy with some new ideas for a recipe I have tried at a restaurant, so it is great fun to see our guests enjoy the food so much.”

Two air-conditioned master cabins with queen size beds & ensuite heads & showers.

One of the many reasons charterers rebook with Larry is the excellent condition of The Dove and the constant improvements he makes to enhance his guests’ comfort.
