FREEDOM 120 Crew Profile

Growing up in Camden, Maine, just about everything Matt has done in his life has been around water and boating. He started sailing at a very early age and ever since he has pursued a life working above and below the sea. He is a certified and accomplished SCUBA Dive Instructor with years of experience in the Virgin Islands. Matt has worked aboard M/Y Freedom for several years, and spent 24 months being groomed for Captainship by George Custer, the previous captain and owner of Freedom. In addition to his diving credentials, Matt holds a 200/500 Ton USCG license as well as CPR, First AID, and Rescue Diver credentials. Captain Matt’s knowledge of the BVI’s pristine diving spots and snug anchorages will make your charter truly one to remember.

FREEDOM 120 Testimonials
You are going to think " boy these people sure are a lot more responsive when they want something. Like a yacht! Ha! So sorry for the delay in responding.The following is my review and because I'm an iPad only girl, I will mail the questionnaire to u if you want. REVIEW: "We had so much fun on the Freedom! Great value for a fun motor yacht with every ocean toy you could want and a fabulous crew-- including a fabulous chef (why ever dine off the boat?!) and a dive master as the ship's captain! We didn't even get around to using all the fun toys and the wonderful crew really MADE our trip. A great, festive choice for a memorable vacation! "
On a scale of 1-10 it was about a 15. This being our first and now not last charter we realize it’s all about the crew. The Captain put together an all-star team from Chef Joseph and Sarah to Travis. They were terrific. Attentive when they needed to be and a ghost when they didn’t. The food and the attention to the smallest details were amazing. Cant say enough…we will be back.
We had the best holiday on the Freedom 120.
Matt , Joseph , Armando , Laura, and Sara gave us a carefree and wonderful holiday. They were so professional and organized it made for a completely relaxing and enjoyable time for every one of us.
Joseph our Chef far exceeded our highest expectations. If we could convince him to leave his life in the islands and come to San Diego we would!!
The diving and snorkeling was beautiful. The waters were so full of life. The Dads had an amazing time and felt Matt's diving experience was a real asset to the boat and its guests. Our kids loved the crew and they were so patient and accommodating to their every request. All of us were so pampered to a degree none were expecting.
We are sold 100% on every single aspect! It was a sad day when we had to say goodbye to the Freedom 120 which we called home for 8 nights. We will be booking our next summer vacation soon.
Truly first class! Thank you. The Lischewski Family
The trip was excellent…..great crew………….all expectations were exceeded….thanks
MARCH 30-APRIL 5, 2015
It was a wonderful trip all around. Thank you very much for suggesting it.
The boat was very spacious and comfortable. The decor was not to our taste, but that's not really important.
The crew was wonderful. Relaxed but serious about their work; very professional yet fun to be with. The food was over the top.
Water toys and diving option were a big plus.
Our high expectations were exceeded.
Thanks again, Owen
"They were unbelievable, fantastic. Would book again in a second "
JUNE 5, 2013
We're settled back in. The trip was a blast. Told George, it was the best money we've ever spent. He, by the way, was truly excellent, as was the crew. A plus, plus, plus, plus. The kids did tons of things: snorkel,scuba, night dive, ship wreck dive, fishing, jet skied, Sea-Bob, hiking,sailing, swimming, lounging, tons of eating, video games at night on the Xbox, water trampoline, tubing, water skiing, wakeboarding ... and they become the first customers to leap off the top of the boat (about 25 feet) into the water ... with George's blessing of course! I'm not sure it gets any better!
