Just finishing our charter. What an incredible week! The crew were fantastic and the meals were all 5-Star!
-Family Charter, Greece-
I wanted to let you to know that the charter was excellent. The crew were amazing and the chef incredible! We truly had the vacation of a lifetime. Thank you for your coordination and all extras!
-Family Charter, Croatia-
Missy is an expert on chartering in Greece and we had an amazing motor yacht cruise to 5 different islands. Her advice on everything from provisioning to working with the captain, was extremely helpful. On the business side, she was extremely professional, with the contracts and payments processing running very smoothly. On the pleasure side, we could not have enjoyed our week more. The boat was beautiful and the crew outstanding. Highly recommend using NJ Yacht Charters and Missy! We will be cruising again.
-Couples Charter, Greece-
We have used NJYacht Charters for years and have never been disappointed. They are thorough and know their business. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to have a hassle free, fun vacation.
-Couples Charter, New England-
We had the most glorious time. The crew were exceptional and the chef off the charts. Truly a sensational trip. Couldn’t be more appreciative of all the work NJcharters put into making this the trip of a lifetime.
-Family Charter, Croatia-
We recently took a family trip to Croatia. Thanks to Missy and company it went off without a hitch. She was able to put together an unbelievable itinerary. Without her, I highly doubt we would have had such a successful trip. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is looking for the trip of a lifetime.

Catamaran charter couples in the Caribbean! . Can I say wow! I love the deep blue sea and the husband surprised with this amazing surprise. Everyone is so helpful and I would recommend this to everyone I know. A+ A+ A+
-Anniversary Charter, Caribbean-
I have been on commercial cruises in the past, Carnival & Princess in the past and I really was not a huge fan. Even though we had a very large cabin with butler service there was way too many people versus crew for a personalized touch. For our 10 year wedding anniversary I decided to try something different. I was a little scared but when I contacted Missy over the phone she put my fears at ease. The motor yacht came with a full crew & chef. She handled everything for us, we really only had to show up and enjoy our vacation. The crew was fantastic and I would definitely do it all over again. If you want something special & memorable they can really make your dreams come true. Thank you Missy
-Couples Charter, Greece-
The charter was wonderful!! The boat, crew, islands and your recommendations were all spot on. Thank you !!! Croatia is a beautiful country. We loved the yacht and crew. They were just amazing!
-Friends Charter, Croatia-
It was FABULOUS! An experience the family will never forget. Our complements to the owner for a wonderful M/Y and especially for the crew who made our trip so memorable. Thank you again for helping us find the perfect Charter Yacht. Hopefully we can do this again soon.
-Family Charter, Bahamas-
Thank you Missy!! It was so wonderful. The Captain and crew were all fantastic and we all became fast friends. Throughout the charter, we had many fun activities, along with water sports and time to relax. We really enjoyed the wonderful food onboard. We did experience the Meltemi Winds for a few days, but there were plenty of harbors on the lee side of the islands that the Captain knew and anchored in each day to avoid any rough seas that might have been created by the Winds. It was a great charter!
-Family Charter, Cycladic Islands, Greece-
Our charter was the perfect way for three generations of our family to be on vacation together. Us old geezers, (me and Grandmom) were able to relax on board and enjoy the sun, while children and grandchildren ran at their own pace and enjoyed swimming, playing in the water, the beaches, and sliding down the water slide; it was go, go, go all day, with some exhausted but happy grandchildren at the end of each day. Grandmom and I could enjoy all from our comfortable loungers on the top deck. It was just fabulous. Great food, great crew, and loved the yacht. This could become an annual event.
-Family Charter, Three Generations, Caribbean-
Happy New Year Missy. Trip was perfect. The boat and crew were A+. I loved the deep sea fishing which was a first for me. The crew were awesome.
-Family Charter, Caribbean-
Great! Great! Great! You recommended the right yacht for us! And the crew were terrific! It could not have been better!
-Couples charter, Italy-
How great this charter was is impossible to explain. I just hope everyone has the chance to experience the Galapagos once in their lifetime. We were so close to the wildlife, it was incredible. And our Naturalist was superb. We loved swimming with the penguins and sea lions. There is no other experience like the Galapagos!
