It was truly a "dreamvacation"!  The boat and crew exceeded our expectations in every way! It was a score of 11 on a scale of 1 to 10.  

Each of the crew memberswere so professional, kind, helpful, friendly - every step of the journey.  My kids adored them as did all the adults.   All 4 of them werealways working hard and always doing so with a friendly smile.  They madeeverything perfect for us and we always felt very safe. The food was amazing.The adults and kids all agreed that the meals on the boat were much better thanany restaurant we went to.  David did a remarkable job on every meal.Elena was always right on point offering anything we might need - she kept therooms so nice and clean the entire time and somehow managed to always do itwithout us knowing.  She set up the tables for meals beautifully and herservice was impeccable. She is an absolute delight. 

Jay (Jerome) was awesome! He was amazing to watch work the sails.   He always had the biggestsmile and always gave us a good laugh.  He is such a hard worker and wasalways willing to help us with anything. 

I can't imagine there is abetter Captain out there than Davide. He was amazing. He made us feel so safeand guided us to many incredible spots we would not have known about. Hecouldn't have been more kind and again like all the other crew he was alwayswilling to help with anything. 

The crew was exceptional -truly outstanding.

I have just talked with the client , she is plenty satisfied with their cruise on board of MAITA’S.The captain Marco and his crew has work very hard to offer to all the party an unforgettable cruise.They have appreciated their professionalism, the discretion , the long experience and the excellent cousin .I want thank all the Team , I will give only super positive feedback on the boat and I hope to have soon other clients.


Charter during summer 2012:

The boat was the best we have ever sailed. Spacious and comfortable accommodations. Very clean, beautifully decorated and well maintained. The crew did a good job of keeping everything in good working order and comfortable for the guests. It sailed beautifully and was very stable.
The food was amazing !!! Creatively prepared and well presented, Enora put out every effort to satisfy our requests for special things like lobster, scallops, and fresh caught fish. The drinks as well were creative, and generous. I'd give her a 10/10 on the food and drink. It takes really special people to meet complete strangers and be with them in close quarters for a week, while making them feel at ease and happy. Eddy, Enora, Guy and Emma are these people. Eddy is not only the captain, but sort of a tour operator as well. He arranged a driver and tour of the for us on Corsica. It was a good way to get a look at the island for an afternoon.

I would love to sail this boat and crew again sometime in the near future and do a longer sailing itinerary. The boat and crew are right for it. We had a really great time!!

Thanks again for suggesting this boat. It was better than expected and I would recommend it to anyone!!
