MORE MAGIC Testimonials
Fantastic feedback from the clients:
They preferred the Grenadines over the BVI’s which they did with us/you two years ago – thought the people were more friendly and the islands closer together / so less sailing time
The staff / boat / weather / crew were all brilliant and they may look into charting the boat again for possibly Christmas 2014
So thank you for all the time and effort you gave me with this booking, we have very happy clients.
I meant to contact you as soon as we returned, however, I was overwhelmed with urgent matters.
I am pleased to report that Alex and Emma were terrific. Not only did they preform flawlessly they were excellent company.
Emma's skill in the galley was truly outstanding.
More Magic was just fine, however, I think that for our next charter we would like to have a somewhat larger boat.
We are thinking that our next trip will be to the Grenadines.
As More Magic is coming out of charter this year we would like to know what boat Alex and Emma next take over as we
would like to be with them again.
Thanks again for your help and support."
New Year's charter 2013
I just got off the phone with Nick and he was just thrilled with his charter on MORE MAGIC. He said the boat was perfect for him and his family and he thought you were a very solid crew. He also commented how difficult it is to find a yacht of MM’s size with such integrity and that goes for you as well. Sandy Carney

"We thought last year's charter was perfection but 2012 went one better. The good weather helped but Alex and Emma really excelled themselves on this charter. It is rare that you get a crew who are really good company, but they are. Emma's cooking is the best we have ever encountered on a yacht. She did us proud in 2011 but this year was even more special. Alex's knowledge and experience made the trip from St Lucia to Grenada very relaxing and contributed to some great sailing and covering everywhere we wanted to visit'
We defy anyone to improve upon the combination of More Magic and her wonderful crew, Alex and Emma"
Best wishes and thank you both for giving the Wilkinsons and ourselves such a great time.
Hugh and Helene
More Magic is a splendid new sailing yacht offering beautiful comfort and furnishings. The personable crew of Captain and Chef are delightfully accommodating. Our meals, usually served on the upper deck, were exquisite. Our excursions to shore by power launch or by kayak were enjoyable and educational. The time of my husband and I aboard More Magic was the luxurious sailing experience of a lifetime.

As if Magic wasn’t enough, you promised more.. and delivered!
Thanks Emma and Alex for making our charter a truly marvellous 10 days of discovery. From the moment we arrived boat side at Marigot Bay, St Lucia to our final stop at Secret Harbour Grenada, you helped in making every moment of the journey truly magical.
We’ll be back for more Magic!
Till the next time.
Chris and Sharon Hill.
Our charter through the BVI’s was great. ‘More Magic’ is a beautiful brand new yacht with a great layout. Alex and Emma are extremely professional and provided us with exceptional service and overall attention to detail. We can’t wait to book our next trip aboard More Magic.

We thought our holiday on More Magic was going to be wonderful, but the week we have just had exceeded all our expectations. We chartered this amazing and beautiful yacht for one week vacation, going from St Lucia to the Grenadines. Some of the most beautiful beaches and sailing in the world! The boat was the best we have ever sailed. Spacious and such comfortable accommodation; very clean, beautifully decorated and well maintained.
And what a crew! Service and professionalism of the crew was first rate! Alex and Emma were the reason why this holiday really exceeded all expectations. We felt that we were in one of the best hotels that moved each day to yet another fabulous location. Emma’s cooking was just marvellous and inspired! Three meals a day and nothing ever served up twice, the food was creative, healthy and delicious. We felt totally pampered and safe at all times.
Since we have had many previous crew and yachting trips we honestly say you are the best in 20 years of chartering. All I can say is thank you again for another wonderful cruise and guess what – we will be back. Thanks !!!

We have spent a great time with the crew of More Magic. Alex found us the most amazing spots in the Caribbean and Emma’s food was just amazing. Both of you are doing such an excellent job and you can see that in every detail. I am looking forward to our next trip with you!

Dear Alex and Emma,
What a fantastic 10 days we had in Antigua, it was truly MAGIC and greatly enjoyed by all. Sadly we did not do enough sailing due to social commitments but the reach along the East coast of Antigua was memorable for the way the boat performed, she is the perfect cruising boat, comfortable and lively, I have already mentioned her to several friends as the best way to enjoy the delights of the Caribbean. Best of all was your company, you are a smashing couple and I really enjoyed our chinwags in the evenings. Emma, your cooking was a revelation, I didn't know it was possible to be so pampered and not need to let out a notch or two on my belt, it was wonderful.
Again, many thanks to you both for a really great holiday,
Brian Smullen, Dublin.
Alex and Emma
Thank you so much for all your kindness in making our time aboard ‘More Magic’ so enjoyable. We look forward to sailing with you again in the future.
Diana and Terry, Dublin.
Thanks again for a fantastic week and we so look forward to seeing you here in NYC and sailing the New England coast with you this summer.
Mike and Donna, NYC
I wanted to let you know how very much Helene and I enjoyed our week with you both on More Magic. She is a wonderful boat that fully deserves the terrific crew that she has in you two. We will definitely be back!!
Hugh and Helene, NYC
""Unexpected delights every day. This vacation surpasses most other. Our boys were overjoyed. Lived happily without TV, Video Games and Computers and really relaxed.
Food was amazing and Emma's intuitive ability allowed her to know what we wanted before we even knew.
Our Captain has us all feel so safe as we relied on his amazing ability and concerns for our safety and pleasure. Alex our Captain is a born leader and I suspect that he is a rare gem in the worlds of Captains.
I wanted a special adventure for my family after a very challenging 2 years and we got it. We leave renewed, inspired and grateful. We won't forget the magical whales, orange moon, fireworks, incredible food and the nurturing care which came from Emma and Alex. We will be back.
Dori, Russ, Russell, Will and Thomas.
