Charter July 17-24,2016 / Ste Lucia
I've had the best charter on Sorana. Main reason was that I was by myself. And the crew were the happiest crew I've seen on any other yachts.
The cuisine prepared on the yacht was prepared for my requested style and taste.
The area was fantastic. I like it more than St. Barts area. The nature was beautiful, and the whole area was very serene.
Thank you very much for arranging this charter for me.
Charter March 18-25, 2015 / BVI'S / Party of 4

Charter December 28 - January 8, 2015 / SXM / Family of 6/
Dear Marie, Dear Jean Marc,
Thank you both for your warmth and your hospitality over the last ten days.
We thank you, Jean Marc, for the good choices of this wonderful anchorages. You are a captain has given us a safe feeling in order to give us a relaxing time on your boat.
Marie, you are such an amazing Chef. It is unbelievable what you can make happen in that small kitchen. We were feeling like staying in a star restaurant and a six stars hotel each day.
If possible, we would like to come back once again to visit more places in the Caribbean with you.
Many thanks for the wonderful time ! V family
Charter October 10-21, 2014 in Martinique / Family of 6
Every thing went very well, the crew were great nothing was to much trouble for them kept us well fed with great food and the Captains local knowledge was fantastic
He took us to some Islands and bays
I have never heard of all in all I would recommend this boat and crew to any one"
Charter in July 19 - August 6, 2014 / Guadeloupe - Martinique / Family of 6
We had a marvelous time.
The boat was as we expected and the crew was very friendly.
Our kids loved the captain and Marie. Marie is a wonderful cook as well.
The route was nice and we decided day by day what to do and that worked out very well.
Islands were very different and lot of them where very beautiful.
We visited around 20 islands, some really small and some pretty big.
The only thing was that restaurants and bars where almost empty because of the low season.
So that was negative thing, on the other hand the marina’s where not crowded so that the positive thing.
Thank you. Y
October 10-24, 2013 / BVI'S - Familly of 6
The Sorana not the sort of boat I would have gone for a bit smaller than what I have used in the past and a lot less amenities however it worked out just fine for me and the wife I would strongly recommend it to anyone who wants total relaxation and to while away the days :)) was very sorry to leave
The Crew- best we have ever had :)) the captain's knowledge of the areas we visited were outstanding and he found beaches and restaurant's to die for Ann looked after the boat and feed us constantly :)) and they both made a mean cocktail :))
all in all the made the trip what is was outstanding in every way
please pass my comments on to them and i'm sure we will be back with them again"
Charter March 31st - April 6th, 2012 / SXM / 5 guests
I spoke with Mr. K. who is on Sorana this week.
I wanted to note that he is extatic about Marie's cooking wanted to know why I did not tell him explicitly how absolutely great she is!
And he is very happy with Jean Marc as well, who he finds congenial and knowledgeable, so thanks very much.
The only bad thing is that he cancelled a dinner reservation so they could instead eat on the boat, haha. He seems a delightful man and I am very appreciative of your efforts and those of the crew.
