Some of the most beautiful coastline in the world on a wonderful yacht with the most fantastic crew and owner. Couldn't ask for any more.... friendship, care and hospitality. Now the wife wants to come next year!!

We're so glad you enjoyed your trip, Morgan! It's always a pleasure hosting your boys' getaway - but this year's "wellness retreat" was particularly entertaining. I guess your wife is jealous that you enjoyed our onboard spa services without her ;-)
