Charter June 25th-July 2nd 2018, St Thomas-St Thomas:
-Comments regarding the crew: “Loved Nathan ! He was great ! Laura and Jake were great too! Laura’s meals were out of this world good and Jake was there always with a smile and tending to our every need ! I normally like pretty simple meals and was a bit concerned about the meals being too uptight for my liking, but the opposite was actually the case ! The presentation was amazing and the way she prepared the food was simply unbelievable ! There was not one thing that we did not like. If we had any concerns with what she was preparing, she found a way to modify to fit our needs. However, this rarely was needed. We ate mostly onboard for every meal, and I would recommend doing it especially for dinner. You will not find a better meal. It was fun to do a few lunches off the boat to see local culture. I will say that the meals were hearty and filling and we ate every bite including the dessert, but none of us gained any weight on the trip !”
-Comments regarding the yacht: “Exceptionally clean ! Crew worked very hard to keep it neat and tidy without being overbearing.”
-Comments regarding the sports and leisureactivities/equipment on board : “It was all great !”
-Comments about the itinerary: “It was our first time to sail the BVI and we loved every minute of it.”
Charter March 26th - April 1st 2018, Antigua-Antigua: Guest's comment:
"Our charter went wonderfully. You were of course right about Nathan, Laura and Jake; they made everything comfortable and enjoyable, and the trip planning suited us well. Our daughters had plenty of time under way, but also lots of time to waterski, tube, kneeboard and snorkel. Antigua was beautiful and had a great selection of places to drop anchor. The food could not have been better conceived in terms of our needs, and while we thought it was elegant and fancy, Laura said this was pretty simple based on what she often is called upon to do.We can't thank you enough for recommending Twin and for saving this part of our vacation."
Charter March 17-25, 2018. St Martin - Antigua : Guests' comments :"
"Our time on TWIN was just spectacular. XXX and I are still in Antigua and heading back tomorrow. Will give more detailed feedback later but we just loved the boat and most importantly the crew. Thank you for all your efforts to make our time aboard so memorable!"
Charter February 16-23, 2018 Tortola- Tortola: Broker and Guest's comments:
Broker’s comment : "Hello! Excited to share this wonderful review from the xx Charter! Thanks so much for taking such great care of them. I look forward to working with you all again (hopefully soon) on future bookings!"
Guest’s comment : "We had a great week on Twin. The crew worked to make sure we enjoyed every minute, and taught us several things along the way. The food was incredible. The flavor and presentation were over the top, and somehow Laura knew our favorites without even listing them on the preference sheet. She was a magician! Service was top notch the entire week. The crew were very accommodating, from the Captain's Corner chart review in the morning through every meal service and anchorage - including Jake's happy hour concoctions - we always had what we wanted before we even knew that we wanted it! Nathan and Jake guided a snorkel or two, and took the time to point out things we would have otherwise missed. The food was top notch, and the crew felt like old friends by the end of the week.Nathan's timing was always spot on. He worked with BWD from Nanny to meet up for diving a couple times - and even had the lobster coming off the grill at lunch as the divers stepped on board. He took care of reserving scooters on Anegada, the ferry connection to Oil Nut Bay, and was always pulling into the dinghy dock on schedule whenever we were ready to return to the boat. The crew were very informative on sailing, and let us jump in to help whenever possible teaching us along the way. Jake always had a smile and the perfect cocktail for us, and Laura was too much fun with some "pre-planned" surprises for our newbie guests.Twin has a vast amount of entertaining space along with large, comfortable staterooms. There was always room to stretch out and enjoy the sun (or shade if desired) along with an incredible outdoor space to dine comfortably with everyone. The flybridge was a favorite while sailing - giving us 360 degree views of the beautiful water surrounding us".
Charter February 3-10, 2018 St Thomas-St Thomas : Guest's comments:
"In any event our group just loved the trip: Nathan and Laura and Jake were each terrific and could not have had a better attitude or provided better service, They were just the right combination of available and accessible but not intrusive.The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Laura is the best chef and Jake is a master at table presentation.In a low key way Nathan kept track of all of us when we were out snorkeling / kayaking and both Nathan and Jake joined us on a couple of the expeditions to show us the way. That was really good.The boat itself is beautiful and comfortable. My husband and I stayed in the master suite which was terrific. We loved getting a copy of the book about the boat and the t-shirts!I want to emphasize that the overwhelming feeling about the trip from our group was very, very positive."
Charter January 19-27, 2018 St Thomas-St Thomas :Broker and Guest's comments:
"Dear Nathan, Laura and Jake,
Thank you so very, very much for giving my clients the most wonderful charter-week and taking so great care of them.I will send the info underneath to other clients which showed interest in booking you and hope I can convince them to come back to the islands.I also appreciate the great co-operation with you before the charter started, you guys are so very professional, thank you for being so wonderful!!
Please find underneath the feedback of XX :-) !!!"
« We had a fabulous week on Twin. The boat is beautiful and the crew is FABULOUS!!! We loved Laura, Nathan and Jake and would highly recommend this boat and crew. I cannot say enough good things about our experience. I would also add that for anyone hesitating to visit the BVIs, they should not hesitate. There is certainly evidence of the devastation, but from the water nothing much has changed. We visited all of our favorite old spots and some new ones and were not disappointed. Virgin Gorda is basically gone, but that just meant that we got to Anegada sooner! Yay for us.Thank you for helping us to book a memorable trip. We will be back! »
Charter January 19-27, 2018 St Thomas-St Thomas : Second beautiful feedback of TWIN's guests:
"We had a greatcharter aboard the Twin. Captain Nathan, Laura, Jake, all werewonderful - outgoing and easy to be around. We were not lackinganything on this charter, and they did a great job catering to the specificdesires and needs of our gang. Food was great - not too heavy instyle but plenty of it to keep people satiated. We went everywhere wewanted to and Nathan was very flexible about where & when. The boatis great - maybe some design choices could have been better thought out, butthey were not material to our enjoyment. We were very grateful tohave serviceable WiFi (and the cell coverage in the BVI has become amazinglygood). As for toys, they had a complete set of snorkel gear whichwas nice, and the tender was able to pull even some of our bigger crew forwaterskiing. Might be nice if there were a way to accommodate rigidpaddleboards or kayak instead of the inflatable ones, but they would probablybe too hard to stow.
As for the boat description, I honestly don't recall andprobably didn't pay much attention, but it's worth making sure people know theone master bedroom is significantly more spacious than the others. Again, didn't bother us since we didn't go on the charter to sit in astateroom, but it is a noteworthy difference.
They can feel free to use us as a reference - we wrote intheir log book so they can probably snap a picture of our entry and use it is areference!
Thank you for all the hard work in putting thistogether. It probably won't be our last charter!"