-Family charter, Galapagos-
We had the most FANTASTIC time! I couldn’t have asked for a better trip and most importantly, there is NO better crew out there! The boat was also amazing, many thanks for all.
-Friends Charter, Balearic Islands-
Hi, our charter exceeded our expectations. Each crew member was wonderful. The Family had an outstanding time.
-Family Charter, New England-
We had an outstanding time. The Captain was very professional, extremely skilled, knowledgeable, funny, and patient. And Sally? Need I say more? She was amazing, she came with me on my last 2 open water dives and made me feel so much more comfortable!! I can’t thank her enough for this. And she is so skilled at the bar, and helpful in every way. Love that girl!! Tammie is the sweetest person ever! Always aiming to please and always succeeding at that task! Jane, was very sweet, thoughtful, and very hard working! She does whatever needs to be done with grace, and continues to rise to the task at hand.
We loved that James went golfing with Ted! They had the BEST day! Their “bro-mance” lasted the entire trip. Tom is a genius! He is one of those guys that can “wear every hat,”. Matt, our Chef was an artist! A Culinary Whiz! Everything he made was filled with love and pride. Saying we were sad to leave was an understatement! Since our week onboard, no food compares to Matt’s cooking 🙁
The only thing that could have been better, is if we had stayed longer with them 🙂
-Family Charter, Caribbean-
Just home, and really miss the beautiful Society Islands. What a great time we had. I think Bora Bora is our most favorite island now in the world. The people were so nice. We were welcomed on board with leis and tossed our leis in the water at the end of the charter, to draw us back again. The yacht was perfect, and hard to beat the crew. Overall it was the perfect charter in the most perfect charter location with the most perfect crew!
-Couples Charter, French Polynesia-
It was very enjoyable! The crew was great, every one of them. We enjoyed every harbor and anchorage. High marks all around.
-Family Charter, Cycladic Islands, Greece-
I think we all agreed that the combination of yacht, the crew, and the surroundings were wonderful. We hated to see it end and would seriously think about repeating the voyage. The vacation was fabulous.
-Family Charter, Society Islands, French Polynesia-
What an amazing charter location! We could not have asked for a better week! Alaska is truly spectacular! However we know we would not have seen half of what we saw if not for our great and very experienced crew. They knew where to go for us to see the whales bubble net feeding and explained everything to us as we watched. And the food was spectacular, especially those meals made from the salmon we caught, and the crab from the crab pots we helped set. This was an over the top experience and could end up as our most favorite charter ever. Seeing Alaska by private yacht is the only way to go. We pitied those on cruise ships we saw, way out on the horizon, while we were right next to the shoreline watching bears stroll along.
-Family Charter, Alaska-
Every member of the crew was professional and they really anticipated our every need. The yacht and staterooms were spotless, the food was consistently delicious with outstanding presentation at every meal. I was fearful having asked for healthy meals (wasn’t sure all of our guests agreed!). The presentation was stunning and each meal was unique, healthy and deliciously memorable!
It was wonderful getting to see old favorite haunts and discover new ones. The flexibility of being able to choose our own way and spend as much time as we liked in any area was exhilarating. We were over the top satisfied with this method of traveling and can’t wait to do it again!
-Couples charter, Caribbean-
From the moment we stepped on board to the day we waved good-bye the charter was outstanding, there was never a moment of disappointment. We loved the crew, and consider them now part of the family.
We are back in Athens after an outstanding charter. The boat, captain, chef, mate and weather were all terrific, we couldn’t be more pleased and are already talking about a longer trip next year .Thanks for all your guidance, information and recommendations.
-Couples Charter, Saronic Islands, Greece-
What a fabulous charter. Beautiful boat, inside and out. Boat was clean, comfortable and well cared for. The Captain was fantastic. Low key and willing in every regard. Our Chef was equally competent. A good caring cook, and an able seaman. We ate like kings and queens, with everything coming out of a small stove and oven. I would charter the boat again in a minute if and when we charter again. Thank you for arranging a great charter for us.
