A week in paradise - where days melted into each other and the moon shone fully and bright at night. Snorkeling, fishing, scuba diving, surfing, wake-boarding, tubing, hiking, collecting sea glass, night swimming and still we managed hours of games, reading & relaxing. Thank you Richie, Hillary & Matt for a fabulous week. The meals were masterful & creative - a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. Thank you Richie for such wonderful breakfasts, lunches, snacks, dinners & desserts & Happy 50th birthday to you! Hillary- you are a wonderful hostess- fun & joyful, attentive to our every need and you have a special talent for setting a shinning table! Love that! Matt - you are a fabulous captain and super fun. Thanks for taking us fishing, tubing, snorkeling, surfing and arranging scuba etc...We loved Lady Katlo and it is clear that you all lover her as well. Thank you for making our week in the BVI so memorable! We hope our paths will cross again on land or at sea.

All of the above! Your ability to provide first class service in a relaxing "family" atmosphere was masterful and deeply enjoyable.
Thank you! Bud

Hi this is Kate! Thank you for having us and allowing us to do so many new things. And thank you Richie for cooking vegetarian for me every meal.
It was amazing!- Kate & Lee
"Great food, great fun, phenomenal service and fun sailing. Second time on Lady Katlo and each trip is better than the last! As always, Matt and Hillary are simply amazing. Not sure the owner of that boat has any idea what kind of “gems” he has on his hands, but he probably should. They are awesome. So accommodating, great with the kids, always up for anything with a smile and a wonderful attitude. So very sad to leave. We will be back!" -- Langley
"Our trip on Lady Katlo was nothing short of fantastic. We are most appreciative of Hillary, Matt and Richie - you are real pros at what you do. No complaints, we had a ton of fun and were REALLY Sad to leave." -- Hilary
Thank you so much for a memorable and relaxing vacation! Hillary, Richie and Matt are wonderful hosts. The food was fantastic and Matt and Hillary are the most pleasant people to be around..
Thank you! Connie and Mike

New Years 2015/16
We could never have imagined this trip; how magnificent it was, the amount of fun we had, and meeting you wonderful people! Thank you for your incredible hospitality and for leaving us with so many life-long memories. Let us know if you are ever in New Jersey or New York City - we would LOVE to meet up! Keep in touch!! Have fun on all of your future adventures!
Everything about the trip was outstanding. The two crews absolutely made the trip – I’m sure there are other good boats and crews out there, but ours were over the top, crazy good. Obviously, the BVI is a special place, with lots of options for things to see and do - throw in large quantities of excellent food and drink and you have the recipe for a once in a lifetime trip.
What an amazing, relaxing, incredible ten days. Thank you Matt, Hillary, and Richie for spoiling us with a beautiful ship and surroundings. Everyday was a new adventure in eating with Rich's wonderful gourmet food. Matt and Hillary's hospitality was better than the Four Seasons. We saw incredible sea-life thanks to Matt's knowledge of the island secrets of where to snorkel, fish, and coves to anchor in. We enjoyed all the boat's toys; kayak, wake-board, paddle board, and water-skiing. Hillary was such an asset and she and Matt work as a wonderful team. Can't wait to come again next year.

Richie is DAH BOMB - great food!
The best food in the world!
Hilary is COOL
Matt knows how to turn a wheel
Thank you! – Luke
Thank you guys so much for the past week! Richie’s food was crazy good, possibly the best food I have ever had. Matt knows how to sail which is good, and thanks Hilary for cleaning our room when it smelled bad. Amazing trip!
Thank you! – Nick
This was the most amazing trip I have ever been on! I had so much fun learning about sailing a big sailboat when my only experience was sailing a four foot long opti. Matt is an amazing sailor and Hilary is so nice and fun to hang out with! Richie is hilarious and an amazing cook! I will be craving his food every morning at home. I really hope to come back next year! Again, this was amazing and thank you so much!
(hopefully) See you next year! Lexie
Fantastic! Unforgettable! Amazing – Thank you matt, Hilary & Richie for giving our family and friends the most exciting and flawless spring vacation. Your kindness and “can do” approach to everything was evident from the moment we climbed aboard. You all went above and beyond – Richie’s gluten-free cooking – absolutely the best. Hilary’s cheerful manner – and doing everything for us behind the scenes and also front and center – down to doing Nicholas and Max’s laundry1 Her afternoon cookies & the Rice crispy treats, Matts expertise on the boat in all kinds of ways beyond sailing (which is of course unmatched).
We went to the best snorkeling spots ever. Saw Sea Turtles, bubbly pool, (Necker Island – with champagne toasts), waterskiing, big dinners on the boat and so many more memories to last forever.
We thank you , we applaud you and we sincerely hope to do it again in 2016!
Until then – all our best – Hilary S.

Comment on the comfort onboard Lady Katlo: LK was spacious and tastefully decorated—more modern than overdone which was to our taste—so very comfortable. The photos were not misleading.
Comment on the condition of Lady Katlo: LK had just come from being redone in Fl Lauderdale and we were it’s first clients, so it was really like being on a brand new vessel.
Comment on the cleanliness of Lady Katlo: Perfectly spotless—our rooms were cleaned every day, sheets and towels changed mid-week, crew worked throughout to keep the common areas and the boat itself tip-top.
Comment on the congeniality of the Captain and crew: Captain Patrick is a doll and so were the crew. Super friendly.
Comment on the service of the Captain and crew: I thought we had a few ideas for our trip and had emailed them to the Captain earlier. But we soon realized that he had thought out a lovely tour of all the islands trying to make sure we got to see all the best spots the BVI had to offer in our limited time there. His organization was perfect!
Comment on the fun aspect of the Captain and crew: As a family of 5 we looked for “fun” mostly in our water sports, not really bars or restaurants, and The Captain and crew made sure we had access to anything we wanted to try—and we did a bunch of it—so yes, loads of fun.
Comment on the expertise of the Captain and crew: I know nothing about sailing so It is hard for me to judge, but I would have to say the we felt in highly skilled and professional hands. I understand that the captain as well as Emily (I think she might be called the steward?) both had transatlantic crossings under their belts, as well as multiple solo sails on their own boats. Expertise: check!
Comment on the quality of your meals: OMG!! Chef David was AMAZING—we ate so well we never wanted to leave the boat to go ashore, and so we never did! (The2 times we did eat in a restaurant it was nowhere near the caliber of the food on LK) So accommodating too, since the kids like meat and the parents fish, but never felt like an effort to make everyone happy. OK, I admit it, took photos of the food, it was beautiful.
Comment on the presentation of your meals: See above. Oh and the table was beautiful without the food as well.
Would you charter this yacht again? (Circle one) YES NO
YES YES YES
One last thing—
Initially I went along with my husband’s desire to charter a boat—not against it, but thought it would be a one-off, great experience. The quality of the experience from our first conversations with the broker to being helped through customs by the Captain and getting back to St. Thomas was perfect. We are both hooked, and will be looking to
charter again. And again.
I spent a wonderful week with my parents cruising on Lady Katlo in the southern Grenadines this February (2012). We had a truly wonderful week of sailing and were looked after beautifully by the catain and his crew.
