Charter November 19-26, 2016 - Tortola-Tortola:
As many of you are aware Billie and I celebrated our 25thAnniversary with our family on a weeklong sailing charter in theCaribbean. To say it was amazing would be an understatement. Truly,words just cannot describe how ridiculously, stupidly, fantasticallyawesome this vacation was.We sailed on a Split Second, a 62 foot Lagoon sailing catamaran. Theyacht was insane and the crew seems like family to us now that we’vespent time with them. If you can get on this yacht – do it. Trust me you will not regret it.

We experienced one outstanding week at Split Second . The boat is in perfect shape, with all equipment and installations ( including water sport toys ) organized, clean and charming.The crew was very nice, patient, extremely cordial and incredibly dedicated to all safety issues. We were very pleased to see a young captain ( Ryan ) so mature and focus to make us comfortable all the time. We rated them 11 out of 10.For sure we should charter Split second again .

Feedback from the broker : « I have just had a short text from one of the guests on the SPLIT SECOND charter. She said that the crew are fabulous, the food fantastic and that they are having a wonderful time. Thanks again for all of your assistance. This wasn’t an easy one as there were so many players involved ». Charter 5-12 February 2015 - BVI's
‘’The Crew of Split Second are first class: ever watchful of their passengers safety and enjoyment. The skipper Ryan is an experienced sailor, ably supported by Jason. Veronika commands the galley, producing delicious and tasteful food of the best quality.
The crew are attentive and delightful, doing everything possible to ensure their guests are having an entertaining and relaxing holiday on on Split Second, which is a very well appointed and comfortable craft.
For an adventurous cruise through the B V I, it would be hard to better. We would do it all again.’’Charter (December 2014 ) - Charter in tandem - BVI's
"Hi Veronika, Ryan and Jason,
Still having trouble coming back to reality after the wonderful trip. When I describe the vacation, other than family, it’s been all about the service and luxury and attention of our crew — of course the Islands are beautiful, but it’s the Split Second and you three that I will remember more vividly. There was always a drink offered. The food was amazing (thank you Veronika). Fresh coffee always ready when I got up. Towels were handed to me as soon as I climbed out of the water. There was always a hand to help me off/on the dinghy (thus making sure my camera didn’t end up at the bottom of the sea!). The advice and insights about the places we passed and stopped were invaluable. And your willingness to coordinate with the other crew was especially appreciated as it allowed our big family of 16 to better enjoy each other — and Ryan your ability to maneuver so close to the other boat that we could link together was impressive!
Wishing all three of you a wonderful 2015. Thank you for sharing your Christmas with all of us and making it so special".Charter (June 2014)
We really enjoyed the charter. In the past we sailed the Virgin Islands - it was wonderful seeing Corsica and Sardinia
The crew were awesome - which made our experience even that much more enjoyable. We felt very much at home with them. They were very accommodating - always helpful. Their preparation for us and our journey showed - They were engaging and excited to show us more of Sardinia and Corsica.Was the yacht clean, well maintained and comfortable for your group?
Absolutely. Being brand new it was quite amazing.How would you describe the quality of meals served on board?
Superb! Veronica has it down - and Jason and Ryan were always there to assist. Meal time was wonderful. The food was fresh and prepared to our liking.
yes - looking at Split Second when they get to the BVIsIf so, would you like to charter with the same yacht and crew?
Yes - We all want to sail with Ryan, Veronica and Jason again.Charter ( May 2014)
"We had a wonderful stay on Split Second. The crew was very attentive and friendly and what a skill of the captain and his assistant. Split Second is very luxurious and offers great comfort. The guest rooms are modern and the beds are really good.
The great advantage of the catamaran is the large space the boat offers. Split Second is very stable during sailing and does not heel over, which we first realilized at sea. The speed during our sailing trip was easily up to 12 knots which is pretty fast for a yacht. Ryan and Veronica thank you so much for a wonderful experience. Hopefully we will see you next year.
Great boat, very nice crew. We've had a wonderful time on Split Second with sunny weather, water sports and delicious food. The boat has lots of space. The children enjoyed jumping on the trampolines between the bows. The best place to be is on the expansive flybridge with a fantastic view during sailing and at anchor. We will definitely come back".
CordulaCharter (May 2014)
"The first week of May, we (4 adults and 2 children age 12) sailed along the Spanish south coast with Split Second.
We were lucky to join in on Split Second’s maiden voyage.
This ship is impressively spacious; we had a huge bedroom with private bathroom.
We received a warm welcome from the crew Ryan and Veronika, a perfect tandem.
She works miracles in the kitchen and is also a skilled deckhand.
Ryan is a reliable captain, we felt very save in his hands.
Even being below deck he spotted dolphins and swordfish for us: amazing!
The dinghy is more than a taxi to drop you of at the beach; our children had a wonderful time hanging behind it on a tube or ski’s.
This rock steady Super Cat offered us the holiday of our life!"
