Read on for some real fun in the sun!
Catamaran FeliciaIt's that time of year again. The Fall Charteryacht shows have just ended and yours truly has a "boatload" of treasures to unveil for you.
I guess it's no secret. Our world has become a bit more complicated, more challenging and certainly more stressful. On a positive note, finally, the election is over and we have a new president waiting in the wings. Wherever your support was placed, it is a relief to have it done.
I would venture a guess that if anyone needs a Stress Buster charter, after this campaign, it would be both President Elect Obama, and Senator John McCain! But I haven't heard from them yet.
So, folks, this one's for you....The yachts of the Virgin Islands have responded to your need for a break by offering so many options for "just getting out of Dodge" for a while!
There are new yachts, new crews, new cruising areas, new toys, new chartering terms for 5 days (no additional charge) and new Special offers (up to 10% off selected yachts and more!) to make it even easier to climb on that plane with your frequent flyer miles and just leave it all behind for a while. And you can look at it this way: When you are gone you won't be driving those expensive gasoline miles, you won't be burning as much energy in your home and, when you return, you will have a whole fresh outlook on life!
Visit with some of my favorites below. There's plenty more where these came from. All ya gotta do is call, and I'll be right there, with even more Special pricing and options for the weary charter client.
Here's Capt. Chris and Julie Bennett aboard their new acquisition, Catamaran Felicia. This cat is just plain gorgeous. 65' HUGE and magnificently appointed. This yacht carries 8 in supreme comfort and style. You can visit her at www.yachtfelicia.com. Ask me about special offers on this extraordinary yacht. For as little as $5875 per couple (based on 4 couples) you can join Felicia on her cruise of the Virgin Islands while treated to gourmet feasts and fine wines.
Make sure you take a look right up top of this Blog! She's lovely!
From Swan Victoria:
To the left is a magnificent example of a winning appetizer. Every Charteryacht show would not be complete without a judging of the cuisine in all categories of a beautiful and satisfying meal.
Chef Martha, aboard the beautiful Swan, Victoria, and voted Best Over-all Chef at the show created the winning masterpiece. It is Tangled Shrimp with Pineapple Chili-garlic sauce, served on a Pineapple wheel with avocado and baby green salad. Yum!
View this extraordinary yacht at www.charterbrochure.com/victoria for more information. She is fast, sleek with a consumately professional (and did I say "fun") crew?
Boys (and Girls) with their toys! And there was no shortage of them at this year's show. Here is Capt. Jonny and 1st mate and Chef Kelly of Catamaran Double Feature posing next to their Guitar Man Wii game. It is fun for everyone! It is one of the few toys that do not float on this terrific cat.
You can visit them up close and personal at their lovely website: www.doublefeaturecharters.com.
OFF THE BEATEN TRACK: BOCAS DEL TORO, PANAMA!! OLE!
Familiar faces in exciting new places!!

Fran and Steuart Rattle of Catamaran Two If By Sea Present:
I wonder how many of you ever thought about a dream vacation in Panama!! Yes, Bocas del Toro (Mouth of the Bull), Panama, to be exact. This is an ideal cruising area for Summertime chartering. The wind always blows and there are NO HURRICANES! I have spent several summers at that Latitude (or close to it in Venezuela). No Visas needed for US Citizens. I guarantee you that will be greeted often during your cruise aboard these waters that you will be met my dolphins without number. They will surround your yacht and make you laugh! The reefs are pristine, the water clear and warm, and the crowds, NONE! Most Panamanians speak some English, and are charming. This will be a special time aboard this lovely, spacious catamaran with a wonderful, expert crew who have traveled the world together. Now is the time to explore this fabulous area as it won't be a secret for very long.
Getting there: I just did a quick search on www.kayak.com (using PTY-Panama City, as a destination from Chicago O'Hare). My search brought up very inexpensive air fares, all under $400 round trip! WOW!
Blogspot of their adventures to be announced!
Check out the area...I would love to stowaway!
Note: This new adventure will be available for around $2333/per person/with 6 passengers traveling and which includes all meals and standard bar. This is a very reasonable price especially when the low airfare is considered.
This excellent tour will be available starting July 2009.