Guests' comment: "Everything was perfect, including the weather!"Broker's comment: "Thanks very much your part in creating life time memories for the X Family".
Charter Bequia-Canouan, 23-30 December 2017 :
Family n°1 :"Both our families loved our week aboard TWIN - the captain was very attentive, safe and taught our kids about sailing….. the cook was really a chef - delicious food at every meal catering carefully to everyone’s likes/dislikes and appeasing kids and adults… and the new mate was a great addition to the team - good with the kids, delightful to be around and an excellent cocktail maker! The boat itself is spacious and modern… we enjoyed all of the water toys…. and had a wonderful sail in the Grenadines. We highly recommend TWIN and it’s crew!"
Family n°2: "The captain was great. We did a lot of sailing and Nathan was very comfortable and knowledgeable of the boat. He was also very open and comfortable with the guests (including the children) helping to sail, pull the ropes, manage the anchor, etc which was very much appreciated and enjoyed. Chef Laura was also great. Her food was delicious and she went out of her way to make everyone (including those with specific food preferences) very happy. After a few days of enjoying Laura's cooking, we chose to eat more on the boat vs. in restaurants. We particularly enjoyed fresh lobster and fresh fish from the local fisherman, as well as lots of fresh fruit and vegetables and delicious homemade desserts. Laura was also very open to allowing my daughter to help in the galley. Jake was also very helpful and a nice 3rd crew member. He made sure everyone was happy and he was open to help out with anything. The yacht was extremely comfortable. State rooms had plenty of space and amenities for everyone to feel relaxed. Common areas were well maintained and clean. The boat was in very good condition with no problems. We spent a lot of time on the flybridge especially when we were sailing. Boat was well equipped with plenty of activities. We enjoyed the snorkel equipment, kayaks, sea-doos, paddle-boards and waterskiiing".Charter Porto-Cervo-Porto Cervo, August 12-19, 2017:Broker’s comment :

2. Daniel knew the best times to be at certain spots and of course which anchorages and islands to go to. He was particularly good in planning the trip to the Baths for early morning before they got crowded.
3. All three of the crew were great with the kids. The kids loved them and didnt want to go home. They have been asking if they can go back next year.

Broker comment: Thank you for doing such a great job and making the guests vacation a huge success.broker\'s comment from Antigua boat show, December 2015The food was excellent and it was interesting to see how the crew worked together to help the Chef throughout the meal. Portions might have been too generous but I know how crew want to impress on these occasions. I find it crucial to offer fresh and local food and the chef made a point to explain the origin of the seafood all the way through the lunch which was great.