-Family Charter, Maine-
Thank you for your recommendations. We loved our charter in the Balearic Islands and were so glad we included Ibiza! However were very glad we heeded your advice for a one way charter from Palma to Ibiza rather than cruising back to Palma to disembark. We had more time on the islands, rather than cruising. Great yacht! Great crew! And the food was stupendous
-Couples Charter, Balearic Islands, Spain-
Who knew that Croatia produced such spectacular wines and had such terrific boutique wineries to visit. We particularly enjoyed out visit to the Zlatan Otok Winery, with the under-sea tasting room, looking out at the bottom of the sea. What a great and unusual experience to add to the Bucket List. It was also very interesting to visit Grgic Hills Winery started by Mike Grgic who previously started Grgich Hills Estate Winery in Napa Valley and understand that the Grgic Family is Croatian. The coast of Croatia could not be more beautiful for cruising, swimming and enjoying the sun. It was a fabulous trip. And don’t let me forget the fresh oysters and all the truffles-Yum. Our Chef dinghied over to a shell farm while we were on land, and we had the freshest raw oysters we have ever had.
-Family Gulet Charter, Croatia-
The Bahamas is all about fun in the sun. You picked the perfect boat for us, filled with water toys, and the perfect itinerary in the Exumas. Loved feeding the swimming pigs. And we all just really enjoyed the miles of great beaches, and anchoring in shallow water water off of the beach for hours for water sports fun. Thank you for the great beach picnic. The week could not have been better. We had all the kids in one spot for meals and not glued to their cell phones. We created some very special family memories on this trip. .
-Family Charter, Exuma Islands, The Bahamas-
Chartering a catamaran in the BVI’s really is the perfect family vacation. There are so many anchorages to visit, and on a catamaran, it is so easy to get into and out of the water. As you know we were worried about the hurricane damage from Irma and Marie, but really, other than missing a few old friends on land, like the Bitter End Yacht Club, the beaches and anchorages were very clean and lovely. The Captain knew just where to go for the best coral gardens post Hurricane, and we were glad to see Foxy’s up and running as always. We did bypass Soper’s Hole as you suggested. It was another great family trip.
-Family Charter, The British Virgin Islands, Caribbean-
The coral we saw snorkeling was outstanding. Belize is just a lovely country on land and sea and people are so friendly. The country is clean and the locals clearly take great pride in their country. We had quite the political discussion with our taxi driver which was very interesting that everyone is so involved in what is happening. We loved visiting Lighthouse Reef and seeing the red footed booby birds-how often do you see those birds? We wish there were more yachts available in Belize, but we really appreciate the time taken to find us our great yacht and crew, and had a terrific charter, once again.
-Family charter, Belize-
The Tobago Cays are lovely, loved seeing all of the sea turtles. We are really glad we ventured south from the BVI’s for this charter. Bequia is so quaint and different, and we really like Mayreau, just a little island moving along in yesteryear. Overall the Grenadines were perfect and thank you for recommending that we disembark in St. Vincent rather than sail back to St. Lucia. And of course, the food on board, can’t say enough about how good it was. We felt like family when we left.
-Friends Charter, The Grenadines, Caribbean-
Overall, it was a great trip. We had our taste of chic on the Amalfi Coast, with an easy overnight to the Aeolian Islands. We loved Panarea and Stromboli. Where else can you dance into the night with the Stromboli Volcano providing the fireworks. The food was outstanding. We wish we could take our Chef home with us. We asked for local foods, and wines, and he delivered. Thank you for the recommendation to cruise from Naples to Sicily and include the Aeolian Islands.
-Friends Charter, Naples and the Aeolian Islands, Italy-
We are so glad we saw the more traditional side of the Cyclades, i.e. more “local” islands. We do like Santorini but may not ever visit Mykonos again. Naoussa on Paros, Syros and Milos islands are fabulous. We had a great anchorage on Kinthos with only one taverna on the beach, otherwise deserted. The crew did a great beach barbecue for us on Rinia. And we discovered some very good Greek wines, that the crew recommended. And you probably know that the Captain has his own special fisherman that come visiting in their little fishing boats bringing fresh fish for spectacular meals made by our Chef. Could not have been better. We are glad that Mother Nature and the Winds allowed us to cruise these islands.
-Family Charter, Cyclades Islands, Greece-
You guys could not have done better by us. Great crew, great yacht, lots of fun was had by all. We are already talking about next year. We loved the Maddalena Islands, and Sardinia. I think next year though we want to see the Cinque Terre. Our Captain was telling us all about these cool old villages we can visit. And see Portofino, where I have always wanted to go. Talk to you next year.
