Dear Captain Andy,


Darren on Yacht Splendidum
It has been nearly a decade and a half since my family and I stepped off the deck of Splendidum for the last time following an amazing week exploring the beautiful Virgin Islands. I was still a boy at the time, and that was my first trip to the tropical paradise that is the Caribbean. I still refer to that trip as “the perfect vacation” - and it certainly was for me. I have grown up with a love of water and any activity based around it, and also a particular fascination with the ocean. I could not have imagined a more exciting experience for a boy my age (then 13) than staying a week aboard a yacht and exploring the crystal clear waters and pristine beaches of the Virgin Islands.

I remember that trip aboard Splendidum as though it were yesterday, certainly because I have thought so often of the experience and shared many stories with friends and family over the years. It truly was the perfect trip, and I have carried the memories with me as I’ve grown up, always hoping to have the opportunity to re-create it at some time. I have visited many places throughout the world, from northern Europe to the southern Pacific, but a yacht charter in the Virgin Islands has remained the one trip I feel like I must experience again.


Darren and his Wife
My wife and I have been looking forward to booking a charter for some time now. It has been an absolute pleasure re-establishing contact with you and Gaile, and working with you to make sure our charter is as enjoyable as the one you hosted for my family all those years ago. The map you sketched of our journey through the islands hangs in a frame on the wall of my family’s lake cabin here in Missouri. It often sparks a conversation about the many beautiful locations we visited aboard Splendidum. I can’t wait to return to some of those same places and to share the experience with my wife and friends.

I have attached a recent picture of my wife and me. As you can see I’ve grown some since that skinny kid who caught the barracuda.

All of the information and guidance you have provided thus far is extremely appreciated. We hope to have our trip booked soon, and if it is anything like the trip aboard Splendidum, it will again be the perfect vacation.

Best regards,
Darren Bevard


Dear Andrew:

We did not realize the magnificent impact you had on our charter onboard Motu. Yes, you said the catamaran was magnificent, and Danny and Jeff were exceptional; we did not realize how right you were. Motu and crew were fantastic in all respects. All 4 couples in our party are well traveled, with multiple vacations each year. We all agree that this was the best, well, one of the best, vacations we have ever enjoyed. The thanks goes to you, Andrew, and to Jeff and Danny

Every aspect about Motu was well above our expectations. The crew; the catamaran itself seemed absolutely brand new; it was well maintained and spotless in every regard. The crew, Danielle and Jeff, were very friendly, accommodating and patient with all our requests. Their service was excellent, and they obviously paid attention to the requests we had made prior to boarding Motu. We had this feeling that the crew was on the lookout at all times to see that we were enjoying ourselves; this crew did maximize our vacation. Here is an accomplished Captain and a world-class chef doing what they do best. Our group is very demanding. We were consistently impressed and looked forward to each meal with anticipation; just "outstanding", impeccable meals served with the right wines. hmmm!!!!

Yes, we will be booking Motu, Danielle and Captain Jeff in the future. Faithfully,

Matt P. and Party

Captain Dave & Desiree:
What a special trip you've provided for us this week. You both have such a gift for making us feel at home in your home, and applying such personal touches to make it feel designed "Just For Us".

From the history lessons of the region, to the spectacular diving and snorkeling, through perfect meals and relaxing evenings, we could not have imagined a more perfect vacation.

Thank you for taking such time with Carol to certify her in scuba, with Patrick to expand his curiosities, and with Joan to make her at home in your underwater world. We can never repay you for this fantastic adventure.
